  • It happens quite a bit. We are hearing it more because everything is readily available. No need to stress or worry over it.

  • No need to be afraid, there is no use worrying about something you have no control over.

  • No.

    I have few delusions about the safety of the planet --or the expectations to get off it alive. A mere 10% in volcanic activity and virtually all life on the planet will be exterminated. There is no force people have ever found that can stop (or start) a tsunami. Or a close-enough supernova that could wipe the atmosphere off the planet, or trigger a supernova of our own sun.

    While 'rain of frogs' tends to make people think more of miracles or urban legends, sudden massive die-off happens to lots of species and the fact that we don't understand why doesn't point to anything any more miraculous than 'people don't know everything.'

  • I'd be more worried about something like mad cow disease than the end of the world.

  • Why does it look like summer in the photo with the dead cows?
    Also, herds die often and it's more of a loss to the farmer then a sign of the end of the world. Cows dies from viruses, poison from their environment, starvation and so on.
    There is nothing to be worried about, animals die off in huge numbers often it's just something the news has taken and run off with,
