The Imminent ‘Global Catastrophe’ No One Sees Coming

Kim Jon Un

The world has been focused on the threat from North Korea in recent weeks, concerned about the reclusive country setting off a traditional nuclear weapon or even an EMP. But there is a more persistent threat out there that we rarely think about – and there’s very little that we can do about it.

It is the sun, and, yes, it can take down the power grid with little warning.

This week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio is Arthur Bradley, a NASA engineer who is an expert on solar storms and disaster preparedness, having authored 15 books on the subject.

The last major solar storm to hit the Earth took place in 1859 – long before the power grid was put in place. If such a storm were to hit us now, Bradley says, it would cause a “global catastrophe,” crippling the grid for a year or more and causing millions of deaths.

Even worse: Bradley says we’re “past due” for such a storm.

Bradley also tells us:

  • Why the power grid essentially would be “un-repairable” and down for so long.
  • Whether the grid truly can be hardened to protect it from solar threats.
  • How Earth barely survived a solar storm just five years ago.

If you’re concerned about the future of your family and want to be prepared, then this is one show you don’t want to miss!

  1. I deal in logic:
    1 Figure out what you want in the Health Care Bill that is best for the legal citizens of the United States.
    2 Figure out how it is going to be funded.
    3 Reform the Tax Code to eliminate tax burden, which should be helpful for #2.
    4 Eliminate the ObamaCare Taxes, which should also help in solving #2.
    5 Reform how citizens are covered by their health care.
    For example: When someone is covered by their employer’s health care insurance and they develop a health condition, they are still covered.
    However, if any of the following occur, they will lose coverage and NOT be able to acquire coverage because of the Pre-Existing Condition:
    1 They lose or change employment
    2 Their spouse, who has the coverage through employment dies.
    3 They get a divorce.
    4 Because their employment forces them to move to another state, where their current health care provider does not offer insurance coverage.
    5 They or the covered person retires.
    Like Automobile Insurance, Health Care Insurance needs to be transferrable.
    When I move to another state, or lose my job, or get transferred, or get a divorce, or my spouse dies, I still have auto insurance.
    Employers who pay our health care take the money from the employees by reducing their wages. By not having to pay for health care coverage, they can offer higher wages.
    We need to put more of the money the Government and our Employers spend on a one-size-fits-all type of health coverage into the hands of the folks who are using it. That will enable us to find coverage that fits what we need and allow us to shop for the best rates.
    Open competition will force down the health rates and allow us to keep more of our money.
    We need to put in place a system with consequences that forces folks to buy coverage, otherwise they will waste their health care money and still end up on Medicade and Welfare.
    Logically, I would suggest writing a Flow Chart, like I did in Computer Science, which will allow you to sort through all of the items we need in the new Health Care Reform Bill and organize them in a logical form. Then compose the bill and leave out all of the “pork” that usually gets hidden in there.
    This is about the Republican Promise; not about how much you can get for yourself.
    If the Republicans keep screwing around and in-fighting, you can kiss your job good-bye after the next election.
    The Democrats lost, because they didn’t listen to the populace. The thought that doing the same-old-same-old was going to be good enough. We revolted then and we can do it again.
    If you want to keep the advantage in Congress, do what you promised and stop trying to appease your Liberal friends.
    If we put on a ballot for voters to approve, “Congress shall not pass any bill for themselves that would not equally be applied to the legal voters of the United States”, guess what would happen.
