Lots of enviroments. I remember reading once (I think it was on here but I don’t remember exactly) that there is known vigorous ash eruptions around the lake kivu area dating to about 11,000 years ago that probably represent nyamuragira breaching the surface of what was then a big lake, and if this is true then it has erupted 500 km3 in only about 10,000 years. Sprays in the oceans brings it up to the air, where it survives long enough to penetrate the stratosphere. If you google any diet on the internet, there are often many different versions available. If lake albert and lake kivu were one lake before nyamuragira formed, then the volume of material needed to fill that part of the basin where nyamuragira is now is probably over 1000 km3, and although it wasn’t all volcanic and the age of the filling is unknown, at the rate things are going now it might have taken less than 30,000 years. A colorless gas with a sharp, pungent smell, sulfur dioxide irritates the organs of the respiratory tract, including the nose and throat, causing wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath. and there must be associated stress on the crust as a result. They have well researched articles. Already though nyamuragira dwarfs all the other virunga volcanoes, it appears to be almost a landlocked analogue of kilauea and probably its entire surface is less than a few thousand years old, still in its rapid growth stage. Actual Landfall was more or less centered on Mobile Alabama. Res. No Laki did not affect global weather. Downwind from the lava channel, the vegetation has lost all it leaves. Nyamuragira apparently has a volume of 500 km3 measured as its cone. A single exposure to a high concentration can cause a long-lasting condition like asthma. Thanks for the article , Albert that photo of the flood basalt of the Columbia River type is on the lower end of Grande Ronde that and the Imnaha drainage contain the oldest of the flood basalt. southeasterly upper-level flow and increased surface convergence due 92L (potentially Helena) is the one I’m worried about. Published 2007 Nov 6. doi:10.1186/1743-7075-4-24. . Sulfur dioxide irritates the skin and mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. After a quiescence of less than a half century, the post-collapse cone of Anak Krakatau (Child of Krakatau) was constructed within the 1883 caldera at a point between the former cones of Danan and Perbuwatan. Volcanoes show up everywhere.) In this article, learn about sulfur burps, which are when the gas produced out of the mouth smells of rotten eggs. But over time, if they remain in the atmosphere they become sulfates, SO4 which forms areosols, very small solid particles. My struggles were nothing in comparison with these workers who struggle daily to make this hazardous journey – breathing toxic fumes – to … The recall to Gulf Power to turn my circuit back up after repairs was timely as well. We are just catching the first of what will probably be a lot of thunderstorms. Also, you do realise there is a reply option? This post grew out of an attempt to answer that question. Actually, may have been Trinidad scorpions, but by that time, who cares. Halfway between active Earth and dead Luna. During the Bardarbunga eruptions, sulfur smells were noted in Ireland. The surface gravity will be 1.2g, and the mantle will cool 20% slower. 239.330.9650 custserv@timilon.com 0 Items I found a reference to it in this article (https://judithcurry.com/2011/09/26/relationship-of-lower-tropospheric-cloud-cover-and-cosmic-rays/): And even if not in themselves causing mass extinctions, in combination with other effects (such as a major meteor strike) they do. Tons of ash and vaporized salt water exploded upwards into the air, forming a plume perhaps thirty miles high. Although not infallible, our noses give us a powerful stimulus to stay away from it. I got the idea of the Virunga area being a potential flood basalt from an article on volcanohotspot.wordpress.com, which I think is run by former users of volcanocafe. The “tree people” not killed by the frying pans and turkeys became the monkeys. Mars is between Earth and the Moon in size Start Date: 2015 Jul 31 The balance changes as the magma evolves. From https://volcano.si.axismaps.io (the link shows a nice movie). For any Gurgle Urt explorers lurking around… if you set your historical imagery setting to Dec 2004 and look around Pensacola, every blue tarp you see on a building is a damaged roof. Thing took a slice and is headed here. A common sulfate mineral is gypsum, used for alabaster, plaster, and chalk. When they started the Pilots wouldn’t fly in winds higher than oh35ktG65kt So they contracted an outfit from Anchorage.. The crust in the middle stretches and thins, and melt forms because of the lowering pressure. In addition, the effects of breathing diesel exhaust fumes have been shown to exacerbate underlying health complications, including emphysema, asthma or allergies. Greenland ice records show a massive SO4 surge over an almost 6 year period from 529 to 536. The info