|If a really big volcano were to blow (Yellowstone, anyone?), we might face a full *year* of ash falling from the sky, plus unusual darkness even at noon. There was such an eruption in 535 A.D., and the famine that ensued killed 100,000 people in Constantinople. In the early aftermath, the sky was dark even at noon.|
Yellowstone would wipe a huge part of the U.S. and Canada off the map. It would affect areas as far away as Texas.
The two neighboring volcanoes in Iceland do varying amounts of damage. In the early 1780s, they did a nasty job on the world's climate, but as we know, things recovered.
