Solar storm=>"Once in a life time"

What is your best estimate of the neg effect of the following scientific news release on a 6KW solar array sys? :

ASA Hiding Approaching Doomsday Space Event
NASA and the European Space Agency have been warning the world for two years about the approaching catastrophes that may unfold during late 2011 through 2012.

Few have been listening.

Calling it a "once in a lifetime super solar storm event," NASA warns that killer solar flares can slam the Earth knocking out the Northern Hemisphere's technological infrastructure and kicking everything back to the level of the late 1800s.

Russia too has voiced concern. And now the eminent astrophysicist, Alexey Demetriev ["PLANETOPHYSICAL STATE OF THE EARTH AND LIFE"], claims what is happening is worse—much worse—than what NASA and the ESA have admitted.

Our entire solar system is entering an immense, deadly, interstellar energy cloud. World defenseless against unknown, alien cloud

Terrified scientists at NASA discovered on July 14, 2010 that our system is passing through an interstellar energy cloud. This highly energized, electrified cloud of gas is disturbing and disrupting the sun. In conjunction with Earth's weakening and moving magnetic shield, the world is becoming defenseless against massive solar flares and intense radiation.

NASA, the ESA and the National Academy of Science have isued an unprecedented solar storm warning for 2012. But what NASA and the federal government are hiding, according to Demetriev, is that the sun—and everything in our solar system—has plunged into an alien, unknown photon cloud...a belt of danger that could precipitate gigantic solar explosions, magnetic anomalies, careening cometary masses and destabilize the orbits of some asteroids.

Entire solar system at risk

Dr. Demetriev has revealed that both Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes report that the entire solar system is at risk. Worse, Merav Opher, a NASA Heliophysics Guest Investigator from George Mason University says this interstellar energy cloud is unstable and turbulent.

The Russian scientist further claims this cloud of energy is exciting the atmospheres of our planets and especially our sun. As this interstellar energy cloud continues to excite/charge the sun, it causes the sun to become more active, resulting in greater output from the sun.

Deadly supermassive flares affect weather

The bottom line is bigger and more frequent solar storms and coronal mass ejections (CME’s) resulting in the Carrington effect, named after 19th Century scientist Richard Carrington . The Carrington effect predicts the generation of supermassive flares that affect the Earth in ways that are very unpleasant.

This interstellar cloud of electrical energy is also absorbed by the Earth, and scientist have found that it results in more earthquakes, all while dramatically affecting the weather.

Demetriev warns to prepare for the worst. “Global catastrophe! Not in tens of years from now, but in ones of years.”

What to expect? The strong possibility of the loss of high technology, increasing superstorms, an encroaching Ice Age, more frequent and massive earthquakes and volcanic activity, tsunamis and Earth exposed to deadly radioactive baths.

In short, the 2012 fearmongers may not have been far from the truth after all. If Alexey Demetriev is correct, the events occuring in 2012 will be just short of Doomsady...

    Re: Solar storm=>"Once in a life time"

    Lets not go down the theological road again--We are not going to solve the world's problems here.

    Regarding solar flares--They are guessing (hopefully educated guesses). And I would certainly like to see them harden the electrical grid (supposedly, it is not that expensive to add surge protection devices to the large transformers) and have a stock/capacity to build replacement parts quickly--but I fear that is not going to happen (does affect the bottom line to do disaster planning).

    Best we can do here is our own disaster prep. But how many of us could realistically plan for a 1-2 years of "off grid" survival (food, water, fuel/energy).

    Obviously, there are many people here that live in rural areas. However, most of the population is "plugged in" around metropolitan areas.

    Worrying about such a cataclysmic event is a non value added activity (sortalike posting on internet fora :p). Either it's going to happen and we are all screwed, or it's not and we'll be what passes for "fine" in this day and age.
