    Two Suns? Twin Stars Could Be Visible From Earth By 2012

    Dr. Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland, outlined the scenario to news.com.au. Betelgeuse, one of the night sky’s brightest stars, is losing mass, indicating it is collapsing. It could run out of fuel and go super-nova at any time.

    When that happens, for at least a few weeks, we’d see a second sun, Carter says. There may also be no night during that timeframe.

    So SUVs must make Cosmic Rays nothing else fits the ManMade Global Warming Climate Change Disruption Model

    This would be more impressive had he chosen to publish in Science or Nature, rather than The Register.

    Atmospheric physics: Cosmic rays, clouds and climate
    Ken Carslaw1

    Top of pageAbstractGalactic cosmic rays could influence Earth's cloudiness by creating aerosol particles that prompt cloud formation. That possible effect looks to be smaller than thought, but the story won't end there.

    Striking correlations have been observed between Earth's cloud cover and the flux of galactic cosmic rays entering our atmosphere. The decrease in galactic cosmic ray (GCR) flux by about 15% over much of the twentieth century has led to the hypothesis that GCRs could influence climate through their effect on cloudiness.

    I hope Betelguise goes super in my lifetime. That would be awesome (and harmless) to watch! It may have already exploded for all we know (what you see when you look at Orion is Betelguise about 600 years ago).

    I hope this guy is right.

    But I'm pretty sure he's bat-shit crazy instead :(
