Good subject OP, Michio Kaku is only talking about a global hurricane Sandy situation really, and I in no way mean to diminish what he says. An X
flare or bigger hitting earth is inevitable. Just like Sandy we are talking about a natural event. All humanity can do is be ready for it.
Unfortunately, events like Sandy show us that governments are not only not ready for it they simply don't place a priority on human need over the
greed of the elites controlling government. That is the reality. We have just seen it. Scientists like Kaku know we already have the technology to
defend against just such events. We simply do not put money into prevention. Governments might sell us insurance, but not prevention. A sad but true
fact as we have seen.
If what happened just over a century ago happened again today then power grids are likely to go down somewhere. If several flares hit over a period of
weeks, likely given back drop of a sun in an agitated phase, then it just might be that many of the old nuclear stations will go critical. More than
one going critical in the same state or country is likely to be far more than any governing body is willing or able to handle, particularly given
there will be a lot of other effects going on, like rioting for example when the food is no longer delivered to supermarket shelves after three or
It isn't even a case of government being to blame. It is the capitalist system itself. The profit system that is to blame. It is the reason we do not
have real democracy anywhere in the world. There is a simple answer. Wake up, realize the capitalist system does not serve you at all well, cannot
protect you from natural events, or even allow science to reach its full potential, will drive us ultimately to war, and that only when something
really massive takes place that is out of our control, such as a series of X flares striking the planet, will that war stop and we all run home and
take cover. Too late at that point. We are back in the stone age.
The answer is to work rapidly toward a socialist world system, one in which workers from all countries realize their equality together and allow
science and scientists like Kaku to begin to not only protect us from natural disasters but to enable all of us to share a far better world than the
one we currently have.
