Anybody who thinks that modern people who live paycheck-to-paycheck are in better shape than our ancestors are out of their minds. If our ancestors were snowed in, they burned wood in a fireplace to keep their homes heated. Modern people need heating oil every winter and if they can't afford it, they will die in coming climate shifts.
Our ancestors had larders. Modern people have nothing. If food becomes too expensive, they will starve to death.
Anyone who thinks that a supervolcano blowing would be a minor inconvenience is unfamiliar with the facts. It would be like McCarthy's THE ROAD times a thousand.
It's getting cold on this planet. A supervolcano will speed up what is already happening naturally everywhere. It will simply kick the process into overdrive.
Don't listen to "leaders" and "authority figures" who were not smart enough to see this coming and prepare for it. Such "leaders" are not the men for the job. The sooner people stop listening to the dysgenic clowns in power, the sooner they will evolve proper leadership with their own interests in mind. We've heard from the runts of the litter and the ugly puppies nobody wanted, time to stop giving them an audience. They had their chance, they shot their wad and clearly have no idea what is going on. Start thinking for yourself because they can't think at all, period.
