Many people around the world, numbering potentially in the millions, believe to one degree or another that December 21, 2012 is a date of some global significance. As it happens, these people are correct in a manner of speaking. However, the winter solstice of 2012 is not a date of unique significance, but rather the date on which an important interplanetary cycle reaches its apogee. Over the last 20 years, the Earth has been moving into a period of resonance whereby its opposition with Jupiter coincides with Earth’s northern winter and the solar maximum. These three elements will reach their closest coincidence in the last several hundred years during the winter of 2012-2013.
While dark energy is an integral part of Earth’s ecosystems; too much of it at one time can be problematic. The levels we are likely to encounter over the next three years or so are significantly higher than the normal for Earth during an ice age (i.e., the average for the last 2.5 million years or so). An excess of atmospheric and subterranean dark energy is capable of fueling several different types of natural disasters in terms of both incidence (i.e., frequency) and intensity (i.e., severity) throughout the northern hemisphere, with some effects reaching into the southern half of the planet. Of particular concern are persistent, severe winter weather, hurricanes, earthquakes and volcanic activity.
In astronomy and cosmology, dark matter is matter that is inferred to exist from gravitational effects on visible matter and background radiation, but is undetectable by emitted or scattered electromagnetic radiation.
In physical cosmology, astronomy and celestial mechanics, dark energy is a hypothetical form of energy that permeates all of space and tends to increase the rate of expansion of the universe.
When the space shuttle program's final flight launches next February, it will carry on board the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, a device designed to scan space. Using the AMS as it's parked in orbit, scientists hope to find evidence regarding two types of mysterious matter about which they've hypothesized for years: dark matter and antimatter.
The AMS detector was constructed and tested by an international team at CERN, which will also operate the device. The team consists of more than 600 physicists from 16 countries. They are organized under the sponsorship of the United States Department of Energy.

You do realise that it will be summer here in southern hemisphere right?
Why are all prophecies only suited to nthe northern hemisphere

Stop complaining. You're the only ones who'll be able to see Nibiru because it's coming directly from the south pole...... Take some photos for us will you?
