The Next Peak Cycle of Sunspot Activity is Predicted for 2012-2014

The next peak cycle of sunspot activity is predicted for 2012-2014, bringing with it a greater risk of large geomagnetic storms that can generate powerful rogue currents in transmission lines, potentially damaging or destroying the large transformers that manage power flow over high-voltage networks.

“Geomagnetically-induced currents on system infrastructure have the potential to result in widespread tripping of key transmission lines and irreversible physical damage to large transformers,” a 2009 report (pdf) by the North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) and the Energy Department says.

Agreement on the seriousness of the threat, but not the solution

In the worst-case scenario, the stockpile of spare transformers would fall far short of replacement needs. Urban centers across the continent would be without power for many months or even years, until new transformers could be manufactured and delivered from Asia. The transformers are not made in the United States.

Give, Give, Give

Give, Give, Give

 

“Give, give, give and give. Be ready to serve in all ways, even by your thoughts. That’s why in our Yoga classes we end by saying, ‘May the entire universe be filled with peace and joy, love and light.’ Let’s send out good thoughts and vibrations into the world. It costs you nothing. A smile isn’t going to cost you anything. Smile at everybody, think good of everyone and speak well of everybody.

 

“God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.”, H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda
