Is a sunstorm blowing in? By BILL McAULIFFE, Star Tribune Last update: December 8, 2008 – 9:37 AM The long-term space forecast is calling for gusts of charged particles – and possible power disruptions. It’s not the ache in their joints that tells Mark Engebretson and David Murr the weather’s about to change. It’s sunspots.

Geoengineering is not a new concept. Governments have changed how and where water flows, filled in lakes and other wetlands for construction, even attempted to control the weather. A project to counter climate change, however, would take geoengineering
