I am amazed at the number of people that don't get it. A pole shift is a very very bad thing. To think you will be able to survive by holing up in your bunker for a couple of years and then come out to plant your crops tells me that one does not appreciate the gravity of the situation. A pole shift will cause permanent climactic change for any part of the globe. The upset to the global ecology will be long term. This is why many species don't make it through. Its not a matter of surviving the shift itself, that, by comparison, is the easy part. For those counting on the lift, be prepared to be thrown from the frying pan into the fire. A primitive existence may be possible in some parts of the world if you are lucky. By primitive I mean you have breathable air, you have water that won't kill you, and you can scrounge for the little bit of protein that wanders your way, thats it.
If Velikovsky is right, there is little hope of having useable sunlight for a long long time. Volcanoes are prolific producers of noxious gasses and dust. Expect CO2, H2S, NOX, Arsenic, Lead, and many other nasties to climb to toxic levels just about anywhere. Microorganisms will be tossed into the air our immune systems havent seen for thousands of years. If that is not enough, dust will linger in the upper atmosphere for many years to come, blocking our life giving sun.
This shift is unique for us, the difference is population, we have available to us more knowledge, resources, economies of scale only achievable by many brains with the ability to communicate with one another. We do not have to settle for a 90% or 99% mortality rate. The fittest among us may be able to survive to propagate with primitive preparations, but we do not have to settle for that. We have know how called technology, some of it appropriate, some not, which can help us to improve our odds if we are willing to shift from being consumers of the fruits of technology and towards claiming it as our own. This may mean that instead of knowing how to use a water filter you may take the trouble to understand its composition and how it works. It may mean that you will have to take the responsibility to learn the fundamentals of ecology so you can rebuild it where nature can't or won't for your benefit. We do not have to be at the mercy of nature where we can command nature.
For those of you who get it, more power to ya.
For those of you who don't, food for thought.
