The End of the World Started in Dublin

The end of the world is coming in 10 years time and it appears to have started in Dublin. That is according to the new movie The Road starring Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen. The movie is described as "A post-apocalyptic tale of a man and his son trying to survive by any means possible".

In typical disaster movie style the trailer starts with news footage of the start apocalypse. In prominent position is footage from the 2006 Dublin riots. That means we have 7 years until most of us are dead and the survivors are pursued by gangs of lawless killers. So really if things keep going the way they have over the last year 7 years might be an optimistic estimate.
