Title: This is not the end
Post by: JimP on February 21, 2018, 21:07
More than a third of Yellowstone National Park sits within the caldera of an active volcano. A supervolcano is exactly what it sounds likeóa massive volcano that is capable of erupting with devastating global consequences.  https://www.inverse.com/article/33937-no-the-yellowstone-lava-geyser-isn-t-erupting-right-now (https://www.inverse.com/article/33937-no-the-yellowstone-lava-geyser-isn-t-erupting-right-now) Not erupting right now it was false news.

The supervolcano is erupting right now.

How come it's not on the news then?

YELLOWSTONE VOLCANO (VNUM #325010)
44į25'48" N 110į40'12" W, Summit Elevation 9203 ft (2805 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN

Although, of course, the fake news brigade will insist the scientists are lying as part of a conspiracy.

Incidentally, the hoax warning dates back to last July, which just goes to show that old hoaxes never die, they scarcely even fade away.

There was some news 6-8 months ago that there was some kind of seismic activity there.  Then, the story came out about the geological make up of Yellowstone (i.e. big volcano).  Everyone ran with that and it has festered into doom and gloom ever since, when in fact it's same ol same ol. So you are correct.

I did see a documentary a while ago that said an eruption was "overdue" and the results could be pretty serious.

The Discovery Channel and the British tabloids love running end-of-the-world stories. Asteroid impact..... Yellowstone and various other "Supervolcanoes" (they've just produced one off Japan), plagues, earthquakes, ice ages, deadly solar flares, geomagnetic reversals ....

The one thing the British tabloids don't produce as an end-of-the-world story is global warming, which really is going to screw us or our children or grandchildren (depending how old you are ... by 2100 things will be in a real mess, but I won't be around to see it).

No wonder, JimP! This explains a lot!

It explains why the surviving kids of the recent Florida shooting are hired actors.
It explains why Sandy Hook massacre is a hoax created by Obama, to take away our guns.
It explains why the basement of a pizzeria without basement is a child trafficking headquarter, coordinated by crooked Hillary who is also involved in satanic rituals.

It explains why Trump is our president and it shows that we still have 30-40% of the population falling for such "InfoWars"

PBS Nova, North America has been sliding across a fiery mass of magma for millions of years. Itís triggered some of the most violent eruptions and most devastating extinctions the continent has ever experienced. And now itís parked beneath Yellowstone National Park where itís just a matter of time before it detonates again. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/magma-yellowstone.html (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/magma-yellowstone.html) I suppose you blame trump and the republicans for this to.

 It's there, all right, and one day it will probably erupt (though sometimes volcanoes go inactive) but that may be tens of or hundreds of thousands of years in the future so its not something to worry about overmuch. In any case, the experts there say there would be a lengthy warning period before it went off -- not that being forewarned would be much help.

Well... breaking news: the geography of Yellowstone is common knowledge. And it should be the case especially for us, photographers, since it is one of the most scenic parks in the US.  :P

But it seems that "some"  ;) only discovered these facts recently, from tabloids or conspiracy sites, instead of high school classes or some book/article based on science.

Obviously, the volcano has nothing to do with Trump, but the gullibility of "some"  ;) people, unable to tell the difference between a hoax and reality, has a lot to do with the way he got elected.

You're right the liberals. You blamed the conservatives for this, now you're backing up and changing. Of course everything that's wrong is the conservatives and when the liberals doom and gloom us, it's juts nature. You'll never admit that the worst negative doom people are the liberals.

Selling death and destruction is standard behaviour for US and other Western governments of all political colours - the Liberals throw in hand-wringing while signing off the missiles, warplanes and guns, which is a bit sickening (OMG! They're using those bombs we sold them in a war! We can't believe it, how awful, that might be against the terms of the sale.)

Or do you mean Liberals use death and destruction to fear-monger for political ends? Getting votes by frightening people with the bogeyman of foreigners coming over the border to fill their kids up with drugs, rape their daughters, steal their wealth and force everyone to speak Spanish? I do remember some politician doing that.

Ah lets not just keep bashing the West.

The Russian made AK47 (and its Chinese copies) have killed more people than any other weapons system since the end of WWII.

Most developing nations are equipped with Russian and Chinese built weapons, tanks and planes.

And those countries are hardly bastions of liberalism are they

First of all I'm not a liberal. Not everybody disagreeing with Trump is a liberal, you know?
 
Second, I'm not blaming conservatives. There are many intelligent conservatives out there.
 
I'm simply blaming those gullible people unable to use their own judgement, people falling for viral hoaxes like yours and those enumerated above.

Unfortunately, it looks to me that you belong in this category. Even more: you dig deeper.
And this explains a lot.
It explains a lot your prior positions. And like you there are many others.
If more people would be able to use their own judgement, such hoaxes would never become viral, and a moron would never stand a chance to become president.

Stop digging my friend.

Look, everybody is free to say whatever they want. First amendment. Even the Russians who are buying political ads on Facebook. I have no problem with that!
The problem we have is with those falling for all these "news". We have even a bigger problem with those contributing to the propagation of these so called "news".

You are the one who "informed" us that "this is the end" and "The supervolcano is erupting right now."  :o This is obviously false.
You must admit you were wrong, instead of pointing fingers to those who misinformed you. Because you also tried to misinform us. You are responsible for your post, not PBS, not National Geographic.

I'm only advising you to do some homework before jumping the gun by contributing to the misinformation. In cases like this one, as much as in other cases you defended on this forum.

Point well made, some other unreliable site will blow the swarms into something they are not. The usual internet click bait with misleading headlines.
