In his celebrated previous guide, Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation Into Civilization’s Stop, Lawrence E. Joseph appraised the likelihood of world-extensive disaster in 2012 by presenting convincing scientific evidence of looming chaos and even mass extinction. Now, in AFTERMATH: A Guide to Planning For And Surviving Apocalypse 2012 he answers the most pressing problem to come up from the investigation: What can we do to mitigate the coming cataclysm?
Here Joseph presents the most up-to-date findings about the threats to our existence on earth – which includes an all-out collapse of electrical power grids and satellite methods ensuing from solar flares expected to climax with unprecedented ferocity in 2012. Incipient plagues, famines, droughts and runaway global warming are also assessed for their catastrophic prospective. When it comes to formulating a response to an impending apocalypse, the discipline of choices is slender, but Joseph argues that there is lots of constructive motion that can be taken at the individual, neighborhood, countrywide, and global level, individually and collectively, to put together for, endure and emerge from disaster. And Joseph requires readers beyond the conclude-of-the-world mania of the “Apoca-freaks,” by providing visions of the submit-apocalyptic foreseeable future, ranging from the Enlightened Age the Maya foresaw to a re-drawn geopolitical map that could consequence from global upheaval.
Authoritative and written with Joseph’s trademark lighthearted skepticism and wit, AFTERMATH brings jointly investigative reportage from sources ranging from NASA and Countrywide Academy of Sciences to a shaman conclave in Siberia, to the Cave of the Apocalypse in Patmos, Greece, in which the guide of Revelation was written, as well as historical research and situation planning to offer pragmatic suggestions about how to control the harm really should the world as we know it conclude in 2012.
