A Supervolcano Waking Up In The USA -6/8/2017

https://youtu.be/go6tmmhE2N0 A Supervolcano Waking Up In The USA -6/8/2017 A supervolcano which in case of eruption will blow all of North America and doom half of the world to slow death is starting to wake up. Can’t we do anything about it? First let’s decide on what is a supervolcano. It’s nothing like a regular volcano – a cone-shaped formation with a vent – it’s more of a huge depression with the eruption area covering a few thousand square kilometers. For instance, a supervolcanic eruption on the Indonesian island of Sumatra caused six years of sulfuric acid rains. Add to this the...

What I found on Mt. St. Helens 37 years after the eruption

What I found on Mt. St. Helens - This has been amazing to explore Climbing to the top of Mt. Saint Helens and looking down into the massive crater below was a truly amazing bucket list item for me.

St. Helens erupted May 18th 1980 with such force that it changed the surrounding landscape and destroyed everything in it. Finding all the mangled abandoned trucks still sitting on the county side...
