Sense of Helplessness Permeates Society in the Face of Current Natural Global Catastrophes

Disaster management news source, Terra Daily, lists scores of catastrophic global events on their online website, prompting a spokesperson from First Aid Global to proclaim, “All that an individual can do, really, is prepare and go on living.”

Hurricanes, fires, floods and earthquakes.

Television shows like ‘Doomsday Preppers’ seem to ride the line between fear and preparation - we get calls from both sides.

Conspiracies and coming apocalypse are being touted by doomsayers, but internet preachers aren’t the only sources of bad news for what is shaping up to be another year of growing catastrophes. Pick up a newspaper or visit an online news source and the list of natural and man-made catastrophes seem to erupt from their pages.

Recent stories posted by Terra Daily, an online news source of disaster management include 'Nicaragua eruption forces 3,000 to evacuate'; 'Two tornadoes hit New York City'; 'China quakes kill at least 80'; 'Vietnam hit by new 'highly-toxic' bird flu'; 'Indonesian lives risked on 'world's most polluted' river'; 'Vietnam warns of water conflicts'; 'Third person dies from Yosemite park virus'; 'Singapore chokes on smoke from Indonesia'; 'Glacial thinning has sharply accelerated at major South American icefields'; 'France says it will close oldest nuclear plant by 2017'; 'Weekly Japan anti-nuclear rally going strong'; 'Large 2012 earthquake triggered temblors worldwide for nearly a week'.

And while out-of-control fires and simmering drought cover most states in America, antibiotics, antimicrobials and antifungals flourish in our waterways while the threat of a national financial meltdown adds to the everyday fear. The list goes on and on.

“Some people choose to ignore the news, while others take it too seriously and live in a world of fear,” says a spokesman from First Aid Global, an emergency preparedness company in Los Angeles. “Television shows like ‘Doomsday Preppers’ seem to ride the line between fear and preparation - we get calls from both sides. For those persons who’ve already begun to stockpile goods, they’re a few steps ahead. All that an individual can do is prepare and go on living.”
