Did you know that an extreme solar storm hit Earth in the late 1890’s? Did you know that this storm sent two foot sparks shooting out of the telegraph lines that existed at the time? Did you know that this type of solar storm is powerful enough to fry all electric circuits, fry all transformers, and turn off all electric power grids WORLDWIDE? Did you know that this super solar storm (Carrington Effect) has been extensively studied, researched and talked about in scientific circles? They are even predicting another one will hit Earth soon, with potentially catastrophic results.
"The National Academy of Sciences and several other federal government studies suggest that this extreme solar activity and emissions may result in complete blackouts for years in some areas of the nation. Moreover, there may also be disruption of power supply for years, or even decades, as geomagnetic currents attracted by the storm could debilitate the transformers.” http://youtu.be/GjgDhbkY8vs?t=4m
I think you will agree with me, that having the power go out all across the globe for a year or longer is a huge problem. That will cause a lot of suffering, loss of life and maybe even collapse entire civilizations. But there is something that is even worse than that… What could be worse than mass starvation, no power, no gasoline pumps and no water pumps working?
What I am pointing at this the Fukushima Effect. When the power went out there, we all know what happened within 8 hours. The plants melted down, and blew up, along with their spent fuel pools, because they lost their power source FOR 8 HOURS. What will happen to all of these nuclear power plants and their spent fuel pools, if we lose power for MONTHS or YEARS GLOBALLY, as these scientists are predicting?
How do we keep all 400-1000 nuclear power plants, research facilities, university plants, military plants and secret facilities around the world and their associated spent fuel pools globally from melting down and blowing up, after the power has been out for potentially weeks and/or months? The backup power systems of batteries and generators only last for a couple of days at most.
The ‘experts’ all said that the tsunami that hit Fukushima ‘could never happen’. The experts said a multiple melt down and melt through of nuclear power plants could not happen. The experts in the nuclear industry are saying that a Carrington Effect cannot happen, so they are not getting ready for it. This same scenario happened at Fukushima. They knew 20 years ago that a tsunami was coming and they had plenty of time to get ready for it. It would have cost 100 million to get ready and modify the plant. They did nothing. The nuclear industry so far, is doing NOTHING to get ready for this Carrington Effect.
The next climax of solar storms is going to happen in late 2012, according to this reporter. Here is a really neat video and close ups of the sun doing what it does…http://youtu.be/l2RMnmjQynM
NASA has revised their prediction for solar maximum to now occur around mid-May of 2013.
We better get ready, the perfect super solar storm is coming soon, just like the tsunamis that have hit various areas of the world came. Tsunamis are part of what happens every couple of hundred years. They are ‘natural’. Super solar storms are ‘natural’ too, and they happen every 50 to 100 years.
We either have all nuclear plants turned off and all nuclear material cooled down to the point where there is no power needed to keep the nuke material cool, or we are all toast.
Can you imagine 400 plus nuclear power plants and their spent fuel pools all melting down, melting through and/or blowing up as reactor #3 at Fukushima did?
Fukushima Reactor 3 released 500 pounds of plutonium into the air, and possibly 20 tons of uranium when it exploded. No, it was NOT a hydrogen explosion, as explained by Gunderson and other experts.…
Imagine 10,000 times that much going into the air, globally, and then NEVER STOPPING, due to radiation releases from uncontrolled melting blobs of corium fissioning into the air forever.
What is the NRC doing to protect the public? What is the EPA doing to protect the public? What is the IAEA doing to protect the public? What are any of the other nuclear marketing and sales organizations doing to protect the public from this? NOTHING. As a matter of fact, they are covering up what is happening and protecting the people who are responsible for the potential life extinction event above.
What is your politician doing to protect your family from this? Ask them. Send them a link to this article. Send them a copy of this article.
What is your local emergency planning and disaster preparation official doing to prevent this? Ask them. Send them a link or the complete article.
These people all have children and families. They are not safe either, no matter what bomb shelter that they think will save them.
Some government officials think this will not affect them, as they have a nuclear bomb shelter ready for them. There is only one small problem.
Very little has changed since Chernobyl blew up and radiated everyone, except that many more nuclear accidents, meltdowns, melt throughs and ‘accidental’ radiation releases happened, plus way more radioactive substances are now in the air, on the ground and in the ocean as well as inside all of us.
Let’s focus on just 93 out of the 1,000 total, shall we? There are 93 different long lived radioactive elements that hang around and pollute both the environment and us for at least 17,000 years and up to BILLIONS of years in total decay life. Want to see the list of all 93?
Fissioning reactor corium blobs at Fukushima are STILL releasing this long lived radiation TODAY, with no known turn off date. The media and regulatory bodies keep saying this plant is in cold shutdown. But is it really? Fukushima; Is It REALLY In 'Cold Shutdown'? Plus; What Is The Rest Of The Story?
