Mother earth turning on us in the most destructive ways. Mankind fighting for survival. The earth turning into some alien planet that we no longer recognize. Is devastation in the year 2012 a distinct possibility? Are the current earthquakes and violent storms a preamble to the climactic end? Are the prophecies and predictions starting to ring true? Let us keep an open mind and say this is the beginning of the end. What are some scenarios and possible outcomes in a world gone wild.

1] Rogue Asteroid Hits Earth.

Small meteors enter the earth’s atmosphere every day. An asteroid capable of extensive damage to the earth is not possible until the year 2036 [asteroid Apophis]. We now believe it may have been an asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. What if a major impact were to happen in 2012? First off, there would be an explosion.

A one kilometer asteroid will create an explosion equal to an earthquake of over 12 on the Richter scale. If the asteroid hits water it will create a mega-tsunami. Considering 75% of the earth’s surface is water, the chances are in favor of a wet landing. Due to holes in the atmosphere global firestorms will develop. This can also lead to a nuclear winter effect. All in all not a very pretty picture.

2] Cataclysmic pole shift hypothesis.

This is rapid shifts of location of the planet’s axis of rotation. This can lead to massive floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, and disrupted weather patterns. Again, another doomsday scenario. The last rapid pole shift was thought to happen over 200 million years ago. Are we due for another?

3] World War or Nuclear Event.

This is self explanatory. Mans inhumanity to man does us all in.

4] Global warming and environmental breakdown and intensification.

The earth turns it up a notch. Bizarre weather patterns, violent weather, earthquakes, solar events, global events. In other words…You have not seen anything yet.

5] The earth’s axial tilt aligns with center of the Milky Way.

What [if any] effect this will have on anything remains to be seen.

As the Mayan long count calender ends, we will be headed to the end of the year 2012. Hopefully we will all see 2013.
