Yea it has a limited shelf life, but the same thing was quoted more than 45 years ago, around the time the guys were going to the moon, which eclipsed the Yellowstone story.

Since it has long been expected to erupt sometime in the next few thousand years - and , if anything, an eruption is overdue - it cant erupt earlier than thought ;) 

They mean, it could erupt with less warning than previously thought.

the question is: if there were signs of an eruption within the next 20 years, what would the POTUS do?

I'm more worried about a M8+ earthquake along the San Andreas fault in CA than the Yellowstone caldera "supereruption" prediction. Not sure how much area it will devastate, might be as far away as Salt Lake City, UT or the Canadian border in Montana. Volcanic ashfall clouds can cover most of the mainland US, parts of Canada and even travel across the Atlantic to western Europe.

Drill some holes, use the energy to power the World. spread the energy, take away the energy for an eruption.

There is literally nothing we can do about it. It spans 3 U.S. States if I am not correct. Drilling holes may actually make the problem infinitely worse. Now we get Doomsday scenarios from the academics as well as psychologically damaged individuals. Enjoy your lives, dont hurt anyone or anything and dont worry about the doomsayers. Newsflash you were born to die.

I have been aware of this and my thought is what would happen if there was a shifting in the San Andreas?  Would that increase the threat or reduce it?  If western US was bombed by NK, could that increase the likelihood of an eruption due to the tremors caused by explosions?  We have seen how some studies link fracking to small earthquakes

Yeah, and if several high-yield nukes actually targeted Yellowstone, set to "ground blast"...        :blink:
