Decreased solar activity over the last few years could potentially trigger a solar maximum or EMP event, halting planet Earth’s modernized civilization as we know it virtually overnight.

Why have the elites been gearing up at unprecedented rates with underground structures in a rushed erratic fashion?
This question has also led me to ask myself, “Does any of this 2012 stuff make sense?”
“The solar cycle (or solar magnetic activity cycle) is the periodic change in the sun’s activity (including changes in the levels of solar radiation and ejection of solar material) and appearance (visible in changes in the number of sunspots, flares, and other visible manifestations). Solar cycles have a duration of about 11 years.
They have been observed (by changes in the sun’s appearance and by changes seen on Earth, such as auroras) for hundreds of years”. — Wikipedia
At one point in 2011, I remember trying to attend an online meeting with top solar scientists and NASA employees who were to release a new discovery via major announcement regarding the suns activities.
When I entered the online chat many members of the public had attended and were enthused for the upcoming announcement that was to be live-streaming any minute.
However, the announcement never took place as official members of the group decided to go into a secret conference.
This peeked my interest. Why would the sun be so secret? Is it a threat? What did these scientists and NASA know?
Later I realized the implications. A massive solar storm could pose a threat to electronic devices, electrical power grids, and NASA’s space station thus spiraling the world into chaos almost overnight.
During a solar flare, charged particles bombard the planet at nearly 4 million miles per hour, and with gapping holes in our magnetosphere, this could cripple planet Earth’s inhabitants in many ways.
Are we headed into a new version of the Maunder Minimum, or will a major sun maximum event pop off?
UniversityToday.com reports one point of view;
Three researchers studying three different aspects of the Sun have all come up with the same conclusion: the Sun’s regular solar cycles could be shutting down or going into hibernation.
A major decrease in solar activity is predicted to occur for the next solar cycle (cycle #25), and our current solar cycle (#24) could be the last typical one. “Three very different types of observations all pointing in the same direction is very compelling,” said Dr. Frank Hill from the National Solar Observatory, speaking at a press briefing today. “Cycle 24 may be the last normal one, and 25 may not even happen.”
Even though the Sun has been active recently as it heads towards solar maximum in 2013, there are three lines of evidence pointing to a solar cycle that may be going on hiatus.
They are: a missing jet stream, slower activity near the poles of the sun and a weakening magnetic field, meaning fading sunspots. Hill, along with Dr. Richard Altrock from the Air Force Research Laboratory and Dr. Matt Penn from the National Solar Observatory independently studied the different aspects of the solar interior, the visible surface, and the corona and all concur that cycle 25, will be greatly reduced or may not happen at all.
However, others think that a massive and devastating solar event might be in the works for late 2012 after the current drop in activity.
Do NASA and government agencies know something we don’t?
Mike Adams writes;
Such a scenario is not merely possible, but factually inevitable. And the global tidal wave threatening all the nuclear power plants of the world isn’t made of water but solar emissions.
The sun, you see, is acting up again. NASA recently warned that solar activity is surging, with a peak expected to happen in 2013 that could generate enormous radiation levels that sweep across planet Earth. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) has even issued an urgent warning about solar flares due to strike in 2012 and 2013.
IBtimes wrote, “With solar activity expected to peak around 2013, the Sun is entering a particularly active time and big flares like the recent one will likely be common during the next few years. …A major flare in the mid-19th century blocked the nascent telegraph system, and some scientists believe that another such event is now overdue.” (http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/194…)
The story goes on to explain:
“Several federal government studies suggest that this extreme solar activity and emissions may result in complete blackouts for years in some areas of the nation. Moreover, there may also be disruption of power supply for years, or even decades, as geomagnetic currents attracted by the storm could debilitate the transformers.”
Why does all this matter? To understand that, you have to understand how nuclear power plants function. Or, put another way, how is nuclear material prevented from “going nuclear” every single day across our planet?
Every nuclear power plant operates in a near-meltdown state
All nuclear power plants are operated in a near-meltdown status. They operate at very high heat, relying on nuclear fission to boil water that produces steam to drive the turbines that generate electricity.
