Apocalypse Not: Here's Why You Shouldn't Worry About End Times | Wired Science | Wired.com:
'via Blog this'
A good Wired magazine article that chronicles past predictions of economic and ecological collapses, mass famines, and resource depletions that never happened. At the same time I think the article would have been better mentioning some major collapses that have happened in the past. A little balance to help us hone in on which scenarios are likely to be actual threats and which are flights of paranoid fancy.
