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.

An EMP is typically characterized by short bursts of electromagnetic energy across a range of frequencies. This means that EMPs are capable of disrupting a large number of devices across a broad spectrum of frequencies.
A massive solar flare could produce an EMP so powerful that every electronic device in the world could be disabled instantly. Although the effects of a man-made EMP are very serious, it is considered a somewhat localized event. However, the effects of fallout from a high-altitude nuclear detonation have not been studied in great detail. Depending on the strength and intensity of an EMP blast, the world could be sent into the dark ages in an instant. Every electronic device you have will be destroyed following an EMP unless you have taken steps to protect them from the pulse.
Just about every manufacturing process currently used relies on electricity meaning that new products cannot be made instantly. Now that you have an understanding of the many far-reaching consequences possible in the wake of a massive EMP, the next step is learning tactics that allow you to survive in these conditions without the assistance of technology while avoiding the droves of people that are not equipped with this knowledge that have resorted to violence as a means of survival. If you do have all of that, and the knowledge, skills and will to put your plans into effect, then you might just survive the initial chaos. There is now, I believe in the last stages of development, a seemingly excellent windmill developed by Sauer Energy - -the "WindCharger" that any survivalist should at least consider. I paid my American Express bill by phone and was offered Insurance for my electronics if an EMP occurred and zapped my electronics in my home.
Well that's nice but it won't do you any good if you cannot contact American Express NOW WILL IT.You see another way for them to make money off of you.

Considered an unlikely event by most people in years past, the more it has been discussed in both the private sector and the Pentagon, the more likely it has become that we will one day be attacked by an EMP, seems to be what the data on the EMP threat is saying.
Our electricity driven society, built on a complex web of intersecting wires and computer circuits, will suddenly come to a standstill.
300,000 million people (the population of the United States) will quickly descend on the packaged food left on store shelves in the initial hours of the realization that an EMP had taken place. There will be additional panic that will become widespread across the states — a concern that grocery stores are shutting down permanently, due to the EMP. If that’s not bad enough, all foods requiring refrigeration will start going bad within just a few hours.

Just say for a moment your car is turned off, sitting in the garage, would a EMT attack still decommission it? And military vechiles, will not run so the forces will have to run or walk , and looking at the poice department they are all fatties and can hardly walk never mind run.? The military is of course aware of EMP and many of their systems have been hardened against this threat.
Im Guessing that there are still Thousands of People who still Have vehicles, Tools , Sewing machines and other non-chipped items that would still be operable after an EMP. An EMP attack on the USA would be the best thing ever to happen to you war mongering genocidal bastards. There is a lot of conjecture as to whether or not non-running vehicles with computers will operate when started up after an EMP.
We functioned just fine as a nation back in the early 80s, before we became a micro-chipped nightmare.
On a positive note, steam engines (trains) still abound, gasifiers are simple to make (i’ve made three) and they will run anything from generators to cars and old 8n ford tractors. Ofcourse bicycles and hand crank generators will abound but you cannot leave out the trusty Horse, Mule and wagons for a multitude of task from grading roads, logging, moving produce in bulk, mail. When all the electronics are fried, you need replacement part that where on a zone that where not affected.
An EMP attack will be quite bad (understatement) even if it happens at night with less planes in the air. So I checked out the link to the and although there were multiple google hits for various papers and website citations the site itself is down. Does it make anyone else a little paranoid that the commission to study EMP effects is not active? I have been hearing more and more about a possible EMP attack and have decided to start specifically preparing for such an event. I already have some steel ammo boxes of varying sizes and have started securing some supplies.
Lets hear it folks – I will summarize responses and give my own take likely next week. Then you're gonna love my free PDF, 20 common survival items, 20 uncommon survival uses for each. A good layering plan is to seal your separate items in anti-stat bags, line your metal boxes entirely, including a top, with an insulator,(cardboard will do) and make sure your lid makes a metallic seal with the box (foil tape). I have actually turned two large galvanized garbage cans into vaults and they have been loaded for the last two years. Ooops, very important: test equipment (multimeter at the least)and gas or battery soldering and electronic repair equipment. At our retreat we buried several spare ecu’s, a complete ham station, 3 generators, a milking machine and other do-dads.
Double shink wrapped everything, put them in mylar bags and then placed them in waterproof bags. Put it all in the vault, sealed it with the gasket then used silicone caulking and added five layers of industrial shrink wrap. Dug a hole 8 ft.deep, dropped it in, put 2 lead plates to cover the top and filled in the hole.
Is it possible to use an insulated ice chest or beer cooler made from styrofoam as a Faraday cage? A faraday cage is effective up to the point that the pulse has a frequency that is higher (shorter wavelength ) than the grid of the cage. 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. In his off time, he is a single father who enjoys playing with his kids and watching football. 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. Not only have EMPs been weaponized, meaning that a rival military force could use one against the United States, terrorist organizations have also adopted the technology. Although not an exact comparison, the range of frequencies experienced during an EMP is most comparable to the difference between very low frequency AM (Amplitude Modulation) radio transmissions and the much higher FM (Frequency Modulation) spectrum. Lightning is a very powerful natural event but the electromagnetic pulse created is relatively localized. No solar flares have ever been recorded that are even close to the size required to generate an EMP of this magnitude but the possibility is greater than ever based on studies of the sun. These are the most powerful man-made EMPs as the EMP waves are made stronger by interactions with the Earth’s magnetic field. A high-altitude EMP blast could knock out the electrical grid in large areas of a country but it is not a global phenomenon. A solar flare, for instance, could disable electronics and communications devices around the world indefinitely.
Picture a world similar to when electricity was first introduced to general public and massive infrastructure projects began to create the grid as you know it today. Since the majority of people have not made preparations for post-apocalyptic survival, they will be frantically searching for answers and solutions for their circumstances.
Parts 2 and 3 discuss tactics you can use to increase your chances of survival during this chaotic time. But theoretically, an automobile with a metal body (not fiberglass) should withstand most EMP situations. A coronal mass ejection (CME) can cause great harm if it is strong enough, is directed at earth and has the right polarity. A terrorist group could roam around the country with the weapon in a van, knocking out critical substations that could black out our cities for long periods of time. Airways, Southwest Airlines, and many others) that are in the sky over America at any given time.

