Warning — Evacuate Earth The End Of The World — Before it is Destroyed by a Rogue Neutron Star

Evacuate Earth

Evacuate Earth The End Of The World

Evacuate Earth is a National Geographic Channel documentary that portrays the hypothetical scenario of humans evacuating the planet Earth before it is destroyed by a rogue neutron star. The documentary details the technical and social complications of building a generation ship to save humanity and other Earth organisms by relocating to a planet in another solar system.

The documentary proposes a thought experiment in which a neutron star approaches Earth. Constant meteor storms are the first warning sign, and dramatic sequences depict widespread destruction and the deaths of thousands of people. Given seventy-five years to prepare, human society radically shifts toward the evacuation of Earth. The propulsion system for the spacecraft is the first problem to be addressed. In a dramatic sequence, the world’s leading experts debate the benefits and drawbacks of various methods. Conventional rockets are too slow, and antimatter engines are too unstable; they eventually settle on nuclear pulse propulsion, as originally suggested by Project Orion. The world’s engineers, scientists, and manufacturing workers begun work at a new site dubbed Starship City. Interviewed experts propose that fatalism may drive some people to attempt to sabotage production, and, in a dramatic sequence, terrorists strike the city, though they are destroyed by a hidden minefield.

 

Who is to be evacuated is another major issue. Although diversity is respected, any selected individual would have to be genetically hardy and not predisposed toward disease. In dramatic sequences, a second ark ship is announced amid controversy, as it is reserved for the world’s wealthiest and most powerful families. Simulated newscasts announce delays and setbacks as scientists are lured to the private ark ship. As the neutron star enters our solar system, Saturn is destroyed, and the Earth experiences calamitous shifts in its seasons. The private ark ship, equipped with an antimatter engine, explodes when its antimatter containment fails. Families are potentially broken up as they prepare to board the remaining ark ship, and experts discuss the basic necessities for human life: bacteria, air, water, and food. Bacteria are easily stored, and air is synthesized from water. Food, however, remains a difficult problem, and experts propose that colonists will eat insects and algae, which are easily replenished and space efficient.

Once the ark ship launches, the neutron star radiation begins to heat up the core and melt the crust, which causes massive earthquakes and volcanism. Next, the gravity from the neutron star tears away the surface, causing the crust to shatter and the hot interior of earth to spill out into the vacuum of space. Earth is destroyed, but only the colonists can see this happen, as the rest of humanity had already been wiped out. The colonists continue their journey to Barnard’s Star; experts discuss the potential for mutiny and fatalism, ultimately rejecting them as unlikely, as strong family and societal bonds will be emphasized. The journey is estimated to take approximately eighty-eight years, and the youngest of the original crew survive to see the new planet, which potentially harbors other lifeforms. Experts conclude that the scenario, though unlikely, is possible and requires preparation from the world’s governments.

People are born with the innate desire to survive, but sadly, many in our increasingly dependent society look to others for relief and assistance following a disaster. The fact is that help from government, family, or neighbors is often unavailable when needed most, and in the end you may have only yourself to count on. Do you know what to do and how to do it if disaster strikes? 

Evacuate Earth
The end of the world doesn’t have to mean the end of mankind. CGI and interviews with experts explore how we could leave the Earth.

In a doomsday scenario, the race is on to escape annihilation.

If we had 75 years warning, would humankind be capable of evacuating the planet?

This programme examines how you could flee your home habitat: from building a 25km-long spaceship capable of travelling trillions of kilometres to deciding which unlucky souls get left behind.

12 Disasters That Could Bring About The End Of The World As We Know It

Disasters

12 Disasters That Could Bring About The End Of The World

Our way of life is far more vulnerable than most people would ever dare to imagine. A single major catastrophe could fundamentally alter all of our lives at any moment. But since most people have not experienced such a catastrophe during their entire lifetimes, most people just assume that there will never be one. This is called “normalcy bias” and it can lull us into a very false sense of complacency. The other day, Michael Hanlon of the Telegraph wrote an article entitled “How will the world end? From ‘demonic’ AI to nuclear war — seven scenarios that could end human race“. Below, I discuss each of those seven scenarios along with five additional ones that I have added. We live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, and as a society we have become exceedingly dependent on the technology that we have surrounded ourselves with. If something were to happen which would force us to live like our grandparents and great-grandparents did, most of us would be in a tremendous amount of trouble. And as our technology has advanced, so has the potential that this technology will be used for war and destruction. There is great evil in the heart of man, and the potential to hurt others with that evil has never been greater. And of course there are always other “black swan events” to be concerned about as well. The following are 12 disasters that could bring about the end of the world as we know it…

1. ASTEROID STRIKE

A single asteroid could potentially produce an “ELE” – an extinction level event. And scientists are finding more asteroids that are potentially a danger to Earth all the time. For example, just the other day Russian researchers discovered a massive asteroid that will fly close to our planet every three years…

Scientists have calculated that 2014 UR116 asteroid will fly in dangerous proximity to Earth every three years. If it collides with the planet the energy of the explosion could be a thousand times greater than the impact of the Chelyabinsk meteorite.

