Yes , created by the government with the HAARP machine that has been invented and exists to control the weather.
Remember the birds that fell out of the sky or the fish that floated up all burned up. It was harp, that's not a natural catastrophe. Now with all the series of Doomsday Preppers and The Colony, they have subconsciously put in our heads that something horrible is going to happen. But I guess we'll see, what day was itf December 21st, 2012. How convenient for the government to have a date when we'll have the worst storm ever and also have a machine to create weather (hurricanes, tornadoes, etc).
I knew someone who worked for NASA who talked about this, but now you can find it all over youtube.com.
or... there is the truth in the earth's axis is getting thrown off in which I think March 23 we're suppose to have another big catastrophe because that is when we pass by the mysterious planet again. You can see it in the sky near the sun if you have really good sunglasses. It looks like a black dot in the sun. It's crazy, I read a lot on this from scentist and what they are watching for. But we'll see when it comes!
