Description


For many centuries, people around the world have been predicting the world coming to an end. Often, these prophesies are said to have roots in science; others are based on religious or mythic beliefs. This book will take a broad look at theories of catastrophism, investigating historic theories of the end of the world, fake science related thereto, and the real science of catastrophic changes in Earths environment and in the universe.
