Daily Mail UK is warning of volcanic activity at the world’s largest “supervolcano” at Yellowstone caldera.   Having not erupted in 600,000 years, Vulcan is pissed.

The super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004

“Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.

Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.”

As they say… fuck that shit.

It’s worse still, as the floor of the volcano has been rising 3 inches per year, as pressure shoots upward from Hades and the lava core beneath.

I repeat: fuck that shit.  I won’t be sightseeing in Wyoming any time soon.

There is an upside.  The global warming thing would be mitigated for a couple of years.  Yay.
