White House Prepares for Solar Flares and Other Space Weather Events

Luke 21:25,26 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

The U.S. Government has released its National Space Weather Strategy showing a multiagency plan that details how the U.S. will prepare for and deal with a massive EMP from Space Weather.  

An EMP or geomagnetic solar storm event has long been talked about in the media but steps are being taken now to show how serious this is to the government.

The six-step plan requires government agencies, schools, the media, the insurance industry, nonprofits, and more to work together.

“This is a real and present danger,” the White House’s assistant director for space weather told the Houston Post.   Back in 1859, a huge solar storm did impact Earth and caused some sparking telegraph lines. If a geomagnetic storm as strong as that one were to strike today it would likely cause $600 billion to $2.6 trillion worth of damage in the United States alone, according to a recent study.

NASA says that we had a scary near miss when we were nearly hit by two plasma clouds in 2012.  “If it had been hit, we would still be picking up the pieces,” one physicist says.

According to news reports, the White House’s new plan calls for the U.S. to get better at predicting space weather, shore up our infrastructure against EMPs and more. These plans, may truly be needed: The Post quotes NASA as stating there’s a 12% chance of a giant solar flare in the next 10 years.

In a  report released by the United Kingdom’s Department of Business Innovation and Skills said that the Earth can indeed experience a massive solar storm, with mankind having only 12 hours to prepare for such a potentially disastrous event.

  1. Yeah I’ve heard about those EMP attacks weather in from the enemy on the earth or from solar storms, I pray that God’s hand of protection is still honest to a certain degree to keep us from such a devastation is not going out every power grid from the north east to the west and all in the middle, we need to repent as a nation, I encourage would like to get a bunch of religious leaders together such as jim bakker Jonathan Cahn and whoever they feel that would add help in such a manner? To have a 4 million people Christians March to Washington DC and demand the Supreme Court to reverse decision of Roe vs Wade, and demand also the reversal of same-sex marriages and make it back to the way it was between a man and a woman, and a great player in the Ten Commandments back into the schools! And that we would increase our relationship with Israel not has it been in the last 10 years! I encourage strongly that of 4 million Christians March to Washington DC to the capital in the White House and demand in the name of the God of the Constitution end of our FAITH to insist that the Supreme Court reverse every bad decision I’ve ever made that is great the Spirit of God and it has put our country in such jeopardy, I believe this will bring forth revival in the United States of America and the God of grace and mercy look down from heaven and know that the United States of America has attempted to repent to insist on their leaders to correct the wrongs and make them right again! Sincerely was great on this expectation, Evangelist Reverend William Skauge.
