Zombie apocalypse comes to mind.

NOAA isn't printing charts anymore, because they aren't selling as many and they see the trend ahead. I get that, not surprised.

You'll still be able to get them(from others),but if demand keeps dropping I suspect price will go up, print quality will go down(following a general trend in print media?)
