Nuclear disaster inevitable

Postby oldtrucker » Dec 9th, 2017, 1:29 pm

In regards to the article in Castanet" Nuclear disaster inevitable"....
I would guess that less than 5 percent of our population would put disaster planning for a nuclear conflict ahead of "who won last nights hockey game" for importance. It's absolute denial to be strait up about it. The thing that is ironic is that people will get up at 6 am ,go to work every day -for their entire lives...To do what? To make enough money to survive.
Key word -survive.Very few are able to emotionally process planning for what most consider 'the unthinkable'. All of my life I have assumed that one day our luck will run out.(Nuclear war has not happened yet... because of good luck, not good management).So, out of the few of you that are able to accept the reality that our lives are absolutely dominated by a doomsday clock that's presently sitting very close to midnight; how many of you have survival plans in the event of war?

We, like other sentient life forms, are here because it's the only way the universe can perceive itself.

Found four fallout shelter companies, so at least some are taking it seriously.
