An Impossible Volcanic Eruption
In Volcano, mammals from the Pleistocene era plot against modern humans. It’s a bad day in Los Angeles when the mammals generate a supervolcano in the La Brea Tar Pits. To try and save the day, seismologist Amy Barnes joins forces with Mike Roark. It’s a race against the clock and ancient mammals who try to use science to destroy humankind. We’ll let you in on a little secret, though. The scientific facts in the movie are completely unreal, which will likely ruin the movie Volcano for you. If you thought a super volcano could randomly appear in the middle of a huge city, we’ll tell you otherwise. The San Andreas Fault, which travels through the west coast, is only a fault line. The Pacific Plate and North American plate simply slide past each other. To form a volcano like the one in the movie, one plate needs to slide underneath another and move the magma, buried beneath the Earth, to the surface. The plates in the movie do not do this, much to our dismay (Ranker).
