With all the end of the world and the Mayan Calendar ‘predictions‘, 2012 promises to be an eventful year for the doomsayers. I noticed on the news this morning that NASA reportedly had an early warning system via GPS stations all over the U.S. in high risk areas.
I started some cursory research and once I waded through the UFO, Mayan Calendar and Zombie Invasion (maybe those are Occupy peop’s) I came upon the NASA GPS press release. Actually, upon reading the press release, NASA is, I believe, suggesting the GPS sensors are not for predicting earthquakes, as the news suggested, but rather better determining the intensity and location for post earthquake responses by emergency management.
Another study was just released suggesting the ionosphere may hold the key to pointing to earthquakes in advance of the event. Scientist are divided, of course, but some suggest that electromagnetic disturbances in the ionosphere have arisen just prior to sizeable earthquakes.
Pick your poison to worry about: Mayan Calendar predictions, Big Government, Global Climate Change, Polar Bears, Genetic Engineering of our Foods….I personally would like to see improved abilities to predict tornados, better water quality management (but not oppressive, obscene reg’s) and to know if I would be safe on Bora Bora if the Mayan Calendar predictions are in deed true.
The Above Calendar is Considered by “Experts” to be the Aztec Calendar; the bottom calendar the Mayan Calendar
