An EMP with certain coordinates could be the beginning of a fast pole shift?I'm just asking.If a Continuous EMP corroborate with other phenomenon like lights in the sky in different areas followed by outages could be this a EMP storm generated by pole shifting?

I am seeking clarification; Is a thread like this considered a 'HOAX'?

reiterating data, and provided data, related to the solar maximum, geomagnetic activity, ionospheric interference, and what may be causing the increase in outages since days ago:

Also, GLP is down, where we have been discussing this. The Magnetoshpere and earth's magnetic field has been bombarded by the sun all day, incuding a CME around midday.

possibly, u never know everybody has there own belief system...I voiced my opinion on it I just think that it isn't the cause for mass power outages its call no money to fix that which is broken. its all an opinion.

No No No, it's a Theory......... that way if it's wrong you shouldn't have to apologize!

LOL sorry, couldn't resist!

My mum once commented that she noted that freaky weather or natural disasters often were related to space launches. To quote one of Phage`s reference re holes in the ionosphere:

Science 31 January 1975:
Vol. 187 no. 4174 pp. 343-346
DOI: 10.1126/science.187.4174.343

Abstract

A dramatic ionospheric phenomenon, unique in magnitude and in spatial and temporal extent, occurred along the Atlantic Coast of North America after the launch of the NASA Skylab Workshop on 14 May 1973.

The effect was a large and rapid decrease in the total number of ionospheric electrons within a distance of 1000 kilometers of the burning engines of the Saturn V launch vehicle. The observations are interpreted in terms of exceptionally enhanced chemical loss rates due to the molecular hydrogen and water vapor contained in the Saturn second-stage exhaust plume.

Perhaps the power problems are related to the UARS re-entering the ionosphere?


hey, thats interesting, I think we are far from completely understanding how earth works, or they are guinea-pigning us for some time...

I am sorry, but you really need to research what EMPs from solar flares do and how to counter them. A simple type of insulator placed in conjunction with each transformer will negate any and all power loss. They are cheap and cost effective. Physicist Michio Kaku has a video's explaining it all. If you know the logic in what a solar flare does and how it acts as an EMP to create power surges. Combating it is relatively simple. I am sorry, but the comet Elenin has nothing to do with it. Also, I live near two amateur astronomers, and so far, neither of them have red flagged the comet. I really wish we could embrace the things that happen and learn and gain from them, instead of putting doomsday on everything. Their isn't a country in the world that doesn't know what a solar flare can do to a power grid. They have known for years. The solution is cheap and cost effective ... Epic fail on those that did nothing. They can sit and suck on it in the dark while I enjoy the light ...

hmm maybe tell that to US and UK, i mean im not the one cutting power in prep for solar storm:


theintelhub.com...

U.S And United Kingdom To Cut Power In Preparation of Massive Solar Storm

"In a stunning announcement, The United States and United Kingdom are likely set to began “controlled” power cuts in preparation of a giant solar storm."

Shutting down power grids when a severe geomagnetic storm was approaching would be a good idea to avoid damage.

The aim of the joint US-UK collaboration is to improve solar weather forecasting to a point where it is possible to warn power companies of an imminent storm. There is a feeling that if a "category 5" solar storm – the biggest of the five categories – were to be predicted, then taking the grid off-line before it is due to hit Earth and letting the storm pass would be better than trying to keep things running, he said.

www.independent.co.uk...

Fortunately we haven't faced the prospect of a G5 storm. No one has cut their power because of this moderate storm.

Really, we in our household have been having problems with our kitchen light turning on. Sometimes it comes on, and some times it just doesn't. I'm not trying to be funny. It is a recent thing, as of the last week and a half or so. We're not sure what to do about it since it isn't the bulb. It could be something to do with the socket, but, anyway. Maybe it is related. I just want the light to come on every time I flip the switch. My roommate (a "normie" by ATS standards) told me she was going to call the power company because the lights have been flickering. I hadn't noticed at all. And, I would have guessed it was some squirrel messing with the wires outside since we live near a park.

Anywho, just sharing the news.

Great source there.

It's from June too, I hope you didn't think it was current??

Have you seen this yet? (I admit I haven't read the last few pages)



The geomagnetic storm started ~9 hours ago.

When did your thread start again?

As we can see, this thread was started 20 hours ago...



How did a CME cut power WORLDWIDE!!!!!!! when it hadn't even reached earth yet?

my point exactly, thats why i've reference it twice.

once in response to the geomagnetic vs solar semantics,

and 2nd in reponse to being told insulation will negate any and all solar-related power loss

I guess I'm still missing your point in posting it either time. It seemed that you were saying that the power outages were intentional.

Since you didn't really say anything about either time, maybe you could clarify your intent.

you said around page 11 that solar flares don't cause power outages, geomagnetic storms do.

yet, the article you are agreeing with refers to solar storms

,So I may be right,something it's happening,and they get us on a dead road.Not a (HOAX)pole shift,maybe something out of control!who it's coming to town tomorrow?

Thank you for clarifying.

Yes. I said solar flares do not cause power outages. They do not.

Maybe you should have read the article:

One topic of discussion is how to protect national electricity grids from the immense power surges caused by the geomagnetic storms which happen when highly energetic solar particles collide with the Earth's magnetic field.

Spare me the fake innocence.

I saw the original thread title.

Why do you think think the first couple of responses were discussing "worldwide: in the title?


Originally posted by aaron2209

I believe that it does. Although the "world wide" may be far fetched, this blackout
is not in a localized area, therefore the term "world wide" is applicable in this situation.

However, a better thread title may have been "Major blackouts happening in localized
areas around the world".

Either way, the two get the point across. It's just the fact that the original thread title
is much more sensational.

With all due respect, I'm getting tired of these panic threads.

The world is not ending and there is no Nibiru. Ok? Good.

Time to move on with life and end this nonsense.
