Preserve our technology

  1. Feb 25, 2010 #1
    In September 1859, a -1,760nT (nano-Teslas) solar storm hit Earth. Telegraphs in the United States and Europe shorted out, igniting widespread fires.
    Our technology is very young. How could we preserve it in the event of a solar tempest? Do you think it is possible to dissipate that “energetic carpet” when hits our electronics?

    Thank you for reading
