The largest eruption of a tropical volcano during the past millennium occurred in AD 1258–1259. Its estimated radiative forcing was several times larger than the 1991 Pinatubo eruption1. Radiative forcing of that magnitude is expected to result in a climate cooling of about 2 C (refs 2–5). This effect, however, is largely absent from tree-ring reconstructions of temperature6–8, and is muted in reconstructions that employ a mix of tree-rings and other proxy data9,10. This discrepancy has called… CONTINUE READING
