Journalists just read from the cue cards. There are no investigative journalists anymore.  ABSOLUTELY nothing in the universe can be reduced to a single cause and effect. They do not even bother to check the facts they spout out all the time. Three underwater volcanoes have erupted just off the coast of Sicily. That just so happens to warm the water.

Hunga Tonga Undersea volcanic eruption

On January 15th of, 2022, the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai undersea volcano erupted. It ejected so much water into Earth’s stratosphere that even NASA published a study in the “Geophysical Research Letters.” 

The sheer amount of water vapor hurled into the atmosphere has been acknowledged, and it could temporarily warm Earth’s surface. An above ground volcanoes shoot ash into the atmosphere, producing the opposite effect that we call volcanic winter, for the ash blocks out the sun. Water vapor, some argue, can magnify the sun.

The underwater volcanoes also obviously warm the water. The United States ranks third, behind Indonesia and Japan, in the number of historically active volcanoes. We do not have a handle on all the volcanoes that may be erupting and warming the oceans. As Science magazine reported:

“It’s just mind boggling.” More than 19,000 undersea volcanoes discovered
