2012 Doomsday Scenarios

Asteroid/Meteor/Comet
This is easily the most predictable disaster for 2012. With recent discussion of "dark comets", we have become aware of the possibility of our planet being struck with little or no warning.

There are many of 2012 doomsday scenarios circulating these days. Some are pretty amusing and subsist inspite of having been debunked. Some are a little more frightening as they are real possibilities. Here are some of our favorite 2012 doomsday scenarios.
End of the Mayan Long Count Calendar
The ancient Mayans were meticulous skywatchers. They mapped the times and seasons very accurately by charting celestial bodies. With this knowledge they developed a 'long count' calendar… and it happens to end on December 21st, 2012 A.D. This date happens to coincide with a Winter solstice and an alignment of celestial bodies.



Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from our Sun
In 2009 NASA told us to be wary of solar storms, and warned of the dangers to America's ancient overloaded power grid. Being without power for a few months, in the developed world, is a lot more serious than most people realize.

Planet X / Nibiru
Planet X, aka Nibiru, is a planet that is said to only orbit close to our system every three thousand six hundred years. It has been predicted to pass close by the Earth in 2012, which could lead to the destruction of strong planetary forces outside of our galaxy. Nibiru is no small threat, and some claim that NASA has been suppressing information about this impending danger to avoid a massive wave of panic.

Flu Pandemic
Avian flu, Swine Flu H1N1 or some other nasty influenza mutation could spring up in 2012 and cause widespread sickness and death. In 2009, a flu pandemic broke out in countries around the world. A global breakout of resistant influenza would spell disaster like never seen before.

Supervolcano
A supervolcano is a Volcano capable of producing a volcanic eruption with ejecta greater than 1,000 cubic kilometers (240 cubic miles). Supervolcano eruptions are thought to run on a 74,000 year cycle. According to some geologists, the next super volcano eruption is due around 2012 based on that 74,000-year cycle. Many are pointing towards Yellow Stone National Park in America where Earth’s crust is wafer thin in geological scale.

Cosmic Alignment
What makes 2012 significant is that it coincides with the alignment of the center of the Milky Way galaxy, our sun, earth, and the large planets. A gravitational cosmic tsunami could cause the sun to scorch the earth

Magnetic Pole Reversal
pole reversals have been happening on average once every 400,000 years, with the most recent one being 730,000 years ago - so we are well overdue. Not only do we not know much about reversals, scientists are still unsure about how our magnetic field is generated.

World War 3

Alien Invasion

The most important thing to remember is not to panic. Oh yeah, and stock up on Twinkies.
