Anyone want to comment on these?
I haven't read much about these on this forum, if it has been talked about at all.
Especially the ones in and around the Pacific Ocean. And if they all could have blew after the continental
shift around the Pacific.
But most of the actively erupting volcanoes are on the deep sea floor, where nobody was there to measure it. If you assume that 3/4 of all eruptions were underwater volcanoes, you get a total of about 6,000 volcanoes that have erupted worldwide in the last 10,000 years.(Their not sure of this number as of yet.)
The planet would be pitched into complete dark, and that is going to devastate photosynthesis, destroy crop yields and cause temperatures to plunge. The ash would linger in the atmosphere for up to 10 years.
The two big hazards from a worldwide volcanic cataclysm are ash and volcanic gases. (While the explosions and outpourings of lava would be deadly to people living close by, the number of deaths would pale compared to those caused by the ensuing climate change.)
Just some thought as I have just found this article.
