The fat is that we have always had a risk of being hit by a super solar storm that could knock out our power grid and communications and cost out economy a trillion dollars.
Solar flares are very directional. Think our sun not only as have 360 degrees around it's equator but also another 360 degrees around it's north and south poles. The chance of our Earth getting a direct hit from any particular solar flares is probably one in a thousand.
But not all solar flares are super solar flares so now it becomes about one in million ....... which means about once every hundred years or so.
The fact is most solar flares are GOOD in that they recharge our Van Allen radiation Belt which presently is the weakest ever recorded with about forty years of data. This means more Cosmic Radiation hitting the surface of Earth (not good). It also means our astronauts are getting zapped more often.
Soooo, how can you tell when a Super Solar Storm is heading our way? Well, they know about 36 hours in advance and if it looks like it will be a direct hit from a Super Solar Flare the first thing they will do is get our astronauts in the space station back to Earth so they will to get fried.
So, if you hear our astronauts are rocketing back to Earth, then you can start to worry! Until then, don't be a Chicken Little!!!
Are You Prepared For What The Wall Street Journal Calls "The Largest Natural-Disaster Scenario The Nation Could Face"?
Did you know that a solar storm in 1921 knocked the entire national telegraph system completely offline?
Or that a relatively minor solar storm in 1989 caused an enormous blackout in Quebec?
Scary stuff. And here's more bad news...
Experts are predicting that solar storm eruptions will get really bad in 2013 and many are warning that our electric grid is extremely vulnerable.
Yes, a solar storm could knock your lights out ANY TIME in the next few months.
In fact, a former power engineer recently predicted in the Wall Street Journal that we could soon face blackouts lasting weeks or months, leaving major cities temporarily uninhabitable.
FOXNews and The Wall Street Journal warn that our electrical grid is dangerously vulnerable to approaching solar storms and widespread blackouts are likely.
Watch this video for an odd "trick" to protect your home and family.
No, if you had read it, I DID NOT SAY Fox News said anything. That is an advertisement that said that! And there are loony-lefty sources also say that. The difference is their motive for scaring people.<quoted text>

Yes, very dependable news vehicles, those two, sharing the same owner, garbage-spewing NY Post, FoxNews.com and the Wall Street Journal's Rupert Murdoch with the famously-"suicided" scandal-plagued News of the World and its erstwhile replacement in smut, The Sun of London.
I know, I know, attacking the messenger - hmmm, how about you constantly attacking the George Soros messenger, even when the guy's not even close, whereas on this one, it's got Murdoch's imprints all over it.
RINO's want to scare people so the can sell them stuff (and make MONEY doing so) while the Libtards was to push their Global Warming agenda.
