Government Agency Warning: Space Storms Could Cause Mass BLACKOUTS

The Met Office has told United Kingdom ministers that space storms could cause massive blackouts and destroy computers. According to the government agency’s study, a space storm could bring down the internet and all communications.

According to The Sunday Times, a new report is claiming that huge solar flares can generate such intense magnetic fields over Earth which in a flash could burn out delicate electronics and even set them on fire. The report, co-authored with scientists from the British Antarctic Survey, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and Cambridge University said the UK should construct an early warning system because of their risk.

Great Britain is at a major risk of being crippled by huge electrical disturbances caused by solar storms in space unless a satellite network is built that can detect them coming. (And if you guessed the taxpayers are going to foot the bill, you’d be correct.)

“We find that for a one-in-100-year event, with no space weather forecasting capability, the gross domestic product loss to the United Kingdom could be as high as £15.9bn,” The Met Office study said. “With existing satellites nearing the end of their life, forecasting capability will decrease in coming years, so if no further investment takes place, critical infrastructure will become more vulnerable to space weather.”

It’s not like solar storms of this magnitude have never occurred either.  According to Fox News, In 1859 a giant solar flare doubled the sun’s brightness for a few minutes, followed by a surge in magnetism that caused powerful electrical currents in telegraph wires across Europe igniting widespread fires. Another such solar event in 1989 struck Quebec in Canada and burned out power cables led to a blackout. Researchers fear another such event would burn out high-voltage cables and substations across the United Kingdom.

However, should the government be able to detect the solar storms that could cause massive damage, they say that they would be able to notify citizens that they will need to turn off their devices to avoid their destruction. The UK and other countries already have satellites that are capable of doing the job of warning, such as the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, launched in 1995 and the 2006 twin Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (Stereo) probes. But because these satellites have spent years in space exposed to fierce radiation, they will soon become ineffective and new ones will be needed.

In the meantime, there are a few things you could expect during a grid failure and a few things you can do to prepare yourself for the possibility.

6 Totally Insane Things That Will Happen If Our Power Grid Goes Down

If you are looking for a simple guide for beginners or for more advanced preppers to help you prepare for the possibility of a power grid failure, try reading The Prepper’s Blueprint. Written by Tess Pennington, the book expertly lays out effective ways everyone can begin to prepare for any apocalyptic situation.

“If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not.” -The Prepper’s Blueprint

    Space storms? Solar flares? Or an EMP from North Gookland.

    • Infidel, Or our own CIA ? how would we ever know, or maybe China, does it even matter ?

      We are in a solar flare minimum event. This all very unlikely until a few years down the road and we enter more solar activity. But the fact is nobody really knows. It is all just a guess at best and more fear porn !

  2. Deplorable Neal Jensen says:

    Government warnings just in time for plausible deniability for when the lights wink out for the last time permanently…The Deep State and One World government people NEVER REST and never stop plotting…If a government agency tell you WHY something happened, you better go find out for yourself what the truth is from other sources.

  3. Beaumont says:

    “the gross domestic product loss to the United Kingdom could be as high as £15.9bn”

    Does anyone know which things are traditionally-British, and does Britain literally make them, anymore.

    Trying to figure out what is left, besides migrant housing and diverse police without guns.

    “…so if no further investment takes place, critical infrastructure will become more vulnerable to space weather.”

    So, they want subsidies, just for the act of looking.

    Why are we still so incapable of hardening infrastructure, 160ish years past the Carrington Event.

  5. Duh jones says:

    Oh shew, only the UK. I was worried for a minute.

  6. reper sleepr says:

    What happened to the “solar minimum” and the possible return of “little ice age” due to the lack of sunspots. So which is it? Is the sun going “Sleepy bye”? or not. Somebody is trying to bullshit the bullshitters.

  7. John says:

    Just Saying–it sures sounds similar to the following three things:
    a. 11-23-2018–Black Friday.
    b. 11-26-2018–’66’ Weeks from the Great American Eclipse of 8-21-17–(Rev. ‘6:6’).
    c. The 2019 Rothshild/Vatican/Black Nobility “Economist Magazine” cover.
    (All Black).

  8. Archivist says:

    I get my alerts from Australia. Great Britain could as well, without spending anything.

    Go to this website and subscribe to a mailing list. Then you will get email alerts.

    I’ve been getting flare alerts for a number of years.

  9. Remember the Pelican brief movie?

    Julia Roberts played a law student who wrote a speculative brief that was so spot on that the evil people sought to have her killed but Denzel’s character came to her rescue.

