Volcano May Chill Global Temperatures

Monday March 06 by Claudia bournespace
While villagers living near Mayon volcano in the Philippines are feeling the force of brutal eruptions almost daily, the rest of the world could feel Mayon's impact through cooler global temperatures. Mayon has been blasting out rock, dust and boulders as big as houses for over a week and climate experts say if the dust makes it into the upper atmosphere, the stratosphere, it would form a veil over the Earth, preventing some of the sun's heat from reaching the Earth's surface and causing temperatures to drop.
