Yellowstone Restless?Eruption Overdue
We recently wrote about a huge underwater bulge in a lake in Yellowstone National Park that’s getting ready to blow. Three years ago, the BBC ran a story about supervolcanoes in Yellowstone. Only a few of these exist, hidden deep beneath the Earth’s surface. If one erupts, the explosion will be heard around the world, creating dark skies with the effect of a nuclear winter. A past eruption may be the reason the North American continent was relatively empty when Europeans arrived.