    Well, the Lone Ranger brief (if we can call it that, lol) is that at some point, our country, and possibly most countries in the world, will have their power turned off under the guise of a black swan (unforeseen) event which will really be a either terrorism, o,r terrorism will be unleased to complement a black swan.

    Some of my friends think I’m crazy, some others, not.

    And I literally pray that I am wrong!

    BUT, just HOW does one prepare for this, if one could?

    Buy and HIDE solar-powered lights as well as chargers of various capacities and sizes. (I wish I could afford everything I have researched but I am comforted that a bare minimum is better than nothing)

    Buy various Light Emitting Diode [L.E.D.] flashlights of various sizes and plenty of batteries to back them up and hide them as well.

    (Be SURE to buy Lithium AA and Lithium AAA batteries, they are slightly more money and they give you two important advantages: they will not leak and ruin your device like alkaline batteries do, and, they will work in very cold weather whereas alkalines will not. While you are at it, also buy a Headlamp as it frees both your arms to get stuff done during a power outage so you don’t have to hold a flashlight with your other hand!)

    Mr. Obama gave the Russians and Chinese access to our grid infrastructure (research GRID EX II).

    A nation without power (and without light) allows for invaders, foreign troops from underground cities to emerge.

    It also allows the United Nations (under the Kirgali principles Obama and Kerry signed) to “patrol and take over” our country under the guise of “assisting” Americans who have been hit by a “catastrophe”.

    Bullshit!

    The President needs to sign two Executive Orders: one repudiating our participation in the Kirgali principles and another getting rid of and throwing out all U.N. “peacekeepers” biding their time here until chaos or crises become unleashed, and that includes all U.N. vehicles already extensively protographed/documented by Americans..

    We already see one crisis and chaotic situation unleashed at our border which George Soros has funded and is on record as bragged about funding.

    We see a second crisis and chaotic event with the fires in California which evidence is now mounting to show they were intentionally set, either from a space energy beam or thermite dispersed in the atmosphere the purpose of which is to reduce the population AND force residents into cities for greater “control”.

    Expect (and prepare for) more such “crises”.

    If this Government Agency Warning is accurate, we need to prepare.

    And if it is a deception to cover up a soon to be unleashed manmade series of events (our grid hacked and/or attacked), we still need to prepare.

    I am NOT saying I am right. I hope I am not. If I am, you can now get better prepared.

    If I am wrong, you now will have ample ways to get you through those occasional power outages that tend to hit.

    God bless you all.

  10. The Truth Hurts says:

    re Space Storms Could Cause Mass BLACKOUTS

    Gee… just in time for LOCKDOWN USSA

  11. Yohan Smythe says:

    1. Create a percieved crisis (one already known about is ok also)
    2. Make it about us
    3. Call for lotsa money to fix the problem, even though it will do no good.
    4. Spend the money on whatever you want (using some of it to make it look like do are doing something about the stated problem).

  12. Beaumont says:

    One way of viewing space weather, is like lots and lots of little arrows. Like a current in water, or a wind, or the levers in a pinball machine.

    Depending on where a snapshot or a film is taken, measurements will sometimes portray massive objects, just sitting there, or moving through.

    They tell you that (fill-in-the-blank) will cause (fill-in-the-blank) to happen. It’s heavily redacted and sounds like madlibs.

    But, an independent thinker can oftentimes use free, public utilities to see the (fill-in-the-blank.) There are points and winks and nudges, but you have to ignore the narrative.

    This is like the analogy of hearing two little kids, lying, and the responsible adult tries to split the difference.

  13. stevor says:

    what a JOKE.
    What this ought to say is “government WILL CREATE BLACKOUTS to disrupt society and blame it on space storms, giving an opportunity for their next move to destroy the country and the world.

  14. michael needs to stand up anyhow’s so…

  15. Maranatha says:

    Dr. Jacques Vallee decades ago warned by Project Moonbeam and Ronald Reagan certainly added fuel to the fire. Then when Dr Edwin Teller, the chief scietist behind SDI, said as much as well. That is how it unfold and who they will blame to institute one world government.

    The fear caused by non-terrestrial entities will create a common enemy. EMP by unknown causes would be but one likely way to achieve those means.

    Also see Project Blue Beam and the Vatican astronomy department and SETI.

  16. Here we go again with this shit.

  17. Valerie Davenport says:

    It sounds like the elites are trying to find a way to explain the fires started by DEW’s (directed energy weapons), so they will not be held liable, and the sheeple will be non-the-wiser because they follow only MSM and believe everything they are “told”…
