← One in seven thinks end of world is coming

Depends on how you define "end of the world". This planet will outlive me. The human race will outlive me. Our current civilisation - for want of a better word - may not. I wouldn't say it's likely but there's a reasonable chance of a natural or man-made disaster (disease, super-volcano, asteroid strike, nuclear war) wiping out a significant percentage of humanity and knocking us back a few centuries.
