Laugh or Cry? The Real Chaos Cloud Story

Read what happens to the blog Proof Through the Night when he links to the Weekly World News article about the chaos cloud heading for earth devouring everything in its path.
But Dr. Albert Sherwinski is making Sitemeter's numbers spin like the scoreboard on Tommy's pinball machine. And it scares me.
Apparently many people aren't paying attention that yahoo syndicates Weekly World News articles for their entertainment section. Never mind that the article contains rather blatant mathematical inaccuracies. Are people really freaking the hell out over such obvious funny business?

Now what is interesting, is that the New Scientist posted an article entitled Galactic dust storm enters Solar System which states:
The Sun's shifting magnetic field is set to focus a decade-long storm of galactic dust grains towards the inner Solar System, including Earth.

The effect this will have on our planet - if any - is unknown. But some researchers have speculated that sustained periods of cosmic dust bombardment might be related to ice ages and even mass extinctions.

During the last decade, the magnetic field of the Sun acted like a shield, deflecting the electrically charged galactic dust away from the Solar System. However, the Sun's regular cycle of activity peaked in 2001.

As expected, its magnetic field then flipped over, so that south became north and vice-versa. In this configuration, rather than deflecting the galactic dust, the magnetic field should actually channel the dust inwards. [...]
I posted this article some time ago, and I have received no search engine hits regarding such things. A real story, with a real threat, and almost no play.

Instead, we have a piece written as entertainment and spoof, which merely distracts from real threats, and it generates a real buzz.

It seems to me that not only are we seeing a huge growing divide between the rich and poor due to Bush's fiscal policies, but also a huge growing divide between those who have been educating themselves about reality and those who are somehow becoming dumber.

The emails I receive in response to this blog show there are people paying attention, and that does give one some small hope.
