Monster Solar Storm Region Facing Earth for Next Two Weeks

2012 Worldwide Nuclear Meltdown

As if the number of celestial phenomena all occurring at the same time was not peculiar enough - Earth entering debris trail of comet, close pass of asteroid, planetary alignments in the solar system, we have been warned of a monster solar storm that has just begun and will be around for two weeks. Most people have never heard of the Carrington Event, a solar super-storm that occurred in 1859, knocking out telegraph operations and electrical systems across the globe. A century and a half later, it is estimated by physicist Michio Kaku (in the article below), that today a storm of that magnitude "would knock out almost all our satellites and power stations, there would be food riots around the country because refrigeration would stop, airplanes would probably crash without radar."

Against the background of all these events coming together around the same time, with the potential for serious consequences for our way of life, one is left to wonder at the air of nonchalance exhibited in the mainstream media and by the authorities themselves. Or could it simply be that they know far more than they are letting on and are attempting to make preparations through the various drills and exercises without alerting the public to the real potential danger, thereby risking the spread of panic.

NOAA Warns of Monster Solar Storm Region Facing Earth for Next Two Weeks; Fully Capable of Producing X-Class Flares

Last Thursday the sun produced an X1.9 rated solar flare that narrowly missed Earth. Although it wasn’t aimed directly at us, about 45 minutes after leaving the sun it was still powerful enough to disrupt radio communications.

Now, that same area  responsible for producing the X-class flare may pose a direct threat to Earth.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center says that the region on the sun known as AR11339 and affectionately called the “Benevolent Monster” will set its sights on Earth. It will move into a position that poses the largest risk to our planet around November 9th, 2011 and remain on a direct line of sight with earth for the following two (2) weeks as it rotates:
Scientists at the federal Space Weather Prediction Center say that area is the most active part of the sun since 2005. It has dozens of sunspots, including one that is the size of 17 Earths.

“It’s still growing. The size is what blows me away.”
Thursday’s flare wasn’t aimed at Earth. However, this active region is now slowly turning toward Earth, and scientists say it will be directly facing Earth in about five days.
That storm region will only affect Earth if it shoots off flares and they hit our planet, which doesn’t always happen with stormy areas, said prediction center space scientist Joe Kunches.
The region will be facing Earth for about two weeks as it rotates, he said.
Solar flares send out bursts of electromagnetic energy that can occasionally disrupt communications and electrical systems.

We’ll be facing the monster starting sometime this evening into tomorrow. Considering that it has just recently ejected an X-class flare towards Earth and another towards Venus, we should consider the region to be active and fully capable of affecting our planet.
While NOAA’s warnings fall short of any imminent ‘end of the world as we know it’ event, the risk over the next two weeks of a Carrington-like event are higher now than at anytime in the last decade. The 1859 Carrington Event, caused by a solar flare, reportedly knocked out telegraph operations around the world. It is believed that such an event, were it to occur today, could potentially take down the U.S. power grid for months or years and paralyze the entire globe:
Physicist Michio Kaku:
It could paralyze the economy of the planet earth. In 1859 we had a gigantic solar storm which knocked out telegraph wires back then, 150 years ago. If that had happened today it would knock out almost all our satellites, knock out power stations, there would be food riots around the country because refrigeration would stop, airplanes would probably crash without radar.

And again, this is a once in a century, once in two centuries storm…
We do have them and we have to worry about them.

We’d be thrown back 100 years.

Patrick Geryl of How to Survive 2012 contacted us recently and contributed a short video describing the potential fall out of such an event. The consequences would be devastating and would include everything from power grid failure and food shortages, to savage riots and, eventually, a meltdown of nuclear reactors across the globe.
There would be very little warning, if any, with estimates suggesting that once a solar event is detected it could take anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of days to impact earth.
