World heating up while sun dims, story at eleven

Posted on April 23, 2009 by


Hmm, so sun’s activity is very low… and it isn’t offsetting global warming. Maybe the Mayans were right and 2012 is it?

Somehow I’m not quite ready to run up the credit cards and start the “End of the World” party yet! 😉

If it weren’t for this quote, I’d think we might have a chance…

“Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.”
Bill Watterson (1958 – ), cartoonist, ‘Calvin and Hobbes’

Maybe if we could convince Richard Dreyfuss to sit on a remote mountaintop and play a corny tune on an organ, they might decide to drop by??? Or perhaps a trail of Reese’s Pieces could lure them down???

What I really think we need to do is boost funding to the interstellar tourism departments. More flashy billboards in the distant galaxies describing an entire planet ripe for a truly intelligent species to come and take over before we ruin it with oil spills, CO2, and land fills topped up with discarded Barbie dolls. 😉
