^Just to play devil's advocate on that last part, how do you prevent the Yellowstone supervolcano from erupting?
Assuming that theory has any validity, the simplest solution is to move the fuck out of yellowstone.
You do realize that if it blows you'd have to move out to the fucking moon to avoid the catastrophe it would cause. It's an ELE.
Which the Earth has experienced MANY times before, and yet is somehow still habitable. I'm not saying it wouldn't thoroughly suck. I'm saying it would not cause the extinction of the human race (just a massive and traumatic thinning of our numbers).

OTOH, relocating to the moon doesn't sound like such a bad idea, all things considered. By 2100, I'd be surprised if it wasn't a serious alternative.
