Space storms could knock out National Grid and Sat Navs
[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]

The solar flares and sunspots throw massive clouds of electrically charged gas at the Earth which cause power surges and throw compasses into disarray.

The last really big solar "super flare" – in 1859 – knocked out telegrams and ship's compasses and covered two-thirds of the Earth in a blood red aurora.

"A major objective is to shed light on the impact of both everyday and extreme space weather on our technologies and therefore to be better aware of the risk.”

The model developed by the British team, the most sophisticated yet developed, takes magnetic field measurements from all over the UK and sees how they affect the National Grid.

The US National Academies estimate the cost of a future severe space storm hitting the USA to be up to £1.5 trillion in the first year.

They believe that full recovery could then take 4-10 years.

Re: Space storms could knock out National Grid and Sat Navs
Let me tell you what the real cost is of a super solar flare

1 WW3

2 extinction of more than half of the planet!

A super solar flare is not something that can be managed just by raising some trilljon dollar fund or something like that.

You have to imagine the world without elektricity without sattelites without transport without anything everything shuts down and man is send almost to the prehistoric ages and how much of you people can even start a bush fire without matches???

Society will collapse the moment the sky turns red because everybody would run to the stores to buy what they can this will instantly clog the cities with traffic riots will ensue a few hours after the first signs namely the auroras all over the world.

The economy will instantly crash and let's be honest it looks like they have prepared it for a hard crash course with those triljons of debt....

So after the auroras most cities in the world will be in turmoil imagine no television no grid i don't even know if cars will still be operational imagine that even vehicles shut down due to the electric components in them imagine no water no grid no transportation no media empty stores how the fuck on earth is such a situation restorable even if legions of soldiers came out of those dumbs(deep underground military bases) they couldn't possibly overwelm the masses in a apocalyptic world without any infrastructure left to work.

And i'm not even talking about the natural disasters that would follow like massive earthquakes tsunamies hurricanes the suden increase in temperature of the ionosphere and GOD knows what else might happen during a super solar flare anyway i just hope it happens cuz we all deserve it so much.

Zephaniah 1:2
“I shall snatch away all from the face of the earth,” declares Yahuweh–

Zephaniah 1:3
“I snatch away man and beast, I snatch away the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, and the stumbling-blocks, with the wrong, when I shall cut off man from the face of the earth,” declares Yahuweh.

Zephaniah 1:4
“And I shall stretch out My hand against Yehuḏah, and against all the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, and cut off every trace of Baal (LORD)from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the priests,

Zephaniah 1:5
and those bowing down to the host of the heavens (stars, suns, and moons) on the house-tops, and those bowing themselves, swearing by Yahuweh and swearing by Malkam/molek;

Zephaniah 1:6
AND those who turn away from following Yahuweh, and who have not sought Yahuweh or inquired of Him.”

Zephaniah 1:7
Hush! in the presence of the Master Yahuweh. For the day of Yahuweh is near, for Yahuweh has prepared a slaughter, He has set apart His invited ones.

Re: Space storms could knock out National Grid and Sat Navs
the president of Iran knows exactly what is about to take place. Many of you laugh at him and call him names but he has untold knowledge.
He is evacuating Tehran out of 5 million people. My Iranian friends tell me that he has set up an emergency network that is working very very fast towards agriculture without the use of new technology. What does he know that we don't.
They are doing the same as China. Trying to be self-sufficient with simple tool and without the use of machinary. That says a lot

Or perhaps some countries are concerned about the prospect of nuclear war.

Seems odd timing given the latest nuke talks, if countries really were preparing for this onslaught by the sun, then would it not have happened over this last 10 years plus quiet cycle?

Seems foolish to start getting ready now given that we are apparently headed into such a volatile phase of space weather.

It just doesn't make logical sense to me.
