Scientists Believe if Solar Storms Hit Earth, We Could Be Off the Grid For a Decade

[Editor’s Note: If you were warned you have only 12 hours before a major solar storm hits the earth that has the likelihood of disrupting our entire power grid for an indefinite amount of time, would you be ready? As outlandish as this sounds, many scientists believe we are overdue for another event similar to the 1859 Carrington Event.

Due to our total dependence on the grid, if another coronal mass ejection or EMP similar to the size of the 1859 Carrington Event occurred, it would have devastating consequences and would quickly kick off a chain of events that would prompt breakdowns in under prepared cities and urban centers.]

According to an article at Natural News, it could take years of even a decade before the power grid and some sense of normalcy can be restored. In the meantime, there is a strong likelihood that millions of people — particularly those living in urban areas — will perish within a short time after the event.

Without power to the cities, social order will quickly collapse and mayhem will ensue.

The UK’s Department of Business, Innovation and Skills has just released its Space Weather Preparedness Strategy, which outlines “the nature of the risk to the UK from severe space weather, our progress to prepare for the risk and our priorities for future work.”

The strategy for preparing for such occurrences, according to the Brits, is threefold:

The UK approach to space weather preparedness is set out in this document and is underpinned by three elements: designing mitigation into infrastructure where possible; developing the ability to provide alerts and warnings of space weather and its potential impacts; and having in place plans to respond to severe events. Preparation is needed to the national level, with the support of local capabilities to deal with the consequences. This all requires of international co-ordination.

The document points out the fact that “awareness of the risk is low” and that the public needs to be informed that when a major solar storm occurs, there will be a maximum 12-hour warning period before the harmful x-rays and radiation reach the Earth.
