Handicapping the Apocalypse - The Top 10 causes

Recommended Posts

Armageddon in 2012? The truth behind the doomsday theories

 

Summary Telegraph article / 21 Dec 2010

 

1. Alien invasion/government confirmation of extraterrestrial contact

 

Evidence: Photographs, videos, official releases that prove how governments around the world have monitored UFO activity for more than 50 years, stories by abductees and other claims by campaigners. But do any of these suggest that we're about to be taken over by a race of grey humanoids with large black eyes at any time in the future, let alone in 2012?

Likelihood: 0.1/10

 

2. Nibiru/Planet X/Wormwood

 

Evidence: Very little. Some point to the 2005 announcement by Nasa that a 10th planet had been discovered on the outer fringes of our solar system and many think that it will pass close to the Earth in 2012. But this 10th planet is most certainly not moving into the inner solar system.

Likelihood: 0.2/10

 

3. Solar catastrophe

 

Evidence: There may be some correlation between the observed 11-year solar cycle and the time cycles seen in the Mayan calendar although this evidence is rather weak. But whilst a solar flare from the sun could cause problems such as satellite damage and injury to unprotected astronauts and blackouts, the flare itself would not be powerful enough to destroy Earth, certainly not in 2012. In the far future, when the sun runs out of fuel, most scientists accept that it will swell into a red giant and engulf the Earth. But rather than happening in 2012, this event will happen no sooner than five billion years from now. Last year a Mayan elder dubunked the claims, insisting that time will not "run out" on December 21 of that year. Apolinario Chile Pixtun said he was tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the end of the world. "I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff," he said last year. Nasa has also said that the world was not coming to an end on December 21, 2012.

Likelihood: 0.3/10

 

4. Magnetic pole shift

 

Evidence: Work by scientists at Princeton University and Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse, France, indicates that Earth did rebalance itself 800 million years ago. They studied magnetic minerals in sedimentary rocks in Norway and found that the north pole shifted by more than 50 degrees (a quarter the distance from pole to pole, in effect) in under 20 million years.

Other scientists have also discovered that seasonal movements in both polar regions do effect the positioning of the poles. But where the scientists and the "doomers" differ greatly is over the timescale of any potential pole shift.

While the apocalyptic visionaries believe such a switch could happen in a very short time scale, geologists think that it would happen over a period of one million years.

Likelihood: 1/10

 

5. Supervolcano

 

Evidence: Most of the concern about 2012 and supervolanoes centres on the so-called super-caldera underneath Yellowstone Park in the United States.

Satellite images have over the past few years shown changes in the the movement of molten rock 10 miles under the surface.

Wayne Thatcher of the US Geological Survey recently told Nature magazine: "We know now how mobile and restless the Yellowstone caldera actually is."

Nobody actually knows whether the caldera will blow or, if it does, when such an event could take place.

Likelihood: 1/10

 

6. World War III

 

Evidence: Today, the fears of a nuclear exchange centre on the rising power of China and the American response and the possibility of wars between India and Pakistan or North and South Korea escalating into global conflicts.

Likelihood: 1.5/10

 

7. Mass casualty terrorism

 

Evidence: Osama bin Laden famously declared a few years ago that his organisation has several nuclear devices but they were only a "deterrent". There has been some concern about several "loose" nukes from the former Soviet Union, particularly six so-called "suitcase" nukes.

But there is no evidence that al-Qaeda or anybody else holds nuclear weapons and several attempts by terrorists in the UK to make nerve or biological agents have proved inept failures. Nevertheless, concern now centres upon the instability of the Pakistan regime - a nuclear-equipped country - and fears that al-Qaeda or a Taliban group could topple the government and get its hands on nuclear weapons.

Likelihood: 2/10

 

8. Peak oil

 

Evidence: Peak oil is a near certainty but two questions remain: when will it happen and will the world have developed alternative sources of fuel in time?

M. King Hubbert created the theory behind peak oil in 1956 to accurately predict that United States oil production would peak between 1965 and 1970. The theory has successfully predicted the decline from oil fields and regions subsequently.

Optimistic observers do not believe that peak oil will occur before 2020 but admissions by some oil companies that they have overstated the reserves held underground have raised fears that we are at or may already have passed the peak.

A decline in investment in new oil fields and plant during the global recession has only served to emphasise our total dependence upon a finite resource.

Likelihood: 4/10

 

9. Bee colony collapse

 

Evidence: Apart from the loss of the honey crop, without the honeybee several crops key to human life would be wiped out, including the soya bean, cotton, brassicas, several kinds of nut including brazil nuts and almonds, grapes, apples and sunflowers, the source of a large proportion of the world's vegetable oil. Almost a third of the world's food is directly traceable to the action of bees. If they became extinct severe shortages, starvation, violence and riots would surely follow.

Likelihood: 7/10

 

10. Environmental collapse

 

Evidence: Few scientists dispute that the global average temperature has been rising for at least a century. This is despite rows over an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report into rising temperatures and another controversy surrounding the science behind climate change, dubbed “Climategate”, when leaked e-mails appeared to suggest that scientists at the University of East Anglia had manipulated climate change data.

The Government's chief scientific adviser Prof John Beddington has insisted that uncertainty about some aspects of climate science should not be used as an excuse for inaction. Nasa scientists have reported that the past decade was the warmest on record, proving that global warming had continued “unabated”. Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York, found average global temperatures have increased by about 1.5F (0.8C) since 1880, when records began.

Likelihood: 7/10

I worry about the bees. There was a shortage of aphids around in gardens this year. The result are piles (!) of dead ladybugs that used to feed on the aphids.

 

No mention of 11) We find out David Icke was right all along. There really is a NWO and they reveal themselves to all in 2012.....the global depression of 2011 leading to social unrest, shortages, war....and of course the new global currency, bancor......depression that was orchestrated by the NWO as a means of mass control. Likelyhood? hmmm..... the media will tell me what to think about that shortly. I'm guessing they'll say the likelyhood is around 0.0001/10

EARTH CHANGES / Weather Changes ...

 

Is climate being manipulated ?

 

Coast to Coast AM - 1 of 6 Weather Manipulation :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2ABOUFpDj8

 

In the latter half of the show, meteorologist Scott Stevens talked about such topics as weather manipulation, chemtrails, and orgone energy. Several years ago, he set up time lapse cameras to record the skies and study chemtrails, and learned that planes were up there measuring the geometry to entrain the jet stream or the flow of air. The secretive "powers that be" can measure the orgone, and apply electromagnetic solutions to change the weather and storm patterns, he detailed. "There's got to be a playbook they're working from-- so when we see these disasters like the fires in Russia and the flooding in Pakistan...this was something that they talked about weeks to months prior," he stated.

 

Scientists like Trevor James Constable gave them the playbook on how to manipulate the orgone or etheric energy back in the 1970's, and this knowledge has been misused, said Stevens. Project HAARP is probably used in less than 20% of the weather modification efforts-- "I'm honestly more concerned about...orbiting military satellites that have directed energy technologies on them," he noted. Stevens also spoke about his involvement with Blue Water Alchemy, a company that makes products with the alchemical Ormus, a monoatomic element said to have unique properties.
