Role of Intense Heat From Volcanoes Needs Consideration in Climate Change/Global Warming

I'm starting to call these things “heat polluters” when it comes to climate change. They certainly contaminate the temperature record. I don't think scientists consider the heat they produce in the historical temperature record and in climate models. While it's good to consider the pollution effects of ash plumes, etc., the effect of the heat … Continue reading Role of Intense Heat From Volcanoes Needs Consideration in Climate Change/Global Warming
