Default 2013 solar flare

so how are we all going to heat our vivariums if, what nasa is saying, is true, we could all be without electricity from a few hours up to a few months?

My sentiments exactly! What is going on?

And in answer to the question, I do not quite know... Wind-up gadgets? Back up generators? Solar powered generators?

If its going to be a few months then what about everything, seing as we are a species that is so reliant on electricity i think the only people that would profit is those that have/sell generators, although this wouldn't last too long as petrol pumps are controled by electricity, so are shop tills etc etc and so on, so how will the WE cope?

at the end of 2012 beginning of 2013, the sun is expected to produce a massive solar flare of magnetic radiation (the thing that causes the northern lights) which can potentially knock out power grids and communication for months. the last time this happened was well over a hundred years ago when electricity was not as replied upon as much

funny how its around the sort of time the mayans predicted the world would end. coincidence?

we could survive quite easily without electricity, its not the inconvenience im worried about, its the breakdown of society. people do extraordinary things when they are desperate