Vladimir Lipunov, a leading scientist on the team which discovered the asteroid this October, says the scientists now know its orbit and its period which is 3 years, but they cannot say precisely when the asteroid will approach the Earth.

“We should track it constantly. Because if we have a single mistake, there will be a catastrophe. The consequences can be very serious,” he said in the documentary “Asteroids attack” posted on Roscosmos website.

If a very large asteroid does hit us in just the right place, we could be talking about tens of millions of deaths and the collapse of entire nations. The following is an excerpt from one of my previous articles about what could happen if a very large asteroid were to come crashing down just off the east coast of the United States…

According to the University of California at Santa Cruz website, if a massive asteroid were to crash into the Atlantic Ocean it could produce a giant tsunami with a wall of water as high as 400 feet that would slam into the east coast of the United States…

If an asteroid crashes into the Earth, it is likely to splash down somewhere in the oceans that cover 70 percent of the planet’s surface. Huge tsunami waves, spreading out from the impact site like the ripples from a rock tossed into a pond, would inundate heavily populated coastal areas. A computer simulation of an asteroid impact tsunami developed by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, shows waves as high as 400 feet sweeping onto the Atlantic Coast of the United States.

In case you were wondering, yes, that would be absolutely catastrophic.

2. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Could the machines one day rise up and take over?

Personally, I am skeptical, but some of the brightest minds in the world are deeply concerned about this. Just consider the following excerpt from Michael Hanlon’s article in the Telegraph…

Humanity may have already created its own nemesis, Professor Stephen Hawking warned last week. The Cambridge University physicist claimed that new developments in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) mean that within a few decades, computers thousands of times more powerful than in existence today may decide to usurp their creators and effectively end humanity’s 100,000-year dominance of Earth.

This Terminator scenario is taken seriously by many scientists and technologists. Before Prof. Hawking made his remarks, Elon Musk, the genius behind the Tesla electric car and PayPal, had stated that “with artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon,” comparing it unfavourably with nuclear war as the most potent threat to humanity’s existence.

3. A GENETICALLY CREATED PLAGUE

Ebola has kind of fallen out of the news in the United States, but the virus is still spreading like wildfire over in Sierra Leone.

But of potentially even greater concern is what could happen if someone started releasing a weaponized form of Ebola, Smallpox or the Marburg virus in our major cities.

A bioweapon can be a brutally efficient killer. It spreads silently and invisibly, and a full-blown pandemic could ultimately kill hundreds of millions of people.

And every single day, our ability to manipulate these bugs grows. Many believe that it is only a matter of time before these types of weapons are used as instruments of terror.

When that era arrives, all of our lives will change forever.

4. NUCLEAR WAR

This is one that most Americans greatly underestimate.

Even though tensions with Russia are extremely high, most of us just assume that “the Cold War is over” and that a nuclear war is virtually impossible.

Unfortunately, that is not even close to the truth.

The following is an excerpt from my recent article entitled “10 Signs That Russia Is Preparing To Fight (And Win) A Nuclear War With The United States“…

Back in 1967, the U.S. military possessed more than 31,000 strategic nuclear warheads. Now, we only have 1,642 deployed, and that number is scheduled to be further reduced to about 1,500.

Sadly, reducing the size of our nuclear arsenal by close to 95 percent is not enough for anti-nuke crusader Barack Obama. He has spoken of unilaterally reducing the size of our strategic nuclear arsenal down to just 300 warheads.

During this same time period, the Russians have been developing some very impressive stealth delivery systems which have the capability of hitting targets inside the United States within just minutes of an order being issued. This is particularly true of their submarine-launched missiles. The newest Russian subs have the ability to approach our coastlines without us even knowing that they are there. If the Russians came to the conclusion that war with the United States was unavoidable, an overwhelming first strike using submarine-based missiles could potentially take out nearly our entire arsenal before we even knew what hit us. And if the Russians have an anti-ballistic missile system that can intercept the limited number of rockets that we can launch in return, they may be able to escape relatively unscathed.

In order for “mutually assured destruction” to work, we have to see the Russian missiles coming and have enough time to order a launch of our own. Thank to emerging technologies, the balance of power has fundamentally shifted. The old way of thinking simply does not apply anymore and the Russians understand this.

