ApocalypseReview.com is the fulcrum of an ecosystem of parody sites targeted at niche markets, related to foreign affairs, economics, culture, politics etc.
- SurrealClear Politics.com
- The Shill
The idea is to create a parody of echo-chamber politics. A story on ApocalypseReview (AR) may reference a story on a SurrealClearPolitics.com (a parody of RealClearPolitics.com) which cites AmericansForPlutocracy.org (a parody of the think-tank Americans for Prosperity) which references a comment on BrainFart.us (Breitbart), which refers back to the original story at AR.
One fun aspect of this approach is that you may have to go to multiple sites to fully experience a joke.
Please note, these jokes cost money so if you like them support our sponsors (not all of the “ads” are fake).

The Apocalypse Review was first conceived of in 1990, which at that time was the hottest year of the Anthropocene. The original idea was to create an Utne Reader style compendium of research, anecdotes and art-work related to humans’ annihilation of our planet. This spirit of nihilism has certainly been justified: in the 29 years since the first discussions about this project, 23 years have have exceeded 1990’s heat record, the majority of the Earth’s wildlife has been killed because of habitat destruction, our oceans are loosing oxygen at a catastrophic rate and entire food chains have become contaminated with plastic. Worse, the will to act in the United States has actually declined because of pernicious misinformation campaigns, and the resistance of fossil-fuel industry shills like Senators Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Jim Inhofe to constructive change.
