The short answer seems to be that any nation with a nuclear energy program could also have the capability to build bombs. But we also know that nations like Saudi Arabia and Japan may want (or already have) nuclear weapons in their arsenals. Even this photographer turned truck driver was able to reverse engineer the designs for the original American atomic weapons. Support anti-nuclear activism. Demand a peaceful end to the atomic age and a dismantling of nuclear arsenals and power plants.

The story of the Siege of Leningrad provides a solemn reminder for the value of storing a pantry of shelf-stable food. Some say the supply chains we rely on are too fragile, and without social and economic stability could fail.
Bulk rice and lentils are an excellent core ingredients in a food storage pantry because they are low cost, cook fast with boiling water, combine to provide a complete protein, and can stay fresh for years if properly stored in air tight containers.

An EMP (electromagnetic pulse) can be created by space weather, like massive solar flares, as well as HEMP weapons. In a nuclear war it is possible that the first nukes used would be HEMP weapons in an attempt to knock out defenses. As the EMP hits the faraday cage, the energy travels around the outer metal material but not through the insulator. Batteries should not be effected by an EMP but might be useful stored with your electronics for easy access. If you have certain individual electronics you use regularly and want to add a level of protection, consider buying small faraday bags. This entry was posted in How To and tagged electromagnet pulse, electronics, emp, faraday cage, grid down, hemp weapon on November 6, 2013 by Michael.
By all means don’t let this strategy limit you from including other off-grid options in your plans. Since it takes physical work to generate electricity by pedaling or hand cranking, you should start off by choosing appliances and systems that use little or no fuel or electricity. These toilets are not much more than buckets with toilet seats but have a few important design features that make them ideal for tiny living spaces. The other advantage of this system is that it requires no additional electricity for pumping or ventilation, especially if you located your exhaust vent near the dry toilet.
When the bucket of deposits or urine containers get full they can be removed from the shelter for composting. There are many camp stove options but one of the safer ones for use in a shelter would be an alcohol stove like the Cookmate Stove.
Typically a blower fan will force air through the shelter but if you are the source of that power that runs it you’ll want to avoid air contaminants. If your shelter is underground the temperature should initially be cool, and slowly over time get warmer. Instead of plumbing your shelter with pipes, consider using hand pumps on 55 gallon water barrels or spigots on 5 gallon water jugs over a simple plastic basin or sink that drains into a bucket. Lighting – Small battery operated LED lights can provide low-level general lighting as well as task lighting.
Communications – Having the ability to stay connected to other members of your group, and keep abreast of news and information can greatly improve your safety and inform your decisions. Entertainment – Entertainment might be considered essential for metal health reasons. For all electronics be sure to store them in faraday cage protected containers for maximum EMP (electromagnetic pulse) protection.
You might be wondering about refrigeration, air conditioning, heating, microwave ovens, washers and dryers. I wonder if the folks at NeverWet realize they’ve made a product that might be perfect for the weeks following a nuclear war or reactor accident? You see after the first 30 days the radiation levels from nuclear bomb blasts will be low enough that survivors should be able to leave their shelters permanently and resume living on the surface. Now imagine a handy coating you could spray on any clothes with that would make a quick hose-down possible. When you returned from trips outside the shelter you’d just wash-off any fallout with a quick spray of water. This entry was posted in Gear and tagged clean, fallout, NeverWet, paint, protection, wash on November 3, 2013 by Michael. The simple truth is that nuclear war and nuclear reactor accidents are survivable, especially for those who live just miles from targets and power plants. There are a lot of different kinds of radiation detectors out there, but we suggest a geiger counter because it can detect low level beta and gamma radiation in food and water. So don’t fear radiation, prepare for the possibility we may be exposed to it from time to time. Fukushima – The trouble at Fukushima was never resolved, it was only temporarily contained. A risky plan is underway to attempt to remove 1,533 of the over 11,000 fuel rods from the stricken plant.
Three reactor cores have apparently melted down and sunk into the basements of reactors 1, 2, and 3. Reduce your own fear or uncertainty – The events unfolding at Fukushima is very scary stuff.
