A year later and millions of Americans are dead and the nation's infrastructure lies in tatters. The World Bank declares America a developing nation. Europe, Scandinavia, China and Japan are also struggling to recover from the same fateful event - a violent storm, 150 million kilometres away on the surface of the sun.

You've got to laugh.

To quote from that very article: "It sounds ridiculous. "

New Scientist has dumbed down to the level of a Labour minister in recent years.

Should I panic now or have I got time to make a cup of tea first?

I think we would all be the better for a good cup of tea and an early night.

The New Scientist was always been just a popular science magazine IMO, or at least it was a decade ago and the stories seem much the same today as they were back then. I just flick through a copy at the local library every 6 months or so now.

My ex did her final year project (MPhys with Astronomy) on the potentially disasterous effects of CMEs. 10 years ago.

It doesn't sound like the doom has changed much since then.

what would be the magazine/online or print that is a step or two up from this?
I have not read but speculate that "Nature" or "Science" are too abstract/professional for me.

I am just an interested geek.

But according to tree huggers, the sun doesn't effect conditions on earth. Only me driving my car and cows f@rting too much does that - so where's the worry?
