All these natural disasters have happened before; solar ejections, huge volcanoe's etc. However, there's a distinct problem. When these things happened before it didn't matter. Now it does matter. Humanity has become so dependant on the technologies it has developed, that when the SHTF big time, we are not going to be able to cope. When the next coronal mass ejection happens on the scale of the 1850's one, say goodbye to your car, phone, electricity, clean water, heating, food, work, money.
When the next mega volcano kicks off, say goodbye to airtravel, and as a cosequence, final economic collapse ( we're practically there anyway).
Oh and say hello to global rioting, looting, death on a huge scale from famine ,disease. Basically, by advancing so far technologically, we have dug our own grave. It's only a matter of time. It's already atarted. the house of cards is falling. Sorry for sounding so pessimistic, but i'm simply stating facts
