Something to ponder 8/20/17

Just something that came to me after hearing of a class x CME that could happen durring the eclipse.. it take about 12-18 hours to hit us after it happens.. for those that do not know, a CME (coronal mass ejection aka solar flair) of that magnatude can be the large scale EMP (electromagnetic pulse) event which can have the same effect that everyone has been worried about from a high altitude nuculear detonation from N Korea or some other country. Not only do you have to worry about the power, cars and electronics going out.. they dont ever talk about people with pacemakers.. depending on how strong the emp is would depend on that as well.. for instance, microwave ovens say to not use around people with pacemakers... it doesnt effect other electronics around it perse but can effect a pacemaker.. so even if a cme does happen and its emp from it isnt strong enough to wipe out everything, it is still something to think about if youre in a crowd  and people just start falling over...