5. PARTICLE ACCELERATOR DISASTER

Michael Hanlon considers this one to have a “very low” probability, and I concur. Although our ability to destroy ourselves is growing by leaps and bounds, I believe that any disaster involving the Large Hadron Collider would be a localized event.

But as we continue to try to “play God” and build machines like this, we potentially open up gateways and expose ourselves to dangers beyond anything that most of us ever imagined.

6. ‘GOD’ REACHES FOR THE OFF-SWITCH

I thought that it was very interesting that Michael Hanlon included this one in his article…

Many scientists have pointed out that there is something fishy about our universe. The physical constants – the numbers governing the fundamental forces and masses of nature – seem fine-tuned to allow life of some form to exist. The great physicist Sir Fred Hoyle once wondered if the universe might be a “put-up job”.

More recently, the Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom has speculated that our universe may be one of countless “simulations” running in some alien computer, much like a computer game. If so, we have to hope that the beings behind our fake universe are benign – and do not reach for the off-button should we start misbehaving.

So could God step in and alter the course of history?

Well, it has certainly happened before, and many are convinced that it will happen again.

Many Christians believe (myself included) that we are moving into the period of time that the Bible refers to as “the last days”. According to the Scriptures, there has never been a time as horrible as the last days will be, and there never will be a time like it afterwards.

Of course the Bible also says that “the last days” will not be the end of the world.

But it will be the end of the world as we know it.

7. CLIMATE CATASTROPHE

There are a lot of people out there that believe that global warming caused by human activity is the greatest threat that humanity is currently facing.

I am not one of those people. The climate has always been changing, and it will always be changing. And the amount of carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gases” produced by human activity is a negligible percentage of the total.

In addition, scientists tell us that there were times in the history of this planet when carbon dioxide levels were far, far greater than they were today. So even if we were to move back in that direction substantially, it would certainly not mean the end of our planet.

However, that doesn’t mean that we are not going to see tremendous changes in our weather in the years ahead. The primary driver of climate change, the sun, is behaving very strangely right now. If it continues to behave erratically, that could cause dramatic climate shifts.

In addition, the increase in seismic activity that we have been witnessing all over the planet could also greatly affect our climate. Volcanic ash can have a tremendous cooling impact on global weather patterns, and volcanoes that erupt on the ocean floor could potentially cause ocean temperatures to rise substantially. Scientists tell us that if ocean temperatures were to rise far enough, we could see billions of fish dying. If such an event were to occur, a global famine would not be too far behind.

8. SUPERBUGS THAT ARE RESISTANT TO ANTIBIOTICS

Medical professionals are becoming increasingly alarmed by the antibiotic-resistant superbugs that are starting to pop up all over the place. So far it is not a catastrophic threat, but experts warn that it could soon become one. The following is an excerpt from one of my previous articles…

The “wonder drugs” that we have been using since the middle of the last century are rapidly losing their effectiveness, and medical authorities are warning that the emergence of very powerful antibiotic-resistant superbugs represents “one of the gravest threats in the history of medicine“. Of course the “wonder drugs” that I am talking about are known today as antibiotics. These drugs attack bacteria, and when they first began to be developed back in the 1950s and 1960s they were hailed as “miracles” that would save countless numbers of lives. Well, it turns out that nature is having the last laugh. All over the planet bacteria are developing resistance to these drugs, and scientists are warning that they can’t really do anything to stop these superbugs. With each passing year these superbugs are gaining ground, and there appears to be not much hope on the horizon of being able to fight them. In fact, no new classes of antibiotics have been invented since 1987, and none are being developed right now. Meanwhile, scientists are telling us that many current antibiotic treatments will be completely obsolete by the year 2030. Are you starting to understand why so many high profile members of the scientific community are using the words “catastrophic threat” to describe this crisis?

9. CYBERWAR

Did you see what just happened to Sony? It is probably the most embarrassing and financially damaging incident in company history. Of course the North Koreans are denying that they were behind the attack, but there is a good chance that they were.

Sadly, this could just be a preview of what is coming.

For example, what would happen if a cyberattack took down all of our major banks? What would we do?

Most people don’t realize this, but our banks are already under assault every minute of every single day…

Wall Street banks are getting hit by cyber attacks every single minute of every single day. It is a massive onslaught that is not highly publicized because the bankers do not want to alarm the public. But as you will see below, one big Wall Street bank is spending 250 million dollars a year just by themselves to combat this growing problem. The truth is that our financial system is not nearly as stable as most Americans think that it is. We have become more dependent on technology than ever before, and that comes with a potentially huge downside.

