Some interesting observations from a "Ring of Fire" watcher.

Yellowstone is the place to watch alright, keeping in mind that the Snake River cuts through massive beds of rock laid down during relatively recent times. All of which issued forth from the earth. And it is from within this rock that artifacts have been recovered at some depth while drilling for water.

So the Yellowstone area is not without a history of volcanic activity, which dwarfs most everything we might wish to consider in other parts of the world.

Also, many may not realize that the Northern Shield in Canada resulted from a huge outpouring of volcanic material covering many thousands of square miles.

It is hard to imagine how the occurrence of such an event today would affect the world, but it would change everything in no time at all.

And like they say, if Yellowstone erupts big time it will alter the course of history.

I'm told it will take out everything as far West as Lake Tahoe, and as far South as the Northern End of the Grand Canyon. Plus we'll have a year-long nuclear Winter which will kill off many animals and people who are not otherwise impacted.

How far North would it go, David? Any idea?

I have no real idea.........but the prevailing winds will take it south, south east.

They'll be up to their gazoos in ash and it will leave the soil pretty much void of life for some time.

One way or the other we are all going to feel the effects if this one goes kapoweee. Lets hope its a false alarm.

Right after I posted my former comment the other night, THC had a 20-minute segment on the hazards of Yellowstone. The segment predicts 8 feet of ash within a 500 mile perimeter of the eruption, if it's a full eruption, and YEARS of a nuclear winter for the US, plus decreased sunlight and impacted growing season, world-wide. Not a very encouraging picture...