Critically, the nuclear fuel is prevented from melting down through the steady circulation of coolants which are pushed through the cooling system using very high powered electric pumps.
If you stop the electric pumps, the coolant stops flowing and the fuel rods go critical (and then melt down). This is what happened in Fukushima, where the melted fuel rods dropped through the concrete floor of the containment vessels, unleashing enormous quantities of ionizing radiation into the surrounding environment.
The full extent of the Fukushima contamination is not even known yet, as the facility is still emitting radiation. — Mike Adams
I personally have received reports from employee’s within the nuclear power industry stating that nuclear workers were indeed called to meetings in 2011 regarding this issue.
In the meetings, the employee’s were briefed on the possibilities of civil unrest and martial law due to power grid failure. This issue has also been covered on an episode of Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory Show which aired on Tru TV.
According to NASA scientists, there will be a series of unusual solar flare activities in 2012 that will be much more severe than ones in recent times.
These events could lead to a disastrous scenario, a cascade of catastrophe. Unfortunately, the government has made little to no preparation for the populace as they seek to retreat into underground bases which have been readied for the elite only.
In 2008, NASA reported a massive breach in the earth’s magnetosphere, In Star Trek terminology “The Shields are down Scotty”.
With the recent power grid failure in India earlier this year and other problems such as the Fukushima Diachi disaster, one can never be too sure when the kickoff to martial law or a 2012 doomsday apocalyptic scenario may be.
However, what I do know is that this source of mine in the nuclear power industry was told late last year (by officials) to prepare for just that, as power grids worldwide are expected to fail in 2012 or 2013 according to some reports.
Another source mentioned that recently main turbine breakers were tripped in several facilities due to solar flare activity causing problems at several nuclear power plants in the US including Palo Verde in Arizona.
The following reports were detailing how 4 reactors in the same day went down this year alone.
An excerpt from the Baltimore Sun reads;
The sun goes through an 11-year cycle during which sunspots and flares peak and decline. The next peak is expected in 2013, and the radiation that may shower Earth could wreak havoc on satellite communications, radio waves and the electricity grid. (It also could create spectacular aurora borealis — the Northern Lights).
A variety of applications of GPS technology — such as managing cellular telephone signals and tracking planes in the air — could be affected, said Anthony Russo, director of the National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing.
In the worst case, solar flares could disrupt all the electronic systems we’ve come to rely on in daily life. A large burst of radiation from the sun, for example, could knock out power transmission systems for months, grid experts warn.
Two out of three nuclear power plants in Minnesota have been shut down for unscheduled maintenance.
An excerpt from the Star Tribune reads;
Xcel Energy said Tuesday it has shut down two of Minnesota’s three nuclear reactors for what it called minor repairs.
Neither plant released any radiation or posed any danger to citizens, the company said. The Monticello nuclear plant’s single generating unit, which had been operating at 10 percent capacity since last weekend, was shut down because of a leaking pipe inside the plant’s concrete containment structure, the company said.
One of the two nuclear generators at the Prairie Island plant was shut down because its emergency diesel generators suffered exhaust leaks.
“It’s unusual for us to shut down both units in [the] same half day, but it’s not unheard of,” Xcel spokeswoman Mary Sandok said.
The company is compensating by buying more electricity from other providers on the Midwest power grid, Sandok said. Although additional electricity costs are passed to ratepayers, the effect is not likely to be large enough for most to notice, she said.
Also, one of two of Maryland’s nuclear reactors has been shut down as well.
An excerpt from the Baltimore Sun reads;
Operators of the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant in Southern Maryland have shut down one of the two reactors there because a control rod unexpectedly dropped into the reactor core, causing a reduction in power generation, a plant spokesman said Monday.
That’s 4 nuclear plants shutdown in one day earlier this year. Will there be more events to come?
There are 19 days and counting, until December 21, 2012.
What are your thoughts?
I expect to see you all on December 22.
