Sun blasting electricity grids would be ‘bad’

SCIAM is again repeating the fact that a good enough solar storm could help delay global warming… by crashing the economic activity and power grids that cause it!

“If the world’s transformers are destroyed, you can’t just buy new ones off the shelf. Lose electricity and you can’t purify water, can’t treat sewage, can’t pump oil, you can’t refrigerate anything, communications, satnav and the internet go – it is Armageddon-type stuff.”
