Coronal Mass Ejection Almost Destroyed Civilization in 2012
By John McCormick
Coronal mass ejections, something few people know about - including emergency management workers, is one of the major threats to the world as we know it.
These periodic eruptions of highly charged particles from the sun travel in a focused beam out into space and if they intersect the earth, as they do every few dozen decades, the charge they impart into any electrical wires will burn out most electronic systems, transformers, and generators.
Although the event was nearly two years ago, it is such an incredibly dangerous event that the government concealed the threat until just the past day.
The electromagnetic pulse created by these coronal mass ejections cause the same sort of electrical surges or electromagnetic pulse damage to electronics, even cars, and power grids, which the neutron bomb was designed to cause in war.
