This is the mainstream media discussing the possibility that the national grid will be knocked out next year if we get direct hits from the sun.
The ms media has been ramping up info on these storms over the last 12months.
All media has been picking up on large flares warning that there could be minor issues here when flares hit. YOu would often see stories in print
media but this year i noticed when flares were due to hit it was making the hourly news stories on the tv and radio. this had not happend before.
Next year the sun is due to peak in current 11year solar storm cycle. Interesting how they have been informing the public over the last 12months or so
about solar storms. Educating the wider population. I was a little surprised by how much the msm was covering solar flares. It now seems it was merely
in preparation for this event expected next year.
( or then again maybe the msm just stirring the BS pot)
A space professor from Oxfordshire is battling 'to save Earth' from a solar storm that experts fear will wreak worldwide chaos next year.
Professor Mike Hapgood, who chairs the Space Environment Impacts Experts Group (SEIEG) and advises the Government on space weather, says solar storms,
generated by an outburst from the sun, are set to knock out national power grids and Global Positioning Systems.
He believes magnetic rays from the storm will result in widespread blackouts which will plunge homes and businesses into darkness.
Worldwide chaos. hmm
National Grid and GPS expected to go down if burst from sun hits our planet
Sun will reach peak of 11-year solar storm cycle next year, and magnetic storms could knock out most of Earth's electrical items
A big storm in 1859 knocked out early telegraph systems - but world is much more depend
