What are the odds of a monstrous solar flare taking out modern civilization within the next fifty years? In a way, it could be far worse than a pandemic... 






Very low.  We have already developed satellites capable of withstanding radiation levels orders of magnitude higher than any solar flare will produce.  We can see a coronal mass ejection in advance, which is why we know it is coming.  We can shield power lines if necessary, or add the requisite capacitance to deal with it.


We would focus our attention on that for a while rather than the pointless problems on which we have been distracted recently perhaps.
