When Do People Think That the World Will End? 

According to a poll done in 20 countries in 2012, roughly 15% of people believe the world will end during their lifetimes. The poll included 16,262 people from various countries such as China, Russia, Japan, the United States, Spain, Australia, Great Britain, Indonesia and Germany.

One in seven people taking part in the poll expressed a belief that the end of the world is near. The results did vary from country to country however. For example, 22% of poll participants from the United States said that the world will end during their lifetimes, whereas only 6% of poll participants from France felt the same way. The poll also showed higher rates of concern about the world ending among participants under the age of 35.

More about end of the world predictions:

•About 10% of people thought the world would end on December 21, 2012, the end date of the Mayan calendar.

•According to a poll published in Newsweek on November 1, 1999, 45% of Christians believe that the world will end at Armageddon, in a battle between Jesus and the antichrist.

•There have been possibly 100 or more wrong predictions about the date for the end of the world since the 1st century A.D.

Modern Rattitudes

Watch New York’s sewer rats discuss climate change


By Amelia Urry  on 4 Jun 2015     

You know how we talk about climate change as an existential threat to human civilization? There are a handful of thought-experimenters who suggest that, when the Antropocene does in all the “Anthro,” other species will inevitably move up into the ecological niches we vacate. The best candidate for the job? Rats.

Welcome to the hypothetical Ratocene.   ;D The Adaptors have the story about what a future rat-world might look like in their podcast this week — but they also got the on-the-ground scoop from rats on the ground. They’re surprisingly talkative: Watch the video above to find out the hopes and fears of some of New York City’s finest rodent residents. (Hint: They’re about as conflicted as we are.)

And if you haven’t heard The Adaptors yet — check yourself. The whip-smart tag-team of Flora Lichtman and Katherine Wells are taking on the very wacky world of climate adaptation in brand new ways, with a podcast that explores everything from human-made tornadoes and earth-bound stars to whether we should consider genetically modifying humans to be more climate-friendly (cat eyes, anyone?). Not to mention they’ve got the low-down on yak science, and a series of climate confessions I think we can all secretly identify with.

Confession time: We have a little bit of a crush (ok, we have quite a few) and we’re looking forward to seeing what they get up to next. If you agree, may we suggest you subscribe to the podcast?

Agelbert NOTE: Egocentric people will not enjoy the last part of the rattitude discussion. Narcissists will find it "irrelevant" and "boring".

Here’s the only explainer on California drought you need


By Abrahm Lustgarten, Lauren Kirchner, and Amanda Zamora  on 27 Jun 2015


SNIPPET:

Why do I keep hearing about the California drought, if it’s the Colorado River that we’re “killing”?  ???


Pretty much every state west of the Rockies has been facing a water shortage of one kind or another in recent years.  California’s is a severe, but relatively short-term, drought. But the Colorado River basin — which provides critical water supplies for seven states including California — is the victim of a slower-burning catastrophe entering its 16th year. Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and California all share water from the Colorado River, a hugely important water resource that sustains 40 million people in those states, supports 15 percent of the nation’s food supply, and fills two of largest water reserves in the country.

VW worker killed by robot in Germany

David Jolley
Automotive News Europe
 July 2, 2015 11:39 CET

FRANKFURT -- Volkswagen Group said a contractor was crushed to death by a robot at its German components factory in Kassel, north of Frankfurt.

The 21-year-old worker was part of a two-man team setting up the robot on Monday when it grabbed him and crushed him against a metal plate, a company spokesman told Automotive News Europe. The team was assembling the robot for a new electric motor production line. The man was resuscitated at the scene but died later at a hospital in Kassel, the spokesman said.

Some media reported that initial investigations indicated that human error was to blame, but the spokesman declined to comment on this, saying only that an investigation had begun into the accident.

The robot normally operates within a confined area at the plant, picking up parts and moving them around. It can carry out various tasks in the assembly process, the spokesman said.

The contractor had been standing within the production area with the robot when the accident happened, while his colleague was standing in the outer area, local newspaper Hessische Niedersaechsische Allgemeine reported.

German prosecutors are now considering whether to bring charges following the accident, German news agency DPA said.

According to VW’s website, the Kassel site is the automaker’s main transmission plant and supplies the VW group with about 4 million manual and automatic transmissions a year, in addition to producing body, platform and exhaust parts. It also reconditions old engines and transmissions.

They’re Laughing at Us…

Alien 1: “Lets zip over to Galactic Sector ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha where exists that one habitable planet overrun by its egomaniacal, carbon-burning organisms.”

Alien 2: “You mean the ones that call themselves ‘wise’, but which have completely disassociated themselves from their planet’s life-giving qualities. They have a very bad habit of wielding their technology in a half-hazard and suicidal manner.”

Alien 1:
“Yeah that’s the one. I’m surprised they’ve made it this far with all those mushrooming obliteration devices they have stockpiled.”

Aliens 1,2, & 3: “HA! HA!” Look at that! They’re cooking themselves with those carbon-burners… all to support a fleeting lifestyle of high energy and resource consumption.”

Alien 2: “Don’t they know it’ll all be gone very soon and they’ll be left with a moonscaped planet that has the temperature of Venus?”

Alien 1: “Some of them do, but most appear to be prisoners of their own self-indulgent delusions. They refuse to listen no matter how much the sentient minority jump up and down to try to get their attention.

It seems that this earthling species spends most of its time attempting to accumulate more and more of these paper and metal tokens by converting all of their planet’s resources into these fictitious symbols of wealth.”


Alien 3: “The situation looks to be rather grim down there. They don’t seem to have any sort of self-constraint. I believe one of their own even called their species a plague on the planet.”

David Attenborough

Alien 2: “Did anyone listen to him?”

Alien 1: “No, the few who heard him mostly just got offended and went back to the business of obsessing over economic growth and accumulating evermore of those paper tokens.”

Alien 2: “Really? Well, what if we install some emergency buttons at strategic locations around the planet to limit their activities? I’m sure the self-aware among them would consider activating such devices.”

Alien 1:
“Alright then. Let’s see what happens…”

"Together, we must save the planet (and DRILL, BABY, DRILL.)" - President Obama cartoon animation.
Quote
Obama:

Hello, everybody.  Greetings from the beauty and majesty, that is Alaska . . .

. . . where under the direction of noted survivalist Bear Grylls, I will be wrestling with my environmental self.

A time of retreating sea ice, permafrost melting, climate change— is a time to open up the Arctic to oil drilling!

More powerful storms and more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere mean— we must turn over sensitive habitat to Royal Dutch Shell.

We must come together to honor our obligation to the planet— and to oil leases signed under George W. Bush.

For we are the ones we’ve been waiting for— and by “we” I mean, a foreign oil company who will get the oil out of our ground!

We need not sacrifice what makes America great for short term gain— but, a seventy-five percent chance of an oil spill . . . is a chance I can live with.

So remember, when you see me on a melting glacier, an eroding beach, by a native— you can also see me approving Arctic drilling, okaying pipelines, and giving the nod to fracking.

For together, we must save the planet . . . and drill, baby drill.
