At the time the nuclear devices were tested and the resulting damage that the EMP created was noted, the electrical grid was not as large, and a number of American families were not yet dependent upon the grid and there were not that many devices, which would have been affected by an EMP.
Whether the damage will be as extensive as some experts claim today is yet to be determined. One problem is that it may take days for information to filter down to the citizen level that it was an EMP attack. Those that live in a heavily populated metropolitan area will, in all likelihood, suffer the most from an attack. In some extreme cases, you could take over a bottom floor apartment if the other occupants evacuated.
You might assume that the government would counter to prevent another attack, but you could not count on retaliatory action to be successful. Martial Law may be enacted and this could mean the military could provide generators for temporary shelters.
The type of civil unrest may be different from what we have seen in the past when riots focused on a particular event that occurred locally. You would have to bug-out before the riots began if you expected to be able to get clear of the city. Most people could not, or would not make the decision to leave minutes after the power went out. What would cause violence and riots more than anything else would be the lack of necessities.
The authorities would be aware of this fact, but whether they can do anything about it is another story. Some people have actually stated, whether jokingly or not, that they welcome a power grid failure for various reasons. Food poisoning cases will rise and so will deaths from drinking bad water or from lack of water, lack of heat or from lack of air conditioning. In Part One of this series, I looked at what an EMP is, and the 3 types of EMPs (Electro Magnetic Pulse).
Before I begin, I want to note that it has been pointed out to me that there are some technical differences between a nuclear E3 pulse and a solar storm. As I explained in the first part, a high altitude nuclear explosion or weaponized EMP would most likely contain all three types of pulses, where as a CME would only contain the characteristics of an E3 type pulse. The E3 component will geomagnetically induce currents in long electrical conductors, which can then damage or destroy components such as power line transformers and burn out power grid transformers by inducing DC-like currents. What this means is, the E1 pulse of a nuclear EMP has the potential to damage electronic equipment, computers, communication equipment, etc. The E3 type pulse would primarily affect the power grid, and is not likely to harm things like cell phones, computers, or vehicles unless they were directly connected to the power grid. If the CME was large enough, it could induce geomagnetic currents that could destroy a substantial fraction of the very largest transformers on the power grid (possibly over much of the world in a solar EMP). Basically, a large solar storm (think Carrington event or larger) could knock out the power grid. Where and how much it takes out would depend upon the size and strength of the storm. Keep in mind that while your cell phone or Ipad would still function, the communication systems would go down. The US has about 2100 electrical transformers, with about 370 (rough estimate) of those as high voltage (HV) transformers. Compounding this problem, these transformers are NOT one size fits all. The rule of thumb is that for every 13 transformers, there are 10 different designs. Graywolf wrote some exceptional articles on the dangers of planning for worst case scenarios only and not knowing what will happen if SHTF. Scientists have tried to simulate what would happen using computer models, but the hard data they have to base their calculations on is from the last high altitude nuclear EMP… in 1962. And of course much of that data, and the resulting computer simulations and theories are highly classified. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of data available to the general public on what all might be effected by an E1 pulse. For example, scientists are not sure if airplanes would be able to stay in the air after said pulse.
Things such as the strength of the E1 pulse, the altitude and angle of the detonation from your vehicle, the current strength of the Earth’s ionosphere at your location (it fluctuates), the direction your vehicle was facing in relation to the denotation, etc all factor into the equation. As mentioned previously, the last nuclear EMP test was in 1962 and the details released have been minimal. Those vehicles were tested up to the level that some sort of upset occurred, then further testing was stopped on that vehicle. Also, it is widely believed within the scientific community (though not proven) that several nations have the ability to produce EMP weapons AT LEAST 4 to 5 times greater strengths than the test limits of the simulator.
I’m not saying older model vehicles won’t work after an E1 pulse, rather that we cannot be 100% certain they will.
Even if the nuke EMP doesn’t kill the electronics in all vehicles, there still would be problems.
A third problem is the fact that as vehicles die or run out of fuel, those remaining that are drivable suddenly increase in value exponentially. Scientists are beginning to study the correlation of solar storms to migraines and disrupted sleep cycles. I know I’m jumping the gun here but I wanted to give you a takeaway on some things you can do now and what you should start looking into doing. There are come critical items that you might want to consider putting critical items such as a ham radio in Faraday bag things get real bad. James will be going into much more detail on this in the next article, and this may turn out to be more than one article because it’s not a simple idea. Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. About James LA police officer in Oklahoma, James is a gun enthusiast and certified police instructor.
Maybe I am jumping the gun and this will be in part 3, but are there any applications or notification groups that send out information about upcoming CME events, and things of that nature?
I wish I could tell you of some way to know about solar storms weeks or months in advance, but if I could do that I’ll be working for NASA making A LOT more than I am now. It’s also kinda scary how exposed our power grid really is, and the fact that it could be protected if the power companies really wanted to. James and Greywolf, thank you for putting together an informative series of articles and links. I watched the events unfold after hurricane Katrina, as the looting and lawlessness played out on national TV. After the tornadoes took out Moore, Oklahoma last year, my department sent me there to help. The BIG differences between the two, is that those who went to help after the tornadoes knew their families were ok. Order wasn’t restored in New Orleans until people from outside the affected area (whose families were ok) arrived to help.

