Scientists say supervolcano Yellowstone is about to blow, potentially killing millions of people

Scientists at the site of “supervolcano” Yellowstone have warned that there is a chance the volcano could erupt this volcano season, which would end up killing millions of people worldwide, and devastating the planet. 

The scientists have warned that instances of volcanic eruptions are their highest for 300 years at the moment, and there is a 10% change of Yellowstone erupting this year.

Experts at the European Science Foundation have pointed out that Super-volcanoes like the one at Yellowstone National Park, pose a much greater threat to Earth and humans than asteroids, earthquakes, global warming, and even a nuclear or hydrogen bomb.

Express.co.uk reports:

There are few real contingency plans in place to deal with the ticking time bomb, which they conclude is likely to go off within the next 80 years.

The world’s most dangerous active volcanoes include Yellowstone, Mount Vesuvius in Campagnia, Italy, and Popocatépetl i near Mexico City.

If any of them or other massive volcanic peaks suffered a major eruption the team said millions of people would die and earth’s atmosphere would be poisoned with ash and other toxins “beyond the imagination of anything man’s activity and global warming could do over 1,000 years.

The chance of such as eruption happening at one of the major volcanoes within 80 years is put at five to ten per cent by the experts.

There are already fears that Yellowstone could blow any time within the next 70 years on a scale that would wiped out the western USA and affect the course of global history.

The report – “Extreme Geo-hazards: Reducing the Disaster Risk and Increasing Resilience,” warns global government’s preparations for such happenings are virtually non-existent.

It said: “Although in the last few decades earthquakes have been the main cause of fatalities and damage, the main global risk is large volcanic eruptions that are less frequent but far more impactfull than the largest earthquakes.
