So NASA has plans to drill into YELLOWSTONE SUPER VOLCANO for Geo thermal energy but it'll be really " Competitive -aka CHEAP" LOL HEARD THAT BEFORE!!

Brian Wilcox of the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab: Wilcox also remarked that the drilling project must be handled with utmost care as a slightest mistake might actually trigger the eruption the scientists are trying to prevent.

a powerful supervolcano eruption might trigger a “prolonged volcanic winter”, with the resulting crop failure putting mankind on the brink of starvation as “food reserves worldwide would last 74 days”,

So this is how they plan population reduction- following the Georgia Guide stones requirements?

Just take a good look at the EQ's in the mid west recently 10-20 years worth analysis or even more - see the recent increase around all the fracking sites??
These greedy bastards know no bounds, no regard for the environment! You don't mess with a super volcano period end of story!! The RISK Well out weighs the potential reward.....IDIOTS there's Global risk here as well not just the USA...

HOW DO WE STOP THESE IDIOTS FROM BLOWING UP OUR WORLD just look at What happened in FL at Deep Water Horizon Drilling platform ?

I love me some good doom porn in the morning. Bring it, it's about time to reset the simulation anyway.

Gives new meaning to "Poke it with a stick".
Never seems to go well for the poker.

Well if it works, awesome. If it doesn't then woohoo - freepass on global warming for next few hundred years!

I think I'll get one of those coal-rolling smoke blowing 4x4's with a bumper sticker that reads "Blame it on the Cano"

(but as far as I understand geothermal power is quite widely used and successful in Iceland, but not all eggs are created round.)

They can't even run a pipeline without an eruption.

Drilling 10 km into a volcano sounds like a horribly bad idea.

Or the plot of the next Michael Bey movie.

There's a possibility of the massive ELE eruption, but the gummint is gonna intervene and fix it.

YAY! I feel better already.

Super Volcano? We're with the Federal Government and we're here to help! [BP drilling rig trucks seen mobilizing in the background]

This was shared July and August 2017.

Thread on it - www.abovetopsecret.com...

One article reply from then saying:

No, NASA Isn’t Going to Drill to Stop Yellowstone from Erupting


Let’s cut to the chase: The purported NASA plan to “defuse” Yellowstone is pure science fiction.

OK, now that we have that out of the way, let’s get into the details of the numerous articles that have jumped all over what might best be termed a “thought experiment” by scientists at NASA. Yellowstone, the massive caldera in the middle of North America, is definitely a volcanic threat. Is it a high volcanic threat? Not as much as other, much more active volcanoes in the United States. However, it has produced some really massive eruptions in its history—well, three times in its history dating back to ~2.1 million years ago.

whatt do you expect - from people who get thier " science news " from zero-hedge ???

I don't think you 7ndetstand its not a case of if it will erupt its a matter if when. It could happen tomorrow and it could be an event which could end our species. If we can siphon off enough heat to prevent an explosion you have two benefits. We get energy and don't have our sun blocked out for 3 years.

The odds of a drill causing an eruption is silly. Yes there is probably a chance if a couple of billion to one. But if it did cause it i assure you it was within hours of occurring anyway.

It is rather a large area for drills to actually do anything.

Damn they got me good!! lol i really thought it was recent and since it was the first time i saw this asinine "plan" it blew my mind HAHAHA they got me good

Ever stuck a needle in a big zit?

Yellowstone is underlain by two magma bodies.

The shallower one is composed of rhyolite (a high-silica rock type) and stretches from 5 km to about 17 km beneath the surface and is about 90 km long and about 40 km wide.

The chamber is mostly solid, with only about 5-15% melt. The deeper reservoir is composed of basalt (a low-silica rick type) and extends from 20 km to 50 km beneath the surface.

Even though the deeper chamber is about 4.5 times larger than the shallow chamber, it contains only about 2% melt.

Linkywink here : www.usgs.gov...-

David Mencin and Glen Mattioli, geodesists with UNAVCO, say “the strain signal is larger than would be expected if the crust under Yellowstone were completely solid”.

That is one big puss splatter if that thing is popped manually!

Yeah...

We're getting good at that technology but not that good, 10km and practical is a pipe dream.

If your going around poking 10km holes in the ground you could extract energy from pretty much anywhere on the planet.

The mines in south Africa produce almost enough heat and they're on some of the thickest crust on earth... The ocean bed would be best though.

Hey. Look on the bright side. If you're an environmentalist, you're basically a self-hating misanthrope who has deluded yourself into believing you're trying to preserve the environment for humans.

So, if they # up and trigger an eruption that gets rid of the vast majority of humans, they'd be actually doing the environment a huge favor in the long run. Everything would eventually recover.

Indeed just look at the Kola SuperDeep Borehole, only 9” in diameter at the bottom and a bore dept of 12.2km only catch is it took 24 years to reach that depth and that’s just the borehole for science no practical application. The challenger deep in the marianas trench is 11km or so below sea level. I don’t see this being possible anytime soon.

Not every environmentalists fits an extreme mold. If they were to believe that such a disaster would be better for mankind let alone the environment, they have another thing coming.
