Can human activity cause a volcano to erupt?

    There is a theory that as global warming melts glaciers, it will decrease the pressure on top of volcanoes, allowing the magma to flow more freely and agitate the already in flux mountains, turning them into proper volcanoes, even if they were dormant before.

    I hope this helped!

    Volcano explosions are mainly caused by gas contained in magma. Being less solid than the surrounding rock, magma tends to reach the surface of the volcano’s base, and the pressure of gas makes it explode. Human activities have important effects on what happens on Earth, but much less on geological activities that happens under its surface; there are no proofs that man can influcence natural volcano’s activities.
