So far, Patrick Geryl estimates he’s already spent more than $130,000 on his survival preparations.

Author of “How to Survive 2012” and eight other books about a catastrophe destined to occur this year, Geryl believes that a shift in the Earth’s poles is going to result in solar flares, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that will throw the world into a nuclear meltdown. The dreaded event will occur on Dec. 21, when the Mayan calendar allegedly ends, he said.

Geryl plans to survive the turmoil in a small wooden bunker far from the nuclear radiation in South Africa, where he can live off the grid for about a year and rebuild a community with other survivors.
