Current Space Weather Warnings

A Geomagnetic Storm is heading to earth on or about March 17th, 2010- St. Patrick’s Day.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/03/14/magnetic-storm-st-patricks-day-cme-approaching-earth/ Known to cause electrical interruptions and blackouts, last night in Chile millions of people were in a blackout with no power.  The above chart illustrates the current warnings coming from space.

A massive power failure h as plunged quake-hit Chile into darkness, stretching 2,000km (1,250 miles) and affecting up to 90% of the population. …Chile’s infrastructure was devastated by the quake on 27 February .  The operators of the electricity grid said the blackout was caused by the failure of a high-voltage transformer about 700km south of the capital.  Officials said the blackout was not directly related to the earthquake. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8567910.stm

If the power outage wasn’t related to the earthquake, was the reason the high-voltage transformer failed due to interference from the geomagnetic storm or just a mechanical malfunction? 

Rather inconveniently- Real-Time Prediction of Large Geomagnetic Storms by A joint product of the Plasma Physics Division, Naval Research Laboratory, the WIND MFI team of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and the World Data Center C2 (WDC-C2) for Geomagnetism, Kyoto University, Japan,  is not working!

The real-time prediction method is currently undergoing testing. The algorithm requires solar wind data as input and calculates the probability that the solar wind being encountered presages the imminent arrival of a geoeffective structure resulting in a storm exceeding a specified threshold.http://wwwppd.nrl.navy.mil/prediction/index.html

Exceeding a threshold? 

Is this an indicator that the solar activity is so increased that the predicted geomagnetic storm approaching Earth is far more than what scientists are letting on?

The Journal of Geophysical Research on March 6, 2010 released reports of a study that claims, “Satellite observations often show that relativistic electron fluxes that decrease during a geomagnetic storm main phase do not recover their prestorm level even when the storm has substantially recovered.”  http://science.journalfeeds.com/astronomy-astrophysics/journal-of-geophysical-research-space-physics/numerical-estimates-of-drift-loss-and-dst-effect-for-outer-radiation-belt-relativistic-electrons-with-arbitrary-pitch-angle/20100305/   They don’t recover?  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.  WTF.

Another study claims that, ” Using observations and two different global MHD simulations, we demonstrate that the solar wind speed controls the magnetospheric response such that the higher the speed, the more dynamic and irregular is the magnetospheric response.” http://science.journalfeeds.com/astronomy-astrophysics/journal-of-geophysical-research-space-physics/magnetospheric-modes-and-solar-wind-energy-coupling-efficiency/20100305/  Finally something that makes common sense- the faster the sun’s wind speed, the more the magnetosphere can be altered. 

Sunspot 1054 is so big, you can see it without a telescope March 14, 2010

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that, “With the beginning of a new 11-year cosmic cycle, the number of sunspots will increase along with the possibility of a solar super storm. NASA data show the peak of solar activity will be in 2015. …Sunspots were discovered by Galileo Galilei in 1610.  http://www.smh.com.au/environment/solar-storms-could-wreak-havoc-with-electronic-systems-20100313-q53m.html 

Forget about waiting until 2015, March of 2010 is suddenly proving to be an active time for the sun.  If you are into shortwave radio you can tune in for a listen.  “We are currently in the beginning of cycle 24. Each cycle has been numbered since the cycle was first observed by scientists. So far, “24” has been slow to get busy, and ham-radio operators and shortwave listeners have been looking forward to better conditions for the last few years.

There are signs that 24 might be getting ready to put on a show. While talking on a local repeater several nights ago, Ken Blume (K2UPI) noted that he had recently experienced abnormally good HF conditions. http://blog.syracuse.com/cny/2010/03/radio_buffs_tune_in_to_solar_cycle.html

Not only can you listen in but depending on where you live, just look outside to see the effects from the sun on Earth.

The Sky Over Tromsø, Norway March 15, 2010

Other parts of the world weren’t so lucky to observe such beauty without destruction.  From http://whyfiles.org/shorties/097ocean_belch/,  “massive hydrogen sulfide gas eruption from the ocean floor kills fish, exposes local people to a major rotten egg stench, and causes ecological havoc in the ocean,” as was witnessed this week by the OrbView-2 SeaWiFS satellite.

