Willis provides direct observational evidenced that large volcano eruptions do not affect temperature in Hawaii despite the fact the decrease in solar energy there is obvious.

We live on a water planet. Seems obvious to me.

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

I see that Susan Solomon and her climate police have rounded up the usual suspects, which in this case are volcanic eruptions, in their desperation to explain the so-called “pause” in global warming that’s stretching towards two decades now. Their problem is that for a long while the climate alarmists have been shouting about about TWO DEGREES! PREPARE FOR TWO DEGREES OF DOOM BY 2100!! But to warm two degrees by 2100, you have to warm at 0.2°C per decade, or around 0.4°C during “the pause” … so they are now left trying to explain a missing warming that’s two-thirds of the 20th century warming of 0.6°C.
