„Our earth is warmed by a gigantic nuclear fireball, millions of times the mass of earth and a mere 8.5 light-minutes away. One hundred and nine Earths would be required to fit across the Sun's disk, and its interior could hold over 1.3 million Earths. … You can't just ignore that kind of power. Though it seems some prefer to, since it muddles the results they seek.“
