Unrest growing among world’s supervolcanoes: Santorini in Greece, Uturuncu in Bolivia, the Yellowstone and Long Valley calderas in the U.S., Laguna del Maule in Chile, Campi Flegrei in Italy – almost all of the world’s active supervolcanic systems are now exhibiting some signs of inflation- a potential early indication that an eruption could be building in these volcanic systems for the near future.

November 2, 2013 – GEOLOGY – One of these days, a field of volcanoes you have never heard of will wake up, and if it fulfills its geologic potential, the consequences will be heard around the world. Curiously, Laguna del Maule, situated along the spine of the Andes, doesn’t even look like a volcano. No towering peak, no plume of smoke or steam, no stench of sulfur. But 36 times in the past 20,000 years, volcanic vents surrounding the lake basin have created monster fields of lava

Just 50 kilometers north of Laguna del Maule, a similar volcanic field, called Calabozos, has had three super-eruptions in the past million years, spewing about 1,000 cubic kilometers of ash in total. Those eruptions rank among the largest in a million years. -WF

I did not even know this area (and others) had the potential discussed in the articles.

Also as far as Yellowstone:

The lava pool beneath Yellowstone National Park is more than twice as big as scientists previously believed, that’s according to new research from the Geological Society of America. Scientists from the University of Utah say the lake of molten lava is nearly 50 miles long and 12 miles wide.

They did a pretty good article on some of the large and super volcanos around the world for those who are interested follow the links.

Very interesting data.....theres another along the NK Chinese borderlands that is ready to blow as well......
Could global warming be comming from the inside and not the pollution?
Other planets show signs of internally warming up as well....perhaps the dynamo is electrically driven?

thanks ..finally somebody else is also blaming the temp.rice to the crust temp....
who is monitoring the temps in the crust ?????? guess nobody couse it is an dogma that the earth crust is cooling douwn..
they could be very wrong ! perhaps tru over billions of years... but temp rice in million of years is very well possible..
explains also ice ages and hotter periods

If the article is not hype and all these areas are becoming more active, something is darn sure going on. If a couple (for whatever reason?) decided to blow more or less at the same time that would be a major game changer for everyone and everything; that's for sure..

There have been many articles about increased volcanism these last few years (especially undersea) but I have also seen other articles that basically say, nothing has changed.... Nothing we can do about it either way.. Just interesting...

If the mechanisms ARE electrical in nature we COULD do something about it.

Since the above is true, science would do well to work under the assumption that we live in an electrical universe instead of simply saying, "well, if she blows we're screwed. No way around it."

imho - Climate change is likely multifactorial - no one-single-cause, no one single solution either. Seems we are all one - stuff that happens in our galaxy or even the universe can affect our little planet. Stuff we do can too. I do not understand why "interconnectedness" is such a difficult concept for so many to grasp.

Considering that there is significant evidence that the earth is NOT a heat engine, but rather a stress engine, this possibility makes much sense when you take in to account that we are entering a denser area of the Local Interstellar Medium (which, btw is composed of plasma (an ionized, read electrically charged, gas)).

See the following paper:

An Integrated Alternative Conceptual Framework to Heat Engine Earth, Plate Tectonics, and Elastic Rebound

SonoftheSun has an excellent thread entitled: Is the Local Interstellar Cloud affecting us in any way? about the subject, and he is participating in a research thread that I am lead on that can be found in my signature regarding the possible connections between the Electric Universe and the Expanding Earth theories.

Interesting times to say the least.

I agree the problem is most want a simple answer to everything:

Mount Sinabung in Indonesia has erupted for the third time in as many months, spewing ash over 4 miles into the air and covering nearby villages in gray powder. The volcanic activity began on Sunday and more than 1200 people have been evacuated so far. The volcano surprised scientists in 2010 when it rumbled back to life after being dormant for centuries. Sinabung is one of 120 active volcanoes in the country which is located on the Pacific “Ring of Fire.

A remote Russian volcano may be readying for a new eruption, according to NASA's Earth Observatory. On Nov. 5, NASA's Earth-Observing 1 satellite spotted ash above the 9,702-foot-tall (2,958 meters) Zhupanovksy volcano, which recently woke from a decades-long slumber. The snowy peaks also shows signs of phreatic explosions — the stupendous blasts that result from hot lava meeting snow, ice or water, the Earth Observatory reported.

None are super volcanos but it does seem each week or month there are rather large eruptions happening... Maybe I was not paying attention before?