Namibia sulfide emissions, March 13, 2010

It looks good from space and, “Natural, perhaps, but given the stakes to the critical fishing industry, and the suspicion that the eruptions may be getting more frequent and intense, an international collaboration is starting to examine possible links to global warming or other large ecological disturbances.

We already know Ecological Disturbances can be a result of any number of things from HAARP, EISCAT, LHC, etc, Solar Flares, and just maybe  influenced by geomagnetic storms.

This morning, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory recorded a halo CME emerging from the vicinity of sunspot 1054: movie. The cloud appears to be heading toward Earth and it could spark geomagnetic storms when it arrives on or about March 17th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras. http://www.spaceweather.com/

Uh, oh.

This Coronal Mass Ejection or CME’s appear to be related to the impact of a series of comets that plunged into the sun and disappeared on March 14, 2010.

CME’s are known to wreak havoc with the Earth’s  magnetosphere, often causing interruptions in radio transmissions, causing power outages (blackouts), and causing damage to satellites and electrical transmission lines. wiki-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronal_mass_ejection

In March 1989, a geomagnetic storm triggered the collapse of a power grid in Quebec, leaving an estimated 6 million people without electricity for nine hours. And in 2006, a burst of solar radiation disoriented virtually all GPS receivers on the lighted half of the Earth, the National Weather Service said via http://www.usnews.com/science/articles/2010/01/11/sun-may-soon-send-magnetic-storms-toward-earth.html

This white-light image shows a coronal mass ejection exploding from the sun and extending about 10 million kilometers (the small white circle represents the sun, which is centered on the instrument’s blocking disk). SOHO/LASCO (ESA and NASA)

a CME initiates an interplanetary tsunami—a flood of billions of tons of protons and electrons bursting from the sun that is capable of massive interference with any flux-sensitive apparatus it happens to encounter.  The Industrial Physicist at http://www.aip.org/tip/INPHFA/vol-9/iss-6/p18.html

Some claim that there is a magnetic reversal going on as illustrated in the above video.  A perfect storm for the 2012 doomsday believers.

Among other things that could alter the magnetosphere are experiments from HAARP, who temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere by beaming what it claims is very low frequency radio waves (VLF’s).

According to the HAARP website, it’s transmitter “becomes useless during a geomagnetic storm. During these common solar induced events, the natural variations reach a level that is more than 10,000 times stronger than any variation that HAARP could produce… The Earth’s static magnetic field, in turn, is more than 1,000 times stronger than the variations that occur during a magnetic storm and more than 10,000,000 times stronger than the variations that HAARP could produce.”

In turn, if HAARP really has, could, would or had influence on earthquakes; it is clearly giving warning that a magnetic storm could greatly impact the earth.

HAARP and EISCAT do heat the atmosphere, and CERN and FERMI do heat the underground.  Up and down the Earth is being bombarded by artificially created energy that has to go somewhere.   Noting correlations between experiments occurring on or near the same days as the Chile and Haiti quakes at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/03/12/lhc-shutting-down-half-assed-power-earthquake/

We know this is where the antennae tin foil hats come on.

Numerous sites like Aaronsreality http://aaronsreality.blogspot.com/ claim that the use of HAARP can not cause earthquakes saying it doesn’t have enough power.  Although he speculates:

 HAARP could be prepared to move the discharge if possible. The calculation requires knowledge of the discharge fault and attraction/repulsive power necessary to move it a few hundred miles out of populated areas. Moving the discharge may reduce the discharge from one 7-9 magnitude earthquake to many 4 and 5s.

The Calm Before The Magnetic Storm on The Chicago River

As a geomagnetic storm approaches, the Lurking on the Grassy Knoll Institute noted that every year since 1961, for the St. Patrick’s Day parade, the city dyes the Chicago river green. Today the river turned green at approximately 10:45am.   This year LOTGK managed to get it’s logo on one of the boats!  http://lotgk.wordpress.com/2010/03/13/chicago-river-dyed-green/

Besides preparing for St. Patrick’s Day festivities this morning, there were two more large earthquakes. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php while Chile continues to get 5+M aftershocks.

MAP  6.6   2010/03/14 08:08:05    37.780    141.562  39.0   NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
MAP  6.4   2010/03/14 00:57:46    -1.710    128.051  52.4   KEPULAUAN OBI, INDONESIA 

The probabilities for significant disturbances in Earth’s magnetic field are currently 30%-35% probability in the next 24-48 hours says SpaceWeather.   Is that percentage enough to warrant preventative measures against additional large quakes or at the very least loosing cell phone and Internet services? 

