(src)="2"> THE year 2017 began with a dismal proclamation by the scientific community .
(trg)="2"> AÑA 2017 a habri ku un deklarashon hopi tristu di e komunidat sientífiko .

(src)="3"> In January a group of scientists declared that the world just got closer to the worst catastrophe ever .
(trg)="3"> Na yanüari , un grupo di sientífiko a bisa ku mundu ta mas serka ku nunka di e katástrofe mas teribel di historia .

(src)="4"> Using the symbolic Doomsday Clock to illustrate mankind’s proximity to a global disaster , scientists moved the clock’s minute hand forward by 30 seconds .
(trg)="4"> Pa mustra kon serka nos ta di un desaster mundial , nan a hala wèizer di e “ Oloshi di Huisio Final ” dilanti ku 30 sekònde .
(trg)="5"> Segun e “ Oloshi di Huisio Final , ” aworakí ta djis dos minüt i mei pa meianochi .

(src)="5"> The Doomsday Clock is now set at merely two and a half minutes to midnight ​ — nearer to a global catastrophe than at any time in over 60 years !
(trg)="6"> Esei ke men ku pa promé bes durante e último 60 añanan e oloshi ta indiká ku un katástrofe mundial ta asina serka .

(src)="6"> In 2018 , scientists plan to evaluate again how close we are to the end of the world as we know it .
(trg)="7"> Na 2018 , sientífikonan tin pensá di bolbe evaluá i wak kon serka fin di mundu ta .

(src)="7"> Will the Doomsday Clock still signal an impending and unprecedented catastrophe ?
(trg)="8"> E “ Oloshi di Huisio Final ” lo sigui indiká ku un desaster mundial ta serka ?

(src)="8"> What do you think ?
(trg)="9"> Kiko abo ta pensa ?

(src)="9"> Is the world out of control ?
(trg)="10"> E mundu akí a bai for di man ?

(src)="10"> You might find the question somewhat difficult to answer .
(trg)="11"> Kisas bo ta pensa ku esei ta un pregunta difísil pa kontestá .

(src)="11"> After all , even experts are divided on this subject .
(trg)="12"> Wèl , ni ekspertonan no ta di akuerdo ku otro riba e asuntu ei .

(src)="12"> Not everyone believes in an inevitable doomsday .
(trg)="13"> I no ta tur hende ta kere ku fin di mundu ta algu inevitabel .

(src)="13"> In fact , millions of people believe in a bright future .
(trg)="14"> Pero tin miónes di hende tambe ku ta kere ku tin un futuro briante .

(src)="14"> They profess to have evidence showing that mankind and our planet will survive indefinitely and that our quality of life will improve .
(trg)="15"> Nan ta bisa ku nan tin prueba ku hende i nos planeta lo keda pa semper i ku nos kalidat di bida lo mehorá .

(src)="15"> Is that evidence credible ?
(trg)="16"> E pruebanan ei ta konfiabel ?

(src)="16"> Is the world out of control or not ?
(trg)="17"> E mundu akí a bai for di man , òf nò ?

(src)="17"> “ The Doomsday Clock is an internationally recognized design that conveys how close we are to destroying our civilization with dangerous technologies of our own making .
(trg)="18"> “ E Oloshi di Huisio Final ta un oloshi simbóliko internashonalmente rekonosí ku ta marka kon serka nos ta di destruí nos sivilisashon ku e teknologia peligroso ku nos a krea .

(src)="18"> First and foremost among these are nuclear weapons , but the dangers include climate - changing technologies , emerging biotechnologies , and cybertechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm , whether by intention , miscalculation , or by accident , to our way of life and to the planet . ” ​ — Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists .
(trg)="19"> Loke ta forma e menasa prinsipal ta e armanan nuklear ; pero tin otro peligernan tambe manera teknologia ku ta afektá klima , e bioteknologia ku ta surgiendo aworakí , teknologia di Internet ku por kousa daño permanente — sea intenshonalmente , aksidentalmente òf pa motibu di mal kalkulashon — na nos manera di biba òf na nos planeta . ” — Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists .

(src)="2"> IF YOU are apprehensive or scared outright by the barrage of bad news , you are not alone .
(trg)="2"> SI BO ta preokupá i tin miedu pasobra tin asina tantu mal notisia , bo no ta e úniko hende ku ta sinti asina .

