Re: What's his angle?
"...One active volcano outputs more CO2 with one eruption than mankind has since the industrial revolution,,,"
Complete and utter denierblog garbage. Just laughable nonsense as any ten year old could tell you.
Humans emit 100 times more CO2 than all the Earth's volcanos - both surface and subsea - combined.
Volcanos = on averge 300 million tons per annum
Humans = 35 BILLION tons per annum.
This is a simple observable measurable fact that anyone can look up in seconds.
This 'volcanos meme' is usefull for showing up the jaw-dropping ignorance and gullibility of some of the more extreme denialist cult devotees. It is so completely obvious that it is total junk that it hardly even merits a serious reply.
It orginates in Ian Plimers laughable 'book' (like a lot of the deniermyths' but even he doesn't say that. He was refering to the Siberian Traps volcanic event - the largest known volcanic event of the last 500 million years of Earth's geological history.
They continued for a MILLION years and spanned the Permian–Triassic boundary, about 251 to 250 million years ago.
That the denia machine have somehow managed to twist this even into the 'volcanos meme' is bad enough but the fact that there are a few mind-meltingly ill-informed bozos out there who not only fall for this junk but make idiots of themselves by repeating it - well - it's just shaming to the whole country.
At least get yourself familar with the absolute basics because as it stands your ignorance is an embarrasment even to the denial industry.
