One of the world's largest supervolcanoes erupted 2.1 million years ago in Yellowstone, and then twice more there at intervals of roughly 660,000 years. Are we due for another one soon?

Who cares, if it blows it blows, nothing you do to prepare will make any difference. Worrying about it gets you no where. I am surprised that the Smithsonian Channel uses the same fear mongering tactics as everyone else.

Why don’t we just tax everyone that lives in states around Yellowstone and cool the ground? If liberals can control the climate surely we can cool and stop a volcano

so we think this thing is big and will do a lot of damage if it explodes. so why dont we dig a big channel for the lava to flow, then drill a big hole and let the prssure out. like a big hot zit. poke a hole in it.

There is Discovery? ( I think) movie Supervulcano. And after that I had to ask - just in case if all predictions would show that supereruption is going to happen (and magma chamber will have to release pressure until its back to balance and ready to go sleep for another 1/2 millions years. Would it make sence to use ICBM to release pressure faster and reduce time with grounded aviation (including resque teams) even if maximal power would be greater?

The likelihood of this happening in our lives in low, but it’s possible. If it happens, the jokes here in the comment section are going to be really tragic.

We should stop fawning over that area and referring it as an untouchable precious wonder of the world. That maybe so, but it's a tremendous thermal resource that we can exploit in the mean time before it may kill us all. In an ironic twist, it could help save or extend our current existence by putting an end to the use of fossil fuels to produce energy. Iceland produces all of its power from volcanic high order geothermal. Yellowstone has great potential to do the same here, to produce enough electrical power to potentially power all of North America with Mexico. The absorption and conversion of the heat in the upper levels of the Yellowstone areal could potentially delay an eruption by helping to solidify some of the magma in the chamber, strengthening the top of the chamber and reducing the chance of failure, meanwhile we benefit from an almost limitless supply of clean electrical energy.

It may never erupt again. There may be too much space down there now. From the last eruptions. Space to absorb the build up of material and pressure that is happening. Not to mention the substantial amount of venting that exists in the area. In which at least some pressure is safely released. And all the space and solidified magma or rock to prevent any eruption. I think we're good.

I suggest drill a hole, so the lava can come out now little by little, to prevent the big one.

This is a life changing, world altering event. Timelines will read "X-Year" AY: After Yellowstone. The U.S. will not survive as we know it, and yes Europe will get caught in it too and so will Asia. Remember how Eyjafjallajökull wreaked havoc on your airways? That was just a VEI 4. What people forget to mention is that an eruption like this will likely be blowing out crap for months, maybe even over a year or even a couple of years. The ash WILL circle the globe. Now, the bright side. Some people seem to think this will be an extinction level event. It's not. Millions, maybe even a billion people will die, but the southern hemisphere will get off pretty easy. People living hundreds of miles in any direction will die right away, trapped in the tombs of their houses before the roofs collapse. Those outside will suffocate in the ash as it fills with inhaled powdered rock and turns to liquid cement. A thousand miles away, you'll live like those in the surrounding counties of Washington state did in the first couple of days following Mt. St. Helens eruption. You'll have to sweep your roofs to keep the ash from building up to the point of collapsing, and you'll need masks to go out side. The grain belt is dead, so prepare for famine and disease. This too will effect Europe and Asia as even though you'll get far less ash, what does fall will still be enough to poison your crops if you don't build a shelter over them to keep it out. And then there's the volcanic winter. Only in this case it's more like a volcanic ice age. One of the interesting upsides to all this, while the northern hemisphere is pretty much f**ked that great big Sahara desert? With the ash it gets, and the increased rainfall and cooler temperatures that could last 100 years or better before it normalizes again, could just become a jungle again like it used to be once upon a long time ago. Ocean levels will drop dramatically as the northern hemisphere's temperatures drop. Maybe enough to seclude the Mediterranean once again??? Maybe not. So what do places like New Zealand, and Australia have to suffer? An unstable economy where everyone depends on them. Also Australia will like change due to dramatic global cooling more places could be hospitable, and a huge increase in immigration as one of the only stable countries with a large landmass able to fit so many people displaced and seeking refuge from the northern hemisphere. Africa and South America will also be invaded by refugees, and a whole new kind of cultural and industrial revolution will take place as it's populace increases and changes in demographics. The tribalism? Gone. All that crap about how the western world is destroying society? Well now it's the northern world invading the south and taking all their old habits with them, as well as their expectations of certain creature comforts. Wars will break out as the Americans and Europeans push their ideas of how life should be on those to the south. Rainforests will be cleared to make way for more occupiable land as new metropolises pop up. 100 years after Yellowstone erupts next, the world will be completely different. Old countries will cease to exist and new ones will rise to superpowers. The great conifer forests of the north will be looked at much like the rainforests of the south are now, untouchable and the most vital resource for oxygen on the planet we have second to phytoplankton plumes in the oceans.
