Hollywood loves Doomsday, film producers have through the years looked at the popularity of this genre as a way to make money. However, there are some truths in these films. In an article from CBSNEWS, scientists concluded there were 9 possible ways that life on Earth could end.

No 1, is climate change. It has always been touted as a way life could end on this planet. Not withstanding the effects on the weather. Changes in climate would effect plant and animal life, leading to possible famine, political instability and other changes we wouldn’t want to deal with.

Movies like Deep Impact, have raised the issue of an Asteroid hitting the Earth which could kill off life on this planet. Scientists and NASA agree.

If that doesn’t scare you, consider that a new type of fungus or airborne pathogen could cause widespread panic and/or loss of life. Recently, we had a coronavirus called MERS that originated in Saudi Arabia and has killed people in that country.

How about an engineered disease coming out of a lab from a hostile country. I mean, did you really think that bird flu was just natural?

Nuclear War is another possibility, You just have to look at the noise coming out of North Korea to know that this is a possibility. With so many countries possessing a nuclear capability, it’s just a matter of time. The Doomsday Clock shows how close humanity is to destruction.

Rounding off the list is overpopulation and a robot uprising. The first may not raise an eyebrow of surprise, however, a robot uprising? The Terminator? Consider this. The UN recently called for a ban on the production of killer robots.

Doomsday Movies are fiction, however, as these scientists have said, there are real possibilities that life on this planet could be changed forever. Hmmm, prepping doesn’t sound so stupid now, does it?
