What would happen if America’s Yellowstone supervolcano erupted one day?
It doesn’t matter if you live in No-Man-Land. The whole planet will be affected.
Yellowstone is really a timebomb.
Experts warn of 90,000 immediate deaths and a ‘nuclear winter’ across the US if supervolcano erupts.
It could release 1 ft layer of molten ash 1,000 miles from the National Park.
It would be 1,000 times as powerful as the 1980 Mount St Helens eruption.
A haze would drap over the United States, causing temperatures to drop.
Experts say there is a 1 in 700,000 annual chance of a eruption at the site.
Like for the largest volcanic eruption of the past two million years at Lake Toba some 75,000 years ago, gas, ash and debris from Yellowstone would make their way around the planet and form a shield in the atmosphere that deflected the sun’s warming rays.
Worlwide temperatures would plummet and the planet would be thrown into a volcanic winter and even an mini ice age, thus bringing humanity to the edge of extinction.
