Obama took time out of his extremely busy schedule to deliver an address at the FEMA National Response Coordination Center in Washington.

With global warming, we are going to see an increase in disasters involving hurricanes and the like. As technology increases, the chance of a major disaster also increases because things like nuclear power plants. As the middle-east destabilizes, the chance of a nuclear or biological attack goes up. Hackers could try to take out electric grids across the U.S... The internet could go out.
I think Obama is saying that the current FEMA force might not be very helpful in the event of another Katrina.

It is important to define what the Galactic Alignment is in precise astronomical terms. (See the Glossary below for terms.)
The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator. This alignment occurs as a result of the precession of the equinoxes.
Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator (see diagram below).
The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997).
Thus, the Galactic Alignment "zone" is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 - 2016. This is "era-2012."
This Galactic Alignment occurs only once every 26,000 years, and was what the ancient Maya were pointing to with the 2012 end-date of their Long Count calendar.
