    I was just trying to put the potential damage in perspective. the One term president Obama is doing about 1.6 trillion in damage to our economy every year. If a solar flare did hit the Earth it could do about a trillion in damage. Obama's policies are more damaging every year than a one time flare might be.

    Tin foil hats are a government conspiracy to get you to amplify their signals.
    Tin foil hats are supposedly able to block out the aliens (from space..not mexico) ability to read thoughts. Think X-Men with Prof Xavier vs Magneto. The reason that Magneto wore that helmet was to stop Xavier from reading his thoughts and controling his mind.

    New M9 solar flare is expected today (if it isn't here already), so watch out.

    Can the clouds do as much damage as this regime?

    Are they recommending SPF 30 or 50?

    Re: Massive solar flare

    There is only one solar flare that I am interested in right now. It's the star Betelgeuse. It has now begun to implode and will go supernova sometime between this year and 500 years from now. I am hoping sooner than later. When it does go, we will have a second sun in the sky for weeks that will be about the brightness of a full moon. Yes, we will take a direct hit from that supernova, but in order to be dangerous to mankind, it would have to be 25 light years or less from us. Betelgeuse is about 600 light years from us, so all we will get is a burst of harmless neutrinos, and a spectacular light show. Just to give you an idea of how large Betelgeuse is, the Hubble telescope was able to take a picture of it, not as a point of light, but actually resolved into a disk. If it were where the sun is right now, it's diameter would extend almost all the way out to the orbit of Jupiter. It is absolutely huge, and when it goes, we are going to see the kind of light show that happens only once in a millennium. This one will make the supernova that created the Crab Nebula seem like child's play. Before I die, I have one wish... I want to see this.
