Today I present you the article
Yellowstone: the time bomb under America
The article was first published in “The Independent” and than printed in the World and Press.
The article is about the huge danger of the Yellowstone National Park which nearly no one knows or even would expect.
So most visitors of Yellowstone National Park know, that they have to take care of animals and the fascinating landscape there. But many of them probably have never thought about that all of the magnificent landscape could be blown away within only a few seconds.
The Yellowstone staff also tries to hide that fact because they fear less tourism.
But according to a recent study they should be aware of a big danger.
The hot springs only give a small hint of what is below the Park.
There are seething layers of molten magma, super-heated gases and hydrothermal liquids.
In the past volcanic eruptions created fissures in the crust, which allowed giant streams of molten rock, or magma to come closer to the earth’s surface.
Caused by this immense movement the Park is also moving.
The explorer found out that in the past 30 months the earth was raising nearly 18 cm into the sky, this is three times faster than has ever been observed before.
Its also alarming that the researchers calculate with an eruption interval of 650 000 years, and the last eruption was 640 000 years ago.
Such an eruption would blow 250 km^3 in the air and would have 1000 times more power than a Hiroshima bomb.
90 percent of the people in an ambit of 1000km would die.
America would be covered by meters of ashes.
The atmosphere would coole five to ten degrees down.
There would be over a billion people without food.
But the researchers also say that there are no current signs for an eruption in the near future, so there is no reason for panic.
But if the ground of the Park continues to raise and wont go down there will be a terrible catastrophe and what also frightening is, is that there isn’t any plan how to deal with such a situation, so we have to hope that the volcano will be quiet.
