This way they can keep their new age pseudoscience selling books and raking in profits long after 2012 has come and gone with a whimper not a bang.
Pay no attention to world-class, genius Physicists... trust the guy on the internet with no facts.

No surprise that someone who just made up a bunch of stuff about drugs, the mayans, and their calendar is ill informed on what existed in the 1800's.
edit: A number of deaths from the Great Blizzard of 1888 were attributed to collapsing overhead power lines in New York City.
I never said there wasn't ELECTRICITY... I said there was no GRID. Big difference. Before Tesla harnessed Niagara Falls and sent AC power to NYC all they had was Edison's crappy DC that needed wires as big as your arm and generator substations every 1/2 mile.....and if we are not free to expand our consciousness with GOD GIVEN natural herbs (not DRUGS) ...then the Constitution isn't worth the hemp it was written on.
(quote from the late Terrence McKenna)
As for the Mayans.....for God's sake their astronomy and calendar was more accurate than ours up to a few decades back......don't you find this strange for a jungle tribe who used DRUGS in their shamanism? Did you ever stop to think that maybe that's where they got some of their advanced knowledge? Have you ever been in total and utter AWE from having a fantastic spiritual experience? Have you ever really known God? Somehow I doubt it. Geez don't knock what you have no knowledge of. All I can say is that alot of people are gonna be REALLY SURPRISED when they finally cross over. Because it will be absolutely nothing like what you think. Then and only then will you understand the true meaning of Reality and understand who you really are.

I think some people in this thread misunderstand what Michio Kaku is saying. 2012 has nothing to do with his prediction. He is not saying that it will happen this 2012. It could be any solar maximum year and he would be saying the same thing. At some point, it is going to be a problem, so we should be taking steps to prevention instead of waiting for something to happen before acting. He is just warning that during these times when the sun is at its most volatile, there is a very real risk.
Okay, tried to get the picture to appear on my post; clearly I don't know how. Whatever. Take a look at the supplied link, folks. It's an image of the sun's magnetosphere; see those loops? Those aren't from solar flares, they're the cause of the flares shape; the sun has multiple poles which are constantly shifting. This whole idea involving the sun 'flipping' is not scientifically based. If, and I do mean if, there were to be a significant shift in multiple poles, the ensuing magnetic pull between the poles themselves would contain the majority of CMEs.
