Richard Noone, 2000
Richard Noone author of “Ice: The Ultimate Disaster” Three Rivers Press; (May 20, 1997), predicted that on 5 May, 2000 the planets of the Solar System will be arrayed in practically a straight line across space, subjecting Earth to enough gravitational distortion to tip the delicate balance.
"The continent of ice at the South Pole is now larger than the United States and Canada combined. As it continues to grow, pressure from the ice on the crust of the Earth will lead to tectonic plate movement, increasing the number of earthquakes and volcanic disasters world-wide," he said. When the planets align with Earth, they will significantly increase the centrifugal momentum exerted on the Earth's crust. "On that day, the ever-growing ice build up at the South Pole will upset the Earth's axis, sending trillions of tonnes of ice and water sweeping over the surface of our planet."1
