single eruption the size of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption spews more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than everything humankind does combined in a decade Since you don't understand climate or volcanoes I`ll help. Volcanoes also release sulfur oxides into the atmosphere which reflect solar rays and obscure the relationship between greenhouse gases to climate change. Thus volcanic eruptions are rarely correlated to warming, but that doesn`t mean that they don`t contribute. Comparing human emissions to volcanic eruptions is disingenuous, at best.
