Did you know that in 2012 a solar storm narrowly missed earth? A solar storm, otherwise known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) can fry satellites and affect power grids. A direct hit could have a catastrophic effect on the world’s power. As in, the power going out for months. Long enough that even the toilets would stop working since the water treatment plant runs on electricity.
Think the chances of this happening are slim? You might be right. I don’t tend to worry about doomsday scenarios myself. But then again, I get frustrated with a power outage that lasts overnight.Photo Credit: ID 10814982 © Patrimonio Designs Limited | Dreamstime.com
