The World Won't End The Way You've Been Told
"Confronted on many occasions in
the past by the prospect of world- end, national elites have often
found themselves having to suppress public panic -- only to
discover, too late, that usual means of control commonly fail. Thus
an institutionalized science is expected to withhold knowledge of
the threat; a self-regulated press is expected to make light of any
disaster; while an institutionalized religion is expected to oppose
predestination and to secure such general belief in a fundamentally
benevolent deity as can be mustered."
The above comments are found in a
letter (dated June 4, 1996) from the office of Dr. P. A. Charles,
then Head of Astrophysics of the University of Oxford, to Ms.
Victoria Cox, then Chief, Physics and BMD Coordinator of the
European Office of Aerospace Research and Development. The letter
(written by S V M Clube) summarizes the findings of USAF funded
research resulting in the report, The Hazard to Civilization From
Fireballs and Comets. This full letter may be read
Although the report does not
represent the electrical perspective on comets and/or meteoroids, it
raises many issues of enormous import to the Electric Universe. As
correctly pointed out by Clube, scientific, governmental, and
religious officialdom seem to live in either deliberate or
unconscious denial of the real global threats posed to Earth --
including evidence of global catastrophes in the recent past. In
1950, Immanuel Velikovsky proposed in his book Worlds in Collision
that in a once-violent and chaotic solar system, the earth
experienced global disturbances, including electric arcs passing
between the earth and cosmic intruders. Subsequently, academia
applied such pressure to the book's publisher that it was dropped
while it was the NY Times' number one bestseller. This pathology of
denial and suppression continues today, as mainstream cosmology
remains willfully ignorant of the Electric Universe -- a model that
rewrites much of human history into a story that is far more
dramatic and frightening than we've been led to believe.
lobbyists continually promote fear of the End of the World in the
hope of securing endless billions in funds for more research and
"action." The "doomsday" asteroid threat and the global warming
madhouse are the favored causes of the moment. From the Electric
Universe perspective, officialdom has misled the public on both
issues, and required is immediate and fundamental correction.
When it comes to "killer asteroids,"
according to EU proponents, our planet may not be nearly so
vulnerable as the mainstream insists. From the EU perspective, as
explained by Wallace Thornhill, Earth, asteroids, and comets are
charged bodies moving in the electric field of the Sun. Thornhill
believes that the charge difference between the earth and these
bodies from the depths of the solar system provides the earth with a
natural defense against asteroids and comets, particularly very
large ones. When an asteroid or comet enters the electric field of
the Earth, which is contained within its "magnetosophere," or more
accurately, plasma sheath, there will be a powerful discharge
between the two bodies.
See previous TPODs, Tunguska -- The
Fire in the Sky
and The Comet and the Chicago Fire
The internal electrical stress
caused by the discharge of the interloping asteroid or comet will
generally cause it to detonate like an exploding capacitor -- just
as comets have frequently exploded "inexplicably" as they moved
toward the Sun on their elongated orbits.
See The Explosive Demise of Comet
and When Comets Break Apart
Also Schwassmann-Wachmann 3
This electrical effect is also
witnessed in bolides that flicker, flare up and explode as they
streak toward the Earth. It is why meteors become visible to the eye
when they are about 60 miles in altitude, and a few appear at up to
twice that height. And it is why meteors are sometimes accompanied
by electrophonic sound that is simultaneous with their flaring up.
(See The Peekskill Meteor)
This is not to say that the Electric
theorists believe comets and asteroids pose no threat to human
beings. But the havoc these bodies might wreak would likely be
limited to localized disasters -- perhaps a series of Tunguska-like
events producing regional devastation with falls of sand and dust,
perhaps electrical craters, fires and earthquakes, but no single
impact crater at all.

for a Tunguska "impact" site, see New Tunguska Crater Found?
The devastation of a global
extinction requires an encounter with something much larger than a
puny comet or asteroid. In all likelihood, it requires electrical
exchanges with a body the size of a planet or moon.
On the question of global warming,
EU proponents insist that the issue has never been properly
considered. Any attempt to understand atmospheric and meteorologic
phenomena on Earth or any planet is futile if one remains ignorant
of the Electric Sun model. Thornhill writes in his essay "Global
Warming in a Climate of Ignorance":
"Simply put, we do not understand
the Sun. And if we do not understand the Sun we have no basis for
understanding its influence on the Earth's climate.
