I swear I have been saying for a long time now that the sun is too bright, I too remember the days when I could look at the sun through my squinted eyes and see an orange ball, now when you try to look, you can't, you can't even look near the sun it is so blindingly bright, its color is pure white.
Good thread S&F

Oh man !, I just came back home and went straight to ATS to check your results with the prism. Brother, you gotta stop this "I remember the sun...." thing.
I don't understand how is possible to remember if the sun had a different color 10 or 20 years ago (unless we were talking about really opposite colors), but maybe all these brothers and sisters are right and new age has began.

I know the lack of Vitamin D causes weight gain, which I've noticed not only with myself but with others around me, but is the Vitamin D carried in the Red light ban?
Cholecalciferol Forms In The Skin
Cholecalciferol is formed in the skin when ultraviolet light of the correct wavelength, UVB, strikes bare skin. Enormous quantities of cholecalciferol are rapidly made in the skin if: the sun is high in the sky (midday and the summer season), your skin is not covered by clothes or sunblock, you stay in the sun until your skin just begins to turn pink (not red), you are not behind glass. Glass blocks virtually all UVB, preventing vitamin D from being made.

I think everything is a theory......on that note, I have been in construction for the past 10 yrs and I work outside every single day. I am a very observant aquarius, and I have been telling my girlfriend almost everyday now for the past yr that something isnt right....or should I say, things are changing. Everything I am reading in these comments are exactly what I have been noticing. The day may be beautiful and warm, but the sun has been glowing white and extremely hot on the skin. Those who are truly aware and can observe things for what they are can see the changes happening........

All broadcasts follow Red Green Blue frequencies. Whoops. Not now. They phased that out. We went digital. Television screens use Red Blue Green to make all colors through triangulation, and we’re all using different screens now. Flat screens, LCD, etc. In the UK, they want to put radio on digital waves as well.
I can only comment on the above portion of this ridiculous post.
All broadcasts follow red blue green frequencies? What the hell does that mean? Let's have a little lesson on color, shall we? And please, someone feel free to elaborate as I may come up short on my explanation.
There are two types of color I will talk about. The first is the type you see when you look at a painting or a photograph. Physical media like these produce color by reflecting light from a light source back to the eye. If you see something that looks green, the media is absorbing all of the visible frequencies except green. Reflected color is referred to as "subtractive" color. This means that you start off with primary colors, then as you add other colors, the media (paint) becomes darker. Red and blue make purple. Yellow and red make orange. Red, green and blue make brown. Got it?
Now, televisions reproduce colors by projecting light from a light source. That light source is filtered through picture elements (pixels) of three primary colors: Red, Green and Blue. Projected color is ADDITIVE. This means that if you mix red, green and blue together at the same intensity, you get WHITE light. Also, some newer HDTVs are adding a yellow pixel to the color space to reproduce yellows better, which has always been a weakness of the RGB color space. Anyway. Both CRTs and flat screens reproduce color the same way. The only difference is in the mechanical assemblies used. Digital or analog - it's still the same.
I have no idea what the OP is trying to say, and it makes absolutely NO sense. If sunlight is reaching earth in a slightly shifted color spectrum than last year, it wouldn't make a damn bit of difference to a TV set. If something is happening, I would think that it would affect TVs, and it aint.
Man I am getting off track, but i just want to know who is giving this thread so many stars and flags?
As a postscript, Broadcast TV went digital for several reasons: It's better picture quality; It uses less RF spectrum; You can squeeze digital channels closer together in the RF spectrum with no crosstalk. Analog was hogging so much spectrum that there was no room left for new wireless devices - cellphones, crackberries, new devices yet to hit the market. Also, for many years TV stations were simulcasting in analog AND digital, hogging even MORE spectrum. Once they killed analog broadcasts, it opened up huge blocks of spectrum for these new devices. And it all has nothing to do with the world shifting frequencies, which is one of the most ridiculous theories lacking in any proof that I read on this site. Seriously, there is more evidence of UFOs and Jesus having risen from the dead than this new age baloney.

Someone catch me up if sunlight data from present has been compared to data from say, 30 years ago ?
Global dimming is the gradual reduction in the amount of global direct irradiance at the Earth's surface that was observed for several decades after the start of systematic measurements in the 1950s. The effect varies by location, but worldwide it has been estimated to be of the order of a 4% reduction over the three decades from 1960–1990. However, after discounting an anomaly caused by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991, a very slight reversal in the overall trend has been observed. It is thought to have been caused by an increase in particulates such as sulfate aerosols in the atmosphere due to human action. Global dimming has interfered with the hydrological cycle by reducing evaporation and may have reduced rainfall in some areas. Global dimming also creates a cooling effect that may have partially masked the effect of greenhouse gases on global warming. Deliberate manipulation of this dimming effect is now being considered as a geoengineering technique to reduce the impact of global warming.
