Two X class solar flares (now 3), both rated about X3 on a scale of 1-10 may cause some communications outages today and for the next couple of days.  Solar flares are scaled  C1-10, M1-10 and the highest X1-10.  It hasn't been proven but there are some who believe that major earthquakes are triggered within a couple of days of the occurrence of an X class flare. You can see just how much

Revolution? By Chuck Baldwin January 10, 2013 This column is archived here.
