There’s no better way to start a conversation with a friend than to bring up potential doomsday scenarios. Luckily with this infographic guide, you will be readily equipped.
Keep in mind this is the real deal, and not any of this wimpy economic collapse stuff. We’re talking planets and stars exploding, near-extinction, and Bruce Willis coming to the rescue type of stuff.
One event that we have talked about before is human overpopulation, and the concerns that it brings to natural resources and the environment. As the global population moves towards 10 billion and with fertility rates dropping as countries get more advanced, we don’t see this as being an apocalyptic scenario. However, we do see it as causing scarcity and creating opportunity for resource investors and the creation of new technologies.
One common theme in this tongue-in-cheek graphic is that all of these scenarios involve our planet. That is why expanding beyond into space is important, and people like Elon Musk have a good point. The sooner we colonize a planet like Mars, the sooner we find a way to avoid the full extinction possibility of some of these potential events.
