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.

Save conservative media!

Such a shame…

Hating America has seemingly never been cooler than it is today. It is really sad to see how so many people don’t understand how good they have it, and would rather cause violence and disruption instead of making the nation an even better place. Here’s some of what went down in DC on Independence Day, via TDW: Far-left activists trampled on an American flag in Washington, D.C., on the nation’s 244th birthday.

The activist group wants the DC police department defunded, prison and jails dismantled, and stop and frisk tactics ended — all initiatives they say Mayor Bowser hasn’t invested in.

The NFL is set to play the “Black National Anthem” before all week one games kickoff this upcoming season. The NBA has already said it will paint “Black Lives Matter” on courts. But they’re not stopping there. Check this out, per ESPN: The National Basketball Players Association and the NBA reached an agreement Friday on social justice messages that can be displayed above the numbers on the backs of jerseys when the league resumes play July 30, a source told ESPN’s The Undefeated. The list of the suggested social messages that were agreed upon by the NBPA and the NBA and then made available to players via email, per the source, are: Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can’t Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor. […] After the first four nights, a player can simply go back to their last name. If they choose to continue showing a social message, their name would go below the number. Check out the thoughts of this former ESPN reporter on the George Floyd rioters and looters, via Sporting News: Palmer was offering his thoughts on the protests across the United States in the wake of George Floyd’s death. On Thursday night, Palmer quote-tweeted a photo of a burning building with the caption, “Burn that s— down. Burn it all down.” But shortly after midnight on Sunday, Palmer had a change of tone once protesters showed up closer to where he lived. Here’s Palmer’s deleted tweet: And here’s the follow-up (screenshotted, in case he deletes…
