One Volcano = Twice As Much SO2 As All Of Europe’s Smokestacks

Wow.

Sulphur dioxide has been spurting too — 35,000 tons of it a day, more than twice the amount spewing from all of Europe’s smokestacks. The gas has spread across the Icelandic countryside, causing people to wheeze and trapping some indoors.

The record-setting amount of pollution has surprised even volcanologists in the middle of a major project funded by the European Union to understand the island’s fiery activity. They had been preparing for a repeat of the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption, which led to a billowing ash plume that grounded planes across Europe. “Everybody was expecting a big ash cloud, and now we have something totally different,” says Anja Schmidt, an atmospheric modeller at the University of Leeds, UK, who studies how volcanic gases spread.”

Returning to the PAGES2K graph from the Climate Audit post  …

Whatever happened around 1750 or so saved humanity from freezing to death. It doesn’t matter if it was CO2 (unlikely) or natural variation. We didn’t freeze to death. We should rejoice

 

Whatever Happened Here
