Manfredo Capriolo was interviewed on the End Triassic crisis

A recent study published in Global and Planetary Change and carried out by an international research group, led by Manfredo Capriolo, investigated the impact on the climate produced by the exceptional volcanic phase of the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) during the end-Triassic. It shows how the amount of CO2 emitted from a single pulse of the first CAMP phase is similar to that of anthropogenic origin from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. See interview on YouTube.

Anthropogenic emissions are similar to those related to volcanism of the CAMP, a new study shows.