says a volume of about 80 km3 total but given the flows are apparently confirmed to have had massive eruption rate, are as big as all the islands together in surface area as well as erupted in the deep sea I think there might be some underestimating on the volume. I will have to look it up. Per this run, it might make cat 1 by landfall, but it’s gonna be close. Dust suspended in air is readily ignited by fumes or static electricity and can cause destructive fires. The geological thermostat is stronger. The numbers reduce if much of the SO2 is lofted into the upper atmosphere.). http://www.lightningmaps.org/#y=29.4528;x=-86.9746;z=9;t=3;m=oss;r=0;s=0;o=0;b=5.80;n=0;d=2;dl=2;dc=0;ts=0;tr=1; I’m just guessing here, but I think one of the reasons they don’t come here is that if they are down at the beach, and things go bad, they aren’t getting off the barrier island. -many plates, rifts, ranges and volcanoes; possibly so hot inside that its plates are more elastic than Earth’s. Great post. Nothing other than the sandwich was in the compartment. Fishing along the coastal areas will stay messed up for a while. Hope some of you find it interesting! To strengthen the case for Laki, you would need to show that the same effects were seen after Eldgja. I imagines tectonic caos. The KT event was mainly terrestrial but did not leave the sea untouched. Ouch. Symptoms may include coughing, shortness of breath, difficult breathing and tightness in the chest. Eventually it is just a deep lake, as what happened at holuhraun and kilauea. Verhagen AP, Bierma-Zeinstra SM, Cardoso JR, et al. I’m glad it’s poorly organized. Now we have wall to wall “experts” hopping around on TV screaming for attention about Gordon… and that I should buy a matress. She works as a features writer with Kitabu Publishers and has contributed news articles to various magazines and newspapers including "Weekly Citizen" and the "Kenyan Times." At the time of the above photo of the bus stop, we were at the 3.8″ total accumulated precipitation according to the Nexrad radar. I think though that the most likely location is in Antarctica. But it is either this or a plume, not both. Still, it is very minor compared to the human production, bad for Hawaii but insignificant further afield. What’s interesting about this minimum is that it’s happening early and may already be ending. Maybe there is already a massive magma body under this area and it is on the verge of erupting, or maybe eruptions that big have happened before but have been contained within the rift and buried by younger lava from nyamuragira. and drifted WSW. No large continents or cratons there. In he bible, sulfur was known as brimstone, found around the Dead Sea where it too comes up from the deep. Oman, L., A. Robock, G. L. Stenchikov, T. Thordarson, D. Koch, D. T. Shindell, and C. Gao (2006a), Modeling the distribution of the volcanic aerosol cloud from the 1783–1784 Laki eruption, J. Geophys. The impact hit a shallow sea rich in carbonate minerals (the Gulf of Mexico) the vaporization of which liberated a shit-ton of CO2, which added to the copious CO2 from the Deccan Traps. I’m assuming by aquatic dinosaurs you mean plesiosaurs or mosasaurs. I remember reading something about the unusual lava nyiragongo erupts being a sign of possible flood basalt activity there in the near future (geological future). The atmosphere is always plenty of co2 that allows photosyntesis to thrive. Of course changes in climate zones means that some locations have become drier. Normal track would take it there… I still think they are getting their hopes up. The word stands for ‘volcanic smog’ and refers to the mist of sulfur particles that hangs around, reduces visibility and irritates the throat. If earth was larger we would have more internal heating..More heat from compression as the planet formed, and more radioactive elements trapped deeper. “Similar to Venus but cooler” I read it in a news synopsis of an Australian, I think, paper and it was a couple of years ago. The flood basalts spanned over 5000 kilometers covering an arera almost the size of 11 million km2 in lava. These eruptions are on souch a wast scale its hard to Imagine. They come from carbonyl-sulfide (COS), which is present in the oceans. When it reacts with oxygen, sulfur forms sulfur oxide. The impact has been clear. It could be that there are very large deep magma reservoirs under nyamuragira that will one day feed much bigger flows in the rift. It is both essential to life (three amino acids contain sulfur) and deadly to it (it is potent antibiotic and insecticide). Most people can smell sulfur dioxide at levels of 0.3 to 1 ppm. It is handled and transported as a liquefied compressed gas. Can cause severe irritation of the nose and throat. That means it would happen 5 times per century anyway. Lung cancer; Increased risk of cardiovascular disease; Increased risk of cardiopulmonary disease With regards to LIP’s, Flood Basalts, etc, I would have to imagine it’s only a matter of time until we get another wave of flood basalts coming from