Tales of Yellowstone Super Volcano and Mass U.S. Evacuations

One has to take everything one reads with a grain of salt – however, there is no doubt that natural events have an historical reference point – such as say, weather patterns. If a volcano, or earthquake has a history of eruption, regardless of when the last event occurred, odds are, it will occur again. Therefore, reading the Epoch Times article on the claims that the U.S. has a contingency plan in effect should the Yellowstone Super Volcano erupt, comes as no surprise. The U.S. most likely has contingency plans for almost any given scenario, that is what governments do –although this one appeared (if one is taking it at face value) a tad ridiculous. The premise, should the volcano erupt, 27 states would be impacted and require evacuation – the plan suggests that the residents of say Montana, Texas, etc., would be sent to live in say South Africa or Brazil. (Epoch Times). According to the article, the South African government said no to a 10 year, 10 billion dollar a year plan to build homes for American’s should they need to flee the area, the South African government said no to too many white people – seriously.
When one considers the affected area (27 states), it would make more sense to move those affected individuals (assuming the scenario would come to pass – east into the remaining unaffected states. Perhaps there is the consideration of space, however, moving individuals from mostly red states out of the nation in order to save their lives, leaving the mostly blue states to their own devices may seem political on the onset – but as any of the best laid plans of men (or women) with too much time on their hands (say lunch, breaks, and 7.5 hour days to boot), and a plan to come up with in case the Martians attack – what appears insidious is in reality a big punt.
If one judge the way the various governments within the states (Federal, State, and Local) have reacted to much less severe scare’s than say, a super volcano, then relying on any plans laid out by one’s government may lead to misery –see Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy as examples of ineptitude gone wild.
Although one can’t know when or where the next natural disaster would strike, the Epoch Times also followed the story of animals leaving Yellowstone in drones. video and article – here at Epoch Times One would be more accurate to believe say, the animals when it comes to events of portent in nature. They are prone to intuitively flee danger. Again, though, there were no follow-ups as to the exodus of animals from the park, and whether or not it was just the bison, or were the bears, elk, etc. fast on their heels.
Should one see or hear of an increase in big-foot (probable North American land-ape)(National Geographic) sightings east of the Mississippi, then perhaps, just perhaps something significant would be taking place or, the nation’s water supply met Dr. Timothy Leary.
