    It's only a matter of time. Just like yellow stone caldera, the even bigger volcano in the pacific, the big one out west or countless others. The only difference is that we can actually do something about a solar storm. We can harden the grid at a cost that is a fraction of our national spending.

    My thought - what if he's wrong; bad wrong, I mean even 'off by a factor of ten' kind of wrong...?

    Still looking at potentially 5 months to a year. Picture even a tenth of the world without power for anything approaching a half a year. Now picture it happening suddenly, with no warning (for most people at least), and with no way for those people to know how long that situation might drag out.

    Half a year to a year? That's a LONG honkin' time.

    ..and others worldwide highly dependent on the products of technology..

    Seems to me that a lot of people in sciences dealing with weather, geology, astronomy, etc., have found that the best way to generate funding and get publicity is with doom scenarios about extreme events that they need to be hired to monitor, predict or prevent.
