Eruption of #Tonga volcano likely not large enough to impact global #climate

At the height above the #JetStream in a layer known as the #stratosphere, #aerosols can remain for years. Importantly, when #SO2 reaches the stratosphere, it reacts with water and creates a hazy layer of gas that prevents sunlight from reaching the Earth's surface and can lead to cooler temperatures.
The SO2 mass from the eruption was 400 million kg which is to less for cooling.

Apparently some companies in the UK are trying to market today as the most depressing day of the year. Meanwhile, today was the first day this year all of Finland had a sunrise. Take that for depressing!

Finally got to yt-dlp over #youtubedl today and have to say this: the #FreeSoftware community never will cease to amaze me.

Applause for everyone involved!
