National Geographic's Guide To The Yellowstone Supervolcano

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-08/ready-blow-national-geographics-guide-yellowstone-supervolcano

Amid a growing 'swarm' of over earthquakes (now over 1000), and Montana's largest quake ever, scientists are growing increasingly concerned that the so-called 'super-volcano' at the heart of Yellowstone National Park could be building towards a Category 7 eruption. So what is a 'super-volcano' and what does its explosion mean for life on earth? NatGeo explains...


Think of Yellowstone as a gigantic pressure cooker, fueled by a massive supervolcano. Water from rain and snowmelt, much of it centuries-old, percolates through cracks in the Earth’s crust until heated by molten rock reservoirs deep below. The water then filters upward, eventually finding release in the thousands of geysers, hot springs, and other hydrothermal wonders.

Eruptions of this supervolcano expel so much material that the crust caves in, creating a craterlike depression called a caldera.

Yellowstone is known as a supervolcano because of the violence and size of its explosions.!!

Hundreds of cubic miles of ash, rock and lava would be blasted into the atmosphere, and this would likely plunge much of the northern hemisphere into several days of complete darkness. Virtually everything within 100 miles of Yellowstone would be immediately killed, but a much more cruel fate would befall those living in major cities outside of the immediate blast zone such as Salt Lake City and Denver.

In other words, it would be the end of our country as we know it today.

The rest of the planet, and this would especially be true for the northern hemisphere, would experience what is known as a “nuclear winter”. An extreme period of “global cooling” would take place, and temperatures around the world would fall by up to 20 degrees. Crops would fail all over the planet, and severe famine would sweep the globe.

Max, It makes this old Disney flick seem so naive! :)

According to Major Ed Dames the last "precursor event" before the KillShot sequence starts is the use of a nuclear device by North Korea... looks like we are getting real close ..

Mysterious North Korean Calendar Counts Down To Sunday, August 27th In Latest Nuclear War Threat Video.
http://allnewspipeline.com/North_Korea_Countdown_Clock_Calendar.php

Has North Korea sent a message to their people of impending nuclear war? First, the video is directly below with much more below it on the unfolding situation in North Korea and the latest bizarre episode involving a US Navy ship that has led to China claiming the US Navy is a 'hazard' to shipping in the region. The 'countdown calendar' in this obvious NKorean military propaganda video appears at the 3 minute 37 second mark. A secret message to the people of North Korea and others paying attention? 

While the 'countdown calendar' seen above may be absolutely nothing, as the LA Times reports, US military drills that recently kicked off on the Korean peninsula with ally South Korea once again have Kim Jong Un and North Korea on edge and as we read in this new story over at the Express, for the umpteenth time, NKorea has warned the USA to prepare for “uncontrollable nuclear war” and a “merciless strike” as the crisis on the peninsula reaches fever pitch.

As we hear in the next video below, NKorea is now claiming they are ready to strike unless the US starts acting sensibly.

MadMax, I am also keeping one eye on that situation. So much is beyond our control in any way...
let's hope there is a kernel of sanity in the fearless leaders' minds.

Stephen Hawking: Earth Will Become A Flaming Ball Of Fire By 2600!!

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-07/stephen-hawking-earth-will-become-flaming-ball-fire-2600

He also warns that if humans want to avoid permanent extinction, we should be making plans to evacuate the earth.

Hawking claims that mankind will destroy the earth making it a fireball within the next 600 years. The renowned physicist believes soaring population sizes and consequential increasing demands for energy and food will lead to the catastrophe. Hawking also says that humanity should begin looking to the stars to avoid this fate, with our nearest neighbor Alpha Centauri the best candidate for our escape. Hawking also urged financial backers to put funds behind a project that would send probes to the star system.

The Alpha Centauri system is the closest star system to our sun and consists of three stars. Of those three stars, Proxima is the closest to our sun. At a mere 4.367 light years away, on our sky’s dome, we see this multiple star system as a single star – the third-brightest star visible from Earth. And it’s this system that Hawking has his eye on.

If humans can't take any better care of a planet than they've done here on our beautiful Earth, they/we don't deserve to metastasize to the stars.   Sorry Hawking, you're a bit too starry-eyed.  Pun intended.
