1816 is known as “the year without
summer". It is an example of climate
change due to the eruption of Mount
Tamboa in Indonesia which began on
April 1815. It is regarded as the most
destructive volcanic event in history.
It caused the death of almost 10,000
inhabitants on the island of Sumbawa
and a global drop in temperature
around the world which lasted about
three years. Most of the world’s
population lived on subsistence
agriculture and without regular
harvests they suffered from hunger.
Famine, poverty and migrations
spread everywhere.

Do you know what a Fallstreak is? It’s
also called “hole punch cloud” and it
forms in mid-level clouds. These clouds
are usually composed by small water
droplets which are on the point to
freeze, but to do that they need ice
crystals. If a plane passes through
them, it brings these ice crystals which
help water droplets quickly freeze and
start to fall. So, a hole is left behind,
and it expands when neighboring
droplets start freezing.