Improve your own self-reliance – Why rely on the government or experts when you can check your own food and surroundings yourself? Check contamination of skin, clothes, and other surfaces – Radioactive material, like fallout, can get on your skin and clothes and should be washed away as soon as possible. Check contamination of beaches – There have been reports that radioactive contamination from Fukushima has reached coastlines in the Americas. Modern digital geiger counters can be found on Amazon, just be sure it can detect gamma and beta radiation. I also recommend buying a solar or pedal powered battery charger, plus some extra rechargeable batteries for your geiger counter – since in a worst case scenario the grid may also go down after a nuclear event. Lastly… you might be wondering if one needs a fallout shelter after a nuclear power plant meltdown. I’ve touched on my main concern briefly already, but let me call it out specifically. Every one of us that prepares for uncertainty incrementally improves the overall resilience of the entire community, and opens up the possibility that more people will be in a position to help others… not to mention protect ourselves from others turning to desperation.

The United States has announced a $400 billion upgrade for the nuclear arms arsenal is in the works. Maybe they are all just reminding each other that the nuclear option is still on the table in an attempt to deter World War III. We the people should take note of this reminder and remember that nations still go to war with each other – and we the people can get caught in the line of fire. This entry was posted in News Link and tagged China, nuclear war, Russia, USA, wwiii on October 31, 2013 by Michael. Nuclear weapons are primarily blast weapons, temporarily charging the material caught up in the blast.
Use a low level geiger counter to test food, water, clothing, skin and surfaces for radioactive material.
Leverage any and all disaster preparations you made before the nuclear blast, like food and water you’ve stored away.
So in other words, the effects from a nuclear blast are not as long lasting as a nuclear reactor accident, and society would heal faster assuming it was an isolated event.
In a nuclear reactor accident like Chernobyl or  Fukushima, the radiation lingers at high levels for many years. So if the steaming wreck at Fukushima were to rupture and leak more material into the environment we may be facing a wider spread area of contamination.
Obtain a low level geiger counter before the disaster to be able to detect radioactive contamination of food and water in the future. Store shelf stable food and water at your home for a minimum of 30 days (FEMA’s recommendations multiplied by a factor of 10 as cheap insurance). Build a low cost fallout shelter, or a dual-use space that also serves you everyday as a cellar, home office, or spare room. Support anti-nuclear organizations like Beyond Nuclear to help move humanity toward a future with no nukes! But mostly realize that until nuclear weapons and reactors are gone we live with the treat of radiation.

This concentration of EMP by metal wiring is one reason that most electrical equipment and telephones would be destroyed by the electrical surge.
One simple solution is to use battery-operated equipment which has cords or antennas of only 30 inches or less in length. That said, there are some methods which will help to protect circuits from EMP and give you an edge if you must operate ham radios or the like when a nuclear attack occurs. A new device which may soon be on the market holds promise in allowing electronic equipment to be EMP hardened.
At the other end of the scale of EMP resistance are some really sensitive electrical parts. The only two requirements for protection with a Faraday box are:(1) the equipment inside the box does NOT touch the metal container (plastic, wadded paper, or cardboard can all be used to insulate it from the metal) and (2) the metal shield is continuous without any gaps between pieces or extra-large holes in it. The thickness of the metal shield around the Faraday box isn’t of much concern, either. An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a short burst of energy caused by either solar flares or a nuclear blast. Because of this ability, EMP weapons have been created with the aim to destroy the enemy’s technological capabilities.
This fear has caused many preppers to invest in a Faraday Cage, giving them the means to protect their most valuable technology-based survival equipment. A Faraday Cage, simply put, is a metal container with a lining on the inside that does not conduct electricity. In order for it to protect any electronics you place in it, the inside of the metal container must be lined with a protective cover so that your electronics cannot touch any metal.
Just remember that the larger the metal container, the more protective lining you will have to invest in for your Faraday Cage to work. Let’s say you decide on making one out of a metal trash can since they are easy to find and relatively cheap while still being able to hold a fair amount of contents. We’ve established that you are opting for a metal trash can (for the purpose of this article). Now that you have your container, you must line the inside of it with enough cardboard so that no contents will be able to touch any metal. Any electronics you consider vital in case of an emergency should go inside your soon-to-be Faraday Cage. If you want to take extra precautions, you can opt to wrap your gathered electronic in heavy gauge aluminum foil.

Your standard 31-gallon metal trash can will be able to keep a lot of electronics safe and is a favorite container among many preppers.
EMPs are a threat to modern society and many preppers base their entire bug out plans on the event of an EMP striking their city or even the majority of the United States.
This simple project can be finished in under 30 minutes and will help insure that your valuable electronics will be safe from being fried by an EMP blast, which would happen without warning.
