New Theories Claim Yellowstone Supervolcano Could Erupt Sooner Rather Than Later
A group of scientists believe that we are in what they describe as a "volcano season". They have theories that this could mean that the Yellowstone Supervolcano will erupt sooner than we may have previously thought. They are not alone in this belief.
The Inquisitr published their report which could mean big trouble for anyone living near Yellowstone.
In the report, entitled “Extreme Geohazards: Reducing the Disaster Risk and Increasing Resilience,” experts predict a supervolcano eruption with the ability to kill millions has a five to 10 percent chance of happening within the next 70 to 80 years. Such an event would make it difficult for a global society to adapt and remain sustainable.
Researchers are particularly worried about active volcanoes in Yellowstone National Park in the United States.
The International Business Times also shared this report including estimations on what the damage would be like if the Yellowstone Supervolcano actually did erupt.
If you're not already freaked out enough, RYOT added more details of what life - or the lack of life - would be like if Yellowstone blows.
