英会話ブログ その659     Survivalists and Preppers(1)

2015/07/20

An American TV show, "Doomsday Preppers", has recently focused attention on a group of people in the USA that are either crazy or prudent, depending on your point of view.

As many as three million Americans believe that in the near future there will be some kind of society - changing disaster.

This disaster could be natural, like a catastrophic hurricane or earthquake, or it could take other forms such as a nuclear war, economic cllapse or breakdown of society.

Therefore, these people are preparing shelters that can survive war or natural forces.                                         (G.K)
