  14. Yellowstone supervolcano ready to blow? Rational analysis says it's unlikely in your lifetimeRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jul 21 | NewsTarget.com

    It is true that if the Yellowstone caldera blows, it would blanket much of North America with up to three feet of ash, devastating the ecosystem, collapsing the food supply and leading to mass famine. However, with Yellowstone erupting only once every 600,000 years or so, is it really rational to focus preparedness efforts on something that's highly unlikely to happen in your lifetime? In this video, I explain why we're all much wiser to focus on things that have a far greater chance of actually happening: CME solar flare, North Korea EMP weapon attack , global financial collapse, civil war and social chaos , etc.