Yes, as long as the holes are small with respect to the wavelength of the incident electromagnetic wave. Even the Police have some new small Faraday bags for confiscated cell phones a€“ to preserve information. Back in 2004, The Congressional Study EMP Report indicated potential casualty rates of 90%.
To avoid a total collapse every American should have some EMP hardened equipment or at least a Faraday Cage to protect the most important survival electronics. A Faraday cage is a sealed enclosure that has an electrically conductive outer layer and a non-conductive inner layer.
Tip: if you can call your phone, then wrap the box in another layer of aluminum foil and try again. The principle is the same (as Pasta box)a€¦ just that this one is larger and can be opened every time you want without tearing up the foil. But chances are that you have a normal bird cage, which will work as a Faraday cage if you place some foam (for example) in it.
If it does not work, it probably means that the holes are too big so youa€™ll have to wrap the cage in aluminium.
Line the trash can with cardboard (or carpet padding), including the bottom, making sure there are no gaps.
You can fit here a lot more electronics including an old laptop with your survival books and maybe a very small generator or a small solar panel.
You dona€™t want the nails (which the box already has) to connect the aluminum foil with the inside of the box. Just line the inside with cardboard (including the lid) and put in the electronics you wish to protect from EMPa€™s. With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts. They do, but this is certainly a lower cost option, especially if you have an old ammo can available.
Some facts are still somewhat concealed but knowledge of this 1940s technology is available to anyone what wants to know – especially for those who have ample funding for nuclear projects. Humanity must mature to a level where we don’t contaminate our home with deadly materials and waste. While this is one of the most extreme examples, it is an excellent one for illustrating how quickly a shock to supply chains can effect a population. While disaster may or may not be around the corner it is always on the table, albeit not our first priority until disaster strikes. High Altitude Electromagnetic Weapons (HEMP weapons) are nuclear weapons that are detonated high in the atmosphere.
Solar panels, wind turbines, micro-hydro, and even fuel powered generators are excellent options and can do wonders for elevating comfort levels and getting work done faster when grid power is not available. These toilets have inserts just below the seat that keeps the urine separate from the other deposits.
Any odors should get sucked right out with the normal air circulation you must promote inside your shelter. Filling the first bucket or bottles may also time out perfectly with the rapidly decaying radiation outside too. Ideally you should never burn candles or fuel inside a small fallout shelter because oxygen comes at a premium and you want to avoid and build-up of carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide. The ground naturally maintains a fairly constant temperature between 50 and 60 °F (10 and 16 °C) depending on depth and latitude, so since your shelter is wrapped in earth should maintain a relatively constant temperature but warm over time from the heat of the occupants’ bodies and activity.
For sleeping even a sumer sleeping bag would probably suffice, but having a warmer sleeping bag would ensure comfort. The 5 gallon jugs are much easier to handle than the larger stationary barrels and may be useful after leaving the shelter for transporting water by hand or cart.
Worse than that if the air in a confined space becomes over saturated with the air we exhale, carbon dioxide can build-up and result in sedation and death. When stuck underground for days at a time you could go a little batty, so having something to help pass the time would be good. If you can standardize on a smaller set of battery sizes like AA and AAA you’ll have better luck over time. I would say count these out unless you have a generator and hundreds of gallons of fuel stored – not to mention a place to run such a device that is not easily detectable.
Since many people subscribe to the notion that desperate times call for desperate measures, and that desperate people will be almost impossible to reason with, you should avoid them at all costs.
But there will still be lingering fallout which you’ll want to avoid ingesting, inhaling, or getting on your skin. Theoretically this should allow you to keep your outside clothes very clean and easily rinsed-off. Water would be at a premium so anything that could help you stay clean and leave the fallout outside would be great.
It seems like a good product to test for daily use and cheap insurance for potential fallout protection. Many of us are waking up to the nuclear threat again, this time without the paranoia that comes through misinformation, and facing it head-on. But the main source of the fear comes from uncertainly and our inability to detect radiation without a geiger counter.
While it might seem paranoid, if you had a small digital geiger counter in your pocket it would be very quick, easy, and inconspicuous to check the waterline before jumping in. I hope this article gives you more confidence about the potential threat and how you can prepare. In other words, preparing a secure shelter (home), and a reserve of essential supplies (water & food) can make tough times less trying and help you avoid falling into desperation.
As a quick reminder the two strongest nuclear arms defended BRICS nations flex their muscles with public displays of their nuclear might, (see videos below). The United States, China, and Russia are reinforcing their nuclear defenses and military capabilities. The truth is that it’s a festering wound on the Japanese coastline that could turn from bad to worse.
