Is this the usual scare-mongering by scientific institutions seeking funds? Or is it a real threat?
From NewScientist.com Space storm alert: 90 seconds from catastrophe
Best, Hans H.J. Labohm
Hans L, V good to hear you,
The Earth lies WITHIN the extended solar corona and Coronal mass ejections mentioned, of various sizes, hit the Earth on a regular basis - major ones every year or so. The article is fanciful alarmism, on the drivel scale of 0 to 10 it scores 9.5..
Its appearance shows the general degradation of science journalism which is now mostly very little about science and more about brainwashing, scare-mongering and wowing about nothing.
It is interesting the New 'Scientist' prints such drivel about the sun yet refuse point blank to cover any of our solar-based forecasts, ground-breaking research, proven successes or extreme events and climate forecasts
