If you're not living through the rapidly accelerating Earth changes, you probably are trying to avoid what is 'real world stuff' that is accelerating. Like everything else you think is a passing phase that will soon go away and we will rebuild. Not true. Reality Check: the economy getting better, lack of a good choice for US president 2012, health care for all, housing for all, bringing the troops home, and whatever else needs fixing. We are returning to Zero Point and the time grids are in flux - like watching consciousness static out of existence. You may see this with health issues where people stammer in and out. This is about the brain misfiring. This is about the Sun. This is about Time. This is about Time Travel.
Wildfires Ravage 6 States: Arizona, Texas, California, New Mexico, Colorado and Georgia ABC - June 21, 2011
About 10,000 Arizonans have been forced to flee from their homes as wildfires continue to consume wide swaths of the southwestern United States today. Three dozen fires are raging across parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and California, as well as Texas and Georgia, forcing additional evacuations and slowing traffic to a crawl as highways in the path of the firestorms are closed.

All this talk about the sun going into a quiet cycle ... don't count on it. This is the calm before the (solar) storm. The Sun surprised us on June 7, 2011 with a massive Coronal Mass Ejection ... and definitely will again.
A CME propelled toward Earth by the "solstice solar flare" of June 21st may be moving slower than originally thought. Analysts at the GSFC Space Weather Lab have downgraded the cloud's probable speed from 800 km/s to 650 km/s. Impact is now expected on June 24th at 0700 UT plus or minus 7 hours. In this animated forecast model, the yellow dot is Earth.
This week, researchers and policy makers met in Washington DC to ask themselves, What if it happens again? Science@NASA.
The Carrington Event of September 1859 occurred during a solar minimum cycle and was the most powerful solar storm in recorded history. The largest flare, observed by Richard Carrington, became known as the Carrington Super Flare. Just before dawn the next day, skies all over planet Earth erupted in red, green, and purple auroras so brilliant that newspapers could be read as easily as in daylight. Stunning auroras pulsated even at near tropical latitudes over Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamaica, El Salvador, and Hawaii. Spark discharges shocked telegraph operators and set the telegraph paper on fire. The solar flare was so unusual, researchers still aren't sure how to categorize it.
As 2011 unfolds, the sun is once again on the eve of a solar minimum cycle - at least that's what forecasters are saying. Don't bet on it. A similar storm today might knock us for a loop affecting power grids, GPS, and satellite communications and anything vulnerable to solar storms. CMEs affect planetary magnetics, sparking geomagnetic storms, shifting ocean and jet stream currents in the Pacific Ring of Fire, creating unusual and extreme global weather patterns, creating unstoppable Earth changes, and affecting the behavior patterns of all sentient life forms.
can occur even when the underlying cycle is nominally weak.