I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but the radiation from nuclear weapons decays quickly – with a half life measured in hours not years. This radioactive material then falls back to earth and decays quickly, since it was not radioactive in the first place. Fallout decays quickly that you may only need to stay in the shelter full time for at about 3 days, preferably longer. So if you can, shelter in place with at least 3-feet of dirt (or other material that provides at least 10 halving thicknesses) between you and the radioactive fallout.
If the blast was an isolated one, like a terrorist nuke, civilization will not likely collapse and most people will survive and life should return to normal for the majority of the population. It would be the disruption of the global economy and our over-reliance on supply chains and just-in-time deliveries of food, water, electricity and other necessities that would bring us to our knees.
The reason is simple… located at a nuclear power plant site is thousands of pounds highly radioactive material and thousands, if not millions, of gallons of contaminated water.
You’d need to be flexible since it would be impossibly to determine ahead of time how far, in what direction, and how much radioactive material could be expelled from the damaged reactors.
If you had a fallout shelter you could shelter in place but since the radioactive material spewing from the reactor site stays radioactive for many years you’ll still need to evacuate to a safe region before your supplies run out. The letters spell burnt out computers and other electrical systems and perhaps even a return to the dark ages if it were to mark the beginning of a nuclear war. In such a case, the gamma radiation released during the flash cycle of the weapon would react with the upper layer of the earth’s atmosphere and strip electrons free from the air molecules, producing electromagnetic radiation similar to broad-band radio waves (10 kHz-100 MHz) in the process.
It’s believed that the electrical surge of the EMP from such an explosion would be strong enough to knock out much of the civilian electrical equipment over the whole country.
In the levels created by a nuclear weapon, it would not pose a health hazard to plants, animals, or man PROVIDED it isn’t concentrated. It isn’t that the equipment itself is really all that sensitive, but that the surge would be so concentrated that nothing working on low levels of electricity would survive. This short stretch of metal puts the device within the troughs of the nuclear-generated EMP wave and will keep the equipment from getting a damaging concentration of electrons. The trick is that it must REALLY be hardened from the real thing, not just EMP-proof on paper.
This includes large electric motors, vacuum tube equipment, electrical generators, trans- formers, relays, and the like. These include IC circuits, microwave transistors, and Field Effect Transistors (FET’s). Despite what you may have read or heard, these boxes do NOT have to be air- tight due to the long wave length of EMP; boxes can be made of wire screen or other porous metal.
Grounding a Faraday box is NOT necessary and in some cases actually may be less than ideal. Care must also be taken that the door is covered with foil AND electrically connected to the shield with a wire and screws or some similar set up.
These shelters are covered inside with metal foil and have metal screens which cover all air vents and are connected to the metal foil. In practice, the entire system is not grounded in the traditional electrical wiring sense of actually making contact to the earth at some point in its circuitry.
The very prudent may wish to buy spare electronic ignition parts and keep them a car truck (perhaps inside a Faraday box). Unfortunately, a little-known Federal dictum prohibits the NRC from requiring power plants to withstand the effects of a nuclear war. The conductivity of nearly any metal is good enough to allow the carriers to easily realign to cancel external fields. Maine has become the first state in the nation to pass legislation ordering its grid to be hardened against an electromagnetic pulse. If you dona€™t wrap it completely in aluminum foil youa€™ll be able to call yourself from another phone.
According to Radasky, that country during the cold war hardened some of its critical infrastructure against EMPs, such as water works. But ignoring this problem doesn’t help, it inadvertently gives those responsible for managing this technology more room to make mistakes. So the logical low cost and simple preparation is to prepare a simple pantry of food reserves you rotate through. You might have the materials lying around in your garage right now – and if not the cost to build one is very low and can sometimes be done in less than 10 minutes. If the box is grounded to the earth (third prong in household wiring or to a metal rod stuck in the ground) it should work better, but this is not required. But these require inputs and conditions (fuel, wind, sunny days, etc) that may not be available if you’re stuck underground for some time.
Depending on where you are in the fallout patterns, you should only need to stay underground for 3 days before you are able to take short trips outside. As time passes the shelter will warm so the layers of clothes will need to come off and a 12VDC fan would be a niuce addition. The larger barrels may be useful for rainwater collection in the future or continue as water storage. But a system like this also assumes that you don’t intend to reuse grey water, drain water from washing hands, dishes, and showering. There are several manufacturers of NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) air filters and these will provide the best protection against dangerous materials outside. So if you are in a remote location with only a few access points, these systems can alert you to animal & human movement at a greater distance than most motion sensors.

