Martian Solution

Interesting program on Nova last night for the apocalyptic millenialists. The program argues that we are headed for a hot future because of an apparent decline in our magnetic field. This could have a Martian like effect because the magnetic field acts as a umbrella for solar winds that if directly ecountering our atmosphere would burn it up. Ouch!

Our grim fulture?
