I'm not as optimistic as he is about when the Sun might take out the grid.
We had that geomagnetic jerk early last year after a couple others already in the 2000s. They're coming closer together. With each one, magnetosphere strength takes a step down.
Here's a list from the 1900s, time between jerks is narrowing rapidly.

"...geomagnetic jerks have also been observed to occur around 1925, 1978, 1991, and 1999..."

The Sun doesn't really have to do anything spectacular to take out the grid at this point.
