Think this pandemic is bad? Wait til the power goes out.
As we move further into 2020, solar activity dwindles. This year, solar activity will be marked as the lowest in over 200 years. The low in the sun's 11-year cycle will also have at least some repercussions for the climate here on Earth.
Earth's magnetic field is getting significantly weaker, the magnetic north pole is shifting at an accelerating pace, and scientists readily admit that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause "trillions of dollars" in damage.
Right now, the sun is a cueball, as seen below in this image today from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and has been without sunspots for 10 days. So far in 2018, 61% of days have been without sunspots.
Massive solar storm that will slam Earth TOMORROW could knock out power supplies, damage satellites and trigger stunning auroras
and underground conduit pipes. Solar flares may negatively impact the planet's power grids, railway systems, and underground pipelines through a phenomenon called geomagnetically induced currents (GICs), a recent study found
The threat of an EMP attack from North Korea is "real and terrifying," reports PJ Media. John Moore writes:
Over the weekend, we reviewed the state of the solar data for March 2017.
Massive solar flares have the potential to shut down power grids on Earth and wreak havoc on navigation systems
If Earth's magnetic field was hit by charged particles the effects could also include radar and satellite interference, causing problems phone and internet networks and navigation services.
A rare space weather event of the kind that could damage future satellite-dependent technology such as power grids and communications networks occurred at just the right moment on Mar, 17, 2015, according to a paper by NASA scientists published in th
An Air Force program, created to improve radio transmission, might be the answer
NASA is one step closer in its mission to "touch" the sun.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a minor solar radiation storm warning on Thursday morning following readings from a weather satellite in orbit around the Earth.
Racing Toward Earth. The Sun sure has been acting up lately. Early this morning it let loose with yet another in a veritable string of flares -- gargantuan explosions of radiation and solar material -- many of them pointed toward Earth.
Solar Uptick, Storms, Earthquake
President Obama, Al Gore and other alarmists continue to prophesy manmade global warming crises, brought on by our "unsustainable" reliance on fossil fuels.
The sun is almost completely blank.

A geomagnetic storm that government scientists rate as severe hit the planet on Tuesday morning.
Homeland Security officials are warning that a major coronal mass ejection, solar flare or electromagnetic pulse may be inevitable and catastrophic to modern civilization. The devastation to the electric grid and modern infrastructure could impact th
A NASA satellite charged with staring at the sun captured an incredible view of a powerful solar flare on Thursday (Oct. 2).
The sun has gone quiet…solar cycle 24 continues to rank as one of the weakest cycles more than a century
The sun is putting on a fireworks show again.
Introduction to Faraday Cages
The sun erupted with a massive solar flare late Thursday (April 24), triggering a temporary communications blackout on some parts of Earth.
The sun left off a mid-level solar flare on April 18, peaking at 9:03 a.m. EDT, and NASA captured a nice image of the event.
The strongest earthquakes recorded in Baku in 2000 and 2014 occurred at the pick of solar activity and magnetic storms
