Aerosol in volcanic eruptions blocks solar radiations, decreases Global warming

Volcanic eruptions could be slowing global warming, and climate change here on Earth. Well, minor volcanic eruptions could be doing that. A recently-published study found that the frequent and small volcanic eruptions that are taking place on Earth might be benefiting Earth to some degree. The study conducted by scientists from MIT pointed out that while volcanic eruptions have long been known to cool the surface of the Earth – the protection the smaller eruptions are giving Earth benefit because they’re mitigating the increases in output of greenhouse gases here on Earth.

In other words, while humans on Earth might be putting out greater, and greater amounts of greenhouse gases – the small volcanic eruptions are preventing the greenhouse gases from making it to the top of our atmosphere, and doing damage to the crucial layers that prevent the sun from being filtered ...
