I found this article on the nine news site.
Here is the link:

It shows that solar storms from the sun are soon underway (With a mention of the most active storms occuring during 2012) which will damage power grids, water supply and sewage disposal.
Is has been called "catastrophic" by leading scientists, believed to cause much more damage than the solar storms caused in 1859 that melted power lines and ignited widespread fires in Europe.

Is this the prediction coming alive?

This has nothing to do with the 2012 thing, this is the part of the eleven year cycle of the sun.

Take a look at this link.

solar cycle

Have a nice day.

Oh... sorry everyone. I was confusing single solar storms with the prediction solar storms occuring during a clash between the sun and nibiru.
The title of the article just caught my attention when I spotted it.

what's this they're trying to sell now? I never bought into man-made global warming, so it's hard for me to trust these guys. Of course, this could be exactly the purpose of it. could this be when they cry wolf truthfully?

"Oh my lord, melted power lines and fires!! EVery man for themselves!!!"

doesn't that sound kind of ridiculous?

Lets just hope the Earth's magnetic field is intact and not split open like it is now, and facing directly at the sun.

If it is, and a massive CME hits Earth without that magnetic shield in place, there will be alot more than melted power wires and fires.

Ever wonder what it would feel like to be UV rayed to death?

This is probably the next stage, except meteor strikes has been replaced with Sun Storms. Perhaps the realisation that Global Warming is being caused directly by the sun is their method of building on public fear.

The stage after this one will probably be threats from Extra-terrestrial intelligences.

The Cold War Nuclear M.A.D. threat
The so called "Overpopulation" manipulation
New Ice Age
Avian Flu
Global Warming
Economic Crisis

Sun Storms
Extra-terrestrial threats

Well, I've scratched this off of my list of "One Million Unknown Ways We Could All Die Tomorrow"!

My personal favorite would a "Gamma Ray Burst Frys Earth" directed our way by some obscure star hundreds of light-years away. THAT sounds fun!

I got to the thinking, aren't we having problems right now with a lack of solar flares?

Thanks, our future looks very promising and safe. I guess it's human nature to have apocalyptic thoughts all the time.

Starred and flagged.

This is a GOOD THREAD with a GREAT source.
I think it deserves some merit. There is no reason to come to this thread and disprove it immediately.

Yes, the sun flares have been a lot less lately.

You guys are getting slow. Fox news reported this early last week.

Darn, I just washed the dog for nothing! Added to that the Earth's magnetosphere is apparently extremely weak for some reason and they even measured a large hole in it. I would not put my money in a 6 year CD account now with this information.

You have bad information my friends!

there were no power lines to be melted in 1859.
you guys are retarded.

3 page thread on this started 2 days ago...

It may be a different section, but why fragment threads?
