National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers

I like to watch National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers, though, I sometimes I laugh as some of the things I see. I’ll say to myself, “What an idiot. That couldn’t happen.” Strangely enough, if I were to ever meet that person, I’d probably never voice my opinion to him, but, rather, I’d tell him he doing a good thing.

Why the dichotomy?

Consider in season one, the man in New York City who was preparing for a Yellowstone volcanic caldera—a cluster of volcanoes inside the park. It is theoretically possible but is so improbable, that it strains the imagination, and if it did happen, what real impact would it have on New York City?

Now move the clock ahead about one year to Superstorm Sandy that smashed the east coast and New York City. In my mind, I can imagine him standing in front of his closet full of MREs and I can imagine that despite the devastation, he must might have laughed.
