There are several theories as to what may be coming due to the Mayan long count calendar ending, everything from a rogue planet striking earth to a zombie apocalypse. I believe our big change is going to come from the solar tsunami that is scheduled to happen late 2012/ early 2013….why do I believe this…this is why.
At 11:18 am on the morning of Thursday, September 1, 1859, 33-year-old astronomer Richard Carrington witnessed an enormous group of sunspots explode and hurl several massive coronal mass ejections (CME)(solar flare) into space.
These CME travel at such a speed that they can reach Earth in just a few hours. Just before morning the next day, skies all over our planet erupted in red, green, and purple auroras so brilliant that newspapers could be read as easily as in daylight. Indeed, stunning auroras pulsated and could be seen as far as Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamaica and Hawaii. The CME’s also disrupted the telegraph systems causing sparks to fly, catching telegraph paper to burst into flames and shocking the operators.
So what would this mean to us if it happened in the near future? Well imagine a majority of electrical transformers overloading and blowing up, not just the ones on the poles but the ones at the power distribution centers…etc. Now I know it will be bad enough you lost your internet but even worse think about all the nuclear reactors out there that will be without power, the U.S. has 104 reactors which leaves about 330 reactors every where else…that is just the ones we know about. A certain percentage of these WILL have meltdowns.
So lets just say that the reactor situation gets under control, you still have the crash of the electrical grid which will possibly be down for over 6 months. So that will mean none of the following ATM/Banks, Food processing, Gas stations, Cell and land line phones and running water just to name a few. I feel that it’s at this point our society will collapse and the SWHTF. This is what I am preparing for!
Is all of this possible…of course…who would have thought there was a 40 foot tall carnivorous lizard walking around on it’s hind legs gobbling up stuff but there was(Tyrannosaurus Rex).
