Okay so this is straight-up doom porn...don't judge me too harshly.

YELLOWSTONE REGION (INTELLIHUB) — U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) seismology reports conclude that a massive swarm of earthquakes swept through the park triggering more than 60 separate events in which seismographs spiked to magnitudes of up to 5.0. Friday.

Experts fear that the supervolcano is long overdue for an eruption capable of wiping out a vast amount of human, animal, and plant life in the Continental United States.

Scientists currently believe that there’s a 10% chance that a “supervolcanic Category 7 eruption” could take place this century, as pointed out by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku who appeared on a segment for Fox News.

The grey haired physicist told Shepard Smith that the “danger” we are now facing with the caldera is that it’s long overdue for an eruption which Kaku said could “rip the guts out of the USA.”

Kaku said that a “pocket of lava” located under the park has turned out to be twice as big as scientists originally thought.

Scientist concur that the last eruption of the caldera took place some 640,000 years ago.

If you want something a little less doom and gloom. Earthquake swarms are extremely common in Yellowstone (live well within the kill radius). They're not seeing harmonics consistent with magma movement...

True, dat, but the "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" doom porn makes for more thrilling reading. And lets me justify certain "essential" purchases to the spousal unit.

There are some good Fathers' Day sales going on. Clearly this story was divinely ordained to get wifey to loosen up the purse strings.

Absolutely. And remember to mention your children and grandchildren.

I'm thinking this volcano might just get me an AR10 this week!

I'm always amused when they bring in a physicist to discuss geology or biologist to discuss anthropology.

Not old enough to have grandchildren, and the "it's for the children" line has been so discredited by the Usual Suspects that I wouldn't think of using it.

i would much rather have a zombie apoc, EMP grid down or just about any other apocalypse then the yellow stone super vulcano specially since my proximity would mean instant death and it would likely just knock out most of the coast with no chance for survival. We should keep an eye on this and perhaps find out how far away we need to be if that super volcano does erupt to have a chance of survival.

Yea I'm pretty sure super volcano equates to world wide decades long winter scenario. Like an ice age with out the fun . Choking ash falling over most of the world. Large chunks of burning magma landing thousands of miles away.

Fleas the size of rats sucked on rats the size of cats
And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes
Coveting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers
Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Love-Me Avenue
Ripping and rewrapping mink and shiny silver fox, now legwarmers

i think 2 or 3 of the super volcanoes would have to erupt with a level 7 or higher magnitude for a world wide volcanic winter i think if yellow stone erupts alone as a level 7 it would take out around half the USA the rest would have ash and likely acid rain for a while same with Canada and mexico south america would likely have a 5-10 degree drop in average temp but would likely be mostly fine. much of this stuff gets extremely exaggerated. some marine damage would likely occur near the west coast as well not sure how severe the effects would be to Alaska. im sure it will effect the world wide weather to some degree as well but not a full nuclear/volcanic type winter unless 2 or more go off on separate sides of the world. even the scientist in the video said it would be bad but not an end of all things, and having erupted 3 times in the past and life bouncing back obviously there would be survivors but how far away is survivable is the question? i know my current location would likely be bombarded with molten slag balls and ash and unlikely to survive unless you got a great under ground bunker.

I do not know...maybe it is the CPA in me, that or maybe the asshole attorney in me, but ... Every time I see a precise and round number like "10% in the next 100 years" put forth by "scientists" I have to ask: Are you sure it is 10%? It s not 9% or 11%? You are sure it is exactly 10%? Are you sure it is a century? Can you show me the math please? All of it please, along with the assumptions and source of the data underlying the assumption. :mrgreen:

I am not saying such an eruption will not happen. It is certainly within the realm of possibility that Yellowstone can and will erupt. It has in the past. However, it is also possible that it will not erupt.

Past performance does does not guarantee future performance. That and statements like there is a 10% chance in the next 100 years that any event will happen leaves a lot of wiggle room and shows no confidence in the statement.

BTW I am not knocking this thread or the OP for posting it. :D

Aaaannnd right on cue, Michael Synder weighs in with an industrial-size portion of clickbait doom-mongery.

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/s ... t_06192017

Is it possible that the Yellowstone supervolcano is gearing up for a major eruption? If you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that I spend a lot of time documenting how the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. Most of this shaking is taking place far away from the continental United States, and so most Americans are not too concerned about it. But we should be concerned about it, because a major seismic event could change all of our lives in a single instant. For instance, a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have the potential of being an E.L.E. (extinction level event). That is why it is so alarming that there have been 296 earthquakes in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano within the last 7 days. Scientists are trying to convince us that everything is going to be okay, but there are others that are not so sure.

The biggest earthquake in this swarm occurred last Thursday evening. It was initially measured to be a magnitude 4.5 earthquake, but it was later downgraded to a 4.4. It was the biggest quake in the region since a magnitude 4.8 earthquake struck close to Norris Geyser Basin in March 2014. This magnitude 4.4 earthquake was so powerful that people felt it as far away as Bozeman…

With apologies to Jerry Lee Lewis, there's a whole lotta shakin' goin' on.

http://www.newsweek.com/yellowstone-sup ... isk-629272

Updated | Over 800 earthquakes have now been recorded at Yellowstone supervolcano over the last two weeks, with the ongoing swarm taking place on the western edge of the National Park.

But there is virtually no risk of the volcano erupting, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) currently lists the volcano alert level as normal and the aviation color, which lists the potential risk to fights, is at green.

The current earthquake swarm began on June 12. A week later, the USGS put out a statement to say that 464 earthquakes had been recorded, with the largest being magnitude 4.4 “This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years,” it said.

There has been a recent swarm of tremors around the Yellowstone volcano, but a 5.9-mag earthquake is fairly unusual.

Cue "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" headlines from the usual doom-mongers.

Here we go....

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-0 ... e-20-years

Following a swarm of over 1100 earthquakes recorded in the Yellowstone caldera over the past month, prompting scientists to voice concerns about a dormant Yellowstone "Supervolcano" slowly waking up, overnight these concerns escalated after a strong M5.8 earthquake hit western Montana early on Thursday morning - the strongest quake to hit the area in the past 20 years - the U.S. Geological Survey reported, with Reuters adding that the tremor was felt hundreds of miles away, from Missoula to Billings and some surrounding states.

resurrecting this thread with a news article but apparently no concerns were expressed, nothing to see here.... :mrgreen:

5.8 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Montana

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/natural-disas ... 01642.html

In southern Montana a 5.8 magnitude earthquake shook the region. Though its epicenter was only 230 miles from Yellowstone, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) says the seismic activity was not irregular, and the supervolcano is not expected to erupt anytime soon. The earthquake, which was the eighth largest ever recorded in Montana and largest in 34 years, comes just weeks after a flurry of smaller earthquakes hit the region.

"The location and focal mechanism solution of this earthquake are consistent with right-lateral faulting in association with faults of the Lewis and Clark line, a prominent zone of strike-slip, dip slip and oblique slip faulting trending east-southeast from northern Idaho to east of Helena, Montana, southeast of this earthquake," said the USGS.

The USGS puts the odds of a volcanic eruption at 1 in 730,000.

I think I was walking out to my garage at the time of last night's big one -I didn't feel it. I live East of Spokane. However people West of me felt it.

Is it time? :roll:

Nothing says "Super Volcano" like some shook up cheap perfume.

If the quake should shake so hard as to throw the perfume bottle to the ground and break it?
