Just saw a story about this... Very interesting, and frightening.... I guess its good they found it, but its just another global risk we all need to
So the way I look at Super Volcanos is that its a built up of pressure, like any volcano, everyone knows this, so what scientists need to do is figure
out a way to release a little pressure at a time (over time) to take away any risk moving forward... I understand that there are a rather large group
of scientists out there who said trying to release pressure could trigger it and set it off, i get that, it makes sense, but I ask... Is it better to
just wait for that fateful day when the super volcano explodes killing us all or is it better to try to fix the issue by releasing the pressure?? I
guess your damned if you do, damned if you don't... Id just prefer to have them do, so I know they are atleast trying.....
For example a 2 liter bottle of soda... if you shake the contents and open the lid it will erupt all over your hands, however if you shake the
contents and very slowly open the lid the pressure inside is released in small amounts preventing the eruption.
I'm waiting for that job offer from USGS any day now....
