Not so sure its cray-cray. If the Carrington Event happened to day it would be back to the stone age for us or worse. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_1859_geomagnetic_stormI love all this cray-cray EMP talk. Always remember Rule #1. It’s #1 for a reason.
If memory serves me correct, I think it was back in 2011 we missed getting nailed by one way stronger than this by about 12 hours or so due to the rotation of the sun I believe. It ejected basically at 180 degrees away from the earth.
Then you got other bad actors out there like Rocket man and other nitwits.
So EMP proof you some backup stuff.
