As per usual, Willis gives a rather lengthy post. It’s somewhat interesting, but, it’s a few years behind Suyts. And, people are still trying to complicate things.
Still, it’s nice to see other people challenging the notion that volcanoes alter the global temperature.
I had this to say about volcanoes in 2013 ….
I don’t understand why people feel the necessity to complicate analysis’. In my view, the simpler, the better. When the answer is right in front of you, there’s no need for elegant and sophisticated analysis.
I don’t know, maybe I need to go further with this, but, I don’t feel the need. It’s clear. The mythology that volcanic eruptions have any linger effects on our temps is just that, a mythology, like the global temp average itself. Given a recent discussion at WUWT, I thought it may be informative to repost a post I wrote back in January.
Last year, I wrote a post about volcanoes and the temps HadCrut had recorded in the direct aftermath. Given the recent proclamations about volcanoes and their impact by a couple of pinheads posing as scientists, (Rahmy, Foster, Muller….. ) I thought we could revisit this for a bit while giving some ENSO information for some of the time periods.
Time and again, we see people stating that volcanoes impact our global temps, stating that they cause cooling. It is often simply accepted as fact. Let’s see if we can find any proof such a statement should be accepted as fact.
We looked at every VEI 5 or 6 volcanic eruption in the 20th century. …….
