"The Earth has a roughly 12 percent chance of experiencing an enormous megaflare erupting from the sun in the next decade. This event could potentially cause trillions of dollars’ worth of damage and take up to a decade to recover from."
This came up during a book club meeting I attended earlier today, with wording and context geared to make it perhaps even more dramatic. But without any exaggeration, I guess this is actually pretty big.
On the other hand, easy enough to look around right now and think (perhaps correctly) that the Apocalypse is already going on. 100%.
