“Global warming” – a big political game of the XXI century

Issues of climate change are in modern world politics is about the same value as the problem of nuclear disarmament during the Cold War. Few people then realized the differences between these or other warheads and how many units to be redesigned to something more useful on the farm, but the nuclear winter did not want anyone. And now the technical side of the issue is known in full only to specialists, but about what hazards threaten the world with climate change, they know everything.

In Europe, this issue firmly holds one of the first places on the importance: in many governments, new portfolios on climate and energy. And among the international corporations has become a good habit to devote a separate line, the contribution these companies have in the fight against climate change.

Scientists have found the top-10 “errors of nature.

Do you have any organs that you do not use? Scientists believe that there is. According to the theory of Charles Darwin, some “unnecessary parts of the body” show our connection with the ancestors, and perhaps someday fall off like the tail of a lizard. Here are the top-10 “errors of nature.”

4 scenarios of human evolution

Scientists disagree about whether to continue the evolution of man, wrote Luigi Bignami the pages of La Repubblica. National Geographic Magazine wondered about the future of mankind from an evolutionary point of view: whether people will develop further, or the process has been completed? The publication offers readers four basic scenarios.

In accordance with the first, the evolution has been completed. Supporter of this hypothesis is Jan Tattersoll, an anthropologist at the Museum of Natural History in New York. Scientists say that in accordance with the theory of the evolution of genetic innovation can take place only among isolated populations. And as people spread across the planet rather broadly, it is unlikely that a specific genetic change would be common to all mankind.

We look forward to in 2012 or 3797 will live to see

The ends of the world, as they are true friends of humanity – are with us hand in hand, starting from the time before our era, and accompanying us on this day. They attacked once in a century, and that almost every two or three years. If we pay attention to each of them, perhaps, would treat them as a kind of ritual. You look, and holidays would have appeared: the first day of the apocalypse, the tenth collision with another asteroid, the second coming Jubilee.

worldThe study of celestial bodies can be frustrating. But while scientists have come up with ingenious probes, interplanetary probes and other devices for research, simple huts, had nothing to do with high technology, managed to visit a guest on other planets, to meet with their residents and record their impressions.

Simple inhabitant such stories may seem nothing more than a fiction, an attempt to break away from reality. To this we can argue that the memories of their travels have left quite respectable woman.
