Vast quantities of Antarctic ice are collapsing into the sea, something that scientists are fearful is signalling the early stages of unstoppable disintegration.
With the Arctic permafrost melting, the crypt known as the Doomsday Vault, built to preserve humanity’s food sources after/during an apocalyptic/disaster situation, has flooded.
Doomsday is every day to those 200 species that go extinct daily, thanks to this culture.

Tree eaters include the Biojack 300E, the Posse ScorpionKing, the CBI ChipMax 484 Portable, the Naarva S23 Stroke Harveste, the John Deere H414, the SP 451 LF and the Waratah HTH624C. The damage they inflict, as you can see, is horrific.

Nesbit draws from the fears of individuals such as Bill Gates, Stephen Hawkins and Elon Musk in his article on the subject – full text here.
