Yellowstone Eruption Fears Spike As Largest Geyser Erupts For The 8th Time

Authored by Mac Slavo via,

Yellowstone caldera eruption fears have spiked as the supervolcano’s largest geyser erupted for the eight time.  So far, scientists aren’t certain why the Steamboat geyser continues to erupt, adding to the fears.

After years of silence, Yellowstone’s Steamboat geyser, a better show than Old Faithful, has spewed boiling water hundreds of feet in the air eight times since March.  Steamboat, the tallest geyser in the vast Yellowstone National Park, isn’t reliable at all, unlike the more famous Old Faithful that belches steam with regularity. But the fact is, Steamboat has been more faithful, at least lately, spewing eight times since March 14, after being silent for nearly four years. But that regularity is terrifying and puzzling scientists.

Until this recent series of eruptions, the last time Steamboat blew was in September 2014. Steamboat’s latest eruption was Monday morning when the geyser shot boiling hot water hundreds of feet into the air. Steam billowed from the geyser for hours longer. Steamboat is located in the Norris Geyser Basin, known to have the hottest and most changeable thermal area in nearly 3,500-square-mile wilderness park that sits on a volcanic hot spot called a caldera. That accounts for the geyser’s towering columns of steam (it’s very, very hot underground) but leaves a major fear-provoking question unanswered: Why now, and is it a sign the giant volcano is waking up?

Scientists don’t know why the Steamboat geyser has become more active, but they still insist that no major eruption is on the horizon. “It is a spectacular geyser,” Michael Poland, the U.S. Geological Survey’s scientist in charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, wrote to CNN in an email. “When it erupts, it generally has very big eruptions.”

Data collected so far suggests a pattern to the eruptions within the series. If it all “proves out,” the days surrounding June 11-12 are good dates to potentially see the Steamboat geyser eruptForbes reported. “Most geysers erupt infrequently, unlike Old Faithful, so Steamboat is not enigmatic in that regard. But Steamboat has a mystique about it because it is the tallest active geyser in the world. It gets attention because of this, and rightly so,” Poland said.

The day of the first eruption, park staff detected activity on nearby seismometers, thermal gauges, and water discharge on a US Geological Survey stream gauge. Yellowstone National Park staff arrived in time to observe steam from the geyser but no water column. According to the Geological Survey, this is a usual occurrence after a vigorous water eruption. The steam phase can last several hours.

Scientists consider Yellowstone to be a “‘supervolcano,” which refers to volcano capable of an eruption of more than 240 cubic miles of magma,” according to the National Park Service. This distinction is based on massive eruptions over 600,000 years ago. Although the caldera is considered active, scientists believe that it is unlikely to erupt in the next thousand years.

There doesn’t seem to be a direct relationship between these eruptions and the supervolcano, Poland wrote. “The geyser is reflecting processes that are occurring in the shallowest part of the system — tens to perhaps a few hundreds of meters deep, whereas the magmatic system starts about 5 km down. Geysers are supposed to erupt, and so what we’re seeing is normal behavior.” So once again, we are being told this is all normal abnormal activity.

Hello SPAM-LOVERS!!!  I m BACK from being BANNED!!!  

Let's get right to it  -> I'm here SPAM TAG-TEAMING with Wadalt and Mr Hankey and Anunnaki, my best buds (up above)   AND  alternate log-on====Even though all of us "people" here are really  just one crazy obsessed SPAMMER with a bazillion log-on's, Wadalt and Mr Hankey and Anunnaki and I are like bro's -- SPAMMIN' BROs.  

I am out of the Penalty Box and ready to SPAM every thread on ZH like a grease fire in a dumpster.

Yellowstone Lake can be drained to avoid an extinction level event.

Once a channel is dug along the Southeast Arm (a naturally existing drain path), it would take less than six hours for the lake to drain. After that, Yellowstone caldera would be no more dangerous than a sluce volcano with no major explosive potential.

It is surprisng that the elite do not have Yellowstone Lake drained as the shock from an explosion would destroy the underground network of DUMBs in the USA.

Why on God's green earth would you need somebody like Billy Meier to tell you that?  That guy sitting on a hill chasing his own subconscious manifestations.  They wait for direction and he just keeps asking questions.  Its amazing.  Seen it in Sedona all the time.  Didn't these guys ever look into any real scientific research or real studies of phenomenon?  Apparently not.

The word GOD comes from the German word GOTT which means "King of Wisdom".

See here and here for more on the word GOD - consult the hyperlinks at the bottom of each document.

Jmmanuel (the man after whom the name Jesus Christ was created to start the organized religion of Christianity) was himself a King of Wisdom!

Jmmanuel was against all forms of organized religion.

Jmmanuel teaching differentiated between the words "Religion" and "Relegeon".

The acqusition of Wisdom requires cognition + experience + knowledge + re-cognition on a vast array of subject matter.

The word faith requires and equates to cognition + experience + knowledge + re-cognition + wisdom

The word "belief" can never equate to the word "faith" as the word "belief" is limited to the stage of cognition.

You don’t seem to get it

”So once again, we are being told this is all normal abnormal activity.”

clearly USGS is in on it with Comey, Podesta, Clapper, Brennen, Samantha Power and Putin. Oh yeah, and Jews too

go ahead, sheeple, stay asleep while these evil extraterrestrials plot the destruction of earth

just don’t say ole Mac Slavo didn’t give you fair warning (not to mention the former green beret who has been trying to teach you the guerrilla tactics you’ll need post-eruption)

Yellowstone stories are designed to remove attention from other eruptions and those building. 

The disruptive effects of a yellowstone eruption can and will be emulated by a continuous uptick in volcanic activity across the globe. Singular massive blowouts are not the only route to atmospheric contamination and darkening of the sky. If Hawaii intensifies and continues for months on end, that is significant in and of itself. Guatemala is now lighting up. Are any eyes on Tamu Massif? No, because it is declared long extinct by the experts. 

New Madrid is a secondary doom journal. It falls short of what lies beneath the eastern US. When the natural gas fields begin to heat from what wells beneath.....habitations will be rendered desolate. Remaining coal seams will not be untouched. The ground is drying out from heat beneath, not above. The drought is increasing. The same principle is melting ice in other places, and warming oceans in yet others. That changes currents, and the air masses above.

It has happened before and it will happen again.  In 536, a dust cloud gave us two years with no summer.  The cause was either a comet or a super volcano eruption.  Civilization collapsed and the dark ages began.  The story of Hansel and Gretel turned out to be more than a fairy tale.

So, this is something I research a lot of. What is causing this is low solar activity, We are entering a Maunder Minimum solar cycle (period of almost no sunspots and reduced solar output)...this is a natural thing which precedes an Ice Age which lasts for about 100K years. Then you have an Inter-glacial Warm period lasting about 12K years. During the inter-glacial warm period you will have greater solar activity (more sun spots). With lower solar activity, you get increased volcanic activity. Scientists are still not in agreement about what is actually causing this increased volcanic activity, but the geological record shows solar cycles and volcanism are tightly coupled.   I think Yellowstone (along with other volcanoes worldwide) is going to pop and then all of that ash in the atmosphere is going to usher in a new ice age.
