Okay, a bit of a necro, but I do hope that you realize that volcanoes cause cooling rather than heating right?

Volcanos emit far more particulates than gasses.
Heat is absorbed by the earth and re-emitted and infared energy. Gasses do not block solar energy, but reflect infared energy back towards the earth. Particulates block solar energy and reflect it back out to space, while they allow infared energy to escape. Volcanos produce cooling effects.

We've found no evidence of Hawaii's volcanoes releasing aerosols into the atmosphere, the real key to volcanic wintering. The Great Dying 252 million years ago was fashioned by heating, not freezing.

Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is a particulate and reflects solar radiation butt has no effect on infared radiation.

Wait, so fact that the entire center of Pangea would have been desert has no bearing on the plausibility of the issue? Most habitable area would be the coastline. Not to mention, Acid rain severly affects plant growth through the leaching of alkaline and metallic elements from the soil. Elements that are necessary for life.
No doubt that volcanism had a role, but volcanism causing heating? No serious geologist believes that any more. Volcanoes exude far more particulates than they do gasses, the difference is that particulates are usually gotten out of the atmosphere in a few weeks as opposed to a gasses residence time of a few hundred to a few thousand years.

I'm focusing on CO2 and CH4.

Wait, if I remember this right, didn't the volcanoes light a bunch of coal fields on fire, and all the sulfur and ash and crap blocked out the sun and stagnated the oceans?
