He is insane but greed is seldom sane, gold fever and all.
But I was thinking on the yellowstone issue and this brought it back to mind, as the magma chamber is obviously swelling and getting ready to blow at
some future point would it not be an intelligent move to try to find a way to reduce the pressure in a managed fashion, I know it would amount to the
single largest project in human history given the size of the caldera and looking back at the deccan traps in india which were created by another
supervolcano about 65 million years ago, en.wikipedia.org...
Of course he and his financial backers are being more than presumptuous if they think they can get away with such a game of geologically
destabilizing subterranean extraction as and if the Yellowstone calder explodes it will effect far more than north america and will cause a volcanic
winter across the world much like a nuclear winter so not only would this be brought up in the UN as a serious question of national interest for every
other nation on the planet but he could very well become guilty of genocide if not the extinction of the human race as well as a global extinction
level event which will effect all life on this planet, that is honestly how bad the eruption could get.
But a managed bleed off by building artifical lava tubes (the Subterrain comes to mind but it would need one hell of a cooling upgrade) to syphon off
the lava and gases safely), also it could provide more than surplus power using steam turbines to power all of america freely as a by product, and
also allow the sale of excess spare energy of which there would then be a surplus but of course that much free energy coupled with the electric motor
would have the CEO's of oil and gas conglomerates up in arms and they would do everything possible to stop it even if it meant the end of the world,
but think of the spin off technology's, new heat resistant applications and technology's.
Imagine a nation with sufficiant free energy to distribute freely to all it's citizens, the money spent on new electronic's and consumerism boost,
the rapid electronic highway's and train's, the all night hydroponic fields with illuminated crops growing at increased speed to provide more
efficiant farming and the surplus produce potentially ending starvation at least in that country, the rebirth of the city's and of the entire
Now realize you will never see it as long as greed, imbeciles and corruption run the world.
