Eventually one of these massive beasts is going to go off. Uh oh, and just as I said that, now I am getting some activity at Yellowstone cranking up....

.... Phew... Ok, she's quieted down again. But that swarm is coming. YS has been fidgeting for while now, off and on.

Flegrei on the other hand....

I've had this feeling for a while now that something very bad is coming. I can't put my finger on it.

Yellowstone is another unstable crack waiting to blow.

There's more of an unease that many are feeling for sure. Like the calm before the sh't storm, and when people least expect it.

And the Storm Is Coming, Guaranteed.

I too feel a sense of unease.

The last time I felt this way, was right before a major health crisis struck my mother and plunged both our lives into a long period of darkness (but also change, and growth for the better in my opinion.) It built up for months, finally involved some weird occurrences in my friends' lives as well as if life was screaming at us to take note of something, and then culminated in a horrible nightmare that essentially said, if we weren't both careful and absolutely committed to helping one another, we'd both suffer horribly or even die. And then she got sick, and we both definitely had to rely on one another in ways we never imagined and had we faltered, one or both of us would certainly have been in a very very bad way.

Other times when I've felt this way though, to be skeptical, were products of my own anxiety disorder, and were cleared up simply with exercise, meditation, etc. Occupying the mind, keeping busy.

This time is more like that time, though. It's resistant to my rational attempts to dismiss it, or to quell it with activity (or even medication.) It isn't anxiety, it's just this background "buzz" and sense of, "something is not right, and I can't see what it is."

And it's just as dogged, and steadily increasing, and there is definitely a sense of something unseen beneath the surface that no one sees coming, and will figuratively or literally erupt when least expected. But again, that could be 1) nothing, just my own issues manifesting (always has to be the first consideration,) 2) figurative, meaning some sort of geopolitical or other upheaval no one sees coming, OR 3) more literal.

So... add my tiny and largely irrelevant two cents as a drop to that bucket of unease, along with a massive pinch of salt given that this is ATS and such sentiments usually mean nothing lol.

Peace.

The planet is just doing its normal thing and people call out end of days. Its funny times to live in for sure.

Everybody wants to be the guy who called the disaster, like in all the other past doomsdays which have come and gone.

"I feel it, on this day, its going to happen.", what a useless effort.

# is gonna happen, no doubt about it.

No use trying to play the oracle.

But reporting happenings and events, that's useful..

Devils advocate , sometimes when the planet "does its thing" it destroys areas, decimates regions, causes major weather changes (ie volcanic winters that lead to mass die offs) and other wise wreaks havok

It's better to keep a weary eye than pretend we're invincible to Mother Nature

If something like Campi goes off to its potential, for many "End of Days" is an accurate description.

Aside from the initial blast, the after-effects from the ash and gas release will cause widespread climate disruptions for several years. Once upon a time, cultures planned for these events by storing food against a bad harvest or two, but these days, our governments in the modern world all think there couldn't possibly be an event that would seriously disrupt the globe's food production enough to keep wealthy nations from feeding their own.

As a consequence, food storage is a bad joke in most countries and almost everyone lives in a place that has maybe a three day supply of ready food on the shelves.

Anything to break up the political noise around here. Ahhhh Volcano's. I used to have nightmares of them at the age of 5. I was sure our foothills were volcano's. Never been to a Volcano..... but I have been to the La Brea tar pits in LA. at the age of 6.

Naples supervolcano is now being talked about on Reddit. I found this discussion on the front page Reddit discussion

They link to this national geographic article, dated Dec. 22

Which is the day this thread started. I don't remember if the article was linked in the opening post.

Reddit talking about this has caught my attention. Reddit isn't ATS or a scientific site, that caters to a certain mindset/demographic.
Reddit is for the general public.

We also know (thanks to the election) Reddit is a site that has controlled information.

The media is allowing commoners to talk about end of the world scenario, without trying to write counter articles to calm fears.

Does this mean Naples is really in trouble? Or are they trying to condition the average person to become numb to disasters, similar to mass shootings and terror attacks?

there is definitely a campaign against fake news, im guessing they are wanting people to come up with all sorts of crazy shhh to see if theres a bite, then they will come out and say fake news this fake news that, we need to control it. The next thing you know the internet is filtered and only the info "they" want will get out, then the propaganda machine will be in overdrive, with "nothing" to challenge the real FAKE news we have been conditioned to our whole life.

Not really. I've been watching their webicorders- at least, the ones they show online- and for now things seem quiet.

What I do have to report though is that, as you who are following this thread know, I have been trying pretty damn hard to get raw data access so I can get spectro up on my rig of this thing. Well, some bad, and final, news: the one source that was down that I had mentioned previously has come back up. And while it gives me access to some stations in Italy, I STILL can't get anywhere close to Flegrei.

I emailed the volcanologist that one member suggested, and that was a week ago. Still, nothing. This just ain't going to happen folks. We are at the pure mercy of a bone-headed agency that put its observatory right in the middle of the stinking caldera.

So if it blows fast and big, there will be nothing. Just the aftermath. People on the perimeter getting up, dusting off, choking on ash, wondering WTF just happened. Then outlying reports will start to come in. And once it is known that a super volcano has gone off big, there will be mayhem. So good luck peoples. Better pray this thing doesn't blow in our lifetimes.

I tried. And that's all I can do.

Thanks T A. Very frustrating for you as a researcher.
I have family in Italy and friends in Naples so can ask if they know anything or can find a way to get more info.

Honestly, I imagine this is going to be a waiting game right up until it isn't. Even in places where the volcano is very publically monitored, you end up waiting days sometimes between significant developments with only a sense of tension ramping up until the actual eruption is right on top of you and then it all happens in a few hours or so.

At least that's how it seems with volcanoes.

I remember watching a Mt St Helens documentary (obviously a far less dangerous volcano, but one of the most prominent in the public imagination and memory nonetheless,) and people kept going about their business despite dire warnings by the experts in the days and weeks leading up to that bigger eruption that laterally ejected the side of the mountain at everything in its path.

People kept insisting there was no danger, and the authorities were "just doing it to cause problems." One man refused to leave his lifelong home and business in the shadow of the volcano. He was among those who perished, sadly.

Everyone calls people alarmists - which I try very hard not to be and always take everything with a huge grain of salt and skepticism - until something actually happens. Then it's too late.

Peace.

Yeah well I'd rather be a living alarmist than a dead skeptic. But that's just me.
