My Survival Thriller Is Out!

Catastrophe is coming. It's not if. It's when.

Catastrophe is coming. It’s not if. It’s when.

Yellowstone-A Fall From Grace has been released on Amazon, Kindle, and Create Space. Yellowstone erupts every 600,000 years.That time passed years ago. The United States government isn’t prepared for this disaster or any other–natural or terrorist. When catastrophe occurs, preppers and survival groups with a year’s supply of the necessities live longer than most. Common citizens die by the millions, but not before suffering in a kill-or-be-killed world.

When an ash layer from 100 foot to 10 foot deep spreads up to 1,000 miles from the volcano, leaving ten of our states completely uninhabitable, Mary Kenton, an American Indian, and her survivalist husband, B.K., flee with their friends to their encampment, equipped to wait out the carnage, and emerge to help restore what is left of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the Southern States of America. The danger they face comes from former neighbors, looters, rapists, and migrants fleeing starvation. America’s enemies launch terrorist attacks and form mobs bent on taking control of what’s left of the United States, the world’s largest nuclear power.

Impossible? Think again!  It’s not if. It’s when.

Catastrophe: The U.S. Isn’t Prepared.

It's not if. It's when.

It’s not if. It’s when.

The last eruption of Yellowstone’s volcano covered the ground with ejecta hundreds of feet deep at the source and as deep as ten feet as far away as Columbia, Missouri. This would be a catastrophe, if the eruption happens again. Imagine living in Lymon, Colorado, when Yellowstone blows. Within hours, heavy ash begins to fall. You try to drive away in your car, but the moving parts clog up after ten minutes or so and the roads become impossible to drive on. Within a day, twenty feet of ash covers the entire State of Colorado and beyond.

The air grits up and darkness covers the northern states of America at noon. Even as far away as New York City, the sky is dim and the particles in the air are hazardous to your health. Its free crystalline silicone. The stuff that causes Black Lung. Except you’re receiving a far more lethal dose than a mine worker gets even after 20 years in the mines, and you don’t have a mask sufficient enough to protect yourself.

People in the non-ash zones panic. People in the heavy ash zones are dead or dying. Then the looting begins. Frantic relatives try to reach loved ones. Heighten activity brings down the electrical grid, leaving the east coast in darkness. Worldwide planes can’t fly. Telecommunications go out. The top of the ash plume is over 22 miles high afloat over the earth. This happens on the first day of what could be months of eruptions.

Today’s headlines talk about earthquakes in Iceland predicting future volcanic eruptions. The Iceland volcanoes are terrible, but predictable and localized compared to Yellowstone. Yellowstone’s volcano sits within the bowels of the earth, waiting to vomit out destruction.

In recent years, the ground around the Yellowstone area has risen several inches. In places the roads are melting. There have been sightings of Buffalo leaving the area, not that it well help them. Another eruption is years overdue. America is not prepared, as if preparation could stop the event from occurring. But it might save the population not in immediate danger.

Once the catastrophe occurs, in the rest of the world, the panic grows. America becomes a battlefield. Illegal immigrants flood through our southern unaffected borders. But that is a topic for the next article. Rioting!

 

Yellowstone-We’re not prepared!

The Next Threat to America

The Next Threat to America

The America I see today isn’t the America I was born into. We are not prepared for any emergency. Sadly, my generation was a part of its downfall. Isis radicals give no quarter to the beliefs of others. They are terrorists who offer you these choices: Convert to radical Islam, pay us a tribute to stay, leave, or be beheaded. They commit themselves to their brand of religion. The America of my father’s would have gone to war to the death to defeat this radical ideology.

Americans of today are ostriches, heads in the sand and no stomach to fight against tyranny. Now consider an America crippled by the Yellowstone Volcano, the failure of our infrastructure, and the breakdown of moral authority. Isis, and other enemies, will leap to deal the final blow. Imagine early in the morning, a terrorist, who crossed the border from Canada without being checked, slips into what is left of the Wall Street District and explodes a dirty bomb. Another walks down Pennsylvania Avenue and explodes another bomb. American leadership and financial prowess disappears in seconds and the world mourns over the fall of the greatest country on the face of the earth.

The sad part is the Yellowstone Volcano isn’t the culprit, our lack of preparedness is. A strong nation with strong principles can survive even a catastrophe like Yellowstone. A strong nation, like America was in World War II, would rise from the ashes and become even stronger. But that nation of the 1940’s believed in God. That nation united around a single purpose. To destroy evil empires and Fascists. I see no will to stand up for our beliefs today. I see no unified beliefs to defend. If our government had some, we would not be bickering ourselves into inaction, as we are today.

Sadly, an event such as the eruption of the Yellowstone Volcano will bring America down if we do not change as a people now. Divided we do fall. Fix the infrastructure, Today! Decide what America stands for. Be as passionate about preserving the American way of life, as Isis is about establishing theirs. Or Yellowstone or not, America will fall under the weight of division, greed, and moral decline. We don’t need a Yellowstone to destroy us.

Look for my new novel about the Yellowstone eruption coming out in the Fall of 2015, and pray you are still around to read it..

The Yellowstone Volcano – America’s Next Challenge?

2015 Could This Be The Harbinger's Prediction?

2015 Could This Be The Harbinger’s Prediction?

Authors like myself who write Faction – Thrillers out of the headlines – look for the next big thing. My research says the Yellowstone Volcano just might be it. Yes, silly Hollywood movies depict this event as farcical. And silly they are.

What would happen if the unthinkable did occur? No, not the end of the world. But maybe the end of America as we know it. I’m researching a novel on this possibility, and I thought I might intrigue you with some facts.

If the Yellowstone volcano were to erupt, as it has every 600,000 years or so, are we prepared? Facts: Some roads in Yellowstone are melting. Buffalo are leaving the park. Not the Big One scientists say, but . . .

At best nothing will occur in our lifetime. At worst, ten foot deep ash could cover an area 1,000 kilometers from the park, with millions dead and would bring on a mini Ice Age lasting a few years.

Why be concerned? For many reasons, the first of which is America’s infrastructure. Infrastructure is critical to supporting modern societies, particularly in urban areas, where high population densities create high demand for networks and services, roads, clean water, lifeline services upon which we depend for our health, education, transportation and social networking.

Volcanic ash fall events disrupt and damage the infrastructure upon which society depends. The recent eruptions in Iceland and Mount St. Helens have illustrated the vulnerability of urban areas that received only a few millimeters or centimeters of volcanic ash. Disruption of transportation, electricity, water, sewage and storm water systems. The costs in life and business disruption, replacement of damaged parts and insurance losses were staggering. Ash fall impacts on critical infrastructure can also cause multiple knock-on effects, which may disrupt many sectors and services.

Note: The Big One would be a thousand Mount St. Helens

Volcanic ash fall is physically, socially, and economically disruptive. Volcanic ash can affect areas many hundreds of kilometers from the source, and cause disruptions and losses in a wide variety of different infrastructure sectors, depending on ash fall thickness, duration, grain size, and chemistry.

People in Iceland live with their volcanoes as a fact of life. Do we? Is America’s infrastructure prepared to withstand an eruption of the Yellowstone Volcano. I maintain it is not prepared for even minor problems like a Category 4 Hurricane.

More information to follow. Here is where my devilish minds thinks Scare them. Scare them out of their wits. I’ll try to do that next time.
