Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser erupted a record number of times in 2019

As per the US Geological Survey, the Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone National Park (the world’s tallest active geyser) erupted 47 times this year, the most eruptions recorded in a year. Steamboat’s major eruptions shoot water more than 300 feet into the air. While scientists remain unsure of what’s behind the recent increase in activity, they say the same is no cause for concern.

Its almost as if the increased activity is due to increased activity underground. Hmmm.

Tallest geyser in Yellowstone won't stop erupting, uh anyone seen the supervolcano special? If that were to be the reason would be a real bummer.

Just another example of how the best and brightest humanity has to offer don't have any idea how the planet works, or what causes certain events to take place. It's almost as if humans are in their infancy when it comes to scientific knowledge about the planet, and have little to no ability to comprehend or predict what is going on with our planet. Quote from MSN article “It’s such a big geyser. And the bigger something is, the easier it is to study,” Michael Manga of the University of California, Berkeley, told NPR. “But it also captures people’s imagination. When it got active again there was lots of press and it reminded people that there are fundamental things about the Earth we don’t understand."
