After new disturbing footage showing the Yellowstone caldera at the Yellowstone National Park simmering with steam and ash raised fears that the supervolcano could be about to erupt catastrophically, the doomsday blogosphere has exploded with fear-mongering speculation about impending doom. Allegations are making the rounds that the global elite knowing something the rest of us don’t know have recently stepped up preparation for imminent global catastrophe by acquiring luxury survival bunkers.
Some sources in the conspiracy theory blogosphere — the so-called “alternative news media” — claim that the elite have information about an impending global disaster and are deliberately withholding the information from the public to prevent mass panic that could hinder their secret preparation to survive the apocalypse.
Scientific experts such as Roger Bilham, geophysicist at the University of Colorado, appear to have substantiated ongoing conspiracy theory speculation with recent comments that the world is experiencing potentially catastrophic spike in global seismic activity that raises legitimate concerns that renewed activity at Yellowstone could be sign of an imminent eruption.
Footage uploaded to YouTube on April 15, 2016, by user Kat Martin2016, showing the Yellowstone supervolcano simmering with suppressed activity, emerges as the world witnesses a dramatic upsurge in seismic activity in the notorious region known ominously as the Ring of Fire, spanning the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean. In the last two weeks there have been a series of major earthquakes, with Japan and Ecuador experiencing major events on Saturday, April 16, 2016. There have also been a series of volcanic eruptions indicating a level of upsurge in global seismic activity not seen in recent history.
While experts have hitherto attempted to allay fears, saying that the probability of a major eruption of Yellowstone in the foreseeable future was very small, recent events have raised fears about the supervolcano sitting on top of a massive reserve of magma, capable of generating a volcanic eruption that could cause global devastation.
The last super-eruption of Yellowstone occurred about 640,000 years ago, followed by minor eruptions — such as one that occurred about 150,000 years — and a lava flow that occurred only about 70,000 years ago.
Experts say a new major eruption of Yellowstone could be about 2,000 times as powerful as Washington’s Mount St. Helens’ 1980 eruption. A major eruption of Yellowstone could devastate the northwest of the U.S. and make about two-thirds of the country uninhabitable. Spewing massive quantities of ash, lava, and rock into the atmosphere, a major eruption could wipe out an area about 100 miles radius. Outside the 100-mile death zone, a deadly rain of volcanic ash could pile up 10-feet deep over an area up to 1000 miles radius, causing mass death (see YouTube below). The effect of the ash released into the atmosphere would be felt globally, blocking out the sun and causing a global winter with global average temperatures plunging several degrees. The drop in temperatures would lead to catastrophic disruption of global food production and mass death.
Many observers point out that the fact that Yellowstone poses the greatest danger to the Unites States and the rest of world, more than the risk of an asteroid or meteor, has been downplayed by the authorities.
The conspiracy theory blogosphere came alive recently with multiple reports that the urgency and gravity of the threat posed by the recent upsurge in global seismic activity, which the U.S. government has been trying to downplay, was indicated by President Vladimir Putin’s recent deployment of Russian troops in the country’s Eastern Military District. The troops were allegedly deployed in preparation for devastating earthquakes and tsunamis that could hit the Kamchatka peninsula in the next few weeks.
According to the reports circulating widely in the conspiracy theory blogosphere, the Russian defense ministry also issued orders to officials in the Far East Pacific Ocean region of the country to come to Moscow on April 27 for a conference where preparations for a major natural disaster would be discussed.
The Russian government also reportedly stated the high risk of a “mega earthquake” hitting the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
The latest deployments of troops by the Russian authorities, according to reports in the conspiracy theory blogosphere, were in response to warnings by Mehran Keshe — a controversial figure revered in some online circles as an engineer who invented a revolutionary technology called “Magrav technology” — that the earthquake that recently hit the Kingdom of Tonga could be the signal of an imminent “catastrophic alignment” of the Pacific Plate.
Keshe reportedly first gave a warning in October last year when he raised alarm about imminent “world-changing mega-tremors with power to split up continents.” His predictions began to be fulfilled only three months later when the Kamchatka Peninsula and Southern Alaska were hit by major earthquakes measuring 7.1 and 7.3 respectively, according to “alternative media” sources.
The apparent fulfillment of the predictions reportedly spurred Putin to act. He began deploying troops in the Eastern Military Districts in preparation for disaster. Further confirmation of Keshe’s prediction came in recent weeks when several powerful earthquakes in the Ring Of Fire killed hundreds and left tens of thousands homeless.
Roger Bilham, a highly respected professor of geological sciences and geophysicist at the University of Colorado, also warned that the recent earthquakes could herald imminent mega earthquakes of magnitude 8.0 and above.
“Current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude.”
According to analysts, fulfillment of Bilham’s prediction would mean “disaster of historic proportions.” A single 8.0 magnitude earthquake in a densely populated area of North America would lead to loss of millions of lives.
According to some “alternative news” sources, the global elite have stepped up preparations to survive the anticipated catastrophic natural disasters. High net worth individuals (see video below) have recently started moving away from major urban centers around the world to areas where they have access to underground luxury survival bunkers.
One of the companies raking in huge profits from the latest feverish efforts by the elite to survive the coming apocalypse was recently identified as Vivos. The company builds facilities exclusively for the “protection of high net worth individuals” who want to survive the coming apocalypse in which “millions will perish.”
Online reports reveal that one of the biggest of such facilities in the world is Europa One, located in Germany. The facility is described as “one of the most fortified and massive underground survival shelters on Earth, deep below a limestone mountain” and is “safely secured from the general public, behind sealed and secured walls, gates and blast doors.”
