A Surprise From the Supervolcano
Under Yellowstone

New York Times, by Shannon Hall

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/12/2017 5:22:09 AM

Beneath Yellowstone National Park lies a supervolcano, a behemoth far more powerful than your average volcano. It has the ability to expel more than 1,000 cubic kilometers of rock and ash at once — 2,500 times more material than erupted from Mount St. Helens in 1980, which killed 57 people. That could blanket most of the United States in a thick layer of ash and even plunge the Earth into a volcanic winter. Yellowstone’s last supereruption occurred 631,000 years ago. And it’s not the planet’s only buried supervolcano. Scientists suspect that a supereruption scars the planet every 100,000 years, causing many

The caldera is huge. The NYT is finally writing about this (yawn) when it´s been well known for years. This year the earthquake swarm is big.

I´ve always worried about the long term effects of oil and gas drilling would be.For all we know oil is a natural coolant that protects the Earth´s surface because the center of the planets core is not cooling off,not even after a billion or so years..Drilling leaves huge empty space below the Earth´s surface.I´m far more concerned about earthquakes and volcanos than I am about stupid climate change.

Oh no, the horror, the horror! Get Al Gore Bot on the phone, he´ll know what to do! Give up my SUV, my meat [so to speak], and air conditioning? Only eat kale and sprouts? I´ll do it, Al, I´ll do it!

I get worried when I read this article; I envision Dr. Evil with the liquid hot "magma". The fact is no one can predict this with any degree of certainty, but it makes for good headlines.

The building caldera in the Sulfatara super volcano near Naples, Italy is more a threat than Yellowstone.

Exactly, #6. While this is a very scary premise, we cannot live in fear. I watched a documentary that said that Yellowstone is a huge threat but the scientists did not believe it would erupt in their lifetimes, probably not for a thousand years. However, having said that, there are no promises. Actually, visited there a couple weeks ago and I can tell you after viewing the documentary the beauty of the park was diminished when I thought about what was lying right under my feet. Yikes!

"Correction: October 11, 2017

An earlier version of a home page headline for this article misstated the location of a supervolcano that drives geological activity. It is beneath Yellowstone National Park, not Yosemite. Additionally, the amount of material that could be expelled by the supervolcano was miscalculated. It is 2,500 times more than erupted from Mount St. Helens in 1980, not 250,000.
"

These are two massively-egregious errors that somebody caught after publication. What other less-obvious distortions might be lurking in this hyperbolically-alarmist piece from our nation´s fakenews leader? They present the Yellowstone supervolcano as some kind of epiphany, when I´ve read epic articles about it throughout the press for 30 years or so.

What fresh piece of old or fake news will NYT breathlessly tell us next?

We had a pretty monstrous volcano here in Northern California too. I think the only thing left of the volcano is a caldera and the very small, by comparison, Mt. Lassen volcano.

The foothills on the west side of the Sacramento Valley here are actually giant mud and rock flows from the melted snow on the cone. We know because there are tertiary rivers (over 2-1/2 million years old) that ran under the mud. Miners tunneled into them to find gold.

Because the Pacific Coast Mountain Range wasn´t there at the time, the flows stopped when they hit the ocean on the west side of the Sacramento Valley. I really wouldn´t have wanted to be here then.

Five Painful Lessons
from the Weinstein Scandal
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 10/21/2017 5:06:00     Post Reply
We’re in week two of the Weinstein scandal, meaning that the story is no longer on the front pages and is now becoming a convenient cudgel for a lot of oddly distant causes: “Zionism.” “Patriarchy and capitalism.” The “toxic masculinity” in American culture. Let’s not let the conversation stray too far from what’s already clear, and worthy of further scrutiny. There are five key points we must never forget. One: “Everybody knew.” If not everyone, then an exceptionally wide range of people in the movie business knew about Weinstein’s predatory behavior and chose to avert their eyes. On his Facebook

Axios has put together this nifty series of charts detailing the timeline of sexual assault charges against Harvey Weinstein, Bill O´Reilly, Roger Ailes, Donald Trump, and Bill Cosby. The charts track the dates of when the various incidents allegedly occurred relative to the years they were first reported in the media. (Snip)But do you notice a major public figure missing from this chart? Indeed, it is remarkable we´re in the midst of a Great Sexual Assault Awakening, yet the media is remarkably unwilling to discuss the several credible accusations made against Bill Clinton.

President Donald Trump called three Republican senators this week and expressed support for their 2018 re-election bids, aligning with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the senator´s intra-party feud with Steve Bannon. Trump dialed GOP Sens. John Barrasso of Wyoming, Deb Fischer of Nebraska and Roger Wicker of Mississippi, according to five people familiar with the calls. He promised to help the three senators against any insurgent challengers, one of these people said, and said he hoped they would be reelected. The calls are expected to eventually be followed by formal endorsements, GOP senators said. Wicker, Barrasso and Fischer declined

Sally Quinn, the well-known Washington journalist, has published a new memoir called Finding Magic. Even for those of us who have followed her nearly 50-year career with unflagging interest, it is full of news. Ingeniously, Quinn has outfitted the book with a literary device guaranteed to discourage bad reviews. Her fellow scribblers can only kick themselves for not thinking of it first. Quinn begins with a loving portrait of her childhood in Georgia, where the family servants schooled her in voodoo. Her mother was already initiated. When the local vet misdiagnosed the family dachshund, Quinn tells us, Mom lost her temper

For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie

A key informant in the Russian bribery and extortion scheme to gain control of US atomic resources wants to tell Congress what he knows — but is legally barred from doing so. That’s the latest bombshell to emerge from The Hill’s exposés this week that the Obama administration knew all about the scheme yet still OK’d a deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of US uranium. Moreover, the unidentified informant tried to tell his story by filing a lawsuit during last year’s campaign — but was squelched by the Obama Justice Department. According to his lawyer, Reagan-era Justice official Victoria Toensing,

Though the College Republicans initially offered to speak to the protesters, those demonstrating refused to leave and demanded instead the Republicans end their meeting. One person in attendance, a Democrat, stood up, however, and defended his right-leaning fellow students. “I immediately stood up and confronted them,” Phil Leonard told Fox News. “I was the only one to stand up and confront them.” The school’s director

All the Other Harvey Weinsteins

The tale of Harvey Weinstein is now a thread that has tangled its way through Hollywood, connecting women, mostly actresses, in a depressingly common way. We all seem to have a Harvey story, each one a little different but with essentially the same nauseating pattern and theme. Women were bullied, cajoled, manipulated, and worse, and then punished. My Harvey story is different, mostly because of timing. I was in one of the first films that Weinstein produced. I accepted a supporting role in a small movie based on “Loser Takes All,” the short novel by Graham Greene. I was twenty years

And it was only on Day 13 that senators demanded more information about the attack. On Tuesday, the Senate Armed Services Committee said the Trump administration had not been forthcoming enough. Committee Chairman John McCain even said, “I had a better working relationship, as far as information back

Former President George W.

Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

In July, McCain disclosed he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and last month he said the prognosis was “very poor.” McCain, 81, was re-elected to a sixth term in the Senate in 2016. “This memoir will be about what matters most to him,

Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples
