Who knows. I'm not saying this is it, but when Mother Nature does decide to level us, I'm thinking it will be abruptly.

I’m all for anything that breaks up the monotony of daily boredom and greed in the world. I never like to get my hopes up for world-changing events though, because I’m always disappointed when nothing happens or when things inevitably just go back to the status quo. If I can’t see full scale of nuclear war or complete societal collapse during my lifetime, I at least want to witness either a massive planetary impact or an eruption with global effects. A giant tsunami wouldn’t hurt either. Something FFS 😒

Oh cool! I remember when the last Icelandic volcano with the unpronounceable name erupted about ten years ago and all flights in Europe were grounded for something like the days. My boss was in Europe when it happened and it gave us all a very nice ten day reprieve!

I was just watching a program about the formation of Earth.
Too many volcanic eruptions at once blanket the ozone layer with methane and carbon dioxide , which deflect the sun’s warmth and cause centuries long ice ages.
Keep your sweaters handy. And stock up on canned goods. 90% of plant and animal life will go extinct.

"Nova" on PBS., just a couple of weeks ago.
It blew my mind (get it? "blew") to learn that I was wrong.
I just assumed that Space, when Earth was created, basically decided, "Oh, and Earth? Here. Over time, I'll dole out a little troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere and exosphere. Those will help with that life-creating thingy."
But no. All of that was created by Earth!
I coulda fell out of my Barca-lounger.

An Icelandic volcanic eruption in the late 18th century led to an extended cold period and famine in Europe which may have contributed to the French Revolution.
