The EIGHT ways the world could END! How asteroids, super volcanoes, killer robots and even ALIENS could trigger the apocalypse


A science journalist has identified eight ways the world could end, with lethal biotechnology, Terminator-style robots and nuclear war being the biggest threats to life on Earth.

Bryan Walsh, 41, a former foreign correspondent and author from Brooklyn, also addressed climate change, supervolcanoes, asteroids, disease and even aliens in his new book.

End Times: A Brief Guide To The End Of The World came after Mr Walsh spent two years looking into the horrific ways the world could face Armageddon.

He has assessed both the severity of each disaster, as well as the likelihood of it actually happening.

Mr Walsh says: 'I don't want people to feel we're doomed and the world's going to end tomorrow and stuff.

'I want them to see that in each one of these risks, there are things being done, or that we could be doing.

'We need to make sure these catastrophes don't happen because you can't just hide in a hole for years to avoid this.'
