8.1 THE CHANGES OF THE HELIOSPHERE

Devastating earthquakes, 400% more frequent just since 1973.  Volcanoes belching dust, smoke and lava, 500% more than in 1875.  Tornadoes in unexpected areas such as Maryland, 200% more frequent than 50 years ago. 
Unprecedented mega-hurricanes sweeping across coastlines.  Blistering heatwaves, and winters without snow. Wildfires raging across continents. Crippling droughts and / or unprecedented floodings. Ever-climbing numbers of mass species extinctions.
Massive heatings in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  Gigantic chunks of ice falling off of the polar icecaps. Solar activity so energetic that many satellites were not built to withstand the sudden increases, shattering all previous expectations. 
Catastrophic Earth changes, such as earthquake and tornado activity, emerging within days of major solar events. [15, 31]
