Deep Contact: A super eruption will darken the Sun, and gradually push the Earth into a nuclear winter for many years, or even centuries, we will have to survive in darkness and cold and no cable TV.
doczoidberg: That would be awesome. It's time to reduce the planet's population by...oh...about 3 billion.
Snort: Another? Its the same damn one they keep talking about.Every mention of Super Volcano is Yellowstone.
eyeq360: Not worried. There are other supervolcanoes to worry about right now. Another one a 100 million years from now...pshaw.If someone had conclusive evidence that there will be no more bacon for anyone, permanently, like tomorrow, that's something to panic over.One example is the Yellowstone super volcano, which has blown its top three times in the past 2 million years.Thorne published all this in the journal, Earth and Planetary Science Letters. He's rather calm about it, and says it is a slow process from blob to blowout - maybe 100 million years or so.
Grapple: the funnier part is.. in "geologic time" 100 million years is like.. tomorrow. seriously.
Canton: FTA: Thorne published all this in the journal, Earth and Planetary Science Letters. He's rather calm about it, and says it is a slow process from blob to blowout - maybe 100 million years or so.Okay, that's... plenty of time to get ready. Thanks for the heads up, subby.
