We are rightly concerned with the political and economic situation in America, but nevertheless, there is a very high likelihood that the failure of our national electrical grid and national infrastructures is what will get most of us killed within this decade.
The probability of a solar or nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) occurring over America this decade is probably more likely than not. It is a scientific fact that an EMP can put America back to the infrastructure conditions of the 1800′s but trying to support ten times the population.
We should be aware that an EMP can happen at any time but most in America are either not aware of this threat or they are treating this threat to our society as if it were little more than science fiction.
It is critical that Americans wake up and do something about this threat because this is by far the number one reason why the majority of Americans may not even see the next decade. So before you start making plans for the 2020′s, you had better make sure that your representatives in Washington have taken the action necessary to make your survival to that decade even a likelihood.
They need to make the hardening of America’s electrical, communications and electronic infrastructures the number one priority for the self defense of this nation.
There are at least three ways that most of this nation could find themselves literally in the dark for weeks, months or even years within this decade (the percentage is my best guesstimate):
1. Successful nuclear EMP’s over America originating from an enemy. > 50%
2. A Solar EMP due to an explosion on the sun. >10%
3. A coordinated enemy cyber attack on our grid, power plants, and communications infrastructures. > 90% (An enemy cyber attack is probably not going to lead to millions of deaths in America although fairly long local power outages could bring riots in the cities that have been impacted by the power outages and also bring local shortages and martial law)
America simply cannot support its present populations without modern electricity, electronics and communications. The estimate from the experts is that 70 to 90 percent of the population of the United States would die if they could not get the national power grid restored within weeks.
Whether you would be one that survives to live in the EMP generation might depend on where you live, divine providence, or on your own preparation for survival without electrical power. Will you be able to survive in an environment of no electricity and a complete breakdown of society? Most will not. There are small areas in America that are not dependent on the grid but those people would still be vulnerable to the other general infrastructure failures.
This danger is well known by your politicians because the experts have explained it to them over-and-over-again since 2004 but they have done nothing to protect you from this EMP danger. Within the last year the bill to protect our huge high voltage transformers from an EMP passed in the House but died in the Senate. Under the politically correct guise of not spending more money, many are willing to risk most of our lives for about a billion dollars!
There is a lot that needs to be done to minimize the damage from an EMP induced grid failure but the number one thing is protecting these 300 or so very high voltage transformers. Even if the power plants are up and running after an EMP they will not be transmitting electricity large distances without these transformers. These huge transformers take years to build and they are not made in the USA. So we must protect the high voltage transformers that we now have and we also need to put in place some spares around the country.
Another thing that we can do fairly easily at modest cost is to produce many more local backup generators than we have now and put them in place around the country in case of power failures. There are countless needs for back-up generators even in the local power failures caused by hurricanes, earthquakes, snow and ice storms and such.
Sure, we might lose this country to communists or fascists within this decade and even have an economic meltdown but even if those things happen most of us will still survive the decade to try to deal with the situation. However, if we lose our modern infrastructures because the power grid failed, most of us will never even see the new decade. So call your representatives and tell them to get going on protecting this nation from an EMP.
We have a solar maximum coming at us right about now and it will last for two or three more years. In those years there is about a ten percent chance that an explosion on the sun will blow out at least some of our huge high voltage transformers if nothing is done to protect them.
Both Iran and North Korea are developing ICBM’s and nuclear weapons. They are also acquiring surface ships and subs to deliver shorter range missiles. China is a threat and so is Russia (they even told us so). Any of these nations might think that they could pull off an EMP from sea without America even knowing who it was that did it.
We can fret about politics, our national debt, and all the rest but it will all be in vain if we are destroyed because we took no action to protect our modern infrastructure.
We in America are really going to look pretty stupid laying in our graves destroyed because of our own modern achievements. We are stupider than those godless fascists that hate us, if after becoming dependent on our modern inventions, we do not even know enough to protect their vulnerabilities from those in the world that want us dead.
If God wants to destroy this nation in a day, an EMP would be one way to do it. If Americans keep putting stupid wooden headed idols on thrones don’t expect these dead-heads to suddenly get smarts. It is time that Americans took the number one threat (lawlessness) and the number two threat (EMP) seriously.
