Kambridzhsky volcanologist: the world will see a super-volcanic eruption this century

The radius of the explosion in the Yellowstone super-volcano eruption in the U.S.

June 1, 2011 — LONDON — Volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer yesterday warned chance super volcano eruption in the 21st century 1 to 500. Lecturer at Cambridge University Volcanology told the audience: "This may not sound like much, but it is much more likely than an asteroid impact." Events in Japan remind us that we can have a tsunami and earthquake disaster in nuclear power plants, as there is good, and we can have such a chain reaction of events that are actually quite harmful, and they
