GENEVA - A senior official at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says solar storms pose a growing threat to critical infrastructure such as satellite communications, navigation systems and electrical transmission equipment.

NOAA Assistant Secretary Kathryn Sullivan says the intensity of solar storms is expected to peak in 2013 and countries should prepare for "potentially devastating effects."

Solar storms release particles that can temporarily disable or permanently destroy fragile computer circuits.

Sullivan, a former NASA astronaut who in 1984 became the first woman to walk in space, told a U.N. weather conference in Geneva on Tuesday that "it is not a question of if, but really a matter of when a major solar event could hit our planet."

Good thing the government shut down the most reliable navigation system that is totally land based and benefits both air and sea travel.

He probably posted this about 5 years before it was written.

It's Bush's fault.

...so then, the sea level rises as Greenies predict and puts the solar fire out and the world starts over again.

No he'd post it today and then claim he'd been following and predicting this news for five years. He just never got around to letting anyone know. It was obvious though if you followed all the signs.

They covered this on CNN, months ago.

The government used HAARP to shoot the sun with chemtrails so the sun would emit radiation that would kill the NWO while keeping all the sheeple clueless.

My understanding was that radio system was subject to line of sight problems at sunrise and sunset and the ionesphere part was subject to multiple echo problems. The precision of GPS wasn't duplicated at any scale and that Magnetic and inertia guidance was just as adequate and accurate at gross scales of ocean transit.