Many of these high energy consumption devices would require a very large, expensive, and easily spotted off-grid power system with multiple photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, etc. So avoiding having anything outside that would attract their attention, like a big photovoltaic array or a spinning wind turbine, is a good idea – at least until the situation normalizes. Typically this outfit would have to be some kind of rain suit with rubber boots, but in the eyes of other more desperate survivors this may make them stand out like a soar thumb. We live in a nuclear world; but nuclear preparedness has become such a taboo topic that most people avoid it all together.
Shielding can be as simple and cheap as 3-feet of dirt coupled with the avoidance of inhaling and ingesting radioactive material. If this were to happen that relatively low level radiation (compared to the initial radiation levels created by a bomb) could travel toward the Americas and potentially wind up in certain foods.
When you have the tools on hand to detect radiation, your fear level drops significantly (speaking from personal experience).
The truth is that nuclear war is easily survivable if you’re not in a blast zone and have adequate shelter and supplies. Avoiding exposure to radiation over time is essential because even low levels of radiation can damage to your body faster than your body can heal. When people are caught off-guard and put suddenly into tough situations they can quickly fall into desperation.
Due to the fact that not everyone will prepare, you can do yourself and community a big favor by preparing to take care of yourself now.
The radiation from reactor accidents decays very slowly and can contaminate large regions for many generations.
The bombs would be the catalyst for sure, but our lack of self reliance would slow our recovery. When containment of those materials is damaged, they may leak into the environment and are impossible to clean up. The reader should seek his or her own legal or financial advice from a qualified professional. Below is a detailed write up about EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) and how to protect yourself from it. Adding to the problems is the fact that its effects are hard to predict; even electronics designers have to test their equipment in powerful EMP simulators before they can be sure it is really capable of with standing the effect. These electrons would follow the earth’s magnetic field and quickly circle toward the ground where they would be finally dampened. Protecting electrical equipment is simple if it can be unplugged from AC outlets, phone systems, or long antennas. These design elements can eliminate the chance an EMP surge from power lines or long antennas damaging your equipment. The Ovonic threshold device is a solid-state switch capable of quickly opening a path to ground when a circuit receives a massive surge of EMP. These might even survive a massive surge of EMP and would likely to survive if a few of the above precautions were taking in their design and deployment.
If you have electrical equipment with such com- ponents, it must be very well protected if it is to survive EMP. If the object placed in the box is insulated from the inside surface of the box, it will not be effected by the EMP traveling around the outside metal surface of the box. Ideally the floor is then covered with a false floor of wood or with heavy carpeting to insulate everything and everyone inside from the shield (and EMP). According to sources working at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, cars have proven to be resistant to EMP in actual tests using nuclear weapons as well as during more recent tests (with newer cars) with the US Military’s EMP simulators.
Discovering that you have one of the few cars knocked out would not be a good way to start the onset of terrorist attack or nuclear war.
But it seems probable that many vehicles WILL be working following the start of a nuclear war even if no precautions have been taken with them. This means that, in the event of a nuclear war, many nuclear reactors’ control systems might will be damaged by an EMP surge. And we are now into Solar Cycle 23, with solar flares common and expected to continue until the first of next year. In this case, the box was perfect and I couldna€™t call my phone because there was no signal in it. Remember to isolate the bottom of the box (with wood, cardboard or plastic) and to keep away the electronics inside from the Aluminum Screen. If you dona€™t use on a daily basis what you want to protecta€¦ just keep it in its original box and wrap it with heavy duty aluminum foil. Mythbusters built one that was quite effective, blocking radios, cell phone signal, etc, out of a simple box of brass mesh. If the radio is too close to the wall of the can newspaper is not enough to prevent the charge from arcing on antenna or input jack.
More public awareness of the threat will add pressure to move toward a future without nuclear power and weapons. Electromagnetic pulses don’t hurt people directly, they just wipe out communications and infrastructure. This turns your shelter stay more into an underground camping trip but it gives you a solid foundation for survival.
So instead start with solutions that don’t require anything but what you have with you, like your arms and legs. Once empty these large barrels could be removed from the shelter as long as the access ways are wide enough. If you use natural and biodegradable soaps you may be able to filter and purify grey water for consumption or more hand washing. A natural convective current can be created by a tall exhaust vent but if additional air filtration is desired (and it is desired but not necessarily required in all cases) an air blower fan is needed.
