A Guide to the Apocalypse.jpg

In 2018, scientists set the "Doomsday Clock" to two minutes to midnight. This symbolic clock represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe for humanity. Parameters such as nuclear armament, environmental factors and political uncertainty are taken into account. "A Guide to the Apocalypse" takes on five possible world-ending scenarios and tongue-in-cheek survival strategies.
