World Should Prepare For Cataclysmic Global Flood, Warn Russian
MOSCOW. (Andrei Kislyakov, scientific commentator, for RIA Novosti)
(Traducción al Español abajo)
The world geological community is warning that today's seismic activity
on our planet is nothing compared with what's to come.
Over the past three years, Pakistan, for example, has been hit by dozens
of earthquakes. In March 2005, 80,000 people died under the rubble
there. On October 30, the last time nature went on the rampage, there
were hundreds of victims. Tens of thousands of people drowned during an
overwhelming Asian tsunami at the end of 2004. China and Afghanistan
have been rocked by quakes again more recently.
These natural disasters, which have
swept our planet in recent years,
indicate that the world has entered an era not only of a political, but
also of climatic instability. Most scientists - biologists and
environmentalists - tend to blame the human race for the catastrophic
climate change on the Earth. No doubt, the greenhouse effect due to
industrial activity plays a considerable role in global warming, but
there are other reasons worth considering.
The Earth is rotating around its own axis slower. The International
Earth Rotation Service has regularly added a second or two to the length
of a 24-hour day in recent years.
This is the main reason, according to Igor Kopylov, professor at Moscow
Energy Institute, why the planet - a gigantic electrical machine - has
had its energy balance upset. He expressed this viewpoint in 2004.
Kopylov is convinced that the Earth has entered the first phase of a
global change. A weakening of the Earth's
magnetic field was first
registered early in the 20th century, and a consistent drop in the speed
of rotation, in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It has been established
that when the Earth's rotation slows by one second a year, it releases a
tremendous amount of heat, hundreds of times the volume of energy
released by human industrial activity.
If we accept that all processes on Earth run according to cosmic cycles,
which, in turn, depend on the Solar System's position in our Galaxy,
then humankind may be facing another Great Flood.
The Solar System, including the Earth, travels through the Galaxy in
spiraling elliptic paths. The cycle time for the larger spiral is
200-210 million years, and for the smaller one, which determines minor
galactic cycles, 26,000 years. Correspondingly, half a cycle lasts 130
centuries. This period almost exactly coincides with the date of the
last Flood, the occurrence of
which was real. The myths and legends of
many peoples including that of the Bible recorded the event.
The Flood has been dated rather precisely: at 11,100 BC. If we accept
that the civilized society on Earth has been developing for 400,000
years, then this period saw 30 great floods, and we are witnessing the
beginnings of the thirty-first flood.
The cosmic cycles are so gigantically long by human standards that they
have little impact on the life of people, but the active initial phase
of the galactic cycle is of vital importance for the development of
civilization. In the view of Russian scientists, the Earth currently
finds itself at precisely this point in the cycle.
The transitional process in the electrical machine "planet Earth" can
divided into three phases. During the first - lasting 300 to 500 years -
a relatively quick change in the direction of cross current (according
to the law
of electric machines) will alter the Earth's magnetic field,
with the Northern magnetic pole shifting to the eastern part of the
Arctic Ocean. This change in the Earth's magnetic field is accompanied
by strong magnetic storms, earthquakes and disastrous atmospheric events
caused by a change in the circulation of oceanic waters and the
The change in the magnetic field leads to changes in the Earth's ozone
layer, which cause abrupt leaps in the biosphere's evolution owing to
the altered level of radiation. As the average temperature of the planet
rises, ice glaciers begin to thaw, raising ocean levels across the
The first, "warm" phase of the transitional period is the shortest
most active. This period witnesses a relatively fast braking of the
planet and the release of tremendous amounts of heat, leading to global
In the second phase, the magnetic field will
stabilize. The Earth will
slowly increase its speed of rotation, and the electrical machine
"Earth" will revert to near normal speed. The increased speed of
rotation will bring on a cold spell, the ice glaciers will regain their
mass, and the oceans will displace their former volumes.
In the third phase, the transitional period will end, the speed of Earth
rotation will stabilize, and the planet's energy balance will return to
the conditions of previous millennia.
Following the last Great Flood, people began migrating from East to
West. Are we now to see a great exodus to the East?
It looks as if we should give serious thought to developing Siberia ...
