Will the world end on Wednesday?
The European laboratory for particle physics (Cern) in Geneva switches on its Large Hadron Collider the day after tomorrow. German chemistry professor Otto Rössler apparently thinks it “quite plausible” that the “mini black holes” the Cern atom-smasher creates “will survive and grow exponentially and eat the planet from the inside”. So convinced is he that he has lodged an EU court lawsuit alleging that the project violates the right to life guaranteed under the European Convention of Human Rights.

Prof Llewellyn Smith, however, has assured Radio 4’s Today programme that the LHC - designed to help solve fundamental questions about the structure of matter and, hopefully, arrive at a “theory of everything” - is completely safe and will not be doing anything that has not happened “100,000 times over” in nature since the earth has existed. “The chances of us producing a black hole are minuscule,” he said, “and even if we do, it can’t swallow up the earth.” So, folks, who do you believe?

Out of sight, out of mind

A “plastic soup” of waste floating in the Pacific Ocean is growing at an alarming rate and now covers an area twice the size of the continental United States, scientists have said.

That is right a rubbish dump twice the size of the USA is floating in the Pacific Ocean. I have included a link to this story because I everyone I tell about it has not heard about this and refuses to believe me. Read more here
