Speaking Of Blame...

Reuters reports:

Sun-spawned cosmic storms that can play havoc with earthly power grids and orbiting satellites could be 50 percent stronger in the next 11-year solar cycle than in the last one, scientists said on Monday.

Some how, some way, the rabid environmentalists will find away to blame this on America and the evil, capitalist polluters.

I can already hear the calls for us to reduce our dependence on solar radiation. They will say that because America demands so much of our gravitational anchor that the sun is over compensating and increasing its output.

Al Gore will be leading the charge to save the solar system from industrialized nations.

Ok, maybe that's a little over the top, but given the sheer idiocy of that crowd it wouldn't surprise me in the least if someone attempted to make a case for blaming us for solar activity.
