Will the end of the world arrive with the next economic collapse, nuclear war, or presidential inauguration? Thinking it best to be prepared, Vivos has taken readiness to new extremes with their 575-bunker Vivos xPoint community in South Dakota . It will cost preppers $25,000 to lease an off-grid bunker in a high-security area, combined with a $1,000 per year ground lease for 99 years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn0229zWnos Vivos converted an old army munitions depot, where the Army stored ammunition and bombs from 1942 to 1967, into a refuge where around 5,000 people can survive in case of a devastating catastrophe or zombie apocalypse. The hardened concrete bunkers are located south of Edgemont in South Dakota, and Vivos boasts the community is around 100 miles from “the nearest known military nuclear targets.” Just to be safe, each bunker can reportedly endure a 500,000-pound internal blast.

Outfitting the bunker is up to the lessee; they can hire contractors or purchase a turnkey shelter from Vivos. The company says residents can choose geothermal heating, solar or wind to provide backup power for a generator, or even a nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) air filtration system. Vivos hopes to add a general store, shooting range, hydroponic gardens, medical clinic, horse stables, classroom, and members-only restaurant, among other planned amenities. Why stop at just one bunker? The company suggests preppers could even secure more shelters to store their art or wine collection, car, or horses. With 1,800 to 2,400 square feet of interior floor space, the bunkers can accommodate 10 to 20 people for a whole year. No one lives in Vivos xPoint just yet, according to Business Insider , but the group is taking reservations. For $5,000 and a background check, people can apply to live in what Vivos describes as “the place you will want to be when the SHTF!” And if South Dakota isn’t your kind of place, Vivos offers communities in Indiana or Europe as well. + Vivos Images via Vivos

Comments Off on “Unchecked climate change” causes atomic scientists to push Doomsday Clock closer to midnight

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists just issued their first update to the symbolic Doomsday Clock since 2012, announcing that we have advanced by two minutes and are now at “three minutes to midnight”—with midnight referring to the end of the planet. The reason for this alarming stance? “Unchecked climate change, global nuclear weapons modernizations, and outsized nuclear weapons arsenals pose extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity,” explains the Bulletin .

Comments Off on Earth Can Only Sustain Life for Another 1.75 Billion Years

Until now, a string of apocalyptic disaster movies like 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow seemed pretty silly and implausible. As it turns out, Hollywood directors might be onto something. According to scientists around the world, Earth will only be able to sustain life for another 1.75 to 3.25 billion years before the planet is expected to stray too close to the sun and burn up into nothing but hot rock.

Comments Off on 7 Eco-Shelters for Surviving the 12-21-12 Apocalypse

Survival Condo: Bunker-Apartment in the US If you were looking for a totally indestructible shelter for surviving the approaching 2012-doomsday scenario, a converted nuclear ballistic missile silo could have been a good option, but sadly this particular model is completely SOLD OUT. Retailing for just $2 million per apartment, the  Survival Condo  in Kansas, is a 14-story shelter with enough  food  to feed 70 people indefinitely. It also comes with a fitness center, a bar, a pool and a movie theatre showing videos of how the Earth looked before it all went down in flames. Vivos: A Luxury Bunker-House In the US If you cannot bear spending the apocalypse without a big flatscreen TV, a washing machine ,and a well-equipped kitchen, Vivos might be your best bet. Located beneath the Mojave Desert , these stylish interconnected underground bunkers promise to keep you, your family and animal-friends (these go for free!) safe and comfy for a long-term stay. Angebauter Tarnrucksack: Bunker-Cultural Center in Switzerland If  don’t want to spend your last days without any art and culture, then this green-roofed Cold War-era  bunker  turned cultural center might be the most clever way to spend the world’s end. Located within the Swiss Alps, Angebauter Tarnrucksack by  Atelier-f  is a solid construction, boasts a green roof and beautiful views of the mountains (we’re not sure how well these will hold post-Apocalypse), and is a true doomsday escape for the most discerning artist.

Comments Off on 60% of Americans Live Where Pollution "Reaches Dangerous Levels"

The effective manner in which the US has dealt with air pollution in cities since the passage of the Clean Air Act is a point of pride for environmentalists as well as legislators. But that’s not to say that pollution doesn’t persist in many parts of the nation — far from it. One recent report found that a staggering 175 million Americans — 6 out of 10 people — live in areas where particulate pollution reaches dangerous levels
