The lunar calendar and more accurately the Mayan long calendar predicts 2012 to be the date when the gravity of the planet Venus negatively affects the Moon's lunar trajectory and causes disruptions in the weather patterns on the planet Earth.
At the time, communities which were then dependent largely on agricultural industries, this was known as the beginning of the end times or the apocalypse. Now it has become known only as Global Warming.
The event of Venus' orbit pulling the moon away from us happens every so often and coincides with landmark claims and maps of human survival such as the book of Genesis and the predictions of the Maya.
In order to thwart this new enemy (or threat from outer space as I like to call it), we need to re-engineer the moons orbit back to a position agreeable with life on earth. This should be the sole focus of Global Warming talks and endeavours.
That new bomb the Russians invented should do the trick. Just detonate it alongside the trajectory of the moon and nudge it back into place. Do this every once in a while and we'll have a very nice planet to live on for a long time to come.
