Yellowstone Super Volcano Activity Has Sent Scientists Scurrying

Yellowstone may be a few dozen millennia overdue for an eruption, and that’s why men like Robert Smith are so important.

Of all the ways in which the world could be catastrophically changed, none seems quite as dramatic as what would occur should the Yellowstone super volcano erupt in earnest.

The fears were first thrust into the American public eye by the film 2012, where actor Woody Harrelson plays a lone-nut conspiracy theorists convinced that the Yellowstone caldera cold violently explode, sending ash and debris into the atmosphere.  From there, the planet begins to cool down thanks to the sun-blocking effects of the dust, and then we would find ourselves in a cataclysmic situation.

And while the movie is thankfully just a movie, the possibility of a mass extinction event on earth caused by the Yellowstone super volcano is all too real.

The Yellowstone volcano has erupted three times in history – 2.1 million years ago, 1.2 million years ago and 640,000 years ago. Scientists have previously revealed that, should an earthquake occur, it could take less than two weeks before a catastrophic reaction event with the potential to wipe out three-quarters of the US is triggered. Now, it is the job of geologists to “intensely monitor” a large area of molten rock directly below the surface of the supervolcano, it was revealed in a documentary.

Should this molten rock reach the surface of the earth, there are very real concerns about an eruption.  Good thing we have guys like Robert Smith.

Robert Smith, from the University of Utah, is in charge of the seismometers around Yellowstone National Park.

Mr Smith revealed during History Channel documentary “Deadliest Volcanoes” how important it is to constantly watch Yellowstone.

He said in 2014: “We have seismic vaults with seismographs inside.

“These send signals along a network and report it back to my computer in Salt Lake City.

“The seismograph does two things – it records the earthquakes that are active, then they also scan the subsurface we cannot see.

After collecting this data, scientists are then able to make a 3D reconstruction of what lies below the surface.  This allows experts to analyze the data, and map precisely where the concerning magma is located.

Lucky for us, or maybe unlucky for us, there are several experts who believe that Yellowstone is overdue for an eruption.

Video: Joe Biden Says DACA Recipients ‘More American Than Most Americans’ (Watch)

Americans might have a thing or two to say about that…

2020 Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t think drunk driving is a felony, when illegal aliens do it. No joke. He said he wouldn’t deport an illegal over a drunk driving offense. How terrible is that? But Joe didn’t stop there. He went further. He is now saying DACA illegals are “more American than most Americans” because they do well in school. This is your Democrat frontrunner, folks… WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWX3i9Amxxw&feature=emb_logo Reactions: https://twitter.com/CoolCzech1/status/1220476467412377600?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220476467412377600&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F https://twitter.com/CasualSemi/status/1220474912185470976?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220474912185470976&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F https://twitter.com/RealRegularJoe/status/1220476216341385218?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220476216341385218&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F Biden should easily lose the Democrat nomination based on his own merit. That’s how terrible a candidate he really is. However, Joe’s son Hunter is making things so much harder on the 2020 presidential campaign, given how he’s such a total screw-up. After Burisma and the baby mama drama, Hunter may now be linked to multiple criminal probes. Not just one. Multiple. From New York Post: Hunter Biden is the subject of multiple criminal investigations related to “fraud, money laundering and a counterfeiting scheme,” it’s claimed in court documents filed Monday in his Arkansas paternity case. The claims were put forward by a Florida-based private-eye firm, D&A Investigations, in Biden’s ongoing case against alleged baby mama Lunden Alexis Roberts, a former Washington, DC, stripper who went by “Dallas.” WATCH: To open a very serious hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivers a completely made-up account of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian President. Very normal and professional. https://twitter.com/BlazeTV/status/1177218754557751296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177218754557751296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call Reactions: If the conversation were as damning as Schiff et al would like, he would have simply read directly from it, instead of making up dialogue.

After three years out of the spotlight, it appears Barack Obama is ready to get back into the game. Why? Who knows? It’s not as if anyone is asking him to come back. Maybe he feels it is his duty.

Corruption? Those two words do not belong in the same sentence! Barack was the greatest leader that America, nay, THE WORLD, has ever seen!
