CME Means Trouble

It is a lovely warm day, much like summer and the sun is shining. We are all, well almost all, happy, not least because it will reduce the electric or other bills for heating.

The sun is not always quite so friendly, in fact it can turn quite nasty. This article, longish and complicated reminds us of this.

It says we had a near miss on 23 July 2012. Whether that was the Carrington Event, a CME, Coronal Mass Ejection, hitting the earth, that is alleged to be due is an issue for debate.

There are some advantages, you won't have to worry about the emails etc., or indeed the TV or radio.

But you might have to fight the neighbours for food and water.
