I heard this on the news early this morning and it's been in the papers and on websites I think.
Scientists have said that Yellowstone National Park in the USA, which runs through many states is a massive volcano that's set to erupt! If it erupted it would produce enough lava to cover the whole of the USA. The amount of ash in the atmosphere would block out the sun and cause a natural neculear winter Â :-/
Here's the story on AOL:
Its amazing how many doom and gloom stories have started to pop up of recent. I do not know the exact cause of world destruction, all I know is it will happen one day and we need to prepare, but the bigger questions is... is it possible to prepare for such an event?

Man there is always somthing to worry about economy, war, and now super volcanos I don't think we can prepare, I guess we just have to have faith and hope for the best. If this was a really serious threat mabey we could make a trench leading to the grand canyon and ultimately to the ocean for the lava but I don't have any ideas for the gas and ash.
I don't believe no Volcano will ever destroy the Earth. I don't want to go into the Religious thing but everything has a moment and the Creator will decide that. For years and years we have heard of volcanos, and other phenomenons destroying the Earth and stuff and we still here ;)

We should prepare!!! If we don't prepare at all, what happens if we are on the "outskirts" of this event... and we survive? How do we live if we have nothing to live off of? To just say "oh, it's too big! we'll all die! prepare for the end!" is sort of ridiculous. Prepare to LIVE after surviving the event. Prepare to help others to LIVE. Prepare to LEAD, if necessary.
We can't prepare for every eventuality, but we can do the best we can with what we have. Learn how to grow and preserve your own food. Learn how to build a fire. Learn how to cook over that fire. Learn how to build a temporary shelter. Learn how to live without electricity or gas or cars or supermarkets. It just might come in handy after this volcano erupts and wipes out massive swaths of the U.S. :)
In my opinion, of course.
