End of the world warning: This mass DISASTER could make countries DISAPPEAR

Stefan Rahmstorf warns of disaster for humanity
DISASTROUS consequences for humanity could happen if governments fail to take action and "time is running out", a scientist has chillingly warned.

Over 15,000 scientists from 184 countries have signed an open letter, which stated the greatest dangers to life on Earth and advised a responsible approach to dealing with the environment.

Climatologist Stefan Rahmstorf claimed that governments have not been implementing measures to prevent climate change and environmental disasters and "time is running out".

The professor at the Potsdam Institute for the Study of Climate Change said the international community needs to put more effort into stopping negative environmental trends, otherwise, the current situation could have disastrous consequences for humanity.

The German analyst also warned that if changes are not made, mass disasters could wipe out whole cities and islands.

He said: "We are witnessing an accelerated rise of the sea level, which in the long term, if not stopped, will lead to the disappearance of coastal cities and countries.

According to Mr Rahmstorf, the first climate warning happened 25-years-ago, however, the trend has failed to improve.

The open-letter called "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice" updated an original warning sent from the union of Concerned Scientists that was backed by 1,700 signatures 25 years ago.

But the experts say the picture is far worse than it was in 1992.

They warned that if the world does not act soon there will be catastrophic biodiversity loss and untold amounts of human suffering.

"We must recognise, in our day-to-day lives and in our governing institutions, that Earth with all its life is our only home."

The climatologist said: “For example, in my field of research, we can observe the ongoing serious increase in carbon dioxide emissions.

“Consequently, the increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is now higher than ever over the last 3 million years.

“All this, consequently, leads to the further growth of global temperatures.”

Mr Rahmstorf believes the prospects for improvement are relatively high and expects the new German government will take solid steps that will lead to the implementation of all climate goals.

“When we talk about climate, first of all, it is necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero.

“The fact that all countries, with the exception of the United States, have realised this is already somewhat a great success.

US ecologist Professor William Ripple, from Oregon State University, said: "Humanity is now being given a second notice.

“We are jeopardising our future by not reining in our intense but geographically and demographically uneven material consumption.

“By not perceiving continued rapid population growth as a primary driver behind many ecological and even societal threats.”

Earlier this year the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk issued advice on extinction causes with climate changes being one of the most likely.

Russia - A voyage to Russia, Eurasia.



















Historic & Contemporary
If ancient walled fortresses, glittering palaces and swirly-spired churches are what you’re after, focus on European Russia. Here, Moscow and St Petersburg are the must-see destinations, twin repositories of eye-boggling national treasures, political energies and contemporary creativity. Within easy reach of these cities are charming historical towns and villages, such as Veliky Novgorod, Pskov and Suzdal, where the vistas dotted with onion domes and lined with gingerbread cottages measure up to the rural Russia of popular imagination.
Arty & Adventurous
Whether you’re a culture vulture in search of inspiration from great artists and writers or an adventure addict looking for new horizons to conquer, Russia amply delivers. Tread in the footsteps of literary greats, including Tolstoy and Pushkin, on their country estates. Ski or climb lofty mountains in the Caucasus, go trekking or white-water rafting in the Altai Republic, hike around Lake Baikal, or scale an active volcano in Kamchatka – the variety of possibilities will make your head spin.
Off the Beaten Track
Russia’s vast geographical distances and cultural differences mean you don’t tick off its highlights in the way you might those of a smaller nation. Instead, view Russia as a collection of distinct territories, each one deserving separate attention. Rather than transiting via Moscow, consider flying direct to a regional centre such as Rostov-on-Don, Irkutsk or Yekaterinburg and striking out from there. With a welcome spread of Western-style hostels and hotels around the country and the ease of booking trains and flights online, it’s simple to organise this kind of trip yourself.
A small degree of perseverance will be amply rewarded: one of the great joys of travel in Russia is being swept away by the boundless hospitality of the people. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Winston Churchill both wrote famous lines about Russia being an enigmatic riddle. Embrace this conundrum and you, too, are sure to find yourself swept away by a passion for Mother Russia.

Ho Chi Minh City ( Formerly Saigon ). A voyage to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Asia.




 Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is Vietnam at its most dizzying: a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the country forward with its pulsating energy. A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here, and visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride.
From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, HCMC is a city of energy and discovery.
Wander through timeless alleys to incense-infused temples before negotiating chic designer malls beneath sleek 21st-century skyscrapers. The ghosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but now the real beauty of the former Saigon’s urban collage is the seamless blending of these two worlds into one exciting mass.


 

Moscow. A voyage to Moscow, Russian Federation,Eurasia.





























During any season, any hour of day, Moscow thrills visitors with its artistry, history and majesty.

Kremlin & Red Square

The very founding site of the city (and arguably, the country), the Kremlin and Red Square are still at the heart of Moscow – historically, geographically and spiritually. Feel the weight of this significance as you wander within the walls of the ancient fortress, marvel at the mind-boggling magnificence of St Basil’s Cathedral, and pay your respects to the revered leader of a now-defunct state. Moscow will move you. She’ll tantalise your senses, soothe your spirit, and boggle your mind; and it all starts right here.

Performing Arts

What is more thrilling than watching a nimble ballerina defy gravity, as she leaps and spins across the stage at the glittering Bolshoi Theatre? Or feeling the force of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, just a few blocks away from where it premiered more than a century ago? Or oohing and aahing as circus performers soar under the big tent? The classical performing arts in Moscow are still among the best in the world. Nowadays, even the most traditional theatres are experimenting with innovative arrangements, reviving lost favourites and hosting world premieres. Whether you appreciate the classics or experiment with the contemporary, the capital’s performing arts are sure to impress.

Communist History

The remains of the Soviet state are scattered all around the city. Monuments remember fallen heroes and victorious battles, while museums attempt to analyse and synthesise the past. See Lenin and Stalin – off their pedestals – at the whimsical Art Muzeon. Step into the Socialist Realist fantasy at VDNKh. Descend into the depths of the Soviet system at Bunker-42 Cold War Museum. And remember the millions who suffered at the Gulag History Museum. Nowadays, many fun or clever retro clubs and cafes give their guests a taste of the Soviet experience. You can even try your hand at Soviet-era arcade games (beyond Tetris).

Nightlife

People like to talk about ‘the city that never sleeps,’ but they should talk about Moscow. You don’t have to be a high-heeled glamour girl or a deep-pocketed man about town to enjoy the capital by night. Moscow has a club or a cafe for everyone, from nostalgia-rich retro to rocked-out indie, from contemporary-cool art cafes to let-loose dance clubs. And no matter where you spend the evening, all are invited to gather in the wee hours to watch the sunrise over Moscow’s golden domes and silver skyscrapers.
