May I ask ba
The sun always causes heat.
Solar flares actually wont cause that much heat, I do believe that we are overdue a massive coroneal solar ejection which occured in the early 1800's and knockout the telegraph system, this has been proven to occur about every 150 years and it were to happen forget about electricity for approximately 4 years.
