This really is terrifying. North Korea and asteroids are small potatoes compared to a damn supervolcano eruption.

Say what you will about global warming, but global cooling is MUCH worse. Which is what we'll get if this thing erupts. I say triple NASA's budget if they can ensure this global catastrophe be prevented.

So risk setting off a disaster so you can make power you can sell, yeah this doesn't sound like an excuse to make money at all. I like how we're conveniently at the 600,00 year mark as well.

It would be a win-win-win. What's the problem? NASA can use the money to finance itself. It's not burning fossil fuels. It prevents another supervolcano.
