"When it hits the fan…I mean REALLY hits the fan in a permanent kind of way, the most likely outcome is death.

That’s not pretty, and I’m well aware of it. I always try to be positive and optimistic, because for me, preparedness is the ultimate act of optimism, but sometimes we have to look at the numbers and face some things that are pretty terrifying. The first reality check is that some research says that only 3 million Americans are preppers. That means that 315 million Americans are notpreppers. Some experts predict that within 30 days of the power going out, 50% of Americans will be dead. Within a year, an astounding 90% of the population will be dead."

How I'll die when TSHTF? 

Hopefully, with a gun in each hand.

that reminds me of this story

I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding on U.S. 166 Eastbound at Mile Marker 73 just East of Sedan, KS. I asked for her driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance.

The lady took out the required information and handed it to me. In with the cards I was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a conceal carry permit. I looked at her and ask if she had a weapon in her possession at this time.

She responded that she indeed had a .45 [semi-] automatic in her glove box.

Something — body language, or the way she said it — made me want to ask if she had any other firearms. She did admit to also having a 9mm Glock in her center console.

Now I had to ask one more time if that was all. She responded once again that she did have
just one more, a .38-special in her purse.

I then asked her what was she so afraid of.

She looked me right in the eye and said, “Not a f….ing thing!”

Three "tshtf"scenario's:

3. (Limited) nuclear war. Now that North Korea and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) also have nuclear weapons, KSA may have used a small nuclear weapon in Yemen, it could be that in 2003 the US used a Neutron-bomb to take over Bagdad-airport, the chances for a nuclear war are increasing. Depleted uranium is used in US-shells, used in former Yugoslavia, Iraq. In Afghanistan (Bora-bora) the US may also have used nuclear-small-scale-weapons. This fact alone will cause an increase in cancercases. A large-scale nuclear war will mean that most people will die in the first few minutes of such a conflict. 

2. Fukushima was not an incident. According to their own statistics Fukushima, Tjernobyl, Harrisburg etc. would not have happened. But the nuclear industry is only interested in money. Another large scale nuclear disaster will be here within 5 years. Nuclear plants are getting older, more expensive to run. Climate change, earthquakes etc, increase the risks. Nuclear polution is already a large problem. The "natural background radiation" is six times the level of the pre-nuclear age. With an older getting population-and the use of nuclear weapons-this also will cause a sharp rise in cancercases. 

1. Climate change, global warming, is causing melt of ice and permafrost in polar regions. This means that methane-release is rising sharply. The "hockystick-model" may be to optimistic. Looking at earlier episodes in earths-history can be misleading. Since CO2, methane, temperature is rising in an unprecidented rate, further methane, temperature, sealevel etc. rise will also go much faster. Not in a diagonal-hockystick-way but in a vertical way. 

Already in East Siberia methane-rates seem to be exploding. This will further escalate. In a "fire-triangle" you need fuel, oxygen and temperature to start a fire. Rapid temperature rise, more than enough fuel (methane) and the presence of oxygen may lead to large wildfires, possibly further escalation into massive methane explosions. Also the large scale release of methane in "burps" can cause earthquakes. In the worst-case scenario the Earth itself could explode. 

At present the temperature rise is already giving problems in drinkingwater supply, food production, heat exhaustion. In the short term extreme weather will mean increasedchance for nuclear disaster and war. In the nearby future, proberbly before 2030, life on earth can become impossible for humans. The heating-up proces will than still further escalate-proberbly not to Venus-like circumstances-but to the earth becoming fuel for a "big-bang-explosive ending". 

I hope these ideas all prove to be totally incorrect.
