Mountains are a potential place to be and thus an option to survive the cataclysm in 2012, but there are important conditions to take into account:
If you have decided on moving into the mountains in order to survive a catastrophic event like a polarshift, it is of the utmost importance that you choose a mountain that will remain stable. In case the mountain should sink into the ocean, the water, with its treacherous and unpredictable currents, will sweep you away without mercy.
Should the mountain rise, water will be of little concern to you; however, there are other dangers to be aware of such as rockslides and a phenomenon resulting in huge, deep mounds of small rocks given to slippage referred to as “scree”.
In his book “How to survive 2012″ Patrick Geryl makes and attempt to answer a very difficult question: If a mountain is going to move, is it possible to predict if it will rise or sink?
In The Path of the Pole, Professor Charles Hapgood makes some very interesting remarks concerning the subject of geological redistribution. According to him, it is indeed possible to calculate the probable movements of a mountain. He tells us that, when the entire crust of the earth shifts, diametric opposite points on the planet will be moved toward the equator and others, toward the poles.
To appreciate this description you will need to have a look at a globe. When you examine a globe closely, you will find that there is a small bulge along the line that represents the equator. This bulge shows how pressure on the poles, caused by the rotation speed of the earth, pushes the Northern and Southern Hemispheres together. During a massive polar shift, the area of the crust lying over the equator must shift with everything else.
For this to happen there needs to be enough force to be able to push the rigid crust that lies beneath the continents over the actual bulge at the equator. The portion of the crust that gets pushed over the equator will be forced to stretch, and the area of the crust that gets shifted toward the poles will therefore undergo compression.
Which Continents are going to Shift with the events in 2012?
It is important to know in which direction the earth’s crust is going to shift if you are to predict what areas will be affected when the lithosphere begins to expand and shrink. Europe, Asia and Africa are locked together and, therefore comprise a much larger landmass than the Americas combined.
Due to the physical laws of inertia and friction, it is a fairly safe bet that the continents with the least amount of mass will be propelled the farthest when the force of the polar shift is upon them. Therefore, because they have the least amount of mass, the continents of North America and South America will be shifted the farthest away from their original locations during the cataclysm. This leads to conclude that the risks will be on average higher in the Americas than they will be on the European-African-Asian continent. But there are many more factors to take into account. Imagine all these landmasses move and destroying nuclear plants for example. That brings another extra important element in the mix and to put in your calculations where (not) to be! But even regular cities could mean trouble because of the massive devastation. There will not be one building standing after the violence of such moving land has passed.
