So absolutely true is the line . . . . . . "It is just a matter of time"....

And it only speculation as to how "severe" that solar storm will be.

What to add ? . . another case of pork & beans . . . .and a manual can opener......

And a bucket to catch the rain........

I don't particularly worry about EMPs. It is my opinion, based on no research whatsoever, that an EMP might just solve more problems that do concern me, than it causes. YMMV

Here is a website dedicated to the top 10 list of the most likely doomsday scenarios. See if there is one on the list that you may have never heard of.

Here is another site that proclaims to have identified the 10 most overlooked doomsday scenarios. My favorite is #4, "the nanotechnology nightmare". That one would be completely on mankind for having created. No ducking responsibility for that one.

CME (solar) and EMP (manmade) are entirely different animals. I'm more concerned about EMP due to the crazy people running countries who hate us. Some, like Iran, would even invite retaliation due to their religious beliefs.

A CME, although virtually guaranteed, has to have everything exactly perfect to harm us. Imagine someone spinning a merry-go-round with a 22, shooting randomly in every direction possible, if you're standing 200 yards away the chances of getting hit are pretty slim.

When they're talking about massive eruptions on the sun it's interesting, but keep in mind if there's one with our name on it we won't read about it. If we're really lucky we'll hear about it just before it hits.
