Here's my problem with this video:
I don't consider losing satellites and TV to be catastrophic.
Before everyone jumps all over me, I am fully aware of everything that runs and functions using GPS, satellites, cable, etc.
Nonetheless, the loss of such things are not essential to life. Life as we know it maybe, but not life. Not what life SHOULD be about. This is of course assuming that the wonderful gov'ts around the world have thought to ground all flights, etc. Having all of the planes fall out of the sky, with the assumed loss of life that would be involved, of course would be catastrophic.
And frankly, the majority of people agree that we can't just continue on as we always have. The Earth is suffering, people are suffering, species are dying off -- perhaps this would be the swift kick in the tush we need to right all of the wrongs (OK....realistically SOME of the wrongs) -- minus (hopefully) the billions of people dying as others have predicted.

Can you back up your disrespectful claims with evidence of Dr. Kakus supposed off the wall claims? He is probably one of the brightest minds of our time. I guess I need to stay off ats until school resumes because I will end saying something to someone that just might get me banned.

It was about possible communications disruptions. Not a "Cataclysm in 2012". It has zero relationship to either the Mayan Calendar or any of the other 2012 doomsday theories.
I suspect that 2012 will come and go like most any other year and the odds are in favor of just that.
If the communications disruptions are a reality and it would seem they are, then it means we need the technology to deal with and be ready for it. Nothing else. Which is what he basically said. A major disruption in communications would be a disaster, but not like the doom and gloom predictions about 2012.
I believe this is what the studies at the HAARP facility up here is about and you know the wild eyed theories going around about that.

You didn't listen to/watch the vid did you? Kind of hard to comment on the OP.......
Dr. K was talking about grid outage also. This in itself is not a new idea -- the probability of a CME/magnetic pulse killing power/communications/nuclear safeguards, etc. No, it isn't thought to be a killing force in itself, and it wasn't suggested so in the OP's video. It's the ramifications of sudden and unprecedented outages that could be a global distruptive event.
Yes, there are people around the world that don't have power and probably won't notice this event, IF it happens. Power goes down, people die, systems are SNAFUed, and possibly even FUBARed. It could reflect a potential and real change with peripheral repercussions. Of course, that part is my opinion.
