Getting Prepared for an Electromagnetic Pulse Attack or Severe Solar Storm

Getting Prepared for an Electromagnetic Pulse Attack or Severe Solar Storm | (◣_◢) NEWSBAD.COM: "... We now live in a world that is so completely immersed in advanced technology that we depend upon it for our very survival. Most of the actions that we depend upon for our everyday activities -- from flipping a switch to make the lights come on to obtaining all of our food supplies at a nearby supermarket -- are things that any individual from a century ago would consider magic.

Very few people in industrialized countries do work that is not directly assisted by electronic computers, although that computerized assistance is often quite invisible to the average person. Few people think about things such as the fact that whenever we buy some food item at a supermarket (and many others are buying the same item), the next time we go to that same supermarket, they still have about the same supplies that they had before. There are invisible infrastructures all around us that are made up of advanced technology. Most of us just take the magic for granted.

Few people stop to consider what would happen if, in an instant, the magic went away. If our advanced technology were suddenly and completely destroyed, how would we manage to survive? A nuclear EMP could make the magic go away. I hope it never happens, and I don't think that it is at all inevitable. It makes no sense, however, to be blind to the danger. It is both much less likely to happen -- and also less likely to have a catastrophic impact -- if, both as a civilization and as individuals, we are prepared for an attack on our advanced technology. A nuclear EMP would be a seemingly magical attack upon our advanced technology, the technological infrastructure upon which our lives depend.

Among all of the kinds of electromagnetic disturbances that can occur, though, it is important to keep things in perspective. It is possible that a nuclear EMP may never happen where you live. On the other hand, a severe solar storm that will destroy most of the world's power grids appears nearly inevitable at this point. Protection against the damage of a severe solar storm could be done easily and rather inexpensively by the electrical utilities; however it is not being done, and there is no sign that it will be done. A severe solar storm poses little threat to electronics, but would take down the most important power grids in the world for..."



  1. I've been researching about EMP for a little bit now and I've come across some really great blogs and articles along the way. One that I always go back to listen to is a radio blog. They have guest(s) on every Wednesday to talk about EMP. Next Wednesday two authors are going to be on their show, Paul Palango and Reza Kahlili. I think that this should be a really great show to listen to, I can't wait. Here's the link if you'd like to listen, too: http://empactradio.org/pvp/pvp66-paul-palango/

  2. I've also heard about EMPactRadio.org; really great site. I love listening to their shows, they are always very informative. Hey, anonymous- do you know that Ken Timmerman is going to be on the show tomorrow? It should be interesting. I listened to the show that you were talking about and it was great, check out the one tomorrow and let me know what you think, too!

  3. I posted on this before about Paul Palango and Reza Kahlili being on that radio show (EMPactRadio) a while ago. But I wanted to let people know that Reza Kahlili is actually going to be back on that radio show again this Wednesday the 22nd if you missed him last time or if you want to listen to him again! He's really great! Here's the link for this Wednesday's show: http://empactradio.org/pvp/episode88-reza-kahlili/


All comments on this blog are moderated, meaning they don't appear until approved by me. So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
