Birds in wrong places



Possibly due to the oncoming pole shift?

...late December, scientists noticed that thousands of rare sea birds called red phalaropes were suddenly being seen on land in Northern California. These birds usually spend most of their time flying over the ocean and only land in the Arctic, where they breed. But now these rare birds are being spotted by bird watchers in San Francisco.

Non-Safe Places during a Global Cataclysm




If (as I believe) there will be a global cataclysm one day in the future, and if (as I believe) it will involve every kind of natural disaster imaginable - earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions etc...

So if THAT happens, I suggest being as far away from nuclear reactors as possible, for they will not be able to withstand a cataclysm, and surviving the aftermath will be hard enough without dealing with your own local Chernobyl as well. A quick glance at the map should give you an idea of the safest regions (hint: Australia).

Doomsday Seed Bank


It has started! This is the first serious governmental initiative to protect our future survival in case of a global disaster/cataclsym...

WITHIN a large concrete room, hewn out of a mountain on a freezing-cold island just 1000 kilometres from the North Pole, could lie the future of humanity.

The room is a "doomsday vault" designed to hold around 2 million seeds, representing all known varieties of the world's crops. It is being built to safeguard the world's food supply against nuclear war, climate change, terrorism, rising sea levels, earthquakes and the ensuing collapse of electricity supplies. "If the worst came to the worst, this would allow the world to reconstruct agriculture on this planet," says Cary Fowler, director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust, an independent international organisation promoting the project.

New Scientist has learned that the Norwegian government is planning to create the seed bank next year at the behest of crop scientists. The $3 million vault will be built deep inside a sandstone mountain lined with permafrost on the Norwegian Arctic island of Spitsbergen. The vault will have metre-thick walls of reinforced concrete and will be protected behind two airlocks and high-security blast-proof doors. It will not be permanently manned, but "the mountains are patrolled by polar bears", says Fowler.

Magnetic Pole Reversal


Earth's magnetic field - the force that protects us from deadly radiation bursts from outer space - is weakening dramatically.
Scientists have discovered that its strength has dropped precipitously over the past two centuries and could disappear over the next 1,000 years.

The effects could be catastrophic. Powerful radiation bursts, which normally never touch the atmosphere, would heat up its upper layers, triggering climatic disruption. Navigation and communication satellites, Earth's eyes and ears, would be destroyed and migrating animals left unable to navigate.

'Earth's magnetic field has disappeared many times before - as a prelude to our magnetic poles flipping over, when north becomes south and vice versa,' said Dr Alan Thomson of the British Geological Survey in Edinburgh.

Pole Reversalshappen every 250,000 years or so, and as there has not been one for almost a million years, we are due one soon.'

For more than 100 years, scientists have noted the strength of Earth's magnetic field has been declining, but have disagreed about interpretations. Some said its drop was a precursor to reversal, others argued it merely indicated some temporary variation in field strength has been occurring.

But now Gauthier Hulot of the Paris Geophysical Institute has discovered Earth's magnetic field seems to be disappearing most alarmingly near the poles, a clear sign that a flip may soon take place.

Using satellite measurements of field variations over the past 20 years, Hulot plotted the currents of molten iron that generate Earth's magnetism deep underground and spotted huge whorls near the poles.

Hulot believes these vortices rotate in a direction that reinforces a reverse magnetic field, and as they grow and proliferate these eddies will weaken the dominant field: the first steps toward a new polarity, he says.

And as Scientific American reports this week, this interpretation has now been backed up by computer simulation studies.

How long a reversal might last is a matter of scientific controversy, however. Records of past events, embedded in iron minerals in ancient lava beds, show some can last for thousands of years - during which time the planet will have been exposed to batterings from solar radiation. On the other hand, other researchers say some flips may have lasted only a few weeks.

Exactly what will happen when Earth's magnetic field disappears prior to its re-emergence in a reversed orientation is also difficult to assess. Compasses would point to the wrong pole - a minor inconvenience. More importantly, low-orbiting satellites would be exposed to electromagnetic batterings, wrecking them.

