It gets worse but we have no other choice. After grey sky comes blue. If you look back you will see how hard it was - even for our grandparents, they worked twice, if not thrice, as we did. There were stupid diseases and not so good medicine. The Earth's population has been growing the past decade so this is a clear sign the worse is left behind, and we as people, always asume that "the worse is up ahead", because this is our nature.
