7 stunning end of the world predictions
According to scientists, the world could endon March 16, 2880. Asteroid 1950 DA has a 0.3% chance of hittingEarth in 867 years. At 1 km in diameter, rotates once every twohours and six minutes and would cause untold damage were it to hit the earth.The Shrinking Mt Everest, 2015 There was something else going on with thelandscape of Nepal, which nobody would have even thought of us.As the earthquake subsided, what came as a real shocker was that the earth's highestmountain range, Mt. Everest stood 2.8 cm smaller, according to satellite data.Earth's magnetic field flips!
The biggest reason which led the Mayan apocalypsebelievers to predict the end of the world in 2012 was based on the changing patternsof Earth's magnetic fields. However, Earth's magnetic field is stillweakening 10 times faster than normal, at present and can further weaken.Earth's magnetic field flips!

by 2021.A series of apocalyptic events, including floods and earthquakes will spell the endof the world before 2021, according to a doomsday prophecy.NEW UNKNOWN WEAPON In this scenario a new type of weapon is created.It might be a Fusion Bomb capable of turning the world into a shortterm star, it mightbe a new form of radiation or it might even be a gravitational weapon that stops the worldspinning. TOTAL NUCLEAR WARThe devastation from thermonuclear blasts would be bad enough and would send what wasleft of mankind back to the Stone Age.
The radiation would engulf the planet on ascale that can't be imagined. Within 6 months anyone who was not â€œblown upâ€� would bevery sick. Within 24 months just about everyone is dead.
What Would Happen If Global Warming Sped Up
Hey guys Julia here for DNews Coming up in December of 2015, the UN willhost the 21st Conference of Parties in Paris. The focus of this year's COP21 will be climatechange. Most of the leading nations in the world have been asked to pledge to keep therise in global temperature under 2 degrees celsius. It's clear that a sharp curb inco2 and greenhouse gas emissions is needed. Unfortunately, not all countries agree onhow best to go about that. There's two main plans: one says everyonegets a per capita cut. Everyone, all nations, have an equal responsibility to curb emissions.The other says that countries who polluted
more in the past have more responsibilityto curb their emissions, so that those that polluted less can have some wiggle room tostill grow. But one study from the Center for InternationalClimate and Environmental Research â€“ Oslo (CICERO) found that the US, EU, and Chineseemission pledges leave very little room for other countries to emit in a 2Â°C world. Thosecountries say their pledges are â€œfair and ambitiousâ€� but might not be enough to keepthings cool enough. The 2 degrees target was decided back in 2009at another UN conference in Copenhagen, where in the Copenhagen Accord countries recognizedâ€œthe scientific view that the increase in
global temperature should be below 2 degreesCelsiusquot;. But why did they choose that numberé Well that number can be traced back to twopapers published in the mid70s by Professor of Economics William Nordhaus at Yale University.In these papers he said that â€œIf there were global temperatures more than 2 or 3Â° abovethe current average temperature, this would take the climate outside of the range of observationswhich have been made over the last several hundred thousand yearsâ€�. Ice core sampling in the mid 80s confirmedthat two degrees above preindustrial levels hadn't been seen on the planet in at leastthe last 100,000 years. Another report in
the early 90s reconfirmed that the consensusthat two degrees is â€œan upper limit beyond which the risks of grave damage to ecosystems.are expected to increase rapidlyâ€�. Since then, that number has had huge visibilityas a â€œspeed limitâ€� of sorts. As we might pass that number, the worse effects on theclimate and the faster those effects will happen. Effects like global sea level rise. A studypublished in the journal Nature Climate Change found that levels could rise 1.5 and 4 metersby the year 2300 if the Earth warms at least 2 degrees. The effects of which we've talkedabout in previous episodes. Links for those
down below. Not only could oceans rise, but rivers couldrun dry, according to a study published in the journal Philosophical Transactions ofthe Royal Society A. In analyzing water scarcity, researchers found that water supplies woulddwindle thanks to more pressure from a growing population. If the temperatures climb evenhigher, to four degrees, some river beds will be drier but some might be wetter, which couldput more pressure on stressed out governments. As the temperatures get worse, the effectswill be more extreme. In another study also published in the samejournal, researchers found other effects include
no sea ice in the arctic in the summer, coralreef die outs, melting of permafrost which will release more greenhouse gases into theatmosphere, and â€œdieback of the Amazon forestâ€�. The study also predicts that semiaridand arid places, like subSaharan Africa will be even drier, they predict the collapse ofthe agricultural system in that region. So it's safe to say that if the world warmsup, as it looks like it very well might, Earth is going to look a lot different. We're witnessing one of the effects of aclimate change right now! Arctic ice levels have been the lowest scientists have everseen. So what happens if all the ice meltsé