In addition, many species of migrating animals and birds - from swallows to wildebeests - rely on innate abilities to track Earth's magnetic field. Their fates are impossible to gauge.

MegaFauna Extinctions - A Mystery?



American Scientist have published a wishy-washy article debating whether humans or climate change caused the extinctions of megafauna at the end of the Pleistocene...

High-impact human hunting, referred to by archaeologists as "overkill," and climate change are the two most cited possible causes of the extinctions, but the role of each remains contested.


To me it is quite clear. The number of beasts that died in North America (millions) could not have been caused by humans, the ratio of kills per probably newly arrived human is too great. And climate change happens all the time... In my opinion a global cataclysm fits the bill - large creatures are more vulnerable when things topple over. Little creatures can hide in nooks and crannies. If scientists focussed on the size factor, and why it made a difference, they might one day arrive at the cataclysm theory as well.

No Earthquake / Tsunami (sigh of relief)


Not that this means the moon doesn't influence such things, it just didn't this time. A news item today speaks of how hard it is to predict earthquakes:

It's hard enough to predict when a ripe apple is going to fall from a tree, he said. "Earthquake prediction is much more difficult than that, because you don't even see the apple. It's underground."

Another Earthquake / Tsunami on the 21st/22nd June?


I very much hope not, but based on what happened 3 and 6 months ago, it is looking like, due to the combo of a full moon on the 22nd, and the winter/summer solstice on the 21st, we could be seeing another disaster on the news....

Death-toll of 4 billion in 2012




Well, according to one fellow. In amongst talk of time-travellers, stargates and "j-rods", is this:

"In 2012, the Sun will shower the earth with waves of energy, bound to the Einstein-Rosen Bridges that are clumped together at the Galactic equator." and that all of the "natural stargates" will turn on, causing "something wonderful" to happen, but that if we do not disable the manmade stargates first, the excess energy will cause the poleshift, "first magnetic, then geophysical". The result would be a minimum death-toll of 4 billion, according to Burisch.

Toba Super-Volcano in 2012?


I love this un-named India Daily reporter who seems to be on a mission to promote a possible 2012 doomsday by presenting what appears to be his own "scientific" evidence.



Simultaneous Terrestrial and Solar polar reversal in 2012 accompanied by recent tectonic movement as well as harmonic tremor in the area shows high probability of a mega volcano in 2012 in that area.
But, it is worth following the link below to see how big the volcanoes of the past were. Very scary and sobering.

Major climate change occurred 5,200 years ago


These days I am thinking that global cataclysms occur every 5000 years or so, alternating between major ones and minor ones - evidence for the last minor one:

Glaciologist Lonnie Thompson worries that he may have found clues that show history repeating itself, and if he is right, the result could have important implications to modern society.

...A professor of geological sciences at Ohio State and a researcher with the Byrd Polar Research Center, Thompson points to markers in numerous records suggesting that the climate was altered suddenly some 5,200 years ago with severe impacts.

Evidence shows that around 5,200 years ago, solar output first dropped precipitously and then surged over a short period. It is this huge solar energy oscillation that Thompson believes may have triggered the climate change he sees in all those records.

Indian Scientists Predict 2012 Doomsday


Gotta love India Daily, when they base this piece on the "According to some computer scientists working together with a group geophysicists and astrophysicists" - scientists without names. Oh, and the reporter's name is "Staff Reporter". I think it is all hogwash, but as Fox News says: you decide!



Earth and Sun both will go through a process of Magnetic Pole Reversal in 2012. This last happened millions of years back when the Dinosaurs disappeared. A private research and analysis company in Hyderabad is predicting a major upheaval in 2012.

Magnetic Pole reversal is a process when North Pole and South Pole reverse positions. When this happens, at some point of time Earth's magnetic field reaches zero Gauss which simply means, Earth at that point of time has zero magnetism. When this coincides with a eleven year cycle of Sun's Polar reversal, a major problem arises.

