A CME is presumably a coronal mass ejection, Bob ?
Who is going to quibble over whether or not the figure is 100% accurate? Even 50% accuracy is still a complete disaster.
No argument from me. I wasn't suggesting it was you quibbling Phil. Just a turn of phrase in general. The fact is we won't know the full implications for some time and all we need to know is the number is huge. My eldest daughter spent today volunteering in a warehouse in Sydney with 300 other people and their sewing machines sewing survival garments and pouches for injured and orphaned animals. It's on again tomorrow. There are workshops where people are building habitat survival boxes for possums and tons of carrots and sweet potatoes are being air dropped to feed critical colonies of wallaby.
Possibly the most amazing thing is the apparent knowledge and unusual behaviour exhibited by some koala. These wild animals seem to know that humans can help them. They willingly seek out and approach for aid and comfort.
