Survival of the Richest - An updated infographic look at super-rich survivalist strategies

June 26th, 2019, 4:39 pm

In 2017, The New Yorker published an extremely popular piece on this topic. Since then, extremely rich survivalists have devised new strategies to avert a so-called armageddon. They range from the amusing to the confounding to the grandiose. I thought it would be interesting to represent them in an infographic.

Thoughts are most welcome:

I have a horrible feeling some of these people are getting off on their personal Dr Strangelove fantasies.
Was that ten females to each male you said? To repopulate the Earth?

If the current growth rate of levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere persist (and they will thanks to melting ice and lighter air pressure on the seas and land that trap methane), only anaerobic bacteria will be able to procreate. The super-leeches can only assume that they will die first.
