As we enter the next Solar Maximum , which occurs every 11 years, we may be able to see more Corona Mass Ejections (CME) from the Sun, similar to that of 1859. It is known that the impact from the solar flares against the Earth’s magnetic shield, may cause interference to communication systems on earth or worse, catastrophic power outages.

Reports of solar flares are well documented with videos and photos from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. One of the most ‘magnificent flares’ happened on June 7, 2011, as sunspot complex 1226-1227 produced an M2-class solar flares. Fortunately, it was not directed towards Earth. The eruption produced an S1-class radiation storm and a massive CME (Corona Mass Ejections) that will affect our planet. Solar wind, at speed of over 3 million miles per hour, is headed our way. Scientists are expecting 30% of the CME to reach Earth on approximately, June 10, 2011.

Scientists expect some interference on communication systems for the next few days as the radiation storm passes. You may notice static on your cell phone or even dropped calls and even interruptions to satellites and GPS devices. Some HAM and CB radio users are already reporting interference.

The June 7 solar flare was definitely a rare event. But, if the flare was pointing directly towards Earth, serious power outage and communication breakdown may occur.

On March 10, 1989, the Corona Mass Ejections from the Sun, caused a power overload in Quebec, Canada, creating a mass blackout for millions of people. On December 5 and 7, 2006, two X3-class solar flares caused widespread interruption of shortwave communication and survey systems in China.

So, what could happen if there’s a mass power outage that last for weeks or even months? Are you and your family prepared to be without electricity for that length of time? The first thing that comes to mind is that all the food in your refrigerator will go bad. What about ways to communicate with your loved ones? No electricity means no cell phones or land line phones; no internet connection; no computers. No electricity means no lights at night. No security alarm systems. Unable to take cash out at the ABM as the banks are closed due to security reasons, plus their computers are down from the power outage. Stores are closed because no lights inside, cash registers and scanners unable to work without electricity. You will not be able to purchase gasoline for your car because the pumps require electricity and also no way to process credit cards. No police protection because you can’t contact them by phone.

Companies like ‘Solutions From Science’ are selling Solar Powered Generators that are easy to use and not to mention, affordable. People are stocking up on these units so that if there’s a mass power outage, they have the electricity they need. Because these solar backup generator units are in such high demands, ‘Solutions From Science’ claims they only have enough inventory until the end of September, 2011 and there is a 30-day shipping time. So, if you want to purchase one for your family, you need to Buy One NOW!, before they are SOLD OUT or price increase due to demand!

This is not another Y2K or end of the world scare! There are photos and videos to prove that this is real and it is happening right now, whether you believe it or not.

Should you worry about solar flares?

Should you worry about mass power outage?

You decide!
