Ok, we have been warned.
Now what should we do?
Carry on like business as usual?
Who needs to "run for their lives" and where do they need to run to? We are being warned of so many natural and man made catastrophes that
most of the earth, if you believe any of it will happen, is under some major threat.
1 - EMP attack that will send the United States and parts of Canada and Mexico back to the iron age for ten years or more.
2 - Yellowstone supervolcano eruption. That one would pretty much wipe out most of the Midwest and west farmland and ranches and eventually most of
the rest of the worlds food crops from the "Volcanic winter" effect.
3 - Nuclear war. Pretty much the same effect as the Yellowstone eruption but made worse by the nuclear fallout.
4 - An ELE from an asteroid or comet from space. The observatories looking for such threats are seriously underfunded and it is estimated that only
10% of what is out there has been evaluated for its threat potential. Add to that the fact that we have a massive blind spot because of the sun and
anything coming in from that direction would be invisible until only days before impact.
5 - Sudden crust shift. There are two possible causes for this one. First, Emanuel Velikovsky wrote about the possibility of an increasing imbalance
in the polar ice caps causing the crust to suddenly break free of the mantle and shift. Remember, the earth is a spinning body. He warned us about
that one decades ago. But there is a newer and potentially more possible cause. The magnetic north pole is shifting by 40 miles a year. At least two
airports have already had to change their runway markers to reflect the new north magnetic pole. But why is this a potential cause of the crust shift.
The answer is that the magnetic field is generated by the iron core of the planet. If the north pole is shifting that means the core is shifting too.
If it continues to shift slowly it may not cause a crust shift but there is another danger to be mentioned below in another section. However, if it
reaches a "tipping point" and finishes with a quick flip flop it could be the cause of the biblical prophecy of all the islands sinking and all the
mountains being leveled.
6 - Solar flares and coronal mass ejections. This one could cause the same problems as an EMP attack but on a larger global scale. This one could also
be augmented by the weakening of the magnetic field of the earth that is happening along with the pole shift mentioned in item 5. A weakened magnetic
field could leave us vulnerable to even a moderate solar flare / coronal mass ejection. If the magnetic field disappears almost completely we could
even be wiped out by just normal solar radiation.
7 - CFC's destroying our ozone layer. The ozone layer is our second line of defense against solar radiation. It blocks the high energy ultraviolet
rays that would cause harm in many ways, like killing plant life, causing cancer, and more.
8 - Global warming or new ice age. This one depends on which of the scientific alarmists you listen to. One group declares that we are actually headed
toward another ice age and most of the world would be buried under glaciers. The other group says we will be inundated by as much as 200 meters of
water if global warming continues and melts all the ice that is currently on land. That means that almost all of the islands and island nations would
be sunk as well as huge amounts of low lying coastal areas.
There are several more "threats" but from here on they become much more far fetched and improbable.
