Yellowstone Supervolcano

Why it may be about to blow - Is the supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park about to blow? Sometimes science is right and seismologists have discovered that there is a huge plume of molten rock over 600 miles deep beneath the park that is increasing the changes of volcanic activity.

Seismologist Mathias Obrebski used huge array of seismometers to test the seismic plates along the plume and found them to be unstable. On the Fox News website, Lynne Peeples quotes seismologist Vic Camp as saying, "Chemical and physical volcanology evidence suggested a plume, but this is the first seismic proof. If you look at the mass extinctions on Earth, we think that a few may have been associated with eruptions from mantle plumes."

Extinction is definitely in the future of some of the animals on this Earth and it may even be in the human future as well.