If you take the time to read and understand what is REALLY going on as opposed to the spin (or the complete silence) put out by mass media owning companies like GE, which also manufactures and sells nuclear power plants, then you will also understand why even survivalists will not make it through 20 years of staying underground, much less 25,000 years of staying underground, once the Carrington Effect hits Earth.
What are they going to eat down there; dirt? Where will they get radiation free water, and more uncontaminated food, when what they have runs out? You can only store so much food, and then you have to come up on the surface and grow more. Or, you could start eating your comrades, but cannibalism has its own consequences.
Bottom line, having the power turn off for a year is a bummer and a lot of people will die. But having the power off for a year and having 400 nuclear power plants and their associated spent fuel pools melt down, melt through and then blow up, just like Fukushima did recently, that is a MUCH BIGGER bummer and a terminal one for humanity, I am afraid.
This bummer is entirely preventable. We can live through a super solar storm, but only if we get ready. Do you need some encouragement and passion to be part of the solution, instead of the problem? Listen to a song, and maybe that will help.
A massive solar flare is set to strike our planet today, perhaps even by the time you read this. NASA warns that it may disrupt or destroy some communications satellites. It's also possible that some aircraft may experience operational problems.
The out-of-control TSA detained Sen. Rand Paul today, refusing to let him board an airplane because he refused to consent to the TSA's criminal "enhanced pat down" which involves the felony crime of molestation. His father, Ron Paul, denounced the "growing police state" in America: http://www.naturalnews.com/034736_TSA_Rand_Paul_police_state.html
I just walked out of a disappointing meeting with the White House: they refused to accept the Carter solar panel we came to Washington to deliver and said that they would continue their "deliberative process" to discuss putting solar panels back on the White House roof.
Well, we're done deliberating. When Pakistan is under water, Russia is on fire, and millions of people are ready for clean energy jobs, it's not time to deliberate: it's time to get to work.
Today marks the one month countdown to the 10/10/10 Global Work Party. Will you help us celebrate by signing up to register orattend an event today?
We entered this morning's meeting buoyed by the over 40,000 of you who signed our letter requesting President Obama to make the retrofit. We were equally heartened by the hundreds of work parties that have been registered since our road trip began on Tuesday. And we were humbled by reports of the amazing work being planned in places like Zimbabwe, where a group of students will be installing solar panels on the roof of a rural hospital for 10/10/10.
I'm also incredibly proud of the three students from Unity College who stood right up to the officials we met with and explained to them that if they wanted to communicate about the greening of the government they should do something in a place where people pay attention.
This week's road trip got incredible media coverage in places like Newsweek, the Washington Post, USA Today, and more. Thousands of you helped spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Hundreds of you signed up new work parties to show how you're leading this movement for climate solutions. Because in the end, that's what it is going to take: a movement.
Your efforts are building incredible momentum. In the last month, big partners like Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club, and the World Council of Churches have joined the 10:10 Campaign and350.org in planning for 10/10/10. The day will be a moment to bring our entire movement together and show our so-called leaders what real leadership looks like.
As for the Carter solar panel, it's going to stay in Washington for now, ready for President Obama to come take it home. And as for me, I'm going to head home myself for a few days of rest before hitting the road again to drum up support for 10/10/10.
Your hard work means the world to us, let's keep up the fight.
350.org is an international grassroots campaign that aims to mobilize a global climate movementunited by a common call to action. By spreading an understanding of the science and a shared vision for a fair policy, we will ensure that the world creates bold and equitable solutions to the climate crisis. 350.org is an independent and not-for-profit project. What is 350? 350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists measure carbon dioxide in "parts per million" (ppm), so 350ppm is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. To get there, we need a different kind of PPM-a "people powered movement" that is made of people like you in every corner of the planet.
"In 1997, Samsø won a government competition to become a model renewable energy community. At the time Samsø was entirely dependent on oil and coal, both of which it imported from the mainland.
An offshore wind farm comprising 10 turbines (making a total of 21 altogether including land-based windmills), was completed, funded by the islanders. The people of Samsø heat their homes with straw burned in a central heating system and they power some vehicles on biofuel which they also grow. Now 100% of its electricity comes from wind power and 75% of its heat comes from solar power and biomass energy. An Energy Academy has opened in Ballen, with a visitor education center."
The answers are all around us. It is mostly about will.. We can do anything we set our minds to, as the Samso Islanders did in 1997. It is even easier to do what they did now.
If we continue to go down the dirty rat hole of coal, nuclear and oil, we get the same thing that The Penguin got from Batman... in the movie. It is not pretty or nice, as we see from the Gulf Ecological and Humanitarian Disaster that is coming in slow motion... like a car going off a cliff, but slowly, inevitably.
The Danish haven of Samso is one of the world's first industrialised places to become energy self-sufficient - a great boost for a country about to host a summit on climate change. Tony Paterson visits the windy isle.
