Floodings today happen as a result of the weather - lots of snow, it melts, rivers go out of the banks. In some cases as it happened around here, they may break a poorly constructed dam and flood villages and towns and take victims.
Earthquakes have an increased occurance and the number of disasters overall has an increase, the weather also marks a faster change than decades ago.
What are you trying to say, that there is no effect of snow melting? Huge amounts of snow melting can cause serious floods where there are rivers,enough to make disasters and flood towns/cities and cause the death of people. That's exactly what happened to two of our rivers. Are you arguing just for the sake of arguing?
As land is converted from fields or woodlands to roads or parking lots, it loses its ability to absorb rainfall. Urbanization increases runoff 2 to 6 times over what would occur on natural terrain. During periods of urban flooding, streets can become swift moving rivers, while basements can become death traps as they fill with water.
Now it is not only the Classic Maya that have attached great significance to this date or year, but either directly or indirectly so too have
other cultures, both ancient and contemporary, a fact that cannot
overlooked and must have a deeper, more profound meaning.
Does Nibiru exist? I do not know. It is certainly possible, but I doubt it - at least in terms of how Nibiru is portrayed which may well be a misunderstanding or mistranslation of the Sumerian records or myths from where it was mentioned.
This Solar Maximum is predicted to peak at the end of 2012, going in to 2013.
Well actually Mayanists believe that they know the answer to this question in broad terms, even though they may not understand the significance and/or consequences.
It is thought that the Maya were observing a cosmic process known as the "Galactic Alignment" which may be broadly defined as "the alignment of the December Solstice Sun with Galactic Equator, or Galactic Centre.
the model led to the conclusion that the desertification of North Africa began abruptly 5,440 years ago (+/- 30 years). Before that time, the Sahara was covered by annual grasses and low shrubs, as evidenced by fossilized pollen.
The transition to today's arid climate was not gradual, but occurred in two specific episodes. The first, which was less severe, occurred between 6,700 and 5,500 years ago. The second, which was brutal, lasted from 4,000 to 3,600 years ago. Summer temperatures increased sharply, and precipitation decreased, according to carbon-14 dating. This event devastated ancient civilizations and their socio-economic systems.
