Yet Another Source Reporting On CO2 Reduction of the Iceland Volcano

Volcanoes are pointed to by global warming skeptics as a much larger source of CO2 emissions than humans.  As the graphic in an earlier post pointed out, that is not the case with the Iceland Volcano.  Here is another report on the emissions of the volcano which support that graphic.  One point I should make, however, is that the earlier graphic didn’t take into account the CO2 emissions from alternate modes of transportation people in Europe are seeking, so the actual amount of CO2 reduction from the lack of air travel is probably overstated.  What it and this report do show, is that man-made emissions are far greater than the volcano itself.  It just isn’t good science to say that volcanoes dwarf human CO2 emissions.
