I don't think sunscreen's gonna help....

Nasa scientists braced for 'solar tsunami' to hit earth:

Experts said the wave of supercharged gas will likely reach the Earth on Tuesday, when it will buffet the natural magnetic shield protecting Earth.
It is likely to spark spectacular displays of the aurora or northern and southern lights.
Scientists have warned that a really big solar eruption could destroy satellites and wreck power and communications grids around the globe if it happened today.
Nasa recently warned that Britain could face widespread power blackouts and be left without critical communication signals for long periods of time, after the earth is hit by a once-in-a-generation “space storm”.
And the oceans are dying:
Phytoplankton Population Drops 40 Percent Since 1950

Researchers find trouble among phytoplankton, the base of the food chain, which has implications for the marine food web and the world's carbon cycle
And our economic future is diminishing. Deflation could be coming. Republicans could take back Congress.

Our cereal could be poisoned with unknown chemicals.

But all is not lost! Buy gold! Glenn Beck says it's the thing to do!
