Super volcano - The Elephant in the room
3 months ago

I had the please of watching a show on the National Geographic about super volcanoes and how we appear to be long over due for an eruption. They describe the intensity of such eruptions and the utter and complete global devastation as a result. Yellowstone was mentioned as being one of many such events. As I watched the program go into the what if's and what would happen's ... I began to think how thankful I am for living in a relatively flat, geo-dormant part of the world. Then as the program progressed and laid out the after effects of such eruptions, it became quite clear that no one on the planet would escape the devastating effects of such an event. Basically, if such an event occurs, we're all pretty much doomed except for deep sea marine life.

The point? ... Well, none really, it just a humble reminder just how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things.
