I'm only including things that I can verify to be 100% factual. If you can find a reputable source for your claim, I'd be happy to add it.

Before anyone says it, I suppose it's not 100% fact OBL died as they say. I'm including it anyways.

Northern Mexico is suffering "The Biggest Wildfires In History"; Source

The fires, called El Bonito and La Sabina, were caused by lightning strikes in mid-March and had burned 99,000 hectares (245,000 acres or 380 square miles) as of April 11. The fires are among the largest in Mexico’s history, according to news reports. The burned land is brick red in the lower image. Hot areas glow orange in infrared light, revealing the active fire front on the south and west sides of the burned area. (The orange horizontal stripes are satellite sensor artifacts.)

That site has a couple good pics.

ATS discussed this thread at the time.

According to Wildfire Today, the blaze that hit Arizona started in Mexico.

NASA also has an article:


Two large wildfires were also burning across the border in Texas, the Rockhouse Fire and the Deaton Cole Fire. As of May 2, the long-lived Rockhouse Fire had burned 313,323 acres and was 95 percent contained. The Deaton Cole fire had burned 175,000 acres and was 30 percent contained, said the Texas Forest Service.


And finally, the Weather Network . com stated that so far, 2011 has brought almost 8,000 wild fires to Mexico. Over 413,000 hectares of mainly grasslands have been destroyed, although they lost more land to fires in 1998.

So we are producing another laundry list for whatever reason. What is that supposed to mean?

Tossing a whole lot of whatever into a pile is a rather meaningless exercise. What is all of this supposed to mean?

The worst natural disaster in US history was back in 1900. Look up the Galveston hurricane.
The worst wildfire in the US was in Wisconsin in 1871. Look up the Peshtigo fire.

There are lots of such examples all over the world.

What do you think is so special about the laundry list being prepared int his thread?

Massive heat wave in July
Other strange weather anomalies

What's so strange about a heat wave in July? They happen.

Here are a few big heat waves from the wikipedia article.
Heat Wave

During a period of 160 such days from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924, the Australian town of Marble Bar set a world record for the most consecutive days above 100 °F (37.8 °C).

The 1936 North American heat wave during the Dust Bowl, followed one of the coldest winters on record—the 1936 North American cold wave. Massive heat waves across North America were persistent in the 1930s, many mid-Atlantic/Ohio valley states recorded their highest temperatures during July 1934. The longest continuous string of 100 °F (38 °C) or higher temperatures was reached for 101 days in Yuma, Arizona during 1937 and the highest temperatures ever reached in Canada were recorded in two locations in Saskatchewan in July 1937.

The heat waves of 1972 in New York and Northeastern United States were significant. Almost 900 people perished; the heat conditions lasted almost 16 days.

The 1976 United Kingdom heat wave was one of the hottest in living memory and was marked by constant blues skies from May until September when dramatic thunderstorms signalled the heat wave's end.


These dates are not recent.

Does anyone else believe, despite the measurable rising occurrences of oddities as described in the first post, that 2012 could bring self-fulfilling prophecies, simply because 1. people want something to happen, and 2. people will use it as an excuse to make something happen?

1. Self-fulfilling prophecies don't work with natural disasters, according to modern science.
2. This is a recent fear of mine. If nothing goes down, there's going to be a lot of 'crazies' with nothing to lose. Mass suicides won't be the problem. Mass shootings could be. Think of all the people stocking up on guns as we speak.. So i definitely agree with you on that second point.

2. Number of Class 5+ Tornadoes.
3. Yearly Animal die off to date.
4. Flooding, The Mississippi River rose to heights never seen before along its course through the states of Mississippi and Louisiana. At Natchez, Mississippi, the river surpassed 59 feet, breaking the previous all-time record of 58 feet set in the great 1937 flood.
5. Number of active Volcanoes.
6. (April – May) Flooding across Manitoba is believed to be the worst on record, with high waters topping the 1976 inundation that destroyed the Canadian province. The minister in charge of Manitoba’s disaster assistance relief funds estimated damage to reach millions of dollars and comparable to the record $70 million destroyed by 2009 floods.
7. (Jan 16) Brazil’s deadliest single-day natural disaster happened when torrential rains inundated a heavily populated, steep-sloped area north of Rio de Janeiro, triggering flash floods and mudslides claimed at least 511 lives.

Here you claim a number of records.

What Record Breaking events happened this year?
1. Japan Tsunami for that area.
2. Number of Class 5+ Tornadoes.
3. Yearly Animal die off to date.
4. Flooding, The Mississippi River rose to heights never seen before along its course through the states of Mississippi and Louisiana. At Natchez, Mississippi, the river surpassed 59 feet, breaking the previous all-time record of 58 feet set in the great 1937 flood.
5. Number of active Volcanoes.
6. (April – May) Flooding across Manitoba is believed to be the worst on record, with high waters topping the 1976 inundation that destroyed the Canadian province. The minister in charge of Manitoba’s disaster assistance relief funds estimated damage to reach millions of dollars and comparable to the record $70 million destroyed by 2009 floods.
7. (Jan 16) Brazil’s deadliest single-day natural disaster happened when torrential rains inundated a heavily populated, steep-sloped area north of Rio de Janeiro, triggering flash floods and mudslides claimed at least 511 lives.


1. The Japan tsunami you claim is record in what way? Number of people killed, height of tsunami? Distance traveled over the globe? What is the record?
2. The number of class 5 tornadoes since when? In one week, one season, one state?
3. I don't believe that this year the die offs are any greater than any year before.
4. So one river set a record.
5. The number of active volcanoes is not a record. Please provide some evidence for this claim. A laundry list such as the one above gives no comparison to any other time period.
6 and 7. Local events as was 4.

So what is this supposed to mean. You've posted some records which are vague or local records or simply not true. I do not believe that 3 or 5 are true.

There were 200+ Tornadoes in 2 days, in the same general area! Just butt out, Sterio.
