Scientists from Cambridge University in England warned that the Marapi Volcano in Indonesia is about to erupt and this could cause the collapse of the global economy. The volcano is located just a few kilometers from the Strait of Malacca, defined as the world’s transit point, and ships of grain, oil and commodities pass through the water channel annually, accounting for about 50 percent of global trade. Experts also said that a possible eruption of the volcano will cause sudden changes in the climate, leading to great food and crop shortages.
Located in Indonesia, Marapi Volcano is more than 9,000 meters long and is located a few kilometers from the Strait of Malacca, which accounts for 40 percent of global trade.
THE WORLD WILL BE COVERED IN A VOLCANIC WINTER FOR THREE YEARS
Experts know that the eruption of this volcano will throw a cloud of ash 30 km up and cover the Earth with a volcanic winter for three years.
IT WILL COST THE WORLD 2.51 TRILLION DOLLARS
The dramatic drop in temperature from the eruption of Mount Marapi will lead to global food shortages, inflation and climate anomalies, according to a serious warning from researchers at the University of Cambridge. All these disasters will cost the world an estimated 2.51 trillion dollars.
However, the last major eruption at Marapi Volcano occurred on May 29, 2006, which triggered a catastrophic 6.1 magnitude earthquake that killed at least 3,000 people.
Scientists from the University of Cambridge have released a report detailing possible doomsday scenarios for a massive eruption at Marapi Volcano.
Accordingly, the ash cloud from the volcano will first be transported kilometers away to various airports in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, stopping all aviation activities. This will halt tourism in all countries that will lose billions of dollars.
Lara Mani, an expert at Cambridge University’s Center for Existential Risk Studies, said that according to the Volcanic Eruption Index (VEI), the risk at Marapi Volcano is rated between 4 and 6, which is enough to stop trade in the Strait of Malacca. (The highest level of the index is measured with 8.)
FOOD FACILITIES WILL EXPERIENCE
“Global average temperatures will drop by 1 degree Celsius in up to three years, leading to severe climate anomalies, leading to major global food shortages. Unpredictable rainfall patterns and unusually low summer temperatures have led to major crop shortages worldwide, leading to increased food prices in the summer of the second year and higher food prices,” the researchers wrote. will lead to high global inflation.
“It won’t be until the beginning of the third year after the explosion that technological advances catch up with the crisis and help rebalance global food supply and demand.”
