“The explosion could be catastrophic.”

the mount not a mount

Yellowstone National Park is located in Wyoming, with parts of it in Montana and Idaho. The park is famous for its volcanic hot spot where smoke can be seen pouring from the center. The hot spot is what we call a super volcano, one that is so powerful that it could cause cataclysmic damage felt over the country, and in other parts of the globe. And what’s crazy is that the volcanic spring is well overdue for a blast. A side note to that is that the odds of it blowing at anytime is one in 730,000. Yet the fear still lingers there in the back of our minds.

immense damage

The reason the eruption is so damaging is because of the ash cloud that could linger over the country. The eruption, according to an article posted on the → live science website, could send ash clouds as far as southern most tip of Florida. Something this powerful could effect climate and send us into a spiral. Leading to famine, drastic temperature rises and falls, along with devastating crop lost. The climate shift of the country could last for as long as a decade. From the live science website below is a picture of the effects of the ash cloud.

history’s worse

The biggest eruptions in history are as listed below due to their catastrophic effects in time:

  1. Yellowstone (640,000 years ago)
  2. Huaynaputina (1600)
  3. Krakatoa (1883)
  4. Saint Maria Volcano (1902)
  5. Novarupta (1912)
  6. Mount Pinatubo (1991)
  7. Ambrym Island (50 A.D.)
  8. Ilopango Volcano (450 A.D.)
  9. Mt. Thera (1610 B.C.)
  10. Changbaishan Volcano (1000 A.D.)
  11. Mt. Tambora, Sumbawa Island (1812)

So the question still remains, there was already a blast along with others in the world. But the greatest is still Yellowstone which as I said earlier is overdue for another explosion. And as man lives our lives consumed with political and social strife. Little do we know the dangers lurking beneath our feet that could kill every one of us in America. Or leave millions with long lasting health effects.

“For I was hungry and ye fed me not.” – MLK

Watching the results of the hurricane that hit the city of Houston made me realize something. All these people who are saying keep the city in your prayers; I wonder how many of them are giving aid. And it does not necessarily have to be in the form of money. I wonder how many of those people are actively engaging in trying to make the situation better. Are they going house to house making sure people are fine? Are they reaching out to see if they could perform some civic duty to make the lives of people in Houston better? Are they putting together some type of initiative to aid in the safety of people in need? Whatever it is they should be doing should be exemplified, yet it’s not as much as it should be.

There was recent backlash at the famous pastor Joel Olsteen who runs a mega church where 16,000 people come on Sundays to hear him speak. He has a church that could hold masses, which could serve as a place of refuge. But he instead stated that he would help if there were more people who couldn’t get the help because helped had reached its capacity at its current levels. People felt that a man of his stature should disregard the aid people were receiving and still open up his doors. Since the backlash, he has made a turn around, yet people still think that he should have done this initially. Why did it take backlash toward a man who is suppose to be a man of God to answer? Let’s say no one made a statement, would he have acted or just left everything alone.

In moments like this, you really find out what the human species is all about. People themselves have been helping each other, yet the ones of the religious faith who are respected the most have been praying. If religion is real and the faith is real, there should an out pour of assistance of church leaders nationwide. And I think that as time continues to trek along, you are going to start to see a decline in religion. Because people are having this feeling that we have to help each other. So religion begins to take a back seat with so many people helping one another. It’s just sad that people don’t aid each other on daily basis. But as for the church, time passes and with that time comes a disinterest in the belief as a whole. Because when stakes are high and chips are down, these religious figures run away the fastest.

In the end, I don’t know what the real answer should be. But you see the real nature of man the moment disasters happen. This is actually the upside to us as people. No matter the ethnic background, our human existence becomes paramount when trying to survive. And that will always be the status quo, yet I do believe the religious figures are becoming less and less important. (PERSONAL WEBSITE) (FAN PAGE)
