Albedo[edit]

When the earth's reflectivity increases, you are RAISING the albedo, not lowering it. --Bagshotrow (talk) 15:03, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Silly question[edit]

To ask a silly question: if it was too cold to snow, what did the winters after the volcanic winter but before 1888 bring?

"the next four years were unusually cold, and the winter of 1888 was the first time it was warm enough to snow; snowfalls that year broke all records worldwide."

too warm to snow....

Sources?[edit]

Practically all of this article - especially the first bit - is sourceless. Is it correct but sourceless, or wrong as well? William M. Connolley 15:38, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Sources: data in dispute[edit]

The first two sections are sourceless. Further, some of the stated 'facts' are in dispute. In particular, there is no evidence in Greenland ice cores for a prolonged period of dramatic (i.e., about 3 K) cooling. (See C. Oppenheimer(2002), Quaternary Science Reviews 21:14--15, pp. 1593--1609, who states the evidence from the ice cores gives about 1 K cooling.)

Per PBS-Nova the volcanic super eruption of 75,000 years ago was in East Africa, not Sumatra. Is this new information that should be included? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.85.227.15 (talk) 09:12, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
