    Beneath Yellowstone, a volcano that could wipe out the US.

    But it will be 500,000 years before it erupts so not to worry.


    A team from the University of Utah have told the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco that Yellowstone’s magama chamber is 2.5 times larger than previously thought.
    It is an underground cavern measuring some 55 miles by 20 miles and containing between 125 and 185 billion cubic miles of molten rock.
    If it blows it will wipe out America – and have enormous impacts on the rest of the world.
    The university researchers described their discovery as “astounding.”

    Re: Beneath Yellowstone, a volcano that could wipe out the US.

    1) There's nothing new about that (at previously-thought size, it was enough to wipe out the country too).

    2) There's nothing we can do to either prevent or bring it about.

    3) Therefore, there's no reason at all to worry about for a millisecond in your daily life.

    You just lack imagination. Me, I'm short-selling every real estate company there is. My great^220 grandchildren are going to be rich!

    There has definitely been an up-tick in the number of quakes this past year.

    It is way overdue but in geologic time, who knows..

    Thanks Obummer!

    When that thing goes, If we're around for it, kiss your ass goodbye.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    But even if it's addressed as something which could happen within our lifetimes, there's no way to stop it, there's no way we can accidentally cause it, and there's no way to escape from it. If it happens, everyone's screwed. It's so totally out of our control, so there's no reason to worry about it.
