CLAIM: Massive solar storm to hit Earth in 2012 with ‘force of 100m bombs’. “Similar storms back in 1859 and 1921 caused worldwide chaos, wiping out telegraph wires on a massive scale. The 2012 storm has the potential to be even more disruptive.”

There’s some dispute, but it seems to me that timing isn’t the issue. Now that many think such a flare is likely sooner or later, we should be hardening up the power grids, etc. now.
