If a Solar Storm of that magnitude Combat Shooter System were to hit the earth today, it could cripple our culture and in effect send us back to a simpler time...such as in 1859. Satellites would be wiped out, whole power grids could go down, entire continents could have their lights go out. Governments might collapse if they can't communicate and coordinate. It won't be a pretty sight! There are things that our governments can do to protect against this coming storm; whether they do them or not we will have to wait and see. I'm not that hopeful...most times governments only act after the disaster hits. There is something that you can do though that will prepare you for this scenario.
You can just turn it all off. Take a weekend and camp out in your house or out in the woods if you want. Don't use your cell phone, watch TV, listen to the radio, or do anything that requires modern technology. This will be a great time to use all of your survival gear that is in your bug out bag. Learn how to deal with life without its modern conveniences. You will learn some things.
You will learn that life can go on without electricity. You will also find that you are refreshed from the experience. You had more time to enjoy yourself, your family, and this wonderful world that we live in. You were able to clear your mind...and reboot your brain. You will discover that you are more productive and you have a better appreciation of your life, and the miracles of technology. Afterword go ahead and get back with your electronic gadgets and other modern conveniences and enjoy them. Practice being without them once a year or so and keep your survival skills honed. Then someday in the future when a Solar Storm happens you will relax, because you know that you can survive.
As a parent of a new college student who was eager to leave the safety and comfort of our parental control, I gave a few suggestions for my daughter before she departed for her new experience. She made sure to tell me that I worry too much and she would be fine. Within about two week's time, the phone call started coming in from her about things that had happened to her which she had no control over. As a veteran police officer, I would like to give a few things for college students to think about while they pursue their dreams.
