According to the Daily Mail, there is a (tiny) risk of Yellowstone Park being the centre of a huge volcanic eruption, with the direst of consequences. As a handy comparison, they described the shocking events of 200 years ago:
A huge cloud of ash thousands of miles across would also likely cause a year-long winter, say the study authors. The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in the Pacific produced an ash cloud tens of miles across caused ‘a year without a summer’ across the globe with snowfall in the North Eastern United States in June.
My God, surely not, ‘a year without a summer’. Catastrophe.
I blame the SNP.
