It's possibly Planet IX
hey ..er just to clarify something I think you're misunderstanding.. the "X" used in "Planet X" is referring not to the roman numeral "10" but to the actual letter "X" as in "X - Y - Z " .. as in "fill in the blank" ... "Mr X" .. X marks the spot.. etc...
it may be numbered as the 9th planet since Pluto as demoted.. but I think you're thinking the X means 10 when that's not hat it's been used as in reference to it's name... it's X as in ... a hypothetical mystery.. an unknown as of yet.. etc..

Even though I have not had the pleasure to meet you as yet, I will also welcome you back. I read with heightened awareness and truly enjoyed your post and have a question that others may be interested in also.
If one chooses to believe that there may be elevated levels of barium and aluminum salts, polymer fibers, thorium, and/or silicon carbide in the atmosphere, would any latent incoming electromagnetic energy, errant protons and electrons or ultraviolet and x-ray radiation or "electronic plasma" continue to affect our Fragile Earth? Is there even any residual effect from the geomagnetic storm and subsequent continued interaction with Earth's magnetosphere?
Are we able to measure and analogize the data from the last three days and formulate a better plan for an optimal response (say, minimally for equipment protection before the next significant magnetic reconnection producing more events of interest in the near future (is that really only two weeks before planetfall)?
Will the USA follow the UK's plan for shutting down the power? Is that even feasible on a large scale here? What? No Dancing With the Stars? No cold beer? No lights? Do people even remember the blackout of 2003 in New York, the second biggest in history after the 1999 Brazil catastrophe?
The Northeast Blackout of 2003 was a massive widespread power outage that occurred throughout parts of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States and Ontario, Canada on Thursday, August 14, 2003, at approximately 4:11 p.m. EDT (UTC-04). At the time, it was the second most widespread electrical blackout in history, after the 1999 Southern Brazil blackout. The blackout affected an estimated 10 million people in Ontario and 45 million people in eight U.S. states.
New York, New York
The 1999 Southern Brazil blackout was a very large power outage (at the time the largest ever) that occurred in Brazil on March 11, 1999. The blackout involved São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Goiás, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Rio Grande do Sul, affecting an estimated 75 to 97 million people. A chain reaction was started when a lightning strike occurred at 22h 16m at an electricity substation in Bauru, São Paulo State causing most of the 440kV circuits at the substation to trip. Brazil was undergoing a severe investment crisis during 1999, which limited spending on maintenance and expansion of the power grid.
Good thing we are up-to-date with our maintenance and infrastructure here in America.
In Rio the military police placed 1,200 men in the streets to avoid looting. In São Paulo, traffic authorities announced they closed the city's tunnels to prevent assaults. More than 60,000 people were on Rio's subway when lights went out. At midnight, power began returning to some areas.
I wonder, considering the (lack of) response in previous disasters, do we even have enough National Guard and equipment to respond in a significant way to prevent total collapse of the system? Oh, that's the plan? Ya' think?
And what was learned from these "wake-up calls?" What do you think the sheeple's response would be? And you think the stores emptied fast before the last snowstorm? In this case, the stores would not be resupplied until the power is back on...weeks, or months, if ever. As a first responder, I witnessed our government at their finest moments in Katrina, Rita, Ike, etc.
You would think they would get it right once in a while, NOT!
Is this just conditioning before THE BIG ONE??
Sorry, where were we? Oh, yeah, this big event.
OK, permit me one more. Is there a Plan in place and where could one peruse said Plan. Does it include some sort of "Emergency Response Electrical Generation System" to "save" the sheeple and keep the beer cold? If there even be any beer available...TPTB are in the habit of banning all alcohol sales immediately after an event. Aha! The National Guard has generators! Send in the troops! Houston, we have another problem. But I digress.
Holy Crap! CNN just had two stories back-to-back on CME's and Apophis. The commentator closed with, "We had better pay up those insurance policies!" Dumbed-down, spoon-fed and SHOCKERED!
We are being told something significant is going to happen, and they know the message will fall between the cracks for most sheeple.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
In Peace & Light
