Umm. No. It's not a scientific fact. But, you can certainly present evidence if you wish to assert that it is. I recommend steering clear of outdated NASA predictions which INITIALLY put the solar maximum in 2012, though, or sensationalized mainstream media accounts dressed up to make the story more "dramatic". You know... like something current from NASA/NOAA, or a peer reviewed source.
"Solar storm" is a meaningless term, scientifically speaking. It's often equated to Coronal Mass Ejections, but its meaning has become muddied by using it to refer to all manner of solar phenomenon, including but not limited to the solar maximum.
The Solar Maximum, by the way, is what has been predicted, not for 2012, but for May 2013, and of weaker intensity than the last one. THIS is the phenomenon which occurs on an approximately 11.5-12 year cycle.
Solar flares, and coronal mass ejections, meanwhile, cannot be predicted that far ahead. Doubtlessly, there will be some in 2012, and 2013, and in the worst case scenario they can cause temporary damage to the power grid at high latitudes. But they are not RARE events. They happen on a regular basis, even in/around the solar MINIMUM. We had a significant "solar storm" back in August, in the form of a CME with a Moreton Wave. Did you even notice?
