2692Yellowstone Super-Volcano Continues Threat

If external events are to match my internal emotions, then something is
unfolding that is, well just plain unsettling. I simply
cannot put my finger on it. For my internal emotions, I call it �free
floating anxiety�. Meaning there is absent a �cause and
effect� scenario. A general feeling of dis-ease.
Now, if 'external' events were to match my 'internal' feelings, then there
is something to be just a bit concerned with. Perhaps
a perfect example to describe human emotions, and celestial upset, would be
to compare Yellowstone Volcano and its
actions, with that of my own (or yours).
Just minutes ago, I received notice from Dr. Bruce Cornet - Geologist,
Paleobotanist, and Palynologist, regarding the current
activity of Yellowstone super-volcano. I will post right here the
information he has just now conveyed. I will have Dr. Cornet
on the ECTV �Radio Hour� this Tuesday, September 9th.
"Mt. Sheriden has been rumbling (15+ micro-quakes) between 1:00 pm and now
(9/7/03). There were three small
earthquakes at Yellowstone lake between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm MT (9/7/03),
which were felt at Norris Junction.
There were some small quakes between Midnight and 6:00 am (9/7/03) at Norris
Junction. There was a whole string
of micro-quakes (25 or more) at Madison River between 6:00 am and now, which
are continuing. There have been
sporadic micro-quakes (32+) all day at Mammoth Hot Springs. Micro-quakes
started around Noon and have
continued to the present at Mirror Lake Plateau. All in all, activity is
picking up from a lull for about two weeks,
before which a series of small and large quakes (including a 4.4) occurred.
That quake prompted the web report.
Steam pressure is apparently building again, and hydrothermal fluids and
steam are working their way up through
fractures and vents. I do not expect anything unusual or extreme to happen
in the immediate future, but if the trend
continues, and the number of earthquakes gradually increase with time, more
warnings from geologists will ensue.
What you should be alert to is any report that mentions increasing geyser
activity, with new fumaroles and steam
vents appearing near or on top of the rising dome. The dome has risen about
three feet in the past few years, and
magma has risen to within 3.7 km of the surface based on quake data.
Earthquake loci measured to within 0.5 km
under Mt. St. Helens, and people still didn't think it would erupt.
But everything has to be scaled up for Yellowstone, meaning that 3.7 km is
not a safe depth. Ground temperatures
in the northwestern part of the park are apparently on the rise (up to 200
dg F in some places), killing the
vegetation. Large areas of the park are now closed, including areas with
geysers, because their water temperature
is now scalding and dangerous for visitors.
If more steam vents appear, that means a continuous pathway for pressure
release has been established to the
magma chamber. If that happens, the pressure in the magma chamber will
continue to drop until it reaches a
critical stage when the superheated water within the magma explodes. When
that happens the super-volcano will
blow violently, blowing out a chunk of its cap-rock and sending millions of
cubic feet of ash into the atmosphere in a
Pompeii-like explosion, but 100,000 times worse.
When you hear those reports, you will have about two days to �get out of
Dodge� before the eruption.
Unfortunately, as the steam venting subsides, there will be a false sense of
security. People will think it was just
another cyclical event, and the danger is over. But that will be the
farthest from the truth. It will be the quiet before
the storm. A major earthquake will suddenly rock their towns for hundreds
of kilometers around Yellowstone, and
soon thereafter 1,000+ degree pyroclastic flows will descend on them at
hundreds of miles per hour, extending out
to 600+ km.
That 600 km radius around the caldera will experience total devastation.
The next 600 km out may receive as much
as 5-10 feet of ash, depending on wind direction. The thickness of ash will
decrease away from the super-volcano,
but will reach the crop belt in the Midwest (Missouri, Iowa, Kansas,
Nebraska, etc.), destroying most of the fertile
croplands of the United States. California will be hit hard by falling ash,
with its central wine valley severely
damaged (the French will love it). Agriculture will have to shift east of
the Mississippi for years. The Garden State
will once again live up to its name.
In northern Idaho you will have to contend with several feet of ash and
isolation. Roads will be closed. Power will
be out. Phones will be out. Communication will depend on Ham radios and
local stations that have generators.
Rescue will take weeks or months. Some areas will never see rescue teams.
The survivalists will be best prepared to
make it through the difficult months following the eruption. Make new
friends. Have plenty of dust masks on hand,
because you cannot breath any airborne ash if you want to avoid lung
disease. It's what caused mass kills of plains
animals 12 million years ago, resulting in extensive bone beds beneath the
ash. Drinkable water will sell at the price
To recap, I don't expect anything to happen in the near future. But with
such an unpredictable event, being
prepared is your best ticket to survival."

I will be in contact with Adam Rubel to set up an interview perhaps on
Thursday, September 11th. We will discuss any new
disclosure from the Mayan Elders concerning this delicate period between
August 16th and December 15th of this year. Yes,
I just realized this is the "September 11" (9-1-1). Hmm, is there something
going on in the sub-conscience?
Bubba Bush Admits He Failed
Tonight on bubba�s address to the nation, he admits his regime cannot run
the world alone. He is asking for other world
nations to join in. Gee, what do you think will be their response. "Uhh,
sorry bubba, but the penalty for not using Vaseline
when you stuck it to us is "get lost". The surprise will not come from
Germany or France, but England itself. Let the good
times roll. And remember, use your power of inclusion (assuming Florida
doesn't happen again), and get out the vote.
Bubba, through omission, admits there is no "weapons of mass destruction".
He also admits, there is no connection between
Al-Queda, Iraq and 9-11. But most everyone agrees, now after bubba's
actions, Al-Queda and every other terrorist group is
taking up with Iraq. The ones who are suffering most, are the Iraqi people
themselves. Those of you old enough to have
experienced Vietnam, may have a sense of 'deja-vu'. It truly sickens me.
Having lived through Johnson and Nixon, I would
not have thought in a million years Vietnam could ever happen again. I was

Thought For The Day
"The first key to wisdom is constant and frequent questioning, for by
doubting we are led to question and by
questioning we arrive at the truth."
