Quote:A COMPUTER MODEL developed in 1973 by a team of MIT researchers has predicted the "end of civilised life as we know it" by 2040, with a major change coming in 2020 - just two years away from now.

An apocalyptic computer model, processed by one of the world's largest computers in 1973, has predicted the end of civilization by 2040.

The prediction came from a programme nicknamed World One, which was developed by a team of MIT researchers and processed by Australia's largest computer.

It was originally devised by computer pioneer Jay Forrester, after he was tasked by the Club of Rome to develop a model of global sustainability.

However, the shocking result of the computer calculations showed that the level of pollution and population would cause a global collapse by 2040.

"At this stage, around 2040 to 2050, civilised life as we know it on this planet will cease to exist."

Now it's a big deal because an MIT computer starts saying the same thing that experts have said over and over and they were totally wrong NY is not under water and somehow the sun still rises.

1973 was the infancy of computer technology. I can't imagine that whatever "program" they developed back them has any significance now.
