As a Republican presidential candidate, Ben Carson has said that:

•The nation's electrical grid is vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse from the sun.
Six other things on this list.

This NBC author may not know this , but the sun can pulse magnetic energy in quantity enough to set fire to everything hooked up to a long wire.

This does not happen very often , but it is documented  to have happened .

So this is not Carson's ignorance , but this writers.
