We need to have all of our grid ready for the big one. We need to have back up equipment ready to go on a moments notice buried underground. While the recovery wouldn't be quick its better that not being prepared and being stuck in the dark for decades. Millions if not billions will die and we're seemingly doing nothing to prepare?

You are such an armature.

The way it works in the US is, you wait till a crisis occurs, then blame Trump and the GOP, and then you use the crisis to implement some sort of legislative cure that is wide sweeping and changes the very fabric of society into a Left wing social engineering model of some sort.


Then wash, rinse, and repeat.

In the interim, all that can be done is try to set the stage for the next crisis, but doing such things as stopping the Key Stone pipeline, and returning the US from energy independence to dependence, and getting as many people on wind power so they can freeze to death in inclement weather, etc.

Shit...Texas couldn't even prepare for a snowstorm and you want to prepare for a solar flare storm?

What penny pinching Republican is going to go along with that?

The dangers are overstated by the doomsday folks.

We should have been burying our grid for years now but no one wants to pay for it. The typical problem. Should have been converting electric to hydrogen storage during non peek hours along of a slew of other things we should have been doing. Also should require government computer parts be built in the USA. All this requires regulation and money. You try to accomplish this shit and people scream socialism. Big things require big support. We are divided so bad nothing gets done. Don't see it changing anytime soon.
