Scary Pole Flip Could Mean EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse) Blast!

First, you should see my first post on EMPs if you are unfamiliar with the basic concept and science.

With that in mind, F. Michael Maloof is at it again with the article, “Sun’s Magnetic Field Flip Raises EMP Threat.” One need go no further than the second paragraph for his idea and third paragraph for his warning:

The sun is about to flip its magnetic field, at the peak of its 11-year solar cycle or at the half-way point of what scientists call a solar maximum – when the star is at its most violent in terms of solar flares and the Earth is most vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse.

That’s the surge of sun energy that scientists say could in an instant return the developed world to an agrarian society, essentially without any electronics, and leave millions dead.

As I said in my first post on the subject, this is, for the most part, nonsense. Yes, an EMP could be thrown off from the Sun and it could encounter Earth, but the real threat is actually very minimal. Consider as evidence that in the last 150 years, it hasn’t happened (we don’t have data really going back further). Okay, you can point to the 1859 Carrington Event, or the 1989 event in Canada, and both of these were during solar max.

But, chances are small we’d have something of that level, and even MUCH smaller that we’d actually have something big enough to do what Maloof is suggesting. In fact, it was in the early 2000s that we had some of the largest solar flares on record, and yet there were no power grid issues.

That doesn’t stop Maloof from telling half-truths, like this one: “Indeed, solar flare activity on the sun recently has increased as sun spots begin to shift and are aligned on a direct path toward Earth.”

Sounds scary, right? Like they’re doing this now and it’s never happened before and OMG we’re gonna die (the very next two sentences are: “The solar flares create an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, effect that can wipe out electrical grids and communications systems and fry electronics. Some of these solar flares can be more than 20 times the size of the Earth.”).

But, this is what happens during every sunspot cycle, made visual by the Butterfly Diagram that shows year on the horizontal axis and where the sunspots are on the sun (latitude-wise) on the vertical axis. Yes, during solar max, more sunspots are near the sun’s equator.

The rest of the article is more about trying to scare you and has ads for his book on EMPs. It was only posted 6 hours ago so has a mere five comments, none of which are particularly interesting or noteworthy.

    I was considering how this event of the sun’s flare produced by the magnetic field flipping could be that electro magnetic pulse sweep (EMP) which will come traveling with a ‘dark rift’ …. that same pulse sweep (EMP) which scripture metaphorically refer to as the Harvest Sickle … that same solar flare initiating the same pulse sweep (EMP) which is to divide the wheat for the chaff ….

    I’ve seen such a sun’s flare AKA dark rift AKA pulse sweep (EMP) AKA Harvest sickle …  as the separating of people choosing a Positive neuron state of consciousness, from those choosing to remain of a negative neuron state of consciousness … separating of Positive Love energy from negative hate and prejudice energy … separating war makers from peace keepers …  wrong doers from right doers … ether way we are nearing this epic line of event be it this expected sun flare or the next …

    This such sun flare AKA pulse sweep will transform into a rolling ball of charge plasma … similar in appearance to the a fiery wall of energy …. better yet similar to that fiery wall sweeping the planet in the movie referred to as “The Knowing” …

    But as I’ve mentioned before … when this event do take place, we are not to be afraid ….. fear changes noting …

    Yet those consciously prepared, should joyously welcome the passing of this wave …. for it will be the passing of an energized ‘dark rift’ comprised of Positive Love energy which will shift a people over into a Utopia gravitational field of a Mother Earth …

    Those who hide below ground and survive will exit out into the same gravitational field their now in which will bear a seared damage of the flare having passed …

    Yet before the actual passing of such a solar flare AKA dark rift AKA pulse sweep AKA Harvest sickle … there will be much more mysteries seen in the heaven and felt in the earth … 

    26. Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

    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;
