Warning signs that Yellowstone may Erupt
Joe For America ^ | on Feb 27, 2014 | Joe For America

Some worrying developments are taking place at the Super Volcano located beneath Yellowstone National Park; the kind of developments that were seen shortly before other volcanoes erupted. Not only was there a sudden rise in the elevation of the ground, and development of new cracks, but a gas called Helium-4, a very rare type of Helium, has begun coming out of the surface. It is the presence of this gas that has scientists quite concerned. If the Yellowstone Super Volcano were to erupt, it would be 2,000 times bigger than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in the 1980′s. Everything within 500 miles would be dead or destroyed within minutes, 2/3rds of the entire United States would be covered in volcanic ash and the climate of the entire planet would cool within a month. On top of that, just this past week, the largest earthquake in the US took place just a few miles from Yellowstone proving hot magma is on the move. Here’s what has scientists concerned:

Since late summer 2013, the Yellowstone GPS network has tracked a small ” ground deformation episode” in north-central Yellowstone National Park.

During the past five months, the NRWY GPS station has recorded about 3.5 cm (1.4 in) of uplift (the ground is rising) and about 1 cm (0.4 in) of southeastward ground movement, relative to a stable reference station north of the Park.

Measurements from other GPS stations in northern Yellowstone show smaller displacements, forming a circular pattern of deformation (circular — as in the round mouth of a volcano) consistent with a minor pressurization (building-up underground), about 6 to 10 km (4-6 miles) deep, near Norris Junction.

What has scientists very concerned is that Yellowstone has suddenly begun emitting massive amounts of Helium-4. Helium-4 seems to be the predictor of activity, as proved with other volcanos.

Not good. Not good at all. If that sucker does ever go we could have something akin to a nuclear winter in large parts of the country.

It’d be cool to watch

if a eruption just didn’t get one dead.

There would no longer be vegetables to eat. You’d need to eat ham.

No. Only “Red State Voters” will be hurt. So Obama doesn’t care, and may even cheer on the problems. 8<)

Seriously though, a ten or hundred foot “bubble” rising would be worrisome.

1.5 inches? Not a prob lem. Now. In a century or two? We don’t know now.

Hundreds of grade 4, 5, 6 earthquakes in a month? Big problem. But this? No.

Unless it doesn’t. If I had an extra paycheck for every time they said Yellowstone was about to erupt I wouldn’t need anymore paychecks. I suppose it’ll probably happen at some point, then everybody can say “see we told you”, but it’s one of those 20 of the last 4 recessions have been predicted by leading economists situations.

Is there a way we could aim it at Washington DC?

Not exactly, if a Yellowstone eruption follows prior patterns:
