Upcoming Solar Magnetic Field Shift Could Take Out Power Grid

sun polar shift

The Sun’s magnetic field is shifting as it usually does during the peak of its 11-year cycle, but this time some odd changes are occurring. The North Pole is changing far more quickly than the South Pole, which is rushing to catch up. Until the lower pole gets back in sync, we will essentially have two South Poles on Earth.

The magnetic field of the Sun spans throughout the entire solar system, and is approximately four months from completing its cycle flip, according to NASA and NOAA scientists. The Wilcox Solar Observatory at Stanford University is just one of a handful of facilities around the globe that routinely monitor the polar magnetic fields of the Sun.

“It looks like we’re no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal,” said observatory director and physicist Todd Hoeksema. “This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system.”

Another Stanford physicist, Phil Scherrer, said, “The sun’s polar magnetic fields weaken, go to zero and then emerge again with the opposite polarity. This is a regular part of the solar cycle. The sun’s north pole has already changed sign. Soon, however, both poles will be reversed, and the second half of solar max will be underway.”

Harness the power of the sun when the power goes out…

How could it affect Earth? A NASA release said the transition could “stir up stormy space weather” – and that could mean major solar storms. An Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME) could take out the power grid and completely derail life as we know it. As previously reported by Off The Grid News, the civil unrest which would occur shortly after the lights go out will likely claim a multitude of lives and cause the hording of food and weapons. A massive solar flare would not only render power grid transformers inoperable, but also cause fires that will grow unchecked if fire engines cannot roll. Vehicles manufactured after the early 1950s possess intricate electrical wiring and computerized parts which could be fried by the electromagnetic activity. A Faraday cage or other attempts to ground electrical components may save some items; but don’t count on being able to call 911 to get help.

sun polarity, sun polarity shiftThe portion of the sun’s magnetic field which is preparing to shift is typically called the “current sheet” by scientists. The sheet is the surface which sticks out from the Sun’s equator region and carries a small electric current. The average amperage flow from the Sun’s equator is approximately 10,000 kilometers thick and billions of kilometers wide. When the magnetic field starts to flip, the current sheet becomes wavy. The planet Earth will weave in and out of the current sheet during its orbit around the sun.

While scientists and physicists readily agree that the Sun’s magnetic field shift will have an impact on Earth, they remain uncertain about the severity of the effect. In the coming months, the planet could become more cloudy or overall climate could fluctuate, or a strong solar flare could emerge and drastically impact our lives – if the CME is Earth-directed.

How concerned are you about the Sun’s magnetic field polarity shift and possibility of a downed power grid?

  1. It’s not so much the EMP/ solar flare people should be afraid of. I welcome it to knock society back to some sort of normalcy. But what needs to be feared in the hundreds of nuclear reactors that will eventually melt down and cause armegadon because there will be no electricity o pump the water to cool the cores ,. You cannot transport fuel to run the generators …soon it will catch up. This is where our attention needs to be focused..

    • I agree. This came up in a conversation while back. The CME/EMP is the trigger.
      The failure of many other things is the real problem. Dams will still run but will they be able to put out power?
      All the Nuclear reactor are computerized (is there a manual way to cool the rods).

      As every new event is triggered the population will go into deeper unrest and become more aggressive. So keep in mind that if TSHTF there will be levels of problems. As time goes on it will get worse after every event.
      So as Preppers you have to continue to prep because we don’t know how long it will be before triggers and events stop happening due to a CME/EMP and start to stabilize. Then once events stop happening how long is the road back if there is one.

  2. There is no road back. The only road is to Medieval times with the harvesting of remaining materials into usable tools. This is the ultimate judgement from God, and we surely deserve it. One thing is certain, it will go tribal and your tribe’s strength and veracity will determine if you live or die.

    I don’t know if a single black American will survive because of their tribe’s social-self destruction. There won’t be too many whites that survive that will trust anyone much less what they consider just another Travon Martin….thank the media for that.

    It will be so bad that the dead will be the fortunate ones. 90% mortality rate in the first 90 days is expected and another 90% of the remaining the next 90 days. If you’re left you have to be in a very coordinated community that is built to weather the storm and to survive the marauders and murderers that will be grouped and act as lone wolves. It will be worse than the dark ages. It will be the 66th book of the bible on steroids. God help the survivors.

    • I think this reply is quite racist.
      I have seen people of all colors that are dirt bags of a variety and feed on there own. To put a color on it shows who is racist. I train with people of all races so I have see n the good in all and the bad in others.
      Every person stands on there own and there deeds determine who they are regardless of color.
      Me and my wing man are of different race but we trust no one more then each other.

      • Well Mexican Joe, perhaps you’ll be in the 10% of the 10% that survives. I don’t really care if you think it is racist. There is nothing wrong with pointing out racist issues if they shed light on an issue. If you read it again, you will see that I stated “I don’t know….” My observations on race, culture etc. are just that…an observation. And to me they are accurate. They may not be accurate in your neck of the woods.

        So yes, my reply was quite racist. An observation on what is happening in my community and Parish. If you choose to be a slave to political correctness and check your brain at the door, then live with the consequences. If you think the Carrington Effect is going to bring out the best in people, then again, live with your assertions. Not all tribes are going to act, interact, and survive the same.

        Regardless the color of your ‘wingman.’ The fact that your best friend is a different race or culture than you has no bearing on the fact that tribes will act differently and when the smoke clears, very few will be left standing, much less those that are already neck deep in racist demagoguery and the blame game.

        Katrina taught me all I need to know about tribes. You better brush up on it. For you and your ‘wingman’s’ sake.

        • I agree it is your opinion and you have yours as I have mine. I respect your right to view yours.

          I also agree that it will not bring out the best and probably the worst even from the best people. Hard times make for hard choices.

          Ya we are versed and even people who may me good may be told to walk on. We understand that we can not house, feed and care for the world.

          None of that is based on race.

          I am glad that we can agree to each have an opinion and just comment on them.

          • My comments are based on observation. Not what I would wish. For example: Look at the black on black crime in Chicago. It is horrendous. Now imagine it after three days with no running water. Imagine it with no police, no civil authorities, no one coming to help. You will be shot dead for a bottle of water.

            This is what I am saying. Country folk may be able to band together, but only if they are doing so already. You don’t work things out before hand. You only activate your plans afterwards.

            I worked all night tonight on a business proposal for a black friend of mine who is currently in NYC. Love the guy. If he is in NYC when this happens, he’s a goner. Only rural areas will have a chance, and only those that are tight knit and can work together. None of that applies to urban areas and especially the black community. It is self destructing and seemingly culturally suicidal.

            You may not believe in profiling now, but you do it regardless of what you feel. You can’t turn off using your judgement. This is the big misconception…that using judgment is somehow passing judgment. One is using the God given gift of discernment, the other is reserved for Heaven.

            Again. Noting issues regarding race, is not in itself a bias or pejorative. It is just an observation based on life experiences. Much as I’d like to believe otherwise, I stand well clear of Pit Bulls. The Carrington Effect is going to make the entire USA like the Superdome after Katrina accept no help will be forthcoming.

            God bless.

      • Very nicely said, and so true.

        Previous poster did make one valid point though, and that is to thank the media. If you are as old as I am you will remember a song from the 80s about “Give Us Dirty Laundry”? Media and Lefties love racial dirty laundry, and strive to keep racism alive. For the media, it is great for ratings, for progressives and others on the left it is about divide and conquer. Also why the libtards foster economic stratification on color lines, to divide and to make as many families perpetually dependent as possible.

  3. Really…the operative word is “could” and the true answer is probably not. This has happened before, will happen again, and grid will be fine. This is bad and alarmist reporting at best. Shame on you Off the Grid!

    • I think preparedness for anything is a good thing. You have the following just in case but rarely if ever use:
      Medical Insurance, Life insurance, Home owners insurance, car insurance, a first aid kit, a spare tire, food in your pantry when you can go get it daily. So this just shows that we prepare for just in case.
      NASA watches for near earth objects “just in case”.
      So putting your head in the sand and saying probably not has made a lot of babies that were “Not Probable”.
      Mr. Murphy stops by the minute your back up is not there (like a spare tire).
      The military has trained for years for an invasion that never happened (just in case).
      So don’t poo on people wanting to be prepared and we wont Poo on your head in the sand.

    • This is not alarmist in the least. The Carrington Effect is long overdue.

      You should educate yourself before you discount the effects of such an event that is bound to return.

      Don’t cry ‘alarmist’ to those that are trying to point out the very dangerous and possibly culture killing effects of this very natural phenomenon. It could happen the second I hit ‘send.’

      The only alarmist issue raised by this article is how many discount the very real danger we are in.

    • There has not been a really big CME pointed at directly at the earth since the grid was established. It has NOT happened before in the current context, but it will happen. A Carington event sized solar storm Pointed directly at the earth would not result in the grid being “fine”. Ask the folks in Alberta what a little tiny solar storm did to their grid and then extrapolate your way towards an X-flare. If it isn’t the sun, it could easily be some of Obama’s Middle Eastern buddies.

      CME and EMP are undoubtedly the scariest of the prepper scenarios, and unlike the Zombie Apocalypse, highly probable within our life time.
