What's funny is their idea of working on the problem! They are tweaking software for shutting down the grid on short notice and develop a plan for which areas to restore first after a shut down as to not disrupt dictator control, it's upgrades to maintain their infrastructure!

Those darn pesky solar storms, we can't live with 'em, and we can't live without them. In the past, extended periods of inactivity have coincided with lower-than-expected temperatures on Earth. The most famous example is the Maunder Minimum, a 70-year period with virtually no sunspots from 1645 to 1715. Average temperatures in Europe sank so low during that period that it came to be known as "the Little Ice Age."
