What will happen to the planet 100 years from now? I really don't think the planet will be in devastating shape... even with a few degrees warming.
The planet will be fine, it's a big ball of rock with some soft squishy things moving around on it. There might be fewer species roaming about in the short term, but evolution will fix that, given a few million years. The loss in biodiversity will be a Bad Thing, but it'll only be temporary. The human race might encounter some difficulties too, but only from problems that we made for ourselves; I guess we'd better learn either to live with it (and avoid causing further damage) or to figure out how to find some other planet to go live on.
There have been growing concerns in recent years that defamation law in this country has come to be more protective of reputation than elsewhere in the world to such an extent that London has become the preferred location for defamation actions involving foreign parties with only a tenuous link to this jurisdiction.
This nudge should place the asteroid in an orbit at about twice the distance of the Moon. From there it can be studied and mined, they say.
we investigated a number of options for using widescreen formats more effectively with the goal that the total vertical space available for content was the same after we added the ribbon as it had been in Windows 7. We removed the header at the top of the main view and moved the Details pane to the right side (and also did a visual revamp of the pane) while keeping a one-line status bar at the bottom of the window where we show you critical information.
I don't like the ribbon layout, as it makes it hard to find less frequently used features than a menu system, but you can hide the ribbon if you want to. As far as I'm concerned, if they leave the context menu alone, I can cope with it...
30km away radiation levels are 10 times higher than normal.
Ten times higher than background radiation is nothing to worry about.
I think you need to do your research.
Likewise. According to this article: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03/17/fukushima_thursday/page2.html, the maximum dose the the nuclear plant workers are being allowed to be exposed to as a result of this accident is 250 millisieverts. As the article states, the LD50 (dose that'll kill 50%) is 4000 millisieverts. While I wouldn't want to get exposed to that level of radiation myself, it seems to me like the workers are being quite well looked after. The very fact that they've been evacuated at all suggests that they're making sure the workers are OK, rather than sacrificing them in a blind panic in order to regain control. Have a look at this: http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/RS_Attempts_to_refill_fuel_ponds_1703111.html - and bear in mind that the workers on site will, for most of the time, be in a heavily shielded room. Radiation levels near the reactors themselves are high, but at the edge of the site they aren't nearly as high, and have been dropping for some time.
The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
