  • Greenhouse gas emissions directly from the movement of volcanic rocks can create massive global warming effects — more than previously believed — according to a study which may lead to changes in the way scientists estimate climate change .
  • The study, published in the journal Nature Communications, noted that changes in the planet’s geology caused the largest temporary global warming of the past 65 million years.
  • The simulations by the researchers predicted that the volcanic rocks part of the NAIP could have initiated PETM climate change.
