What is happening to the sun?

A grand solar minimum due to cancellation of waves on the sun which results in no sunspots.

This causes the magnetosphere of the earth to massively reduce.

the magnetosphere protects the planet from cosmic rays and solar winds.

We have what would normally magnitude 2 storm coming in right now (sept 12/13/14th)

There is an odd spot on the sun right now that is unlike typical sunspots.

As for the global panic? I assume it's because scientists are starting to discover that the sun is more relevant than CO2 in climate change...

I recommend that you go buy a bunch of extra food and some seeds to plant.

I've been saying this for months, as a ham radio geek one of the first things we learn is the interaction between the ionosphere and solar cycles. It doesn't just bounce rf radiation.

are PC hard drives effected? mine ran into troubles for weeks, lots of sudden crashes, but now those issues have gone away

My dad got obsessed with the sun the past few years. The sky in general, I guess.

He has been trying to speak with some specialists/scientists about sunspots for months now. He'll call up facilities and try to get a hold of people from time to time. I don't think he's been sucessful yet. I remember him wanting to point out patterns of the sun and patterns of earth's tempurature and ask a professional about it.

we are entering a grand solar minimum and a few other cycles are lining up for cold weather and crop losses.

lol why would magnetosphere massively reduce because of less solar activity or no sunspots

[–] Thisismyvoatusername 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

The magnetosphere is a result of the Earth’s magnetic field interacting with solar activity. So it grows when there is more activity and shrinks when there is less. At least, I think that is how it works. How that then interacts with cosmic rays (in terms of being more or less protective), I don’t really know. Also, I’m pretty sure the solar activity is solar winds, so I’m not quite sure of the exact point he was making.

[–] bluefascist 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

it's a good question. The sunspot activity interacts with the earths magnetic field. But really, when you start asking that kind of question it really depends on what your background is, otherwise we end up like the Insane Clown Posse asking how magnets work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZjNJy9RJks

Sunspots as far as I know are made by the magnetosphere of the sun.

The amount of constant solar wind coming off the sun is massive.

My guess would be that when the sun's magnetosphere starts acting weird, whatever effect it had in keeping bad solar storms from hitting earth is reduced, as well as whatever effects the sun's magnetosphere combines with earth's.

The best theory I've seen so far for the NM problem is a mercury spill,apparently they used 10 tons building that thing. It seems to be the most likely answer - but one never knows.

So why close the Post Office too?

[–] senpaithatignoresyou 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

That would make sense, as mercury is considered ultra toxic and they guberment loves to over react to that sort of thing.

Personally i am hoping for a solar Apocalypse to cull the brown people a bit.

Something like this seems most likely.

The jews did 911 and now they're trying to step it up on 912. You wont fool me twice you filthy kikes.

I agree something is up. Just last night I saw a news piece on the local fake news channels about being able to see the northern lights in the lower 48. I'll have to check out secure team 10, and see if Tyler has posted anything on it.

For those interested in the latest solar activity, check out suspicious observers on you tube.

People keep talking about solar flares, etc as the reason. The real threat would be not flares but CMEs (coronal mass ejections). They are more common during high sun spot activity but can also occur under low sun spot periods. We have been tracking and researching CMEs for decades but predicting them is about as easy as predicting tornadoes. We had two satellites in the 1970s for this purpose and NASA launched STEREO in 2006, which is a more advance CME research satellite. CMEs are so fast, our first warning defense is Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite and that still only gives about 15 minutes up to an hour warning. CMEs can travel from the sun to earth in about 15 hours or sometimes they take days. CMEs (depending on size) can/will increase northern light activity to the point where they can be seen in the lower 48. And yes, they will also fuck with anything electronic. The largest CME recorded was the Carrington CME in 1859, it traveled from the sun to the earth in just a little over 17 hrs. It knocked out all telegraphs in North America and Europe, the Auroras were seen as far south as the Caribbean and were so bright it turned night into day. A Carrington CME today would cost us in the trillions due to the damages it would cause. According to historical data, it would seem we are overdue for another large one, but, since CMEs are unpredictable and when they do occur, we have little warning, so I can't see them shutting down an observatory for that reason. Maybe there are others on here more knowledgeable on the subject.

These two scriptures seem relevant to me.

Luke 21:25 "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;"

Joel 2:31 "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come."

This may reference the solar eclipse, and the blood moon (lunar eclipse) we experienced recently. The Luke scripture seems to directly reference what is happening right now.
