[Epoch Times][Armageddon Online] Severe Solar Flares Predicted to Reach Earth - Page 6

I am more interested in protecting my electronics. Maybe even make some Faraday cages for my computers.
"Enemy EMP!"

Sorry, someone had to make a MW2 reference.

My WiFi did actually go slow for a while yesterday - doubt it's related though.

Interesting article but some people blew this wayyyyy out of proportion. We even had 3 pages wasted talking about "Global Warming"...

"Global Warming" - look in any science related college text book that even remotely talks about global climate and you will understand why it is not possible.

Top 10 cool things to do in a massive solar flare and I'm not talking about what we've seen so far. I'm talking massive. Hook a voltmeter up to something. Watch the ground go to 400,000 volts while the power line stays at 120. Then inhale gaseous transformers. They smell funny.

There is no 'pole shift' going to happen. Ask the NOAA.

There is no 'solar flare' going to be released by the sun large enough to wipe out most life on the planet. Ask any solar astronomer.

The planet is not going have a giant shift in it's 'tilt' as it already shifts approximately every 26000 years. Ask any astronomer, it's called precession.
That's what I said.

Predicting solar flares is like predicting the weather, it's not exactly clear if this is going to happen or not. There are to many factors to say for sure. To say we are going to get hit by a major solar flare in 2012, is absolutely nuts when scientists can't even predict solar flares with in 5 minutes with accuracy.

Thank God for the magnetic field around our planet, there will be one hell of a cool boris in the north, and south pole from this flare....other than that ain't nuthin gonna happen

Funny enough, according to the mentioned solar cycle we should be coming out of a cooling spell. We have been at a minimum for the last couple of years while global average temperatures have risen. The energy from the sun gives us our temperature but the cause of climate change are the gases in our atmosphere.

But without those gases, we would literally fry..... in all reality we know too little about how things really work to be able to say this or that.....every couple years what scientist thought they knew was wrong....like why did I sneeze really hard when I typed that?

True, the Ozone provides us with a vital protection from UV rays. But there is too much of a good thing.

Even if that were to happen all knowledge isn't thrown out of the window. Theories, models etc are refined with newly acquired knowledge. Even then we do know enough to make good predictions. A model from 1988 proved to be remarkable accurate up till ~2006.

What are you talking about? It's the magnetosphere that protects us from solar winds not ozone..

And on another note, this thread is just full of guess work based on poorly made opinions. Leave the science to scientists people. believe it or not - you don't know everything.

/thatisall

Also, my bad - ozone =/= magnetosphere 8o)

Hmmm, yeah yesterday my toilet was acting funny. Instead of me relieving myself in the toilet, the toilet relieved itself on me. :O The weird things solar flares cause....
