2014 to be Worst Year of the Century

Updated on July 26, 2014

2014 Catastrophes Predicted in 2010 by Cambridge Professor

This article, written in 2010, by a Cambridge professor highlights his prediction.

If you don't want to go over and read his article, here are some highlighted quotes:

"A 'Doomsday' moment will take place in 2014 - and will determine whether the 21st century is full of violence and poverty or will be peaceful and prosperous, according to a Cambridge University professor."

"The U.S., he said, will become the key player in a series of make-or-break decisions and either condemn us to a century of violence and poverty, or usher in a new age of global co-operation."

"Everything, in the end, may depend on whether America can react more imaginatively to that decline than Britain was able to do in the years before 1914."

- Professor Boyle

Wars or Conflicts in 2014

It's only July and there have already been 71 conflicts in 2014. In comparison, in 2004, there were only 25 conflicts total, with the number rising each and every year leading up to 2014.

There are always small conflicts every year and the world usually doesn't take notice. In 2014, however, there have already been several big conflicts which made the world stand up and look.

1. Russian Military Intervention in Ukraine

2. Renewed Tensions between Israel and Gaza

3. Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant
