Conspiracy theories about an imminent eruption of the Yellowstone super-volcano are a dime-a-dozen. For years, amateurs on YouTube declare the end is near and it's happened again. It's a great example of how these theories start and why they're wrong.
My family has visited Yellowstone National Park several times over the years and it's hard to imagine that there was a raging super-volcano underneath our feet. A recent video makes that seem a lot more real showing how hot the ground of Yellowstone is on a thermal camera.
Funny things happen when you try to constantly educate yourself. We know that there is a super-volcano in Yellowstone, but now I've learned there's also one in Utah and that's there's probably nothing to worry about. "Probably" is a very key word.
Thanks to movies and pop culture, the Yellowstone super-volcano in our backyard gets all the press from sensationalistic theories about the end of the world. The truth is there is a much more dangerous super-volcano and it's not Yellowstone. It's Campi Flegrei.
