CME Grid Down Disaster Anyone?

 A friend pointed me to this recent article.

http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/57/25/46891645.pdf

As you probably already know, the scenario of the Sun doing a huge coronal mass ejection causing a huge electrical current to surge through the ground into the power lines, knocking out the grid is not something to look forward to.

Others have suggested than an event of this type would be only the beginning given the need for all of the nuclear power plants to have electricity for cooling their reactors and spent fuel rod pools.
