If Massive Solar Flare Fries Grid, Don't Blame Rep. Trent Franks

It was less than 8 months ago that we last wrote about Arizona Congressman Trent Franks (R-CD2)starting a caucus and testifying about his bill to address natural and terrorist threats to our power infrastructure. (The SHIELD Act: http://1.usa.gov/xUbigJ)

With the Earth being buffeted today by one of the largest solar storms in years (http://bit.ly/wSpQAf), it may be time to revisit that story, as well as Franks' video.
