Here is an excerpt from the article Associated Press (our translation):
Jerry Yang made a list and checked it twice. In his list, he said 142 possible variants of the Day of Judgment.
The global economic crisis, nuclear war with Iran, a terrorist attack or pandemic. Or an earthquake, hurricane, tsunami or a super volcano.
In any case, Young prepared. And he is not alone.
Reno, Nevada, resident «Prepper"A group of people in the United States and parts of Canada and Australia, who are preparing for the end of the world — or TEOTWAWKI (end of the world — we know what to do with it.)
Fashion for Preppers goes in waves with the announcement of the Cold War and the construction of shelters around the world are able to make a nuclear attack, said Mike Porenta, general manager americanpreppersnetwork, one of the largest online forum and online resource for preppers.
The biggest wave of registrations were in 2000, is still remembered about the error 2000 in windows, and in 2008, during the economic crisis in the U.S. coincided with the flow of the recent natural disasters — from Haiti to Japan.
Today, it is almost impossible to count the number of Preppers because of the explosion of popularity of this ideology on the Internet in recent years.
Hugh Vail, president of American network Preppers, said that the sale of goods for survival and long-storage products grew more than 1,000 percent since 2008, with a jump, after major disasters such as the earthquake in Japan.
And the movement continues to grow — especially in the suburbs.
'Community Preppers increased mainly due to the grand naplva conservative Christians, "says James Wesley Raulz who wrote the so-called Bible prepper, how to survive the end of the world, and runs a blog on survival. 'People just are prepared to survive in rational self-interest, "he says.
Basically Preppers hoard canned and freeze-dried food and water. Some hoarding weapons and ammunition, and take lessons of survival. The remaining building bunkers with enough food and water for the whole family for several years.
While some of the blog readers believe in the prophecy of the Mayan calendar, preparing for apocalyptic change in December 2012, says Raulz for most ordinary people: farmers, clerks, housewives, lawyers, right-wing libertarians to hippies.
In the end, the term Prepper, it was coined in order to break the stereotype of survival: a homemade gun armed bearded man hiding in the forest bunker.
Readers of his blog mostly Canadians, he said. Western Canada, in particular, the model area Preppers.
More and more people are turning to the Internet shop serving Canadian Preppers, Brenik says Anita, who lives in a village near Oshawa.
Brenik says she sells medical supplies for emergencies, not the apocalypse. But while the motivation of different customers, the answers are the same: you need shelter, food and heating homes, she says.
Sarah Luker, middle-class housewife, fully shares the philosophy Anita Brenik. Luker save on food, canning everything they can for the future. To join the community Preppers it after Hurricane Ike forced the run of the house all her family.
At that time, the economic crisis has hit the business and all businesses near Houston began to close. Thousands of people have been laid off. That is when the handy canned Luker. Like many others, she posted her story on a set of Web sites, podcasts, and online stores catering to prepper.
'I'm not too surprised that more people are preparing for the end of the world, "said Michael Lindell, editor of the international journal devoted to the emergency and the director of risk reduction and rehabilitation center in Texas.
Jerry Yang said that preparations for the end of the world allows him to sleep at night.
'I'm preparing for the worst, so many things that happen to us now, for me, only a small inconvenience, "says the author of apocalyptic fiction and prepper blogger.
Jerry Yang has collected a supply of food, a radio, first aid kit and a tent with a sleeping bag. All of which he keeps in his living room in the basket for evacuation.
He says that he is motivated not by fear or paranoia, and he admits that many of them recorded doomsday scenarios are unlikely to be fulfilled. He just wants to be prepared.
