Every 11 years for some reason the sun gets more active with solar flares and we get hotter. So this summer should be a bit warmer and then it will cool off again the following years and then heat up again. Every 11 years. 2012 is one of those years as was 2001 was a peak as well.
Not at all too unexpected.

Helaman 11: 9..And it came to pass that when Nephi saw that the people had repented and did humble themselves in sackcloth, he cried again unto the Lord, saying:
10 O Lord, behold this people repenteth; and they have swept away the band of Gadianton from amongst them insomuch that they have become extinct[we wish!] [note that the Gadiantons came back almost immediately in the history, unfortunately but truly]...
12 O Lord, wilt thou turn away thine anger, yea, thy fierce anger, and cause that this famine [depression?] may cease in this land.
13 O Lord, wilt thou hearken unto me... and send forth rain upon the face of the earth, that she may bring forth her fruit, and her grain in the season of grain.
Kaarno wrote:Dr. Jones, I think you have hit on something important here with relation to Helaman. I find it interesting that the book of Helaman in chapter 11 speaks of famine, and just a few chapters later in 13 it talks about money becoming slippery, and 15 Samuel the lamanite is also warning the Nephites of earthquakes prior to the death of the savior. We have drought, famine worsening with lack of crop production, and economic woes (slippery money) . Next up earthquakes?
