Upcoming solar flares could wreak havoc on Earth
#1
A giant fissure has opened across the sun and is spewing rapid solar winds toward our planet.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory got wind of the massive hole Friday morning.

This coronal hole is a vast region where the sun’s magnetic field tears apart, allowing solar wind to escape.

Super-charged solar winds flowing from the sun’s atmosphere are expected to reach Earth on April 23 or 24.

According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this could whip up a “moderately strong” geomagnetic storm.
These kinds of storms are behind the beautiful natural phenomenon the Northern Lights.

But a storm of this magnitude could have an effect on power grids and navigation systems across the Earth’s surface.

US President Barack Obama was forced to issue a chilling warning to the nation in preparation for devastating space storms earlier this year.

He said: “Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, health care, and transportation.
“Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents.”

Wow, this after my doomer post. Could happen, but unlikely, and there's nothing to be done about it anyway. Seems like the four horsemen are mounting up huh?

The elite can always retreat to the D.U.M.B.S.

Do you have a numbered bunk in the D.U.M.B.S.?  If not, you are "not worthy to survive."

Well, I'm dumb enough for sure.

So all your electronics and electricity sources are EMP proof?   I'm impressed!

I'm more thinking we're just tired of hearing these same failed non stop doom predictions
