OK, suppose it's a solar event. I would expect that we should bring our car batteries indoors, right? But what would it do to our car electronics with the battery removed?

if its a solar event, yes, that would be short term (days/weeks)

if its the "solar system moving into the interstellar EM cloud" that would be years - and you would need a horse and cart to get around

in either event, you would not be able to use your car thanks to modern electronics. You may be able to use an old mechanical injection diesel if you can un hook the battery after starting and the engine still runs

my understanding is that any electric wire carrying current induces an EM field, which a solar event would overload and fry the appliance / car internal wiring etc

what is annoying is we would lose the net, and our beloved ATS

.......but I dont get why would need to shut the air out of our house in this event

Nothing.

With the battery removed the electical system won't be affected.

It missed.

June 24, 2011 - High speed winds have been buffeting the Earth for the past two days and look set to continue for a few more. However, the CME that erupted on June 21 appears to have slid by the Earth without having any noticeable impact. The active regions on the Sun today are all small and magnetically simple so the forecast is for space weather to remain calm.

And there hasn't been much of anything since.

A solar storm will not affect you car at all.

Worst case scenario will be transformers blowing but only on long span power grids.

Awww DARN The CME missed us, the Asteroid missed us
We need some action


Oh wait... seems the ISS crew hid in the Soyuz return ship because something was coming at them


NASA: "Unknown piece of space debris of unknown size" buzzes ISS, crews shelter in Soyuzes

Exciting times eh? Wonder what that was all about?

prob been posted elsewhere however, extract from NASA site "getting ready fo rthe next solar storm"

In 2011 the situation would be more serious. An avalanche of blackouts carried across continents by long-distance power lines could last for weeks to months as engineers struggle to repair damaged transformers. Planes and ships couldn’t trust GPS units for navigation. Banking and financial networks might go offline, disrupting commerce in a way unique to the Information Age. According to a 2008 report from the National Academy of Sciences, a century-class solar storm could have the economic impact of 20 hurricane Katrinas.

Does NASA offer a live web stream of the Sun?

OK then, back to the loo problem. Anyone know how to convert a regular toilet to a chemical toilet if we can't flush?

And as a suggestion, a few packs of dollar store baby wipes can replace toilet paper.

yes its a big problem lol

how about composting toilet?

newspaper? (ouch)

place I used to work had a piece of sandpaper nailed in loo, with this written on it - "re-usable toilet paper" - lol

I am on septic and have 35000 litre water tank, so can go ok. for a few flushes

Hmm unknown of unknown size.. buzzing (as Jim puts it) the ISS so they have to hide in the Russian escape ship. And yet they say NORAD tracks everything larger than a tennis ball

Uh huh... just a normal day in space...

If it comes to an emergency... what is wrong with just digging a hole and making an old fashioned outhouse? Drop some lime in it once a year and your done.

If your down to using leaves though, watch out for the poison ivy

Yup... but I can't afford 20 million


Maybe I can cash in my stars and flags and do an ATS exclusive