the great African rift system. However, that does not mean a lack of volcanic activity: the surface shows a lot of volcanic features. Although sulfur dioxide does not burn in air, cylinders of compressed liquid can explode in the heat of a fire. The region is discussed in https://www.volcanocafe.org/lake-tanganyika-a-celebration-of-water-fish-and-distant-volcanoes/ The volcanoes have altered the drainage of the lakes considerably, and quite recently. Had the asteroid missed there could be some birds with teeth and mosasaurs/ plesiosaurs instead of whales (big marine animals actually seem to do well during these events surprisingly) but not a modern day Jurassic. They are basaltic, and cover huge areas under kilometers thick layers. [T]he fruits did not ripen and the wine tasted like sour grapes.” The ash from the explosion was spreading across the sky, blocking the sun’s heat. This effect may have contributed to the East Coast snowpocalypse in 2010. Frequent sulfur burps may be the sign of something more serious. Mars seems to have or have had one major plume. Laki ranks a close second: it produced some 50 Tg. Lett., 33, L18711, doi:10.1029/2006GL027665. Seen more impressive Sou’Westers on the Oregon coast… The last spike is much smaller and more similar to SO4 deposit from Katami. Whether the particles contain sulfur test. Burning of the nose and throat, breathing difficulties, and severe airway obstructions occurred in miners who breathed sulfur dioxide released as a result of an explosion in a copper mine." Flood basalts are deadly at large distance. Lake kivu has a depth of 400 meters, and about the same width as nyamuragira (~40 km). (The word ‘tera’ may well come for Thera, the big eruption which devastated the pre-Greek Mediterranean. Hopefully the tracks can still improve and stay out at sea. This is a view the tops of the storms over Mobile and Mississippi area. Today mars litosphere is extremely thick and inmobile tectonics are Impossible. Lurk, I’m glad your power is back on and your frozen foods are safe. Mosasaurs were converging very closely to ichthyosaurs by the end of the Cretaceous (just look at Mosasaurus next to Temnodontosaurus, convergent evolution at its finest) so I think there would be a decent chance of them surviving in some way through the Deccan traps, same for plesiosaurs (which were not declining at the end despite most sources). (brain dead surfers). This makes for a very thin case! I think that counts as a flood basalt, even if it hasn’t had 1000 km3 scale lava flows. Just to give you an example, Camille developed from an ex Cape Verde wave just south of Cuba. 2007;4:24. Copyright © 2021 Leaf Group Ltd., all rights reserved. Blue: earthquakes; orange: volcanoes; green: SO2. We had a question about how widespread the impact could be of the sulfur emissions of Kilauea. Inhalation of sulfur fumes causes irritation of the eyes, nose and respiratory track, which leads to headaches, dizziness and nausea 2. Did you see my comment on the situation around nyamuragira? The Bardarbunga eruption affected Iceland badly and raised SO2 levels even at times in Ireland. Laki was far, far, far too far north to affect anything in the southern hemisphere. It was basically olympus mons on earth…, It is kind of hard to imagine, especially as a lot of books/information are trying to bring a contradiction to this idea, but the popular perception of a flood basalt being like, non stop for a million years is actually not inaccurate for the Deccan traps at its peak (western ghats – 1.5 million km3 of lava in 30,000 years, K/Pg boundary included). Well above the tropopause and into the upper troposphere but nowhere near stratospheric. Again, it shows the main effects around the North Atlantic. White sands, New Mexico, a gypsum desert. It comprises a mixture of gases, including hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and more. Supercontinents tend to be hothouses. Tambora ejected some 60 Mt of SO2, and did so within 24 hours. flux known as Forbush Decrease events. Reminds me of a story-Columbia Bar Pilots are now flown out to ships via Helicopter. 100 million holuhrauns erupted in the blink of an eye geologicaly. In the second model, the eruption is much slower and lasted 10 years. Thank you. Sulfur is a chemical element that is nonmetallic 2. I expect to find a heat flow between Earth and Luna in strenght. Instead these events were called ‘dry fog’. Up there, photochemistry begins the conversion to sulfate. Long-term damage may result from a severe short-term exposure. So the news thinks they were comparable and that laki probably wasnt that bad, when in reality laki was about 150 times bigger than eyafjallajokull. Various animals use this to their advantage: it is the source of the repulsive smell of the skunk, and the socially disabling smell of garlic. More sulfur means more income. The latter analyses frequently focus on sudden high-magnitude reductions in the cosmic ray Therefore, a flood basalt is deadly within 500 km, and ecologically devastating over as much as 1000’s of