I'll See Your Global Warming...

And raise you one Death Star.

A Star primed to explode in a blast that could wipe out the Earth was revealed by astronomers yesterday.

It will self-destruct in an explosion called a supernova with the force of 20 billion billion billion megatons of TNT.

New studies show the star, called T Pyxidis, is much closer than previously thought at 3,260 light-years away - a short hop in galactic terms.

So the blast from the thermonuclear explosion could strip away our ozone layer that keeps out deadly space radiation. Life on Earth would then be frazzled.

So we give up our sovereignty, completely trash our economy, give up all of our modern conveniences and save the polar bear and some not so distant as once thought star explodes and wipes out our atmosphere leaving the cockroach the highest life form on earth. Yeah, that sounds about right.
