Billionaires gear up for Armageddon

Washington: Billionaires are buying up “indestructible” alien boltholes to seek sanctuary in during alien Armageddon or more-likely nuclear war and disaster.

The US company creating the $1.5million “Earthship” eco-structures says humans “must evolve” and insists they “will soon be a necessity” for our species “to survive on this planet.” The bizarre U-shaped hideaways, which can reportedly survive in any climate, can be deployed to any part of the world and are self-sufficient enough to survive in isolation – during a killer virus outbreak or a radiation catastrophe.

 

“We have had people ask us to build them Earthship communities with underground chambers from weapons and ammunition,” explained architect Michael Reynolds.

The top-of-the-range Phoenix Earthship has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and can be decked out in decor of your choice. If you’re on a tighter budget, some cost as little as $1,00,000 – but you will have to pay expenses to fly the construction team to the UK.

The 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan – the worst since Chernobyl – proves their necessity, Mr Reynolds says, with humans rightly “worried about the deadly future that lies before all people”.

Three nuclear meltdown explosions caused by a tsunami after an earthquake led to the release of radioactive material — the effects of which are being felt to this day.

The Earthships’ thick walls are built from car tyres packed full of mud. “The resulting bearing walls it forms is virtually indestructible,” he explained. They are made almost entirely from recycled materials including glass and wood and are “off-grid” — power comes from solar panels and wind turbines nearby.
