Something is wrong with the sun
Cosmologists and astronomers determine the
age of things like planets, stars and galaxies. And they use that data—the best
they have—to determine the age of Earth's sun.
They determined during the past century that
the sun's nearly 5 billion years old. Everyone was happy because according to
observations of other stars similar to the sun that meant the Earth's star
would last at least another several billion years.
That question settled, the scientists ate
well, slept well, and collected handsome honorariums for speaking engagements.
Everything was copasetic and the universe was
During 2010 three unprecedented events took
First, evidence emerged that the sun's core
is shrinking—an indication that it may be using up it's hydrogen fuel at a
faster rate than previously believed.
Unfortunately, when the thermonuclear
reactions at the core begin running out of hydrogen fuel, a star falls back on
the next available element it has to burn: helium. Once that process starts, a
star the size of our sun begins expanding and becomes a Red Giant.
No, it won't explode as a nova or supernova,
it doesn't have the mass. It will just swell up and up and vaporize Mercury,
Venus, Earth and Mars.
Second, astrophysicists discovered an unknown
type of solar particle was mutating matter on Earth. What is this
strange new particle? What are its properties? Why is the sun suddenly spitting
No one has a clue.
Accepted model of stars
Worst of all, recent observations of other
stars with the Hubble Space Telescope, and several European Space agency
telescopes, have confirmed that some stars like our sun suddenly begin
exhibiting inexplicable behavior—and then, with little warning, they rapidly
swell into Red Giants swallowing any nearby planets.
And now our sun is
acting oddly in ways never before seen.
The sun is exhibiting behavior that's
baffling scientists worldwide.
The terrible secret:
the sun's been cooling since 1979
While the world was hoodwinked with global
warming nonsense, the sun began cooling. It's continued to cool for the past 32
years. Now it's poised to cool much faster as it approaches the Maunder Minimum.
Astronomers confidently predicted the sun
would begin growing hotter again by 2007. When it continued to cool they rushed
back to their calculators to check the batteries.
Now the sun has entered its peak solar cycle,
causing fears of solar storms destroying fragile technology, while the actual
output can be charted and is still on a downward plunge.
How low can the solar output go? No one
knows. The last time it fell precipitously the interglacial period ended and an
Ice Age gripped the Northern Hemisphere for 100,000 years.
But it could be worse than that. If the sun
is truly dying ice will eventually creep over most of the planet. Seven billion
people will want to live at or near the Equatorial regions.
Discovery of 'mutating
For months mounting fear has driven
researchers to wring their hands over the approaching solar storms. Some have
predicted devastating solar tsunamis that could wipe away our advanced
technology, others voiced dire warnings that violent explosions on the surface
of the sun could reach out to Earth, breach our magnetic field, and expose
billions to high intensity UV-rays and other deadly forms of cancer-causing
