Scientists worry state of our planet or more exactly they worry threats of life on the Earth. Global cataclysms took place in the past but then technological development did not allow to prevent these catastrophes. Other situation on our planet occurs now. Probably we can prevent local threats but we depend on the Sun in forward alternatively. Local threats are ecological, climatic, geodesic ones. The first and main threat is global warming in the result that greenhouse effect may develop. Excretion of oceanic methanhydrates can break thermal balance and if we will have gone a bifurcation point then green house effect is inevitable (it may be during nearest decades). We have created a group of scientists from different countries which want to change and minimize any threats for life.
First of all we propose four global positions:
1) scientists must take responsibility for fate of our Civilization;
2) we must adopt a long term approach and switch into psychological consumption of lasting life on the Earth;
3) ideology of agreement must be worked out between countries for cooperation in safeguarding of security of life on the Earth;
4) we must create the “Fund” for organization of the Center on protection of life as a prompt measure.
We hope to find some sponsors for construction of this Center. Your name as a sponsor will be fixed and be left in centuries.
We have held two conferences about future in Hungary (1999) and Germany (2005) and seminar in India (2012). Besides, we have prepared also "Declaration of Protection of Life and our Civilization" which can be found in the section "Documents".

Between 1990 and 2011 there was a 30% increase in radiative forcing - the warming effect on our climate- because of carbon dioxide.

11.12.2012 | A team of astronomers using the ALMA antennae in Chile has identified sugar molecules in the gas surrounding a young Sun-like star.The simple form of sugar found by ALMA is glycolaldehyde being one of the ingredients in the formation of ribonucleic acid (RNA) -macromolecule similar to DNA -which is essential for life on Earth.Finding such complex molecules around a star at distance s similar distance between Uranus and Sun means that the building blocks of life exist around new-born stars at the time of planet formation.
17.07.2012 | In July (11-15) a good organizing conference ESOF2012 (Euroscience Open Forum) took place in Dublin (Ireland). Near 4000 participants from 72 countries visited this event. Problems of our Future were actively discussed. Planets of solar system will be researched by robots. In 2016 a new mission to Mars is planning. An interest moment is that RNA was a key molecule for the origin of life on the Earth (big bang for life). Fractals in nature were arisen because of this distribution is realized for minimum energy. Global economic must be decarbonized to 2050 and besides a stagnate economics must be approved. All understand a climate problem (global warming) and even "Climate Justice" was created by Mary Robinson. Quick temps a personalized therapy is developed. ICGC (Intern. Cancer Genome Consortium ) was created by Germanian scientists. Life is a software of gens and it is necessary to check (genom card for each).
