There are several volcanoes that could affect the global climate on a scale of a couple of years and eject large quantities of ash into the air. The fact that one more has been discovered is noteworthy, but not apocalyptic.

From what I can gather is that we are looking at a chance (nothing definite) of an eruption that has catastrophic LOCAL effects (i.e. if you live in a village near the volcano) with the potential for some short-term climate impacts. I see nothing to suggest that it will be anything on a scale we haven't dealt with within fairly recent history. This is definitely not a megavolcano like Yellowstone.

This post is unnecessarily scaremongering.

no it is not scaremongering it is common sense to educate ourselves, are you old enough to remember when the volcanoes erupted in Iceland - did we know about it beforehand or would it have been scaremongering to address the potential of this disaster ? knowledge is our existance

Are you talking about Eyjafjallajökull? I remember that well. I don't remember it being apocalyptic - "the beginning of the end". Yes, it was highly inconvenient, but it was hardly apocalyptic.

My issue wasn't that you were posting about a new scientific discovery. If you had posted a factual article with a representative caption, I would have thought it quite interesting. But "is this the beginning of the end"? No. The article uses the word "Catastrophic," but a little more research makes it clear that "catastrophic" is in reference to local effects (i.e. villages in close proximity).

I should point out that the article you chose, like many clickbait sites, way overstates the risk. Here's a more grounded article: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/dormant-russia-volcano-bolshaya-udina-waking-complicated
