Prepper for Climate Change

by craigburma | created - 15 Oct 2012 | updated - 3 months ago | Public

I believe there are a few basic reasons why I am a prepper. One of those is Climate Change. I believe it is happening, it is primarily man made and that no government(s) will take meaningful steps to make meaningful changes that will slow down the inevitable effects from it. I also include in this list some titles about nuclear attacks /accidents, EMP attack or comets hitting our planet. all relatively low probability events relative to certainty of climate change.
