Well, this is not reassuring. Scientists have determined that the time between explosive volcanic âEUR~super-eruptionsâEUR(TM) is actually much less than previously thought.

Yes, but humans are tough critters, and we will survive the next one. We'll have plenty of warning - as long as we know the right signs to heed.

Civilization, though, might not. That is why we need Knowledge Arks, repositories of our accumulated science and culture to preserve what we have learned and created in case of a calamity so devastating that it ends civilization as we know it. Not only should we save our greatest achievements in science and the arts, we also want it easy for our descendants to rebuild.

They are a big threat not not as big as Trump and his anal army

STARS to Freya for her ''knowledge repository" comments. I've been thinking that removing humanity would be good for the planet.
