Joe (Biden) vs. the Volcanoe

Mike W. sends this our way:

From the article:

"Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption at Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano, since its first spewed volcanic ash, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you. And now with Iceland's Grimsvotn volcano erupting on May 21, 2011, it has been a losing battle.

Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it's that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know, it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of: driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cents light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs ... well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days."

End excerpt.

Unfortunately the author goes on to say that volcanic ASH reduced the carbon-saving efforts, which is a mistake because ash thrown into the atmosphere acts to increase planetary albedo, cooling the Earth - unless it's black carbon and ends up sitting on top of glaciers and ice flows, absorbing heat. Volcanoes generally cause cooling; 1816 is often called The Year without a Summer because of the eruption of Mt. Tambora (in 1815). It was described as a persistant "dry fog" with snow falling in June in places like Albany New York. River and lake ice were visible in July and August as far south as Pennsylvania. By 1817 New York City saw a winter temperature of -26* F.

Of course the Dalton Minimum was in full swing at this time as well.

Ron De Haan warns about this:

"David Archibald, a scientist from Australia discovered a relationship between the length of a solar cycle and global temperature.

Every year a solar cycle goes beyond the average 11.5 years cycle, global temperatures will drop by 0.7 degrees.

Recent findings and analysis have found that solar cycle 24 might last eighteen years. An eighteen year long Solar Cycle 24 would be very significant in that it would be five and a half years longer than Solar Cycle 23. With the solar cycle length/temperature relationship for the US-Canadian border being 0.7 degree Celsius for each year of solar cycle length, a further cooling of 3.8 degree Celsius is in the train for the next decade.

If we would experience a Pinatubu like volcanic eruption at this time this will trigger a global crop loss like we experienced in 1816 in the aftermath of the Tamborra eruption.

Mass starvation due to wide spread famine, riots and even war will occur. With a Pinatubu size eruption statistically happening every 46 years the odds that this could happen are 50-50. "

End excerpt.

How much would anyone care to wager that should such a thing happen the Gang Green, those Enviro-Nazis, would blame such an event on Global Warming and perhaps fracking for oil and gas? How much could this "good crisis" not be allowed to go to waste? Many people would follow along if a crop failure should occur.
