Only regulations on The Creator will save us.
The eruption of a “supervolcano” underneath Yellowstone National Park would be like nothing humanity has ever seen, according to an op-ed from The New York Times. There are 20 supervolcanoes on Earth that represent that greatest natural threat to human life, writes ‘End Times‘ author Bryan Walsh.
The Yellowstone supervolcano is an eight out of eight on the Volcanic Explosivity Index but has only erupted three times in the last 2.1 million years. The last eruption was 640,000 years ago. According to author Walsh, “we know that these three eruptions were devastating because they destroyed any record of them having occurred.”
Volcanologists predict an explosion could spread toxic gas all the way to the Midwest, ruining crops and knocking out power, according to Walsh. He adds that a toxic cloud blocking the sun could cause much colder temperatures in the United States for years. The European Science Foundation said it would be ”the greatest catastrophe since the dawn of civilization,” according to Walsh.
Walsh noted that blocking the sun is a good response to the almost-as-bad-threat of Global Warming, he added, “This is just too much in the other direction. Aviation safety gets $7 billion dollars a year; volcano response only gets $22 million. Washington must fix this – and fix it now. Extensive regulations is the only thing that will save us.“
One onlooker at the press conference offered a possible solution – or perhaps it was directed at Walsh – when he said, “Put a cork in it.”