(src)="3"> In 2014 , Barack Obama , who was then president of the United States , suggested that because of all the bad things reported in the press , many conclude “ that the world is spinning . . . fast and nobody is able to control it . ”
(trg)="3"> Na 2014 , Barack Obama , kende e tempu ei tabata presidente di Merka , a bisa ku e ta kere ku pa motibu di tur e mal notisianan ku ta sali den medionan di komunikashon , hopi hende ta konkluí “ ku e mundu ta drai . . . asina lihé ku ningun hende no tin kontrol riba dje . ”

(src)="4"> Yet , shortly after making that statement , he spoke passionately about current strategies to fix many of the world’s problems .
(trg)="4"> Sinembargo , un poko tempu despues ku el a bisa esei , el a papia ku yen di entusiasmo riba medidanan ku nan a implementá pa resolvé vários problema mundial .

(src)="5"> He called certain government initiatives “ good news ” and said he was “ fundamentally hopeful ” and “ profoundly optimistic . ”
(trg)="5"> El a yama sierto inisiativa ku gobièrnu a tuma “ bon notisia ” i a bisa ku e ta “ yen di speransa ” i “ sumamente optimista . ”

(src)="6"> In other words , he pointed to noble human endeavors as the means to control the world and avert a global catastrophe .
(trg)="6"> Ku otro palabra , el a duna di komprondé ku e esfuersonan ku hende ku tin bon intenshon ta hasi , por yuda kontrolá e situashon na mundu i prevení un desaster mundial .

(src)="7"> Many share his optimism .
(trg)="7"> Hopi hende ta kompartí su optimismo .

(src)="8"> For instance , some put their trust in science , predicting rapid advancements in technologies that promise to fix the world .
(trg)="8"> Tin di nan ta konfia den sientífikonan , kendenan ta pronostiká ku avanse rápido den teknologia lo por resolvé e problemanan di humanidat .

(src)="9"> One expert in digital technology and innovation confidently predicted that by the year 2030 , “ our technology will be a thousand times more powerful and by 2045 , it will be a million times more powerful . ”
(trg)="9"> Un eksperto riba tereno di teknologia i inovashon digital ta pronostiká ku na 2030 , “ nos teknologia lo ta mil biaha mas potente , i ku na 2045 , teknologia lo ta un mion biaha mas potente . ”

(src)="10"> He added : “ We’re doing pretty well .
(trg)="10"> El a bisa tambe : “ Nos ta hasiendo un bon trabou .

(src)="11"> While the problems we face have never been greater , our capacity to meet challenges is outpacing them . ”
(trg)="11"> Apesar ku e problemanan ta mas grandi ku ántes , nos tin mas kapasidat pa enfrentá nan . ”

(src)="12"> Exactly how bad are world conditions ?
(trg)="12"> Pues , kon malu presis e situashon den e mundu akí ta ?

(src)="13"> Are we really at the brink of a great global disaster ?
(trg)="13"> Di bèrdat un desaster mundial lo sosodé pronto ?

(src)="14"> Although some scientists and politicians preach a hopeful message , many people still feel uncertain about the future .
(trg)="14"> Aunke algun sientífiko i polítiko ta papia yen di optimismo , hopi hende ta sinti nan insigur tokante futuro .

(src)="15"> Why ?
(trg)="15"> Dikon ?


(src)="17"> Despite their best efforts , the United Nations and other organizations have failed to bring about nuclear disarmament .
(trg)="17"> Apesar di tur esfuerso ku Nashonnan Uni i otro organisashonnan a hasi pa logra desarmamentu nuklear , esaki no a duna resultado .

(src)="18"> Instead , defiant leaders scoff at arms - control laws .
(trg)="18"> Tin lidernan ku no ta hasi kaso di leinan internashonal di kontrol di arma .

(src)="19"> Countries with a history of nuclear weaponry are frantically upgrading their old bombs and creating new deadlier ones .
(trg)="19"> Paisnan ku tin un historia di armamentu nuklear ta buska tur manera pa remplasá nan bòmnan bieu ku bòmnan nobo ku ta mas destruktivo .

