Super Volcano in Yellowstone

Scientists Warn Current Yellowstone Quake-Swarm "Could Rip The Guts Out Of America"

Quote:

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) seismology reports conclude that a massive swarm of earthquakes swept through the park on Friday triggering more than 60 separate events in which seismographs spiked to magnitudes of up to 5.0.
Did you feel any of that Mepps? Be careful. Sorry for my ignorance if you're nowhere near there to be affected. As I understand it, there's a massive volcano forming there and the land is rising a few inches a year due to the pressure.

No, nothing here. We're on the opposite end of the state. No worries. If it ever blew, we'd be under about thirty feet of ash. There's not really much preparation required for that sort of event.

Re: Super Volcano in Yellowstone

Geologists have no reason to believe that there is anything untoward going on. Yellowstone rises and falls regularly as the lava ebbs and flows.

Re: Super Volcano in Yellowstone

Worst case it blows and half the US is instantly dead and and all the ash in the air cools the earth and stops any chance of global warming , the same people that are worried about warming now will be trying to figure out how to make it warmer as we plunge into a new ice age

Indeed. The only preparation required is to be prepared to die. Repentance of sin, and faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and you are good to go...

Truth. But all else being equal, I'd rather not just yet.
