I agree 100%! I have noticed it, well starting last year and now this year, yes the sun is very different...
I grew up in SoCal and Hawaii, have been in the sun my whole life, tanned as brown as a berry, no wrinkles at 45, either.
I have taken to staying out of the sun if I can help it, because I take this as a warning.... our whole solar system is changing/evolving. As hard as it is to change, I'd say just stay out of the sun, and if you like a golden glow, get a spray on tan. I just decided to go au natural, pale is better than fried chicken.
Tanned with no wrinkles at 45? Are you available for some shadey activity?
Seriously though, your personal experinece and observations adds to the mystery. If the emergency rooms start getting overwhelmed i'm sure it will become mainstream news.

Oh yeah, because the position of the Earth and its tilt have soooo much bearing on solar surface activity..
Congratulations, you've written one of the stupidest posts, if not THE stupidest post I've read on ATS. Bravo.

Seriously, though, our sun speaks to us, we should kindly listen

Record temps huh?
Over here we are having insane amounts of rain. I think I've only seen about 2 sunny days in the past 90 days. My power goes out every other day. It only goes out 1-2 times a year normally. Flash flood warnings nearly everyday.
It should be at least 80 degrees to 90 by now, I mean comon its july, middle of summer. It'll hit the upper 70's then a storm will come through and we're back to the 60's again. Brrr
So I can't say much about the sun, as we never see it over here in New England.
Being the divas that they are, songbirds don’t like noise. Urban birds have been known to alter their songs to be heard above the racket — making them shorter, higher pitched or louder, or changing their patterns.
But how about singing at night, when cities are quieter? Many birds that normally sing during the day have been observed singing at night. The culprit has usually been thought to be light, cities being so bright at night that the birds stop chirping later or start earlier.
Now a study of European robins in Sheffield, England, suggests that it is noise, not light, that drives these birds to sing at night.
The study, by Richard A. Fuller and colleagues at the University of Sheffield, measured noise levels and singing at 67 sites around the city, where on average ambient noise was an order of magnitude lower at night than during the day. They found that birds sang only during the day at 49 of the sites, and both day and night at 18. Daytime noise levels at these 18 sites were significantly higher than those at the others.
The researchers, whose study is published in Biology Letters, also measured nighttime light levels and found that increased light was only a weak predictor of nocturnal singing. Noise was by far the dominant effect.
