Anak-Krakatoa, the new volcano, that took the place of the original Krakatoa, has had increased activity and is said to erupt soon with cataclismic force that will shake the world.

Anak Krakatoa means "Child of Krakatoa". Just saying.

Krakatoa is just a baby, also "shake the world" is impossible for any volcano to accomplish.

I would accept:

-Put us into a year long winter
-Create localized earthquakes
-Kill a few thousand people
-Give countries round the world pretty sunrise/sunsets

Krakatoa is now a caldera due to the 1880's eruption, that is a large hole in the ground where what used to be the volcano got blown to smithereens. Yellowstone, Lake Taupo, etc are also caldera's.

In the case of Krakatoa due to it being an island initially the hole is now mostly just sea, with just one wall of the caldera left above sea level to form an island.

Since the 1880's the volcanic activity hasn't stopped it has continues in the form of building a small basaltic cone in the centre of the caldera (this is pretty common). This small cone has now reached above sea level and forms an island. This is what's known as the "son of Krakatoa"

And that concludes today's geology lesson.

Although cool fact: the original eruption was when humans learned conclusively that pyroclastic flows can travel over water!

That's fascinating, hal.

But Krakatoa, really? Last year all the end of the world nutters on the Finnish parenting forum I sometimes (in a bout of masochism) check out were obsessively following the Yellowstone meter readings. And now you're saying I was preparing myself for the wrong doomsday? Pfft.

i begin to think the Creator is a bit obsessed with the end of the world... can i point out that it would take an AWFUL lot to end the world. there might be an end to the human race's 'supremacy' sooner or later, in fact there's bound to be, but the earth is gonna be Just Fiiiiiiiiiiiine.

Yeah Krakatoa isn't really a big deal, yellowstone is the doom seekers usual haunt and it is a "supervolcano" that is larger than the usual volcano, just like Tambora, or Lake Taupo if they blow it will be big with problems in the local vicinities but not world ending.

It's been a mild winter, so a lot of my friends and family have been talking about how climate change is going to wipe out all life on earth.

It's going to/does suck, but all life on earth? Have these people not met a tardigrade?

Anak-Krakatoa rose from the waters along the north shore of the original Krakatoa so yes, the old Krakatoa is still there but it is no longer active and has been dormant for 130 years or so.

Personally, and this is a thought based on pure opinion but, I think we need to get off of Earth and at least establish a colony on the moon so if we go down then we will have a backup plan. The problem with that is that the moon has no protection against radiation coming from the sun so that would be a problem. We would also have to transport a constant flow of food to the moon base and that would be expensive. It's just so hard to think about things like that. If we are not prepared for doomsday then we will be wiped out completely. What if we built an underwater colony to kind of seperate that from the surface so maybe those down there would possibly survive something that would end the surface life. I get that idea because the only things that survived the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs were a handful of surface animals and millions and millions of underwater creatures and if they survived it then I'm sure we can too if we actually did it.

I think it's our best chance of surviving something like that. Confused

Prior to the advent of civilization, humans survived innumerable catastrophes by being clever. I'm not saying that we shouldn't find longer-term solutions than just bunkers for the rich, but I'd much rather we focus on the actual disasters - world hunger, malaria, lack of access to basic medical care, lack of access to drinking water, religious and political strife - rather than focusing on ones that haven't happen yet.

That's the problem with the World!!! We all want to wait until something happens but then it's faaaaaar tooooo late and then there is no chance!!! should we not atleast try to imagine this happening and put out the idea for others to decide what they think. PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW!!!

For example -my neighborhoods entrance has a terrible pull out and we have tried to petition for a sign to be put in to make cars watch out for cars that are pulling out of our subdivision but do you know what the police told us? THEY TOLD US NOTHING WILL BE DONE UNTIL SOMEONE IS KILLED AT THE TURN!!! THAT'S COMPLETELY OUTRAGEOUSE!!! MAYBE AFTER I KILL THE GUY THAT SAID THAT AND THE TURN COSTS TWO LIVES THEN MAYBE THEY WILL PUT UP A SIGN!!! LIKE IT'S SO HARD TO PUT A #$%&@! SIGN!!! and someone has to die to justify the placement of a fucking sign????!!!! that's sooooooo FUCKING RETARDED BUT I COULD EXPECT NO LESS FROM OUR STUPID FUCKING GOVERNMENT!
