Storyline

A special expanded edition of 20/20 that chronicles 7 of the deadliest threats to humanity. It starts at number 7 (least likely), the death of stars, including the risk of gamma ray bursts and black holes. Intelligent machines and the threat of our own technology turning against us lands at number 6. Five is the inevitability of a super-volcano eruption, specifically talking about Yellowstone park. Moving on the documentary interviews scientists about the plausibility of an asteroid hit, nuclear war, plague pandemic, and ends with our foremost hazard, a process that is already taking place; climate change.

Very entertaining and enlightening
21 March 2007 | by iggimarcoSee all my reviews

This doc is by far more revealing and enlightening than END DAY. Although it may start as outrageous, little by little the tension starts to built up and draws you in so raw and so real it's just daunting. The fact that we can avoid the number one in that list and we are doing almost nothing about its just scaring the hell out of me.

Quote: "I think the greatest tragedy in the universe would be to realize that we have enough intellect and enough technology to save ourselves from a killer asteroid but not enough intellect to save us from ourselves"

Go on, watch it, be entertained.
