Natural catastrophes

Asteroids, pandemics and supervulcanos

A natural catastrophes that has become increasingly relevant is the threat of pandemic. These outbreaks can quickly spread around the world, causing widespread illness, death, and social and economic disruption.

Another example of a natural catastrophe is the threat of asteroids. If a large asteroid were to collide with Earth, the consequences have already proven to be catastrophic. The impact would release a tremendous amount of energy, causing widespread destruction and potentially triggering a global extinction event.

The threat of supervolcanic eruptions is another example of a natural catastrophe that has the potential to cause widespread devastation. These eruptions release vast amounts of ash and volcanic gases into the atmosphere, leading to crop failure, famine, and other impacts on global climate and ecosystems.
