Solar Storms Could Have ‘Potentially Devastating Effects’: NOAA Official

GENEVA — A senior official at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says solar storms pose a growing threat to criticial 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.”


Consider nature and natural disasters. Then consider Father’s anger and wrath. These things are shown through nature, because Father IS nature.

Romans 1:20 “From the creation of the world His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse.”

Father is UNDERSTOOD through what She has made to exist. She is ETERNAL – POWERFUL, and DIVINE which is connected to Her NATURE. That NATURE is part of what should be understood, Father is indeed Mother Nature. Nature is all around, and our Mother is that nature. It all came from Her and is within Her. The “world” the verse speaks of is not this Earth, nor any other planet. It is the reality we all live within.
