Threat of a nuclear war outbreak, wiping out all of humanity that could happen at any moment:
Global warming and pollution destroying the planet:
*slightly fast heartbeat*
The fact that the sun will engulf the planet 5 billion years from now, a time when my and all of my decendents will have been dead for a very long time
*super fast heartbeat*
@K1l, I think the inverse ratio of concern over these is because of the apparent preventability of these catastrophes?
We’ve lived under the threat of nuclear annihilation for longer than most of us have been alive for, so that has become normalcy. If there’s a gun pointing at you, you get nervous. Once the gun has been pointed at you for days without ever firing, you get much less nervous. It’s why people are able to live around volcanoes comfortably.
With climate change, I think it’s that if we’re beyond the point of no return, there’s not much point in worrying about it, and if we’re not, we can fix it.
Not a damn thing anyone can do to stop Sol from ever going red giant.
@I Are Lebo, haha oh please, the solutions to all of these are so obvious it's almost laughable.
1. Nobody will be blown up if we all get together and enjoy the crisp, refreshing taste of a Pepsi.
2. Just change the climate back to the good one. I'm sure theres a switch somewhere (oh and btw, there is no "hole" in the ozone layer because the ozone layer is flat. Look it up ;D )
3. Take a cooler full of ice (and maybe some Pepsi) and drop it off at the sun. This will cool it down over time, and give our hardworking astronauts something to drink when they pick the cooler back up

Also, ‘fun’ fact: if our scientists’ estimates on the age of Sol were off, and the star entered the red dwarf stage earlier than expected, it would take years for the process to occur, so we would have a good while to see our extinction coming. Not long enough to be able to flee the planet, either.
Good news everyone! At the rate the Andromeda Galaxy is heading for the Milky Way our galaxy should be annihilated in about 3 billion years! Take that you stupid sun!
*explodes in anger*
