Super-volcano has been rising at record rates since 2004, so could it erupt again in our lifetimes?

I hope that it doesn't. It will be catastrophic according to that report 2/3 of the U.S. could become uninhabitable if it does errupt.
I think that if it did erupt like this, life as we know it would cease across the planet
The human race likes to think that it is in control, but we are still relatively powerless against the forces of nature
The Time for Theories ... and Hollywood versions of Possibilities is up ... you can calculate, the Exact Time, and Quantum of the Yellowstone caldera going up in smithereens ... see the Way, shown, elsewhere, in this forum.
Maybe we could convince all the fundies that the rumbling and bubbling noises that will likely precede the bang is their lordy calling them to come to him.
It will eventually erupt one day but no one does not know when it will happen and how much devastation it will cause. It is bulging like other volcanoes have done in past before they erupt and when the telltale signs begin to increase in frequency we will probably have plenty of time to evacuate the region. Scientist already said the devastation will probably be confined mostly in the yellowstone region but the world will experience some effect from the eruption when it happen.
It looks like it is getting ready to erupt and when it does it will kill everyone in the west of the U.S almost immediately. Then it will cover the whole atmosphere in ash for 3 to 4 years blocking out the sun.
90% of the population of Earth will perish.
Many countries have already built deep underground shelters which can hold millions of people. They have already stockpiled grain for such a catastrophe.
I read a very interesting article by a scientist about a planet called Nibiru which is due to fly by in 2012 as part of it's 3,600 year orbit through our solar system. It is 4-5 times the size of Earth and aparantly it's gravitational pull may set off many volcanos here including Yellowstone.
The U.S, Europe and Japanese space agencys all have infra-red telescopes pointed at it but they are keeping it a secret, obviously.
I hope what I read is wrong, I really do. But I can tell you now, I'm starting to stock up on tins just in case.
Did you know the poles are about to shift too?
Did you know our solar system is going to pass through the plane of our galaxy in 2012 also?
Good luck human kind!
Well so much for Global Warming or Lex Luthor's plans for the Nevada coast line.
The mayan calender just wasnt finished. The mayans were killed when they were writing down dec. 21 2012.
I don't think stockpiling food and digging a hole to live in for 4 years is a good answer. If that's my lot, I'd rather be taken out in the first round, quickly.
Further, I don't subscribe much to doomsday anything. Sure there are changes in the earth and solar system. It's been happening for billions of years. But what's the point in living the rest of your life in fear that something catastrophic will happen, or that God will come back and hate you because you lived a horrible life, or anything else like these things.
If you're not living a good life now, it's probably past time to start doing something about it. But that shouldn't stop anyone from doing something good for themselves and others, regardless of how long you have before your bout with cancer, heart attack, floods, or anything else that kills us.
I had a wonderful friend who lived a marvelous life.
But he died anyway.
And so it is for all.
All I'm going to say now is this.
Keep an eye on the volcanos, if there are suddenly lots of eruptions in the next 12 months start digging and stock piling long life food. The governments only have shelter for 10% of the population.
It would definitely be a life changer, especially in the Western Hemisphere.
...now Sarah Palin's name can be added to the scapegoat list...as well. Al Gore can just sit around and say..."I told you so!"
Al Gore first it was the ice age coming, then global warming, then climate change. How a bunch of leftidiots follows that money-hungry loser is a mystery to me. But he's getting rich on all of it so he really is smart after all.
I love how everything can be explained by "Global Warming"...in due course. We have a drought: Global Warming. We are buried up to our necks in Snow: Global Warming. We are having a mild Spring: Global Warming. I don't feel good: Global Warming. I lost my dog: Global Warming. The fish aren't biting: Global Warming.
Just another thought:
If Yellowstone blows, the Rapture might be turned to the Rupture.
LOL! Hellfire brought to earth even! I was always under the impression that the main event and fun for those who believe in the rapture was the chance of watching those left behind on earth (eg me!)being heckled by 12 plagues and the odd nuclear war. What a disappointment if the super volcano turns out to be a non-discriminatory affair and that we all get tickets to the show and devastation regardless of our religious beliefs
I recently read an article in National Geographic about the volcano and it's cyclical rising. It takes 'breaths' which cause a natural inflation and then a gradual deflation.
The article is very recent, just a couple of weeks ago.

as far as living underground, no thanks, unless there are some really great looking, friendly hobbits who can take me to middle earth.
"Could the Yellowstone Super-Volcano Be Getting Ready to Erupt?"
Why not? All the other ones are.
What's the point in doing all the things I'm doing right now if we're going to be anihilated in less than two years. I may as well stop caring about my health, get myself a huge, huge bank loan, and have a fantastic time until it all ends.
On the other hand, where will that leave me if Yellowstone doesn't errupt after all?
Isn't life all about the balance between preparing for tomorrow and living for today? Volcano, war or being run over by a bus - none of us know what tomorrow will bring. May as well pour me another glass of wine then!
