Just looking for a straight vote, reasons why would be cool. I will pre-emptively make fun of myself by admitting I’m a lifelong conspiracy theorist.*
I’ll go first: Maybe? Polar ice caps melting, blistering temperatures and a drought (out here at least), plenty of war to go around and world leaders who act like idiots. Seems kinda frightening. But then I think of the historical perspective and realize that 1918, killer bird flu decimating the world, World War I taking out scads of young men, economies going to hell etc. must have seemed quite apocalyptic to the people of the time. It makes me skeptical.
