YOU may be aware that during our long geographic and volcanic history super volcanoes have erupted.
These are massive volcanoes which have almost wiped out life on Earth. Yellowstone Park in America is a huge crater from one of these super volcanoes. Imagine the cross section of earth where Yellowstone is situated, 900 miles from the Pacific ocean.
It is probably impossible but who knows in the future if maybe we could drill beneath the Earth's crust to release the pressure of magma into the Pacific, we could possibly take the pressure off Yellowstone and prevent the threat of extinction.
This is maybe completely impossible to do but never give up hope.
Oil companies - why not drill for magma anyway? Create new islands for wildlife and tourism and possibly new land in the future for an expanding population. They say you can't make any more land but you might be able to now. When oil does become redundant this new island making business might just keep drilling companies from going bust. There might also be minerals and ore in this magma which could be used in all sorts of industry.
