As you enjoy watching your favorite zombie shows, you pretty much know there’s nothing to fear from hordes of walking dead. However, you should definitely sit up and take notice of some terrifying real life threats that may lead to a huge apocalyptic event, destroying life as you know it.
Ominous threats like the one in slide #2, may not seem like that big of a deal, but when combined with the threat we face in slide #5, things aren’t looking too rosy. If that doesn’t alarm you, threats #8 and #10 can easily wipe out humanity in record time.
10. Animal Habitat Loss
Human population growth and the expansion of large cities is encroaching on natural animal habitats. Increasingly, some animals are seeking shelter near homes, and that can be a problem for humans and animals.
While animals struggle to survive, increasing numbers of people are suffering from terrible viral diseases after coming into contact with infected animals.
9. Disappearance Of Bees
If you routinely go to the supermarket to buy food, you should be worried about the drastic drop in the bee population. Bees aren’t just buzzing about, we rely on them to pollinate food crops, which sustain human life.
If bees go extinct, many crops will wither and die out, and humans won’t be far behind.
8. Solar Storms
Imagine every city in an entire country going completely dark for months. Flares from a massive solar storm have hit the earth before, knocking out electrical grids for miles around.
Destructive solar storms wreaked havoc in 1859 and 1989, causing millions to go without power. There’s no telling how large the next one will be.
7. Climate Change
Something really bad is happening to our planet. Glaciers that used to be reliably frozen solid are melting away. Cold is being replaced by balmy weather during a typical winter season. Eventually, climate change is going to cause severe weather events like we’ve never seen before. Unfortunately, we’re not ready for it.
6. Mega-City Chaos
Increasingly, people are moving away from the countryside into large urban areas. This urbanization has led to the creation and growth of mega-cities, which are home to 10 million or more city dwellers.
People crammed into close living spaces are faced with the rapid spread of disease, and many may experience food, water, and housing shortages.
