The article you point to doesn't say whether Mammoths were found Standind Up.
I read somewhere that there were Mammoths found that still had remmnants of their last meal and that was Grasses and other fauna was found in their Stomachs. This would point to the Ice Age hitting at a tremendous Pace.
The other thing I have read is that they now think Humans had something to do with the extinction of the Mammoth. If that were really the case, they wouldn't have found Wooly Mammoths frozen in the Permafrost.
It's been known for a long time that the Earth has gone through Magnetic Pole Reversals before.
If the Earth was to go through one in the near Future, I'm not sure what difference it would make other than a lot of Hikers and Mountain Climbers might get lost.

What might lead to mammoths freezing while still standing up / with the remains of last meal in stomachs...?
The real question is, if the temperature did suddenly plummet to ice age levels, how long would it take for a mammoth to die..?
PS - Antarctica used to be a temperate (perhaps even tropical) area

...He has a Phd in Geophysics and is very wise when it comes to this topic although most the answers I get goes way over my head.
He's not a certain believer in 2012 but he's certain that there is something effecting our solar system from the outside that is mostly being ignored by the mainstream scientists.

on an tablet found in agient sumerie.. was written that the sun came up in the west.....
But did the Sumerian's have compasses?
since when you need an compass to see on wat side the sun comes up? when it has chanced?
at the other hand i belief they had a kind of compasses....

That's what I was getting at.
Originally posted by lpowell0627A magnetic reversal literally switches the magnetic north and south poles. Compasses always point to north.
However, when you reverse north and south, the sun appears in the west and sets in the east, and remains as such until another magnetic reversal changes it again.
Insiders from NASA, DoD national military intelligence, SETI, and the CIA speculate 2/3 of the population of the planet could perish during the coming pole-shift caused by the passage of Hercolubus (Planet X). Another 2/3 of those that survive initially could pass away to starvation and exposure to the elements within 6 months. Most every secretive government agency in the USA is fully aware of what is expected and are readying themselves. The Vatican is fully abreast of what is expected. The public is not being warned and given their chance to prepare.
