AGW Increases Volcanic Eruptions And Slavery, Plus Bad Indians

Sigh (via Tom Nelson)

A thaw of Iceland’s ice caps in coming decades caused by climate change may trigger more volcanic eruptions by removing a vast weight and freeing magma from deep below ground, scientists said on Friday.

She and Sigmundsson wrote a 2008 paper in the scientific journal Geophysical Research Letters about possible links between global warming and Icelandic volcanoes.

Anthony Watts has more on the subject. Moving on to slavery

As climate change intensifies, the impact for families to find food, brings desperate measures. Families are now seeking any solution to survive. The selling of daughters into slave markets is, one of the solutions, causing young women , girls to be swept away by what many guess are modern slave traders.

How about those bad Indians?

Early Na­tive Amer­i­cans caused more car­bon di­ox­ide emis­sions than pre­vi­ously thought—and they thus con­tri­but­ed to glob­al warm­ing even be­fore the in­dus­t­ri­al era be­gan, a new study sug­gests.

Somehow, I don’t think they cared about it, as they had other things on their minds

The in­dig­e­nous peo­ples burned trees as part of for­est-manage­ment strat­e­gies that ul­ti­ma­tely led wood­lands to yield more of the nuts and fruit that the peo­ples ate in abun­dance, ac­cord­ing to sci­en­tists. The re­sult: emis­sions of car­bon di­ox­ide, one of the key heat-trapping gas­es blamed by clim­at­ol­ogists for glob­al warm­ing.

Ah. Food. Raising the standards of living. Check. All those things liberal climate alarmists want to significantly reduce in modern society.

In­i­tial­ly, Spring­er and col­la­bo­ra­tors from Uni­vers­ity of Tex­as at Ar­ling­ton and Uni­vers­ity of Min­ne­so­ta were stu­dying his­tor­ic drought cy­cles in North Amer­i­ca us­ing iso­topes, or vari­ants, of car­bon in stal­ag­mites. To their sur­prise, they said, the car­bon rec­ord con­tained ev­i­dence of a ma­jor change in the lo­cal ec­o­sys­tem be­gin­ning at 100 B.C. This in­trigued the team be­cause an ar­che­o­logical dig in a near­by cave had yielded ev­i­dence of a Na­tive Amer­i­can com­mun­ity there 2,000 years ago.

That’s interesting, since a. we have had multiple warming and cooling periods over the last 2,000 years, and b. the Earth had been in the same situation over the last 7,000 years, as the changes from the end of the last ice age slowed down into small oscillations. But, hey, it’s all about Blaming Mankind.

    Let’s see…

    Iceland hasn’t warmed up AT ALL since 1941. Yet the magma formed up anyway. And what of that island that formed up from a new volcanic vent 2-3 decades back? Did ice on the ocean floor melt?

    Slavery… well it is pretty Warm in most muslim nations, so that might explain why they’ve been selling slaves for 1400 years (right up the the present day). And the Roman Warm Period was warmer than today, so I can see why they had slaves… Did the Vikings have slaves during the MWP? Not sure about that one….. Anyway slavery has been around for 10,000 years, probably longer despite ‘lil johnnies’ obsessions with ‘6000 years,’ so does that mean the Dark Ages cooling and Little Ice Age cooling never happened? In which case, the world is Not getting warmer, ’cause it always has been……………..

    As to the Indians: I wish I had sad something months ago. It occured to me last winter that the AGW hystericysts would eventually try to push global warming back to the days when the Human race really began to multiply… and here it comes, just as expected!

    If ignorance truly is bliss, ‘lil johnnie must be Ecstatic.

    Thank God I’ve always been an avid reader! I couldn’t stand the idea of being ignorant, let alone as ignorant as ‘lil johnnie.

    He says Iceland’s volcanic carbon emissions are good news for plant growth and the current eruptions give an indication of the potential for carbon emissions from future volcanos.

    “We are living in a period of volcanic quiescence, as we haven’t had a dirty big eruption since 1912; and this is a small eruption but it is giving us the window into what a very big eruption would be like.”
