Prayers to the Sun. Could it happen within our lifetime? A mini-ice age? For the last couple of years we've been hearing about "global warming" but "global cooling" might actually be a real possibility. For the last month or so the Sun hasn't produced any sunspots. While this might not be as alarming for the average "Joe the plumber" on the streets...many of us already see the connection. Who will be best person to break the news of impending doom to the world? McCain or Obama? We are inclined to gravitate towards the "cooler" of the two. For Obama that might be a good thing. But don't tell the Sun to be cool, because that's exactly what it's doing. So is the Mayan prophecy correct? So far it's looks that way. We at least know for now, well- according to NASA at least- that the Sun has stopped producing sunspots. Obama joked last nite, suggesting he was "Superman"- yet not even Superman can jump-start the Sun...or can he? Are Solar Cycles anything to worry about? What's the worst that can happen? Solar Cycles & Civilizations (Scroll bottom for parts 2-12) If we are indeed heading into a mini-ice age, it seems like it does make sense to move back to Africa after all. Or at least to the warmest climates on the planet. Still the effects on modern life would be unprecedented, there have been mini-ice ages before that in fact changed living standards forever. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Ice_Age But the Sun doesn't just effect weather on Earth, but even our brains are connected. Our personalities, our character are all influenced by the health of that red orange globe out there in space. The "Soul" of our galaxy.
