If by "rock bottom" you mean "a thousand years of darkness", then yes.


I don't know if it would take us a thousand. We'd have the rest of the world to keep technological knowledge, etc., alive.

Oh, everyone else would face economic disaster as well. Simply not likely civilization-ending as what would be occurring here.

Best case scenario.


Depends. We grow lots of food in this country, and many people would likely be able to flee to neighboring nations.
