There is an elephant in the room no one has mentioned, ref global warming.
Rephrasing there is a super volcano in the Yellow stone national park, why not use geothermal in the states, they use it in other countries and even small islands, monsterrat for instance.
Question: Texas got rich from oil, why can the states overlapping the yellow stone not tap their geothermal, and get rich cooling the planet, via cheap electricity. ?
Answer: The economy runs on oil, and the politicians think global warming is not an issue they need to be concerned about.
Sea level rise has not happened as was predicted, because the climate change model was a little wrong. This is a an example of scientists starting something along the lines of a religious belief and now has lost the support of a lot of politicians and people, many still believe it, like ether theory . Scientists claimed we know best, and got it wrong, then never publicly retracted or altered the claims. Global climate change and Sea level warming will drive stronger weather on parts of the planet, other areas will have milder weather, it could all just be cyclical, has any one checked the claims of oil companies and lobby groups who advise politicians, and pay huge sums into election campaigns.