A poster on the popular Godlike Productions message board predicted large quakes might occur on February 27.  At 3:45 AM today, a magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck Chile, the fifth or sixth strongest quake of the last 100 years.  The poster, “ZOSIME,” based his prediction on the impact of a coronal mass ejection (CME) upon the earth’s magnetosphere.  The CME eruption was observed leaving the sun several days ago.  via http://vanshardware.com/2010/02/8-8-chilean-earthquake-predicted-two-days-ago/


Light Eye explains it this way, http://fgportugal.blogspot.com/2010/02/feb-28-solar-earthquake-evidence.html

After a solar storm strikes the Earth a geomagnetic storm erupts. The increased magnetic field strength of the magnetosphere pushes down on the ionosphere, which pushes against the oceans. It is due to the electromagnetic properties of sea water that the oceans become temporarily heavier. The extra heaviness of the sea water, coupled with the daily tidal forces of the Sun and Moon cause greater than normal forces to press against both the eastern and western boundaries of the Pacific Plate, but more so the western boundary in the South Pacific Islands region.

Ironically,  “An instrument package set for launch by NASA on Feb. 10 is expected to give scientists a better understanding of the sun’s impact on space weather.  The Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE) will fly on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and measure rapid fluctuations in the sun’s extreme ultraviolet output that can have profound effects on Earth’s upper atmosphere.”  Unfortunately,  “the transfer to GEO orbit and commissioning of instruments are expected to take ~3 months. http://lasp.colorado.edu/eve/data/data_product_summary.htm 

To be precautionary, first unplug anything connected to the electrical grid to prevent power surges. Next head out for some green eggs, and corned beef then wash it down with a green beer or two.  When we see the Leprechauns running for cover, and the sky turning green we’ll know if the luck of the Irish holds out for Earth’s electronic grids.

The current outlook for the aurora borealis, in the mean time remains calm to low the next few days.  http://www.gedds.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast/ Wonder if we have the technology to dye them green for Saint Patrick’s Day?

Mathew 24- 6- And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.7- For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes…

The end of the world is not yet, but for those people around the world effected by disasters like tsunami’s, volcanoes, war, famine, etc., and the recent rash of earthquakes in Central Italy, we have to look toward the arguments of predictability and governments role in squelching information and limiting free speech. 

“”It is part of the American myth that our major media are objective and unbiased, a mainstay of democracy. We believe, however, that the overwhelmingly dominant corporate media have become merely the voice of an increasingly unilateral and controlled empire, devoted to the indoctrination of the public in the interests of corporate, industrial, military, and ruling powers. ” http://mediafilter.org/caq/ 

Giampaolo Guiliani is a well respected scientist at The San Grasso Physics lab, in L’Aquila, central Italy.  He did not stand on a street corner wearing a sandwich board, proclaiming the end of the world, dressed like Jesus Christ.  He made a prediction based on his years of seismographic study and an interpretation of radon science that an earthquake was forecast for the Central Italy. The Italian government officials censored him and shut him down for “spreading alarm.”  

Rather than relying in his expertise and plausibility, he was admonished by his own government for fear mongering pure and simple.  Fear mongering is just another form of control by governments who believe generally that the populations is stupid, that riots will ensue, and civil unrest will be imminent.   Can a citizen no longer allow people to decide for themselves what is believable?  Many people in the L’Aquila region never heard the warning to make a decision. 

In the US, among others- radio personality Alex Jones at http://www.infowars.com/  offers a conspiracy-tinted view containing strong opposition to socialism, communism, and the New World Order with insight and predictability of governments covert intentions and other conspiracy theories.  Art Bell on Coast to Coast Radio offered an outlet for  a mature outlet of discussion.  At its initial peak in popularity, Coast To Coast AM was syndicated on more than 500 radio stations and claimed 15 million listeners nightly.  Current show host George Norry still discusses off-beat topics like the paranormal, occult, UFOs, pseudo scients and conspiracy theories.

In the U.S. we enjoy a pretty open dialog thanks to the Freedom of Speech clause but for how long?  The Fairness Doctrine moving through the Senate will give the government the power to decide what is on terrestrial radio, satellite radio and may go so far as regulating TV programming.  Is it in the name of fairness or fear? 

