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?

Construct a conveyor apparatus on wheels to convey large masses of garbage and dump society's unrecyclable waste into the lava. And when the volcano starts to erupt, use locomotives or heavy hauler trucks to haul the wheeled conveyor away from the volcano.

If this goes, it's all over folks. 7 billion humans will be reduced to a few hundred thousand, if that, in a matter of months. A few scattered handfuls of herders in low density regions, maybe some exceptionally wealthy few in armored bunkers. Everywhere else will be choked of clean water and fresh sun. International markets would enter freefall, trade would halt, food would not enter cities, public services would cease, people will fight over clean air and water.

Given the size difference in each of the past three I think it’s fair to say that the amount of ash will be relative to Mount St. Helens. At least if the projections were right about the sizes.

COULD be huge??? This situation is well known among Geologists, Scientists, etc... When this thing finally goes off... half the U.S. becomes uninhabitable Where the real wonder is... whether is YellowStone or the San Andreas goes first... or maybe one triggers the other!!! I’m 33 now... and I’m almost positive the San Andreas fault is going to slip in a major way within’ my lifetime. There is so much pressure built up...a lot of geologists know that it’s an overwhelming amount, and we’re all just kind of waiting. It’s actually surprisingly predictable... we know it is going to FOR SURE happen, but it’s already past due... so we’re just waiting...sadly

1 Thessalonians 4:16 Context 13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the TRUMP OF GOD: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

For all of you people who are spazzing out and believing that Yellowstone is about to erupt: This has been an ongoing speculation for DECADES that Yellowstone is going to erupt “soon”. People, please do some research or read a book for once. If you did either of those things, you would be informed that Yellowstone gives off all kinds of thermal activity, constantly. That’s what Yellowstone does, and that’s what it’s supposed to do. It’s one of the most dynamic places on Earth. Also, Yellowstone’s thermal activity is nothing new. Contrary to the media reports and all these recent youtube videos that are spreading unnecessary fear of an upcoming supervolcanic eruption, Yellowstone will most likely not even erupt in our lifetime. While geyser eruptions can be dangerous if you’re standing too close, they do not present an increased risk of a larger Yellowstone supervolcanic eruption. Geyser eruptions are a normal and regular part of Yellowstone’s volcanic system. I’m not saying that Yellowstone is NOT going to erupt soon because I am not God, for he knows all. But you people are hyping this possibility up way too much and it’s getting annoying at this point. There’s been rumors and speculations of Yellowstone blowing it’s lid for decades. And here we are still hyping it up!! Just stop it already.

Yellowstone erupts every 700,000 to 800,000 years. The last eruption was 640,000 years ago so we have at least another 60,000 years before the next eruption.

No, if you live near Yellowstone , you are already dead! Yellow stone is the second largest Super volcano in the entire planet. I am completely taken back by the fact that the Us government has not shut this area down due to public safety! OH THAT'S RIGHT, THEY SIMPLY THINK OF US AS COLLOIDAL CAUSALITIES! What was I thinking? So, basically you are screwed, not only because of where you live, but because there will not be any help offered in the event of an imminent eruption,so think about that for a moment,and ask yourself, am I still in America? because it is going to get pretty blurred from here on in. GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS
