Heather Pentler - The 4 Modern Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Heather Pentler - The 4 Modern Horsemen of the Apocalypse: can you be a rational prepper? The world is a scary and chaotic place at the moment. This talk is your chance to take a rational look at the current threats to human civilisation. How much will global warming change our lives? Is it worth surviving a nuclear war? How are Authoritarian leaders changing our civilisation and democracy? Is it possible to be a prepper without being a conspiracy theorist? Heather has been an active skeptic member for the last 7 years involved in projects with Merseyside Skeptics and has previously spoken about investigations into alternative medicine and autism myths. Heather is a committee member of Edinburgh Skeptics.