My personal go bag contentsThere are a lot of different things you can put on your bug out bag list and there’s not really one list of contents that you should follow. 99 freakin’ awesome ideas for your bug out bagLots of articles tell you the basics of what you need in your bug out bag. Top 10 best selling prepper gear you should considerOccasionally, I want to let you know which prepper and survival gear is selling better than the rest. What you need in your bug out bag – a comprehensive lookA bug out bag is critical but what do you put in it? First, a question, do you scrape your magnesium bar to get fine particles or do you shave it to get curls. While magnesium sticks or bars are ideal for fire starting there are some things to consider before heading out to the backcountry with one.
Magnesium is impervious to water and temperature and when in mass form it is very stable, but when in particle form it is highly flammable and can be ignited from a single spark.
Magnesium shavings are light, so if you are trying to scrape enough together when it is breezy out you can find it very difficult to get the shavings and tinder paired up. Magnesium sticks can be drilled at home to create curls of magnesium that are easy to handle and store. Lay out a six inch strip of duct tape adhesive side up and then shave your magnesium bar over the tape. Variations of this would include dipping the cotton balls in petroleum jelly, or dip them in wax and then roll up in the tape. You can experiment with wax and magnesium shavings, but again, you would probably still need a flame to ignite. Do not pull the lint out of the lint tray, especially right after drying a load of clothes, and pack away, it must dry thoroughly first.

Anyone that has been paying attention has likely gathered information about an EMP, and thus, has a reasonable expectation about what may happen.
Experts do know the damage that can be caused by an EMP resulting from a nuclear detonation however, because nuclear devices were tested decades ago.
As with any crisis there are varying degrees, but an EMP attack, regardless of severity, will have an impact on everyone. People living in apartment buildings, for example, may have to leave, because it will become too dangerous to live in a high rise apartment building without electricity. Being at ground level provides greater options, mainly you can extract yourself more easily if the building is torched or overrun by looters or gangs.
However, the fact there was one attack means there would be a high probability of other attacks, so there may be rolling blackouts if you will. This means that if you did bug-out to another area, you may encounter the same problem, but now you have left your home, and getting back home may prove to be an even bigger challenge. However, in the case of an attack against the country all of the people would have a common enemy, one that attacked the nation as a whole. This is all conjecture of course, but certain events in the past have proven that the nation tends to come together when people feel the entire country has been attacked. You would naturally want more information, but it would be difficult to get any information in the hours after. It may even be an accident that causes an EMP that would result in a grid failure just like a nuclear detonation could be an accident.
Your cell phones and computers would most likely work…until they ran out of battery power, or unless they were directly connected to the power grid.
So services that your Iphone and laptop are used for, ie the internet and cell coverage, would most likely be out. Should that happen and the grid across the planet is gone, it could take a lifetime to come back. Also, these different transformers are designed to handle different amounts of electric currents based upon where they are located.
Scientists point out the fact that the Soviet EMP tests burned out many military grade diesel generators that did not have the solid state electronics. Even if an E1 affected only 10% of  vehicles, imagine that one out of every ten cars on the road right now suddenly stopped.
But without any sort of actual tests, scientists do not know the full extent that the damage would cause. It has been over 50 years since the last actual tests, and most of the data and simulator tests remain classified.

