A movie about space would be cool to include this.

Yeah but I am pretty sure that we would have some type of warning of a CME and we would be able to protect most of the power infrastructure. I am pretty sure that the danger to the equipment is only while it is operating. If we could predict a CME and shutdown most of the grid then it wouldn't hurt us that much. Just an assumption though.

People have some electronics stored in such a way that NO amount of electromagnectic waves could destroy it, and inevitably, such electronics would be used to create new electronics to continue our electronic reliance.

Our electrical network is fairly simple to recreate as well.

Michio is trying to rally awareness that one of the sun's 11 year temper-tantrums could easily knock out our modern technology. Rightfully so.
He's not blatantly saying that 2012 is the end.

But he is also the same guy that extinguished the mass bird deaths freak out by driving the dampened logic (repressed by sensationalistic tv news) that we are in the information age, 11 years ago we weren't connected at the level that we are today, therefor information is instant and easily accessable.

just because CMEs are possible doesnt mean they will ever hit us directly. i mean what are the odds of that happening? 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000?

Yeah, they are called blue prints with formulas and schematics on how create technology...

The real problem is the amount of resources it would take to recreate the internet & all those computers & satellites that would get fried.. frown.gif

We discussed all of this in another thread, this is pretty much a repost btw...

Sure there are a lot of directions that a CME can shoot outwards towards, however, I don't think you are stopping to consider the size of the Earth and how many storms transpire and how often..

Given the # of Storms and the frequency, I'd dare say that estimate is way off...

Yea I get what you guys are saying.
But if it were to happen and we can't protect our electricity/etc. and electricity is down for a long while, imagine the chaos it would cause in today's society.
Everyone relying on electricity and electronics, there would be mass chaos. People robbing each other and the likes.
Look at Hurricane Katrina (I live in LA and experienced it headon). Everyone was going around causing mass amounts of chaos. Breaking into stores, scavenging food, even to the point of killing people for money and food. It was far worse then what they showed and described on TV as I was there when everything happened.

It'd be the end of OCN, that's for darn sure.

Without Facebook and Twitter the teenage population would turn into zombies and start the zombie apocalypse, end of a world without electricity does mean the end of the world!
