    Its still active......and its eruption 74,000 years ago was worse than the biggest Yellowstone eruption 2.1 million years ago.

    Thank you sir. Didn't know that. I know it created a lake it's last eruption and killed off 30% of the world's population. Thought it was extinct. Guess I was wrong!

    If Yellowstone blows in your lifetime you better pack your bags and join the rest of the refugees heading to Germany and Europe.

    No worries......lets not forget that the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa was heard in Australia. Also the Mount Tamboura eruption in 1815 caused a global cold snap. There was snow in the summer of 1916 in New England.

    I doubt its going to be in my life time and Europe wouldn't be much better off.

    No......due to the affects of Yellowstone...but you have worse volcanoes to worry about.

    Toba and that's not an opinion....also Krakatoa & Tamboura are very bad and much closer. In addition if Agung explodes like Tamboura your area will be severly affected and the affects will be global for all four.

    A large volcanic eruption will cause massive global cooling.

    We should ban renewable energy and subsidize fossil fuel producers to mitigate a future problem.

    They are lucky they didn't get suffocated or burned by pyroclastic flows.

    Good advice and considering the volcanoes in that area I'd feel safer on the Big Island.
