The MSM [mainstream media] is giving excellent coverage of the May 21 2011 apocalypse as predicted by whatshisname the religious dude in the USA.
What we are facing, in the real world, is not something that happens suddenly. Nature takes it's time, for the most part, and the current man-made apocalypse will take 100 years - more or less - to unfold fully. It won't happen in a weekend.
Here is a quote from CBC about events this spring that gives a more accurate view of how things will really unfold:
Images of devastation have dominated media coverage this spring, from tornadoes and massive flooding in the American south to deluges on the Canadian Prairies and Quebec to harrowing forest fires in Slave Lake, Alta.
These disasters have taken a visible toll on communities - damaging properties, ruining homes and endangering if not destroying people's livelihoods.
And thats the way we shall perish. Slowly, getting cold and hungry, the lamb lies down on Broadway.
Our homes will be washed away, or burned - those happen suddenly but we probably won't die at that point - but then we are faced with "what to do now?" as we wander around looking for food and shelter.
That is the kind of warning we need to hear, not this silly "all at once" farce.
