US Government Prepares For 'Space Weather Event' As NASA Warns "Solar Minimum Is Coming"


A new report and video out from NASA about the upcoming ‘solar minimum’ has been published. The report titled ‘Solar Minimum is Coming’ outlines every 11-years, the sun oscillates from a solar minimum to a maximum. Today, the sun is called “solar minimum,” says Dean Pesnell of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. “And it’s a regular part of the sunspot cycle”. The sun is heading towards a solar minimum where the sunspot count will be relatively low.

The report goes on to say, “while intense activity such as sunspots and solar flares subside during solar minimum, that doesn’t mean the sun becomes dull. Solar activity simply changes form”. During a solar minimum, we can expect more space weather events called coronal holes.

According to the report, coronal holes are vast regions of the sun’s atmosphere where the sun’s magnetic field opens up and allows streams of solar particles to escape the sun as fast solar wind.

Pesnell says “We see these holes throughout the solar cycle, but during solar minimums, they can last for a long time – six months or more”. Solar particles from coronal holes are then ejected towards earth’s magnetic field causing space weather events.

Space weather refers to the environmental conditions in Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere and thermosphere due to the Sun and the solar wind that can influence the functioning and reliability of spaceborne and ground-based systems and services or endanger property or human health.

Meanwhile, The White House in October 2016 quietly passed through an Executive Order— “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events”. 

Here is snippet of section 1 of the executive order:   

Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

Back in April 2017, we wrote an article titled ‘Yesterday’s Broad Power Outage Likely Caused By Geomagnetic Storm‘. While everyone thought terrorism was to blame, we correctly pointed out that large power failures in major US cities was due to an intense geomagnetic storm registering 8-10 on K-Planetary Index.

Conclusion: Our fragile nation is not adequately prepared for space weather events as highlighted in the recent Exec Order.

Frankly, this should of been done years ago, but it appears that our nation will soon deal with the consequences such as April 2017 power failures in major US-cities. Couple the solar minimum period with The Fourth Turning in the west, and we’re staring at the perfect cocktail for self-destruction of an empire. Perhaps, the downfall of America is not some external threat that the mainstream media makes you believe, but in actuality, it’s an implosion from with-in. It’s happened to the greatest empires that have attempted to rule our planet, why not now? 

Don’t believe me? Here are various minimums verse the rise and fall of Chinese Dynasties

Alberto Gorez, the Thermodynamics expert, and noted S. American Global Cooling Climatologist has been warning the world of the approaching Maunder Minimum, and accompanying Ice Age for over two decades.....But the jew run media has ignored him, in order to further fleece the Goyim and Schvartzes.

In order to further fleece the Goyim and Schvartzes.

Why? They have got the printing press.I am dumfounded that this simple fact is so difficult to grasp.The only explanation must be a deflection. You and your useful idiots keep burbling on about how the "Jews" are trying to fleece the population in order to deflect attention away from the real criminals.Of cause the Jews are trying to fleece the Goyim et al, in the same way that an ice cream vendor is fleecing little kids. That is what Capitalism is all about, isn't it?

You're on my wavelength now, partner. But not in the way you think.If you had written Yes, they got the printing press but it can't print earth surface on demand ...NOW. I would have given you ten out of ten.The numbers support my prognosis that we will be very motivated to print land, and soon .Its the exponential function. Nothing beats the exceptionalism function but infinity. We've got to get to infinity. And infinity is not to be found on the 2d surface of a planet.

Still think NIBIRU is a myth? How about the brown dwarf? The year 2017  is going to be full of surprises! We are just WARMING UP TO THE MAIN EVENT scheduled to occur during SEP'17-Oct'17 time frame. Stay tuned.Remember, we can't eat iPhones! So be sure to stock up on some food. Agriculture commodities had a real moon shot this week. I expect that WHEAT is pricing in dry hot weather that will reduce crop yields.

I saw that on YouPorn - I'm still not over itEdit : in the old, more polite days of zerohedge, someone would very kindly provide a link to the relevant footage. Frankly, I'm not going anywhere near it, bit if anyone wants to volunteer....Explaining to the wife as to why our search history contains "African dwarf masturbation porn" is a conversation that, frankly, I don't want to have.

Perhaps that is because the only optics capable of seeing it are carefully guarded. Did not the New York and Washington newspapers report on it in the early eighties? Pioneer and Voyager were moved by it. IRAS found it. The Vatican is looking at it in IR with its "Lucifer" observatory. Once the certainties were affirmed, all reporting on it ceased. NASA stopped talking. Naval Observatory clammed up. It is no coincidence.

knucks, given how the MBAs and the finance guys'n'galz have "optimized" the electrical grid for financial return during normal situations without "unexpected" "jump conditions" this is a move in the correct direction.And Weekend-Tylerz--please, your headline that the "US .gov prepares ..."Actually that means that someone in the .gov and is actually thinking about this shit.  This is bigly better than NASA thinking about Islamic-outreach.don't cha' know.- Ned{the lead time for a turbine-generator machine, for a main transformer, for a substation, for the "optimized" big thangs that are providing electricity to most of all y'all's computers even as we view--well ... it is in the three digits of days}

This is true because everything is optimized for the constant. Not for the 6-sigma event which Tyler(s) often talk about when those events happen, and they will, there is alot of Risk going to be exposed. I work in the corporate world and know exactly how this happens. Example: Procurement people pound on vendors sales people to lower their pricing. Vendors sales people go back to management and say they are going to lose sales if they don't lower price. Price is lowered and to keep margins all parts of the business are cut. Inventory, distribution, production, procurement (ie, the company does the same thing to its vendors that is being done to it), etc. Finally, someone folds (either financially or some other 6-sigma event catches them) and leaves a gap in the market....a gap that can't be filled because there is noone to fill it. Then the sales people have to call the procurement people from the buying firm and tell them their is no product available and they wil be cut-off or allocated. Then the shit hits the fan...CEOs call CEOs and fuzz and cuss. People all over the organization lose their jobs....How do I know....I was just privy to this with an ingredient and major, major, major company who did just was ugly. Lots of people asked how and why it happened. Being the odd man out, I simply stated price and risk evaluation. The procurement folks who pushed a lower price did not properly vet the risk associated with losing supply over the lower price. This is the same for ALL major corporations....they do not properly vet RISK and what it can do to their organization.

NASA means "to deceive utterly or greatly" in Hebrew.  Strong's Hebrew Concordance 5377.  One day the peasants will light their torches and go after these lying scum.  Only children who believe in the tooth fairy believe NASA went to the moon or has a Fake Station flying in orbit at 17,000 mph, high enough and fast enough to melt any known material.  All BS paid for by the tax payers.
