If what’s currently going on is global warming, volcanic eruptions act to reverse or offset those effects in a cooling mechanism. Sulfur dioxide from erupting volcanoes converts into sulfate particles in the stratosphere, which reflect the sun’s energy and prevents it from heating the Earth.
In 1816 there was what has come to be known as “the Year without a summer” in which there were freezing temperatures in much of the temperate countries every month of the year. Scientists think that this was cause, in part, by the the eruption of Mt Tambora. which was the largest known eruption in over 1,600 years.
