Serious SHTF question.

What would be the most realistic cause of an apocalypse? I don't mean societal collapse like the Roman Empire or collapses where new nations take their place. I mean an actual,unequivocal apocalypse. A total end of human civilization and complete cessation of progress that would take thousands of years to recover from.
What event would be the catalyst for this scenario?

    It's extremely unlikely for humans to actually be the cause of the apocolypse. Even with nukes, it would still require a significant volume of them to cause irreversible damage to every enviornment on Earth. Japan recovered fairly quickly from their atomic bombings for example. And human driven climate change wont be the end of the world by any means, it'll just make the world a slightly worse place to live, especially for third worlders in less robust enviornments.
    A more likely scenario is the world will end far more slowly and with more natural, enviornmental means. Increased solar activity shifting Earth away from the habitability zone, slow loss of Earths megnetic field.etc

      Non-issue. Birth rates, even in nature, tend to fall as an enviornment reaches its carrying capacity
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrying_capacity
      The reason European countries have reached their biological carrying capacity first before Asian countries is simply because Europeans use more resources per capita, as Europeans nations in general are more welathy. Fertility rates are simply stabalizing.

        The asteroid impact didn't actually kill all the dinosours. Crocodilian and Avian Dinos survived, and are in fact still very much with us today. For some reason we just don't consider them dinosours because mainstream media convinced us that all dinos were massive Kaiju

          Crocodilians are not related to dinosaurs. Avians are though so thats true, but they were never classified as dinosaurs despite descending from them, they were avians and had already diverged, and over time really lost any resemblance to dinosaurs. Though Im sure the surviving members of the clad right after the strike would be pretty "dinosaur-y" to us.

        it would be probably... frickin... 2 weeks and the whole government would be in their bunkers waiting to come out in 50 years like the Enclave from Fallout.
        90% of everyone would die IN THE FIRST YEAR of grid down.

    I think The Road which is OP pic insinuates in the novel that the apocalypse was caused by a meteor strike, so the world entered a nuclear winter.

    My bet would be that one of the super-volcanoes erupt one day which will have a similar effect to a meteor/nuclear war, at least from a global perspective. We can absolutely prevent a nuclear holocaust and we can in theory prevent a meteor strike, but we cant do anything about the super-volcanoes.
    In that event, crop and livestock will die from the dramatic atmosphere change which will last for an estimated 100 years. Billions will starve while the remaining either haul up in organized governmental communities with synthetic farming, while the rest becomes pillagers and scavangers. Humanity wouldnt die off but the culling would be biblical. In fact humanity did experience the eruption of a super-volcano once and they estimate that less than 1000 humans on the entire planet survived, and that we are all descendants of those lucky 1000.

        You can actually go much lower and still maintain genetic viability as a species, even if it makes it increasingly harder the lower you go. Humans are actually notoriously inbred because of this. We have some of the lowest genetic diversity of any mammal. Even other species of apes with their small and isolated population will have more genetic diversity than us.

Volcanic winter like 536, an actual pandemic like the Mongols basically causing the black death, the last glacial maximum, all of these things or horrible and most people living in such times will die.

    Imo the Road more depicts something like the Permian Age extinction, in which case life itself may well be over. And imagine having to live with bunker schizos and their nerd progeny. It's over bros.

        You're probably right, but the anon is right as well.
        Women would most likely unconditionally revert back to the traditional gender roles. Women are survivors too but in a different spectrum. Those women who wouldnt accept the new life would qucikly be rooted out by the situation. The highest mortality rate would still be on men since men are more prone to destroy other men rather than women. There would probably be even more men unable to adapt to the new situation than there would be women, and even more men than women who is ending up in the crossfire of the new situation.

    Climate Change is the number 1 threat according to the Pentagon's Minerva reports and some OECD studies, Pentagon modelling predicts mass social society breakdown around 2070 at current trends.
    Something people have largely ignored about Climate Change, is the fact that the current global food market is extremely fragile. All it takes is two of the food bowls to fail, say Ukraine and Australia, and you would have shop shelves largely empty within a week globally. This is because food isn't stored, it's traded on functionally something equivalent of a stock market. Nestle needs 1000 tonnes of cocoa bean, then 1000 tonnes of cocoa bean are grown, excess dumped, and then shipped to Nestle, who make it into food and then sell it, no modern farm aims for increased production, they only go for exactly what is ordered, hence if only 2 food bowls fail, then it's game over, there is noone else who can pick up the slack, and there zero stored food to make up the difference.

      true, it would frick things up if they just suddenly dried up tomorrow, but not only is there a shitload more (the most accessible of which being in the Russian far east, and then Antarctica), we already have alternative and efficient sources of energy which can be invested into gradually, if it was actually necessary (it's not).
      what the real problem is is the interconnectedness of the electric grid; the lack of local energy generation meaning if there was a frickup tomorrow everyone's fricked, and the source* of that energy is irrelevant

          Nuclear is never going to happen, it takes insane amounts of investment and research, the backlog queue for reactors already stretches to 2050 since there is only 2 companies on earth that provide the components. On top of this most countries don't have the expertise.
          Yes shutting down current nuclear plants is moronic, see Germany, but nuclear as the future is a meme. The world only has about 15 years of useable uranium if nuclear became the main source of energy.
          Massive advances in geothermal will probably be the future of energy. It's just an absolute b***h to build and currently, the process, has an extremely high rate of failure during the drilling phase.

            That backlog and dearth of companies is explicitly because those in power want prevent nuclear and continue using fossil fuels. It's not a natural bottleneck. Literally all you'd need is a government not owned by fossil fuel interests to go all in, which becomes increasingly likely as fossil fuels become uneconomical.
