“Doomsday Preppers” seeks to capitalize on emergency preparedness movement
It’s no surprise major media organizations are finally warming up to the idea of emergency preparedness. After all, if there’s a buck to be made, you can bet Hollywood and the gang will be quick to find it.
Such is the case with National Geographic Channel’s “Doomsday Preppers” series, which recently began running on cable television. NatGeo explains the program like this:
Doomsday Preppers explores the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Unique in their beliefs, motivations, and strategies, preppers will go to whatever lengths they can to make sure they are prepared for any of life’s uncertainties. And with our expert’s assessment, they will find out their chances of survival if their worst fears become a reality.
On the website you can find great articles about Mayan prophecies, peak oil, nuclear ambitions, and the aftermath of a zero population scenario. And on the lighter side, there is a great column about doomsday prophecies that have failed.
We here at the foodstoragereviewer.com don’t advocate the use of fear as motivation to get yourself prepared. But, if it gets you moving, then maybe it’s a good thing. We recommend taking a big, deep breath, and then selecting one of the products in our food storage profiles section.
