U.S. space agency NASA released a warning that a massive solar flare was recorded on Monday that could cause spectacular geomagnetic storms on Earth as soon as Wednesday, which here in the United States is Independence Day.
Video published by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory shows the flare in multiple wavelengths jetting out from a sunspot on July 2. The agency said that it caused a magnetic burst that may be powerful enough to cause significant static interruptions in some radio communications in Europe and light up the night skies with atmospheric auroras.
Talk about a fireworks display.
The burst was almost powerful enough to be classified by NASA as an X-class solar flare, the highest and most threatening rating. An X-class flare could significantly disrupt space-based electronics like global positioning systems, cause stock markets to crash or even knock out whole power grids for weeks or months, which NASA has been warning about for years now after predicting the current period of intense solar activity.
The latest flare shouldn’t be enough to cause such disruptions, but NASA says that conditions are ripe for another X-class flare. A similar event in 1989 caused blackouts in Canada.
Maybe this is just a big distraction on the part of the U.S. and International governments to conceal the fact that the world is indeed broke, and they want plenty of time to escape into their well-stocked luxurious missile silos buried deep underground, before we all find out they have f**ked us over one last time.
But then again maybe it's something else, but it can't be real, because solar flares like climate change just don't happen in the real world where having enough money can buy our way out of everything, even the things that nature throws at us.
