Oh, boy....wonder what the loonies will do when they here about this...
ZOMG! ZOMBIES!! TEOTWAWKI!!!
But then again, it doesn't have the media value of "Carrington Events" (Remember "Ellie" from "Deep Impact"?) that never occurred, or "Massive CME Ready To Wipe Out Humanity", or any of the other pseudo-science that the products of the public "education" system take as Gospel from the 6pm Talking Heads that can't even see through a bad joke about Asian aircraft pilot names.
Anyway....go here to read the article. This is nothing new, and is associated with the Sun's activity during the solar cycle.
