Were you aware that one of the biggest natural explosions on Earth took place last year in the South Pacific, near the Island of Tonga? It’s a fact – an underwater volcano erupted with such force that it propelled massive amounts of water vapor into the atmosphere. And naturally, in their typical fashion, liberals are quietly attempting to exploit and manipulate the eruption to bolster their climate change hoax. Before delving into that, here’s what happened in Tonga:
On January 15, 2022, an underwater volcano erupted off the shores of the Pacific islands of Tonga—the most explosive event ever recorded on Earth.

This is incredible to see.
A new study says that this massive and historical eruption would could wreak havoc and even “warm” the planet.

The study explains how the explosion was so incredibly powerful that it sent water vapor into the stratosphere.
The January 2022 eruption of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai in the island nation of Tonga was so powerful that it may have caused the climate to warm temporarily, a study says.
Located in the southern Pacific Ocean, the underwater volcano exploded with a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 5 out of a logarithmic scale measuring up to 8.
It produced a sonic boom that could be heard as far north as Alaska and sent a tsunami that raced across the Pacific to Japan and North and South America, according to NOAA.
“It was an absolutely huge eruption,” said Sam Purkis, marine geosciences professor at the University of Miami, who was not part of the study. “It contends probably for the largest natural explosion on the planet for more than a century.”
According to Purkis, the impact of the eruption not only extended around the planet but also up through the atmosphere.
He said the submarine volcano erupted powerfully enough to send water vapor into the stratosphere, a layer in the atmosphere that begins about 7 miles above the Earth’s surface.
So, how are liberals twisting this recent natural disaster to fit their climate change narrative? Well, they’re doing so by not mentioning it, if that makes any sense. The left is largely trying to ignore the volcanic eruption as a possible cause for the unusual weather conditions experienced by many worldwide. Instead, they’re attributing all the “extreme” weather to the more traditional concept of “climate change.” Anything to keep the gravy train going, right?
While the left and radical weather forecasters try to scare the living daylights out of Americans by turning “summer heat” into a demonic force from the bowels of hell that’s about to swallow them whole, the actual cause of this increase in temperature is likely temporary, and caused by the explosion.
Conservative pundit Matt Walsh discussed this very topic on his podcast recently.
But don’t take our word for it. Take it straight from the horse’s mouth — NPR. This August 2022 article is the kind of article the liberal media was producing in droves last year before going strangely silent.
The violent eruption of Tonga’s Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano injected an unprecedented amount of water directly into the stratosphere — and the vapor will stay there for years, likely affecting the Earth’s climate patterns, NASA scientists say.
The massive amount of water vapor is roughly 10% of the normal amount of vapor found in the stratosphere, equaling more than 58,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.
“We’ve never seen anything like it,” said atmospheric scientist Luis Millán, who works at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Millán led a study of the water the volcano sent into the sky; the team’s research was published in Geophysical Research Letters.
The huge amount of water will likely raise temperatures
Earlier large volcanic eruptions have affected climate, but they usually cool temperatures, because they send light-scattering aerosols into the stratosphere. Those aerosols act as a sort of massive layer of sunscreen. But since water vapor traps heat, the Tongan eruption could temporarily raise temperatures a bit, the researchers said.
It normally takes around 2-3 years for sulfate aerosols from volcanoes to fall out of the stratosphere. But the water from the Jan. 15 eruption could take 5-10 years to fully dissipate.
