How Many People will Yellowstone National Park Kill When it Blows?

How Many People will Yellowstone National Park Kill When it Blows? | Şimali Amerika | Scoop.it
Beneath Yellowstone Park a monstrous plume of hot rock is causing the earth to heave and tremble. Past volcanoes have erupted with a thousand times the power of Mount St. Helens. The future is anybody’s guess.

The world'lst three vocano super-eruptioins have been at Yellowstone.  "An eruption 2.1 million years ago was more than twice as strong, leaving a hole in the ground the size of Rhode Island."  Scientists believe that it could blow again in our lifetimes, or not for hundreds of years.  While it looks like the park sits inside a large basin, it's really the opening of an active volcano.  This article is a bit longer than average, but is interesting the whole way through.

This is a scary aspect of the study of geography. Being able to know a cataclysmic event lurks somewhere on the horizon, yet being unable to pinpoint a time in which this event is likely to occur. The Yellowstone National park is in fact itself one of the largest volcaneos on earth. The scariest part is that it is not extinct and will someday explode. The power of that inevitable explosion promises to be incredible, and the damage it causes will be devastating.

I must be living under a rock. This is the first time I hear of this.

Because of its elevation and latitude, this large desert is considered cold.  Scientists believe it has been home to Native Americans since 10,000 B.C. Spanish explorers came to the region in the 1700s, and an American first crossed it in 1827 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Basin).
