I know there is a bunch of talk about the Mayan calendar shot and what not since we are fast approaching the day that ends the 13th cycle of their calendar. But how can we know it's not for real. It is known the people native to the Americas have been there for thousands of years. I'm sure they k ow what happens around these parts. They lived there for thousands of years and I'm sure they learned the cycles and were able to tell that some hit was going down in the time period we living in currently. Nostradamus had his books that he used to write things that predicted the future. On the history channel they would talk about the increase in temperature along the 44th parallel, which is the latitude of the grain belt which is the Midwest where the most crops are grown. We had temperature steady over 100 there. He talked about the lands burning and the west is literally on fire right now, 43,000 wildfires have been reported this year. West Nile just fucking broke out. The Mighty Mississippi can't hold commercial ships for much longer because it is way to low. So low that bumps at evening made south of new Orleans which is keeping the salt water from traveling up and contaminating the fresh water in New Orleans. A small town more south already has saltwater intrusion in their freshwater so they have to get bottled water until the rains come back to the Midwest. All of this seems to have come from no where. We were expecting record breaking harvests for this year, but the rain just never came and the heat wave broke over 3000 temperature records.
