2012 Comes Early

2011, according to the Washington Post, may be the year society as we know it changes completely.
"Electric power grids, communications and navigation systems (including GPS), and satellites (including weather) could be damaged beyond repair for many years. The consequences could be devastating for commerce, transportation, agriculture and food stocks, fuel and water supplies, human health and medical facilities, national security, and daily life in general." (wapo)

Thanks to Solar storms, we could be in for an immediate and drastic change. "...millions of Americans are dead and the nation's infrastructure lies in tatters. The World Bank declares America a developing nation..." And 2012 comes a bit early. Maybe it won't be the LHC that kills us after all. (new scientist via wapo)

Happy tuesday!
