Supervolcano could kill 100 million people

A supervolcano beneath Japan is beginning to wake from a 7000-year slumber and researchers say it could kill some 100 million people.

Located 50km south of Japan's most southern main island Kyushu, the volcano named Kikai is showing signiifcant signs of activity with the seabed being forced upwards 610 metres by more than 31 cubic kilometres of lava.

There is ample evidence according to Japanese volcanologists that Kikai erupted some 7000 years ago, releasing 500 cubic kilometres of magma. Other evidence also suggests super-eruptions occured 95,000 years ago and 140,000 years ago.

There is about a 1 per cent chance of a "catastrophic" eruption in the next 100 years according to volcanologist Yoshiyuku Tatsumi.

Isnt this North Korea's neuclear testing zone?? Is Kim trying to pour Shitaki on Japan????

I hope this happens because I would like to see the population reduced and I would like to depart with a large bang.

No more Jap cars or Korean means bring back Fords..

I agree we need to get rid of 100 million people but not convinced about the other part of your comment.

I wonder would you feel the same if the volcano was close to you.

Wasn't the ideal amount of people supposed to be 2 billion on the planet?

What an incredibly miserable way to spend your life ..

You mean driving Fords?

Yes of course or any American car . But I suppose the Mustang  converable would make a nice Dolly Bird pick up .

 

Better be quick or it will miss me. What will happen to my super..ha ha

Suppose we could make a whole list of things that might happen in the next hundred years .

The world population was estimated to have reached 7.6 billion as of December 2017. The United Nations estimates it will further increase to 11.8 billion by the year 2100.

Nature needs to fight back against human vermin

Why?

We have arranged same sex marriage and currently curtailing the agressive nature of men pursuing women, what more can we do? 

I would not wish this to happen because the whole world will be affected by the toxic fumes into the atmosphere adding more problems to the climate. As far as world population goes, it has already been predicted that the population will plateau. https://www.geek.com/.../the-education-effect-global-population-to-plateau-by-2070-16.
