Of course we'll never hear any reason as to why so many surprise climate events...One advice..if you live next door to a computer guru or science geek and you see them loading up their polaris or golfcarts then ya'll better get the packing and follow the "told you so's" LOL
We could be in for a huge firework display in 2012. The Sun will be approaching the peak of its 11-year cycle, called “solar maximum”, so we can expect a lot of solar activity. Some predictions put the solar maximum of Solar Cycle 24 even more energetic than the last solar maximum in 2002-2003 (remember all those record breaking X-class flares?). Solar physicists are already getting excited about this next cycle and new prediction methods are being put to good use. But should we be worried?
