It's expensive to run this operation, government funding has been sketchy lately for research and public outreach, and we'd rather not crowd out content out with a bunch of ads.  Join the Rabble of Victims and support our public outreach work like the blog and social media (Facebook, Twitter) feeds, and we'll add you to our basic push list.

Help Spread the Doom! Support operations as well as application development and expanding our work.  We'll add you to our push list and if you give us a location you will get live hazard reports in plain English ("Expect power outages and big tree limbs down"), and as we expand other targeted, science based, easily understood, actionable information to help you navigate a dangerous world.

This level adds access to our experimental projects, and will give us a major boost towards wider public outreach and customized applications.  If a hurricane heads your way (anywhere in the world!), and as we expand automated outputs to other hazards, our computers will provide live email/text reports on the expected conditions at up to three specific locations.  Like Cassandra, you too can warn people who won't listen about a future they could prepare for  (but won't)!

About

The news is full of doom.  Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) are powerful motivators and widely exploited by the media and politicians.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, pandemics, environmental disasters, climate change, wars and social unrest. Flip on your TV, or pull up a news site or social media page and you'll see doom aplenty.  FUD sells.   But how bad is it, really?  How can you figure out what you, your family, your business should do (if anything!)?  In short, with SCIENCE!  That's what we do: use science to understand and, hopefully, not be so afraid of all the scary stuff out there. Here's your chance to help us do that ... and get more direct information and other cool stuff.
Goals
$1,232.56 of $5,000 per month
At $5000/month, we can put our live status page online.  This will let web users browse for doom, clicking on a hazard like a hurricane or earthquake and get an interactive map of the impacts of the disaster, anywhere in the world.  It will ensure we can continue the blog, Facebook, and twitter posts as long as we have sponsorship for the computer operations, and free up time to work on advanced applications.
