The problem is, NASA and the media totally covered this story up and downplayed the seriousness of the CME in 2012. They were clearly terrified of the effect of telling Americas they were in grave danger. People are mental midgets these days, so officials simply pretend it didn't happen. People would not prepare for the Solar Event..... they would panic, wipe out all the stores of inventory, and sit in their homes and tremble.
Two years later the truth comes out. Amazing !!!
I covered this story long ago online, and many other web sites covered it. I told you to put your technology things in a clothes dryer or a metal file cabinet that was completely enclosed.
READ THE STORY THAT
THE MEDIA ARE FINALLY TELLING YOU
There are ways to prepare for this, but America will have to stop spending tax dollars on rubbish projects and on Imperial War. So, the USA will NOT be ready when the big one comes.
I can also assure you that the results of a CME would be horrific in the USA. People would starve, hospital patients would die, diabetics would die, all work and transportation would collapse, gasoline would be gone, and generally, the USA would set back to about 1930 before rural electrification.
The one big monster was mentioned in the article. There are transformers at electrical power plants that kick off the distribution process. They are made only in Indonesia and northern Europe. It takes two to three years to build one. We have at least 150 of these in the USA. A CME would blow them to bits, and until they are replaced ALL electrical power would be non-existent.
You car would be trashed if it was build after 1974. A handful might survive, but extremely few.
I am sorry, but I simply do not have the stomach to go all over the preparation details again. Go on Google and type in "prepare for a CME" and "Solar Flare".
