NASA researchers earlier this year released a report detailing the devastating potential of massive solar storms due in 2012 as well as the environmental and economic damage that solar flares could wreak upon the Earth.

"For scary speculation about the end of civilization in 2012, people usually turn to followers of cryptic Mayan prophecy, not scientists."

Don't forget 2012 is riddled with craziness all over. There's also an asteroid that's predicted to come within the range of earth's gravitational pull on Friday the 13th, 2012. It's not for certain if it's going to hit or not. It's only 2009, we have four more years to endure. OMG Friday 13th 2012?!?! My brain might actually overload from all of the superstitous-ness rolled together in one sentence! XD (...is the asteroid big?)

This is rubbish. NASA never put out any such report. This is an urban legend that was cooked up to make the 2012 threat sound legit. No one ever has a good link or resource for this belief and even a quick Google search shows only conspiricy theorys being discussed in the backrooms of the internet. Thank you, I was wondering who would be the first to call this out. NASA never released this news. And some of you seriously need to calm down.

I am sorry but we all know that the earth will collapse upon itself and be destroyed by the negativity of skeptics on 2012, we witnessed that terrible power when we destroyed the federation of light, so 2012 will be the day when our scepticism will bring about the apocalypse.
