This really disturbed me today, and I can't shake it off. I know it's coming, but I still hope it won't happen soon. If this happens it will kill most of the life on Earth. Some due to explosion, poisonous gases and ash, and most of it because of dust that will cover our planet for another 6 years after explosion, blocking sunlight and decreasing temperature for about 20 degrees C (68 F).
After seeing this webpage, I went over news about Yellowstone, and I discovered that it's surface rose a lot in last few years, and number of Earhquakes in Yellowstone in January this year was about 10 times bigger than before.

I've seen the Discovery Documentary on this - yeah, it is kinda scary and there are plenty of other scary scenarios, like asteroid's hitting Earth - No point worrying about it because there's nothing you can do. However, I do keep a large quantity of tin food under the house plus I have a huge water tank :)

The homepage looks an aweful lot like a cult.

There was an article at National Geographic Magazine about this a few months ago. I think they said this activity is normal, although indeed a big eruption is expected. But then also a big volcano in Iceland was expected to erupt after the smaller one, as it has been a pattern before.

These things are just so unpredictable...

If it explode or better definition is implode as I understand best way to you is to back to our homeland before that...
In some scenario expoding or imploding of this Yellowstone wery big and thin ulcer will be like wrapping socks but in earth scale.

I've seen the Discovery documentary as well.
When it comes to asteroids, we can fight back. There are ways to do it safely.
Yellowstone is different. It's a real danger and it will happen.
Our planet is very much alive and it's constantly changing.
It has the real potential to one day kill almost all life (even before the Sun does so).
The 1 million years long Siberian eruption wiped out more than 95 per cent of all life species. It is the largest mass extinction event known to man. It can happen again and there's not much we can do about it. 
This is why it is vitally important that we conquer the skies. To safeguard life, the Earth is not enough. It's too fragile.
And we will.
Given enough time, we will. I'm sure of it, and I'm so terribly upset I won't be around to see it.
I wonder how will humanity look like in the next 10 thousand years? 20 thousand years?
Where will we be?
How will we look like?
We will be beautiful, that's for sure, but will we be happy?
I hope so ...

Life goes in circles, nothing lives for ever. We'll all die one day, so will the planet. We just have to live with the truth and accept the fact.

   If they know about it they wont tell us anyways, because of masshysteria. Those who tries get killed. :-[  Good thing is in the movie, the sky cleared already after a few month...

It happens every 700,000 years or so, right? With something on that timescale it seems that getting worried that it might happen in the next 50 or 100 years, immediately after we've found out about it, shows a lack of statistical understanding. If you want to get frightened by something that really might affect your life, go and read up on global warming.

It will happen, no doubt. They were talking about it when I was over there in 2001 (or 2002?). Like has been said, it's not something I can do anything about, and I doubt if the scientists can either. I try not to lose sleep over it. (Not meant to be as flippant as that sounds)

PRO:
1 - a great cure for global warming
2 - fantastic sunsets by the ashes in the atmosphere
3 - 95% of all microstock photographers are killed - more room for you, more room for me
4 - great photo-op with a good tele - try video too
5 - no plane hijackings since no flights any more - use abandoned planes as props
6 - yellowstone park pictures become priceless on stock

CONTRA:
1 - 95% of all microstock buyers are killed - less sales for you, less sales for me
2 - more sensor dust when changing lenses
3 - "magma chamber explosion" over-abundant category on stock
4 - model girls with headset difficult to find

Don't worry, be happy  ;D

That's nothing. By far the most likely mass killer of human life is via a virus.

Actually, I was watching on news that group of scientists were arrested because of publishing fake data about global warming. It appeared that a small group of scientists provided us with fake data over a period of 20 years till now. They wanted to exaggerate the global warming problem. It seems that Earth is not so overheated at all. Plus, it happened many times before in the Earth history. No one actually knows it it's gonna start to cool down in next 50 years. Volcanic ashes help this phenomenon too.
It also says that dust from volcanic eruptions puts much much more garbage in the atmosphere than man kind did in it's history.

Yup.

I don't know what news dreamframer watches, though.

I don't think Dreamframer worries about us.
I don't.
Yellowstone is not going to strike tomorrow, but this is not about tomorrow, or us.  
This is about humanity, this is about life in general. All life.

The Earth will die, (absolutely, yes) so will the Sun, (no doubts about it), and unfortunately so will the entire Universe.
Don't worry about it, death is only natural.
But so is our need to fight back.  
It's right there, written in our genes, to stand up and find a solution.
Given enough time, one million years from now on, we will.
And it will happen because of people like Dreamframer.
People who look up at the skies, wonder, worry and ask questions.
They will find a way.

Our local governmental geologist got into a jam a couple of years ago:
I live in an area prone to rockslides, and large masses of rocks sliding into water has caused several local tsunamis, but it has been a long time since the last one. (~100 years). So the local newspaper interviewed the local geologist; "Will there be a new major rockslide anytime soon?". And he answered truthfully: "Yes, I expect it to happen very soon" and listed a couple of localities that are high on the risk map. The next day the newspaper had to publish an update. For some reason, the hysteric masses got the impression that it would happen tomorrow, they didn't consider that "very soon" in geology means "within the next 50 000 years".

Hahaha Gaja,
let me tell you another one.
It's famous, so there's a chance you know it already.

A few years back Stephen Hawking was invited to Japan. To talk about his theories, about the Universe in general. He was also strongly advised to avoid mentioning anything about the death of the Universe.
That's just in case it might upset the Japanese stock markets!
Hahahaha!

Another good one: An astronomer described the end of the solar system to a gathering somewhere. At the end of his talk a woman asked: "Did you say this happens in six million years or in six billion?"
He replied "Six billion".
She said "Oh, thank goodness!" and sat down with visible relief.
I guess she wasn't a born-again Christian!

Hahahaha Baldrick!
I almos spilled my tea here :)
It is sooo much better to hear 6 billion instead of 6 million :)
Hahahaah!

Well as long as the politicians can keep us focused on this kind of nonsense they can do whatever they want.
