Welcome back to our "Dark Futures" series, which examines some of the worst-case scenarios that could befall humanity. Previously, we looked at how the threat of a totalitarian future (as envisioned by countless dystopian writers) could still happen. Today, we take a look at the "nuclear holocaust" scenario - aka. World War III. A reminder that these are "potential scenarios," not something that is certain or inevitable in any way. So try not to let them get you down!
