      The Coming of End of Time?

"THE signs are dire - a huge Antarctic ice sheet previously expected to be stable until at least 2100 has started to fall apart. If it goes completely, sea level will rise by up to 4.5m. Low-lying areas, including Bangkok, Bangladesh and London, could be covered by water..."

Another article termed Global Warming Likely Cause of Worst Mass Extinction Ever, which
suggests the possible cause of extinction for dinosaurs was not an asteriod, as what many may believe; but it was due to global warming. The article advocated the idea that the deaths for the dinosaurs were not abrupt, but a slow and gradual one, as the earth slowly heated up like an oven.

Global warming has always been a remote issue for me, yet after reading these articles, that idea doesn't seems so remote anymore. Have you noticed how much hotter the weather has gotten in the last couple of years? I remember today sitting outside Kopi Tiam for lunch, and it was literally scorching hot. At this rate, it wouldn't be long before the heat becomes unbearable.

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him."
REV 16:8

How apt this phrase from the Bible seems in this context. So are these signs that the End of Time is near?
