Were the Mayans Aware of Impending Solar Activity in 2012, Thousands of Years Before NASA?
Decreased solar activity over the last few years could potentially trigger a solar maximum or EMP event halting planet Earthâs modernized civilization as we know it virtually overnight.

Why have the elites been gearing up at unprecedented rates with underground structures in a rushed erratic fashion? This question has also led me to ask myself,Â âDoes any of this 2012 stuff make sense?â
âTheÂ solar cycleÂ (orÂ solar magnetic activity cycle) is the periodic change in the sunâs activity (including changes in the levels of solar radiation and ejection of solar material) and appearance (visible in changes in the number of sunspots, flares, and other visible manifestations). Solar cycles have a duration of about 11 years. They have been observed (by changes in the sunâs appearance and by changes seen on Earth, such as auroras) for hundreds of yearsâ.Â âÂ Wikipedia
At one point in 2011, I remember trying to attend an online meeting with top solar scientists and NASA employees who were to release a new discovery a major announcement regarding the suns activities. When I entered the online chat many members of the public had attended and were enthused for the upcoming announcement that was to be live-streaming any minute.
However, the announcement never took place as official members of the group decided to go into a secret conference.
This peeked my interest. Why would the sun be so secret? Is it a threat? What did these scientists and NASA know?
Later I realized the implications. A massive solar stormÂ could pose a threatÂ to electronic devices, electrical power grids, and NASAâs space station spiraling the world into chaos almost overnight.
During a solar flare charged particles bombard the planet at nearly 4 million miles per hour, and with gapping holes in our magnetosphere this could cripple planets Earthâs inhabitants in many ways.
Are we headed into a new version of theÂ Maunder Minimum,Â or will a major sun maximum event pop off?
UniversityToday.comÂ reports one point of view;
Three researchers studying three different aspects of the Sun have all come up with the same conclusion: the Sunâs regular solar cycles could be shutting down or going into hibernation.
A major decrease in solar activity is predicted to occur for the next solar cycle (cycle #25), and our current solar cycle (#24) could be the last typical one. âThree very different types of observations all pointing in the same direction is very compelling,â said Dr. Frank Hill from the National Solar Observatory, speaking at a press briefing today. âCycle 24 may be the last normal one, and 25 may not even happen.â
Even though the Sun has been active recently as it heads towards solar maximum in 2013, there are three lines of evidence pointing to a solar cycle that may be going on hiatus.
They are: a missing jet stream, slower activity near the poles of the sun and a weakening magnetic field, meaning fading sunspots. Hill, along with Dr. Richard Altrock from the Air Force Research Laboratory and Dr. Matt Penn from the National Solar Observatory independently studied the different aspects of the solar interior, the visible surface, and the corona and all concur that cycle 25, will be greatly reduced or may not happen at all.
However, others think that a massive and devastating solar event might be in the works for late 2012 after the current drop in activity.
Do NASA and government agencies know something we donât?
Mike AdamsÂ writes;
Such a scenario is not merely possible, but factuallyÂ inevitable. And the global tidal wave threatening all the nuclear power plants of the world isnât made of water butÂ solar emissions.
The sun, you see, is acting up again. NASA recently warned that solar activity is surging, with a peak expected to happen in 2013 that could generate enormous radiation levels that sweep across planet Earth. TheÂ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) has even issued an urgent warning about solar flares due to strike in 2012 and 2013.
IBtimesÂ wrote, âWith solar activity expected to peak around 2013, the Sun is entering a particularly active time and big flares like the recent one will likely be common during the next few years. âŠA major flare in the mid-19th century blocked the nascent telegraph system, and some scientists believe that another such event is now overdue.â (http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/194âŠ)
The story goes on to explain:
âSeveral federal government studies suggest that this extreme solar activity and emissions may result in complete blackouts for years in some areas of the nation. Moreover, there may also be disruption of power supply for years, or even decades, as geomagnetic currents attracted by the storm could debilitate the transformers.â
Why does all this matter? To understand that, you have to understand how nuclear power plants function. Or, put another way, how is nuclear material prevented from âgoing nuclearâ every single day across our planet?
Every nuclear power plant operates in a near-meltdown state
All nuclear power plants are operated in a near-meltdown status. They operate at very high heat, relying on nuclear fission to boil water that produces steam to drive the turbines that generate electricity.
Critically, the nuclear fuel is prevented from melting down through the steady circulation ofÂ coolantsÂ which are pushed through the cooling system using very high poweredÂ electric pumps.
If you stop the electric pumps, the coolant stops flowing and the fuel rods go critical (and then melt down). This is what happened in Fukushima, where the melted fuel rods dropped through the concrete floor of the containment vessels, unleashing enormous quantities of ionizing radiation into the surrounding environment.
