I’m not talking about the end of human life, but the end of human civilization or society as we know it.
I can think of two single events that could do this, one would be a comet strike, and the other would be a Yellowstone eruption.
A comet strike that would be the equivalent of a super volcano [caldera] eruption could lead to a end of civilization as we know it. It depends on
where it hits. If it strikes Earth in the Atlantic Ocean so many coastal cities would be destroyed that I think the world would not be able to cope
with its effects.
A Yellowstone Eruption I believe would result in worldwide food shortages because of the effects on the American Midwest bread basket, and other
longer term effects from global weather patterns as a direct result of such an eruption, would cause society to collapse within six months to a year
from such an event.
Do you think we will see something like this happen?
Sorry mods I meant to post in skunk works
