1. I understand that you recently wrote an article called, “400 Chernobyls!” Could this really happen?
  2. What is a solar flare and why should I be concerned?
  3. I understand that on June 19, 2014 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) adopted a “Reliability Standard for Geomagnetic Disturbance Operations”. I also understand that in 2010 report, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory concluded that a severe solar storm could leave 130 million Americans without power for 1-2 years. In the event of an extreme solar storm, will this new regulation protect our grid, or is your opinion that this is a do-nothing “feel good” regulation designed to lull us into thinking our electric grid is protected from solar storm related damage?
  4. I have heard a lot of scary things said about EMP, but have also heard that some scientists say these concerns are way overblown. What is the truth about EMP?
  5. What is the difference between a solar flare, a solar storm, and an EMP?
  6. I understand that small solar storms strike our planet every year, that the most recent extreme solar storm hit the earth in 1921, and the one before that struck in 1859. Records indicate that even though most of the planet’s evening skies were lit up with incredible multicolored auroras during these two extreme geomagnetic disturbances (GMD), they apparently caused few major problems on the planet. What makes today’s situation so different from that of 90 and 150 years ago?
  7. Are you personally more concerned about an EMP or an extreme solar storm?
  8. You claim that a super solar storm is 100% guaranteed to happen. Why is this so, and how much time do you think we have before the next one strikes?
  9. What are the chances that a super solar storm would cause melt downs in many of America’s 104 nuclear reactors?
  10. What are the chances that an EMP would cause melt downs in many of America’s 104 nuclear reactors?
  11. What can I do to help my country prepare to cope with an extreme solar storm or EMP?
  12. What can I do to help my family prepare to cope with an extreme solar storm or EMP?
  13. Is it true that for the price of a single B2 bomber America could implement a program to avert the worst effects of an extreme solar storm or EMP attack, such as extended grid collapse and a nuclear Armageddon resulting from most of our country’s reactors melting down spontaneously?
  14. If so, why have we not taken these precautions?
  15. If the situation is really so dire, why have our leaders not taken action?
  16. How could our country protect itself from the worst effects of an extreme solar storm or EMP attack, and why would this discourage such an attack?
