Fascinating. And I get it now; I was using "EMP" for shorthand of the electrical damage caused by a CME, and that's not right. (Cletus and his ground wire.)

I knew about the fragility of our power grid (went deeply into the research behind switching to a solar install career, about 10 years ago) and that Mother Nature has some infrequently used tools in the shop that could shred our infrastructure... and that was before JIT manufacturing, overnight shipping as a norm, and electric fleet vehicles...

Yikes.
