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?

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.

2:50 that is not even close to the actual scale. St Helens had a ejection volume of around 1km³ - Yellowstone around 1000 km³ !

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

There is no evidence of a victim due to the eruption. Unlike other volcanic eruptions that leave evidence of the eruption. Yellowstone is only something ordinary from an area that includes a ring of fire and is normal when the area has a sulfur pool. yellowstone has no proof of EXPLOSION VICTIM. If only a hot water pool, Japan would be considered as having a super volcano from the USA.

So, serious-ish question. If the pressure is building, is there any way to relieve some of it with burrowing a hole sort of close to it? Like, if there's pressure on the brain, you remove a piece of the skull to relieve the pressure from inflammation. Would doing something similar help or hurt the situation??? If you want a comedic way of looking at my question: why can't we pop it like a zit?

The only way to stop an eruption is to release the pressure before explosion. Build giant robot drill platforms and drill into magma chambers, let the lava flow, releasing the pressure. Areas will be devastated but it is better than waiting for more pressure to build up. Save our country save our planet Pump excess sea water in and use the steam to make electricity to run the drills. Big project, lots of jobs, would take several years to set up and activate.

I think our earth has had just about enough of us. I don't know if she cares about all the rape, murder, thievery etc that occurs but I'm willing to bet fracking sludge, C2O, aerosols, pesticide run off, cities like Bejing's air pollution, ravaging of the rain forests, the murder of entire species, and polluting of the oceans is. The old gal is going to shake us off like a bad case of fleas.

There is nothing we can do about it. It’s the planet earth. We don’t own or control it. It’s like people building a house next to the ocean and realize the beach is getting closer and want to stop it. It was happening before they built the house and will continue long after the house is gone. The earth will be here long after people are gone too

Jesus is coming back soon! Repent and turn from your sin, believe the gospel, become born again & be filled with the Holy Ghost and read the King James Bible. You don't want Jesus to say "Depart from me, I never knew you." You don't need religion, you just need Jesus.

if anyone believes in God, the Creator who made the heavens and Earth and the Universe over 6,000 years ago; then this evolutionary theories by Darwin of yellowstone being over millions and 640,000 years old since the last 2-3 eruptions is not true . There was Noah's flood that destroyed and covered the entire earth in The Genesis story due to man's evil wickedness and now as Christ prophecied in Matthew, we will see the Signs Of The Times during these Last Day Events "... of Earthquakes in diver places, famines, pestilence and signs in the Heavens etc. There will be rumors of war, ... Nation Vs Nation,.. Kingdom Vs Kingdom.. Jesus, said to " Look up for your redemption draweth nigh..." Jesus is coming back soon and There will be one great earthquake felt around the whole world. After Armeggedon ( when Satan- the Devil will try to attack the New Jerusalem City of God {that comes down from Heaven, after the 1000 year MIlleniium of the Translated Saiints reign in Heaven} then God will destroy the wicked by fire ( in the Lake of Fire) Read Ellen G. White's audio writings of the Great Controversy, Last Day Events, and Early Writings for more Truths from God! Also of Amazing Facts, Amazing Discoveries, Charles D. Brooks, and Mol Ministries, and Apocalypse Ministries, Bible Explorations, and David Gates Sermons for the Truth from God!
