So far in 2011, we have seen a record number of tornadoes, unprecedented flooding, rampant earthquakes, disturbing volcanic eruptions and a tsunami in Japan that none of us will ever forget. So why are there so many natural disasters in 2011? Our top scientists seem to be at a complete loss to explain what is happening. It just seems like there is one disaster or emergency after another. Many Americans are getting “disaster fatigue” as the requests to donate money to various relief efforts never seem to end. There has never been a time in recent history when we have seen so many natural disasters compressed into such a short period of time. So exactly what is going on here? Is something causing all of this or is this all one big coincidence?Whereas some of the article is controversial (i.e. no such thing as global warming) it is thought-provoking none-the less. The article made me think and come up with some likely suspects:
- Are the current natural disasters caused by changes in the energy output of the sun?
- Is the earth’s core changing, resulting in significant volcanic activity which in turn is causing seismic activity.
- And what about polar shift?
