You severely underestimate how fast things can change.

aside from something like Yellowstone blowing up i don't know know what could do it though

it would be suicidal and largely unproductive (due to defenses) to nuke the united states via missiles, the only other major destructive force that could cause calamity. while both this and yellowstone would be localized to north america more so than say, a meteor or a sun flare, the impacts would still lower everybody else's standing. so what would be so powerful as to lay low the united states quickly, yet leave others unscathed? i can think of nothing. a slower fall is something that is going to happen at some point in the future