DVD drives and hard drives tend to burn more power than movies played off other types of card-based media. Batteries would not be damaged by an EMP but solar panels could be, so storing backup solar photovoltaic battery charging systems in a faraday cage is also a good idea. The simple solution is to learn how to detect radiation and acquire the proper equipment so you can check for it yourself. This news isn’t intended to scare you, just bring you up to speed on the current situation.
The radiation from a power plant meltdown is far more dangerous and difficult to deal with than the fallout from a nuclear blast over time  – so after a nuclear blast, if you can stay sheltered for at least three days (preferably the majority of 7 to 30 days), you can survive a nuclear war. Since the material in power plants stays radioactive for a long time, unlike the temporarily charged fallout from a blast, we may be stuck with low level radiation for some time. Within 30 days the radiation levels will be low enough that you’ll be able to exit the shelter permanently. Without a geiger counter you’d really have no idea if what you were eating was contaminated. Once you understand EMP, you can take a few simple precautions to protect yourself and equipment from it. Thus, strategies based on using lightning arrestors or lightning-rod grounding techniques are destined to failure in protecting equipment from EMP. Another useful strategy is to use grounding wires for each separate instrument which is coupled into a system so that EMP has more paths to take in grounding itself. Use of this or a similar device would assure survival of equipment during a massive surge of electricity.
It is important to note that cars are NOT 100 percent EMP proof; some cars will most certainly be effected, especially those with fiberglass bodies or located near large stretches of metal.
One area of concern are explosives connected to electrical discharge wiring or designed to be set off by other electric devices.
In such a case, the core-cooling controls might become inoperable and a core melt down and breaching of the containment vessel by radioactive materials into the surrounding area might well result.
Anyway, the phone test is 99% accurate, because the phone signals are a bit higher in frequency than an EMP. The only requirements are that the material be conductive, and that any holes be smaller than the wavelength of the desired radiation.
When these two human waste ingredients mix the smell is horrible, as you might have experienced in a porta-potti type outhouse. If you use a small diameter pipe, which is also desirable for dampening the overpressure from a blast, you can use a small 12VDC fan.
But if your budget doesn’t include a few thousand dollars for an NBC filter consider using normal HEPA filters and carbon filters.
But be careful when using any infrared illumination cameras since these stand out as beacons to anyone with a night scoped rifle. Look into putting your movies on thumb drives or large memory cards for the best power performance. For example you may see cheap old survey meters and geiger counters on eBay, but they may or may not be functional or accurate. So any shielding you can give yourself can give yourself the better chance of staying well. You’ll still need to content with a few isotopes, iodine-131, strontium-90 and caesium-137, since these decay slower and may show up in some food sources for some time . If you want to be 100% sure that you made an EMP hardened Faraday cage then you should place a small turned on radio. It is also advisable that the cage be grounded and very thick, if full blockage of radiation is desired. When kept separate, covered, and sealed away the odor can be easily controlled and lived along side. This fan will likely be your highest power consumer in the shelter, and the most critical for survival.
To these potential predators an infrared light source would alert them to the presence of a survivor with electricity. Nuclear bursts close to the ground are dampened by the earth so that EMP effects are more or less confined to the region of the blast and heat wave. It could become concentrated by metal girders, large stretches of wiring (including telephone lines), long antennas, or similar set ups. Even though the plane, high over the earth, isn’t grounded it will sustain little damage. EMP, like nuclear blasts and fallout, can be survived if you have the know how and take a few precautions before hand. So 30 days after a nuclear war the radiation levels are so low you can return to living above ground full time. But EMP becomes more pronounced and wide spread as the size and altitude of a nuclear blast is increased since the ground; of these two, altitude is the quickest way to produce greater EMP effects.
Ammunition, mines, grenades and the like in large quantities might be prone to damage or explosion by EMP, but in general aren’t all that sensitive to EMP.
As a nuclear device is exploded higher up, the earth soaks up fewer of the free electrons produced before they can travel some distance. Consequently, storage of equipment in Faraday boxes on wooden shelves or the like does NOT require that everything be grounded. If your doctor says you have a 5% chance of dying a€¦ wouldna€™t it be crazy not to do something about it? Depending on the severity of the war, the time to return to normalcy will vary, but life will continue.
