I’m frustrated. Two years ago, the fact that we had narrowly missed having our whole electrical and electromagnetic world destroyed by a massive solar flare was accurately reported in just a very few places, among them Unknowncountry. I had published an ebook called Solar Flares that warned of this threat and outlined the steps necessary to prevent. NOW the media is finally picking up on this incredibly important story!
What happened to Solar Flares? Nothing, same as my book about nuclear terrorism, Critical Mass.
So we’re still just as vulnerable right now to both nuclear terrorism and solar storms before I made these efforts. I feel kind of like I’m talking to a wall. Why are so many of us so desperately passive? We wait, then when something happens, we are taken up on the dark wave of disaster and swept away.
We could harden our electrical infrastructure against solar storms, just as we could institute safeguards against nuclear terrorism.
But we don’t, and this little screed won’t change a thing any more than Superstorm did. Oh, well.
