After Several Near Misses, Experts Warn The Next Carrington Event Will Plunge Us Back Into The Dark Ages

The United States Of America At Night

Most people have absolutely no idea that the Earth barely missed being fried by a massive EMP burst from the sun in 2012, in 2013 and just last month.  If any of those storms would have directly hit us, the result would have been catastrophic.  Electrical transformers would have burst into flames, power grids would have gone down and much of our technology would have been fried.  In essence, life as we know it would have ceased to exist – at least for a time.  These kinds of solar storms have hit the Earth many times before, and experts tell us that it is inevitable that it will happen again.  The most famous one happened in 1859, and was known as the Carrington Event.  But other than the telegraph, humanity had very little dependence on technology at the time.  If another Carrington Event happened today, it would be a complete and utter nightmare.  A study by Lloyd’s of London has concluded that it would have taken a (Read More...)

Extremely Contagious Pig Virus Has Already Killed More Than 4 Million Hogs In The U.S.

If you eat pork, get ready to pay a lot more for it.  A highly contagious pig virus known as “Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus” has now spread to 27 different U.S. states, and it has killed more than 4 million hogs since last May.  Smithfield Foods, the largest pork producer in the entire world, estimates that approximately 10 percent of all adult female hogs in America have contracted the disease already, and there is a very good chance that any offspring that they have will die.  That is because the mortality rate for this disease for piglets is between 80 and 100 percent.  Fortunately, we are being told that this disease does not affect humans.  However, considering the fact that California is in the midst of one of the worst droughts in recorded history, and considering the fact that the U.S. cattle herd has shrunk (Read More...)

31 Percent Of U.S. Honey Bees Were Wiped Out This Year – Who Will Pollinate Our Crops?

Bee

If bees keep dying off at this rate, we are going to be facing a horrific agricultural crisis very rapidly in the United States.  Last winter, 31 percent of all U.S. bee colonies were wiped out.  The year before that it was 21 percent.  These colony losses are being described as “catastrophic” by those in the industry, and nobody is quite sure how to fix the problem.  Some are blaming the bee deaths on pesticides, others are blaming parasites and others are blaming cell phones.  But no matter what is causing these deaths, if it doesn’t stop we will all soon notice the effects at the supermarket.  Bees pollinate about a hundred different crops in the United States, and if the bees disappear nobody is quite sure how we will be able to continue to grow many of those crops.  This emerging crisis does not get a lot of attention from the mainstream media, but if we continue to lose 30 percent of our bees every year it is going to have a cataclysmic effect on our food supply.

The frightening thing is that the bee deaths appear to be accelerating and they appear to be (Read More...)

Scientists Plan To Feed Maggots To The Cows And Chickens That We Eat

Would you eat a sandwich that contains meat from a chicken that had been fed a steady diet of maggots?  Would you eat a burger that comes from a cow that had been fed lots of gummy worms and expired candy?  Would you eat a burger that is made out of recycled human poop?  Those are just some of the bizarre solutions to the global food crisis that scientists are currently working on.  And without a doubt, we are rapidly approaching a day of reckoning as far as the global supply of food is concerned.  The global food supply is the lowest that it has been in nearly 40 years, but global demand for food just keeps rising.  In fact, global demand for meat and dairy products is projected to double by 2050.  So how in the world are we going to feed everyone?  That would be a great (Read More...)

Rise Of The Preppers: 50 Of The Best Prepper Websites And Blogs On The Internet

Preppers

Are you preparing for the collapse of society?  If so, the truth is that you are definitely not alone.  The number of preppers in the U.S. has absolutely exploded in recent years.  It has been estimated that there are now approximately 3 million preppers in the United States, and “Doomsday Preppers” is currently the highest rated show on the National Geographic channel.  In fact, you could be living next to a prepper and never even know it.  All over America, families are transforming spare rooms into long-term food storage pantries, planting survival gardens, unplugging from the grid, converting their homes over to alternative sources of energy, taking self-defense courses and stocking up on just about everything that you can imagine.  The re-election of Barack Obama and other recent events seem to have given the prepper movement even more momentum.  For example, in January the U.S. Mint broke all kinds of records and sold (Read More...)
