How bad could this get? They usually get downplayed.



In response to defense-system vulnerabilities to an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, strike, the Defense Department has decided to harden all its “ground-, air-, maritime, and space-based platforms, electronic and electrical systems, subsystems and equipment.” Rather than after-the-fact remedial measures, the DOD directive said such measures will take place at the time of acquisition of military systems and equipment that incorporate electronics.

Should we expect earthquakes?
I predict 7+ near Alaska

It would be especially bad for diabetics in hot climates that require refrigeration for rDNA (GMO) insulin. Not to mention the others that require refrigerated medication. Then you have the possibility of shipping problems because of the possibility of many vehicles failing in the affected area(s). A lot of people could die these ways. Hopefully you live in an area that produces enough food to be able to stay alive if everything melts down!

I agree with you that it would probably not be 90%, but the deathtoll would stil be high.

Oh yes the spoiled food, it ends up at Walmart.

Ok thanks. Will check out your thread
I think the flares take about two days to reach earth

A search of NASAs website for sun spot ar 2151 gives no results. Any search for X class Sun flares show only results from last fall. How deeply did you research this? Seems like it's not true. NASA certainly has nothing at all about it.

Did you try to verify this at NASAs website? There is nothing. reply to: Trueman

A solar flare only effects the part of the planet facing the sun at the moment it hits. That will localize the damage and the rest of the world would be fine and able to help with the rebuilding of the electrical grid. a reply to: DataWraith

Because we can. Would you rather we suffer like the others? Sorry dude but we have the wherewithal to take care of ourselves and that's the way it going to be. Let the other nations catch up. Why should we lower our standards to be equal to their prehistoric ideas? a reply to: boncho

This has been predicted several years ago by remote viewer Major Ed Dames, and I believe the 'three days of darkness' the bible talks about in Revelations will follow.

Everything will change for the worse after the killshot(s) from the sun.

the game would run out VERY quickly! How many armchair preppers think they can bag a deer,moose,cow,you name it? Most would be wounding them at worst,or just scare them off.If they did manage to bag something,without proper cleaning and preservation,it will mostly go to waste,so they need to get another one! I'd like to see a survey of how many edible wild critters there really are.Divide that by 300 million.

If and when this happens - and I believe it will - the world will be a completely different place afterwards. There will be a lot of starvation. 'Brother will fight brother.' After about a week or two there will be no more food. Clean water will disappear. No electricity for months on end, no gasoline (remember the pumps are electric), etc., etc., etc.

How bad will it get? Cannibalism?

QUIET WEEKEND: Solar activitty is low. Not one of the sunspots on the solar disk has the kind of complex magnetic field that poses a threat for strong flares. This should be a quiet weekend on the sun.

Can someone easily verify this portion:




NASA and the National Science Foundation has estimated that if the U.S. sustained a direct hit from an X-class flare, it would cost the nation upward of $2 trillion in the first year and kill up to 90 percent of the U.S. population due to the lack of services, starvation and disease.



Has NASA and NSF really published those assessments before?

Holy crap!


Those figures have to be wrong.

If 90% of the US died it would cost more than 2 trillion.

The spirit of my comment was meant to convey regret for 'forgotten' survival knowledge of our human ancestors. If you didn't get that, so sorry to offend. If you did and still posted that, ok. Just want to make sure I was clear is all. It doesn't bother me if we disagree, as long as we understand each other's intent.

Have a good night.

There aren't 300 million preppers in the US.

Quite frankly people WAY over estimate their own level of knowledge and preparedness.

1. Most Americans aren't prepared physically for the rigors of life without electricity.

2. Physical fitness required for the kind of hunts that would need to be conducted to feed a family of four for a winter is not something that is common in the US.

3. Mental and emotional stability necessary to handle life without power, long winters, lack of creature comforts, and dealing with life in general would limit the survivability of millions people.

4. Skills necessary, the patience to use them properly, and adaptability of people in the 10s of millions are severely lacking. Look no further than the economic collapse. People were largely willing to accept their slice of misery rather than picking up and going to where the pastures were greener. Many people lack initiative. That lack of initiative comes from a total lack of practical and technical skills, to include survival skills.

5. Violence. Contrary to what we see in the news, the US is NOT actually an ultra violent place where most people are used to the sights and sounds of violent acts. On the contrary, most people are NOT violent. But those people, without the ability or the skills to defend themselves in harsh conditions, will fall prey to those who are willing to adapt to the new paradigm. Violence will explode, and most will not be prepared to deal with it.

I could go on. But I think I've made my point.

A solar flare powerful enough to disrupt power generation for an extended period of time would cause far reaching chaos in developed countries. It is NOT a situation in which I would find myself. While I do have the skills necessary, the training, and the experience, there is no guarantee that I would survive such a chaotic situation. the breakdown of society is not something that can be quantified and predicted at such a small level. If I have doubts about my own survival, knowing what I know, what do you think would happen to those who know nothing at all?
