Shattering earthquakes, massive tidal waves and simultaneous volcanic eruptions will follow. Nuclear reactors will melt, buildings will crumble, and a cloud of volcanic dust will block out the sun for 40 years. Only the prepared will survive, Geryl said, and not even all of them.
These may sound like the ravings of a madman, or perhaps the head of a small apocalyptic sect. But Geryl is not the only one who believes in the apocalypse. Thousands of people worldwide seem to be preparing, in one way or another, for the end of days in 2012. Survival groups exist in Europe, Canada and the United States. A simple Google search for “2012″ and “the end of the world” brings up nearly 300,000 hits. And the video-sharing Web site YouTube hosts more than 65,000 clips informing and warning viewers about their fate in 2012.
And what was that blocking out in Fox News>

personally i do think that something of significant historical impact will happen in the time around 2012. I think that there will likely be SOME sort of specific event that happens then, and likely relating to the astronomical phenomena(which is a known fact that will happen… not speculation) in some way.
but I don’t think its gonna be some sort of the worst case Y2K imaginings to the n’th power or any such nonsense. I think its much more likely to be subtle things.
I find people such as that, to be rather amusing and absurd. I mean why would nuclear power plants spontaneously melt down or things like that? I think against some of the things they think will happen, “the system” is more resillient than they think.
and I find little to suggest that things of the magnitude and breadth that they are so certain about, are even anything to expect.
