Recent newscasts have featured the discovery that the magma chamber beneath Yellowstone National Park is much larger than previously known. In celebration of that discovery, I watched the BBC production of Supervolcano, a two part series. The production was well based in "science" but the fear of such a cataclysmic event is not something that is going to disturb me. I look on those types of hand-wringing as irrelevant to my daily life. If there is a volcano or earthquake or whatever, I will either die or survive. How much different is that from driving almost every day in Utah Valley traffic?
