Don't go giving doomsday away to the zombies just yet though. Climate change is still racing forward and probably leading the apocalypse wars. Fires are raging throughout the west and have so far burned more than 17,000 acres in Colorado and 167,000 acres in Utah. Fires have broken out in Idaho and Arizona as well, fiercer, earlier and more damaging than normal. Add in heat waves and storms plaguing the Midwest and East Coast, and we have to admit Climate Change is ahead of the Zombie Apocalypse in the race to end the world.
Zombies and the climate don't have a complete monopoly on the Apocalypse though. Other popular end of the world theories include alien invasion, sunbursts, super volcano eruptions, cosmic catastrophe and the Christian Rapture. Right now, we'll have to wait and see (some predict doomsday before end of the year), but Climate Change seems like it's certainly leading the Apocalypse parade.
According to experts there might still be hope to reverse the effects of climate change before it's too late. On an individual basis, we can: plant trees, walk instead of driving, use less electricity, eat less meat, purchase products locally, use public transportation, use wind or solar energy and urge our political leaders to adopt more environmental policies. A number of agencies are actively seeking volunteers to help with environmental projects as well. There might still be time to act... then we can gun down zombies!
