    If (when) another 1859 event occurs we won't have much time to react. Would pulling the plug on the grid(s) just before a massive CME hits help prevent most of the damage?

    I doubt that burning more coal will protect the grid from CMEs

    True, we should protect against CMEs while at the same time incorporating more gentle expressions of the Sun's power into our grid where climate permits.

    We can reduce energy used that might help like make battery's charge more faster on phones and computers and not focus so much on electric cars because I feel it's using way to much energy
