The sad thing is that we are spending hundreds of billions of dollars hunting down “terrorists” in caves on the other side of the globe and we have been told that because of “national security” it is necessary for our private areas to be touched before we are allowed to get on an airplane, but our government is doing essentially nothing to address what is perhaps our biggest security vulnerability. What would you and your neighbors do if the power went out and it did not ever come back on?
What would you do if an EMP attack happened in the middle of the winter and you suddenly were not able to heat your home any longer? What would you do if all the electronics in your car got fried and you simply could not drive anywhere?
What would you do if all the supermarkets in your area shut down because food could not be transported across the country anymore?
What would you do if an EMP attack happened in the middle of the winter and you suddenly were not able to heat your home any longer? What would you do if your debit cards and credit cards simply did not work any longer and you could not get any of your money out of the bank?
A single EMP attack would be the worst disaster that the United States has ever seen by far.
An electromagnetic pulse could potentially fry the vast majority of all the microchips in the United States.  In an instant, nearly all of our electronic devices would be rendered useless. Most of us have become completely and totally dependent on electricity and technology.  Without it, most of us would be in huge trouble. The following is how an article in the Wall Street Journal described the potential consequences of an EMP attack…. No American would necessarily die in the initial attack, but what comes next is potentially catastrophic. It wouldn’t be so bad if we had the knowledge and the infrastructure to live the way that they did back in the 1800s, but today that is simply not the case. All of those big bank accounts may never be able to be recovered after an EMP attack.  Your money might be instantly fried out of existence. The following is what Graham believes would happen to the financial system in the event of an EMP attack….
This is the danger of having a financial system that is so dependent on technology.  We may wake up one day and find that all the money is gone.
But if an EMP attack actually happened, the biggest concern for most of us would be trying to figure out how to survive.
The president of the Center for Security Policy, Frank Gaffney, is convinced that a single EMP attack could result in the deaths of the vast majority of the population of the United States…. It has been estimated that the entire power grid could potentially be protected for about 20 billion dollars.  Considering the fact that we have spent over 400 billion dollars in Afghanistan, I think that we could afford it. We have spent our national security dollars very, very badly and someday it is going to come back to bite us in the rear end.
Right now, other nations around the world are working feverishly to develop EMP weapons.  The following is from a statement by Dr. Remember, all it would take is one strategically placed EMP attack to wipe out this nation.
But an EMP weapon is not the only danger that can produce this type of effect.  The truth is that a really bad geomagnetic storm could also potentially producealmost as much damage. This is something that everyone knows is one of our biggest vulnerabilities and it is something that we can make preparations for.
Yet the Bush administration and the Obama administration have just stood there and have done nothing. Instead of molesting old ladies at airports and chasing goat herders around the mountains of Afghanistan, perhaps we should be addressing our largest security vulnerabilities. So if the government is not going to do anything about it, that means that it is up to you to prepare yourself and your family.  This world is becoming very unstable and disasters can strike at any time. This is yet another reason why the number of preppers in the United States is exploding.  A lot of people can see how the world is changing and they understand that the federal government is not going to come through for them when the chips are down. This is something most people are unaware of, even if the treat is remote, it makes sense to be prepared, just in case! Some attention has been paid to the potential cataclysmic effects of a natural phenomenon such as a massive solar storm, an event that has occurred in Americaa€™s horse-and-buggy era when it did not matter. As the Heritage Foundation has reported, an EMP attack with a warhead detonated 25 to 300 miles above the U.S. Few survival scenarios have captured the imagination (or spawned fear) like the electro-magnetic pulse. The most frightening scenario is the detonation of several high-energy EMPs over an unsuspecting nation. If the power is out, your credit and debit cards arena€™t going to do you much good, and the ancient art of bartering once again becomes a viable economic option. Chemical light sticks are a good non-electric light source, but what about something with a longer burn time?
Repairing and reinforcing your home wona€™t be very easy if all your tools require electricity. A Faraday cage (named for the 19th-century inventor, Michael Faraday), is any conductive structure that protects its contents from electrical pulses. Line the inside of the box with cardboard to ensure that your electronics do not contact any of the foil or metal tape. With our beloved mobile phones inoperable after an EMP, youa€™ll be left with few options for distance communication. A home-defense shotgun and plenty of rounds to accompany it are potentially the most versatile means for self-defense in a grid-down scenario like an EMP attack.

