Perhaps 2012 isn't such a far off notion afterall. In the past 5 years or so, things have gotten significantly worse. While i certainly don't beleive the world is just going to end on 12/21/2012, there's significant pointers that in just a blink of an eye in earth time, the past 5 years, shit has really started to hit the fan. Let's recap the past 5 years or so.... massive, stronger hurricanes (katrina, ike, rita, etc ) massive melting of polar icecaps - ClimateGate? crazy tornado season a few years back for th emid west xmass tsunami/ strongest earth quake ever recorded odd snow patterns... DC and other areas broke records by 200% and up. massive earthquakes everywhere in the past 4 months. hati, chile, a few days ago in china, and today there's one in new guinea at 6.3. Not to mention the oddities like Chicago, etc that never see quakes Massive rains -> flooding... RI and eastern CT just a few weeks back the eruption of the volcano in Iceland, of which, many volcanoes are known for erupting from outside forces - earthquakes shift the plates and the magma cells, etc giving it no where else to go but up. yellowstone, a Super volcano, is showing oddities that haven't been recorded before, perhaps leaning towards signs that its ready to blow. As many as 250 earthquakes int he area in as little as 4 day time frame. Some reaching up to 4.0's. And if it does? bye bye. Dead Man Musings: Yellowstone Eruption Days Away? So, what do you think? Are we in for a brutal 2 years as a planet? are these the last 2 years as a planet? Vote!
