I've heard a few people on the boards talk about 'things' happening in 2012. I've been trying to research it using google, and its tough to sift
through all the London 2012 Olympic stuff, but I've found a Wiki Article about 2012
and I was quite
Apart from lots of Armageddon predictions, NASA predicts that the Sun will reverse its own magnetic poles during 2012 as result of reaching the end of
the current 11-year sunspot cycle.
Now, I'm quite into the theories that the Sun is the single largest cause of global warming (as obvious as that sounds, I guess by 'global warming'
I'm referring to the whole 'end of the world' warming stuff lol).
I agree that levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases do correlate with rising GMST (global mean surface temperature), but that does not
mean they have caused the temperature increase. As I've said to many people who shout the 'facts' of global warming: Correlation does not imply
Studies of ice age temperature variations have shown carbon dioxide levels increase after warming rather than before. The amount of carbon dioxide in
the atmosphere is pretty damn small, just 0.04% of the Earth's total atmosphere. The present levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are estimated
to be 375 p.p.m. (parts per million) – yet the Earth has been frozen with much higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; during the
Ordovician period the Earth was in an ice age with atmospheric CO2 estimated at 4,400 p.p.m!
I think that there is a far greater chance that our Sun, which is the size of 1,206,885 Earth's is causing any climate change, rather than 0.04% of
So what is it about the sun that causes Global Warming? Well in a nutshell, sunspots.
Here is an article that has a fair bit of Info on the sunspot-Global
So what does that have to do with 2012? Well, combining the 11 year cycle change in sunspots and global warming and we might see a sudden increase in
global temperature during that year. The many theories of Armageddon could yet come true. Better break the sunscreen out.
Anyone know of any other reasons why 2012 is suppose to be such a prominent year?
