The World Won't End The Way You've Been Told
by Michael Goodspeed
"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.
Paradoxically, officialdom's 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 "magnetosphere," or more accurately,
plasma sheath, there will be a powerful discharge between the two
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.

and When Comets Break Apart

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.

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
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 current sheet."

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.

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.
