I meant to ask, "Is Disappointment the Nurse of Wisdom?"
When I first heard of these occurrences, I started a plan of researching the
subject and following up on information gathered through an internet search
engine. I have experience in military protocols and survival training. My
past is perhaps upon me. I had better keep myself informed and not let the
mainstream broadcast stations delegate my actions. I know what I need to do and
I shall start preparations for the worst case scenario and at the same time I
will pray for the best outcome. I have four children to look out for and I owe
it to myself to at least take precautions for a cataclysmic event. An
earthquake is one thing and a volcano is so much something worse. If this thing
does not erupt in my lifetime, it most certainly will in someone else's.Is Disappointment is the Nurse of Wisdom?
Brian, check news archives back 15 yrs. Activity has been increasing. It may not
be a super event, but we don't need to stick our heads in the sand when we
should at least have an emergency supply of water, canned goods, and dried milk.
Yellowstone has had plenty of eruptions that are not the "Super Volcano"
eruptions. The only ones you hear about are the 3 "Super" eruptions, but if
Yellowstone does erupt, the odds are that it would not be the really huge one.
Not that it would not be spectacular though, it may be bigger then any in recent
times, but not necessarily "Super"
People are forgetting that this is not a volcano but a Super Volcano. These are
two quite different animals. If the Yellowstone blows up the ash alone will kill
Millions of people not only in the US but the entire planet. If you breath this
particular ash for a too long it goes into your lungs and when it touches the
the moist passages in your lungs it turns into solid masses of concrete. People
die of Mary's Disease. (Oh to the guy from Texas-Texas, hey nowhere would be
safe from the effects) The explosion will destroy all aerial traffic, the
global weather will got into chaos mode, there will be mass global starvation,
most of the middle of the US will be uninhabitable for generations, 2 billion
people will die in the first year, there will be countless wars for the
remaining resources and the US will be at the mercy of the nations we now call
the third world. I got friends that work for a GOV think tank. They did an
analysis of this scenario and be better hope it doesn't happen for the next 300
Google "great quaking and waves" to see what I posted before the quakes started
and after. Also try blogsearch (,com) for the results containing the Christmas
2008 posting. Be prepared to learn something stunning.Peace and
Interestingly, there was a 6.2 earthquake in the Ring of Fire off of the
Philippines on December 25. This is part of the same system that runs under the
Pacific and feeds Yellowstone. Perhaps we're witnessing some belching from
10xcsngamma ray bursts WAY UP FOR DEC.GOOGLE GAMMA RAYS AND
QUAKES/VULCANISM.Hope it don't blow.Want to see Jellystone park
,Yogi and Boo-Boo one more time.
im 10 and i know more about vulcanalgy than most in my town of 20,000 bou this
can be a warning for the Us or the world becaus ash can lower temps for the
climete but it can be nothing but this worrys me and even tho i stink at
spelling i may be a expert not to brag ive ben studying this sence i was 6 years
An exciting time - I hope it blows. Though I know it would not be good for our
country, or the world, I think volcanism is awesome. I think we'd see some more
dramatic indications of a major event. St. Helens swelled big time before it
blew. Is there any indication that the ground is rising on the north end of the
lake? Didn't that happen some years ago, and then it receded? That whole hot
spot is moving correct?
What's making this swarm unique is frequency and intensity. Also, the swarm is
in a single location in the middle of Yellowstone Lake right above the magma
chamber. What can also be seen on the seismic graphs are harmonic tremors a
sort of low level constant rumbling that indicates magma is on the move...
Time sage, I dont understand?, so the west coast is in jeopardy yet its located
under mt. and the dakota's?, just curious?
Dead Unicorn, you could set that to the tune of "Body of an American", by the
Pogues. But you need to add a syllable to the last line to keep the meter. May
I suggest "and then we all burn together"?
At Unicorn's poem.
And we scream and we moan as old yellowstonerains a storm of fiery
weatherand the earth starts to crack as the sky's turning blackand
we all burn together
Consider the ground water that fuels the geysers;then consider the drought
& the lengthening time of geyser eruptions;In spite of its cooling system
drying up, a couple of scientists 3 yrs ago mapped the up & down side of the
magma plume under the USA, and found that it has moved westward. So, the plumes
upward flow is no longer pushing up under Yellowstone, but under Montana/Idaho -
and the down-flow is under the Dakotas.Now it's up to you to research the
crustal geology for integrity.I know enough now to never go to the West
coast.~Be wise. Bless you.
SUPER VOLCANOOOOOO wooooooooooooooooooGET
OUT WHILE YOU CAN!
The background noise is just wind. Compare it with the wind graphs at
wunderground for Yellowstone and it's pretty clear cut. Tonight winds are 30-35
mph in the park. I've stopped looking at the noise and just look at the spikes.
I haven't followed the earthquake patterns in Yellowstone. The depth of the
quakes is running from about 3km all the way up to the surface. In other words
quite shallow. Looking at the seismic recordings, it seems that the background
noise has increased in the last 8 hours or so. Fun to puzzle about, so good luck
UU Seismologists! I look forward to further news.
If there were anything significant to report, the U. of Utah seismologists &
geologists would do so. I've worked with them and can vouch for how they
work.Earthquake swarms are not unusual in Yellowstone, and by
themselves do not indicate a pending eruption. Often they are just steam
explosions. Ground swelling and sulfur gas emissions with the swarm would
suggest a possible eruption, but that is NOT the case today.If some
time in the future there were to be an eruption in Yellowstone, it would likely
be a small one--a lava flow, for example. The Earth-Destroyer is truly a rare
event in geologic time.
Good detail and I appreiate the follow up Alexander. I looked up this article
because of concern that high activity, even at lower levels, might be a sign of
possible volcanic activity. It certainly bears watching.Safe here
Well, proving I am no expert, the 1.1 to 1.8 quakes were actually N to NE of the
Geysers in CA. So although I acted with too much haste on my last comment and
not enough research, I still have the same concerns for the Yellowstone Caldera.
I apologize to the University of Utah for my hastey comment. I am sure you are
dilligent in your observations concerning Yellowstone. I do, however, have one
question remaining: Why do you say it is common for these swarms in this area?
Are they not usually in the SC Dome and ML Dome? Anyhow, disregard my last
post. It was written out of ignorance and haste.
Eathquake swarms may be common in the general AREA, but none that I have seen
inside the caldera. And now, the University of Utah has ceased to report to the
public the most recent quakes...all of which are in the same area measuring from
magnitude 1.1 to 1.8. This may seem insignificant, but it worries me because of
the dramatic uplift and down fall of the caldera. Are these quakes a sign of
another eruption from our super past? I don't believe anyone really knows. I
just want to know why the University of Utah suddenly stopped reporting these
recent quakes to the public and why they are down playing the whole senario. I
admit that I am no expert in the field of volcanism, but I know a thing or two.
These are events that deserve close observation and the utmost attention from
our Geologists and Volcanists. It may very well be nothing, but it may very
well be the beginning of a super eruption...one of which has never been recorded
and would change the human race and how we live forever.
