(ORDO NEWS) — In the near future, catastrophic volcanic eruptions may begin, which is considered a completely natural phenomenon. As a result, the climate of the entire planet can change very quickly. A similar statement was made by the famous volcanologist Ivan Kulakov.
The consequences of these eruptions will be felt in various corners of the Earth. They can cause climate change so dramatic that it starts to snow in summer. If we consider the degree of volcanic activity, then now mankind lives in a fairly peaceful time, when really large eruptions occur literally 1-2 times a century. It should be noted that there were no global eruptions either in this or in the last century. Due to such a long pause, the likelihood of a catastrophe increases markedly and an eruption can occur at any time.
The last violent eruption was recorded in Indonesia in 1883. Then the volcano Krakatau was active. Because of this, for a long time, the inhabitants of Europe watched very strange sunsets that were depicted in the paintings of that time.
If we compare the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull with Krakatoa, then in the first case, 0.1 cubic kilometers of magma was produced, and in the second 25. Even more terrible was the eruption of the Tambor volcano in 1815, when about 150 cubic kilometers of magmatic material were thrown out. This eruption was heard over 2500 kilometers, and the area with a diameter of 600 kilometers around the volcano was plunged into darkness due to a huge ash cloud.
Kulakov believes that this eruption caused a decrease in air temperature in Europe, as well as an increase in the intensity of rainfall. Because of this, famine, epidemics of terrible diseases and numerous unrest in different countries began.
To date, so far there are no signs that some kind of global eruption is planned, but you still need to be ready for anything, because a disaster can happen at any moment, because the break was too long.
