When a giant comet is hurtling towards Earth… When US president Orlean is more concerned about her approval ratings than preventing the extermination of all life… When the policy advice of America’s greatest scientific minds is falling on deaf ears… When there is panic on the streets and the world’s best response is capitalist greed… Who you gonna call? The world may be 99.7% doomed, but at least we have Chloe Hill on the line to point out what went wrong and how the science advisors could have made a difference.
