Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

2012 Solar Storm = Long-Term Power Blackout

Submitted by on March 31, 2012 – 12:09 am7 Comments

Lawrence E Joesph, Patrick Geryl and myself would probably be the 2012 catastrophists that have reached the most people. Something we all proclaim is that our Sun is the most likely source of a 2012 disaster:

  • Geryl: convoluted math and ancient texts prove that a 2012 disaster is certain
  • Joseph: science says a new Carrington event is kinda due, and 2012 has religious aspects as well
  • Bast: observations by ancients of auroras at low latitudes could have predicted a 2012 solar storm

We each understand that a solar storm could wipe out power grids and potentially melt down nuclear facilities, leading to many millions of lost lives. That late 2012/ early 2013 is probably the peak of this solar cycle fits well with all three theories. Aside from the “2012 is the year” aspect, many key bodies agree with us:

  • NASA: “NASA has warned that a peak in the sun’s magnetic energy cycle and the number of sun spots or flares around 2013 could generate huge radiation levels. The resulting solar storm could cause a geomagnetic storm on Earth, knocking out electricity grids around the world for hours, days, or even months, bringing much of normal life grinding to a halt.”
  • US Space Weather Prediction Centre: “North America or northern Europe may be without power from between days or weeks, to perhaps months and, in extreme cases, there are estimates that it could last years”
  • NASA (again): …power grids may be more vulnerable than ever… Interconnectedness makes the system susceptible to wide-ranging “cascade failures.” …more than 350 transformers at risk of permanent damage and 130 million people without power.
  • National Academy of Sciences: “The report warns of widespread failures in telecommunications, electric power, banking and finance, and transportation; even water supplies could be disrupted”.
  • Scientific American: “Ice cores suggest that such a blast of solar particles happens only once every 500 years, but even the storms every 50 years could fry satellites, jam radios and cause coast-to-coast blackouts.”
  • IEEE:” If we do nothing—if we stand by and wait for politicians to appreciate the risks and act on them—we may witness one of the worst catastrophes of all time

I’ve written a new article that looks at how the power grids of North America, Europe and Australasia could go down for months on end, leading to great suffering and misery – 2012 Solar Storms.

And if you think our governments have it covered, think again, and think Hurricane Katrina and think Fukushima – both preventable.

BTW, if you are serious about preparing for the worst, get my survival ebook.


  • Kunal says:

    Oh my god, really?? No way! Hey, you know what? This powerful solar storm could also light up my delicates through my pants!! You’re all dead for sure if that happens, I assure you.

  • Rebecca says:

    All joking aside…not even our caves, etc. could save us…everyone would be cooked! (No pun intended)

  • It’s kind’a like the sun shooting out a massive EMP and at the
    same time shouting at us “Bunker this, Earthlings”.
    After more than a decade of hearing science fiction stories this crap, I am at the point where if it is the end ,I say finally.
    If not,I am glad I am thoroughly prepared for a lengthy emergency.

  • Linda says:

    mmm.. does this mean new beginnings so we can finally get it right??

    As Steven says…if this is the end…so be it…if not maybe we should all wake up and “smell the roses”

  • Kunai is an hilarious person.

  • AlexV says:

    wow, 1 week to go and still charging 27 bucks for 56 pages on how and where to potentially survive…
    apart from any implicit contradiction…nice move, mate.

  • Robert Bast says:

    Substantially cheaper as a real book from Amazon. Under 4 pounds in the UK, with free delivery. $6.63 in the USA.

    For the eBook, you will note the website is called After 2012 I will still sell it, because it still has good info for surviving any natural disaster, regardless of 2012.

    People do have a choice to buy or not buy – I’m not making anyone pay $27!
