    shocked2 NASA: Massive solar storm in 2012 could wipe out power grid

    No more internet

    NASA is warning this week that a solar storm currently underway on the surface of the sun is projected to hit earth in 2012. But unlike the coronal mass ejection that provided views of the aurora borealis at lower latitudes than normal earlier this month, this solar storm could be so powerful it may wipe out the power grid on the entire planet.
    NASA says that other geomagnetic storms occurred back in 1859 and 1921, wiping out telegraph wires completely. The storm in 2012 is expected to be even more severe, possibly leaving humans without transportation, communication, or power. This could have a profound effect on the world economy and hold us hostage in a power-less electrical gridlock.
    Could this be the 2012 phenomenon that marks the so-called end of the world or other similar catastrophe?
    The current cycle of the sun is projected to be one of the most intense since record keeping began almost 400 years ago. The geomagnetic storms in the earth's atmosphere in 2012 could have catastrophic effects on the ground here in the Capital District of Albany and upstate New York, with the auroras being a beautiful side effect.
    NASA has talked of the coming 2012 solar storms since 2006, and if correct, say this event could threaten to beat out the historic solar maximum of 1958. Now is a good time to review your disaster plan, especially since next month is National Preparedness Month.

    From your link.....

    According to NASA, at the moment, no one knows when the next super solar storm will erupt. It could be 100 years away or just 100 days. Now is a good time to review your disaster plan, especially since September is National Preparedness Month.
    Same can be said for that meteorite that is just about to hit you on the head.

    NASA Scientist: "Yeah, if solar activity increased enough we could get hit by a stray storm. If strong enough, this could cause some electrical disruptions. Properly shielded systems will remain mostly operational."

    Newspaper Man: "NASA scientists say we're definitely going to lose all electricity FOREVER and it's going to happen SOON."
