  1. The type flash floods, snows, fire, earth quakes and volcanic eruptions are only going to increase exponentially. It relates to exponential increase in heat being released into the environment. Time and again nature has shown how she can punish civilizations that live in illusions and against her. There is a simple PRINCIPLE AND DESIGN on which she works to sustain the heat and temperature of earth within in limits. As she is pushed to limit she reacts. Knowing this is the only means we can survive from her fury. The catastrophic end to which the world is moving is evident. These types of destruction would exponentially grow till humanity awakens to truth. I by grace had predicted it and even personally wrote it to leaders of nations and organizations that determine our fate. But they live in ego and maximum illusion running after material gains and power. I am positive but I am not sure how much destructions, nations should endure before it awaken to truth - http://www.scribd.com/doc/161586906/Energy-to-Matter-Ratio-A-New-Vision-to-Understand-Global-Climate-Change-and-to-deal-with-it
