Lost in all the hysterical proclamations of “historic” summer heat waves and “hottest day ever” proclamations this summer is a theory that H2O, not CO2 and other trace atmospheric gases, may be driving hotter-than-normal temperatures. Both NASA and the European Space Agency seemingly endorse the notion that a gigantic undersea volcano that erupted from December 2021 until mid-January 2022 may have spurred a dramatic increase in water vapor — the Earth’s main greenhouse gas — contributing to higher air temperatures this year.
When the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted, it reportedly spewed a stupendous amount of H2O as water vapor into the atmosphere, enough, it is said, to have filled no less than 58,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.
“The violent Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai eruption on 15 January 2022 not only injected ash into the stratosphere but also large amounts of water vapor, breaking all records for direct injection of water vapor, by a volcano or otherwise, in the satellite era,” a study published in Geophysical Research Letters reported.
