Tambora volcano erupted in Indonesia, the deadliest volcanic eruption in human history

209 years ago today (April 10, 1815), recognized as the most deadly occurred along a volcanic eruption in human history - India Nitanbola volcanic eruption, volcanic eruption nearly 1,400 tons of rock, ash and debris, the radius Millions of square kilometers of land are completely covered, and the entire area is filled with hell as it appears, floating with ashes and poisonous gases.

The lava flows pouring down from the crater flowed into the sea after submerging a large area of ​​farmland at the foot of the mountain, provoking fog. The earthquake that accompanied the volcanic eruption caused the submarine crust to subside, causing a tsunami that engulfed the town of Tambora, which is located near the volcano. A total of nearly 100,000 people died in it!

In 1816 , there was no summer

Tambora emits 150-170 cubic kilometers of volcanic ash, energy may reach 800 million tons of TNT , volcanic ash column up to 45 kilometers ! Because of the chaos caused by the volcano, it is difficult for sunlight to cross the stratosphere to reach the ground in Indonesia and Asia. Even in summer, clothes can freeze on the clothesline. On a global scale, the temperature has plummeted by 0.53 degrees. The biting cold has swept the world. In 1816 , there was no summer in the world.

Tambora now

China, from bad to bad

In the history of the earth, the great disaster caused by volcanic eruptions is not uncommon. In the Cretaceous period, there was a saying that the global volcano erupted and the global ash had caused a sharp decline in the global climate. At this time, the earth’s overlord dinosaurs suffered a catastrophe and the whole nation did not. Today, we can only see their fossils in major museums and film and television records.

Similarly, the impact of the volcanic eruption of the Tambora is also a disaster for China.

1816 Dynasty, the Northern Hemisphere average temperature dropped by 0.4 - 0.7 degrees in the next decade, global temperature to 2 degrees continued to decline, China and the world ushered in the "Little Ice Age." Due to the harsh environment and lack of experience, the defensive measures were not timely, resulting in a sudden drop in the output of crops (especially cereals). As a result, China began to enter a recession that lasted for nearly half a century. Not only was the economy stagnant, but at the same time, a series of chained social effects such as peasant uprisings and consequent diseases caused by famine caused by crop failures began to take off. There is no return from prosperity.

The Ice Age of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the Decline of the Empire

Historians refer to this period as "the light of depression."


The eruption of a volcano led to an extremely cold weather for a half-century, resulting in an empire that turned bad.

No one knows when the next butterfly effect will occur. All we can do is to protect the environment we depend on for the moment. This is not related to national politics. It is related to all humanity.