kilometers, but at this rate it doesn’t wipe out the world. A super earth with these characteristics would most definitely be a very hostile place, the internal temperature of a super earth could probably approach 10,000 C or more, which would likely keep it all liquid and so such planets could have very powerful magnetic fields, amplified even more because bigger planets seem to spin faster. {Oxygen fugacity etc…} This is the result of that TiO2 vs FeO thing I have been messing with. cookie brand that we found out shehards them in a special place behind the couch give har one she has this Gollum-like “my prrresciousss!” look and dissappaears- the treat is eaten slowly at her leisure…. If distributed in the lower kilometer, this would give a lethal level as far away as 5000 km. Iceland also could do a really big flow in the next 200,000 years. In fact that eruption (one of the krafla fires) is way too small to be analogous…, looking into the future, remember the past, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”. The effects of cosmic rays are very much under study ATTM, but there is evidence that cosmic rays can affect weather through cloud seeding, lightning trigger, and changes aerosol concentrations. Concentrated Sulfuric acid also reacts with water and releases a lot of heat (this is a whole separate dangerous property aside from it being a strong acid). to land interaction will provide a brief window of opportunity for I take the cowards way out and just keep it all short. Submarine flood basalts do not cause major extinctions. . Therefore CO2 is mainly produced by non-erupting volcanoes, and comes up all over the place, perhaps far from the eventual exit point of the magma. . A major eruption can move material from the volcano to the stratosphere in 10 minutes. They have more reliable sources and a better search engine. They didn’t drink a drop of water because it was the month of Ramadhan – they were fasting. So yeah there are a few potential flood basalts active right now, one of them is a disaster waiting to happen regardless of the long term effects…, Think skaftar fires under a city of 5+ million, simultaneous with a limnic eruption, and then that methane getting set on fire by the lava… It is very hard to proof that the events in Japan and India are related. This fluid evaporates and provides the gas during the eruption. On a daily basis, that is 25 times more than Roza (assuming the slow model) but over a year, Roza outperformed Tambora 15-fold – and it continued for another 10 years. These lava flows are today eroded down and broken up by the formation of the Atlantic. According to a news article about 2,000 people evacuated. But, they are putting an area next to Hispaniola at 40% chance of development. (ethanol fuel will trash a small engine fuel system quite well) I noticed that not a lot of people were using local mass transit. Volcanic smog also contains highly acidic aerosols (tiny particles and droplets), mainly sulfuric acid and other sulfur-related compounds. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227193682_Sulfur_chlorine_and_fluorine_degassing_and_atmospheric_loading_by_the_1783-1784_AD_Laki_Skaftr_Fires_eruption_in_Iceland, The paper can be downloaded directly from the site, no need to sign up to anything (researchgate is much more friendly than the academica.eu site). Most things would probably overheat or get some sort of sickness from the air, 3 atmospheres is a lot, it is like being 30 meters underwater and you need training to avoid injury freediving to those depths. no end in sight. Out of this dough they made four men, Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now and Dark Jaguar.”. During solar minimum, all that shuts down and the water vapor just builds up and you huge deluge events wherever it gets concentrated. It’s gone through several replacement cycles but without getting it closed, it couldn’t establish a good flow structure. This was basically the beginning of the European Dark Ages. W. W. Norton & Company. Kidney damage can also occur with longer exposures. Really depends on how long it gets to loiter and get organized. This is a direct consequence of the global warming: warmer air can contain more moisture, and warmer oceans evaporate more. Might be a karma thing for S Florida. Flood basalts are the largest eruptions on Earth. SO2 does not dissolve well in water. (Not the coffee pot). Mafic magmas (basaltic, from the mantle) can accommodate a higher level of dissolved sulfur than felsic magma (silicate, from the crust). It is a sign of decay, as in rotten eggs, and it is actively damaging to our bodies. From http://www.mesonet.ttu.edu/cases/Ash_090408/Kasatochi.html. In theory, I should be sort of operable this evening. The leaves of some ashes very much sheltered in my garden suffered greatly . A brief review of the many conflicting studies that attempt to prove or disprove this hypothesis is also presented. It contains a figure much like the one provided here about the Roza flow, and the SO2 output. At solar max, both higher UV