Caribbean mass migration was a shocker. Does this imply a lot of people from the Caribbeans will be migrating to the U.S., or perhaps vice versa? I just don't see why this is considered as a possible contingency scenario.

While I applaude your exercise in logic, I can't subscribe to your vision of a benevolent government. All you have to do is look over original documentation and MSM headlines over the past 8 years to know that we-aren't-in-Kansas-any-more. Can you honestly loook at a picture of Bush, Cheney, et. al. and tell me you trust these people??
The question is not whether we can trust these people or not, but rather why you would not trust these people. Undoubtedly, we live in dangerous times and the U.S. government is not all that it is cracked up to be. Hwoever, if we examine these events closely as well as the organizational and social layout of our government, we see that there's no reason to think our government is actively carrying out a policy of harming of the American people. Rather, it is overzealousness, disconnect, and incompetence that is causing this.
If the U.S. government is truly carrying out some diabolical conspiracy, as you say, why would they do it? What would they gain from such a risky move?
If there's a disaster coming, other than the intentional economic meltdown, rest assured TPTB are behind it. My money is on 9/11 redux -- biological, chemical or nuclear.
There is no evidence for any of that. There really is no conspiracy. Such statements like the one above only shield the brutal reality of economic/financial crisis and terrorism.

Seems to many people don't know, are don't want believe what is going on.
Economic disaster, this would cause martial law loss of constitution and end to U.S.. Then comes North American Union, the Amero, all of Cannadas resources, all of Mexicos cheap labor. Look at new port being built in Mexico, the new super highway going to be built by Mexican contractor in U.S ..
Once this happens every thing will shut down until government can restore evrything food, fuel, power, water, control And our boys are ready to use leathal force if you do not comply, that's not talking about NATO troops and pivate Blackwater and such.
George Washington; said Government is like fire, poor survant and evil master.

I'm not sure I understand your point. You believe that the actions of our government are because of Armaggedon and not a predictable natural disaster?

Civil War, End of Days, Satan, Government, Religion, Conspiracy, New World Order... all of it based on FEAR
FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR!!!
yeah, alot is happening, things like this have happened before, and it can even happen in America. most likely it will, since most of mankind has a proven inability to learn from past mistakes. SOME of mankind however don't view them as mistakes, but failed attempts at a controlled agenda - and that is what IMO is about to happen now, another attempt at a controlled agenda to try to correct the mistakes made by thier predecessors, and folks will not like it.

This would indeed make sense. An increase in sun activity for the new sun cycle would also increase the rate at which our ice would melt. Saddly from everything that Ive read and heard about..... this is a perfect and reasonable situation in which these actions would be taken. Looking at those flood maps really is crazy.
Here i was hoping for some sort of alien invasion... humbug.
Maybe government isn't 100% evil. Perhaps there are extenuating circumstances we don't know about.

Do you not see the 'The Onion' logo in the bottom left of the video? Also, a quick google search will reveal there is no such Representative named John Haller.
[October 20, 2008, National Science Foundation] ANTARCTICA -- A U.S.-led, multinational team of scientists from six nations will pierce the mysteries of one of the globe's last major unexplored places this month.
Working every day at extreme altitudes, in 24 hours of sunlight and temperatures as low as minus 40 Celsius, the researchers of the Antarctica's Gamburstev Province (AGAP) team hope that the technology they bring to bear will help them answer the question of whether the Gamburstevs were born of tectonic activity in Antarctica, or date from a period millions of years ago when Antarctica was the center of an enormous supercontinent located at far lower latitudes.

The North Pole has become an island for the first time in human history as climate change has made it possible to circumnavigate the Arctic ice cap.
Last year the extent of sea ice in the Arctic reached a record low that could be surpassed in the next few weeks, with some scientists warning that the ice cap could soon vanish altogether during summer.
GISS began hastily revising its figures. This only made the confusion worse because, to compensate for the lowered temperatures in Russia, GISS claimed to have discovered a new "hotspot" in the Arctic - in a month when satellite images were showing Arctic sea-ice recovering so fast from its summer melt that three weeks ago it was 30 per cent more extensive than at the same time last year.
