Solar Flares Send Earth to the Dark Ages

This headline has not been released before, but many scientists are worried that it may be the news of the day in December 2012. The recent enormous explosion on the sun is a reminder that a horrible storm could erupt that will utterly destroy everything electronic on the earth. Prophets have been saying that Dec. 21, 2012 is the day that will happen. Naysayers keep telling us not to worry. My concern is that most people will listen to the naysayers and dismiss these warnings as nothing

If it weren’t for the fact that the sun has caused many problems in the past, I would be right there with the naysayers. Unfortunately, the facts point to a great increase in solar activity next year. This will be bad news for the earth, or more accurately, our modern way of life.

I do not expect the earth to suddenly end as some are saying. That is inconsistent with reality. The real situation suggests that the sun will dramatically increase its eruptions which will result in extremely high levels of magnetic radiation hitting the earth. Since all of our modern equipment is operated by electromagnetic power, high intensity bursts from the sun will cause the destruction of most of our infrastructure. Our power grid can fail. Our cars can quit working. Our satellites can be destroyed. Everything may just quit working. Do you have any idea what that will do to our world? We won’t be able to get to work. Food suppliers can’t get us food. The water system will stop supplying water. No electricity. No water. No food.

What will we do? All I can say is,” I wish I had been born Amish.”  They never embraced our modern way of life. They will survive. So will the people in the lowest level undeveloped countries. Maybe, if you live on a small farm, you can survive. The rest of us will most likely starve to death, if we don’t die in the riots.

I think that I will plant a garden next spring. Oh yeah, and devise a way to protect myself from the thieves. Even a blind man can see we need to prepare, just in case.
