Doomsday Scenarios that are Already Happening
The only certainty one can rely on in this world is uncertainty. And with the rate at which technology is progressing, we must be prepared for the worst. There are as many as twenty-one (21) doomsday scenarios already happening, and they’re only going to worsen if we don’t take any prevention measures. These doomsday scenarios may not lead to an end of the world as we know it, but they will drastically affect our lives.
This article talks about some of these doomsday scenarios and how they might affect us or what we can do to prevent them from happening.
1. Climate Change is Impacting the Earth in Dramatic Ways
We are living in a world where the climate is rapidly changing. One of the significant changes it has brought about is rising sea levels, leading to many low-lying areas being submerged. This section will look into the effects of climate change and how it is impacting our Earth in dramatic ways.
The rapid rate at which we are driving up global temperatures and melting glaciers and ice sheets means rising sea levels faster than ever before. As a result, many low-lying areas such as islands and coastal communities worldwide are either submerged or at risk of being submerged. This rise in sea levels is affecting not only humans but also animal habitats and marine life, which could lead to rapid extinction rates for some species such as polar bears and giant pandas.
Agitate: Every year, the earth’s temperature rises, and natural disasters increase in frequency and intensity. But we can fight back and help protect our planet from climate change by making smarter choices, like recycling and reducing our carbon footprint.
Solve: Climate Change impacts the earth in dramatic ways, but we can work together to put a stop to climate change by helping conserve resources like water and electricity.
2. There is an Overpopulation Problem With Species Extinction Putting Communities at Risk
Humans are currently the most populous species on Earth. However, there is an overpopulation problem with the extinction of other species that put communities at risk.
The human population is quickly increasing, and communities are faced with problems like poverty, water-scarce, food shortage (which leads to hunger), and more. These problems cause many people to be displaced or immigrate to other countries. Communities are also faced with climate change, global warming, and natural disasters, which put them at risk of being displaced or not producing food.
Agitate: The world’s wildlife has shrunk to 46% since 1970, including species found in forests, oceans, and rivers.
Solve: To protect these communities and species from extinction, our planet needs to handle population increase by implementing alternative solutions and organization that promotes sustainable choices that ensure that future generations will not face this same problem.
3. There are Dangers Associated With Artificial Intelligence & Robots Taking Jobs From The Workforce
AI algorithms are getting smarter every day. They are also taking over jobs from the workforce. In Japan, the skilled job market is shrinking, and in China, wages increase because of robots. China plans to replace human workers with AI and robots by 2030. It will be interesting to see how this plays out for the global economy and workforce in the coming years.
Many people are concerned about the future of humans in the workplace. The worry is that automation will take over human labor, resulting in unemployment and poverty. So, this article is an argument against these fears.
It argues that for every job taken by a robot, something new will be created to take its place. And it also shows how recent studies show that robots increase employment rates in specific fields.
Agitate: It’s essential to examine these issues in greater detail. There are countless articles on this, focusing on the rise of AI, the limitations of artificial intelligence, and how they will affect our society.
Solve: The ramifications of these developments are immense. Everyone needs to be aware of what’s happening to avoid it or adjust by being highly skilled in other fields that will not be replaced by artificial intelligence or robots shortly.
4. The U.S. Is Destroying the Environment with Trump’s Proposals to Reduce Environmental Regulations
With Trump’s proposals to reduce environmental regulations and roll back climate change progress, the U.S. is destroying the environment.
President Trump and his administration want to make America great again. And to do so, they believe that we need to follow the same path as the other nations by reducing environmental regulations and pulling out of global climate change accords.
Despite these policies, which are irresponsible and dangerous, Americans are fighting back against such drastic changes- not just in large cities but also in rural communities that these harmful actions will hardest hit.
Agitate: We need to act fast to ensure the world doesn’t end up like the apocalyptic wasteland of “Mad Max.” Donald Trump has proposed cutting back on environmental protections.
Solve: This is not the time to be complacent. The fate of our world rests in our hands with the decision of our present President Joe Biden and his colleagues.
5. The effects of climate change are now being felt globally.
We live in a time where climate change is not just an issue for the future, and climate change is happening now.
The effects of climate change are so severe that people have begun to move to higher elevations, which will become uninhabitable, as the local ecosystem will not support them because of extreme temperatures.
Climate change affects our planet’s biodiversity too. The destruction of habitats and ecosystems has led to the extinction of many species, and it’s only going to get worse as time goes on.
Many places around the world are more vulnerable than others to the effect of climate change. These weak areas include Canada, Alaska, Russia, Sweden, North America’s boreal forest and Europe’s Alpine regions, and the Tibetan Himalayas. These areas could experience significant changes in their ecosystems due to climate change.
Agitate: Debating whether or not the Earth’s climate is changing seems fruitless at this point. Everyone worldwide is feeling the effects, and we have to unite to combat the problem before it’s too late.
Solve: We can stop climate change today by reducing the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. We have to get serious about reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
With advancements in technology, we are moving towards a future that will be more beneficial for humankind. There are, however, several drawbacks to technology that have been observed in recent studies. These doom and gloom scenarios can lead to worldwide destruction and act as the first step to humankind’s extinction. Now is the perfect time to work against the severe drawbacks that could endanger all life on Earth, and what better way to do this than by saving all living organisms.
