Hm,looking at Japan now,and the warning from Experts about a possible Solar Storm between 2012 and 2013 when the Sun reaches it Maximum Activity, that could wipe out most if not all Power-Grids for Weeks if not Months or Years (there is a Thread about that somewhere on ATS),then that would pretty much suck a little bit...
No Energy for awhile might be our smallest Problem then...
Maybe OffTopic: Maybe its just me,but i get the feeling lately this Year is getting from weird,to bad,to Worse...

Einstein was obviously aware that sociopaths occupy most of the positions of power in our society.
I'm really at a loss as to what to do about it on a societal level. Sociopaths really are a cancer. They grow multipy uncontralably robbing the healthy cells and organism as a whole, of necessary nourishment. In any situation, a sociopath will lie, cheat steal, charm and manipulate their way into obtaining what they need no matter the cost to anyone around them. It makes them at least in the short term a successful parasite. The rest of us stand around and admire their success and secretly wish to emulate it.
As long as we buy into rampant materialism and look up to celebrities and other taalking head bozos we are stuck. The content of a person's character and not their house or bank account or good looks is what needs to matter.
Until then we will continue to live in a devastingly corrupt world with corrupt people making self serving decisions.
This is certainly right now bumping up against the magnitude of Chernobyl. It’s clearly passed what happened at Three Mile Island. And it’s not clear that this situation may not get worse, not better. You know, Chernobyl was one reactor. There are three in either partial meltdown or meltdown. And then the other one has a fuel pool fire. And I understand this morning that the temperatures in the other two fuel pools are also increasing. So, you know, I’ve said before that this could easily become Chernobyl on steroids.

So if this solar flare is legit, we are all guaranteed extinct? Do plants have an off switch if power goes out? or do they go into meltdown?
