Scientists downplay panic as Yellowstone bulges 10 inches


beforeitsnews.com

Yellowstone National Park's supervolcano just took a deep "breath," causing miles of ground to rise dramatically, scientists report.

The simmering volcano has produced major eruptions—each a thousand times more powerful than Mount St. Helens's 1980 eruption—three times in the past 2.1 million years. Yellowstone's caldera, which covers a 25- by 37-mile (40- by 60-kilometer) swath of Wyoming, is an ancient crater formed after the last big blast, some 640,000 years ago

Scientists intially thought this was signs of an imminent eruptions but "retracted" their statements and now say that there's nothing to worry about and move along.

But with the massive animal kill-offs that possibly could be related to a pole shift that would interfere with the magnetic field on Earth; this possibly could cause supervolcanos like Yellowstone to blow. Even Etna is showing increased activity.

Even with the scientific denial; there's no way the feds or state government would give advanced warning of an eruption. The size of Yellowstone would mandate an evacuate of possibly millions within weeks if not days; and could possibly cause riots and crimes across the country as our law enforcement; disaster management and military resources are redirected to the area.

Just something to keep an eye on.

When a super volcano takes a big breath, its time to pay a little more attention,

I'll be watching this thread to see if anything more comes of this.

Some of the threads getting multiple flags are rediculous, What makes it even more rediculous is that yours has none.

This is of interest, or at least a valuable ponder

Keep up the good work

Yellowstone growing, Massive earthquakes around the world, Africa is splitting apart by meters a year... the threads just keep coming.

Maybe those Hopi and Casey believers have something about the future...

I totally agree. If they knew this was real serious sh**, then they would know millions would have to evacuate. And like you said, that would cause major problems. Between everything that has been going on in the last month alone, something is going on. We have great seismic activity, huge animal deaths all over the world, my post today about green/yellow goo in new york that came from the sky. Yet, we are not hearing about any of this at all in the media, pretty ironic.

Im a spiritual person, and have tried to turn away from the 2012 disaster prophecy, but I know anything is possible and with the condition the worlds spirit is right now, I believe bad things have to happen if we as a species and world plan on moving forward in a positive way. Things need to change, people need to change, we need to step back for a moment and really look at where we are.

You know, that is a likely truth that becomes disturbing when one considers just how many possibilities exist when those we elected to serve us, would likely choose to lie to us instead... albeit perhaps, for what they would perceive to be our own good as well as their own.

The bottom line here is that we don't trust our leadership and this kind of thing is exactly why.

I believe this thread has covered this topic earlier this week.

Some interesting replies there as well.

Thanks for the response. I enjoy the more "paranormal" side of ATS but I think that things like Yellowstone--which has happened in the past and will happen again---need to be paid special attention to because an eruption of Yellowstone would pretty much demolish our country---world temps would drop 3-5 degrees, destroying crops, the amount of dead bodies could spread disease, and I believe that almost all of the country would be coated in some level of ash. Yellowstone is a major danger and the US is taking a very big risk in attempting to sweep this under the rug.

Thanks for bringing up 2012. Up until about 5 months ago I was very skeptical (although not ruling it out) in regards to the possible 2012 scenario. With the animal deaths, a much more rapid pole shift than anticipated, strange weather, and now this, I am beginning to be seriously concerned about what could happen in 2012. I will say this:
If 12/21/2012 is the end of the world, we need to be wary that it's very possible that this process is beginning, and that date is just the culmination of all of those actions. I just hope we are both wrong on this. We are entering a very scary time.

S&F from me,

Excellent find OP and I will be keeping an eye on this thread because obviously if this thing goes off then I will literally ruin my underwear and possibly my socks

I've read elsewhere that the wild buffalo (or bison) were escorted by horseback riders and had to travel three miles for them to gaze for grass on Yellowstone. So I guess there's no need to worry here because it doesn't matter, huh.

What worries me is, "Okay, it's ten miles beneath the surface, so what's driving that?"

Which is supported by a statement on National Geographic's website that says: "But once we saw [the magma] was at a depth of ten kilometers, we weren't so concerned. If it had been at depths of two or three kilometers [one or two miles], we'd have been a lot more concerned."

If "Yellowstone's magma reservoir is fed by a plume of hot rock surging upward from Earth's mantle," as stated by scientists in the National Geographic article, then could this "new mantle layer" spark-off additional quakes in regions like New Madrid?

Or is this simply, on the expanded time-line, one of Earth's "growing phases?"

So yellowstone has just bulged.Well that is a bit worrying.I hope that isn'nt a sign that it is about to erupt otherwise we are all in trouble.Yellowstone could erupt in a 1000 years time or could erupt now.So you could imagine what the destruction it would bring it would be a worldwide disaster.Scientists better keep a very close eye on it because if it erupts it could be the difference from saving thousands of life's.Scary stuff

Lol.. retracted so not to cause mass panic. If the super volcano there goes boom, its going to affect more than just the US. Some of the info I have seen from History and Discovery channel call that a game ender. To drive the point home I beleive there was an episode of life after people that dealt with an eruption of yellowstone.

What exactly could Yellowstone do as far as damage from ground zero out.

Anyone want to put up a possible blast radius chart? Ex 0-5 miles..vaporized. 5-20 miles violent winds of 500mph and flying debris. Maybe atmosphere effects etc in the area and US and world as a whole.

I remember reading the last Yellowstone eruption left ash falling as far east as Illinois. That is impressive.
