REAL AND PRESENT DANGER TO CRYPTO FUTURE CONTAINED IN NEW STUDY AFFECTING GLOBAL ELECTRIC GRID STABILITY

By IRUUR1 | INSTINCTUALISM | 29 Mar 2022


This is a special repost for Ox readers, of an article published today on IRUUR1.com 

This author and the publication are invested in crypto. We do not approach this subject from a ha ha ha, I told you so point of view. In fact, we like you want to survive and thrive in the crypto market. Our publishing business model is tied to BAT, going forward and other cryptos, we endorse. In fact, like you, we believe in blockchain solutions, applied to many enterprises, far beyond those we are able to practically produce in the market today. 

IRUUR1 publishes on two subjects, wealth/assets/economic strategies and science tied to climate, health, etc. We then publish political science content and aggregate news focused under the lens of our core topics. So believe me when I tell you that in reluctantly bringing us all the attention this new study deserves, I am not just another niche doomsday publisher, clearing his throat, and spitting out some useless random details. I don't personally savor the subject, nor do I believe in doomsdays. I believe in predicting, influencing and adapting.

It is important to keep in mind dear readers that the study was not some random lark, funded by idle, Chinese, intra-party bureaucrats, settling a personal bet on the Chinese Guang-26dong 500 kV power grid. These are known very real near future dangers based on regularly occurring high magnitude events, which pose dangers to electrical grid shielding and stability vital to the national interests of China.

Mining for the Future | Shielding The Blockchain From Natural Electric Disruptions

The blockchain is a very electricity dependent and consuming market. Mining is the beating heart of the blockchain. We Ask: Even if electricity in some areas are disrupted in a major way by a major, likely natural event of any kind, how much shielding is required to hold data and not be affected by high magnitude events like solar storms, which will continue to occur cyclically into our future?

Thanks for your attention.

The Article

NWON - The worlds most advanced electric power grid is in big trouble according to a study analyzing the effects of an expected solar superflare event within the next 10 to 30 years. This will now invite further speculation as to our potential transmutation into a potential "Mad Max", future, if the People fail to get their act together, and in short order. The main difference however between our situation and Mad Max, is we may not be left with a car that functions.

The Frequency, Amperage, Potential Damage from Superflares and Shielding Available

The Report begins it's plain language summary cryptically enough,
Plain Language Summary
"The Sun is not a particularly peaceful entity, it can abruptly launch powerful ra-39diation and plasma into space. If such a coronal mass ejection (CME, also called a so-40lar storm) struck the Earth, there would be serious consequences for humanity."
The question is then, how does the grid in China stack up against the rest of the worlds infrastructure?

Chinese Guang-26dong 500 kV power grid

Bloomberg  gives an overview of the advanced power grid.

World's Biggest Ultra-High Voltage Line Powers Up Across China - TD World report

Jan. 2, 2019 - The 1,100-kV direct-current Changji-to-Guquan project stretches 3,293 km (2,046 miles)

(Bloomberg) -- State Grid Corp. of China has started up the world’s longest and most-powerful ultra-high voltage power line from its far northwest to the heavily populated east.

The 1,100-kV direct-current Changji-to-Guquan project stretches 3,293 km (2,046 miles), the nation’s biggest electricity distributor said in a statement Wednesday. That’s roughly the distance between Los Angeles and Cleveland. The 40.7 billion yuan ($5.9 billion) project, which the company referred to as the “Power Silk Road,” was approved in December 2015 and construction started the next month.... MORE

So we know then that the grid system in China is at least one of the most advanced in the world. The study cites imminent danger if a normally occurring and always anticipated, solar superflare occurs. In order to prepare ourselves and shield our equipment, we need to know how often large flares occur, if we are due for one soon, and what magnitudes of intensity we need to shield against.

Solar Flares Established Cycle Of Frequency, Magnitude

Happily we are beginning to establish now, that small and large solar flares happen in regular enough intervals, to allow prediction of events years ahead. Unhappily, we are due for another significant flaring event any time now, and most likely within the next 10-30 years, 40 or 50 on the extreme outside.

 
The event that the study was testing in the range of, was the 2nd one, an X-class solar flare above X-30, to the 40 to 50 magnitude range. This cyclic solar event was first discovered in 1859, and recorded independently by British astronomers Richard Carrington and Richard Hodgson.
When the superflare known as a Carrington event last occurred. it melted all of the worlds transformers, set telegraph and electric wires ablaze and, shut down and destroyed all meaningful electric transmission throughout the world, in practical use at the time.

 1989, Quebec

The last X-class solar flare in the 10 to 20 range of magnitude, happened in 1989. It caused disruptions around the world, the most well known is the Quebec blackout, which is cited in the study. GIC stands for geomagnetically induced currents.

