We live in the twenty-first century, but we do not fully understand what it means. Most people are involved in their everyday activity and they do not feel the wind of changes. Everyday we hear the news of natural catastrophes all over the world: earthquake in Japan and New Zealand, floods in USA and Australia, avalanche of gale-force blizzards over USA East Coast and unusually hot summers in Russia, the hottest in 1,000 years of history. At least 100,000 people died from earthquakes, floods and heat phenomenon. In Pakistan, record monsoon rains destroyed infrastructure, left thousands dead and millions homeless. Wildfires erupted across the countries, heavily damaging wheat crops and forcing Moscow to impose an export ban that raised global wheat prices. While diplomats and scientists pondered over an accord that could replace the Kyoto Protocol, 19 nations were experiencing unusually high temperatures, including 53.5 degrees Celsius in Pakistan, the hottest ever in Asia. The 2012 Mayan Prophesy is coming true – world is coming to an end!!!
