It's the end of the world

These days it's impossible to avoid talk of the apocalypse. YouTube offers hundreds of thousands of clips that warn viewers about their fate and advise them how to survive. And Hollywood has been cashing in with blockbuster apocalyptic films that explore everything from plagues and nuclear warfare to aliens and zombies.
