I’m quite sure if we create a new tax and funnel it through the UN everything will be fine.

And also suspend the Constitution (except for the First Amendment, at least as it pertains to the MSM). Also, we must stop all free market activity, at least in the United States.

If we do these things, the Sun will go back to normal.

Sunspot activity has consistantly been far below predicted numbers for the entire current solar cycle.

The sun is normal. Nothing much is happening. So now I have to worry that the sun is NORMAL. Does it ever end?

I am getting so tired.

It’s the budget cuts. We can’t afford to keep it running anymore.

"It’s obviously burning out."

Time for a squiggly shaped sun now.

Maybe all those black solar panels staring back at the sun have weakened it. They sucked the life out of it like a vampire.

We will know in about another 6 months. Either the cycle will trend up into a second peak, or it will continue to trend down.

If it trends down, then we will be in a Dalton-type minimum. In that case, expect colder weather, crop failures, higher food prices, and famine.

I guess NASA scientist aren’t as smart as they make out to be. They’ve been wrong about everything else, why should this be different?
