    theoretically it could be catastrophic----we've got our own caldera that scientists have been watching too!--Yellowstone.

    So this may happen just when 'global warming' really kicks in? A draw. I'm just kidding. I know that Mt St Helen's eruption effected weather in US and Canada for awhile and that wasn't a catastrophic eruption.

    So little is NOT in the hands of man.

    I wonder if there's a way to safely tap into all that energy ? You could possibly produce energy and prevent disaster if the poisonous gases could be neutralized.

    Yes, Yellowstone could prove to be the biggest catastrophe short of a Hillary Clinton Presidency....:)

    Seriously, though ..... next week on the Discovery Channel.....

    I just find revealing how the first question that comes up is: "How bad could it be for america?"
    I would actually ask how bad could it be for the world but nevermind me
