It Is Time to Revisit Planet X / Nibiru
Modern civilization is facing the same tribulations as those that beset the ancient Mayan civilization and caused its downfall as a direct result of Earth changes. While some try to compartmentalize the Earth's many current freakish phenomena, one singular causality -- the largest increase in solar activity in over 400 years -- is clearly to blame. Clearly, our Sun is now perturbing all of the natural systems in Earth's biosphere to include: Widespread droughts, freakish heat waves in Europe, increased volcanism, and more major deep quake activity. This, in turn, raises the question: Could it just be a natural cycle of the Sun? Perhaps so, but an equally plausible explanation could be that our Sun is but one step away from the true causality -- an inbound Planet X-class Kuiper Belt Object (XKBO) such as the Planet Nibiru, mentioned in the ancient Sumerian texts. If so, the worst of it is yet to come.
This Story Begins with Our Sun
The Sun goes through a Solar maximum once every eleven years and reversed its polarity over its last maximum as expected during the last maximum. However, what was not expected as the manner in which the Sun appears to have heated up; and that it now seems to actually radiate more energy outward.
We are seeing much debate about what is behind the heating up of the Sun from recent observations. Yet, while science does agree that it heats up, it doesn't agree on why that happens.
One possible explanation has been disregarded by the "official" scientific community for what could either be a profound difference of opinion, or overarching political considerations of the funding kind. Given that YOWUSA.COM is not wedded to the politics of funding, we intend to address this explanation at depth.
The Solar Elephant in the Middle of the Living Room
The Sun may be heating up due to the influence of an external body reaching its sphere of influence and starting to interact via gravity and electromagnetics. It could be periodic in nature, but that period could extend much longer than the 11 year Solar Max period or even the 208 year period estimated by the Maya.
If it is periodic, we need to think on the order of approximately 3,700 years. In that case, this period could also very well get much more intense and severe in consequences soon for the inner Solar system, including Earth.

The Sun's brightness has been increasing steadily for the past 3 years. But there is no reason for alarm! The change is expected and astronomers predict that the Sun's radiation will start reducing again after peaking this year.
Astronomers at ground-based observatories have studied the Sun's activity for the past 400 years by counting the number of dark sunspots on its disk. Their records reveal a repeating cycle in which the numbers of sunspots hits a maximum approximately every 11 years. The two most recent cycles completed (identified as cycles nos. 21 and 22, corresponding roughly to 1974-85 and 1985-96), turned out to have two of the three highest peaks of activity ever recorded.
There appears to have been little or no long-term trend underlying the 11-year cycle of change in the Sun's radiation over the last 30 years. This is consistent with the findings from other ways of tracking solar activity. During this time, however, Earth's average surface temperature has increased by a few tenths of a degree. This suggests that factors other than the Sun are the primary cause of recent climate change. Even so, it is suspected that long-term changes in solar radiation contributed a few tenths of a degree of warming during the first part of the 20th century, and could contribute to future climate change. "To understand what that future change might be, we need to continue with high precision monitoring of the Sun's radiation" adds Dr. Lean.
The heating up, as we can see, is considered to be a periodic heating up of the Sun, correlating with the eleven-year cycle of Solar maximum. But is that really the case? Additionally, why do the effects of this heating up seem much stronger this time than the last few times around?
This Is Not Something New for the Inhabitants of Earth
According to the National Science Foundation, the Mayas knew the Sun would heat up from time to time, causing periodic droughts. Similarily, the present heating up of the Sun is again causing wide-spread drought across the globe right now. Could this be what destroyed Mayan society over a millennium ago?

The Maya were talented astronomers, religiously intense in their observations of the sun, moon and planets. Now, new research shows that something in the heavens may have influenced their culture and ultimately helped bring about their demise.
"It looks like changes in the sun's energy output are having a direct effect on the climate of the Yucatan and causing the recurrence of drought, which in turn influenced the Maya's evolution," said David Hodell, a geologist at the University of Florida, and the paper's lead author.
The 208-year cycle caught the researchers' attention because it is nearly identical to a known 206-year cycle in solar intensity, Hodell said. As part of that cycle, the sun is most intense every 206 years, something that can be tracked through measuring the production of certain radioactive substances such as carbon-14. The drought episodes occurred during the most intense part of the sun's cycle.
Increasing numbers of researchers are starting to attribute the ending of Mayan civilization to an enduring period of drought in Central America, or possibly several such periods.
In addition to this, ongoing studies of sedimentation in Yucatan as far South as Venezuela have turned up evidence of a prolonged dry period, which would have resulted in failed crops and the ultimate collapse of the empire.