10. ANOTHER FUKUSHIMA

The Fukushima nuclear disaster showed all of us how a single natural disaster can absolutely cripple a nuclear reactor.

And of course things are still not under control at Fukushima. It is already the greatest nuclear disaster in human history, and it is still releasing even more nuclear material into the environment every single day.

Once this material gets into the food chain, it can silently kill for generations. The following comes from an opinion piece by Helen Caldicott that was published in the Guardian…

Internal radiation, on the other hand, emanates from radioactive elements which enter the body by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Hazardous radionuclides such as iodine-131, caesium 137, and other isotopes currently being released in the sea and air around Fukushima bio-concentrate at each step of various food chains (for example into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). After they enter the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, where they continuously irradiate small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years, can induce uncontrolled cell replication – that is, cancer. Further, many of the nuclides remain radioactive in the environment for generations, and ultimately will cause increased incidences of cancer and genetic diseases over time.

So what happens one day when a catastrophic natural disaster in the United States or elsewhere in the world causes several “Fukushimas” at the same time?

That is something to think about.

11. A MASSIVE ERUPTION AT THE YELLOWSTONE SUPERVOLANO

Around the globe, there are some volcanoes that are so absolutely massive in size that they are referred to as “supervolcanoes”.

One of these supervolcanoes is in the United States. The following facts about the Yellowstone supervolcano come from one of my previous articles…

#1 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could be up to 1,000 times more powerful than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.

#2 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would spew volcanic ash 25 miles up into the air.

#3 The next eruption of Yellowstone seems to be getting closer with each passing year. Since 2004, some areas of Yellowstone National Park have risen by as much as 10 inches.

#4 There are approximately 3,000 earthquakes in the Yellowstone area every single year.

#5 In the event of a full-scale eruption of Yellowstone, virtually the entire northwest United States will be completely destroyed.

#6 A massive eruption of Yellowstone would mean that just about everything within a 100 mile radius of Yellowstone would be immediately killed.

#7 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could also potentially dump a layer of volcanic ash that is at least 10 feet deep up to 1,000 miles away.

#8 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would cover virtually the entire midwest United States with volcanic ash. Food production in America would be almost totally wiped out.

#9 The “volcanic winter” that a massive Yellowstone eruption would cause would radically cool the planet. Some scientists believe that global temperatures would decline by up to 20 degrees.

#10 America would never be the same again after a massive Yellowstone eruption. Some scientists believe that a full eruption by Yellowstone would render two-thirds of the United States completely uninhabitable.

#11 Scientists tell us that it is not a matter of “if” Yellowstone will erupt but rather “when” the next inevitable eruption will take place.

12. A GIANT ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE FROM THE SUN

This last one that I have added to the list is one of the least understood.

A giant electromagnetic pulse from the sun has the potential to fry much of the technology that we have become so dependent upon.

How would you survive in a world where nobody has electricity, the Internet has been fried, the financial system is offline indefinitely, nobody can make any phone calls and virtually all commerce across the entire country has been brought to a complete standstill?

A massive EMP blast has the potential to send all of us back to the 18th century in a single instant. And just two years ago there was a “near miss” that almost got us.

So don’t think that it can’t happen. In fact, experts tell us that it is only a matter of time before it does.

And when it does happen, it could turn our society totally upside down…

According to Peter Vincent Pry, who advises Congress on homeland security issues, a large enough geomagnetic solar storm could produce effects similar to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear weapon that “could collapse power grids everywhere on the planet and destroy EHV (extra high voltage) transformers and other electronic systems that would require years to repair or replace.” While the danger posed by a G5 solar storm gets mentioned occasionally at Congressional hearings, there really hasn’t been any major action.

Earlier this year, a Homeland Security adviser said America is not ready for an EMP attack, never mind a G5 solar storm, and it’s claimed that the U.S. power grid fails more often than any other in the world. If a large enough solar storm does impact the United States, the damaged electronic systems can cause a cascade of failures throughout the broader infrastructure, including banking systems, energy systems, transportation systems, food production and delivery systems, water systems, emergency services, and even the internet, so people may not even realize at first what has happened. Effectively, the U.S. would be thrown back to the pre-industrial age following a solar superstorm, and yet we are not prepared for the worst.

So what do you think about all of this?

Are there any additional potential disasters that you would add to this list?

Apocalyptic TV: Art Imitating Life or Predictive Programming?

apocalypse-9-500x362-300x217by Nicholas West

It is always a good idea to prepare for reasonably common events such as natural disasters, large climate events like drought, and generally to be as self-sufficient as possible. The natural world, coupled with the insanity of global banksters, should get us all prepping in a hurry.

