about

On Thousand Year Waves the world is falling to pieces. But not with a crash. The world is decaying in waves. Be it climate change, a global pandemic or financial turmoil - they all come in waves.

You watch the ocean from the beach. After a while you start thinking you understand the pattern of the waves and that you can tell which one is bigger than the other. Until a huge wave comes along and you don’t understand anything at all.

On the morning of New Years' Eve 1995 an oil rig outside Norway detected and measured the first rogue wave ever. The platform was built to withstand a wave height of 20 meters - something that was calculated to happen statistically 1 time in 10,000 years. The monster wave that covered the platform that morning was 25.6 meters high. The waves just before and after were around 12 meters high. But one wave was higher than what was statistically possible.

This is how the world will end.