In the modern human history, such happenings are not recorded. Only Computer Models can predict the outcome. NASA recently has brought the public fear down by saying the Polar reversal will make Earth's Magnetism weak and erratic but not zero.

.....Recent extra-terrestrial UFO activities (in the last 100 years) point out that someone out there knows that something severe will happen. They may be creating a scenario where they can silently help us or even remove us to an unknown destination.

2012 in Bible Prophecy


The Bible Code hidden within the Torah may suggest final cataclysm in 2012 -- but even more interesting is how prophetic Scripture passages in the "surface" text of Old and New Testaments indirectly point to 2012 as the year as well, once you synchronize prophecied end time events with current affairs around the globe. Case in point:

IF 2012 is the year for this global transmutation, then it must also be the final year of Daniel's 7-year Time of Trouble to be consistent with Bible prophecy. That would make sometime this year, 2005, the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation... this line of reasoning also places WWIII (beginning shortly before the halfway mark where Antichrist sets himself up in the temple as God) sometime in 2008, and the Rapture sometime between now and then (for pre-tribulationists).

Now... what events does the Bible tell us will begin this 7-year period of tribulation the world has never seen and will never again see to such extent? The signing of a multinational peace accord between Israel and many nations, engineered and perhaps even presided over by the Antichrist himself.

[There is strong biblical evidence to suggest that "pre-tribulation" Rapture may actually mean "prior to the last 3 1/2 year period", which the Bible refers to as the "Great Tribulation", NOT prior to the beginning of the 7-year period, as is the widely-held pre-trib stance. Even though Antichrist engineers the false peace with Israel, and some of us may see him/her for who they are, the son of perdition is not actually "revealed" until the abomination of desolation, when he takes over the temple and declares himself to be God, halfway through the 7 years. This is also around the supposed time of the 7th Trumpet, of the 7th Seal, when Paul says we will be caught up in the air with Christ... "at the last Trump". I believe that Christ's "beginning of sorrows" references the first 3 1/2 year period of intense natural disasters, famine and pestilence.]

Now, what do we see in the papers? As of today, February 7, Israel and Palestine have announced that the Middle Eastern Peace Summit scheduled in a few days will herald in an official cease-fire to 4 years of massive bloodshed, and if things go according to everyone's plans, we will see an independent Palestinian state before the year is out, meaning Israel might regain use of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, or might at least begin actively rebuilding the Temple to commence animal sacrifices.

So watch for a Middle East peace accord to become official sometime this year. For all of you "Pre-Tribulationists" out there who think Rapture happens prior to this accord, you may be right... but don't lose hope if you see this accord come to pass and you are still here... it does not mean you have been "left behind", especially if you have not heard reports of people missing around the globe. It simply means the Antichrist has not yet been indwelt by Satan and formally "revealed" himself to be God, and that we will have a short time longer as we live through the beginning of sorrows, and the opening of the 7 seals and 7 Trumpet Judgments.

Long story short, if we see this Middle East peace with Israel come to pass this year, then that would not only confirm end-time eschatology as related to us through Scripture (the beginning of the final 7-year period), it will add much greater weight to the Mayan 2012 date for Earth's final transformation, and bring these two distinct areas of end-time speculation into synchronization. Things WILL become painstakingly more clear, with less room for error, the closer we get to "the end".

Unknown Energy Surges Continue to Hit Planet; Global Weather Systems in Chaos


by Sorcha Faal

www.whatdoesitmean.com 22 December 2004
www.globalresearch.ca 29 December 2004

The URL of this article is: globalresearch.ca

Editor's note:

The following report was released barely a few days before the Tsunami which swept South and Southeast Asia on December 26.

What is important in this report is that it points to a pattern of major climatic disruptions. In fact several disruptive climatic events took place within the months preceding the dramatic events of December 26.

