Today’s Predicted Solar Storm Could Cause Blackouts

A solar storm has been predicted for today as scientists discovered a burst of cosmic radiation headed right towards the Earth.  The predicted solar winds have the power to affect satellites, knock out GPS navigation, mobile phone signals, and satellite TV such as Sky.

Geomagnetic storms are likely today, December 5, 2018, in response to the arrival of the coronal mass ejection (CME) which occurred back on November 30 according to a three-day forecast by Space Weather Live. For the most part, the Earth’s magnetic field protects human beings and other life from the barrage of radiation. However, it certainly looks as if Earth is in the line of the stream of cosmic particles, and scientists say we should see evidence of it today.

According to Express UK, a surge of particles can lead to high currents in the magnetosphere, which can lead to higher than normal electricity in power lines, resulting in electrical transformers and power station blowouts along with a loss of power. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says there is a 45 percent chance that a solar storm could hit Earth. The website Space Weather says: “NOAA forecasters say there is a 45% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms on December 5 when a coronal mass ejection (CME) is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field. CMEs are rare during solar minimum because their usual launching pads – that is, sunspots – are absent.”

“This one [CME] was produced not by a sunspot, but rather by a filament of magnetism erupting from the sun’s southern hemisphere,” the website further stated.  This CME is likely to create the aurora borealis or Northern lights if the storm strikes the northern hemisphere. Southern lights or aurora australis will occur if the storm hits the southern hemisphere. “CMEs are very good at producing auroras, so even a glancing blow could light up the Arctic Circle this Wednesday night.”

While this storm is not expected to be overly powerful, the Met Office has warned that the United Kingdom will face a monumental solar storm in the future, which could knock out Britain’s technology and cost the UK almost £16billion in damages. The weather forecaster believes the UK does not have sufficient infrastructure to prepare ourselves for such an event. The country could be plunged into a blackout because it is not prepared enough for powerful solar storms, the Met Office told ministers.

A researcher from the Met Office said: “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. 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.”

      Looter Defense Plan: The First (And ONLY!) Way To Defeat A Hungry Mob…

      You might think you could still do it.

      I’m here to tell you from experience, you most likely won’t.

      But even if you could, the cold, hard truth is that a mob that suspects you have food, water, and supplies inside your walls will stop at nothing to get inside if they’re faced with literal starvation.

      It doesn’t matter how many guns you have… how many team members you have hunkered down… how many bullets you’ve stockpiled… you will STILL be just one molotov cocktail away from being burned out of your home and forced to come face-to-face with the violent mob – and with all of your supplies burned to ashes.

      There’s literally only ONE WAY to defeat a hungry, desperate, violent mob… Get the answer in the article link.

    Is it time for yet another Rapture declaration yet? Did i miss it somehow while stranded on this planet of retarded apes shrilling on about climate change?

    • Deplorable Neal Jensen says:

      The only thing that keeps aliens from eating us is the nauseating plume of human body odor and foul aftertaste. Once they solve that problem with their lab grown “meat”, they will turn their three headed dogs of war loose on us for the harvest…. Cough cough… “Rapture”.

    Wow, this stuff cracks me up. Yellowstone is about to erupt- we’re doomed! The economy is crashing- we’re doomed! China/Russia is about to be forced to start WW III by the big bad Americans- we’re doomed! The dollar is about to be replaced as the world currency- we’re doomed!

    All this has been a steady drumbeat occurring at least once a week for the past 5 plus years. At some point, SOMETHING like this is bound to happen at which point everyone will say “Aha! We told you so!” It’s pretty lame though. Never are there any real and solid facts or data to back this stuff up. Especially with the economy, what data IS shown is often made up or just explained in a way that backs up the assertion being made at that time. Pretty sad that people continue to just lap this all up and let themselves be moved into a constant state of fear and anxiety.
