Coronal Mass Ejection Almost Destroyed Civilization in 2012

By  

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.

If you want to know more about CMJs and the very real threat they pose to our modern world, check out my Amazon Kindle book,

"Saving the World from Asteroids and Planning for Coronal Mass Ejection threats.: What isn't being done to protect us from impacts and the power grids from ... (Collected Works: John McCormick Book 3) [Kindle Edition]"

Amazon

This costs the enormous price of $0.99 U.S.$ but is even free for many Kindle users - those who belong to Amazon Prime.
