The International Space Weather Initiative
Posted on 11/08/2010 12:03:40 PM PST by Kartographer
Prompted by a recent increase in solar activity, more than a hundred researchers and government officials are converging on Helwan, Egypt, to discuss a matter of global importance: storms from the sun. The First Workshop of the International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI) meets Nov. 6th through 10th and is convened by the United Nations, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
"Strong solar storms can knock out power, disable satellites, and scramble GPS," says meeting organizer and ISWI executive director Joe Davila of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. "This meeting will help us prepare for the next big event."

But we've been told for 40 years now that it was OUR fault that the climate was getting hotter/colder.
Who left the stove on at the Sun?!!

'One Second After'
At the suggestion of a FReeper a few months ago (perhaps it was you), I read that book. Good story and an easy read too.

Not enough activity to cause a panic, but the most activity in a couple of years.

Guess they’ve given up on the global warming hoax, figuring too many people don’t buy it any more.
On to the next money making scam!
