FAQ – This page is set aside to help you understand the why of solar storms, as Dr. Reid answers the most commonly asked questions:
Q: Why is a large CME harmful to the Earth?
A: During a solar storm, as the CME plasma cloud collides with Earth, large transient magnetic perturbations overlay and alters the normally stable Earth’s magnetic field. These perturbations are known as a geomagnetic storm, can induce voltage variations along the Earth’s surface. Induced electric fields in the Earth create potential differences in voltage between grounding points – which cause Geomagnetic Induced Currents (GICs) that naturally flow through any conductive material between grounding points. Most easily affected are power lines and the transformers they are connected to. Already near capacity, the American power grid will be severely or permanently damaged if enough additional electrical current is induced into the system.
I have just finished your book in Amazon kindle and still waiting for you reply email to download the survivor guide.
I think the book is great except I want it in print to read when there is no power. How can I buy one??????
Thank you so much for the download of your book. I am new at this and am a single woman trying to find out how best to survive this.
