Supervolcano eruptions may not be so deadly after all

...If Graf and Lane are right, a supervolcano eruption might not cool the global climate much. But that doesn't make it harmless. Anyone within 100 kilometres of the blast would almost surely be killed by a vast quilt of hot ash and gas smothering the landscape. The key point affecting species' survival would be where this cloud headed. The Indonesian "hobbits" (Homo floresiensis) only survived Toba because the ash cloud travelled west – away from their home island of Flores.

And even if the climate did not change much, there would be global consequences if a supervolcano erupted today. After all, the minor eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 was enough to disrupt air transport for weeks. "If Yellowstone went up, US industry would be very strongly harmed," says Graf.
