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?

Hmm 11 cities in the entire world warrants a thread title beginning with "Worldwide"???

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.






fake innocence. why reason with a faker. no further comment with you.

Hope you are wrong. I will be the first to know. I am sitting in an electrical substation with a transformer oil filtering rig, filtering a large transformer. So far I have not heard any unusual sounds coming from the transformer, any type of surges I can hear the sound change. Just north of Columbus Ohio. Will let you know if anything changes.

I don't know, why am I trying to reason with a faker?

Why can't you explain how all these blackouts were caused by a geomagnetic storm that hadn't even reached earth yet?

^ agree. i dont believe the notion that a G4 can't cause any power outages yet that a G5 readily can.

i mean, where is threshold in between, anyways let alone the logic. its an aritrary, progressive point from geomag activity to geomag storm.

mentions 'geosynchronous satellites could therefore be directly exposed to solar wind plasma and magnetic fields'

wonder what that means and if solar flare (or geomag activity/storm?) can affect geosynchronous satellites. (the geosynchronous part is screamin yes!)

Make yourself comfy, you're there for your whole shift.
Activity has gone way down.

BTW, I just wanted to mention that I live in Ottawa Canada, one of the alleged regions with power outages. Needless to say, my power is on and nothing out of the ordinary has occurred.

Why not do some research (and I don't mean on youtube)?
You might be able to answer some of your questions and learn a few other things in the process.

good point. to clarify, there have been very recent outages in both Ottawa, IL & Ottawa, CA

see respective links if needed, with date & # customers affected:

Incorrect.

Electrical and electronic devices are not affected by CMEs or geomagnetic storms. Only long conductors (powerlines, pipelines) are affected by the fluctuations of the magnetic field. Unless the devices are plugged in and turned on at the time, the resulting power surges cannot affect them.

,Certain things happen for a certain reason,not all geomagnetic storms produce outages,or interfering with electrical grids,but the problem it's that outages from EMP start many days ago and will continue for the coming days with or without CME,the first effect for long term will be headache,if make a map oh the outages you will see them happening after a certain path!

why don't you? i mean, i'm pointing out that you recently implied G5 could produce outages but G4 cant.

and, that's your advice in response, seriously?

Please point out exactly where I implied that.

Yes, that's my advice. Seriously.

I guess ATS will wait until they garner some more page views before this gets dumped to HOAX?

Seriously, I'm asking.

You don't get it do you?

All those power outages occurred BEFORE the geomagnetic storm reached earth.

Do you understand what is being said here?

Power Outages.

Before.

Geomagnetic Storm.

power outages in Ottawa Canada?

I live here and I am typing on my computer and have been all day long.

I call this BS
