Yellowstone Volcano Eruption: Report Claims That US Has Contingency Deal With Brazil, Australia
Epoch Times ^ | May 7, 2014 | Zachary Stieber

Posted on 05/09/2014 8:30:45 AM PDT by BenLurkin

If the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts then millions of U.S. citizens could end up in Brazil, Australia, or Argentina.

That’s according to the South African news website Praag, which said that the African National Congress was offered $10 billion a year for 10 years if it would build temporary housing for Americans in case of an eruption.

The potential eruption of the supervolcano, one of the biggest in the world, has been a hot topic ever since videos of animals allegedly fleeing the area before an earthquake were posted online. Although the veracity of the claims haven’t been backed up, dozens of bloggers and others have been trying to figure out what, if anything, is going on.

One of the latest theories is that the U.S. Geological Service and its partners, which keep an eye on the caldera, are hiding data from the public.

From what I have read if that thing really blows it will be a planet wide event

It would definitely have worldwide impacts, but displacement of citizens would be focused in North America.

Where I am located I am less likely to be “displaced” and more likely to be entombed.

Any chance we could move the ash clouds to the North East?? As it stands now, too many Red states get smashed.

Instead of sending millions of Americans to Africa, as this latest plan seems to suggest, how about we send all the illegals back to Mexico and points south? Not to mention Haiti, Somalia, Sudan, etc.

I believe it. It would be wide spread panic and total chaos for the controlling authorities. But then again, Obama could call for martial law, and he'd be king for life...

Very true. Moving may buy you some time. In the end however you’re basically in a situation like the novel On the Beach.

Oh, sinner man, where you’re gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you’re gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you’re gonna run to all on that day?

Run to the moon, “Moon, won’t you hide me?”
Run to the sea, “Sea, won’t you hide me?”
Run to the sun, “Sun, won’t you hide me all on that day?”

Lord said, “Sinner man, moon’ll be a bleeding”
Lord said, “Sinner man, sea’ll be a sinking”
Lord said, “Sinner man, sun’ll be a freezing all on that day”

Oh, sinner man, where you’re gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you’re gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you’re gonna run to all on that day?

Run to the Lord, “Lord, won’t You hide me?”
Run to the Lord, “Lord, won’t You hide me?”
Run, run, “Lord, won’t You hide me all on that day?”

Lord said, “Sinner man, you should’ve been a praying”
Lord said, “Sinner man, should’ve been a praying”
Lord said, “Sinner man, you shoud’ve been a praying, all on that day.

The note below it is accurate. In the summer, that ash cloud will go all the way east to nearly the Atlantic. It will cover just about all of the food growing areas.

So, it would depend on what type of crop that could be grown. Grains like wheat and corn wouldn't make it. Peas and barley, might make it, depends on the cloud cover. Oats might make it also.

What I have always wanted to know, from your map, is the AMOUNT, in cm or inches the ash fall would be, AND, what we could do to mitigate that disaster here in Arkansas?

When my wife and I bought our new house, we insisted on a steep pitch, steel roof, with 12, NOT 16", space roof. We could take a few FEET of heavy, wet snow, and our roof would survive. I don't know what wet pummice weighs, but I bet it is an order of magnitude higher.

IIRC most deaths and damage when Mt. Penitubo blew was from collapsed roofs (most of which were not steep enough pitch) to allow ash to fall off.

LOL. They will -- because the volcano will blow them miles into the air and they (or pieces of them) will land in Brazil, Australia and Argentina.

I’m thinking everyone would just relocate to Mexico seeing as we have reciprocal amnesty programs ;-)
In truth though, that would be the best thing to ever happen to Mexico.

It will cover just about all of the food growing areas.

True, but there are variables:

A little ash fall will be great fertilizer.....say, a dusting.
A little more and they will inhibit growth and size of harvest.
A little more (more than an inch) will kill plants, and the harvest, but can be skidded/scraped into a new planting for next season.
A few inches will not only kill the crop, but be very problematic in disturbing the dirt and soil composition, specifically chemistry.
Drop a foot of ash? I cannot even contemplate the vast amount of resources that would be needed to rehabilitate the area for quick resumption of farming.

Harry Turtledove: Supervolcano! released a couple years ago is an interesting and sobering read.

Notice the affected area is where most of U.S. food is grown plus the Dakota oil fields.

Likely effects would be a year without a summer for at least the Northern Hemisphere.

A prudent government would have policies that,all along, encouraged maintaining stocks of food and everything else in many warehouses dispersed throughout the nation so that localized catastrophes did not cripple the entire system.

If you are the only one out of a hundred to have stocks expect to be raided by desperate people.

You are missing one item: when the volcano erupts and empties the chamber below, there will be subsidence. We are talking about dramatic alteration of the topography above.

We here in the Pacific Northwest have only recently become aware that the underground magma pool for the northern Cascades is very VERY large and interconnected. This means it may extend from volcanoes up near the Canadian border, possibly all the way to Lassen and Shasta in northern California.

Experiencing a massive subduction earthquake with a subsidence of the shoreline may result in a dramatic topographic alteration.

The ash is not that great a problem. The amount? Yes. I see the climate as a greater problem.

See..the year without a summer, 1816, etc.

That eruption, disrupted climate over the whole world.

In effect, those who die directly as a result of a mega eruption might be the lucky ones. And Tambora, was TINY compared to historical Yellowstone eruptions.

If Yellowstone detonates, everything southeast, east and northeast of it, all the way to the east coast is done...It would eventually effect the entire planet, but nothing as bad as venues downwind of it.