(src)="20"> Countries that once had no mass - destruction capabilities are now able to destroy huge swaths of humanity .
(trg)="20"> I paisnan ku no tabatin arma di destrukshon masal awor por kaba ku un gran kantidat di hende .

(src)="21"> This unprecedented nuclear preparedness makes the world a very dangerous place , even in times of “ peace . ”
(trg)="21"> E echo ku aktualmente tin asina tantu nashon ku arma nuklear ta hasi e mundu akí un lugá masha peligroso , asta ora , na moda di papia , tin pas .

(src)="22"> “ Lethal autonomous weapons systems that make ‘ kill ’ decisions without human input or supervision , for example , would be particularly worrisome , ” warns the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists .
(trg)="22"> E publikashon Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists ta atvertí ku “ e sistemanan di arma independiente i mortal ku tin kapasidat di mata sin intervenshon ni supervishon di hende ta kousa hopi preokupashon . ”

(trg)="23"> NOS SALÚ TA BOU DI ATAKE .

(src)="24"> Science can take us only so far when it comes to good health .
(trg)="24"> Loke siensia por logra riba tereno di salú tin límite .

(src)="25"> High blood pressure , obesity , air pollution , and drug abuse ​ — all risk factors for disease — ​ are increasing .
(trg)="25"> Faktornan di riesgo manera preshon haltu , sobrepeso , kontaminashon di aire i abusu di droga ku por kousa malesa ta oumentando .

(src)="26"> More people are dying from an array of noncommunicable diseases , such as cancer , cardiovascular disorders , and diabetes .
(trg)="26"> Mas i mas hende ta muri di malesanan ku no ta kontagioso , manera kanser , atake di kurason , atake selebral i diabétis .

(src)="27"> Growing numbers are disabled by other diseases , including mental illness .
(trg)="27"> I e kantidat di hende ku no por traha , entre otro , pa motibu di problemanan mental ta sigui oumentá .

(src)="28"> And recent years have witnessed the unpredictable outbreaks of such dangerous epidemics as the Ebola virus and the Zika virus .
(trg)="28"> Anto den añanan resien tabatin epidemianan inesperá i peligroso di e vírùsnan di Ebola i Zika .

(src)="29"> The bottom line : Sickness is out of the control of humans , and the end of it seems to be nowhere in sight !
(trg)="29"> Kiko ta e konklushon ?
(trg)="30"> Wèl , hende no tin kontrol riba malesa , i ta parse ku no tin solushon tampoko .


(src)="31"> Factories continue to pollute earth’s atmosphere .
(trg)="32"> Fábrikanan ta sigui kontaminá aire .

(src)="32"> Millions of people die every year from breathing contaminated air .
(trg)="33"> I e konsekuensia ta ku tur aña miónes di hende ta muri debí na problemanan respiratorio .

(src)="33"> Individuals , communities , and government agencies continue to dump sewage , medical and agricultural waste , plastics , and other pollutants into the oceans .
(trg)="34"> Instansianan di gobièrnu , komunidatnan i hende individual ta basha awa di riolering , sushi di agrikultura i médiko , plèstik i otro supstansianan kontaminá den laman .

(src)="34"> “ These toxic pollutants poison marine animals and plants , as well as humans who eat contaminated sea life , ” explains the Encyclopedia of Marine Science .
(trg)="35"> E Encyclopedia of Marine Science ta splika ku “ e supstansianan kontaminá akí ta venená tantu bestia komo mata den laman i tambe hende ku ta kome kuminda di laman ku ta kontaminá . ”

(src)="35"> And we are running out of fresh water .
(trg)="36"> I awa dushi ta kabando .

(src)="36"> British science author Robin McKie aptly warns : “ The world faces a water crisis that will touch every part of the globe . ”
(trg)="37"> P’esei , e outor Britániko Robin McKie , eksperto riba tópikonan sientífiko , a duna e siguiente spièrtamentu : “ Mundu ta enfrentá un krísis di awa ku lo tin un efekto rònt mundu . ”

(src)="37"> Politicians admit that water scarcity is largely a man - made problem and that it poses a grave danger .
(trg)="38"> Polítikonan ta atmití ku skarsedat di awa ta un problema hopi grandi ku hende mes a krea i ku ta forma un peliger hopi serio .


