If yellowstone erupted would we really get sent back into the stone age? I know all the sulphure dioxide would cool the planet, but really how dangerous is a yellowstone eruption and what are the effects? And what could we do to stop it from erupting/ clearing up the effects after eruption

Yellowstone is a myth perpetuated by the big oil companies and president Bush.

sorry you got such unhelpful responses thus far.

 

The cooling effect of yellowstone would likely be short lived, but it would be enough combined with ash deposited in the high winds that would fall and coat so much of the hemispheres that you could reasonably expect something like an amped up Dust bowl situation. The cold and ash would crush crops through the first year and into the second, then the ash in the soil would make for difficult growing for a couple years after that, not to mention the actual dust storms and what not chocking livestock and destroying machinery.

 

For the better part of a decade you could likely see the entire region turn into a desert and it would take a monumental effort to bring the region back to life and a longer time still before it could produce food supplies enough for the country and the exports we currently produce from that region.

 

The disruption to cross country travel and shipping, and the food supply being devestated would likely be a massive blow to our abilities as a nation to hold it together, and it would likely be a strain on the rest of the planet too but for a shorter time and less severe.

 

But stone age? nah, you'd have to be an idiot on a pretty massive scale to not be able to maintain resonably modern societies. Underground hydroponic gardening warehouses for starters. Air travel after the ash clouds settle. wireless communications and recycling and salvage of ruined machinery.

 

It'd be a harsh reset like we have no comparison to in modern history. Likely equivalent to the plague, the two world wars and the depression all in one for how social institutions would just fail and communities would be destroyed or displaced, borders would become jumbled and frantic innovation would change how we meet the needs of our populations.
