"Throughout the last two years, there have been unsettling—even if largely unnoticed by the mainstream media—news from Yellowstone. In January, the Idaho Observer reported that park rangers closed down the entire Norris Geyser Basin “because of deformation of the land and excessive high ground temperatures.” One area in the basin had bulged upward five inches since 1996, with the ground temperature on that bulge reaching over 200 degrees in 2003.
“Everything in this area is dying,” stated the Idaho Observer, “the trees, flowers, grass and shrubs… The animals are literally migrating out of the park.” In late July 2003, geologists had discovered a 100-feet bulge at the bottom of Yellowstone Lake, a cold-water mountain lake. In January, the water temperature reached 88 degrees; according to the IO, it “is now closed to the public. It is filled with dead fish floating everywhere. The same is true of the Yellowstone river and most of the other streams in the Park.”As the Helena Air describes, the Yellowstone Volcano Interpretive center was given 1 million dollars to disseminate informaion about the Super Volcano in Yellowstone - likely to quell fears of an eruption rather than to educate. This allocation of funding to disseminate ideas and info concerning Yellowstone stands at odds with recent political manoueverings by the likes of Hillary Clinton, who failed to to skew Park budgets such that key sites are open to terrorist attacks.
