Apparently, the two experts misspoke in what was reported by the Daily Mail, which I linked to. Space Weather said this on their front page about a month ago:
SPACE WEATHER FACT CHECK: Many readers are asking about a report in the Washington Examiner, which states that a Carrington-class solar storm narrowly missed Earth two weeks ago. There was no Carrington-class solar storm two weeks ago. On the contrary, solar activity was low throughout the month of July. The report is erroneous. The possibility of such a storm is, however, worth thinking about: A modern Carrington event would cause significant damage to our high-tech society. http://spaceweather.com/ http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/07/13/when-space-weather-attacks/ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2382527/A-near-miss-Earth-Devastating-electromagnetic-pulses-knocked-power-cars-phones-occured-weeks-ago.html http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/08/02/about-that-almost-carrington-event-two-weeks-ago http://washingtonexaminer.com/massive-solar-flare-narrowly-misses-earth-emp-disaster-barely-avoided/article/2533727
This is very strange. How could these experts be so wrong?
At least they were sounding the alarm. The threat is very real, which is why I said what I wrote in my post.
We are LIVING ON THE EDGE. We did have a recent near miss (see link below). And Joel Skousen believes, and prophecies back up that we’re being set up for an invasion by Russia and China, when China gets their navy fully operational (about 7 years from now). Skousen believes they will start the attack with EMP weapons that will take out all of our power for months, followed by strategically placed nukes.
Anchorage Daily News: Biggest solar storm in years strikes Earth without incident — “This time, Earth got dealt a good card” — We’re playing roulette with our power grid thanks to Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski [This one was real!]
Matt Stein: 400 Chernobyls, Solar Flares, EMP & Nuclear Armageddon — If we see the most incredible northern lights display of our lives and the grid isn’t protected for just the price of one stealth bomber!
[Anchorage Daily News opinion] Alaska’s Senators LISA MURKOWSKI and MARK BEGICH are TRAITORS: Every U.S. senator must subscribe to an oath that states, “I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States …” Sens. Begich and Murkowski have BROKEN THIS OATH. I call on them to repudiate their votes on Senate Bill 1867, the Defense Authorization Bill; they have compromised the freedoms our Constitution guarantees.
Joel Skousen reviews EMP attack scenario book, “When the Lights Went Out” by Jack Monnett: A solid wake up call for those who continue to think America is not at risk — It would probably take about 6 nuclear explosions spaced carefully over the nation
EMP Defense Council Inaugurated to Prepare the U.S. for a Nuclear EMP Strike or a Solar Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) “which have a high probability of occurring within the next 2-5 years” and would take out most of the electrical grid, medical devices, computer systems, the internet, all vehicles, consumer electronics, home appliances, satellites, airborne planes, etc.
[2012?] Likelihood of a SOLAR FLARE taking out our entire power grid — NO ELECTRICITY; NO WATER; NO HEAT for MANY MONTHS! ALASKA would be especially vulnerable. “If people in a community JOIN TOGETHER…”