"But there is a way to understand
the Sun, if only we can step outside the traditional astrophysical
assumption that gravity alone operates in space. The generation and
transmission of power for electric lights involves magnetism. And
unlike any campfire, the Sun manifests an abundance of magnetic
phenomena. Those phenomena suggest that the Sun is an electrical
body. The magnetic field of the solar wind shows that electric
currents flow within the solar system. The million-degree
temperature of the solar corona points to an external power source
for the Sun. The polar plume and equatorial plasma torus show that
the Sun, like all stars, is the focus of galactic currents
'pinching' naturally into an hourglass form with an equatorial

According to Thornhill, Earth and
all the planets are in a continuous electric relationship with the
Sun. This is why the temperatures of the upper atmospheres of
planetary "gas giants" have long presented a conundrum to
astronomers. They are hotter than can be explained by absorbed
sunlight, and other attempts to explain the temperature anomalies in
mechanical terms have met with failure.
In a recent report in the journal
Nature, scientists commented on the perplexing (to them) heating of
Saturn's upper atmosphere: "This unexplained 'energy crisis'
represents a major gap in our understanding of these planet's
atmospheres." Another scientist commented, "We need to re-examine
our basic assumptions about planetary atmospheres and what causes
the observed heating."
Unfortunately, the "basic
assumption" that has directed the space sciences for nearly a
century is the belief that space is electrically inert. Most
astronomers and meteorologists still do not realize what has already
been demonstrated by recent discoveries of the Earth-Sun connection:
charge exchange is continuous, and the auroras are just one effect
of the ongoing electrical transactions. The planetary theater is, in
fact, filled with electrical circuits across the conducting plasma
It is the electric model of the Sun
that will enable us to understand the highly energetic
meteorological phenomena we see on many planets in our solar system,
including the extraordinary global dust storms witnessed on Mars.
See When Dust Storms Engulf Mars
In fact, in the famous
planet-enshrouding Martian dust storm of 2001, temperatures rose a
stunning 40 degrees C -- what investigators called a case of
"instantaneous global warming." But to this day, NASA scientists
still give no attention to the relationship of that event to the
planet's eccentric orbit, or the fact that Mars was nearing
perihelion and was the closest it had been to Earth in about 12
years. At that time it was also being "tickled" by the Earth's
plasma sheath, or magnetosphere, establishing a temporary electrical
connection between Earth and Mars for the transfer of charge. It
seems that Mars responded with an outburst of atmospheric
discharges, these taking the form of monstrous dust devils -- or
more accurately, electrical tornadoes.
See Picture of the Day for March 22,
2005, Dust Devils -- or Tornadoes
From the EU perspective,
interplanetary currents focused largely on the sun feed electrical
storms on planets, including Earth. The increases in solar output,
together with the incoming currents directly intercepted by planets,
can charge up the planetary ionospheres -- the outcome being
"anomalous" heating of the upper atmospheres.
Since "global warming" is being
witnessed on other planets, including Mars (according to NASA, the
planet has been steadily warming for at least the past several
decades), mainstream scientists have greater cause than ever to
"re-examine (their) basic assumptions about planetary atmospheres
and what causes the observed heating."
But ironically, from the Electric
Universe perspective, the potential for global catastrophe on Earth,
including rapid climate change, may be far GREATER than most
scientists believe. Our relationship with the Electric Sun is far
from purely benevolent. Within the last two centuries, we have been
hit (or nearly hit) with solar flares that may have had the
potential to eradicate civilization. In September of 1859, we were
wracked by a flare so powerful that telegraphic service went down,
equipment caught fire, and some people were even shocked into
unconsciousness. A new book "The Sun Kings: The Unexpected Tragedy
of Richard Carrington and the Tale of How Modern Astronomy Began,"
outlines the terrifying danger posed by CME storms, including a
series of powerful solar flares that hit Earth during October 2003.
This vision of a possible future stands in radical contrast to the
nuclear fusion model, which would have us believe that the earth
will exist rather peacefully in the Sun's domain for several billion
years, until its hypothetical cataclysmic death throes.
Albert Einstein once asked, "Is the
Universe friendly?" Ultimately, the answer is probably a resounding
"No!" although not for the reasons we've always been told.
