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 canât be held culpable for all changes affecting the global environment at the moment, but it certainly doesnât 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 â huge clouds of magnetically charged particles (CMEâs) 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 QuebecÂ 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.
