On Sunday, the worst earthquake in about 30 years rattled the Yellowstone supervolcano. Overall, there have been at least 25 significant earthquakes at Yellowstone National Park since Thursday, but it is the 4.8 earthquake that has many observers extremely worried. Could such a large earthquake be a sign that the Yellowstone supervolcano is starting to roar to life after all this time? And if it does erupt, what would that mean for the rest of the country? As you will see below, a full-blown eruption at Yellowstone would be absolutely catastrophic. It is estimated that such an eruption could dump a 10 foot deep layer of volcanic ash up to 1,000 miles away and render much of the nation uninhabitable for years to come. In essence, it would instantly bring the United States to its knees.
It is true that it is normal for Yellowstone to experience up to 3,000 earthquakes a year. But most of those earthquakes are extremely small (Read More...)
Have you noticed that this December is unusually cold so far? Could the fact that we have had a record number of volcanoes erupt in 2013 be responsible? Certainly an unusually calm solar cycle is playing a significant role in producing all of this cold weather, but as you will see below the truth is that throughout human history volcanic eruptions have produced some of the coldest winters ever recorded. In fact, there have been some major eruptions that have actually substantially reduced global temperatures for two to three years. So should we be alarmed that the number of volcano eruptions this year was the highest ever recorded? Could it be possible that we are heading for a period of global cooling as a result? And if the planet does cool significantly, could that lead to widespread crop failures and mass famine? Don’t think that it can’t happen. In fact, it has happened before and it is only a matter of time until it happens (Read More...)
Has there ever been such a negative reaction to the results of a presidential election in modern American history? Yes, those that supported Barack Obama are celebrating greatly right now, but the other half of the country is really freaking out. Over the past 48 hours there has been a very powerful outpouring of emotion that has included a strange mix of mourning, anguish, frustration, grief, despair, panic and fear. Yes, the more conservative half of the country was disappointed after Bill Clinton’s two victories, and they were certainly not pleased with what happened in 2008, but those were viewed as temporary setbacks. What happened on Tuesday night is being viewed as something else entirely. Shocked conservatives are describing the election results as “catastrophic” and many believe that there is no hope that America will ever be turned around again. The reality that we are about to (Read More...)
