Why indeed. This is because they are NOT trying to fix it. This is a coverup operation to do more research on Planet X, a.k.a Nibiru. There are so many dots connecting this, what seems like on the surface as a bazaar conspiracy theory, that it would require a book to be written about the last 20 + years; That NASA has known about this approaching planet since 1982 - (published in the Washington Post in 1983). Roughly I can connect: Earth Changes ("global warming" NOT!) Increased sightings of UFO's, crop circles, anomalous events like the China, and the recent Norwegian sky swirl, even the invasion of Iraq in 2003, The Obama presidency and "Climategate". Many, many more Earth events that are happening are all related to one single event that is about to take place: The Earth pole shift / The passing of Planet X or Nibiru. Yeah, I know, it sounds crazy, but if you think about it, if you are old enough or wise enough, you know that Life events always boil down to simple causes. This IS the cause.
