Obama Signs Executive Order To Prepare For ‘Space Weather Events’

President Obama signs executive order preparing American public for space weather events

President Obama signed an executive order on Thursday to prepare the American people for imminent “Space weather events” in the next 120 days. 

The White house say that solar flares, and geomagnetic disturbances are likely to have a huge impact on electrical equipment on Earth that could pose a health and safety crisis across the globe.

Preparing for a complete electrical grid collapse, the executive order states:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to prepare the Nation for space weather events, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents.

USAToday.com reports:

And if the weather is extreme enough, Obama said, it “has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents.” Solar winds could disable the electrical power grid, resulting in “cascading failures” that would affect almost every area of modern life — including basic health and safety issues like the water supply.

The executive order came as Obama prepared to travel to Pittsburgh for a technology conference focusing on artificial intelligence, space exploration, clean energy and precision medicine.

Like many executive orders, Obama’s directive instructs executive branch agencies on their responsibilities in preparing and responding to space weather events. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy will coordinate the efforts of agencies across the government, including Defense, Commerce, Energy and NASA, which will work together to improve their ability to forecast space weather events and protect critical infrastructure from their effects.

Obama also ordered the release of federal data on previous space weather events.

Obama’s executive order also made public for the first time the existence of a previously unknown secret policy directive he signed on July 15. Presidential Policy Directive 40 established a new national continuity policy that defined the “national essential functions” of the federal government. Such directives, known as PPDs, are an often secret form of executive order in the realm of national security.

    A camouflage, a ruse for something else as the prince of confusion moves the pieces on chessboard. To confuse even more, other climate scientist say the Sun will continue to diminish in solar activity in its present cycle. So again, ask yourself why? What’s ahead for humanity.

    Does sound like camouflage….but for an EMP attack. Russia is prepping her population for nuclear attack. Putin could not speak more emphatically about the danger of nuclear war. But no one is listening. Our leadership is no leadership at all. Obama does not tell the truth. He is a child of the CIA and “strategic” lying is his modus operandi. There is no talk of the threat of nuclear war in our media, except on the internet. But for him to issue this warning when the sun is quiescent and there is talk of a new Maunder Minimum, is clearly misdirection. This is another defensive move on the road to war disguised as preparation for “bad weather”. It is designed to prevent panic. Don’t scare the herd.

      NBC has an article saying the US might use a cyber attack on Russia and I’m like well why don’t you just call them up and tell them what you’re going to do.

        A “cyber attack” and an EMP are very different things. A high altitude nuclear explosion to create an EMP is much worse than any hacking. The media are not dealing with the nuclear threat.

    in short where fucked

    Bruce Voigt posted 03 December 2005 There are violent forces at play. The forces of the Sun, Moon and Earth dance together giving us seasons, tides etc. The Sun recently has been stepping on toes as it glides through this dance sending our north magnetic pole whizzing away a thousand miles to wards Russia then coming home to dance around an 85km oval every 24hr. This seemingly little dance is causing all kinds of hell for a species that thinks its the be and end all of the Universe. This Sun activity can muck around with slivers of Earth energy causing the Earth to tip, compasses to swing, radio reception, gps problems, tornado’s, tsunami, re location of oceans and climate etc. (BUT) The big kahuna Earths NUCLEUS is not PHASED by this UNTIL! Our NINTH Planet third or fourth from the sun comes bar-ling around the Sun appearing to be heading right for us. I Bruce Voigt claim that the recently discovered Asteroid 2002 AA 29 is really a Moon of (and yes I have named this Planet) OLD BRUCE. OLD BRUCE orbits the Sun in close proximity to Earths orbit every 365 point something day’s and the Earth is slowly catching up or visa versa. In approximately sixty five million years from now OLD BRUCE will be close enough to change (like a magnet) Earths Nucleus direction. At that very moment instant freezing takes place and because of no gravity any thing not attached drifts out into Earth orbit to be collected by the Moon. (Good real estate investment for an optimist). These are the Three true Ice ages, one in coming two as Old Bruce eclipses Earth (the really big sleep) and three as Old Bruce again changes the Earths nucleus and
    nuclei direction.
    So after all that you now know what really happened to DINO
