Last month's solar flare created a mysterious pulse on Earth that seemed to 'answer' sun's blast

I suspect that a lot of people will die of starvation and thirst if a big solar flare hits earth in the near future.

So much food production, processing and delivery depends on electronics that a huge solar flare that fries electronics could only be seriously bad news.

I really do not think we are prepared enough, mentally, emotionally, and socially, to handle such an issue.

It would mean a change to civilization's evolution and facebook's IPO.

We'll make it through it but there will be consequences and a population reduction. The weakening of our magnetic field and atmosphere changes is what may cause what would be a normal solar cycle to be bad. This is the fourth solar cycle and it could historically be a problem. Seems like every fourth one is more problematic.

It shouldn't be that bad but people go a little nuts when things they are used to disappear sometimes.

ATS would go extinct for a while. I'm sure that it is not a priority site to get turned back on.

Just a thought, maybe it wasn't a mistake to set EVERYTHING we have to rely on now a days on electronics, Maybe just MAYBE we have bee set up since the start to fail once this one event happens again?

Think about it, all it takes is one, and we are stuck fending for ourselves for 4 months, ad that's long enough for any civilization to collapse.

Imagine.


I don't think we have been 'set up'. Electronics is a natural technological progression. Our modern society is one based upon convenience and that's why things are the way they are.

A major series of solar flares would do so much damage it could be years not months without power and comms. A Mad-Max scenario.

And yes, we would be eating each other in a month. The movie 'The Road' would be a good depiction of the situation I think.

In fact, HAARP is designed to shoot into space. I hear HAARP is the biggest (NAVY funded) railgun on Earth. Officially it shoots radiation to the atmosphere to "study the reactions" (Wikipedia).

I fear that you are correct.

Scientists have stated that a major solar storm is coming. We know that the last time it happened it fried everything electrical switched on.

Why is nothing being done?


the Electric Infrastructure Security Council, heard that the Sun will reach a critical stage of its cycle in 2013.

They fear a huge solar flare is due to erupt in 2013 — causing blackouts and global chaos.

The once-in-a-century disaster could see power grids crash, communication systems collapse, planes grounded, food supplies hit and the internet shut down.

Everything from home freezers to car sat navs would be affected.

The disaster could mirror the Great Solar Flare of 1859.

That wreaked horrendous damage across Europe and America — burning out telegraph wires across both continents.

The Sun

Interresting theory.
Unfortunately I tend to disagree. I feel that those flares are artificially made. Hurricanes were artificially stirred (Project Stormfury, Wikipedia) and still are.

Solar flares are a natural occurence. Why would they need to be artificially made?

You don't have the slightest idea what you are talking about do you ?

You say it shoots into space and quote from a Wikipedia article saying it "shoots into the atmosphere".

You say you "hear" it is the "biggest railgun on earth" ? Where did you hear that, in the movie "Spy Kids 3D" ?

After all I know all Haarp does is using microwaves to heat small areas of the ionosphere. And even that is only a small fraction of what it does, it's basically a huge collection of measuring equipment. It's neither a rail-gun nor does it shoot anything whatsoever into space.

Yesterday, and I live in Northern Ireland by the way just to set you straight from the off, the moon was out in the afternoon, like at the same time as the sun was still up!

THE MOON WAS IN THE SAME SKY THAT WAS IN MY VIEW AT THE SAME TIME AS THE SUN!


WORRYING TIMES PEOPLE!

Heaven forbid or it it the elite that the scientists should know anything.
We are surrounded by atmospheric atoms with protons that will become
neutrons when hit by electrons. There wound be a neutrino increase if
they had the monitors. Is there X-Ray and UV generation in the air that
we breath as well they never do tell. Paid to give us questions.

Cannibals? Zombies?

Could be much more going on than we will understand before its too late.

Blame those idiots who say the 'laws' (and i use that term loosely) of science can never be broken. We already know who they are.

The Sun


Actually the plan was completed last year. In the US its Operation Solar Shield and the system has been share with as many countries as would participate. In the event of a large CME the sat grid get put into sleep mode and the electric grid gets powered down and switched off the transformers. The arial wire grid is then switched onto grounding rods. That pulls the extra charge straight into the ground. But you have to understand if the charge is large enough it will still collect at and take out the transformers. Miles of wire wrapped inside gives the charge a place to go and no way out. and then the magic smoke is released. should work on pretty large CMEs but we havent had a chance for live testing. stay tuned.

To me it suggests a symbiotic relationship between two living systems. I've come to believe that stars and planets are in fact, living beings. The Sun picks up energy and information from the universe and transforms/interprets it in a way the Earth can use.

The inhabitants pick it up from direct energy/info transfers as well as through the foods we consume. Of course I have no "proof" but my intuition has gone into insane overdrive. I am so excited about the future, I'm giddy.

More people monitoring the the sun's activities equals more people expecting to see a reading on a chart.

This equates to a above average reading whereas in the past it would have been more 'true'.
Human global consciousness has a greater effect than I think we realise. You can see a similar correlation in random number generators during times of global events.
