I find the idea of galactical alignment very interesting. It stands to reason that the increased cosmic ray activity we are exposed to, as the solar system comes in to line with the disc of the milkyway, should have some kind of effect on us. In saying that though, a book I recently read (The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change. by Richard Gray), indicates through studies done, that the increased cosmic ray activity should have a cooling effect on our planet. It would be good to see more studies done in this area.
But Abdussamatov’s critics say the Red Planet’s recent thawing is more likely due to natural variations in the planet’s orbit and tilt. On Earth, these wobbles, known as Milankovitch cycles, are thought to contribute to the onset and disappearance ice ages.
“It’s believed that what drives climate change on Mars are orbital variations,” said Jeffrey Plaut, a project scientist for NASA’s Mars Odyssey mission. “The Earth also goes through orbital variations similar to that of Mars.”

anyone heard of the website Interplanetary Day After Tomorrow?
It might be disinfo, but it's one site that shows there are changes going on in the whole solar system not just Earth.

Im wondering how you can prepare for such a cataclysmic event. Yes possibly there may be a few hundred thousand left, but theres no knowing what mental or physical state they are in. Also the food supplies would be getting low, the earth im sure would be scorched with temperetures WAY above what we are used to. Infact we would probably rely on technology and machines alot more after this event has occured. Oxygen im sure would be at an all time low. If mankind did survive, they would then face many other difficulties. TPTB (not sure who they are) will have a hard time surviving in my opinion.

i just can not rationalize how a low-mass dwarf star still in the outer debris field of the Oort Cloud
could possibly be affecting the Sun & solar system right now...
unless there is an unknown relationship on a hyperdimensional plane at work...
where the distant object distorts the electromagnetic continium of the solar system through
a non-locality principle thought to exist at the Quantum Level.
i always thought an object must be physically present, to then effect the area its in.
the proposed dark dwarf is contorting the Suns magnet-o-sphere so as to result in the
heating up of the solar system and all its planets/moons ?
ScienceDaily (Mar. 21, 2003) — Since the late 1970s, the amount of solar radiation the sun emits, during times of quiet sunspot activity, has increased by nearly .05 percent per decade, according to a NASA funded study.
"This trend is important because, if sustained over many decades, it could cause significant climate change," said Richard Willson, a researcher affiliated with NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia University's Earth Institute, New York. He is the lead author of the study recently published in Geophysical Research Letters.
"Historical records of solar activity indicate that solar radiation has been increasing since the late 19th century. If a trend, comparable to the one found in this study, persisted throughout the 20th century, it would have provided a significant component of the global warming the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports to have occurred over the past 100 years," he said.
