Alerting the world to the mysteries and dangers of Coronal Mass Ejections




A large CME, preceded by ten smaller CMEs, came into contact with our atmosphere 46 minutes ago. The fullness of its effects is not yet known, but we expect considerable damage to many areas, especially Polar Regions which are less protected by the magnetosphere (the Earth’s electromagnetic shield).

The effects of the cascading CMEs over the last few days are well known now. However, lesser known is that with each CME, the magnetosphere is being worn down (the best way we can explain it). It appears that this continual diminishment is progressive, allowing greater amounts of solar radiation to break through our ionosphere from each subsequent solar storm. We expect a tripling or quadrupling of the sun’s radiation worldwide over the next few days or weeks. The new normal now appears to be multiple hourly coronal mass eruptions, which will further disrupt the magnetosphere. Besides the ensuing deleterious effects to our bodies (e.g. cellular degeneration and malignancies such as carcinoma), the additional solar radiation will heat up our planet, causing the following: polar icecap melting and ensuing flooding of all coastal lands; widespread fires; and terrestrial reduction of plant and animal life, and therefore a world-wide decline of food sources.

The news we bring is far worse. Our data indicates a colossal coronal mass ejection has erupted and we estimate the bulk of plasma and ensuing electromagnetic waves will hit Earth within hours.

This solar storm is the one we all feared and we have tried to warn everyone about.

Unfortunately, we cannot do much to help you. Even if we had recommended that you stock up on supplies, short of a warehouse full of food, it will not be enough. This coming CME will destroy all electrical power, taking down all utilities, infrastructure, and communications. We expect all electronics, other than the most hardened, to be destroyed by the ensuing inductive electromagnetic waves. Across the entire planet, all computers and the Internet will be gone by tomorrow.

We will continue to monitor this situation and maintain our site ( However, when what we are calling The Event occurs, there will be no way to connect to our systems, which we know will eventually go down like all others.

Our sincere hope is that some of you reading this, especially those who have already prepared for this, will survive. We pray for you our readers, for our country, and for humanity.

We are sending you this warning because we are now 90% sure that a Carrington-sized event will occur in the next 36 to 60 hours.

At least one CME (and maybe more) is expected to reach Earth within that time.

We strongly recommend that you plan on many weeks or months without power or services. Stock up your food and water. If you are in the city and you can make it to a more rural area, we recommend you leave now. Do not wait. You no longer have time.

Stay indoors when the sun is highest in the sky, as you will be subject to anywhere from 500% to 2000% the normal radiation level that you would receive on a normal day.

All of these and other recommendations are listed in our free downloadable eBook, The Solar Apocalypse Survival Guide.

We will continue to transmit bulletins as long as we are able.

If you read the headlines the last few months, you cannot help but be a little worried.

Major solar storm warning over huge new sunspot group

Earth is being blasted by solar flares, largest active region since 1990

Fear as Earth almost destroyed completely by massive solar flare

But does this mean we are headed towards a solar apocalypse or end-of-the-world scenario like the one we’ve been warning about? Yes, I’m afraid it does.

Please let my words sink in for a minute and then consider this. If we simply have an event that mimics the size and scope of the Carrington Event, that occurred 150 years ago, 50% of us, the world’s tenants, will have no power and water to our homes for maybe months or years (the other 50% doesn’t have these already); most every automobile and airplane will be non-functional; many of our smart devices and electronics will be made inert; and much of our storehouses of data (i.e. banking, internet, etc.) will be gone.

Imagine what life would be like?

Well it could get worse than this. Solar Storms have been ravaging our upper atmosphere since the sun emitted radiation, but our earth has been protecting us with a magnetic shield since before man took his first steps. What if that magnetic shield were damaged or were to deteriorate as some scientists and at least one sci-fi author has posited? It could mean the end of us all.

I’m not writing this as a Halloween scare tactic, but to have you consider the tenuous footing we are all on right now. We don’t have to go as far as the scenario chronicled in DESOLATION; just consider the replication of an event that has already happened. What can we do? Plenty!

First, contact your federal government officials and have them commit to spending on shielding the grid. There are two bills stalled in Congress that address some of our grid’s deficiencies. A few $ billion is all it will take to add enough protection to insure that the down time, in the event of another Carrington Event, is days or weeks and not months or years.

Next, prepare for the worst. There are many actions you can take for your family to prepare for the worst case, even if it isn’t that bad. Just consider, could you survive without any utilities (power, water, phone, internet) for weeks? If not, then start now to prepare to do so. Start immediately to store up three or four weeks of food and water. You can get more tips on preparing by downloading our free Solar Apocalypse Survival Guide.

I’m asked often, when will this happen? Unfortunately, there is no way to know this. We will continue to study the data and report back to you. But, until that day when we will announce, the next Carrington Event is coming, prepare for the worst. It is coming.
