Default Planetary Disasters

We talked about this a couple of times a while back. What happens if there is a planetary disaster? Who would show up to help? How long would it take to notify anyone that could help? And so on...

Well, here's a couple of list of the current risks to planet Earth that you could throw into your Traveller game. Be aware that some of these scenarios might make you run and hide under your stairs after reading them.

The second page gives an expectation of recovery for each scenario.