WASHINGTON — A study of southern Caribbean sediments suggests that a century-long dry trend may have been the killing blow in the demise of the Mayan civilization, which had built pyramids and elaborate cities in what is now Mexico and part of Central America.
Within this dry period, said Hughen, there were years of virtually no rainfall. During those periods of extra dryness, he said, the Mayan civilization went through a series of collapses before its final demise. Hughen is co-author of a study appearing Friday in the journal Science.
Hughen said the Maya flourished in what is known as the pre-classic period before 700 A.D., building cities and elaborate irrigation systems to support a population that soared above a million. The civilization collapsed and many of the sites were abandoned early in the 800s. They were later reoccupied only to collapse again, with some cities deserted in 860 and others in 910.
Over the last month, Europe has been suffering from the worst heat wave in over a century. All-time temperature records have been broken in several countries: England, Germany and Switzerland, to name but a few. Thousands of mostly elderly people across the continent succumbed to the heat and died. Where last year water-related problems, such as flooding of major rivers, dominated the news, now it's a scorching drought that has Europe in its grip as witnessed by the horrendous death toll in France.

PARIS President Jacques Chirac promised measures to correct failings in France's health service Thursday in his first words on a deadly heat wave estimated to have killed thousands.
Chirac spoke as his government minister for the elderly , Hubert Falco, speaking after a Cabinet meeting, told reporters that ‘‘most probably'' some 10,000 people had died from the heat stroke, though there was no specific figure yet available. The previous official estimate was 5,000.
Funeral home chain OGF, which holds about a quarter of the market, said it had counted 2,600 more deaths in the first three weeks of August than in same period of last year. It estimated that figure meant that more than 10,000 people died nationwide.
On Monday, Health Minister Jean-Francois Mattei said it was ‘‘plausible'' that as many as 5,000 people had died during the heat wave — the largest such government estimate until Thursday.
Health workers said one of the reasons why the death toll was so high was that families abandoned their elderly relatives alone at home while they went away for August vacations.
Chirac called the heat wave ‘‘exceptional.'' The heat wave was the longest and hottest to ever hit France, with temperatures that topped 104. He noted that ‘‘many fragile people died alone in their homes.''
The general opinion is that this heat wave may well be a phenomenon that is here to stay, as it is due to a climate change in the making. This climate change is believed to have been brought about by the actions of man. If drought was all we had, perhaps this might be true.
But drought is not all we are seeing in the area of strange weather phenomena. Across the globe, the weather has been acting up this northern Summer period. A record number of tornadoes has hit the US between April and June.

Even though the final figures for 2003 are not available yet, current statistics already indicate that this is a record-smashing year in the making. Already, as many people have lost their lives to tornadoes up until August as did over the entire year 2002. Nobody really knows why the number of tornadoes has increased by this much, nor why the month of May was so especially severe.
However, twisters are not the only problem (aside from the heat.) There is another phenomenon that is much more disturbing. It is an apparent change in the dynamics of the Atlantic Ocean. This ocean, with it's currents is the driving engine behind the climate of both Eastern North America and Europe.
A temperature drop in the Atlantic has been observed on the Eastern U.S. coastal areas, sometimes as far as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientists say it is due to a coastal upwelling, which happens when the wind blows off coast for some time and hence is perfectly normal to happen. While that must happen more often then, the current temperature drop is indeed remarkable.

David Quillin, a surfer from Maryland's Eastern Shore, knows what cold seawater feels like: It makes exposed flesh feel like it's burning, sets hands and feet to tingling, numbs the body and, after repeated dunkings, produces a painful "ice cream" headache.
The unseasonable chill started easing this week, but beachgoers from as far afield as Virginia Beach, Nags Head, N.C., Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Daytona Beach, Fla., have been curious about the precipitous drop. So many people have contacted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that William Tseng, an oceanographer at NOAA's Silver Spring headquarters, is investigating the phenomenon.
He's examining three possible causes: increased river runoff from this spring's frequent rains; a current of cold seawater snaking down from the North Atlantic; and an event known as "coastal upwelling."
On the other hand, said Dale Timmons, publisher of the Coastal Fisherman newspaper, the cold water lured chill-loving striped bass close to shore. "We had two to three weeks of great rockfish, which we don't normally get till fall," he said. (For his part, Timmons thinks the cold snap is the result of a recalcitrant Gulf Stream denying the mid-Atlantic eddies of warm water.)
