If I had a nickel for every conspiracy theorist that has said bison are leaving Yellowstone National Park because the super-volcano is about to erupt, I'd be a rich man. Let's deal with this theory with a crazy thing called "facts".
The possible eruption (someday) of the super-volcano in Yellowstone is almost laughable for those of us that live here. Sure, it could happen someday, but in our lifetime? Probably not. But, if you've ever wondered what that event might look like, there's a new computer simulation of this terrifying event.
Thanks to movies and pop culture, the Yellowstone super-volcano in our backyard gets all the press from sensationalistic theories about the end of the world. The truth is there is a much more dangerous super-volcano and it's not Yellowstone. It's Campi Flegrei.
Are you concerned about current instability in the world? Thinking that Yellowstone may erupt and ruin our day sometime soon? I have a solution for you. It's a community of survival bunkers in a remote part of South Dakota.
I must admit that I tend to be apprehensive about sharing news about what the geysers are doing in Yellowstone. The reason being that no matter what I share someone seems to want to tie it to the super volcano. That's likely to be the case here as Steamboat Geyser has started erupting much more frequently over the past few weeks.
2020 has been a year unlike any other due to the pandemic and other adjacent crisis that have developed. If the internet is to be believed (just don't), the Yellowstone super volcano will be the next big event we'll have to deal with.
