Jesse Ventura and the End of the World
Culture and Society Author: Carlos Antonio Perez
Jesse Ventura and the End of the World
Most people know of Jesse Ventura, the ex pro wrestler and ex governor of Minnesota. You are impressed by his boldness or you laugh at his off-the-wall comments. What does he have to do with the end of the world? He is into conspiracy theories.In one of his TV shows he uncovered a little publicized scientific fact that I found very curious.
 
Undeniably, Jesse Ventura's character colors any response to his declarations. Nonetheless, in this particular program a guest, Joseph Lawerence, refers to a government report that is frankly disturbing. Why hasn't the media given it more coverage?
 
The report was commissioned by NASA and confirmed by the National Academy of Science. It forecasts a peak in solar activity in 2012-2013. It is not that the Sun's activity is any different than in the past. What is disturbing is that these scientists expect that it will peak in this time frame. And, that it  is possible that the solar storms can be as volatile as those of 1859 that fried telegraph wires. Why is that significant?
 
This is what the Natioanl Academy of Sciences has to say, "A contemporary repetition of the [1859] event would cause significantly more extensive (and possibly catastrophic) social and economic disruptions."
 
At first reading, that passage doesn't sound to ominous but consider this. NASA comments on that statement and estimates that the potential damage could reach 1-2 Trillion dollars. Hurricane Katrina's estimated cost in damage was between 80 and 125 Billion dollars, that is 1000 to 2000 times less! No one can deny that that is a lot of damage. Are we ready?
 
Life as we know it would dramatically change. Damage to our grid of that magnitude could take years to rebuild. The effect would be catastrophic. Refrigeration, fuel, lighting and more would be scarce or non-existent. Without electrical pumps, water in urban areas quickly disappear.
 
To add nails to the coffin, NASA's 5 Themis satellites with the mission of studying the earth's magnetic shield have reported holes in our magnetic shield. We can only guess at what effect a large solar storm might have on the earth.
 
Regardless of your thoughts about the Mayan 2012 prophecy, NASA and the National Academy of Sciences predict some unusual and potentially devastating events for the 2012-2013 time frame. That the time frame is the same as the Mayan prophecy, I leave it to you to draw your own conclusions.
