2. It is very likely that solar activity and electromagnetic interfacing between heavenly bodies will produce Electromagnetic Pulses (EMP) of enough magnitude to not only destroy the power grid, but to destroy most electric and electronic devices (unless properly shielded and may destroy them even if they are shielded).
zbrain, I never seen anything about EMPs being cause substantial damage, if any, to electronic circuits.
They affect the impedance of circuits, wires and fields so that they become disrupted of shut down, until being re-powered. They attack the flow of energy, and not the components, although some damages may result from this shutdown.
Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) causes blackout on 13 March 1989
At 2:45 AM on March 13, 1989 electrical ground currents created by the magnetic storm found their way into the power grid of the Hydro-Quebec Power Authority. Giant capacitors tried to regulate these currents but failed within a few seconds as automatic protective systems took them off-line one by one. Suddenly, the entire 9,500 megawatt output from Hydro-Quebec's La Grande Hydroelectric Complex found itself without proper regulation. Power swings tripped the supply lines from the 2000 megawatt Churchill Falls generation complex, and 18 seconds later, the entire Quebec power grid collapsed.

Despite the (apparent) work and effort to compile....
....my eyebrows can't help but prepare for the inevitable approach of my palm, when I see so many of the "references" link to the likes of:
'bibliotecapleyades.net' AND, that "darling" of ATS ---- wnd.net.
I thing there is enough fear-mongering, for one decade already.....and barely into it, first year......
(Well....at least the word "Proof!" doesn't appear in the thread title. That's something.....)

Not sure if you know (escuse me for assuming if you do) but biblioteca means library in spanish...

Great job OP! I started another thread just based on alignments of C/2010 X1, the Sun, Earth and our other inner solar system planets and how they correlate with a significant increase of earthquakes that are 5.0 magnitude or above. You obviously have done a ton more research on this subject than I have, so hats off to you! I'm glad there is someone else out there doing such a great job proving that there is something coming! Cheers!