You are going to want to have some means of determining what is truly blown and what you can salvage, and the means to do repairs. You will need to have them, if the major electrical grid should go dark to have any info on what is happening outside of your visual range. Like anything else, if you don’t know how to use your gear before the flag goes up, it may be nearly impossible to learn afterward. Although it is designed to prevent microwaves from beaming out and cooking our brains when we look at the popcorn bag expand, however, you can use it to store electronics as well, Faradays work both ways.
If that is the type of pulse then it will pass right through as if the equipment weren’t even in the box. 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. 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. If that weren’t enough, scientists acknowledge that a large solar flare could produce a natural EMP powerful enough to disable electronics around the world simultaneously. EMPs are actually a common occurrence; however, most of them are very weak in nature and do not affect surrounding electronic equipment. Lights may flicker in the presence of a large lightning discharge but the effects are usually not much more severe than that. Non-nuclear EMPs are a more recent development and are used more as a localized solution during battle than a large scale weapon. This increases the likelihood that the effects will not be permanent as unaffected areas try to help. Even a more localized event could leave entire states or even countries without power or any other form of technology. Even if you protect some things, it is impossible to protect everything; especially large items like vehicles. Essentially, there will be no way for you to find out new information about what is going on.
A similar phenomenon will occur following an EMP assuming that societal breakdown does not destroy any chance of overcoming the disaster. Cars don't protect from fallout, and I think thats where people often don't delineate what a car can or cannot protect. There wont be any drones or robots and monsanto will go under along with all the other multi-national corps.
I know about the Carrington event, I know about the wacky powerline event in Canada a few decades ago, I agree that a lot of electronics could be fried but… after a career as a pilot in the military, I have not seen EMP weapons, I have never seen a jet down due to EMP, we have never changed our battle plan based on EMP (nuke blast, yes, EMP, no). Most of this is packed in its original shipping to provide a good insulator from the metal can. I am adding a third can that will contain the 450 watts of flexible solar panels that I have. 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. Although an EMP event may seem more like a science fiction movie, it could very likely be the event that catapults the world into an apocalyptic frenzy. For the purposes of this guide EMPs refer to large scale pulse events that have the potential to permanently disable electrical and electronic devices. Some nuclear weapons are currently being manufactured for the sole purpose of generating an EMP blast instead of physical damage caused by the explosion. At first, many people will shrug off the power outage as a temporary setback akin to a bad storm damaging the local power grid.
This includes GPS (Global Positioning System) units, radios, electronic fire starters, and every appliance in your home. Even though it has no direct effect on electronics, batteries and backup systems will work only so long and then will die from the lack of electricity from the grid. 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. It won’t take long for society to comprehend the seriousness of the situation at which time things will quickly deteriorate. True we have become a spoilt brat society with a certain class becoming the Whinny ass Litigates; but once those people get their asses handed to them they either can join a work together society or Go hang themselves. I am now reaching the point in my preps that I have started putting a few things away in case of a solar or EMP event.
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. Damn can you imagine what would it be like with no more rush hour smog or the sound of jets drowning out your conversation? 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. Protecting a sufficiently large percentage of our population from EMP to ensure our survival would be pretty easy and the cost would be next to nothing…but the PTB are too damn dumb to embark upon a realistic course of action, which would consist of a few simple rule changes, so most of the population is going to be screwed if a EMP occurs. In addition, he emphasizes how an EMP be able to (and would) strike with almost certainly no warning to the general public. But it then goes on to give details how to decide that we’ve been hit with an EMP by trying other electronic plans. While we previously practice some crisis preparation substance including food storage, cooking options, heating system, light, defense, etc., this had a quantity of suggestions and personal experience with various products or commodities that was extremely helpful to us. It be able to even happen because of a big solar storm, not immediately from a terrorist nuclear device.It must be noted that a freighter immediately miles off one of our coasts might launch a short to medium range missile with a comparatively small nuclear bomb, and obtain it high sufficient to make a devastating EMP crossways hundreds or even thousands of square miles. Preparation is a requirement.While the ghost of an EMP disaster is extremely frightening, the consideration of being wedged not ready for the day the lights go out reserved we up at night.
Electromagnetic Pulse Survival has given us some excellent ideas concerning what to contain on give so we be able to keep going.…[read more]And we are really sure without doubt that Electromagnetic Pulse Survival Not a Scam and also a Legitimate Product.
