Most plausible of your theories.
---- Pictures of the sun's "tornadoes"; our technology and study of the sun has increased dramatically so we cannot say that these "tornadoes" never
occurred in the past.
---- Sounds in the atmosphere; these are a bit harder to determine. Some could be hoaxed (dubbed sounds), a fun internet/YouTube meme, or something
really strange. This one I cannot say either way. A quick story, while not sounds, illustrates this. Last winter my coworker was picking me up and
I was starring up at the sky at the Luxor light they beam up. In the beam, there was reflective "orbs" swirling around the light. In my 5 years in
Vegas, never saw it and even he was intrigued. Turns out it was bats reflecting the light. The unknown is always the eeriest.
---- "Cloud Tsunamis" These are naturally occurring phenomenon and just because the person video taping them has never seen them, doesn't mean they
never occur. Warm air (moving at a faster pace) skirting over the top of cooler air (moving at a slower pace) produced them, to be specific,
Kelvin-Helmholtz waves. Fascinating footage and pictures, but nothing extraordinary in my opinion.
----- "Blood rivers" Documented time and time again. Eerie, but nothing extraordinary. Could be environmental, heavy sediment runoff, or similar
effects of "red tide".
----- The mass animal "suicides". I cannot comment much since I am ignorant on the subject. Would be interesting to hear a logical point on this
That is all I have made it through on the video so far.
The inclusion of the meteor over Britain is interesting. They happen all the time, albeit, not as prominent. Most occur over the largest unpopulated
portion of Earth; the ocean.
Solar flares: We are continually increasing our knowledge of the known solar cycle. I suspect our theories on the sun will evolve constantly for
years to come as our technology grows.
The "flash" on the newscast? Probably a transformer going out. Just my opinion though.
Tornadoes happen all the time. Weather is ever changing and our knowledge of this too is increasing. To say they are extraordinary considering our
recorded timeline of them, is being arrogant. Especially the newscaster saying "for all history"......
Overall, a dramatic video of what happened in 2012. Good for them too. Having a recorded history of events is what sets us apart from our animal
brethren. We can remember, we can attach emotion to them and we can reason them.
