Some people think that the sun will explode with massive solar flares and coronal mass ejections that will hit the Earth and cause the magnetic poles to reverse and the physical poles to shift, resulting in tidal waves thousands of feet high that will destroy most of mankind. Next November the movie 2012 will be coming out in theaters. The trailer shows a Tibetan Buddhist monk in a monastery on the peak of a mountain, ringing a warning bell. In the background you can see an immense tidal wave washing over the Himalayas and eventually it reaches the monastery and destroys it.

I don't know about you, but I don't plan on watching 2012 when it comes out. It's a doomsday movie in the same vein as the movie The Day After. The trailer sends the message that not even the prayers of monks can turn back the tide and even their remote mountain retreat isn't safe. I don't buy it. Scientists predict that the solar max of 2012 will be worse than the violent one of 2001, but it won't be the end of the world. It may disable satellites and disrupt communication, transportation, power grids, the internet and even ATM machines. Also, violent weather disturbances, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions may increase, and global warming, which is actually solar system warming may increase, causing the poles to melt and coastal cities to flood. But it won't cause cataclysm or incinerate the Earth as depicted in another doomsday movie, Knowing.

It's easy for people to become fearful about the sun and for movie producers to capitalize on that fear by twisting the facts, because the sun can be extremely violent during a solar max. Last April, I gave a presentation on 2012 at the Hearts Center conference in Phoenix. This article is taken from that presentation.