In layman’s terms, it is an intense burst of electromagnetic energy caused by an abrupt and rapid acceleration of charged particles. There are three things that we know cause EMPs: a bolt of lightning, a nuclear explosion (or EMP type weapon), and solar storms.
EMPs by high altitude detonation or CMEs are caused by the release of charged particles within the Earth’s ionosphere.
Anyway, a huge downward surge in particles in the ionosphere would create massive electrical currents which could “short out” all sorts of electrical power grids, transformers, and other equipment dependent on electricity. The first is the Carrington Event of 1859, which was the first documented event of a solar flare impacting Earth. What is known is that the EMP from Test 184 knocked out a 600-mile underground power line (shielded) that was buried 3 feet underground. For the record, the nuclear warheads used in both above mentioned tests were not designed for EMP-related events.
According to NASA, the CME disrupted electric power transmission from the Hydro Quebec generating station and even melted some power transformers in New Jersey.
Scientists from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) have classified EMPs into 3 categories. For the record, E1 type pulses are released by other stars in our galaxy and throughout the universe, but the chances of our planet being struck by such a pulse from another star are BEYOND MINISCULE. The other main difference between a nuclear EMP and a solar EMP, is that while a nuclear EMP may never happen, it is only a matter of time until a solar EMP does hit Earth. This book will help you to prepare for two end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it (TEOTWAWKI) events: the EMP attack and the solar storm. Fuel, communications, power, water, and food will be unavailable within hours when emergency fuel runs out. Over the course of a decade, a stream of credible scientific reports from various government agencies, congressionally-mandated commissions and federal research organizations have warned of the grave vulnerability of our nation’s most important asset: the electric power grid. There have been warnings from scientists and other experts for years that the Nation’s electrical grid system and other critical infrastructures that have almost complete dependency on electricity and electronic components are highly vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event either from natural or man-made causes. However, Congress and the administrations of previous and current presidents largely have ignored those warnings.
The threat from an EMP attack on our critical infrastructures either from an impending solar storm of serious intensity – expected between 2012 and 2014 – or a high-altitude nuclear explosion are threats that could have long-term catastrophic consequences for our society and our way of life.
In 2008 a congressional commission studied the consequences of an EMP attack not only the power grid itself but also the consequences to every sector of our economy: telecommunications, banking, transportation, food, manufacturing, construction, and energy. While these critical infrastructures continue to face such an impending crisis, Congress has basically ignored its own commission report and instead has treated the threat of an EMP event as a political football to be punted whenever expedient for their own gain. While an EMP event on our civilian infrastructure could be serious, it can be managed if government at the federal, state, and local levels gives a high priority to undertake preventative action to lessen its impact to recover from such an event.

I have worked in the IT industry for many years and some of that time was spent servicing government contracts.


The government has put a lot of money into research in this area and as a result there is a lot of information available.
While my work mostly consisted of TEMPEST certified systems, many installations combine TEMPEST and EMP requirements together for obvious reasons.
Personally I believe that this is a variant of Stingray being run in a general surveillance mode (As opposed to the way the FBI uses it) by some government agency like the NSA in cooperation with the military (most of them are near bases). Yeah, I’m actually writing an article on exactly that right now, to include those cell towers, stingray, and personnel-worn IMSI fakers. Yes the CME that hit Canada was a third of the size of the Carrington one but it didn’t knock out power lines all over North America did it?
Oddly enough we’re about to get hit by a CME that was ejected yesterday when a Solar Plasma Filament was ejected in our direction. Here is an example of history of how auroras played havoc with wires from a site that archives solar flare news. February 25, 1927 – In Geneva, villagers asked fire department to extinguish the aurora.

I think that *terrorism* is why the government is so ultra paranoid on spying that they feel all Americans are suspicious. Eventually it will be to the point that there won’t even be parts for home computers so once yours breaks down you have to get either a smart phone or a tablet.

An Electromagnetic Pulse is a short burst of energy that has the ability to completely fry all electronics and can be brought about by exploding a nuclear device at high altitude (North Korea is capable of doing this right now) or even just by a solar flare. Such an event would make it almost impossible to communicate as every single electronic device, including the power grid, would be completely destroyed. Watch Judge Jeanine Pirro as she talks about the vulnerability of our power grid and what would happen if we did lose it and all electronics in our country.
To understand the EMP threat you first have to understand what an EMP is and why many Americans are beginning to get worried.
An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a quick, powerful blast of electromagnetic energy that ranges across a large part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Scientists tell us that there is a real threat coming from Mother Nature in the form of solar flares that are expected to occur over the next few years. The pulse would wipe out most electronics and telecommunications, including the power grid.

