We just got our power back. Imagine a world where our recent storm will seem like a Sunday picnic. That’s what’s in store for us, as a nation, should we suffer an electronic magnetic pulse attack.
The nation’s electrical grid system is extremely vulnerable. During this storm, we were still able to get around in our cars, use our cell phones, go to warming centers, buy food, etc. In the event of an attack, newer cars will cease operating, cell phones, water systems, telephones and computers will not work.
In other words, we will immediately go back to the 18th century. It is estimated that 90 percent of the population will be dead within one year, and that anarchy will break out within 48 hours.
The United States does not have the equipment necessary to replace all that would be lost. What can we do? Barrage our senators and representatives to pass a bill that would protect our nation’s electric grid before we become a third world country.
