Signs of the Apocalypse: A More Mega Megavolcano

Good news everybody! Scientists have recently announced that the giant magma caldera beneath Yellowstone National Park is a bit bigger than previously thought . . . and by “a bit” they mean approximately 250% bigger.  How fun!  Add to that, that considering past eruptions of the megavolcano, we are likely in the geological time frame of another eruption, and it is like the most apocalyptic Christmas present this year.

In all seriousness, I file the eventual eruption of the Yellowstone caldera as a “real apocalyptic event.” The effects of an eruption of that volcano would cause some devastating effects to the world as a whole and to the United States specifically.  world climates would be effected for years.  Ash from the eruption would ground all flights across the globe. Ash fall would likely wipe out the agricultural functions of the vast majority of the Midwest.  Very likely millions of people will die. All around it is kind of a bad deal.

So yeah . . . there’s a sign of apocalypse for you.
