Thread: Its gonna blooooooooooooooooow!

    Cool, although from what I read they said it should be a rather small eruption as far as eruptions go. I've seen 3 volcanic eruptions. Mt. Redoubt twice (once was a nasty one where it blew away half it's top) and Mt. Spur erupted on my birthday a few years back.. talk about a quick ending to a birthday party lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    Hope y'all don't get dumped on by ash though. When Redoubt erupted there was so much ash it was dark as night out at noon.. looked like it was snowing grey..
    That stuff is terrible for people with breathing problems (like asthma) and bad for cars, etc.

    so a volcano couldn't ruin the wolrd well, that's what almost got humans extinct a long while ago!!! The world population decreased to only thousands! it's not known exactly how many, but there are some estimates that at minimum (I think) it went to 3, 000 humans in THE WHOLE WORLD, and maximum of 11, 000. (or something like that...)
    oh... and what volcano caused that kind of "horrible" thing? a supervolcano... there's one right under yellowstone park. It would sent HUGE amts. of ash into the atmosphere (TRILLIONS OF TRILLIONS of tons) and that would cause a "volcanic winter" over the whole world.
    and an 8 foot wave is NOT close to a tsunami. let alone a megatsunami. a regular tsunami is like the one that hit hawaii. a megatsunami is MUCH bigger.

    I meant 80 foot wave there...

    No one REALLY knows if thats what happened to humans, and i highly doubt it... are you thinking of the little island in the mediterranean sea (starts with an A...) that had a volcano that erupted and killed everyone on the island?

    Also, if a mod could change it to "shes gonna bloooooooooooooow" it would make the topic a little more humorous [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    not only on the island... and there's proof.
    first of all, our mitochondrial DNA (passed from mom to children) shows that at about the same time of the explosion of the supervolcano, the world population really decreased. The polar ice also shows that there composition of the atmosphere changed around the world at that time, there was great fammon in europe and other places b/c of abnormal cold temps, etc...
    and you mean that island that is believed to have been the base for atlantis? no... that was a tiny volcano :P
    a supervolcano is HUGE!

    nonono not atlantis...

    And it didnt happen long ago anyways...(atlantis and this other island) MAYBE 2000 years ago... Every few hundred years something happens to humans that drasticly decreases the population (ie bubonic plague, potatoe blights, etc) And whos to say thats not what happened?

    but we're talking about the WORLD population! all you've said are localized things! the black plague was only in europe (and not ALL europe right?). it left alone asia, the americas, and africa.
    the island in the mediterranean only affected some of the mediterranian around it. ... and I've got no clue what that potatoe thing is.
    the only thing that could have happened w/ all the evidence is a supervolcano.
