    Charles and Lisa,
    
    There was a thread, sometime after early June, that touched on some of the
    topics you have introduced.  (How far after I can't recall).  Solar flares/
    \magnetic storms, auroras, the changes to the Earth's magnetic field, pole
    reversal etc.  You might want to check them out.  Some serious, some
    tongue-in-cheek.
    
    I don't recall the subject title of the thread.  Perhaps some of the other
    list members can help with that.
    
    Bill
