    Ok let me start off saying that If anything happens on 2012 it wont be a physical end of the human race but probably the end of government ANYWAYS.. this was posted on another forum that I haunt and i figured id share it here.

    Melbourne, Aug 26 (ANI): Astronomers are predicting that a massive solar storm, much bigger in potential than the one that caused spectacular light shows on Earth earlier this month, is to strike our planet in 2012 with a force of 100 million hydrogen bombs.

    Several US media outlets have reported that NASA was warning the massive flare this month was just a precursor to a massive solar storm building that had the potential to wipe out the entire planet's power grid.

    Despite its rebuttal, NASA's been watching out for this storm since 2006 and reports from the US this week claim the storms could hit on that most Hollywood of disaster dates - 2012.

    Similar storms back in 1859 and 1921 caused worldwide chaos, wiping out telegraph wires on a massive scale. The 2012 storm has the potential to be even more disruptive.

    "The general consensus among general astronomers (and certainly solar astronomers) is that this coming Solar maximum (2012 but possibly later into 2013) will be the most violent in 100 years," News.com.au quoted astronomy lecturer and columnist Dave Reneke as saying.

    "A bold statement and one taken seriously by those it will affect most, namely airline companies, communications companies and anyone working with modern GPS systems.

    "They can even trip circuit breakers and knock out orbiting satellites, as has already been done this year," added Reneke.

    No one really knows what effect the 2012-2013 Solar Max will have on today's digital-reliant society.

    Dr Richard Fisher, director of NASA's Heliophysics division, told Reneke the super storm would hit like "a bolt of lightning", causing catastrophic consequences for the world's health, emergency services and national security unless precautions are taken.

    NASA said that a recent report by the National Academy of Sciences found that if a similar storm occurred today, it could cause "1 to 2 trillion dollars in damages to society's high-tech infrastructure and require four to 10 years for complete recovery".

    The reason for the concern comes as the sun enters a phase known as Solar Cycle 24.

    Most experts agree, although those who put the date of Solar Max in 2012 are getting the most press.

    They claim satellites will be aged by 50 years, rendering GPS even more useless than ever, and the blast will have the equivalent energy of 100 million hydrogen bombs.

    "We know it is coming but we don't know how bad it is going to be," Fisher told Reneke.

    "Systems will just not work. The flares change the magnetic field on the Earth and it's rapid, just like a lightning bolt. That's the solar effect," he added.

    The findings are published in the most recent issue of Australasian Science. (ANI)

    Big deal. The coming "storm" is actually the next peak in a normal cycle of solar activity. That happens regularly and sometimes has deleterious effects, sometimes not.

    Next.

  3. Very interesting.
    I also remember the whole Y2K ordeal too......not really much happened lol. I remmber sitting there and some one i know goes "Well wonder if we are ganna loose power" I laphed at him and said "Well I think since places like CHina are ahead of us by almost a day I think we would have known already"

    Some times we make a bigger deal than what really happens. But then again you never know.

    yeah like I said i dont think it will be the end of the world in any way shape or form but figured people would like to see this.
     
  5. We should have some Good northern lights when it happens :D
     
  6. Mmmm,

    we will just have to take it as it comes. I rather doubt the U.S. will make any real preparations for this situation.

    Maybe we should do what some primitive societies did not all that long ago in the lifetime of the human race, and sacrifice the tribal leader and his family to appease the weather gods. It would be one way to get the Doofus-in-Chief out of office early!

    Hate to disappoint but severe solar storms are real and here in the past couple of months scientist have been very worried because there have been more recently occurring, and strong solar flares than usual. I believe this 100%, because it is a bad possibility. It's not internet made up BS, it is science.

    I guess since the first 2012 drama was shot full of holes they had to come up with some new bs.

    interesting theory ive heard this one before, i cant imagine something is actually going to happen on a date that ancients predicted, i do however believe SOMETHING will happen within the next couple years with all the ridiulousness of our own government if anything happens at all it will be some kind of big *** war or revolution or civil war imho

    If something does happen, I'm sure the current regime will blame it all on Bush.
    And if nothing happens the current regime will take credit for averting a disaster...
    heck, the CEO of the USA may even recommend a a solar storm bail-out package for...who knows.
    It it happens, I'll be sitting on my porch drinking a cold one and have a rifle laying across my lap and a pistol on the patio table watching it all.
