Indonesia’s Sinabung Volcano Explodes to 40,000 feet (12.2 km) – See videos

Ash propelled that high (into the stratosphere) could cool the planet.

If above-water volcanic activity is increasing, is underwater volcanic activity also increasing? If so, that would heat the oceans. The warmer waters would lead to more evaporation and therefore more moisture rising into the skies.

More moisture rising into the skies- skies cooled by the above-ground eruptions – leads to more snow, and there you have it, instantaneous ice age.

Warmer oceans and colder skies – a recipe for disaster.


Sumatra’s incredibly active Sinabung Volcano exploded in spectacular fashion to 40,000 feet (12.2 km) again yesterday, March 2, sending volcanic ash high into the atmosphere and depositing ash on nearby villages.

Activity at the volcano in North Sumatra province increased over the past week, with authorities recording 13 times when it released ash clouds.

Dramatic video from the Volcanological Survey of Indonesia shows the plume of ash reaching high into the sky.

Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 feet (10 km) –and into the stratosphere– have a direct cooling effect on the planet.

According to, Sinabung woke in 2010 after centuries of quiescence. However, that 2010 phase turned out to be a mere precursor to the long and powerful episode which began on Sept 5, 2013 and ran until Jul 15, 2018 which qualified as a VEI 4.

The 2,600-metre (8,530-foot) Sinabung had been inactive for four centuries before the 2010 eruptedion, killing two people. Another eruption in 2014 killed 17 people, while seven died in a 2016 eruption.

A year later Mount Sinabung fired back into life, in May, 2019.

This latest eruption (beginning on March 2) ranks as one of the largest in years, rivaling the 55,000 footer of June 9, 2020.

Northern Sumatra is part of Indonesia, which consists of 17,500 islands and is prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes because of its location within the so-called “Ring of Fire” — a series of fault lines stretching from the Western Hemisphere through Japan and Southeast Asia.

  1. Mother Nature is a real bitch eh? She waits until the NWO launch their great reset and then launches her own greater reset.

    Go Mom, go!

  2. Could this mean robert that california winters could become much wetter and colder in the coming years and decades and the drought scares from the states climate scientists will finally go quiet

  3. For the last couple of years, Sinabung has been growing an ever increasing lava dome.
    I’d suggest that the dome had become so large it had blocked the crater – ergo, a throat clearing eruption.

    The risk from Sinabung in the future is the very large magma chamber underneath draining out, then a collapse eruption into the chamber to form a caldera. If this happens then a very large eruption will occur.
    The Indonesian Volcanic institute is very worried about this real possibility.

    Sinabung volcano (Sumatra, Indonesia): series of massive hot avalanches generate huge ash plumes rising 5 km into the sky

    Same sources an hour later down rates height by half to match the MSM and GDACS (UN) [same psyop] numbers.

    MSM sources [including VolcanoDiscovery and GDACS (UN) report the Sinabug eruption height to be less than half the original obs 12km height to be now only 5km… but many report that 40,000 lose power to possibly provide cover/diversion for the [initial/actual/false?] 40,000 number? It’s an infowar, what’s a little +/- 7.2km rounding error anyway.
    search: sinabung 2021 5km (MSM)

    This latest tech report has more credibility:

  5. the top section seemed to start it but…the side seemed to flow down and the largest debris really looked to be coming from nearer the base?
    illusion or i wonder did the side split open?

    • The big lava dome on the top was pushed out down the slope by upward pressure from the lower chamber.
      As the dome disintegrated sliding down the slope huge pyroclastic clouds rose upwards from this
      That,s what you are seeing.

      Now that the crater throat has been cleared of the large dome, the volcano will probably go quiet for a while – until the next dome builds up.

      Or, the lower magma chamber level drops and the edifice collapses into the empty chamber.

  6. So 1 little volcano might cool the planet? Is this the same planet that [according to Ray Kraft (on this page)] has been COOLING for the last 8,000 years? I guess every little volcano helps. Nice video – thanks.

  7. Don’t forget the Albedo effect of water vapour either Robert. A double strike extra Albedo from the ash and of course the higher concentration of clouds you mention.
