Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...
Yellowstone, Wyoming. In spring 2003, strange things began happening in America's most famous national park. The tallest geyser in the world, which can go 50 years without erupting, burst into life. Spraying columns of superheated water, 100s of feet into the air. There were new cracks in the ground, the ground heated up to the point where the National Park Service had to close some trails. Not long after, a group of bison collapsed and died, victims of poisonous fumes from below the ground. Satellite pictures revealed that something ominous was happening beneath the earth. On the internet, unfounded rumours spread that a super volcano, an eruption so large, that it only occurs on average every 700,000 years, was about to blow. These things happen, you can look at the earth and see the scars. They happen, and they're going to happen again.
A million times more powerful than Hiroshima, super volcanoes are real events. Over 20 have been recorded in the history of the earth and over half of these happened in the USA. For the last 30 years scientists have been investigating where the next super volcano could erupt. Their research has revealed that an active super volcano exists under Yellowstone National Park. Naked Science follows these scientists and investigates the vital question, if the Yellowstone Caldera erupted today, could we survive? This documentary includes a Yellowstone timeline of past eruptions, how Yellowstone would affect the world, and what impact will it be for the United States.

The geothermal electrical generation potential in both Yellowstone region and east/ central african nations (Rift valley) is greater than anywhere else on the planet, yet goes unmentioned. Can volcanic potential pressures/temperatures be relieved by exploiting their turbine turning potential on a super scale? The amount of heat within 10,000 meters (about 33,000 feet) of Earth's surface contains 50,000 times more energy than all the oil and natural gas resources in the world. Wonder why it is so potentially dangerous and simultaneously so potentially profitable $$? Why are the paleontologists/students in Ash Falls, Ne. not wearing protective filter masks when they excavate/handle fossils from ultra fine volcanic ash? I mean if it killed their fossils one might think it hazardous to be digging in it unprotected.-

They need to build the worlds largest prison in Yellowstone park. Then when it does blow, it takes out all the scum of the earth, quick as a flash. Cheap &

8-12 thousand years is my guess. I looked up some stuff about it like aerial views and measurements taken of the magna chamber etc... and looks to me like it is cutting a path through the mountain range and when it is completely under it the pressure builds up and blows entire mountains into the air. The plume isn't totally under the mountain yet at this point in time, and there is pressure release through things like old faithful, and the ground can move up and down with the pressure at the moment soaking up the pressure a little. I did a quick rough calculation given that tectonic plates move at a bout three inch's a year and came up with about 8-12 thousand years before it erupts again .

I dont mean to make anyone uncomfortable by writing this but God loves you. I know alot of people dont like to hear that but I didnt listen to God last year and one of my taekwondo coaches got killed(God did not kill my coach). He was like a brother to me so I'm sorry but I have to write this. I know that sometimes in life alot of things dont make sense but I promise you there is life in Jesus. I would have put a bullet in my brain last year if there wasn't. Please follow and accept Jesus Christ. But also remember Jesus didn't die for you just so you could go to heaven one day but still live like hell till you get there. He died to get heaven back into you. The thing that makes heaven so beautiful is not the streets of gold or the singing angels its the overwhelming love, peace, and joy. Its the fact that there is no more evil, no more need to be afraid. Its the fact that God is there. When you accept and follow Jesus the bible says the spirit of God will come and live inside of you, and God through his spirit and his word will teach you to have overwhelming love, peace and joy. Also because of the sacrifice of Jesus there will be no more evil in you. You will have God guiding you so there is no longer a need to fear. If you simply listen to him all the peace, joy and purpose we seek in this life will be given to you through obedience to Jesus Christ. You're all awesome. Dont listen to the world when it says you are insignificant, its not true! You are more than significant. You do matter! You're not a mistake! You were meant to be one of God's children. So please follow and accept Jesus Christ, life will start to make sense when you do.There is so much more to this existence. There is so much that is there but cannot be seen. I will be praying for anyone who reads this as long as I'm on earth. I have faith that you will see God's hand in your life. Its not over! Keep going! I love you and God loves you even more. God bless and have a great day! theres a guy named dan mohler on youtube that explains the gosple of Christ very well, Look up Dan Mohler- what is our purpose Also Clayton Jennings, David Hernandez, Todd White, Marcus Rogers, Francis Chan and Paul Washer

Oh shoot! I thought we were relatively safe in the UK as we are not near any faults that cause earthquakes and volcanos. Looks like if an eruption in Iceland doesn't get us, then an eruption in the Canary Islands will cause a 160 foot tsunami which will hit us! And we have just moved to the South coast of Cornwall... :o :(

America is Babylon the Harlot according to the Bible...and God declares that He will destroy the Harlot in a single day, in less than one hour, by fire and literally she will become desolate and only a habitation for demons. And God's Word will not return to Him void.