(src)="40"> More people than ever are killed or are otherwise adversely affected by these forces of nature .
(trg)="40"> Tormenta , orkan , tornado , tifon i temblor ta kousa inundashon , avalancha di lodo i hopi otro tipo di destrukshon .

(src)="41"> A study published by the U.S .
(trg)="41"> I nunka promé , asina hopi hende a muri òf sufri daño debí na e fenómenonan akí di naturalesa .

(src)="42"> National Aeronautics and Space Administration points to a greater potential for “ more intense storms , deadly heat waves , and more extreme flood - drought cycles . ”
(trg)="42"> Un estudio ku NASA a publiká ta indiká ku e chèns ta grandi ku lo bini “ tormentonan mas fuerte , ola di kalor mortal i siklonan mas teribel di inundashon i sekura . ”

(src)="43"> Will nature deal humankind a deathblow ?
(trg)="43"> Pues , naturalesa lo kaba ku hende ?

(src)="44"> Surely you can think of other grave threats to our survival .
(trg)="44"> Sigur bo por pensa riba mas kos ku ta forma un menasa pa nos eksistensia .

(src)="45"> Yet , you will not find satisfying answers about the future by analyzing all the bad things happening today .
(src)="46"> Some may say the same about listening to politicians and scientists .
(trg)="45"> Pero ni maske bo analisá tur e kosnan malu ku ta pasando òf skucha loke polítikonan i sientífikonan ta bisa , bo no ta haña kontesta satisfaktorio tokante futuro pa bo preguntanan .

(src)="1"> The predictions of the Doomsday Clock will not be fulfilled , because God promises a bright future for mankind and the earth
(trg)="1"> Loke e “ Oloshi di Huisio Final ” ta pronostiká lo no kumpli , pasobra Dios a primintí ku hende i tera lo tin un futuro maravioso


(src)="3"> THE dire state of the world today was foretold in the Bible many centuries ago .
(trg)="3"> HOPI siglo pasá Beibel a profetisá tokante e kosnan malu ku ta pasando den mundu .

(src)="4"> And what is more , the Bible specifically predicted a bright future for mankind .
(trg)="4"> Pero Beibel a profetisá spesífikamente tambe ku humanidat ta bai tin un futuro maravioso .

(src)="5"> What the Bible says should not be quickly dismissed in view of the fact that so much of what it foretells has actually been fulfilled in amazing detail .
(trg)="5"> Komo ku un gran parti di profesia bíbliko a kumplí kaba te den e detaye chikitu , ta bale la pena pa wak kiko Beibel ta bisa .

(src)="6"> For instance , consider the following Bible prophecies :
(trg)="6"> Laga nos analisá un par di profesia di Beibel :

(src)="7"> “ Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom , and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another . ” ​ — Matthew 24 : 7 .
(trg)="7"> “ Nashon lo lanta kontra nashon i reino kontra reino , i lo tin skarsedat di kuminda i temblor den un lugá tras di otro . ” — Mateo 24 : 7 .

(src)="8"> “ In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here .
(trg)="8"> “ Den e último dianan lo bini tempunan krítiko , difísil pa trata kuné .

(src)="9"> For men will be lovers of themselves , lovers of money , boastful , haughty , blasphemers , disobedient to parents , unthankful , disloyal , having no natural affection , not open to any agreement , slanderers , without self - control , fierce , without love of goodness , betrayers , headstrong , puffed up with pride , lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God . ” ​ — 2 Timothy 3 : 1 - 4 .
(trg)="9"> Pasobra hende lo stima nan mes , stima plaka ; nan lo ta bromadó , arogante , blasfemadó , desobediente na mayornan , malagradesí , desleal , sin kariño ; nan lo no ta dispuesto pa sera ningun akuerdo ; nan lo ta kalumniadó , sin dominio propio , feros , sin amor pa loke ta bon , traidor , kabesura , hinchá di orguyo , ku ta stima plaser en bes di stima Dios . ” — 2 Timoteo 3 : 1 - 4 .

(src)="10"> Those prophecies describe a world that some might say is spiraling out of control .
(trg)="10"> Algun hende lo bisa ku e profesianan ei ta deskribí e mundu akí ku ta bayendo for di man .
