Hello Everyone & Welcome Back !
Earlier this week, there were additional articles - one by the Huffington Post & another by The Wall Street Journal confirming the impending EMP disaster. Both articles also confirmed North Korea & China working on EMP bombs! Furthermore, both articles point out terrorist attacks using EMP bombs designed at knocking out entire countries (USA) with resulting long lingering deaths of 90% of population via no electricity / electronics / food / water / medical - in short "hell on earth!"
To quote from the Wall Street Journal article:
"Imagine you're a terrorist with a single nuclear weapon. You could wipe out the U.S. city of your choice, or you could decide to destroy the infrastructure of the entire U.S. economy and leave millions of Americans to die of starvation or want of medical care."
This almost looks like an invitation!
Another quote form the Wall Street Journal:
"The latter scenario is the one envisioned by a long-running commission to assess the threat from electromagnetic pulse, or EMP. The subject of its latest, and little discussed, report to Congress is the effect an EMP attack could have on civilian infrastructure. If you're prone to nightmares, don't read it before bedtime.
An EMP attack occurs when a nuclear bomb explodes high in the Earth's atmosphere. The electromagnetic pulse generated by the blast destroys all the electronics in its line of sight. For a bomb detonated over the Midwest, that includes most of the continental U.S. Few, if any, people die in the blast. It's what comes next that has the potential to be catastrophic. Since an EMP surge wipes out electronics, virtually every aspect of modern American life would come to a standstill.
The commission's list of horribles is 181 pages long. The chapter on food, for instance, catalogs the disruptions up and down the production chain as food spoils or has no way to get to market. Many families have food supplies of several days or more. But after that, and without refrigeration, what? The U.S. also has 75,000 dams and reservoirs, 168,000 drinking water-treatment facilities, and 19,000 wastewater treatment centers -- all with pumps, valves and filters run by electricity."
"The commission offers extensive recommendations for how industry and government can protect against the effects of an EMP attack and ensure a quicker recovery. They include "hardening" more equipment to withstand an electromagnetic pulse; making sure replacement equipment is on hand; training recovery personnel; increasing federal food stockpiles; and many others.
If not, our vulnerability "can both invite and reward attack," the commission's chairman, William Graham, told Congress last month. Iran's military writings "explicitly discuss a nuclear EMP attack that would gravely harm the United States," he said. James Shinn, an assistant secretary of defense, has said that China is developing EMP weapons. The commission calls an EMP attack "one of a small number of threats that can hold our society at risk of catastrophic consequences." The threat is real. It's past time to address it."
The Wall Street Journal focused mainly on terrorist attack, not mentioning natural occurrence (solar flares) especially the impending "Carrington" sized event predicted to happen with the next 10 years = it will happen & no one knows when! The Post article mentions both (natural & EMP bomb) while pointing out North Korea's EMP bomb experiments & goal of attacking the USA with it.
According to both articles (& sources) it is a matter of time which happens first - natural or terrorist attack. The world & USA are not prepared! It is almost comic & tragic at the same time= "the commission" thinks "increasing federal food stockpiles" will adequately protect of even address the after mat - well what happens to the end of production of food & water delivery?? How do you stockpile this let alone deliver to marketplace? How does food endure without refrigeration? How does population live without food, water, power for heat & transportation?
Again I am most definitely not a "doomsday" proponent and think of myself as a solutions person for the benefit of all. Absolutely PPP EVs are the answer especially they are portable power plants & manufactured EMP immune. They also offer immediate dissemination - matter of weeks in mass production and would fully thwart any EMP event be it natural or EMP bomb.
I think it is a matter of time -likely post ultralight flight of Renewed American Spirit Paris landing- the world becomes aware & informed of this technology then implements on a country by country basis.
