maybe the Mayans were onto something
Yes, they were. Who would ave thought that a civilization that put a lot of effort into astronomy and based their calendar (a repeating cycle that has ended more than once) off of astrological events would have astrological events at important times in their calendar. In other news, scientists are say Wednesday will still come after Tuesday in leap years!

Al Gore is a media whore who tried to scare the sh.. out of us by making predictions that were way too soon, which doesn't mean that they are false. What he said will happen, but you've got to wait for it.
It's not as if this didn't happen before, the earth has been way hotter before we were here, it's just that it's coming out of an ice age way too quickly for it to be healthy for the planet.
I think that is the closest anybody has ever gotten to what I believe to be correct. Now put quotation marks around "Global Warming" because the name is stupid and probably wrong and your all set.

The world is not going to end and that article is completely sensationalized
Not too sensationalized though. They do mention IF a super massive perfect storm version of a CME comes out it could cost people lots of money because of power outages. Remember when the whole Eastern seaboard lost power? Probably be like that. Stock market goes down for a few days. Weirdos freak out. Then I get bored because the internet and cable is out and I go get drunk and build a fire in my back yard. Good news though? I might not have to go to work!
Remember everybody though, that is the WORST case scenario. That is right. The worst case scenario is a few days off work with no internet.
