Apocalypse How

Image 1 / 4


There are many ways the Apocalypse might emerge – from the bowels of the Earth or the skies above - from the depths of space or the lungs of that guy coughing in the cubicle next to you.  Could a super volcano erupt somewhere around the world?  Could a rogue asteroid wipe out the human race?  Could gamma rays from nearby stars destroy the ozone layer?  If you’re watching this after 2012, you’ve survived all the hype surrounding the end of the last cycle of the Mayan calendar, which was due to expire on December 21st of that year. New Age conspiracy theorists have confidently asserted that date would mark the end of life as we know it, and predicted a host of potential doomsday travesties – hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and nuclear winter.  But no matter what year it is, the threat distinctly exists. The question isn’t only when is the Apocalypse coming...but how??
