Nice chart

Could we also get an overlay of money creation from each of the central?  Correlation might not be causation, but I bet the charts would be pretty similiar across the board.

Whose numbers are they using? Was the definition of what is considered to be a flood, storm, etc consistent through the time period shown on the graph? Is this worldwide data? Were disasters in remote areas reflected in the old data (before satellites, fewer meteorological stations, thinner population) as opposed to newer data?

Does this graph show a greater awareness of natural disasters rather than an increase in disasters themselves.

People live in places they didn't before. In the past, if no one is hit by a natural disaster, is it still a disaster? It is all probability.

Crockett....
Not only awareness but as more people populate the place more stuff gets reported, more folks live in dumb ass locales like flood plains where they get flood insurance....
Like when the Venerable Fearless British Explorers on Expedition arrived somewhere in what to be Burma in the 1899's they found areas along the ocean which seemed pristine, unpopulated, etc... which winds up having been decimated years earlier by a tsunami. (From ancient lore of the locals)
None of the dead locals who'd ever even heard of the Brits had the courtesy to report it to the London Times
Plus, all sorts of shit is now considered a disaster which used to be just another day in paradise.

Looks a bit like the IPCC hockey-stick shit to me....

Same with New Orleans...a real head scratcher for the local injuns. The fact that its sinking into the muck will someday be promoted as localized "sea level rise" no doubt...lol.

If you go to eastern/southern Mexico or Belize, you will find plenty of Mayans. They speak Nhuatl. I heard one their priests say the Western world has completely misunderstood the Mayan calender. Dec 21 does not mark the end of the world (he said), it marks the end of an age. It is not a day of disasters and nothing particularly unusual is expected to happen. However, it is a demarcation between a corrupt age that is dying and a new age that is coming to birth. He said the current powers that be will mightily resist the dying of the old age, and kill many people in an attempt to stave off the inevitable. They resist the necessary birth of the new era because it will mean the end of their power and wealth. When asked who these people are, he said "They are those who stand behind the great financials and corporations that wish to twist humanity to their own ends. The transition will be full of turbulence and peril. There is no guarantee that the forces for good will succeed in birthing the new era. If they fail, the world will enter a darker age."

I don't know much about it, but he didn't sound at all crazy to me. All I can tell you for sure is, the Mayans make a fantastic Cochinita Pibil. Those dudes know how to do slow roasted pork.

The Mayans were reasonably decent astronomers and worked out the period of the wandering of the galactic center about the sky...no end of the world, just a decent watch.

You said it, galactic...What's outside of the galaxy?

I often wonder how one reads from outside of the known confines of our galaxy, local universe, larger universes?

Imagine a stream of thoughts (signals) sent from somewhere far far far faraway, and yet landed in no 'time'?

+10 Funny how people forget the Mayans knew solar & sun spot activity but entered into their own dark age.How did they know that?? In a word: Impossible. but they did. They question might not be what kind of age we will be entering but how they knew we were to enter an age such as this many years ago.

 Perhaps knowledge does not equate into morality over time. Perhaps their love of pork made them world connoisseurs of pork and suffered massive heart attacks from all the fat intake?

All I know is..something's up. Sup?

"The Christian god can easily be pictured as virtually the same god as the many ancient gods of past civilizations. The Christian god is a three headed monster; cruel, vengeful and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites."

Although I don't believe in the Bible as literal truth there's still a lot of good stuff in that book. And why the slight against fairy tales? Children's stories remain a great way to see the folly of the world around us. Just consider the Emperor's New Clothes, The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, The Ant and the Grasshopper and Henny Penny. That's really all you need to know to recognize the causes of the current crisis and to plot a solution as well.
