• Download Sonnen-Katastrophe: Eine kosmische Schicksalsbeziehung by Lawrence E. Joseph PDF

    By Lawrence E. Joseph

    Ist die Sonne die treibende Kraft in der Geschichte der Menschheit? Müssen wir uns darauf gefasst machen, dass sie unsere Zukunft in entscheidender Weise bestimmt? Ja, sagt der Fachmann Lawrence E. Joseph, denn wir beenden uns inmitten eines massiven und außerordentlich langen Sonnensturms. Und speedy jeder Aspekt des Lebens auf unserem Planeten ist von physikalischen Änderungen in und auf der Sonne abhängig. Schlägt unser Zentralgestirn weiter Kapriolen, kann jederzeit eine Katastrophe von biblischen Ausmaßen über uns hereinbrechen ?
    Es ist eine gesicherte, allerdings weithin verdrängte wissenschaftliche Erkenntnis: Ein einziger Energiestoß der Sonne kann ausreichen, um unsere Zivilisation auszulöschen. Lawrence E. Joseph verfolgt die Aktivität unseres Zentralgestirns seit Menschenbeginn ? und kommt zu erstaunlichen Ergebnissen: Abrupte Veränderungen in und auf der Sonne gehen nicht nur mit einem gravierenden klimatischen Wandel einher. Sie begleiten auch entscheidende Entwicklungssprünge der menschlichen Zivilisation. Ein packendes Buch, das über eine entscheidende Einflussgröße der menschlichen Existenz aufklärt und wachsam werden lässt: Wie können wir unser Leben und unsere Gesundheit vor den zu erwartenden Änderungen der Sonnenaktivität schützen? Und wie schaffen wir es, die technische Infrastruktur zu sichern, die für unseren Alltag unerlässlich ist?
