A Storm Is Coming: NASA Says Sun’s Poles Set To Flip In 3 To 4 Months, Could Lead To Climate Changes, Other Disruptions


By Victoria Woollaston, Daily Mail – “The sun’s magnetic field is expected to flip in the next three to four months and it could lead to changes in our climate, storms and disruption to satellites.

This solar event only happens once every 11 years and signals what physicists call the Solar Maximum – a time when the Sun’s solar activity is at its highest.

During this peak in activity the outbursts of solar energy can increase the amount of cosmic and UV rays coming towards Earth and this can interfere with radio communications, cause solar bursts of light – known as flares – and can affect the planet’s temperature.

Physicists from Stanford University believe the Sun’s magnetic fields will flip before the end of the year, reversing their polarity. This will cause an increase in solar energy and could lead to changes in climate and satellite disruption. The reversal happens once every 11 years or so.

‘This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system.’

The sun’s magnetic field reverses around every 11 years at the peak of each solar cycle.

The last peak, or Solar Maximum, was in 2000 and Nasa initially predicted the next flip would take place between 2011 and 2012.

Physicists also warned at the time that the next Solar Maximum could be the strongest yet.

Scientists at Stanford’s Wilcox Solar Observatory have been studying the sun’s magnetic field since 1976, during which time they have witnessed three reversals.

In 1859 a solar storm known as the 1859 Solar Superstorm, or Carrington Event after Richard C Carrington who recorded the event, saw numerous solar flares appear all over Earth.

It was so strong that the Northern Lights – a natural light display that appears predominantly in that Arctic and Antarctic regions and is caused by the collision of energetic charged particles in the magnetosphere and solar wind – were said to be have been visible as far south as Rome.” Read more.

Lloyds Of London Warns Of Devastating Electro-Magnetic Pulse From The Sun – “Lloyd’s of London, the world’s specialist insurance company providing services to companies in more than 200 countries, has issued a dire warning of the potential consequences of an electromagnetic pulse event from a solar storm, according to report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin... ’A severe space weather event that causes major disruption to the electricity network in North America could have major implications for the insurance industry,’ the study said. ‘The total U.S. population at risk of an extended outage from a Carrington-level storm ranges between 20-40 million with durations up to 1-2 years.’” Read more.

    Reblogged this on Reality Check and commented:
    There isn’t going to be any “climate changes”. This happens every 11 years. CMEs and Solar Storms certainly could happen in larger numbers but this is NORMAL.

    There is NO SUCH THING as “climate change” – at least not of a “man made” kind. The sun has a cycle (actually more than one), but the 11 year sunspot cycle is well known to everyone except for these Global Warming bozos.

    IF we get hit by a large enough CME under the right conditions we might also “flip” our north and south magnetic poles. But, will it hurt us? No one is 100% sure what it will do to GPS and so forth, but it’s very doubtful it will do anything except screw up magnetic compasses (they will flip around by 180 degrees).

    Actually, “our” scientist DO know what will happen when our poles “flip!” NOTHING!!! Very few people realize this, BUT, last year, the “poles” did “flip!” Don’t bother looking for the data, it was taken off the Internet within a couple of hours of being posted!!! I “just” happened to see it prior to it being taken down.

    As for “…By Victoria Woollaston, Daily Mail – “The sun’s magnetic field is expected to flip in the next three to four months and it could lead to changes in our climate, storms and disruption to satellites…”

    Instead of making totally unsupported comments like this, why not simply go back eleven years and see what happened the “last time” this event occurred??? I guess that would be “investigative reporting” rather than “sensationalism reporting”…huh!
