Activity picks up at Kamchatka volcanoes

Actually, there’s now activity at 27 different volcanoes, says volcanodiscovery.com.

Kizimen (Kamchatka): “An ash plume rising to 17,000 ft (5 km) altitude was reported on Dec 27 by VAAC. Webcam images show a significant steam plume which possibly contains ash. This suggests that the lava dome might be entering a new phase of growth.”

Karymsky (Kamchatka): “Strombolian to mild vulcanian explosions continue at the volcano. VAAC Tokyo reported an ash plume at 15,000 ft (4,5 km) altitude on Dec 27.”

Info on these, and the other 25 active volcanoes:

  1. Between the lack of solar activity and an increase in volcanoes, we should remember the year(s) without a summer in 1815-1816.

    Even Wickipedia (where warmists proliferate) acknowledges: “Evidence suggests that the anomaly was caused by a combination of a historic low in solar activity with a volcanic winter event, the latter caused by a succession of major volcanic eruptions capped by the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, in the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia), the largest known eruption in over 1,300 years.”

    Perhaps the AGW sacientists should all be required to read this and admit that the sun and volcanic activity DO have a major effect on climate – rather than the simplistic claims that CO2 controls everything.
