Will gas hit $5 a gallon in 2011 or 2012?
Threats of solar activity (or even EMP attacks from terrorists) could materialize, but they could precipitate efforts by homeowners and businesses to harden their own electric infrastructure. One irony, one possible strategy could be more use of natural gas, which, however, requires electricity to be used by homeowners “safely”. More homeowners could be encouraged to install solar panels and Bloomberg boxes, but technology needs to be developed to shield the local infrastructure.
