DHS Report Points To Armageddon Scenario

In 2009 the DHS commissioned a report into the threats posed by space weather. The fact that they did this is not surprising. We would all prefer that the government actually did something sensible like protect their citizens from the impact of CME’s, flares and such. The report was published in November 2011 and it states quite clearly on the documentation page that it’s an unclassified report that has been approved for unlimited public release.

With something that can impact millions of people in the US alone it’s amazing that few people have heard that such a report exists.

There are 22 nuclear reactors in the North-Eastern US, could that be the reason that the report is well buried? Or is it because after incidents like Katrina and Sandy the government proved over and over it couldn’t cope? Both of those examples were very, very small in comparison to having 130,000,000 people without power.

It’s a very comprehensive report, excellent reading if you’re into that kind of thing, but even if you’re not I suggest you look at section 4.3 of the document. Here’s a taster:

• More than 300 EHV transformers destroyed

• 130 million people lacking power for several years until damaged high-voltage transformers are replaced

• 1-2 trillion dollars of economic loss

The scenario is based on the ionospheric electrojet centered at 50 degrees North…which is around Lakewoods County Minnesota. It makes for some very scary reading.

    Wow, great report. Couple of things you see in gov’t reports, hey it MIGHT not be as bad as predicted. That is smal comfort if it is as bad or worse. The other is recommendations that would mitigate the damage and save billions, if not trillions, of dollars that were probably never even considered by the powers that be. So we know the risk is medium to high for this event, we know how to mitigate it and we hope it never happens even though history tells us it will. This is YOUR US Gov’t looking out for you!
