Sooner or later, what is will be rebuilt.

Who knows, we might even be able to do it better and more efficient when forced to do so by circumstances we cannot control.

And if you don't think that "The End Of The World As We Know It" hasn't already happened multiple times throughout history, you've been ignoring history.
What will happen is, NOTHING. Most of the world population will be wiped out. The Spanish flu outbreak will be considered a mild case of the sniffles in terms of shear numbers that are dead outright.

People like to assume that everything will instantly revert to an episode of the old Daniel Boone tv series starring Fess Parker. When if we were lucky, it would be more like Waterworld.

Look at the last big winter system that hit new England, things got shut down for days. Now imagine if they had lost electricity and gas for heating for say 3 weeks straight. Doubt more then 10% of the population would have had a chance at surviving. Now imagine if NOTHING came back on.

Total starvation, the only survivors would have been the ones out of town for vacation
