5 Jul 07 - Google "Year Without Summer." From April 5 to 15 of the year 1815, Mount Tambora on the island of Sumbawa in the Dutch East Indies (modern-day Indonesia) blew up, ejecting 40 cubic kilometers of volcanic ash (more than twice as much as the 1883 explosion of Krakatoa) into the upper atmosphere.
Other volcanoes – La Soufrière on Saint Vincent in the Caribbean in 1812 and Mayon in the Philippines in 1814 –had already built up a substantial amount of atmospheric dust.
That stuff stayed up there, in the jet stream, for more than a year. Sunlight got reflected off that orbiting cloud of crap, and had trouble getting through. The "Year Without a Summer," known colloquially as "Eighteen hundred and froze to death," was 1816, in which severe summer climate abnormalities destroyed crops in Northern Europe, the American Northeast, eastern Canada and even China.
In May, frost killed off most of the crops that had been planted. In June, two large snowstorms in eastern Canada and New England resulted in many human deaths. In July and August, lake and river ice were observed as far south as Pennsylvania.
In Europe, food riots broke out and grain warehouses were looted. A recent BBC documentary tallied up 200,000 deaths.
Clearly, if anyone believes the earth is warming catastrophically and that we need to do something, the only PROVEN solution is to start throwing as much crap into the atmosphere as we possibly can, right now.
Clean nuclear and natural-gas-fired power plants must be shut down and immediately replaced with coal plants burning the softest, dirtiest coal – even peat – that can be found. "Smog inspections" will take on a new meaning as our cars will be checked regularly to make sure each is pouring up the densest cloud of black smoke and carbon particulates possible.
