Since the millennium bug scare (which is by far the most realistic a probable world ending catastrophe we've had) and the internet its not a good year if we don't have the world ending at least 3 times.
People are not (mostly) intellectually equipped to deal with such broad news.
It's like way back when the print was invented and u suddenly had the beginnings of mass media; everyone thought crime etc was worse simply because they heard more about it.
Same applies today with the internet, now with global news bombarding us from every angle its so easy for people to go omg earthquakes or tornados or volcanoes are getting more common. This is totally false though, the change is we hear more about it due to better mass media and doomsday types hyping every incident into a bigger deal.
