Sheveluch volcano propels ash more than 7 miles into the sky

A major eruption started at Russia’s Sheveluch volcano on June 14, 2017. propelling  ash to a height of 12 km (39 360 feet) above sea level.

KVERT warned that explosions up to 15 km (49 200 feet) could occur at any time. The Aviation Color Code was raised from Orange to Red.

Sheveluch volcano (also spelled Shiveluch) is one of Kamchatka’s largest and most active volcanoes.

  1. Entering the cooling half of the 65-70 year cooling cycle.
    Quiet Sun.
    Ash from volcanoes.
    Things might get a bit chilly.

    • I guess the big problem might be that if Tony Heller is right and the previous peak of the temperature cycle occurred in the early 20th century and the early 21st century did not match the high temperature extremes then the coning cycle may be worse than the late 60’s/70’s cooling period.

      If we slide into a cooling cycle from a lower base then it may be a return to a little ice age.

      Of course “scientists” will then discover that increasing concentrations of infra-red gases in the atmosphere allows for the 99% of non infra-red gases to lose “heat” more easily as it increases the atmosphere’s emissivity and then CO2 will be the cause of the cooling after all and hence an “anti” greenhouse effect will be the biggest threat to humanity !

      That is if you believe that 99% of the atmosphere – nitrogen and oxygen – defy physics and don’t radiate !

      • You can’t tax nitrogen and oxygen so therefore no, they don’t radiate IR radiation.

        (Is the ‘/sarc’ denotation even necessary?)

  2. Kamchatka has been going off non stop. If there were concerns of global warming, this in itself would counter it.

  3. i still remember the pain of chillblains on hands feet and ears in the late 60s and up to early 70s
    and i hope i dont have to go through that again now im aging arthritic and less able to bounce back ;-(

    small consolation that many others who wont be affording heating
    in the coming yrs will also be in the same situation.
