Particulate matter cause of warming?
It’s about time that someone brought an end to this “climate change” business. It’s not the carbon in the atmosphere that causes Earth to warm; it’s the lack of particulate matter. A little history for everyone: In 1883 when Krakatoa erupted Europe experienced two years without any real summer. And after Mt. St. Helens erupted, we had several bad winters.
It’s just like the great freon scare that had us belieeving the ozone layer was being destroyed. There were even people who came up with theories about how the heavier-than-air freon was rising and destroying the ozone. Then they discovered that, in fact, Earth’s wobble was causing the hole to expand and contract.
Of course, what started the global warming furor was the receding of that glacier in Greenland. In the process of receding, the glacier exposed where Vikings had once lived. History told us the Vikings packed up and left, which generated a whole different set of events.
The Democrats basically shut down coal, which eliminated more particulate matter, which had reflected sunlight, causing Earth to cool.
