-The sun's magnetic field reverses its polarity once every 11 years or so -Flip represents a peak in solar activity where bursts of energy are released -These bursts can lead to space storms and changes to Earth's climate -Radio and satellite communications may also be affected

This is all unnecessary alarmism. We’ll notice exactly squat about this transition.

I’ve asked Libs what kind of SUV’s are on Mars causing their higher temps and they can’t answer. Many Libs know it’s a hoax but won’t admit it.

Physicists from Stanford University believe the Sun's magnetic fields will flip before the end of the year, reversing their polarity. This will cause an increase in solar energy and could lead to changes in climate and satellite disruption. The reversal happens once every 11 years or so.

For your list, ping!

Lets send about 20 Chevy Suburbans full of EPA eco-zealots to the sun. That’ll keep it from acting up all on its own without a permit.

Yes it is not accurately predictable. The duration of the cycle varies, the intensity of the maximum/minimum activity varies and there are irregularity in activity within the cycles. SO, their predictions are to be questioned.

It reads like a Michael Mann report:

Possibly...before a time specific...there could be a change...we may see the effects...which might be catastrophic...in a relative way.

No you silly goof, the global warming caused the sun to flip ;) I’m sure some PhD, overpaid, lifetime 6-figure pension professors can prove it to you.

Regulation through taxation. It's worked for decades. And we need the money.
