1816 & Global Cooling from Volcanoes

1816 Year Without a Summer
COMMENT: Marty, the NASA study is absolutely correct. I work in a different area of geological observations. When a volcano erupts, the ash creates global cooling reflecting the sunlight. You are correct that this global warming is a tax agenda.
Thanks for spreading the word
REPLY: Yes. Go to the beach on a partly cloudy day. When a cloud blocks the sun it suddenly gets cool. This is common sense. As far as volcanoes blocking the sun, well all someone has to do is read: The Year Without Summer: 1816 and the Volcano That Darkened the World and Changed History
TamboraMount Tambora erupted in 1816 and threw into the air so much ash that it snowed during the summer in New York City. It became known as 18-hundred-and-froze-to-death. This account from history tells the story that 1816 was a year when the sunlight could not penetrate the natural pollution from Tambora. As a result of a volcanic eruption at Mount Tambora in Indonesia, weather patterns were disrupted worldwide for months, allowing for excessive rain, frost, and snowfall through much of the Northeastern U.S. and Europe in the summer of 1816. The global cooling altered the natural weather and it resulted in a serious food shortage that set off a mass migration from New England to the Midwest within the USA as people were trying to find the sun. Some saw this as an omen and there was also a religious revival.
While wheat prices peaked in 1812 during to the War of 1812 between Britain and USA, we can see that going into 1817, prices soared again and made a strong reaction high due to weather. (see chart above)

Prices soared during this period of global cooling. What fools we mortals are to believe that we have the power to actually alter the climate. We can pollute a river or a stream and throw garbage on the street, but this will not alter the climate which has its own cycle. Just ask the people frozen in position when Pompeii erupted. The planet is far more powerful than we will ever be.
Sorry — it’s all about finding an excuse for taxation.
