You always think of the worse, but the worse never happens.
And I think you draw a fair conclusion, however, Yellowstone is overdue for a catastrophic eruption that would demolish our way of life, and in that
sense I think we need to pay special attention to it.
Here's some linkage to back that up:
Three super-eruptions at Yellowstone appear to have occurred on a 600,000-700,000 year cycle starting 2.1 million years ago. The most recent took
place 640,000 years ago – suggesting Yellowstone is overdue for an eruption.
The bottom line is we need to be aware and awake in regards to the threat that Yellowstone poses. It may not go off during our lifetime; but if it
does; how would you feel if you were the one that was "whistling past the graveyard"?
