    Scientists Warn Supervolcano Will Destroy US



    Snippit:

    Some of the world’s smartest geophysicists aren’t sleeping well anymore. Perhaps their dreams are filled with nightmares—if so, it wouldn’t be surprising since what they thought they knew about volcanoes wasn’t quite right. But now they know the truth—the terrifying reality—supervolcanoes are activating and can destroy America at any time. Maybe in 100 years…or maybe as early as next week…

    Forget about tumbling asteroids the size of mountains bombarding Earth…Stop worrying about nuclear war…Shrug off any concerns about the coming Ice Age…Doomsday is probably closer than you think and no matter where you live you probably aren’t safe from the effects of the aftermath.

    That’s the terrible reality facing scientists around the world as they scramble to revise monitoring systems to better predict the imminent destructive fury of the supervolcanoes when they blow.

    For many years volcanologists thought tomorrow was a long way off. But two scientific papers published recently reassessed the danger of several ominous U.S. volcanoes: one in Death Valley, the Ubehebe Crater, is half a mile wide and more than 700 feet deep. Believed to have last erupted thousands of years ago, it’s now known to have blasted away during the 14th Century.

    The other volcano, the famous Crater Lake cauldera in Oregon, can recharge itself in a few short decades and then explode with super-massive destructive force. Until lately, scientists believed that volcanoes also required thousands of years to become dangerously active again. They were wrong.

    And changing it is—at an alarming rate. The changes in knowledge that have come rapidly the past few years now have some scientists biting their nails over the Doomsday supervolcano in Yellowstone Park. That volcano has shown all the signs of becoming active: parts of the ground have heated to just under 1,000⁰ F while the earth is bulging from a building lava dome and a lake has completely boiled away.

    Some serious concern from the vulcanologists in the article. Scary sh*t if/when it happens.

    Hell, I'm starting to seriously wonder if the whole Mayan calendar thing isn't real. I'm not a tin foil hat wearer, but I'm not blind either.

    Supervolcanoes on the horizon.
    Our current Commander -in-Thief
    The coming financial meltdown. (which leads to----)
    The breakdown of American Society
    Civil War or Revolution
    The current situation in Syria, and potential US involvement
    The situation in Iran, and potential US involvement
    China and Russia telling the US to stay out of both or there will be WW3.
    Pending Mega-tsunami due to some pacific islands fracturing

    Plus I'm sure theres a bunch of "top 10" other reasons that things are looking bad for not just America, but the world. It's the first time in my life that I truly wonder what the future hold for the Earth and civilization as we know it. Oh well, I guess I'm rambling, but I have been thinking about these things alot lately.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    Historic Earthquakes

    Missouri was the largest quake we ever had in this country.
    Short of researching it.
    Their is a rock ledge off Africa. If it goes, Florida will have a sunamie.

    Why can't they ever warn us about roaming bands of Victoria Secrets models or being invaded by the Swedish bikini team?
