And I am no Bible thumper.

..the reason the Sun is expected to produce such an Unsually highly damaging flare is because of the Galactic Superwave .. a magnetic gravity wave that pulses every 9825 years from the center of our galaxy which is the same type of wave that started the creation effect of the Sun/Sol and our solar system... the magnetic wave will effect the entire solar system in 2012 as it reaches us at nearly the speed of light causing this and an extinction event as it has done just 12901 years ago... there are basicly 3 to 4 waves rippling within our galaxy at one time we get hit by this wave every 12901 years.. 12901+12901=25802 ...distance to galactic center 26,000 lightyears(estimated) earth perihilion 25771.5...not a mathamatical mistake..we are connected to the black hole..wave hits us causing the earth to tilt back and forth first wave shoves us one way and the next time the wave comes through shoves us back again...all this info and more is supported by my thread...Plus the wave will take 10-12 years to pass through solar system...(Sun cycle 11 years) another mathamatical mistake?...Dec 21 11:11am GMT 2012-4.6billion years Sol's birthday?...
Much of the damage can be mitigated if managers know a storm is coming. Putting satellites in 'safe mode' and disconnecting transformers can protect these assets from damaging electrical surges. Preventative action, however, requires accurate forecasting—a job that has been assigned to NOAA. ..............
............ 2010 marks the 4th year in a row that policymakers, researchers, legislators and reporters have gathered in Washington DC to share ideas about space weather. This year, forum organizers plan to sharpen the focus on critical infrastructure protection. The ultimate goal is to improve the nation’s ability to prepare, mitigate, and respond to potentially devastating space weather events.
"I believe we're on the threshold of a new era in which space weather can be as influential in our daily lives as ordinary terrestrial weather." Fisher concludes. "We take this very seriously indeed."

Oh noes we're going to lose our technology!!!!!!!!
I dunno why people would get so worried about this, it's a blessing in disguise for us to finally remove our shackles from this technological society which is dumbing us down.

I missed the part where it says "... and all of humanity will die and the Earth will be destroyed."
Oh wait, it doesn't say that... powergrids, shmowergrids.

I can tell already this is going to scare a lot of people. Now we have scientist fearmongering. Maybe they should have kept this to theirselves as even they can be wrong.
