One of the apocalyptic scenarios put forth for December 21, 2012 (the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar) was an eruption of the supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park, causing a sort of “nuclear winter.” In the wake of the largest volcanic eruption at Yellowstone in 34 years (see report from Reuters), there are reports of a mass exodus of the animals living in the park, triggering fears of a true supervolcano eruption of the type envisioned for 2012.

A series of smaller quakes have hit the region over the past few weeks, and those quakes have been linked to the recent 5.1 magnitude quake (and aftershocks) that hit in the Los Angeles region.
Tom Lupshu, who describes himself as a “noted Ohio survivalist and search-and-rescue expert,” said on YouTube that nearly one quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park are missing, according to the annual winter count…