This event or weapon, commonly known as an EMP, creates a short burst of electromagnetic energy that can disrupt or even destroy electronic devices and systems, potentially even the electrical power grid. Ita€™s best to hold onto food with a long shelf life and weapons that could be used against you. Paraffin oil is thicker than those and its flash point is 100 degrees higher than kerosene.
Your simplest option is an old microwave oven or a tightly sealed metal garbage can (other options include an ammo can or a metal safe). You can use regular tape for this, although aluminum or copper tape will provide better security.
But be aware that having electricity in a world without any would paint a big target on your back. A variety of shotgun loads can be used both against home intruders and for hunting wild game.
In the end, you might end up giving a large share of food to the warlord who controls the region, but at least youa€™ll have some fooda€”and youa€™ll be a valuable person to the community.
The internet is filled with web pages telling you want you should or should not do in case of one. I’ll tell you what we know about them, and more importantly, what we DON’T know,  how a nuclear EMP is different than a solar or CME (coronal mass ejection) EMP, and try to dispel some myths surrounding them. Such a pulse may occur in the form of a radiated electric or magnetic field or conducted electrical current depending on the source, and may be natural or man-made. The ionosphere is the shell of electrons and electrically charged particles surrounding Earth. The four that will I mention here (2 from CME and 2 from nuclear detonation) are usually the most referenced. In 1962, the US government launched a 1.4 megaton nuclear warhead about 250 miles into the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean. A powerful solar flare set off a major power blackout that left six million people without electricity for about nine hours.
The Earth has a better chance of being hit by a large asteroid than it does an E1 pulse from another star.
In part two of this series, I will look at what these types of pulses mean to us, what they are capable of doing, and what all we still do not know about them. What about if the Sun emitted a large coronal mass ejection that resulted in a damaging geomagnetic storm? Each threat is carefully studied with analyses of its likelihood and potential impacts on our nation’s critical infrastructures.
The shielding effectiveness of homemade Faraday cages is measured and compared, including metal garbage cans, foil-wrapped boxes, fire safes, static bags, ammo cans, and microwave ovens.
For millions of us, life in 21st Century America would be all but impossible without access to electricity. Events such as the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the United States and then the devastating Hurricane Katrina that revealed vulnerabilities to those infrastructures heightened that concern.
He even outlines how our own military is similarly vulnerable to an EMP event due to its 99 percent dependency on the nation’s electrical grid system for electricity and communications, raising the high prospect that it may not be able to function to defend the nation in its time of greatest need. In his off time, he is a single father who enjoys playing with his kids and watching football. I have been following these stories since I first became aware of the possibility some years ago. If that is the case then whoever is on the opposite side of the globe would be left pretty much untouched.
The Earth’s own magnetic field has an affect on where and how much Solar events penetrate. I get about 50-100 spam comments per day so I have to use a program to filter out those or I’d be on here all day just reading comments. They probably think for whatever reason wheather real or made up that there is some kind of *movement* going on against them so all Americans are to be spied on as a result and what better way to do it then to push smart phones and tablets to kill the home computer!
Most websites are designed to be dumbed down for smart phone viewing anyways and Google has made it a rule too or your site won’t be ranked which is why sites are small and narrow to read. If they use an orbital EMP weapon, the primary target would, in all probability, be Cheyenne mountain, at enough altitude to induce a secondary desired effect in the collapse of the national grid. 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. 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.


