It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980.
Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.
Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.

I've just been comparing the last time a pole reversal happened and the last time Yellostone blew. seems the last reversal happened 700,000 years ago and the last Yellowstone super eruption happened 640,000 years ago. A big difference, but there does seem to be a margin of error in both dates..
I wonder if there is a link?

Life is temporal and precarious at best, and as such many people are always looking for or at something that they imagine might bring about a doomsday.
Yet it should also be noted two very important aspects that morph out of this that is evidenced in history again and again. The more a population is prone to believe a 'realistic doomsday' scenario can and will happen, the more tyranical and harsh it's government regime is. Two that many religions including today's most popular ones all feature doomsday prophecies.
While the earth is millions of years old, few people live more than a hundred years. So when your time is up, your time is up. You were after all going to die anyway!
So cheer up, and buck up, and make this summer that once in a life time journey to Yellowstone!

I realize Yellowstone gets mentioned every once in a while and the MSM talks about 'dooms-day' so.......I think this is in an attempt of getting us numb.
If they mention potentially dangerous situations often enough, we're going to get immune to it which, is already happening.
The super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004
They said that the super-volcano underneath the Wyoming park has been rising at a record rate since 2004 - its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years alone, the fastest rate since records began in 1923.
The rate slowed between 2007 and 2010 to a centimeter a year or less. Still, since the start of the swelling, ground levels over the volcano have been raised by as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) in places. (source)
Okay fine. Maybe that's true but I think we're all in agreement, MSM is playing this up a LOT lately.
