Greetings Earthlings, Assorted Visitors and member Phage:
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
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
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
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 it.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Following is additional information that was shared about a week ago, making an interesting introduction to recent events. I think it ties in quite
nicely with your up-to-date information on this timely subject. As you alluded to, we are not out of the woods by any means, mon frere
This updated version of a previous post is intended to provide additional eye candy to attempt to draw your attention to the relevant information
contained herein. This is a test, people. Please open your workbooks and sign in and thank you for your undivided attention. Seatbacks in the upright
position, buckle your seatbelts...onward through the fog!
"OOPS...we have a problem, Houston."
Without warning, the relatively calm solar atmosphere of our seemingly benevolent Sun can be torn asunder by sudden outbursts of a scale unknown on
Earth. Catastrophic events of incredible energy...stretching up to halfway across the visible solar surface, suddenly and unpredictably open up and
expel their contents, defying the Sun's enormous gravity.
This is a coronal mass ejection (CME), a massive burst of solar wind, other light isotope plasma, and magnetic fields rising above the solar corona or
being released into space.
Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares, but a causal relationship has not been
established. Most ejections originate from active regions on Sun's surface, such as groupings of sunspots associated with frequent flares. CMEs occur
during both the solar maxima and the solar minima of sun activity, albeit with decreased frequency during the minima.
Coronal mass ejections release huge quantities of matter and electromagnetic radiation into space above the sun's surface, either near the corona or
farther into the planet system or beyond (interplanetary CME - remember this term and look for it in the MSM). The ejected material is a plasma
consisting primarily of electrons and protons, but may contain small quantities of heavier elements such as helium, oxygen, and even iron. It is
associated with enormous changes and disturbances in the coronal magnetic field. Coronal mass ejections are usually observed with a white-light
Recent scientific research has shown that the phenomenon of magnetic reconnection is responsible for CME and solar flares. Magnetic reconnection is
the name given to the rearrangement of magnetic field lines when two oppositely directed magnetic fields are brought together. This rearrangement is
accompanied with a sudden release of energy stored in the original oppositely directed fields.
On the sun, magnetic reconnection may happen on solar arcades—a series of closely occurring loops of magnetic lines of force. These lines of force
quickly reconnect into a low arcade of loops, leaving a helix of magnetic field unconnected to the rest of the arcade. The sudden release of energy in
this reconnection causes the solar flare. The unconnected magnetic helical field and the material that it contains may violently expand outwards
forming a CME.
This also explains why CMEs and solar flares typically erupt from what are known as the active regions on the sun where magnetic fields are much
stronger on average.
IMPACT ON PLANET EARTH
When the ejection is directed towards the Earth and reaches it as an interplanetary CME (ICME), the shock wave of the traveling mass of Solar
Energetic Particles causes a geomagnetic storm that may disrupt the Earth's magnetosphere, compressing it on the day side and extending the night-side
magnetic tail. When the magnetosphere reconnects on the nightside, it releases power on the order of terawatt scale, which is directed back toward the
Earth's upper atmosphere. THIS CANNOT BODE WELL FOR THE LIVING CREATURES ON EARTH...ya think?.
This process can cause particularly strong auroras in large regions around Earth's magnetic poles. These are also known as the Northern Lights (aurora
borealis) in the northern hemisphere, and the Southern Lights (aurora australis) in the southern hemisphere. Coronal mass ejections, along with solar
flares of other origin, can disrupt radio transmissions and cause damage to satellites and electrical transmission line facilities, resulting in
potentially massive and long-lasting power outages.
Humans in space or at high altitudes, for example, in airplanes, risk exposure to intense radiation. Short-term damage might include skin irritation.
Long-term consequences might include an increased risk of developing skin cancer.
This has happened recently, albeit on a smaller scale.
On 1 August 2010, during solar cycle 24, scientists at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) observed a series of four large CMEs
emanating from the Earth-facing hemisphere. The initial CME was generated by an eruption on August 1 associated with sunspot 1092, a sunspot which was
large enough to be seen without the aid of a solar telescope. The event produced significant aurorae on August 4.
I also find the following to be of significant interest and I share with all. I think Clif is on to something here. Into the rabbit hole we merrily
skip, eyes wide open, humming a tune..."Ticket to Ride?...
I hope some of you are still in the saddle, because it just gets better...check this out:
Here at Half Past Human, we forecast the future.
We are not alone in forecasting the future, all humans do it to some degree. Just a quick search of the internet will provide dozens of forms of
future forecasting. Some use astrology, some use other methods.
We employ a technique based on radical linguistics to reduce extracts from readings of dynamic postings on the internet into an archetypical database.
With this database of archtypical language, we calculate the rate of change of the language. The forecasts of the future are derived from these
calculations. Our calculations are based on a system of associations between words and numeric values for emotional responses from those words. These
'emotional impact indicators' are also of our own devising. They are attached to a data base of over 300/three hundred thousand words. This data base
of linked words/phrases and emotions is our lexicon from which the future forecasting is derived."
Also, to further your journey down this particular rabbit hole (this is, IMHO, a false flag to draw attention to the real possibility of an "event" in
mid to late October which involves Elinin and a recently-found new guest to the table...2005 YU55...which arrives just in time for the "11-11-11"
prophecies (the actual date is 8/11/2011).
The rock, 2005YU55 has been documented at about 400 meters/1312 feet in size and inbound at about 15.5 kps/34 672 mph/50 853/sec.
Compare this to Elinin: NO SIZE, and inbound at 23.7 kps/53 015 mph. To make it something to actually relate to (can you actually conceptualize 53 000
mph?), it is 25 918 yards per second...about 260 football fields laid end-to-end PER SECOND.
Now, here is where it gets interesting. It has not exactly been frontpage news in the drive-by media (thanks Rush) that 2005 YU55 will come inside the
orbit of the moon. The moon being about 384 403 km/238 857 miles distance from Earth, 2005 YU55 will whiz between the Earth and the Moon at a distance
of 315 000 km/201/314 miles.
Question? Do these figures indicate that 2005 YU55 will pass by the Moon at about 69 403 km/371 miles distance on 8/11/2011? That's only 12 780 605
488 inches. Seems close to me. Just saying...
How about the fact that there is here-to-fore NO PUBLISHED evidence of the size of Elinin, but it is described as a comet. And we have no telescopes
cabable of accomplishing this? Or, TPTB have something else in mind for the sheeple.
"A comet is an icy small Solar System body that, when close enough to the Sun, displays a visible coma (a thin, fuzzy, temporary atmosphere) and
sometimes also a tail. These phenomena are both due to the effects of solar radiation and the solar wind upon the nucleus of the comet. Comet nuclei
are themselves loose collections of ice, dust, and small rocky particles, ranging from a few hundred meters to tens of kilometers across. In the case
of Temple1 (foto below), it happens to be 4.6 MILES by 3 MILES, and weighing in at 70-110 BILLION TONS.
Comets have been observed since ancient times and have historically been considered bad omens.
Time is getting short.
In Peace & Light
