Crapture 2011 was probably worse than Charlie Sheen’s Winning Tour. Y2K was an enormous bust. Global warming catastrophe scenarios have not materialized.
I realize that this is all very disappointing to Jemmy Wolly.
Fortunately, we have Yogimageddon to worry about:
The dangerous supervolcano that once destroyed much of what’s now the USA is much bigger than vulcanologists previously thought.
That’s the disturbing information confirmed by an important new study published in the prestigious journal of Geophysical Research Letters.
Mind you, that’s a prestigious journal.
What you see in the artist’s rendering above is the earth preparing to take an enormous shart.
The volcano has been producing ominous warning signs the past several years and an area near what used to be a large lake is now sealed off to the public.
The lake boiled away and all the fish died. Since that time sulfuric fumaroles have opened in the earth and the ground has become so hot shoes melt into it.
I would say the melting shoes is a warning sign.
A survey in 2009 conducted by scientists gathered past seismic wave data from earthquakes in the region to create a 3D image of the subterranean hotspot. The actual ancient caldera, now mostly a shallow impression in the ground, spans across three states: Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
All experts agree that if another massive eruption occurs the concussion, lava, superheated gas and ash fall would effectively destroy almost half of the US and be the greatest single catastrophe in recorded world history.
That would be kind of a drag, I must say.
So, in case you were looking for something new and different to worry about, have at it.
