Mass extinction event.
If the country’s elite new that the world was going to explode in a few years theyd just massively enrich all of themselves and their mates living a life of debauched luxury
whilst letting living standards and social amenities deteriorate for the rest of us………..
If we knew it too, we probably wouldn’t let them…Posted 4 years agorichmtbSubscriber
The Earth does definitely have a finite lifespan.
Its a safe bet that none of us will live to see the end of it though.
Apparently most apocalyptic fears are as a result of our inability to cope with our own mortality. The idea the world will continue to function after we are dead seems unfair that’s why apocalyptic fantasies are so popular and enduring. It makes our place in the universe seem more important if the world ends when we do.Posted 4 years agohuckleberryfattSubscriber

In terms of nearly every other large animal species, we humans have been perpetrating a mass extinction event for the last 10,000 years. In evolutionary terms this timescale is practically as sudden as the K2 event event that accounted for the dinosaurs.
Our turn will come.I don’t want to be gloomy, but Yellowstone could blow, an asteroid could hit. Or as something more mundane like the AIDS virus managing to mutate so it could be transmitted like malaria. Of course, the likelihood of these things happening in the next couple of hundred years is not enough to make any rational person start stockpiling bully beef and rice, but it does put life’s petty irritations into perspective!Posted 4 years ago