radiation and flares have a tendency to bust up water molecules or plain sweep them out of the atmosphere. This explosive activity isn’t phreatic either, a study I read about kilaueas 1790 eruption showed that no amount of in situ groundwater would have any effect on an eruption big enough to classify as a VEI 4. A planet with a thick atmosphere will also have a huge greenhouse effect, Venus would still be a hell planet if it was put where the Earth is now, you would need to put that super earth much further from the star to keep it just right. the larger and more massive a rocky planet is the higher gear the geologically activity They keep pushing the arrival time out several hours at a time. No solar influence required: the cause lies closer to home. Mega-continents suffer worse than our more-crinkly arrangement, suggesting coastal processes may mitigate the mayhem. A coal stove that isn't properly vented can be subject to backdrafts that can fill the house with toxic coal fumes. And looking back, the major flood basalt eruptions can have poisoned a significant part of the continent they occurred on. The CAMP basalts were probably quite fast too because an extinction happened and this was the first rift through Pangea. The atmosphere is unpredictable: on earth, that also has changed a lot over time. Ivan was our last one in 2004. Apparently Mobile Alabama gets this one. Normal magma chambers can easily reach that volume. Despite my gripping, Gulf Power did show up to address the issue in what I have to say was a timely manner. Key difference with Hawaii is the wind direction. Very discerning little dog..She has this dog Their impacts remain more localized. At ground level, humanity is worse (you do not want to live close to a coal burning power station), but higher up, volcanoes have a greater effect because their sulfur hangs around and travels further. Back in my days as an DC-7 Airtanker Co-pilot flying in that country being a Co-Pilot running the systems, mean you didin’t have to look out. The land around the volcano collapsed inward, forming a cauldron of rushing seawater thirty miles across. Though there is an undeveloped wave north of the Bahamas area that might affect the East coast in the near future. If I remember correctly, something similar happened in 1969. Fast Plate Tectonics. 92L, being a long track Cape Verde system is the spooky one in my opinion. “The summer of the year 1783 was an amazing and portentous one, and full of horrible phænomena; for besides the alarming meteors and tremendous thunder-storms that affrightened and distressed the different countries of this kingdom, the peculiar haze, or smokey fog, that prevailed for many weeks in this island, and in every part of Europe, and even beyond its limits, was a most extraordinary appearance, unlike anything known within the memory of man. Good paper, explains much about that system. There is also the relatively smaller but way more frequent large eruptions that kilauea will be doing in the next 200,000 years as its shield stage reaches a maximum value. This might also cause these planets to slowly wobble a lot and end up with weird tilt angles like Uranus. It is notable that submarine flood basalts did not cause mass extinctions: only those on land did. That is probably the main eruption but what I am talking about is the first few days when the eruption was not effusive. This is what I mean. Extraordinary weather events occurring the same time as the Laki eruptions in 1783-1784 were documented as far away as India, Japan and the Eastern US. Supercontinents acts like a blanket, trapping earths inner heat, the mantle cannot cool down and a superplume forms causing massive flood basalts and starts the slow process of forming a new ocean and later spreading ridge. The haze enveloping many Chinese cities also contains sulfate, and there it is believed a second reaction contributes, involving NH3: 2NH3(g) + SO2(g) + 2NO2(g) + 2H2O(aq)→2NH4+(aq)+SO42−(aq) + 2HONO(g). If the fumes from a heater are not removed by a chimney, the gases are released into the room. Mars and Venus have thicker crusts which insulate better, so their mantles stay warm and both have or have had major volcanic activity. Not Right Now? In high concentrations, exposure to sulfur can even result in burns on the skin. Big flood basalt provinces of 1 million km3+ in 1 million years or less happen tens of million years apart, but individual flood basalt-sized lava flows probably happen more often and in places that dont typically erupt that big and not repeatedly enough to make trap formations. If Deccan was caused by reunion, then imagine what would happen if hawaii or iceland got overrun by a continent… Both are around 10 times as powerful as reunion, as can be seen when you compare an average eruption on kilauea to an average eruption on piton de la fournaise. Again, I get to ride out the Eastern “eyewall.”