There’s something in the air that feels like the end might be near. People are getting nastier; stress levels are through the roof, and something’s definitely up. Actually, it’s not that much of a mystery – there’s a whole bunch of factors, that if not kept in check, they will be the end of us. Like, Donald Trump for example. Along with these nine other reasons that’ll you want to check out that could mean you life, or death. Keep reading…
Global warming – obviously – is a well-known threat by now. Melting ice caps could end up drowning us all due to rising temperatures, thanks to all the pollution we’ve created. Except that not everyone, including people in power like politicians don’t believe in global warming – which is actually the biggest problem of all.
Explosion Gamma Ray
Know what happens when two stars collide together? Gamma-rays (a burst of energy and light 10 quadrillion times more powerful than the sun) shoot out from the collision. On the off chance that one hits us, it’ll zap our planet destroying everything on it in seconds.
Because of globalization, things spread lightening quick amongst the population. For example: information. Another example: diseases. Should an anti-biotic resistant strain of some virus get loose, which scientists believe is close to happening – just like the plague – it could kill off most of the population.
The movie ‘Terminator’ is not as far-fetched as most would like to think. As technology advances exponentially at its current rate – it’s plausible that the machines we build to serve us could become self-aware, and end up turning on us in an act of service to themselves. Watch out for your toaster is all I’m saying.
The universe is filled with black holes. But recently, scientists found one a billion times the size of our sun not too far from our own galaxy. Should it grow in size and suck us in – it would eject our planet from the solar system to only god knows where.
Now that we’re globalizing, should we go to war, it most likely will be a global one. This means we’ll see one bigger than we could ever imagine. What’s scary is that by looking at all the hate-boiling over on the Internet, it appears it might just be starting.
The earth has a magnetic field that protects it, and us, from cosmic rays and sun storms. But scientists have recently noticed this magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster then once thought, which means that in less than 100 years, its poles could reverse. If this happens then bye-bye protection from the above mentioned, which in case you’re wondering, means instant death.
Asteroids. They keep flying by us, but one day, we’re gonna get smacked by one. And when we do, we’re gonna go the way of the dinosaur.
Not to get too science fictiony on you here, but the odds that we’re alone in the universe is slim to none. And if there is something else out there that needs resources (like water) to survive, if it’s more advanced than us, it’ll take it from us. Life on planet earth isn’t just survival of the fittest – this is a tenant of life everywhere.
What Trump supporters don’t realize is, is that the parallels between him and Hitler are strikingly familiar. Now Hitler brought us to war, but he did so in a time when the world was still a very large place. If Trump starts one … well … we already had the ‘war in a globalized world’ talk.
