Number 1 is the correct answer because the subjunctive mood is required.
This site gives a simpler explanation than the one I posted on your other question: http://www.englishpage.com/minitutorials/subjunctive.html

I would say #2 is correct the subject "the world" is in third person, just like 'it'.
Example - I was watching that girl and the way she walks. (Third person - she, so - walks)