… if you can call it that. 183-184). I’m not really seeing anything as a direct tropical threat to CONUS at this time. It seems plausible that although the SO2 emissions from flood basalt eruptions were very damaging, they were insufficient to cause worldwide extinctions. I imagines a dense humid atmosphere too and a distant yellowish looking dwarf sun. The Permian killer was heat, and therefore CO2 and methane. An overview of its emissions can be found at https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatories/hvo/hvo_volcano_watch.html?vwid=1379. Oman, L., A. Robock, G. L. Stenchikov, and T. Thordarson (2006b), High‐latitude eruptions cast shadow over the African monsoon and the flow of the Nile, Geophys. Sulfur in gaseous form combines with oxygen to form sulfur oxide 2. One of the only large things that survived the notorious P/T great dying event was Helicoprion, the famous ‘buzzsaw shark’ and biggest animal that ever existed up to that point in earths history. If you put your back to the wind, the responsible Low will be to your left, if a High is driving it, it’s to your right. A volcano manages to reach the stratosphere about once every other year. I think you are redefining ‘flood basalt’ here. As I told before.. Another thing, the opening stages of the flood basalts would have been stratospheric, skaftar fires was, and the km scale fountains and massive thermal effect of that much lava would be far bigger than any normal eruption. MOST of the contestants would die of respiratory failure. One of the houses out on Santa Rosa Island. Anecdotally, one version of the story states that the only survivor floated out of a 3rd window on a mattress that became lodged in a pine tree 12 miles inland. The description given here was written down in the 19th century, and does not clearly refer to 535 AD. Looking South-West from the parking lot of a local grocer. A hotter interior and more molten core also creates a stronger magnetic shield that protects the atmosphere. Super Earth exoplanets maybe displays hyperactive tectonics and a faster mineral cycle The Villarrica Volcano is seen at night from Pucon, Chile, Sept. 2, 2018. It shows how variable the emissions are, and how closely tied to the eruptions. It is notable that they formed around 500,000-100,000 years ago, when Hawai’i was getting big and probably related to the same cause of why kilauea and mauna loa are much bigger than the other volcanoes before them. Laki affected climate around the North Atlantic only. COROT-7 b. Got on the conversation of peppers and had him try a wee, small, bit of the reaper. Before a sealed compartment can be entered, it has to be checked by a Gas Free Engineer to ensure that the air is safe. https://www.facebook.com/extremeexposurefineartgallery/photos/pcb.1941127855956518/1941099292626041/?type=3&theater, I woud enjoy to see Deccan In action Sulfur is, however, a hazardous element that should be handled with care 2. To get a mantle plume, you need a temperature gradient: hot at the bottom, cold at the top. Not just with the ill or infirmed, but predominantly in the field workers… ordinarily healthy people. I’ve camped there whitewater rafting. That area should be very capable of a flood basalt in the future, it is possible that nyamuragira is less than 30,000 years old in its entirety, with lake kivu being twice as big before then. The very largest continental flood basalts occurs when Supercontinents starts to rift apart. Thanks Albert! This pulls the continent, and if you have subduction zones on both sides, it could pull the continent apart. Similarly low levels were observed after the Mount Katmai, Alaska, eruption in 1912, when the Niger River was also at a record low. It seems that the sulfur comes from a different part of the magma chamber, and therefore does not scale linearly with eruption magnitude. There is this research that evaluates the Nile / Laki connection and also compares it to the Eldgja period. Human (anthropogenic) emissions occur near the surface, where our chimneys and exhausts are. They smell. I started balding at 23-just like my Granpa on my Mother’s side. That leaves little time for decent chemistry. For more in… “The sun became dark and its darkness lasted for one and a half years… Each day it shone for about four hours and still this light was only a feeble shadow… the fruits did not ripen and the wine tasted like sour grapes.” Michael the Syrian, about a 6th century eruption. I guess I’m off to get a sack of potatoes. https://www.research.ed.ac.uk/portal/files/11783768/Atmospheric.pdf. The Deccan Traps and Chicxulub impact were an evil, evil combination. Because of the hotter mantle, the temperature gradient in the crust must be higher. 95% confidence is not normally sufficient to prove an effect, by the way. At concentrations of 10 ppm (10,000 times the level that our noses can detect), death can happen within hours. Funny thing, if he had stuck around, later in that same storm an air conditioning unit was blown off the civic center and splatted a car in that parking lot. We are already pushing the climate into danger areas. But it is complex. Where statistics can go off the rails and yield nonsensical answers of breath difficult!
