    Considering Yellowstone is a many many many times larger than Krakato, then well. One thing for sure is that most of the US and Canada is going to history, and with it probably much of the planet for at least a few decades.
    Are you referring to Krakatoa? It was indeed a devastating eruption that had worldwide effects.

    Besides being larger, Yellowstone isn't surrounded by ocean to blunt it's explosive force and lessen the manmade chemicals and dust thrown into the atmosphere. That multiplies the problem with a Yellowstone eruption.

    Krakatoa has rebuilt itself and is now called Anak Krakatau (child of Krakatoa). Currently it is about the same size as Krakatoa was pre-eruption.

    Yea, my bad on the spelling! And yep it has "rebuilt" it self. The explosion was massive and could be felt thousands of KM away and the Tsunami it created killed over 50k people at the time. They think that she might blow again soonish in geological terms, which aint too comforting.

    I agree. Yellowstone is one of the world's largest calderas, if not the largest. It's a supervolcano and a big eruption would have the potential to create an existential crisis for a significant share of humanity, as its impacts would be global. The Toba eruption and its after effects might provide some insight.

    The last time earth had abundant volcano activity it led to the little ice age. A super volcano would dwarf that and wipe out most if not all land species including man.

    It looks like they are just trotting up the highway. Not running for their lives...
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    i have heard the same reports that yellowstone is due or a catastrophic explosion. whether it happens or not is a different story, but from what i understand if and when it blows it will make mount St. Helen look like a firecracker.

    it would be a Vesuvius type of explosion or worse.
    Animals are valid indicators of something that's about to happen.

    Take my dog for instance, whenever there's a thunderstorm eminent, he runs under the dining table, and has that "look out, I'm a crazed dog, looking for a place to hide" in his eyes.

    When we lived near Elephant Butte, when the thunderstorms came through, because of the mountains and the lake and Rio Grande, thunder used to just roll, and roll and roll on forever. The dog had nowhere to hide, so we'd both get onto the bunk in the camper, and I'd hold his vibrating body til it passed.

    Mine does the same thing when I'm about to Dutch Oven my wife and kids on Friday movie nights.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I would like to think that in the thousands of years until it's expected for the caldera to blow we would develop methods to carry out a series of controlled pressure releases. Or worse comes to worse we've made at least some inroads to colonizing other planets.