On December 1, 2004 barely reported in the media, in one of "the largest weather events in recorded human history, 86,800 square miles of China was shrouded in fog, bringing transportation systems (especially air travel) to a virtual standstill throughout the country."

December 22, 2004

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to the Russian Academy of Sciences

An increasingly panicked global effort is now underway by the world's top scientists to understand an unprecedented series of 'blasts', energy surges, which the planet has been taking from an as yet unknown source which has been bombarding Antarctica with cosmic rays and disrupting Northern Hemisphere weather systems on a global scale.

The first of these cosmic ray blasts occurred nearly 5 years ago and have been increasing in their frequency and intensity since the end of November. The once normally darkened skies of the Northern Hemisphere's Arctic regions are now in twilight due to these blasts. Wayne Davidson, from the Canadian Government's weather station at Resolute Bay, located in the Arctic Circle, says about this mysterious lighting, "The entire horizon is raised like magic, like the hand of God is bringing it up."

On December 1, 2004 the largest recorded blast sent not only shockwaves through the world scientific community but also through the Northern Hemisphere resulting in one of the largest weather events in recorded human history when 86,800 square miles of China was shrouded in fog, bringing transportation systems (especially air travel) to a virtual standstill throughout the country.

As reported by the BBC in this article from October, 2002, "German scientists have found a significant piece of evidence linking cosmic rays to climate change. They have detected charged particle clusters in the lower atmosphere that were probably caused by the space radiation. They say the clusters can lead to the condensed nuclei which form into dense clouds."

These German scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg go on to say that their measurements "have for the first time detected in the upper troposphere large positive ions with mass numbers up to 2500", and "Our observations provide strong evidence for the ion-mediated formation and growth of aerosol particles in the upper troposphere."

What they hadn't expected to happen though has been the large- scale occurrences of this over the past few weeks, to include China on December 2nd and 14th and then India on the 21st, which is due to both China's and India's reliance on fossil fuels and the continuing degradation of their air quality.

The effects of these blasts have also been felt throughout the rest of the Northern Hemisphere resulting in such freak occurrences as, hurricane force winds in Paris , Germany, Canada, Russia, England and the United States on an almost simultaneous basis. Accompanying these hurricane force winter winds have been the massive cold fronts following them dropping normal winter lows to record lows throughout the entire Northern Hemisphere.

Though not yet at a point to acknowledge this publicly, some of the world's top scientists are beginning to see an astrophysical correlation between these cosmic ray blasts to our planet and an ever-increasing number of global events relating to atmospheric explosions of inbound meteors, such as those in Indonesia, where a meteorite was picked up by their Air Forces radar, China, where a meteorite explosion turned 'night into day' and Washington D.C. where one police official stated, "It looked like a ball of fire falling out of the sky."

The world's top scientists have begun coordinating with Dr. Eun-Suk Seo from the United States University of Maryland, and her team, in a 'search' for answers to the origin of these cosmic ray blasts directed from an unknown origin in space towards the South Pole and disrupting our global weather systems.

Under Dr. Eun-Suk Seo's and her international team's direction NASA launched a stratospheric balloon on December 20th from Antarctica's McMurdo base and have stated,

"The balloon, following circulation of winds high, will sail around the ice continent for about three weeks. During this time, data of great scientific interest will be gathered. These data concern flows of charged particles of highest energy (cosmic rays) coming from Space."

But as one Russian scientist said to us, and who wished to remain anonymous,

"Why this game? We all know what's happening"

--an apparent reference to the fact though these events are well known to both world governments and the scientific establishments they are beyond the understanding of the general public at large.

Whatever the end results these experiments reveal for these scientists, it remains an undisputed fact that this world of ours is facing a type of global cataclysmic event buried in our common geological past, and maybe, as some social scientists report, in our common ancestral memory also.

