The United States Geological Survey has increased the Yellowstone supervolcano threat to “high.” This is the first time that the USGS has updated its volcano threat assessments list since 2006.
The USGS said that 11 of the 18 volcanoes they have classified as a “high threat” or a “very high threat” are located in Washington, Oregon, or California, “where explosive and often snow- and ice-covered edifices can project hazards long distances to densely populated and highly developed areas.”
According to the Epoch Times, the danger list is topped by Kilauea in Hawaii, which has been erupting continuously in 2018. Mount St. Helens as well as Mount Rainier in Washington, Alaska’s Redoubt Volcano, and California’s Mount Shasta are also in the top five, according to what the USGS has said.
Although the Yellowstone supervolcano is a “high” threat, it’s only the 21st most dangerous volcano in the United States. According to Forbes, the assessment that Yellowstone supervolcano was only high was not assigned on a whim. While the Yellowstone supervolcano does have the potential for a large eruption, other factors are at play. Such as the fact that it erupts so infrequently, shows no signs of increasing eruption risk today, and is located in a relatively sparsely populated area of the United States which decreases the threat. To be clear, the USGS still ranked the supervolcano as a “high” threat, but it is clearly not the most dangerous volcano in the United States.
Despite the recent gradual uptick in thermal activity in the caldera directly below the supervolcano, the new USGS threat assessment is showing Yellowstone as stable, but dangerous when it does happen to erupt in the future, according to a report by the Missoulan.
The Yellowstone supervolcano is one of the most feared volcanoes on the globe, however, scientists are constantly reminding everyone that the chance of it erupting in a violent and globally devastating fashion is rather small, even though it is said to be “past due” for such an explosion.
PITTSBURGH JEWISH COMMUNITY DEMAND THAT TRUMP DENOUNCE WHITE NATIONALISM
IS NETANYAHU GOING TO DENOUNCE JEWISH NATIONALISM IN ISRAEL THAT WAS JUST CODIFIED INTO LAW???
PITTSBURGH JEWISH COMMUNITY CALLS TRUMP A PURVEYOR OF HATE SPEECH
WILL THE JEWS DENOUNCE THE PART OF THE TALMUD THAT CALLS NON JEWS SOULLESS CATTLE AND SAYS ITS OK TO RAPE BABY GIRLS (LOOK IT UP IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME)
ISRAEL JUST DEPORTED ALL THE BLACKS TO AFRICA. NOT A FUCKING WORD FROM THE MEDIA.
JEWS ARE HYPOCRITICAL, SELF SERVING BASTARDS JUST LIKE ALL NON WHITES
SOCIAL COHESION FOR ME, BUT NOT FOR THEE???
FUCK THE NON WHITES
THEY WANT ACCESS TO THE WHITE MAN’S CIVILIZATION BUT THEY CAN’T STOP CRITICIZING AND INSULTING WHITE MEN???
FUCK EM. THROW THEM THE FUCK OUT. I’M SICK OF THEIR GARBAGE.
Time for your meds Eisen….
Kind of surprises me that eisencrap didn’t turn out to be the shooter of those folks last Saturday. That’s just his style.
Eisen is of course correct. We mourn the death of the Pittsburgh Synagogue members. Average age 74. Were there only old people in the Temple that day? Did the shooter target old people? Have we seen the bodies and the carnage? Have we matched DNA to death certificates? Do we know the shooting victims were not goyim as in the Overland Park shooting? Are the autopsies being performed transparently by disinterested parties? Do we know the deceased were not corpses placed for the staged shooting? No…we don’t know any of those things. And we never will.
My racism (yes, it’s true) is usually in the way of banned cartoons and the ‘soft bigotry of lowered expectations’. I have never particularly lynched anyone, per se, but fully understand the concept.
I would have said there is a white race, with different, ethnic groups, religious, and political beliefs, which are the major source of hypocrisy and victimhood narratives.
The men in my family run rather tall, so do not fit the short guy in a yarmulke comment.
I think, the temperament in my family is higher energy, assholish. Rodney Dangerfield in ‘Natural Born Killers’. I am related to literal world record holders, as well as people who were put to death, depending on how that forceful, voracious mind was channeled.
