a) 2012, Hollywood, The Pentagon and NASA: 'When Worlds Collide'
b) LIVE SCIENCE (07 January 2009) about 2012, SOLAR STORM and NASA:
A new study from the National Academy of Sciences outlines grim possibilities on Earth for a worst-case scenario solar storm... the next peak in solar activity is expected to come around 2012...Damage to power grids and other communications systems could be catastrophic, the scientists conclude, with effects leading to a potential loss of governmental control of the situation... 'A catastrophic failure
of commercial and government infrastructure in space and on the ground can be mitigated through raising public awareness, improving vulnerable infrastructure and developing advanced forecasting capabilities,' the report states. 'Without preventive actions or plans, the trend of increased dependency on modern space-weather sensitive assets could make society more vulnerable in the future.' The report was commissioned and funded by NASA. Details:

I think this whole thing is silly. OK, just because an ancient calendar ends that year, doesn't mean the world is suddenly going into chaos and ending. I think everyone is making a big whoop about this and trying to scare everyone else into believing it too. I'm not trying to stop them from making their movie, but i'm not going to be one to see it.

It's not just the Mayan Calender folks...there are 11 other cultures with ancient oral histories including the Zulu's in South Africa and the Hopi. Include the solar activity end of 2012, ancient Summerian 10th Planet (Nibiru) prophesy and there you have it. Too much info from too many ancient peoples and backed up up Science. It's going to happen. Make sure you're ontop of a mountain when it does. I will be.
