Huge Solar Storm Could Shut Down US

Post  ZEUS10 on Tue Apr 21, 2009 9:08 pm



Such a storm could knock out power nationwide, ABCNews.com reported, leading to a nightmarish scenario that could include failures of transportation, communication and financial systems; shutdowns of government services; and a lack of safe drinking water, food and medication.
Solar storms form when intense bursts of plasma erupt from the surface of the sun, creating what's called a coronal mass ejection (CME). These eruptions can produce electromagnetic interference that wreaks havoc with electricity-dependent technology on Earth.
Although the probability of a worst-case scenario solar storm event is low, researchers say that our increasing reliance on technology makes it crucial to be prepared for such a calamity.

Interesting Zeus, who knows 2012 is near, no one knows what will be, or maybe another scare like for 2000.
Either way we better go down partying...... Laughing

I don't know how big the risk is, but exists a possibility that it could really happen.
