    Well, I'm not well but I expect to last a bit longer than a year.  If you're talking about the Mayan calendar thing you need to understand that just because the calendar ends does not mean "the end".  It's the beginning of a new cycle.

    But, seriously, I expect climate change will bring about serious changes in the world in the next 50 years and humans don't have much longer, if any time at all, to get their act together.

    We need to lose at least 3 billion people from the planet as fast as possible.  We are already over populated and will increase another 50% in the next 50 years.  At that rate we are definitely doomed.

    To - ArefinShams

    Some theroies are that a large enough earthquake could shift the Earth's axis causing a magnetic reversal.

    NOTE: The 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chili this year shifted the Earth's axis - our days are a fraction of a second shorter than they were before.

    Another theory is a supervolcano - Yellowstone National park is long overdue for a major eruption - a volcano of that size could cast ash and debris into the air blocking out the sun for the next 1500 years.

    Then there is the Atom Smasher - debut test schelued for late 2012. Which could potentially create a black hole here on Earth.

    I'm not leaning eather way, I just wanted to share with you some of the theories. I'm still hoping for a zombie appocolypse, I think that would be the most interesting. smile

    At nicomp - very funny hub.

    Who knows, but wouldn't it be great if that's true.

    If you are concerned about the 2012 Mayan thing, I'd be more concerned with how fast the economy is going to have to grow to compensate for all the job loss and if it's going to be able to do such as that.

    No, not really. I don't really accept all of the doom and gloom reports. If you are talking about the Maya epoch, that's just talking about the end of one cycle and the birth of another.
    As for climate change, mankind has survived the ice-age, so I think that although we may lose a large number of the population, that as a species, we will survive. And ultimately, we do need to lose a large number of people. The planet just can't cope with so many of us living the way we do. So no, I don't think we've only got one more year left on Earth.

    No, I do not believe we only have 1 year left on earth. I believe though that there will be a big shift in the collective consciousness in the near future, and this change will grandly affect our way of living; in good ways and in bad ways depending on each individual's own consciousness.

    I have friends who think that 2012 will be the last year of earth...however, if they really believed that, they would be spending all of their money right now...or going heavily into debt right now.  Their actions don't follow their thoughts.

    I have no reason to think that 2012 will be the end of the earth.  I don't care about Mayan calendars, but if you believe that we are at the end of time, would you please put your money into my bank account at the end of 2011.  You won't need it.

    PS I also do NOT believe that the earth is overpopulated.  The resources are not being used properly, but that is the fault of politicians and corporations.  I wish that more intelligent Americans would have children.  America can certainly use more people...that is why the government keeps the southern border open.  Think about that for a bit.  We don't have enough people to fund the Baby Boomer retirement because Americans don't have children.  Stop listening to television and public school teachers. 

    China may be a different story because they may be close to the end of some of their resources, but in my world, smart people are being told not to have kids...to save the planet...WTF?

    You may be the person who has a child who will find a way to save the planet.  You need to have children so that we will have smart people to make the world a better place.
