In this episode we will look at the formation of supercontinents, like Pangaea and their break up all have had an effect on climate. Moreover, volcanoes, and a multitude of super-volcanoes (known as traps), have related millions of tonnes of CO2 into the early atmosphere and drastically changed the climate. Today we sometimes get glimpses of these events may have been like, such as the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Phillipines in the early 1990s.
