Humans Dwarf Volcanoes for CO2 Emissions is an excellent article on one of SkS's favorite topics.

The gist of the article, written by Jessica Marshall and posted (June 27) on Discovery News is:

  • Human activities emit roughly 135 times as much climate-warming carbon dioxide as volcanoes each year.
  • Volcanoes emit less than cars and trucks, and less, even, than cement production.
  • Climate change skeptics have claimed the opposite

In my opinion, this article would make an excellent cross-post on SkS.

In addition, references/links to this article should be woven into exisiting SkS articles and rebuttals.

a recent paper published by Terrence Gerlach, a retired volcanologist, formerly with the Cascades Volcano Observatory, part of the US Geological Survey in Vancouver, Washington,

Gerlach's paper was published in EOS. In his paper, Gerlach compiled the available estimates of CO2 emissions from all global volcanic activity on land and undersea and compared them with estimates for human emissions.

Does anyone have access to Gerlach's paper?
