I've been reading about solar flare this and solar flare that for years now, and they sound big and scary...but nothing ever happens. Nothing. That's why we have ozone and atmosphere. The earth is protected from that stuff. For a reason. Because the earth supports life.

End of story. Ok...putting tinfoil hat back on.

Suggest you look up the Carrington Event. Consider the implications for our modern electronic world.

I posted it as a jab at weather men. As their technology improves, the same storm intensities look worse that they did ten years ago.

Anyhow, seems the guy might be a fraud.

Actually they have a profound effect on anything that uses a magnetic compass. Ships, some airplanes, Boy Scouts, sub-surface vehicles like submarines and autonomously operated vehicles. Even affects GPS signals. Make sure you are looking when you make that sudden GPS turn!

I'm familiar with it. Nothing happened. It was a thing observed is all. We always have aurora borealis events. There is always a slight hole in the ozone. Weather is always up and down. The sun always shoots off flares , and I do not buy for one second that they affect anything, with the possible exception of radio transmissions from satellites. Even that would be minor.

But we have so called bright people down here telling us that our grid could be knocked out by a really bad flare. Or cell reception temporarily. I'm not a believer that our grid can be affected. We are protected by our ozone.

For me at least it's an end of story thing. But...the powers that be need reasons for raising prices. That's all it is.

Re-study. "Nothing happened" because it was in 1859. The most advanced electrical device of the time was the telegraph, and they were seriously messed with. Currents were set up in railroad tracks that were sufficient enough to cause fires. Telegraphers recieved serious shocks and electrical burns. Ticker tapes were set on fire. Telegraphs were able to transmit and receive to and from each other after being disconnected from their batteries.
A similar event today would destroy every unshielded non-tube based electronic device on the planet; even if it was not turned on or even plugged in. All that would be required to set up a destructive flux is a non-zero length cunductive connection. Transformers all over the world (including the big ones that already have years long waiting lists for replacement), would be fried. Basically picture the entire planet returned to the 19th century, and requiring years, maybe decades, to recover. Not a happy prospect. Remember the Northeastern blackout back in the winter of 1990? That was caused by a rather minor solar flare.

I have been through a few electric grid failures in my life. It's hard on city folks.
Yes it will happen again. So will a lot of other natural events. Worrying about it serves no useful purpose.

I just read NASA's recounting of the Carrington Event. In talking about possible effects of a similar event today, they use the terms "might" and "could". That's substantially different than "would".

I just hope I don't see myself when I go back in time to give myself the answers to that math test I failed in the third grade. Then we'd really have problems.
