There are countless predictions about the end of the world – some obviously failed to fulfill itself while the rest remains to be seen. I personally believe that nobody can predict the end of the world. I’m sure there are people out there who share my own stand, but to those who do believe that the end of the world is coming at a pre-determined time, the National Geographic Channel has something for you – Doomsday Preppers. Premiering on Monday, September 17 at 9pm, the show looks into the lives of people who are convinced that the end of the world is at hand, and that they can survive it. The end of the world is the day of doom with all catastrophic events about to happen – earthquakes, massive solar flares, tsunami, etc. These events will definitely lead to shake ups due to economic issues, nuclear concerns, panic, just to name a few. I had the chance to watch the exclusive premiere of Doomsday Preppers and learned a thing or two about how to survive the end of the world.
I was able to watch some of the episodes which showed the lifestyles of these individuals who firmly believe that the end of the world is coming. As early as now, they already have systems in place to protect them from all the disasters that’s about to come – loss of food, drinkable water, robbers and a whole lot more. These are men and women, young and old, preparing for the coming of that dreadful day, training themselves, their family and communities on surviving skills.
National Geographic Channel will show 12 episodes of Doomsday Preppers. The survival plans of these individuals are reviewed in each episode, where logistic and contingency plans are assessed and rated on overall preparedness. A group of expert analyzes the chances of survival of these preppers based on the plans they have in place. These experts, called Practical Preppers, are actually long-time apocalypse planners who share their knowledge by teaching, training and consulting.
As I watch during the exclusive premiere event, I can only say that the preppers have gone through a lot of effort already in preparing the end of the world. Their commitment to what they stand for is quite admirable. Although I’m still not believing that the end of the world can be predicted, I recommend everyone to watch Doomsday Preppers. The end of the world may not happen just as predicted, but acquiring survival skills to tide any catastrophe is important. Visit National Geographic’s website for more details.
