It’s the stuff of science fiction. A strong blast of energy from outer space knocks out electricity over much of the planet, imperiling millions of lives.

Well, a new ice age, the shrinking ozone layer and globull warming didn’t pan out. So I was waiting for the next surefire scheme to doom all of mankind.

Great, one more thing to distract from the real issues facing this country and prey on fear. I do think there is a climate change issue but this is a little much. Anyone who thinks our population and the chemicals we pump into the atmosphere do not have an adverse affect on the climate is fooling themselves but this sort of thing doesn’t do anything to help matters.

This is fear mongering. It’s a waste of time to worry about things out of our control. Watch for a book, tv show, movie and speaking tour. Follow the money. Who is getting rich off this?

In the 1970′s, scientists were unable to convince Americans that smoking causes cancer.
In the 1960′s, scientists were unable to convince Americans that DDT was harmful to human health.
In the 1940′s, scientists were unable to convince Americans that blood types came from parents.
In 1692, scientists were unable to convince Americans that witches do not exist.
In the 1640′s, scientists were unable to convince people that the earth revolved around the sun.
The reason we have cell phones and have had a man on the moon is science. Nuclear energy, science. Jet engines, science. But heaven forbid if good scientists tell us things we don’t like, like “cigarettes and DDT cause cancer, humans arose from natural selection, there are no witches, the sun does not revolve around the earth, … and there are things like global warming and solar storms that will cause major problems over the next few hundred years.”
America needs better science and math education. Calculus, Physics, and Statistics 101 should be required for high school graduation (other countries are clearly beating us in science education). People need to be challenged academically now so they can become good citizens later.
