On the assessment of volcanic eruptions as global catastrophic or existential risks

Thank you, Mike and Lara, for posting this analysis of the threat that large scale volcanic activity poses.  This is rarely, if ever, covered in the media, and then only for a day or two when a specific eruption is occurring.  I have long observed that this is not being taken seriously.   We hear constant hysterical reporting about the possible effects of climate change (of which we still do not know enough about), but nothing about the absolute certainty of a major volcanic eruption taking place. 

I have read that there seems to be some correlation between grand solar minimums and increasing volcanic activity.  Have you come across any research on this?

Thanks and Regards,
