[io9]Two gigantic holes rip open the Sun

This image, snapped by the Japanese probe Hinode on February 1, looks way more terrifying than it actually is. Most of the top half of the Sun seems to have fallen into a massive black hole, but it's not quite that dramatic. It's actually a coronal hole, a gigantic opening that allows the Sun to vent excess gas. Still, I'd feel a lot better about this if there wasn't another gigantic hole down at the Sun's south pole. NASA explains just what we're looking at here:

Take that global warming...we are gonna die before it ever takes effect. *laughs at eco-friendly neighbor*

Though I am curious it says
"Still, I'd feel a lot better about this if there wasn't another gigantic hole down at the Sun's south pole."
My question is why is he worried if its just venting gas? Afraid the space version of a lighter is gonna roast us?