Each item in your kit will depend on your skill set and what you’re trying to prepare for. People use to think the only real threat to our way of life came from a nuclear attack and the subsequent radioactive fallout. An EMP attack would wreak havoc on electronics but would leave our buildings standing unharmed. If someone were to detonate a nuclear warhead a couple hundred miles over the US the resulting electromagnetic pulse could destroy our countries power grid.
Our roads could quickly become congested parking lots and the electronic systems in many automobiles could be disabled.
To gauge the possible effect of an EMP attack one has only to look at what happened in the New York City blackout in 1972. Graham believes that in the event of a large scale EMP attack, the vast majority of Americans would either freeze, starve or die from disease.
Strategic Command, has said the following about the possibility of an EMP attack in the future….
An EMP can occur naturally, such as the pulse from a massive solar flare, but EMPs are also created by technological devices, typically nuclear weapons. Commonly used as fodder for apocalyptic novels like One Second After and doomsday TV shows like NBCa€™s Revolution, these weapons have become a fixture of pop culture. A well bucket is a cylinder fitted with a couple hundred feet of string and lowered down slender modern wells to draw up water. But other itemsa€”goods that serve no major constructive use in the home but are popular neverthelessa€”could be parted with if you can find a willing trading partner. This is where oil lamps come into play, my favorite being the lightweight Dietz Original lamp. Hand saws and a hammer are obvious choices, but grab some less obvious choices too, like planes, block sanders, and a brace and bit for hole drilling and driving screws. A Faraday cage is easy to build, but since we dona€™t know the exact level of damage that can be caused by a weaponized EMP, ita€™s impossible to say which electronics might survive. If these items are protected adequately in a Faraday cage, or the EMP was distant or of low strength, they might just work after the pulse is over. It would almost certainly be best to keep things like this to yourself, and keep backup electronics like charge controllers and inverters in a shielded container. Many other items, besides the predictable shotguns, handguns, and rifles, can be used as tools for self-protection and defense.
In some cases, it can even cause physical damage to things such as buildings, airplanes, power lines, etc. This surge of electricity can damage your electronics that you may have plugged into the wall sockets of your home. EDT on Sept., 1 and is named after Richard Carrington, the solar astronomer who witnessed the event through his telescope. Practical preparations are outlined, including steps to meet the fourteen basic needs in the absence of modern utilities, and the use of Faraday cages and uninterruptible power supplies to protect personal electronics. Mob violence from mass evacuation of uninhabitable metropolitan areas will be a significant security issue within days. As this compendium of the government’s own studies makes clear, the protracted unavailability of the power required for all of our critical infrastructures poses a truly existential threat to our country and its people—unless we take practical and relatively low-cost steps to prevent it. Due to the lapse of time and a relatively calm period since those disasters, policymakers have been lulled back into complacency rather than take preventative action against what could be the biggest threat to US national and economic security in our lifetime.
The Snowden revelations have served to confirm what many people in the IT industry suspected for years. I understand it would cost (only) about 2 billion (the amount we give to Pakistan) to fix this problem.
Maine and Florida may escape unscathed, but we all need to prepare in every way possible, from whole house surge protectors to faraday type shielding.
Here’s what Graywolf from Graywolf Survival carries and why, as well as some suggestions on how to plan your EDC kit.
This is currently the list of the top 10 best-selling prepper and survival gear items, along with an explanation for each.
Ita€™s clear now that the US needs to be prepared to survive a new kind of attack that can be detonated far above our atmosphere leaving our country crippled without a single building being damaged. There have been some tests where an EMP has been released during a nuclear detonation and the result has fused power lines, caused radios and TVa€™s to break and triggered burglar alarms in a 900-mile radius.
All of a sudden life for us would be thrust backwards to the beginning of the 19th century. Obviously our missile defense systems would be completely ineffective against such a phenomena. The effects of an EMP attack would stretch to air travel as many planes could fall as a result of fried electronics.
There was an immediate breakdown in social order as out- numbered and out gunned police officers had to just stand by and watch looters go to work.
In the event that this threat moves from fiction to reality, here are some things you ought to consider having in place.
Once a wick is contaminated with paraffin, it must be replaced in order for the lamp to burn properly with a different fuel. You could even pull out the hand tools mentioned above and board up a few ground floor windows in the back of the house and other likely ingress points around your home. Having the knowledge, means, and location to grow food crops and livestock might just keep you alive during a multi-year blackout. The size of the ionosphere can fluctuate some based on varying factors I won’t get into here. Although the warhead was not as powerful as the one from Star Fish Prime, it was exploded about 180 miles over the populated area of Kazakhstan.
But these may or may not be strong enough to have dire consquences for Earthlings.) Most are usually pointing off in a direction that does not effect Earth.
A similar electromagnetic pulse could also come from something like a geomagnetic solar storm.
Short range missiles like Scuds could easily be launched off of war ships and the list of countries capable of such actions include China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and groups like the Hezbollah. The heat output is around 900 BTUa€™s per hour, and it puts out an average of 7 candle power with a half inch of burning wick exposed.
Note that batteries are not affected by EMP, so they dona€™t need to be included in your stash. No corners should be cut when it comes to your familya€™s defense during a crisis situation. The EMP was so intense that it was not accurately measured because “it drove much of the instrumentation off scale”. As a result, much of the protection that equipment has against an E2 might have been damaged from the initial E1 pulse in the event of a nuclear or weaponized EMP. They have different impacts on technology and are affected differently by the Earth’s magnetosphere.
Ita€™s also conceivable that a threat of EMP could also come from a short range missile attack that would be launched off our coast from an enemy ship. Our shipping could be hampered as well as many cargo vessels communications and electronic systems experience complete meltdowns. Ita€™s clear that if the US were to come under an EMP attack the fallout would last for months if not years millions of Americans would lose their lives.
The lamps cost about $11 each and operate on an average of 3 cents worth of lamp oil per hour.
Ita€™s hard to impress upon the average modern person the luxury that they are tapping into every time they use a mobile phone.
A widespread power outage could take years to restore because the EMP destroys electronics including circuits and transformers.
Blocking all means to escape the zone and later bio weapon the empty cities, swamps, forest, mountain areas and etc.
Imagine the number of ships out there that would become lost without any of their guidance systems. With that option gone, Ia€™m sure that most millennials would succumb to temporary insanity.
So you can see from this overview they have no plans to harden from an EMP and etc on the inside.