I have taught college level maths, was awarded presidential honors in the live sciences, and do continue to support civilization in the way of new, intellectual property.
I am an instigator and socially dominant, call vulgar triumphalism exactly what it is. Physical and enjoy it, am not a self hater.
E said, “SOCIAL COHESION FOR ME, BUT NOT FOR THEE???”
Meritocracy, veganism, and enjoying the company of baby deer, for some people, while taking away the legal personhood of other people.
I read that Israel has passed laws that give Israeli Jews legal and national status not accorded to its non-Jewish citizens. They have built walls, barriers, and fences to keep out illegal immigrants, and are deporting thousands and thousands of African immigrants. The PM said he will not allow non-Jewish immigration to change the character of the nation. I have no problem with that. But why do most prominent Jewish politicians, academicians, and business people here in the US openly promote open borders, virtually unlimited illegal immigration, and oppose the construction of “The Wall”, yet condone Israel doing the same; all the while the MSM does not report this hypocrisy.
I have no issues with immigration so long as people come here legally in controlled numbers where they cannot change the nature and culture of our country. They must primarily speak English, not be dependent on state welfare programs, must have an occupation to be an asset to society, and fully assimilate into our society.
I have no bias against any ethnic group, all deserve to live in peace. But why must the developed West be completely accommodationist yet endorse the opposite in the rest of the world. Murder cannot be tolerated, period. Don’t paint me and all whites maniacal rampaging racists for the actions of one person. And don’t expect me to comply with any demands to curtail any of my rights due to this crime, or any other crime
If you read Deuteronomy 28 you may begin to understand many things that seem to be a mystery to you now.
Eisenkreutz.. most of the baby boomers are white people.
Well great. First it was the ozone hole, then it was the melting of the polar ice caps, then plastic straws followed by monetary collapse and the invading hoards. Now we learn the damned place is set to explode. In the immortal words of Lloyd Bridges – “Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.”
They just can’t leave Yellowstone alone.
NASA wants to set off a bomb “to relieve pressure.” More likely to relieve NASA’s pressure to set one of ten (10) of the world’s super volcanos off.
What? Drilling holes in Russian spacecraft just isn’t enough fun any more? Sabotaging Russian rockets and your only ride to into space just doesn’t cut it any more?
And now here comes USGS, obviously having read too much Mac Slavo.
“The Yellowstone super-volcano is one of the most feared volcanoes on the globe.” “Everyone knows “that the chance of [Yellowstone] erupting in a violent and globally devastating fashion is rather small . . . .” So, let’s monger some fear. Shall we?
Here.. wanna hit of my glue? It’s pretty good. Don’t get it on your fingers.
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, this has to be Trump’s fault…..
Ok now but dangerous when erupts. ? This article’s wording has me going crosseyed. If they’re saying such stupidity it’s most likely much worse.
For crist sake, it starts out like the damned thing is about to explode, than at the end it says
“however, scientists are constantly reminding everyone that the chance of it erupting in a violent and globally devastating fashion is rather small, even though it is said to be “past due” for such an explosion.”
Well hell we know that.
I call bull****. The USGS page for Yellowstone lists the danger alert threat as “Normal”. The threat level has not increased at all. There are no more new substantial threats than there were 5 years ago
It is “high” relative to other volcanoes, sure. But, the danger level has not suddenly increased.
Wonder if historically any or all of these volcanoes have erupted in unison or close to it since they are all a part of the PAC Ring of fire.
By, now there’s an idea worth exploring. Quick, somebody call NASA.
Where is officer John McClain when you need him? He would fight the volcano.
Nah, we need Mike Roark to fight a Volcano. Although it would help to have an expert like Dr Amy Barnes to help.
And before anyone thinks I’ve lost my mind…https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120461/
Well, I’m hoping that when it blows, that California, Oregon, & Washington are incinerated.
Then, in the ensuing mega-earthquakes, all three states fracture along their Eastern borders and fall into the Pacific Ocean.
The ensuing mega-tsunami would then rocket Westward and completely obliterate Hawaii.
The “culling” of so many Liberals from the USA would be a HUGE step in the right direction ! ( The 2018 population for those 4 states is 52 million +/- )
