As If Things Couldn't Get Worse, The Sun Has 'Gone Blank' And Could Wipe Out The Internet
The last week has felt apocalyptic, there are no two ways about it.
But if we *try* to step back, breathe and separate ourselves from the turmoil of British politics, economics and well, humanity (just for a minute) there are still other things worth paying attention to.
LIke the climate. And the magic ball of fire that burns from afar and keeps us all living and breathing.
The sun. The sun is the most important thing in the world ever, fact, and we have some bad news. It's 'gone blank'.
'But I can see it'! You're whispering. 'It's right there!'
Yep, but apparently not for long. Deep breaths everyone, here are the facts:
*For the second time this month, the sun has gone 'completely blank'.
*The blank sun is a sign that the next solar minimum is approaching - this could trigger a new 'little Ice Age'.
Here's some stuff from a scientist:
"We have plenty of reason to believe that, despite the waning solar activity, something large could still be looming.
The oft-cited “Carrington Event” in 1859 occurred during a relatively weak solar cycle. This massive geomagnetic storm was one of the largest ever recorded. It spawned aurorae as far south as the Caribbean. If a storm of this magnitude occurred today, it could wipe out electricity, Internet and all of the technology that relies on those things for weeks or even months across an entire continent."
Oh GOOD. At least we won't have to read anymore terrible news headlines. Perhaps this is the best thing for us - we could start a new age, begin again, live free of binge-watching and the Kardashians. Or, we'll all be dead, so we won't care either way. Sounding kind of good right now, huh? See you in the bunker (but don't forget to download all the new Orange Is The New Black first, mind. We'e going to need somethign to do for the next 200 years).
