Scientists from the International Bureau of Weights and Measures based near Paris, say it is time for the world to axe the Greenwich Mean Time system of measuring the length of days. Instead they say we should use only the more modern atomic clock system.
They insist the proposal, which would mean no longer using the Earth's rotation when we measure the length of the world's days, has nothing to do with any approaching planet about to enter our solar system, though Britain's Science Minister David Willets points out that in any event the atomic clock system would eventually mean that our midnight would happen at noon.
'Eventually' of course is a somewhat less precise method of measuring the length of days than either the Greenwich Mean Time OR the atomic clock system! Indeed, if a speculated soon to return Nibiru is about to pay our solar system one of it's occasional visits we could soon find we will need to look to the atomic clock system in order to know what year we're in let alone what time of day it is. We could arrive at December 2012 as soon as next Monday morning - according to GMT!
