    Depending on jet streams, the ash cloud could cover the entire world in as little as a month. It'd cause massive global cooling, possibly even an ice age, leading to widespread famine, disease and war over limited resources.

    Basically, normal society would be screwed for 50-60 years after a super volcano blows its lid.

    It would kill plants by blocking out sunlight. That would lead to herbivores dying which would lead to carnivores dying. All of which leads to us dying.

    I feel bad for being excited by these horrible, horrible hazards and their impacts should they occur.

    OH WELL. I am just going to sit here and dork out some more.

    You're missing a bigger factor. Ash is essentially tiny pieces of glass. The reason volcanic ash kills animals is because tiny glass shards slice up respiratory systems. They also can compromise bone marrow and circulatory systems, so a global cover of ash would be catastrophic.