Doomsday is another matter entirely. As 2015 approaches, we have doomsday coming in every stripe: World War III, religious rapture, Mayan prophecies, Nibiru, alien intervention, and even a zombie apocalypse: you name it. People are prepping like never before and even building their doomsday bunkers to ride it out. And all the while Hollywood is right there either to be a reflection of our concerns that can be capitalized upon, or to give a lending hand to global management who would like us to behave a certain way when the inevitable doomsday does arrive — it’s a technique known as predictive programming.

bulletproof

No matter your view, the flurry of apocalyptic television programming and major motion pictures should get our attention, as we are being shown how “entertaining” the end of the world can be.

It is apparent from the trailer that the power grid has failed (and is perhaps an inside job) and that the real power is what survivors are struggling for. Revolution takes place 15 years after the apocalyptic event and we are shown a bleak landscape which appears to be like Road Warriormeets the Hunger Games.

Interesting to note that local groups are called “militias” and are headed by warlords. The word militia has, of course, become the catch-phrase used in the MIAC document of 2009 to include such villains as Ron Paul supporters, constitutionalists and returning veterans. But here is the official summary from NBC Publicity:

Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.

Holly Deyo, author of Dare to Prepare! has issued a scathing critique of this popular programming, and how it distorts what might otherwise be a worthwhile attempt to bring prepping to the mainstream. Instead…

It was a near-given that this program would paint preppers as wackadoodles and in this regard, it doesn’t disappoint. To be fair, some creative and unique ideas are demonstrated, but then they gum up the works with the ridiculous…

Most astonishing in one episode the analysts negate the chances of an EMP-induced power grid failure, when NOAA, a notoriously conservative venue, says this is a near certainty. Mainstream has reported on this potentially catastrophic problem for the past 2 or 3 years. Writers of Doomsday Preppers should have done their homework to avoid looking so ignorant.

A lot of people think of ‘preppers’ and they think of the TV show Doomsday Preppersand other media reports which portray extreme examples . . .We wanted to make it clear that prepping is not an extremist or anti-establishment decision. Most of it is just good common sense.

EMP11

According to the trailer, Take Shelter is the winner of two awards at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, and an official selection at The Sundance Film Festival. This normally means that there is at least something deeper to say beyond the normal mainstream, big budget film.

One interesting element that is introduced is the focus on a central character who has a premonition of a catastrophic event. He takes action and begins to make preparations for the event in the face of intense criticism from friends and family who think he might be losing his mind and wasting money building a storm shelter lined with storable goods. As his preparations intensify, it is clear that one is left to wonder if this is prophecy, schizophrenia, or something else.

Take Shelter could be a critique of how the general public views anyone with “End Times” beliefs or the desire to prepare for any type of cataclysm or societal collapse. Or, it could be a cautionary tale to that very same ignorance-is-bliss public to listen a little better to those who are taking steps to protect them from the fallout.

The End of The World is a horror comedy in development with Seth Rogen and Sony Pictures based on his short film Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse. The film is also inspired by an eerie conversation Rogen had with Hollywood insiders George Lucas and Steven Spielberg who revealed to Rogen that they were personally preparing for a doomsday event in 2012. Is this movie a bit of necessary comic relief, or does it serve to acclimatize us that the end of the world could be cool, fun … and even funny?

These new programs follow in the footsteps of other series such as The Colony, and movies likeContagion. For an interesting database of apocalyptic films, visit ApocalypticMovies.com to trace them from the 1950s on — have they helped prepare (program) us for what we have already seen come to pass? How have they changed over the decades?

The U.S. government certainly seems to be gearing up for something big with its massive purchase of ammunition – perhaps civil unrest from a collapsing economy? Despite preparations made by governments and elites, there has been a move to paint preppers as crazy and even threatening.

U.S. officials themselves have prepared for the very same cataclysmic scenarios through their Continuity of Government agenda and they hold the ultimate bunker in Cheyenne Mountain.

However, the public is increasing its preparedness as well, since the alarm bells are sounding louder than ever before. Survival purchases are skyrocketing, and guns are being bought in record numbers.

One doomsday bunker company, Hardened Structures cites the following client demographics:

30% believe in  end-of-the world scenarios
50-55% are concerned about economic collapse and political unrest
20% wish to protect against military, data storage and EMP threats
Perhaps Apocalyptic TV has always been with us in one way or another and has remained popular, because most people believe that the end of the world is always looming just over the horizon.

Since this month is National Preparedness Month – if we continue to be so intrigued by the myriad cinematic ways our society can meet its untimely end, we might as well prepare for the reality just in case one of these scenarios jumps off the screen.
