As some of you know, yellowstone park in the US is actually a supervolcano and if it erupts we're all screwed.

It's just weird that the planet giving us life can take it away so easily with such scary ways..

I don't think we should piss of nature anymore..

meh, I've had a good run. Can't go around worrying about every super volcano that might explode.

Then north America will get engulfed in fire storms, europe will go into another ice age and the terrorists'll shut up. Something like that i read. To sum it up. Yes we are boned.

Well..


What happened during the last eruption of a super volcano?
The last eruption of a super volcano was in Toba, Sumatra, 75,000 years ago. It had 10,000 times the explosive force of Mount St. Helens and changed life on Earth forever. Thousands of cubic kilometres of ash was thrown into the atmosphere - so much that it blocked out light from the sun all over the world. 2,500 miles away 35 centimetres of ash coated the ground. Global temperatures plummeted by 21 degrees. The rain would have been so poisoned by the gasses that it would have turned black and strongly acidic. Man was pushed to the edge of extinction, the population forced down to just a couple of thousand. Three quarters of all plants in the northern hemisphere were killed.


Keep in mind we have much more of a population on the planet since 75,000 years ago. But with that in mind, the Planet could easily handle drastic reduction in population so we learn to manage resources better.

Perhaps Gaia is just waiting for the right moment to use it when/if She needs it.

What if it happens?

We'll recoup after a few years, and then ABC, NBC, CBS, MTV, VH1 (with celebrities, of course), and FOX will all air stupid, mindless reality shows that deal with "struggling to survive" in the "danger zone" of the massive volcano.

Or some other stunt to keep ratings up.

I wouldn't doubt that scenario at all.

If we're about to die, I don't think relationships are going to interfere with fantasy.

Unless of course by elligible, you meant attractive.

Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Realistically would the whole of America get pwned?

Imagine if they all tried to come to get to the UK by boats and dingies.

You should start working on your own fence. Just in case.

well since the main problem would be the ash in the atmosphere, scientists would gather together to make something to combat this and remove the ash.

Gotta remember the technology change since the last supervolcano eruption.
