Biggest Solar in years to hit Earth head on tomorrow

Hold for a rough ride... as we progress through 2012 the solar storms will pick up right into 2013.
EARTH's magnetic field is about to be shaken like a snow globe by the largest solar storm in five years.

After hurtling through space for a day and a half, a massive cloud of charged particles is due to arrive late today and could disrupt utility grids, airline flights, satellite networks and GPS services, especially in northern areas. But the same blast could also paint colourful auroras farther from the poles than normal.

Scientists say the storm, which started with a massive solar flare earlier in the week, is growing as it races outward from the sun, expanding like a giant soap bubble. When it strikes early, the particles will be moving at 6.4 million kph.

"It's hitting us right in the nose," said Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colorado. Read more source

completely dependent on:

In my opinion,it should be: "FREE"
like the air,we all need to breath.


All it would take,would be for ALL of us, to make it happen!
Why do we sit around, taking electricity for granted & paying that bloody bill, when it should be,& could be: FREE!!

Do you know,and it is, on record!
that people have died! from having not, been able to pay their power bill! brackets: [LIFE-SUPPORT] at home!
this story could go on!...but more
importantly,when are WE going to see some change,for the very thing
that is "OUR" Foundation of; life-support: - "ELECTRICITY!" -

We need change NOW!
