Italian website is concerned about the lack of sunspots.

Here are excerpts:

26 Nov 2018 – Today’s lack of sunspots, characteristic of a solar minimum, could bring record low temperatures, but some experts suggest it could even produce a “mini ice age,” warns this article on mateoweb.eu.

“Something unusual, but perhaps not so unusual on a large scale, is happening to our sun. Continue reading

Lack of sunspot activity now could cause a repeat of weather from 15 centuries ago.

The timing of the new report seems ominous, given the first major winter storm that struck the Northeast, catching weather forecasters and government officials off-guard. In some areas, more than six inches of snow fell, forcing children to shelter overnight in their schools after busses were turned around, and stranding vehicles on roadways overnight.

How Vulnerable Is The Electrical Grid?

Power

 

When the electricity stops in modern civilization, pretty much everything else stops. Not even gasoline-powered vehicles can get far before they are obliged to seek a fill-up—which they cannot get because gas pumps rely on electricity to operate.

When I wrote “The storms are only going to get worse” three weeks ago, I thought the world would have to wait quite a while for a storm more devastating than hurricanes Harvey and Irma. But instead, Hurricane Maria followed right after them and shut down electricity on the entire island of Puerto Rico except for those buildings with on-site generators. Continue reading

A “Super-Powerful” EMP Attack: North Korea’s Newest Weapon Against The U.S.

 

The dynamics of the standoff between the US and North Korea have shifted dramatically in the past week.

First, the North started with an unexpectedly sharp provocation – launching a missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido – before following that up with its sixth nuclear test. Also, judging by the size the earthquake detected in the country’s mountainous North on Sunday morning, North Korea may have been telling the truth when it said it conducted what it described as its first hydrogen bomb test.

And while the North bragged about the weapon’s “great destructive power” in a TV broadcast, what caught analysts’ attention was a mention of a different tactic: detonating  an H-bomb at high altitude to create an electromagnetic pulse that could knock out parts of the US electrical grid.

FEMA Is Preparing For A Solar Storm That Would Take Out The Grid

 

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration) is planning for a massive solar storm that would be so strong, it would take down the power grid.

Noting that the rare, yet “high-consequence” scenario has “the potential for catastrophic impact on our nation and FEMA’s ability to respond.” Continue reading

Top Russian Scientist: ‘Fear A Deep Temperature Drop — Not Global Warming’

 

The sun defines the climate, not carbon dioxide. So says eminent Russian space scientist, Habibullo Abdussamatov (Dr. Sc. – Head of Space research laboratory of the Pulkovo Observatory). Also Head of the Russian/Ukrainian joint project Astrometria, Abdussamatov (pictured) is featured on page 140 of the 2009 U.S. Senate Report of More Than 700 Dissenting Scientists Over Man-Made Global Warming.

Below Dr Abdussamatov explains why carbon dioxide is “insignificant” in climate change (translated from Russian by Lucy Hancock). Continue reading

Germany is getting closer to nuclear fusion—the long-held dream of unlimited clean energy

 

German scientists today will set about the first steps towards what has become the Holy Grail of energy—nuclear fusion, which has the potential for unlimited amounts of clean power. There are a number of challenges to harnessing this power—researchers need to build a device that can heat atoms to temperatures of more than 100 million °C (180 million °F).

After almost nine years of construction work and more than a million assembly hours, researchers from the Max Planck Institute in Greifswald are set to do just that by heating a tiny amount of hydrogen until it becomes as hot, hopefully, as the center of the Sun. Continue reading

In November, the White House’s National Science and Technology Council released its National Space Weather Action Plan outlining how the federal government might respond to a solar storm, the term used to describe varying bursts of energy released by the sun.

According to researchers, an extreme enough solar storm could cripple the world’s electronic and satellite systems, potentially causing financial damages tallying over $2 trillion.

We all know that major storms can wreak havoc, flooding cities and decimating infrastructure. But there’s an even bigger worry than wind and rain: space weather. If a massive solar storm hit us, our technology would be wiped out. The entire planet could go dark.

“We’re much more reliant on technology these days that is vulnerable to space weather than we were in the past,” said Thomas Berger, director of the Space Weather Prediction Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He told Gizmodo, “If we were hit by an extreme event today, it’d be very difficult to respond.” Continue reading

Winter is Coming: Sun Cooling Means Temps in Europe, US to Fall

https://i2.wp.com/cdn5.img.sputniknews.com/images/102381/63/1023816331.jpg

 

The sun is expected to enter a weaker cycle in the coming decades, which could partially offset global warming in future winters in northern Europe and the eastern United States, new research suggests.

The sun has been in a period of high activity for the past few decades. But a team of British and American scientists believe there is now a 15-20% chance of a weaker period of activity, known as a grand solar minimum, occurring in the next 40 years, the Guardian reported. Continue reading

Are you ready for a 10 years with no power grid? Massive solar flare could cause decade-long blackout

Whether through a terrorist EMP or a solar flare, it’s said up to 90% of the American population could perish should the grid go offline. Furthermore, if a terrorist wanted to knock it out, all that needs to be done is taking out only nine substations (See also HERE). America has become so vulnerable and the people so blind.

(NaturalNews) One morning in September, 1859, British astronomer Richard Carrington sat in his private observatory, drawing pictures of sunspots using a telescope which projected an image of the sun onto a screen.

As he drew and observed, there suddenly appeared a brilliant flash of white light on the surface of the sun. Startled, he ran to find witnesses to what he realized was a very unusual event, but by the time he returned, the massive solar flare that Carrington observed had mostly dissipated.

From the NASA website:

[T]elegraph systems worldwide went haywire. Spark discharges shocked telegraph operators and set the telegraph paper on fire. Even when telegraphers disconnected the batteries powering the lines, aurora-induced electric currents in the wires still allowed messages to be transmitted. Continue reading

Upcoming ‘Supermoon’ eclipse will dazzle Britain, but hit Europe’s power grids hard

The Supermoon eclipse, as the phenomenon is known, is an astronomical alignment where the Moon is sent on a trajectory between the Sun and the Earth, depriving us of light. The event will occur on March 20 at around 8:40GMT.

Scotland will have it best though, with a whopping 98 percent of the sky darkened, compared to about 85 percent for the south of England. For best results the Scottish need to look up starting 9:36 am. Continue reading

Sign Of Judgment? Total Solar Eclipse On March 20th Falls In The Middle Of The Four Blood Red Moons

It’s highly recommended that you see this previous post for a great thorough explanation from a historical and Biblical context. The 20th should look quite interesting being that things are even more heated in the Middle East. The Obama administration is doing everything it can to keep Netanyahu from being reelected, including meddling in foreign affairs of an ally by sending political hit squads (among possibly threatening to shoot down Israeli war planes) which means he might have to strike Iran beforehand, otherwise a new incoming Israeli administration could be suicidally complacent and be attacked.

Could this bring war? Maybe. Could this bring an economic collapse of America? Maybe. What exactly will happen, if something does, is an unknown and is for God to determine. We do know, however, that the entire world over is in dire straits and is one event away from catastrophe.

Also, don’t forget “Israel” doesn’t mean the nation of Israel from a Biblical context. It applies to the lost tribes of Israel that in modern times include such nations as the United States, Great Britain and Australia, for example. Knowing the difference between “Israel” and “Judah”, for example, is key in today’s times. More information can be found on this HERE.

The total solar eclipse on March 20th falls on Nisan 1, which is the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar.  According to Jewish tradition, a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 is a sign of judgment.  And this has certainly been true in the past.  For example, there was a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 in 70 AD.  Later that year, the Romans attacked Jerusalem and completely destroyed the Temple.  What makes all of this even more interesting is the fact that the solar eclipse on March 20th falls right in the middle of the blood moon tetrad, and it also happens to fall during the Shemitah year.  If you are not a believer, you may be tempted to dismiss all of this as some sort of extremely bizarre coincidence.  If you are a believer, you also might be skeptical.  But by the end of this article, at least you will understand what so many people are talking about right now.

Mystery at the sun’s south pole: Nasa reveals huge ‘coronal hole’ on the solar surface where winds reach 500 miles per SECOND

This could have an unprecedented effect on electronics on Earth, which could in turn cause further devastating effects on human life.

For those that follow Bible prophecy, look no further than Revelation 8:2.

 

Coronal holes are regions of the corona where the magnetic field reaches out into space rather than looping back down onto the surface - and eject solar winds far faster than other parts of the sun.

 

  • Coronal holes are regions of the corona where the magnetic field reaches out into space
  • Particles moving along those magnetic fields can leave the sun rather than being trapped near the surface
  • Polar coronal hole can remain visible for five years or longer, although constantly changes shape

There were no fireworks on the sun to welcome in the New Year – and in fact, scientists say the end of the year was relatively quiet on the solar surface.

However, the sun has started 2015 with a mysterious event – a huge hole has appeared.

Known as a coronal hole, the phenomenon occurred near the south pole – and is seen as a dark area covered all of its base in these stunning images.
