^"A Year without a Summer". The Tambora eruption occurred in 1815 w/ the effects continuing for at least one year.
If I were going to defend the new thesis I guess I would focus on these: the distributions of the four volcanoes (think nukes: 4 smaller warheads the correct distance from the target center do wider damage than one large warhead dead on center) and a different, more 'effective' mix of gasses. And maybe the plumes reached unusually high altitudes, due to the shape of the volcanic cone or some such.
"Eruptions of unidentified volcanoes" - wouldn't they have left evidence that could be spotted via satellite? After all these would have to be pretty large. If they're under a forest canopy I would go for a review the Shuttle's ground-penetrating radar experiments from several years ago (http://www.pasthorizonspr.com/index.php/.... would reveal something.
And finally I wonder if that much ash and chemicals would leave a "blanket" of strata over a large portion of the earth at some depth below the top of the soil, kinda like the cosmic background noise left "all over the sky" from the Big Bang. So we should be seeing the chemicals found in the Artic all over the place.
