Assess the efficiency of the current state of the national electric grid in the United States. Then, describe the key challenges in updating this grid to a so-called “smart grid”. Each power outage cost the economy billions every year. Severe weather is one of the causes of power outage. More power outages will occur as the weather becomes more severe. Supporting demonstration of not only the smart grid technologies but it also has to support new business models, policies, and societal benefits. Summarize the main reasons why the researchers stated that “our planet's magnetic field is in a constant state of change”. Then, discuss the overall manner in which a magnetic reversal might impact human activities on Earth. Include one (1) example of such impact to support your response.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