I try to stay current on what new products have been introduced and look for the old and trusted. Neither is expected to be a Carrington event or anything, but it’s a timely reminder that this stuff can and will happen eventually. They have have two other satellites in Earth’s orbit but several months behind which help trianglate the solar weather. The question is how resilient and resourceful people will be in working around the problems.
As more and more emergency personnel (and people who provide important services) leave to go protect their families, people will be left to fend for themselves. I grew up in the woods and spent a lifetime in various environments from deserts to jungles to politically-sensitive urban environments, and I'm here to tell you what I know. Each item in your kit will depend on your skill set and what you’re trying to prepare for. When considering disaster preparedness, keep in mind that what survival gear and emergency supplies you add to your bug out bag and then pack for your survival kit can mean the difference between life and death, or at least affect your level of comfort if SHTF and you had to get outta dodge. The magnesium content in the bars available at camping stores and other retail outlets can vary. You can shave the stick with a knife blade to create curls, which can be handled for better placement in a tinder bundle. A fireball created from wax and magnesium however, would likely burn long enough to ignite larger pieces of combustibles. It is easy enough to experiment in your backyard, but you do not want to experiment out in the field. The objective is to create a fire that can be sustained long enough to ignite larger pieces of combustibles in a field environment under wet and windy conditions. This means that not that many people would be contemplating evacuation in the first 24 to 48 hours.
You do not want to be living on the 10th floor without elevators, smoke alarms, and sprinkler systems or without heat or air conditioning.
The highways, side streets, and bridges would be gridlocked, and any vehicle that operates would be a prime target, so it may be commandeered by the authorities or you could be carjacked.
However, more citizens than not will likely rally together, and the anarchists, antagonist, and other trouble makers may be dealt with quickly by other citizens.
You may not have to worry about looters because so-called friends and neighbors may turn on you for what little you may have.
The ones that secretly wish for it to happen will be in for a rude awakening, because they have over anticipated their own abilities. In that case, I hope you know how to farm because the planet just went back in time to the 1800s.
Even some older planes that don’t use computers for basic flight controls still require electronics to assist with things such as the hydraulics.
In addition, newly unclassified reports state that some of the vehicles in Hawaii at the time of the Star Fish Prime test had their non-electronic ignition systems damaged by the EMP. And even if you stockpile fuel, in optimal conditions, gas won’t keep from more than 6 months, 1 year max. The more current simulations and some theories on this remain highly classified as I mentioned previously. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future…and our end.
Many EMP articles conflate E1, E2, and E3 pulses and don’t provide many clues on how one would deal with them. For example, the guys who used a car battery, an automotive fuel pump, and rubber hose to access stored gasoline at gas stations when Hurricane Sandy disrupted electric power to the pumps.
It may be chaos for a short while but there are always enterprising and charismatic people to take the helm and start rebuilding with whatever’s available.
This is currently the list of the top 10 best-selling prepper and survival gear items, along with an explanation for each.
Use the blade pieces for shaving the sticks and for creating a spark with the Ferro rod that is usually imbedded in the stick.
Use just a small section of blade near the Quillon for better control of the blade, and so you do not dull more of the cutting edge than necessary.
Next, shave the magnesium bar over some cotton balls making sure the shavings become imbedded in the cotton fibers. Untold numbers of others will die because they will attempt to cobble together generators and from tinkering with equipment and tools with which they have no experience. We will be trying to survive the fallout, trying to survive without a food and water supply chain. While you could technically argue that I drove a pickup and not a car, the end result is that I’m in Houston and I drove there. Because devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players, and remote-controlled toys, can emit electromagnetic radiation that could adversely affect an aircraft’s navigation and communication systems and actually endanger a flight. But in Part III, we will look at some general things you can do to try and be prepared should we ever experience an EMP. Here is a copy of the Report of the commission to assess the threat to the united states from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that you can download and read for yourself: Report of the commission to assess the threat to the united states from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. However, in the end they’re electromagnetic energy at power levels not normally experienced except near a lightning strike. Anyone who says that their number one priority isn’t to their family needs to reevaluate their life. Other metal alloys are mixed in, and the more alloys contained in the stick the lower the burning temperature. Without medical care and trying to survive without help from the local authorities, that do more for our very existence than we may realize until we have to survive without it. The main difference between E1 and lightning is pulse rise time is much faster so there is more energy in the HF and VHF region where relatively short wires are efficient antennas.
Tape off one end, and then either tape off the other end, or drip some melted wax in the end to create a plug to keep any loose magnesium shavings inside the fireball.

My gut feel is that the Engine Control Module in cars is robust enough to handle lightning, but the car wiring harness will pick up more energy from an E1 pulse.
But basically, the E1 pulse could NOT directly hurt someone physically except in a very specific set of circumstances. It would be a good idea to have one in storage and wrapping the spare in aluminum foil before putting it on the shelf is probably more than adequate protection. For years he has studied and researched the effects of an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack on the United States.
He thought that for too long many Americans had taken everything for granted and assumed life would continue on uninterrupted.

Michael Hopf saysJanuary 13, 2014 at 10:39 pmPreparing for an EMP is a question I receive quite a bit, obviously. An EMP is just the instrument in an arsenal of things that could do large scale damage to our country. Having adequate water, food, medicine, firearms, ammunition and equipment is important, period. But I would add an item, buy or build a faraday box to hold equipment that would be necessary. One has to think that if our world is plunged back to a pre-industrial age what else besides what you have in your cache is important and valuable? Preppers are smart by stockpiling and equipping themselves but what happens if you lost all of it, what could you offer to a group to secure food or safety?
And knowing how to shoot or looking after children is not one, learn how to hunt, tan hides, preparing foods from seed to plate, be a mechanic, an engineer, etc.
While your preparing your bug out location with supplies, prepare yourself with a skill set that will keep you alive.Reply12 Jamie S. Michael Hopf saysJanuary 13, 2014 at 11:09 pmThank you Jamie for reading the books and for the nice review, Jamie. Paul Weindling, history of medicine professor at Oxford Brookes University, describes his search for the lost victims of Nazi experiments. The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later.
EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid. Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said.
I have taken practical courses on alternate living off of the grid over the last several years. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. My favourite pass time is post apocalyptic stories and enjoying my family and grandchildren. I’ve been rural most of my life and have always had a large garden which we preserve and animals.
These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound.
Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant.
We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories. The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity.
However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results.
One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.
However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure.
One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem.
Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility.
Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities. One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close.
Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with. There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing.
In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants. Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip.
If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects.
Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms.
Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
