[Epoch Times][Armageddon Online] Severe Solar Flares Predicted to Reach Earth

post #1 of 100
Thread Starter 
Better break out the sunscreen.

Sleeping for eleven years, our hot giant star the Sun has begun to awaken and possibly exhale a massive solar storm in its yawn toward planet Earth.

http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/content/view/37183/

The sun is currently near minimum on its 11-year activity cycle, the report explains, but is expected to produce solar storms that will increase in intensity and frequency as it approaches peak activity levels in 2012.

The NASA report warns that if the sun's activity over the next few years flares to the level of the May 1921 "superstorm" or the so-called Carrington event of 1859, a "perfect storm" that Space.com called "the most powerful onslaught of solar energy in recorded history," the U.S. may not be equipped to handle the damages.

Pretty sure this has already been posted, but it reminded me of the other one: It said we would get the flare today/yesterday (Thursday) and that must be why my AC was unresponsive for a few minutes! I was trying to figure out what was wrong and couldn't figure it out at all.

If the Big flare they we're predicting hit today i was around 11:30-12 oclock the afternoon EST. I was at work and all the registers at the store i work at all went on the fritz at the same time. screen went black and loud beeping noise. lasted for a second or two than it was if nothing had happened.


of course it could just be a massive coincidence

Isn't it the fault of the own people of the world for putting a whole in our Ionosphere?

I remember reading something about this in a 2012 theory.

It's like the group of people who rule this world wants this to happen....

What's up with H.A.A.R.P?
