We know that the Sun has an effect on radioactive particles here on Earth. As the 2012 presidential election starts to heat up, we ask ourselves: Could the Sun also influence our politics? Russian scientist Alexander Chizhevsky proposed this theory in 1915: Solar storms, interacting with the Earth’s magnetic field, trigger conflict, wars and death by causing mass changes in human moods, emotions and behavioral patterns.

In the 1930s, researcher Raymond Wheeler, a professor at the University of Kansas, applied a numerically weighted ranking system to wars and battles, assessing them on length and severity. He then correlated the impressive data he’d amassed with the 11-year sunspot cycle–and found that Chizhevsky’s theory was valid: When the 11-year solar cycle peaked, so did uprisings, rebellions, revolutions and wars. Wheeler traced the pattern back through 2,500 years of human history. What does this day about our future? (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show and we’ll hold John Hogue’s feet to the fire–as usual–in June).

The sun entered its next active peak during late 2010 and suddenly the news was filled with revolutions in the Middle East. In Helium.com, Terrence Aym writes, "As the flares increase and the sun becomes more violent, expect greater violence on earth as some go mad." One of the BEST predictors of the future was the mysterious little man who burst into Whitley’s hotel room in Toronto in 1998, because so many of the things he said have subsequently been validated by science.
