But there aren't any pictures. Where's the porn?

Every day I sneak into my boss's office and post a new picture of an environmental disaster on his desktop. This week was debris flows. I think next week will be sediment plumes.

And yes, that magma pool is indeed not too much smaller than Wyoming.

Pretty funny (with a nervous laugh) chapter on that in Bill Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything"

If you want real disaster porn you have to wait until later this year, when the book "Global Catastrophic Risks" is published. Asteroids, volcanoes, nuclear exchanges, stable worldwide totalitarian government... it's got 'em all.

If you like disaster porn, Exit Mundi (http://www.exitmundi.nl/), is always a nice place to kill some time.
