Post apocalyptic disaster preparedness list

Andy
The list author says: "Apocalyptic events happen, period. If a catastrophic disaster strikes while you are still on this Earth, be prepared, or suffer the consequences.

Every previous empire in history has collapsed. Is the USA different? All others thought they were too smart or too powerful to collapse. Look around you and you will see the signs that overpopulation on the Earth is unsustainable. Our dependency on fossil fuels is unsustainable. Our current financial system is unsustainable.

There are 8000 active nuclear warheads and 22,000 total nuclear warheads in the World. Nuclear weapons will become easier to produce as the technology permeates. All you will need to kill millions is a cause and currency.

We are running out of oil which powers our entire way of life. It will be very painful when the oil supply cannot keep up with our immense appetite. We are running out of water faster than oil, and unlike oil, there are no replacements for water. Our infrastructure is failing and there isn't enough funding to maintain it. Advances in technological innovations, robotics, nanotechnology and genetic engineering will create scary things. What will happen when these things are turned against us?

Global warming, pandemics, chemical and biological attacks...

You have an idea what is coming. Live in cognitive dissonance or prepare yourself now!

This list is not an endorsement of any product, or an attempt to scare you. Every item on this list can be substituted, in many cases with cheaper alternatives, but buy quality gear. My goal is to provide you with an idea of some of the things that you will need to prepare you and your family in the event all Hell breaks loose. The probability of that happening is higher that we like to believe."