Wouldn't the explosion be much much bigger than 60 miles?! Not only that, but wouldn't the force of the explosion upset all the other active volcanoes around the area? You know, Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainer, Mount Hood, just to name a few? Did volcanic scientist forget about the ring of fire?! Sorry, I'm not trying to sound like I know more than a scientist, but it just seems to me that they are down playing the destruction a tad bit.

I watched Krakatoa earlier today.(03-10-18). When that volcano exploded in 1883, it had a global influence and the shock wave went around the earth, 7 times.. It blew so much material in to the atmosphere, it cooled the Earth temperature into a mini ice age.. This event would be nothing compared to what Yellow stone will do, i can imagine

Began watching this, then Bill McGuire shows up. I moved on before I had to hear his mantra - "Its not a question of if ..."or, "The smoking gun.." According to Bill, were all going to die horrble deaths from mile high tsunamis, or be swallowed up by erathqakes and burnt to cinders by volcanoes. Theres good business in predicting doom and gloom, even better business shaping science to promote books and getting on the telly. I'm outta here.

Very interesting but it's strange that there is no mention of the Taupo eruption in New Zealand in AD186. Effects noted in China and the Mediterranean.
MrWombatty 20 dni temu
The CGI of the eruption really irritates me, not just because they keep repeating it, but because it's so inaccurate in it's depiction! From what I've read about volcanoes & especially these extremely massive eruptions like Taupo in NZ, is that while the sequence of eruption may have several stages it would begin with a large momentous explosion possibly ejecting all the material of the bulging dome outward in all directions as well as vertically. Then the sides of the caldera will collapse into the the magma-chamber possibly producing an even greater eruption ejecting kms of tethra & lava high into the stratosphere! The graphics in this video look more like that of blasting seen at an open-cut mine!

Merry Christmas, Please understand transparency about the animal mass grave that was created by a super volcanic eruptions... The scientists mentioned a rhino,horse,camel, and other animals in the mass grave in the United States. Please understand transparency and mention all the other animals that were found in the mass graves. Camels are suppose to be from the Middle East and the Rhino suppose to come from Africa. Both were found in mass graves in United States from a super volcano eruption. Who transported these animals in ancient times in order to have these animals here in the United States mass graves of animals? What was the mode of transportation? ETN 🐣..

I think with the vast number of geysers around Yellowstone National Park, enough gas and pressure is realeased from the geysers to keep the super volcano from exploding so violently.

Watch it again. The gas is bubbles trapped in the melted rock, magma. A geyser is ground water turned to steam from the heat being near the magma dome. Common dude basic geology you should know. Must be american born after 2000

I would be more afraid of our own government doing such..
Do you realize that we might be able to solve two major problems on this planet at once? We can begin by putting thousands of geo-thermal pipes down into the ground pulling huge volumes of heat from under the Earths blanket, then using that heat to compress air, then piping that air all around the country so we can use the compressed air to generate electricity so cheap that your entire electric bill for the year would be less then $200!! I can show you exactly how you can do this! And if your state is located over this caldera, you can offer free electricity to companies who want to locate in your state! Your cash cow just might be what you see as being a possible threat to the end of your state! see here and like the page, and tell your friends!

I'm not getting the math here. They said a supervolcano would be 1000 times Mt. St. Helens, which itself was something like 500 Hiroshima bombs. So wouldn't that be 500,000 Hiroshima bombs for a supervolcano? Yet they said it's only 50 times bigger than the biggest bomb the Russkies set off. So does that mean the Russian nuke was 10,000 times stronger than Hiroshima?

The Earth's recovery mechanism might just lead us to a tool that might be used to reduce the effects of a volcanic eruption. The detonation of large quantities of inert, supercooled gases might reduce the amount of ash ejected into the atmosphere. Gases such as liquid helium or liquid nitrogen might cause the ash to become too heavy to remain airborne and drop back into the caldera or close to it. Somewhere around the world there's always a volcano spewing clouds of ash into the air. Find one and dump a planeload of dry ice onto it and see what happens. If you get a clear sky you've got your answer.
