I have listened to many people talk over the last few years about what they think is happening in terms of 2012, weather changes, where we are in the cosmos, etc. With this in mind, I think the two segments on Veritas with Robert Felix offers a possible winning theory. He believes, after years of research, that we may be entering a new ice age. He bases his assumptions on hard science and thinks that it is part of the pole reversal process that comes around about every 11,500 years and is involved in the precession of the equinoxes. He has graphs that show how temperatures have dropped worldwide, and uses the past freeze in the Baltic countries as an example.
I won't go into all the details he lays out in his talk because it would take too long, but the gist is that in a magnetic pole reversal you find many of the same anomalies that we are currently experiencing. He believes that the earth warming is really the result of some 3,000,000 volcanoes under the sea that may be warming the water. The water temperatures rise, volcano eruption above ground cools the skies with ash, and you have the perfect set up for a new ice age. In the last ice age it was determined that rain dropped to the tune of 1500 inches per year causing glaciers to form over time because of the rain that turned to snow in the winter months. These events happened very quickly. There are mountains in central Oregon and rocks in Nevada that seem to suggest it could happen in less than 30 days. Woolly Mammoth found in glaciers had grass in their throats and mouth as though they had just been having dinner.
However, glaciers did not form everywhere. Seattle, Washington was under 4,000 feet of ice but Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, was not under ice at all. It essentially stopped at the Missouri River in a 15-story cliff of ice. Entering an ice age may mean only a change of temperature of seven degrees. Radical but survivable. By moving South one could easily survive an ice age. The climatic changes, coupled with the radiation, soot, buckyballs, and electrical storms are the problem. It's hard to grow food in that climate. Which begs the question - what can one do to protect their family in the event of a pole reversal?
Mr. Felix lives in Washington State with his family and friends and does not want to move at this time. He does have food and water set aside, however. As well as a place further South that has the same supplies in the event there is time to move. Science suggests that the animals that survived the last ice age were slow moving (lower matabolisms) and were not in the oceans where salt would increase electrical conductivity. The animals such as the crocodile and the turtle that were in fresh water survived mostly intact. (Although that doesn't explain the shark.) He believes that during a pole reversal carbon and radioactive materials rain down in massive quantity. The have found a band of carbon that literally circles the earth. Another thing they found on top of dinosaurs covered in carbon were diamonds! One would have to wonder what sort of electrical storm would cause diamonds to rain down...
If you don't have to run out into the holocaust you might have a better chance of survival. Those forced by need to find water and food would be at greater risk.
As an aside, I have heard, from more than one source, that if we are in a situation where it is dark for three days we are supposed to put blankets on the windows, seal the edges with tape, stay inside and not look out no matter how tempted. It is suggested that we play games and sing songs. (Sounds crazy, but file that away somewhere, just in case.) I wonder, after listening to Mr. Felix talk, if that is because of this massive dump of radiation? Could this event have been prophesied? Maybe because it's happened in the past?
In the end we are all in this together. Whether you put some dried foods in a pantry or live in the moment, it's nice to know humanity has survived such an event in the past and will surely survive again. But I'm feeling less and less inclined to pay a Carbon Tax.
