NASA recently published report detailing new magnetism on the Sun that will probably result in Major Solar Changes and destruction of satellite communications, GPS, Air Traffic, and Power Grids.
The report is published on HERE and clearly states that a new Solar Cycle is possible resulting from a knot of magnetism that popped over the sun's eastern limb on Dec. 11th 2007.
The report goes on to mention specific years which major Earthly impact will be seen. The exact quote which mentions these years states
"Many forecasters believe Solar Cycle 24 will be big and intense. Peaking in 2011 or 2012, the cycle to come could have significant impacts on telecommunications, air traffic, power grids and GPS systems. (And don't forget the Northern Lights!) In this age of satellites and cell phones, the next solar cycle could make itself felt as never before."
I find it quite a coincidence that this major happening is forecasted for 2012, as this exact timing correlates to the ancient Mayan prediction of the end of the dimension.
The 2012 (End Of The World) theory has been gaining much popularity the last few years. Some predictions include a great human consciousness awakening, the rise of the anti-christ, alien visitation and attacks, a polar flip, and a great alignment in which the Sun will line up with the center of the galaxy causing massive destruction.
Although we are not sure of the exact events that will transpire, the evidence is becoming clear that something is in store for us Earthlings.
Many people are starting to prepare both physically and mentally for the upcoming changes, but as of now, trustworthy guides on exact preparation plans are scarce. As this situation winds down, and we get closer to the predicted final year, we can only hope more information becomes available to us.
