    The solar cycle has begun, yes. That’s why astronomers are talking so much about sunspots. But we’ll only have reasons to worry by 2012, when solar activity will reach its peak.You don’t have to worry, we’ve been through many many solar cycles before, and although there’s some danger associated to maximum solar activity, it never destroyed our planet. It has only interfered with communications. So, I guess not, it’s not synonym of “the end”

    nothing much, since it tends to happen (if i remember correctly) in a 11-year cycle
    unless you were born yesterday, you've already experienced several of those cycles in your lifetime

    Have you not been watching the sun lately? There has been pretty much NO sunspots, and very little activity.

    go to www.spaceweather.com if you don't have high enough rated welding glass to look at it yourself, very good website, they track just about everything.
