We all know that America's society is very fragile. I don't know how people would react if something like this. I cant imagine they would take this very well. Remember the Eastern sea board black out? Well its believed that some of these solar flares could shut an even bigger area down. I think society will crumble if a big enough one occurs along with raised food prices caused by the BP oil spill. So what do you think?[Note]: The oil could stretch all the way across the atlantic ocean if it raches the gulf stream.
