Nasa warns solar flares from 'huge space storm' will cause devastation in 2013

...Senior space agency scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013...
I saw this, feel nervous. Is it true?

I just see it and feeling nervous as well. However, many of scientific predictions on "earth collapse" never comes true, or at least not a mass scale like they predicted. I just hope this one is another one that not true.

Is it 2012 the end of the world? If so, why worry about 2013?

Is there a scientific basis about it? Fact or Fiction... if it is true, then we must enjoy the rest of our lives. lol

Media always add spices in the news given by scientists.
Our economy might get devastated if the solar flares interact with earth's magnetic filed in large scale.
Any way I think it will be fun for everyone to leave their job and watch the mesmerizing aurora in the sky from their own home if the solar storm come to earth.

Read about this sort of thing a while ago.

The 'Carrington Flare'...

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news...rringtonflare/
http://science.nasa.gov/science-news...espaceweather/

Imagine every hydro transformer in North America (or elsewhere) blowing up (literally) within 90 seconds. Since there aren't many 'spares' laying around, it would take 4 to 10 years to manufacture enough to get the hydro grid back up and running to former glory.

Scary stuff. First to suffer would be the sick and elderly. Since most drugs are heavily refined, production would just stop. Water needs to be pumped, sewage needs to be treated and without either cities would become unbearable to live in within days.

The interconnectedness of our society may very will bite us in the butt sooner than later. Not sure where I read this stat, but I remember it being said that Carrington grade flares happen at least once every century or two.

1859... We might even be overdue...

Forget 2012 / 2013 - whatever.

It's scientific fact that this DOES happen and quite frequently (relatively speaking). It's only the fact it hasn't happened again in our modern times which blinds people to the massive implications such an event would have.

NASA is right in bringing this to attention. We need to be prepared for this event whether it happens in our lifetime or not.

I know solar flares happen often but they are nothing to seriously worry about, the worst damage it would cause is an ash cloud, which I'm guessing would be similar to the recent Iceland ash cloud. If it does happen the proper steps will be taken to protect us against it, it's not like a nearby star is dying, then we would be in trouble :p

Though we often feel invincible, humans are pretty vulnerable and helpless when it comes to most things cosmic. One huge meteor strike could wipe us all out. Unlike many of the theories behind the "2012" doppelganger, scientists have studied solar flares for years. They have the potential to inflict some serious damage to our electrical systems, atmosphere and other of our support systems. It will unlikely wipe us out, but it could result in a big ouch nonetheless.

But of course it may not happen, just like the next overdue flu pandemic that hasn't happened yet. Let's hope it doesn't.

I had an odd feeling I'd posted about this before. Just found the thread...

http://www.v7n.com/forums/forum-lobb...-disaster.html

There's a few more links in that thread to follow if interested.

It's pretty strange but it says it happens every generation, so I'm not too concerned with it.
