If the sun is expanding, would it not cause the same state as is now being attributed to the green-house effect? Danger of intense ultraviolet radiation? A depletion of the ozone layer? An increase in global temperatures? This last, I find hard to believe as I live in Canada, any increase in global temperatures would be a welcome relief up here. Try OUR winters. Oh yes, as an after thought. The last two years have been rather soggy down in your mid southern areas. I would like to think that Nature is trying to restore the depleted water tables. By the way, where I live in Quebec we get flooded out quite frequently durring the spring thaw. We often leave home by boat.
Thanks for reading and hope I to hear from you soon.

Respectfuly Kenneth G. Johnson
