Tension, fear, and unrest have been burgeoning across the world. Prepper meetup events have seen an attendance spike in the past few years, and the survivalist movement has been gaining traction. There is a developing zeitgeist of fear of a world-altering event. While many fears are unsubstantiated, other threats are potentially brewing that are backed by science.

The World Economic Forum ranks weapons of mass destruction as the top risk that will have the biggest impact in the next 10 years.

With world leaders claiming that they have a “nuclear button” they could press at any moment, it is no wonder that fears of a nuclear apocalypse gnaw at people’s minds around the world. Eight countries have declared possession of nuclear weapons, but only five are part of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Ninety percent of nuclear warheads belong to the U.S. (6,550) and Russia (6,850). If nuclear weapons were to be unleashed, the death toll and devastation would be colossal. However, not all threats are so obvious and catastrophic. Some could result in a slow but steady death of the planet.

The loss of biodiversity threatens the future of food and fresh water.

Naturally, extinction should occur at a rate of about one to five species per year. In reality, dozens of species go extinct every day. This causes irreparable damage to the biodiversity of the planet, which leaves food supplies and fresh water vulnerable to pests and disease.

This infographic explores 15 ticking time bombs that could impact the future of humanity, the health of the planet, and the fabric of society in various ways. While not all are guaranteed to occur, it is important to be mindful of the threats so preventative and protective actions can be taken.