"The most serious power grid incident on record attributable to GICs was the Hydro-65Qu ́ebec power outage during the March 1989 geomagnetic storm. Millions of Hydro-Qu ́ebec66customers suffered from the cold of winter were without power for 9 hours during the event. It was also reported that the GICs produced during this event damaged some ex-68tra high-voltage transformers and other grid components in Canada and the United States"

Ramifications

Because the power grid in China tested in the study is one of the best in the world, the effects of a superflare on the worlds power grids in general, as well as satellites is potentially devastating. The almost impossible task of reconstruction might take up close to a century perhaps longer if ever. Meanwhile, the GIC's trigger ripples that also disrupt underground energy transmission, displace soil and rock and can even cause breakage in pipelines for oil and other underground infrastructure.
Without electricity, many would be catapulted to a Mad Max reality in short order, except you may not have a car that functions anywhere around, according to the intensity of the event and your proximity to it.  If basic measures are not examined and immediately implemented where practical, as soon as parts and personnel can be engaged, we will be in for an avoidable, unnecessarily bumpy ride.

BASIC QUESTIONS TO ACADEMICS, AND TECH EXPERTS - THE INVESTMENT/CONSUMER COMMUNITY NEEDS TO KNOW

The 1859 superflare event, known as the Carrington event, is called the Carrington event based on his further research and in part on his discovery of the 150 to 200 year cyclic occurrence of the event on earth, going back over a 1,000 years.

QUESTIONS Related to X-class solar flares, 20+???

1-How likely is a Carrington event in the next 10, 20, 30, or 40 years
2. What is the shielding necessary to withstand an X-30 to 40 or 50 solar flare, for basic components, underpinning the present regional and global electric grid system
3. Same question as applied to industrial manufacturing, satellites, and telecommunication, internet, household items, etc..
4. Is there shielding currently designed, manufactured or in use, able to shield vital components of local, regional, national power grids, satellite systems, personal electronics etc., against an X-30-40-50 class solar flare
    a. If so, what intensities can best be shielded against and how much is available
5. Has any shielding testing other than the test cited here, for any electric equipment in professional or common use, been tested for an X- factor X20 to X40 flare impact loads
6. If shielding is not accomplished for vital satellite and basic electric grid components, before a superflare, what can be stored to rebuild, and how long will it take to reach 1950's electronic functionality and satellite launch capabilities
   a. For Government/Industry
   b. For consumers

Questions Of Proximity to Center of Flare Impact

We know from this study and others that any large flare will have a ripple effect outward from the point of impact. But even if a full blown 40+ X-class flare stuck the planet;
1. Do we have effective shielding now to protect equipment on the other side of the point of impact of the planet, and manufacturing capabilities there, to begin start up and rebuild, of electrical capacity, for the affected parts of the earth after the blast?
   a. Also Including manufacturing, satellite launch capabilities.
2. Do we have the ability to predict, or anticipate, based on historic Carrington studies, recent data and other solar cycle records, the most likely point(s) of impact for a solar flare?

Setting the Table For Our World In Nature

Our world, our current civilization, is a product we create, from the natural world of our environment. We have been searching like the devil as a species since recorded history, to find out what makes things tick. Where we are in the patterns, cycles, and so forth, within the hierarchy of things. And exactly where we fit in as a uniquely DNA coded biology within our species genome, in which we inhabit and live, as a conscious, subconscious and unconscious, functioning product of the electromagnetic light spectrum.

Just In Time To Protect Ourselves

Whatever we are, right now, for all practical intent and purpose, we are the People. If the People take the initiative to force leaders of industries in which they invest, communities they live in etc to consider these new findings confirmed in this study and others before, in time to begin preparation for what is obviously known to be a natural occurrence, likely due soon, this will galvanize the best of our world.
If we wait for someone else to do what is right, or simply mindlessly comply as in Covid or ending the deadly debt/inflation economy, nearly ready to implode, this knowledge and opportunity will fail to be acted upon, by inertia. The inevitable result of our desire to succumb to the currently trending, lemming like mentality. This is not to say there is anything intrinsically wrong with viral labs for research of all kinds, MRNA, or masks.  But compliance with mass everything has proven to be hazardous policy as we review the results. Plus careless attention and lack of demand for oversight of all public/private funded, viral and other lab work that can be tied to bio-weapons, is mindlessly self destructive.
If we do not seize the fruits of our efforts, which have given us the knowledge we need now, to meet this challenge, our intrinsic ability to prepare and adapt in nature, to a predictable superflare, and other earth, space weather changes, like so many other opportunities and possibilities thrust upon us in the past, and present, will have been undermined again. We have the information we need and must come up with a bankable industrial asset option. Time ticks. If we act now the possibilities, as always, are endless. Guaranteed.

BLOCKCHAIN SOLUTIONS?

There must be many. BAT has a product called Brave. It is a blockchain attention reward token for content. Quality in broad content and infrastructure terms should mean better quality in, better quality out, and a greater value for BAT. Translate this into blockchain content solutions for organizing data and developing product around shielding and there may be many blockchain solutions possible  with investment rewards for worthy solutions in the end.
