The team first confirmed a theory that the slight increase in solar energy during the peak production of sunspots is absorbed by stratospheric ozone. The energy warms the air in the stratosphere over the tropics, where sunlight is most intense, while also stimulating the production of additional ozone there that absorbs even more solar energy. Since the stratosphere warms unevenly, with the most pronounced warming occurring at lower latitudes, stratospheric winds are altered and, through a chain of interconnected processes, end up strengthening tropical precipitation.

Just get your shit together. Simple as that. 🙂

And yes, Politicians are assholes. But Newt Gingrich knows what he’s talking about on this, and this is what he has to say:

“A nuclear weapon could be detonated above North America, , and the resulting electronic interference would render the nation’s power grid, satellites, computers etc., useless. Death and mayhem would ensue. It would be a bit like “Mad Max,” but with less ’70’s hairdos”.

Even the sheepiest of sheeps will listen to the Discovery channel – that’s a fact.

Our poll of the experts has the EMP source being natural/manmade @ 50/50. Your mileage may vary.