Tsunami underscores potential 2012 tragedy


As the death toll rises above 60,000, it might be easier to understand why I believe that the human race faces possible extinction in the not-too-distant future. The Earth has generated much, much larger catastrophes in the past, as recently as 10,000 years ago. And if they have happened before, they will happen again.

While I'm willing to admit I don't know what will happen in 2012 or whenever, what I do know is that nobody has prepared for it in any significant way...

How many people for a survival colony?


According to Anthropologist John Moore from University of Florida, the ideal number for a "space colony" is 160.



The "magic number" of people needed to create a viable population for multi-generational space travel has been calculated by researchers. It is about the size of a small village - 160. But with some social engineering it might even be possible to halve this to 80.

For a space trip of 200 years, perhaps eight to 10 generations, his calculations suggest a minimum number of 160 people are needed to maintain a stable population.

This would produce around 10 potential marriage partners per person, he says, and if this seems a small number, "think about how many people you dated before you got married".

"The decrease in genetic variation is actually quite small and less than found in some successful small populations on Earth," he says. "[Inbreeding] would not be a significant factor as long as the space travellers come home or interact with other humans at the end of the 200 year period."



Sounds to me like the ideal number of participants for a survival colony here on Earth. Either 160 people with 100% survival rate, or 320 people with a 60% survival rate, or.... I think we'll be lucky if any number of people prepare for 2012.

2012 and Bible Code agrees


Recent investigations into the actual truth behind the biblical Hebrew code discovered hidden in the text of the ancient scrolled Torah has been very accurate for events in the last century and even moreso in the last 4 years or so. The interesting point to make here is that the code does have a grid that engages the topic of the year 2012 as the year that all life on earth expires because of rock from space or asteroid. It pinpoints a date in the winter of the north continent in 2012 when all life is extinguished and the earth literally breaks into pieces. There are no events coded for any dates after that date which means that the cooincidence that 2012 is in the ancients texts and sent to us from whoever encoded the scriptures and the Mayan theories are pretty fairly obvious even to skeptics. Surprisingly NASA is more recently working on a bit of a conundrum surrounding a visitor heading toward our planet and expected to arrive on a collision course some time between the fall of 2011 and the spring of 2013. Hmmmm, perhaps the North American winter of 2012?????

My 2012 demise


Before I tell my story let me say that I knew nothing about the possible things that could happen in 2012 or the Myan Calendar until this last month (August ’04).

About a year ago I was playing around on the Internet and I stumbled across this site that could supposedly tell you when you were going to die, so for fun I thought I’d play along. The site asked specific medical and health (like, do you smoke?, what’s your general health? What’s your mental attitude? Do you suffer from depression?, etc). I am a healthy optimistic non-smoking male and after I answered all the questions the site shot back to me that I would die somewhere between September and December of 2012 (8 years!!!). I didn’t like that answer so I re-answered the same questions several times only I gave false answers to the questions about my health and I got back varying times of my death all beyond 2012 (2020 and up). Then I answered the questions again (several times) but answering the questions truthfully and each time I was told I would die in 2012. None of this bothered my however as I did not believe it. When I would allow myself to entertain the thought that I’d die in 2012 I envisioned that I would come down with cancer or something and die that way.

Then last month I was watching this program on the History Channel and it talked about how in 2012 the earth was going to go through horrific changes due to severe weather and quakes and the world we know will go through profound changes. I remembered that a year ago that Internet site told me that I would die in 2012. Now I’m interested in this 2012 business, the Mayan Calendar, etc and that’s how I ended up at this site. Now I’m beginning to wonder is there something to all this and if that site (that told me I would die in 2012) was correct would I not die from illness but due to the changing of the earth? If the Mississippi river becomes an inland sea and splits the nation in two (as the History Channel predicted) or California splits off from the rest of the nation (also predicted on the History Channel) will I be killed in all the earth’s upheavals?

This is frightening and exciting at the same time, but am I making too much of some silly Internet prediction? Should I be concerned? Does any of this really mean anything? Can anyone shed any light?

R.
