Deep-Mantle Plume Fuels the Yellowstone Supervolcano

New images prove that the Yellowstone hotspot is powered by superheated magma rising up from Earth’s core. The last Yellowstone supereruption occurred roughly 640,000 years ago, creating the massive, 40-mile wide Yellowstone caldera and producing an umbrella-shaped ash cloud that blanketed areas as far away as modern-day New York with several millimeters of ash. The prospect of another cataclysmic supereruption has sent scientists on a decades-long search for the source of Yellowstone’s devastating power.” (more)

Yellowstone supervolcano is showing signs of STRAIN

The Daily Mail [UK] – Yellowstone supervolcano is showing signs of STRAIN: Experts measure subtle changes caused by magma deep beneath the surface

  • Scientists based in Colorado can measure the strain put on volcanoes in the US
  • They detected molten rock beneath the surface of Yellowstone National Park
  • Their discovery is not dangerous, and technologies allow them to track it closely
  • The researchers analyze the effects of slight environmental shifts on volcanoes

2015 article – Threats to Electric Power Grid Could Result in “Black Sky Days”

“The societal impact of a “Black Sky Day”—a term used by electric infrastructure security experts when discussing a collapse of the North American power grid—would be devastating, according to Dr. Daniel Baker, distinguished professor of Planetary and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder.”

Opinion:It looks like these electric infrastructure security “experts” created a new threat to talk about, hold conferences about and extort money from billionaire energy bosses with. Just like FEMA was useless after Katrina, if there ever is some EMP attack these guys will be…
