What If Yellowstone's
Supervolcano Erupted?

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 10/10/2019 8:36:50 AM

With its spouting geysers, majestic mountains, awe-inspiring waterfalls, and panoramic views, Yellowstone National Park has the undeniable power to uplift. But it also has an unparalleled potential to destroy. Concealed beneath the park rests the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano in North America. Each year, millions of visitors trek over a massive magma chamber that, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), stretches from 5 km to 17 km beneath the surface and is about 90 km long and about 40 km wide. A little deeper rests another chamber that's 4.5 times larger. The Yellowstone supervolcano has unleashed three cataclysmic eruptions in the past 2.1 million years;

Comments:

Yeah, I know there are all kinds of scary end-of-the-world possibilities out there, but the Yellowstone caldera is particularly ominous.

Yawn. Is it that time of the year again? Tell me ONE thing that can be done to prevent it. Until then you might as well write about California breaking off into the ocean, or the New Madrid fault swallowing up the Mississippi. Just easy words to fill a page. The only surprise is it wasn't in Texas Monthly.

It would be a disaster. If it erupted, what scare tactic could the Environazis use to scare peole into totalitarianism?

FTA: "So what are the chances that this could actually happen? Thankfully, very low. The USGS estimates the probability at 1 in 730,000 in any given year." 'Nuff said.

At 77 years of age, the Yellowstone eruption is way down on my list of worries. I guess it will blow at some point in time but by then maybe science will have a way to prevent the worst of it. The current Democrat Party is by far the gravest threat to the USA.

#3, That number is misleading. If Old Faithful erupts every 60 minutes, it could be said that the chance of it erupting is 1 in 60 for any given minute... but it is clearly cyclical, so the longer it goes without eruption the more likely it is to erupt with each passing minute. Same with the Super Volcano. It erupts every 700,000 years or so. The last eruption was about 640,000 years ago. The 'chances' are NOW more like 1 in 60,000. The last THREE eruptions were 2,100,000, 1,300,000 and 640,000. Do the math. 800,000 between the first an second, 660,000 between the second and third and 640,000 since the last one. I would say this merits paying attention and not burying one's head in the sand by calling this just another scare tactic. This is not global warming. This is a known thing that is discoverable and open to legitimate study.

And what if the moon fell to the Earth? What if the Sun went unstable and turned into a Red Giant and fried the whole planet? Give me a break. These are all things which are at least theoretically possible, but are so remote as to be ridiculous to worry about. And ALL of these "possibilities" are totally beyond our control. We can't do anything, so just stop with the silly articles.

These articles are the kind of thing that hit the media on slow news days, or are put there for people who need something in Nature to fear, or for those simply sick of politics. There are some things we can something about. Others, not so much.

Reminds me of the Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy quote - "when I die what I hope they say about me is 'that guy sure owed me a lot of money.'" If the eruption occurred I'd be thinking "why did I remain debt free except for a modest mortgage and why did I save so hard for retirement?" I will feel that way if Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders are elected too.

A more likely disaster is a large earthquake in the region. An earthquake just outside of Yellowstone in the late 1950s caused considerable damage and loss of life. A lot more people live in the area now...

The worst case scenario would mean lights out for the United States and Canada and probably the loss of half our population. There isn't anything our government or anybody else can do about it. The good news is that the Green New Deal would automatically be implemented.

I was glad when the article stated that ”the USGS estimates the probability (of it exploding) at 1 in 730,000 in any given year.” Until they added: “There have been some discussions at NASA about boring into Yellowstone's magma chambers and pumping in cold water…” What could go wrong? Probably nothing. They are scientists...remember?

I laughed and told her I thought in a crisis I could feed the entire extended family for two weeks. She thought a minute and then asked, "What happens after two weeks?" I replied that by then the crisis would be over. I call that positive thinking.

The northern snakehead is a long, blotchy-patterned fish that can breathe on land and travel on the ground by wriggling its slippery body. But those might not be the species’ most nightmarish qualities. Snakeheads have a voracious appetit; they've been known to chow down not only on other fish, but also crustaceans, reptiles, mammals and small birds. They are invasive to the United States, threatening to displace native species and upset the balance of aquatic ecosystems. The fish have been reported in more than a dozen states across the nation and, as Christine Hauser reports for the New York Times, they have now been found

Given his low and static polling, it’s hard to tell what, exactly, Beto O’Rourke hopes to accomplish by staying in the presidential race. But while his actual goal seems a bit elusive, he is increasingly playing a very specific role: the human straw man, the embodiment of every seemingly irrational conservative fear about what the left really wants. Consider O’Rourke’s appearance at Thursday’s CNN town hall on LGBTQ issues, at which he told moderator Don Lemon that churches and other nonprofits should lose their tax exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage, a position tantamount to declaring war on Catholic parishes and evangelical congregations across the country, not to mention

Normally, Simone Biles ends her floor exercise routine with her right hand on her chest, her left up in the air, as her music comes to a close. But during Thursday’s all-around competition, she changed it up. Instead of her normal pose, she dropped the mic to finish off her set. She didn’t need to wait for the score. Biles—and everyone else—knew that she had just locked in her fifth world all-around title, breaking records as she did it. Biles, who grew up in Spring, had won the title by just over two points, the highest margin of victory under the post-10 scoring system.

There is no easier way to make the left mad than being a gay Republican. This time, it’s the Stonewall Democratic Club that’s up in arms. Stonewall is a group of LGBT Democrats who purport to champion “equality for all.” You wouldn’t know this from their record. Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) during his first term. These acts outlawed gay marriage and military service for openly LGBT soldiers, respectively. It took 20 years to undo that codified discrimination. But Stonewall endorsed Clinton for reelection in 1996 anyway.

It all started with a business deal gone bad. In 1963, Henry Ford II, "the Deuce," decided he wanted Ford Motor Company to go racing. The only problem: Ford didn't have a sports car in its portfolio. The quickest way to acquire a sports car, the Deuce thought, was to buy Ferrari, then a race car company that only sold street-legal machines to fund its track exploits. Ford sent an envoy to Modena, Italy, to hash out a deal with Enzo Ferrari. The Americans offered $10 million, but as the negotiations neared their conclusion, Ferrari balked at a clause in the contract that said Ford would control the budget

Jerry Brown (D) on three different occasions. But Newsom signed it, thereby expanding California’s one-handgun-a-month rule to include long guns as well. In the signing the purchase limits, Newsom intimated he is still unsure about the number of guns Californians should be able to buy. He said: There’s a sense that if you feel like someone has a right to access something, you can restrict it but with certain limitations.
