Rapid Ice Age Cooling


Part 1



This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis, Ark Encounter, and the Creation Museum.


In 1980, Mount St. Helens in Washington state blew its top. Ash shot sixteen miles into the sky. Ash fell on eleven states. Though this cloud was massive, it was still relatively small compared to how big our earth is. Yet the cloud cooled the whole earth by a fraction of a degree!

The rock record in the ground is filled with volcanic ash. And we know during the global flood of Noah’s day, there was intense volcanic activity. Many of these volcanoes erupted during the end stages of the flood, and shortly after it ended.

Can you imagine how much ash was in the atmosphere?

All this ash would’ve reflected sunlight, cooling the earth--perfect for forming an ice age.
