NORTH KOREA Nuclear Tests To Ignite Super Volcano Set To Kill Thousands
Kim Jong-un could ignite Mount Paektu eruption
North Korea is on the brink of destroying itself by sparking a huge Volcanic eruption as a result of their nuclear tests.
The hermit kingdoms reckless tests of Nuclear Weapons could push Mount Paektu, which is located between China and North Korea, to release a devastating eruption according to experts.
Specialists and experts say the energy from Kim Jong un nuclear weapons is close to triggering a huge volcanic eruption in Paektu that would kill thousands of North Koreans and Chinese.
The express reports: It is where the country’s founder Kim il-Sung camped out during the Korean War and where his son Kim Jong-il claimed he was born - although he was actually born in Siberia.
A new problem may erupt: when North Korea tests a nuclear weapon, specialists say the energy could trigger a volcanic eruption in Paektu. That could be a huge disaster, killing thousands in North Korea and on the Chinese side too
However, the holy site may actually prove to be the country’s worst enemy if Kim’s desperate attempts to draw level with the USA and South Korea continue.
Scientists warn thousands could die in North Korea and China if the volcano were to erupt, based on historic events.
The mountain exploded in 946 AD, one of the most powerful volcanoes to explode in the last 5,000 years. Ash covered around 1.5 million square miles of the surrounding area and sent a huge amount of debris into the air.
Scientists warn a repeat event sparked by a nuclear test could have dire consequences as far away as Australia.
Lloyd Hamilton, a retired professor of geology, issued the dire prediction to Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop warning her of an eruption at Paektu mountain.
Mr Hamilton wrote in an email: “Professor Hiromitsu Taniguchi from Tohoku University claims that there is a 99 per cent chance of the Mount Paektu volcano in North Korea erupting some time in the next 15 years.

“It erupted in 946 A.D killing 71,000 to 92,000 people in North Korea, China, Russia and Japan.
“I expect Australia would be happy to agree not to aggressively trigger an eruption of Mount Paektu if North Korea agreed to stop threatening us with its nuclear bombs, and totally removed the threat.”
