Interstellar Energy Cloud may be as much to Blame for Climate Change as CO2 Emissions

For years climate change has been blamed on global warming, which has in turn been blamed on green-house gases produced from the combustion of fossil fuels. However there is another explication that perhaps can’t be held culpable for all changes affecting the global environment at the moment, but it certainly doesn’t improve the situation.

On July 14th 2010 it was officially revealed that information from the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 satellites prove that our solar system is passing through an interstellar cloud of electrical energy. According to astrophysicist Alexei Dmitriev the energy in the cloud is being absorbed by the sun, causing it to be more active and in turn give off much more energy. It is also exciting the atmospheres of the planets, and has been proven to have dramatically affected the weather here on earth and increase the likelihood of earthquakes. The cloud is vast and it is predicted that we may not leave it for another 2000-3000 years, although the worst is expected to pass in the next few years.

On March 10th 2006 NASA along with The National Academy of Science and other world renowned scientists were so worried about the impacts the cloud is having on the planet, that they issued a solar storm warning for 2012. They initially omitted the reason behind the warning.

Dmitriev is worried that the excited sun will release massive amounts of energy in huge solar storms comprising of solar flares the likes of which we have never experienced before. He predicts that something will happen within the next few years and that the results could be devastating. The worst outcome would be worldwide blackouts and electrical failure lasting months or years, due to the Carrington Effect – huge clouds of magnetically charged particles (CME’s) which upon contact with the earth cause vast electrical surges, overloading electrical systems.

On March 13th 1989 a small solar flare disrupted the Hydroelectric plant in Quebec  and plunged the entire region into darkness for 9 hours, it also melted power transformers in New Jersey. Dmitirev predicts something far larger, and on a global scale. A world without electricity for just one week would cripple economies and topple governments, one month or more would be unthinkable.

    It's rather interesting to note that the greatest warming has been observed at times/places where the Sun shines the least.Overnight low temperatures are rising faster than daytime highs. And polar temperatures are rising faster than tropical temperatures.Furthermore, the upper atmosphere (stratosphere) has been *cooling* even as the lower troposphere has been warming.How does all this square with "The Sun did it" hypothesis? :D

    A good friend works in DC with FEMA. This is actually one of their more serious concerns.

    Do you have any reliable references on this?

    I've been doing some rounds on Google now.

    While I can't find any official information from NASA, other news outlets reports that 2013 will be a peak solar storm year due to natural sun cycles. This may prove disruptive for quite some of our technology, but most likely no significant impact on the climate.

    A search for the named Russian astrophysics eventually pointed me towards the "photon belt" - which seems to be utterly non-sense ref wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photon_belt

    A new NASA study underscores the fact that greenhouse gases generated by human activity -- not changes in solar activity -- are the primary force driving global warming.

    The US gov are the ones claiming green house gases are causing global warming to promote green jobs and technology. So guess where Nasa gets its funding from ?? Yes thats right the US gov, so its no wonder NASA would determine this, and recently NASA's funding just got cuts and NASA NEEDS MORE FUNDING !!!!!!!!!!!

    One has to ask some serious questions, especially based on the above comment by Ned:
    Why has the US Government (and other countries) been engaged in a serious underground drilling and building of underground cities for over 40 years? Why is Denver Airport a hub and access point to these underground cities which are connected by a rail system? Why does the Denver Airport have more fuel capacity than any airport in the US-is it because of the massive flights which will be incoming and outgoing bringing government people and VIPs (the elite) to these underground cities? Why do certain people have special passports to these underground cities? Why is there a seed depository/vault in Scandinavia? The US Government has been silent about this - why? Is it because signaling a problem would trigger mass movement of the population throughout the US which the government does not want? Will the government ever tell us-my hypothesis is it will, a few hours to a few minutes before the event from their underground cities telling us it is best for you to remain where you're at "for your safety".
    Something is going on and no one is telling us. FEMA knows-probably outlined in a Top Secret emergency plan which will not include Joe Sixpack and Jane. Joe Sixpack and Jane will have to fend for themselves. If you know enough of this (plus a little more) then you have prepared like me.
