LOL! Oh that's good. First, this article is more than a year old. Secondly, scientists long-ago calculated the chemical composition of the sun and
the rates at which hydrogen is converted to helium. There's enough hydrogen for another 5 billion years.
As far as the internal temperature change, until I see it somewhere else, I don't buy it. There are bound to be fluctuations in the core temperature,
but the relative thermal equilibrium has more or less been maintained since the creation of this system. Coronal ejections are part of the thermal
balancing processes in the sun.
Granted, some sun spot clusters have merged recently and we’ve experienced some coronal ejections that peaked in the X-scale, but nothing that would
indicate the type of fear-mongering WWN put together here. Now if we start seeing new holes in the ozone, then we could have problems with more
X-class flares. But I don’t think the sun is going to explode anytime soon. We’ve got at least another 5 billion years…
