Monster Solar Flare Marks 7th Powerful Sun Storm in 7 Days
By Doris Elin Salazar, Space.com Staff Writer | September 11, 2017 03:31pm ET


The sun fired off yet another powerful solar flare yesterday (Sept. 10), its seventh in seven days.

The flare, which peaked at 12:06 EDT (1606 GMT), covered North and South America in high-energy light. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) released a statement that warned of strong, high-frequency radio blackouts and navigation-system disruption, potentially lasting up to an hour.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Does this mean we should expect another one of our Navy ships to crash?

An "X" class solar flare releases as much energy as 1 billion hydrogen bombs. On average every 24 hours, Sol irradiates Terra with 30 nonillion watts of EM energy - equivalent to the amount of energy that the human race could generate in 10 million years. Despite this, most AGW fanatics want us to believe that the effects of anthropogenic output of an inert trace gas that is never more than an average .004 % of the total atmosphere CO2 are more powerful than the combined effects of variations in solar output, NATURAL CO2 emissions (which are generally at least 10x those of human beings and often much, much more), natural forest/plains fires, cosmic ray effects on high altitude cloud formation, variations in axial tilt, orbital precession, deep ocean upwelling of methane, natural CO emissions from decay of vegetable matter, variations in water in the atmosphere in humidity, clouds, rain, fog and changes in ocean currents (El Nino, etc) COMBINED.

To believe such an absurdity is more outlandish on its face than the belief that a spit wad can derail a freight train.