Bilderberg icon, Senator Jay Rockefeller has labeled cyber security as the number one national hazard of attack on the homeland of WV, America or anywhere else.  He said, ” it was it better if we never invented the Internet because it is on the Internet that the DOD gets millions of attacks everyday..they can shut down, electricity, banking and anything we have to offer.”  Way to dis Al Gore!

Apparently, In The New World Order, what better means to eliminate the free exchange of information that to eliminate the Internet in the name of national security? 

Daily, we stay connected with our high technology gadgets like ipods, wireless computers, cell phones, hand held blackberry’s, and iphones.  In the bigger picture we a have computerized military with high tech jet fighters, a space program, nuclear subs, missile silos, nuclear bombs, etc.,  Rockefeller expects us to believe that government can’t protect itself on the Internet? 

Keeping the computers off line that control vital systems and classified data disconnected from the Internet so no one could hack into it would be a good place to start.  What reason would critical infrastructures like nuclear bombs, power grids or transpiration networks for example need to be on the public Internet in the first place?

Under the guise of  Acta the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, the government would have access to your ipod and laptop computers. Actively being pursued among the G8 nations, the purpose of the Acta agreement is to prevent illegal downloading and ripped copyrighted movies. http://www.bluegrasspundit.com/

Best of all, one person could pull the plug on all Internet communications. “El Presidente can order the disconnection of those networks during a “cybersecurity emergency” or national security emergency if needed,   ” writes http://www.engadget.com/2009/04/06/proposed-bill-would-create-national-cybersecurity-advisor/

Office of the National Cybersecurity Adviser within the White House—is established in a separate short-but-sweet bill running a mere three pages.   The details fall in place in the language of The Cybersecurity Act of 2009  ‘‘our nation’s security and economic prosperity depend on the security, stability, and integrity of communications and information infrastructure that are largely privately-owned.and globally-operated.’’ http://static.arstechnica.com/tech-policy/CYBERSEC5.pdf 

Under Obama if the government operates things and controls information we will all be safer!  Whew, I was worried about having health records on line under certified EHR technology-  qualified electronic health record and that is certified pursuant to section 3001. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread437069/pg1

There is also a new industry-run mailing list to foster discussion of security issues on SCADA systems — the aging and insecure computerized control networks behind the electric grid and other critical infrastructures, but you have watch what you say.

“Due to heightened security and awareness levels worldwide, ALL MESSAGES ARE WATCHED CAREFULLY.  Violators who report methods that are going to disable, damage, dismember, destroy, or disarm any control system, SCADA device, or infrastructure will be reported to DHS (and/or their respective national or federal authority).”  http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2008/02/scada-security.html#previouspost

One can no longer discuss security issues without the risk of arrest?  Does the security of industrial networks and industrial control systems (seguridad scada) offer a deterrent to crime or a threat to restrict freedom of speech, or is it just plain old fear mongering?

The WSJ says “Cyberspies have penetrated the U.S. electrical grid and left behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system, according to current and former national-security officials.”  “There are intrusions, and they are growing.” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123914805204099085.html

Are the theatrics of Hollywood movie’s and books providing a warning that disasters imagined, may turn out to be real?  In the new movie Echelon, dangerous security operatives chase the engineer across the globe, while a powerful government official pursues a mysterious agenda that threatens the stability of the entire world. The http://lighthousepatriotjournal.wordpress.com/2009/04/01/hollyweird-fantasy-versus-the-real-world/#more-5184 has an interesting post on the relationships on fantasy movies and government censorship.  Rumors have abounded for several years of a massive system designed to intercept virtually all email and fax traffic in the world and subject it to automated analysis, despite laws in many nations (including this one) barring such activity. The system is called ECHELON!  From a 1997 article in the London Telegraph- “There are times in history when technology helps democratise, and times when it helps centralise. This is a time of centralisation.” http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/ECHELON/echelon.html  Centralizing or a New World Order?

Today Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said, “We are creating a new world, a balanced world. A new world order, a multi polar world,..The unipolar world has collapsed. The power of the U.S. empire has collapsed,” he said. “Everyday, the new poles of world power are becoming stronger.”  

In times of prayer for the people affected by the Central Italian Earthquake, and in celebration of Passover and Easter, look toward the Bible in 2 Peter 3, 13 – “But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.   Peter testified that God will create a new world.  

Man or God, someone is bringing The New World Order to reality, and that is no prediction.

Us and Them or Us vs Them?
