Subject: British Scientist Puts Odds for Apocalypse at 50-50


The demise of civilization has been predicted since it
began, but the odds of keeping Planet Earth alive and
well are getting worse amid a breakneck pace of
scientific advances, according to Martin Rees,
Britain's honorary astronomer royal. 

Rees calculates that the odds of an apocalyptic
disaster striking Earth have risen to about 50 percent
from 20 percent a hundred years ago.
