What we may consider a problem could be the natural behavior of the sun. We don't really know how it behaves because the time we have been observing it is comparable to just a second of its lifetime. Remember, the sun is estimated to be about 4 billions years old. In that course of time, there are things the sun is going to do or already has done that we know nothing about because we have only been watching it hardly a fraction of it's lifespan.
But if there was a real problem, I am sure we would know about it, especially if it was dying...it would be big...red and huge...but that's after the huge explosion that we wouldn't survive of it shedding some of it's outter layers...

OK, What I am speaking of is the interaction of Dark matter, gravitationally, with the Baryonic Universe. Steven Baxter, a popular Science fiction writer, may have actually touched on some truth in his writing. He wrote that, Even though it may not be apparent to us, there is the possibility that a Non Baryonic Life form may exist in the Dark Matter portion of space-time. The effects of this would only be able to be detected through gravitional Interferance. I dont think that here is Life per se, but what he said may hold some truth. The Dark matter, as dark matter, would not be able to form solition stars, and so would end up using the gravity wells of Baryonic Stars. This May have a very impactive result on our sun. We have though, decected abnormal readings from instruments pointed at the sun, with abnormal decay in gamma, beta, and alpha particles. I'm continuing to research it. I'll keep Y'all updated.

So much for warm and secure. So we gotta walk on ice or what. If we so much as
as smile funny, or flippantly swap our magnetic pole, does the sun start throwing things at us?
This is in my lifetime? How do you handle Super Solar PMS? Should we back off
a bit or what?
