The electromagnetic pulse attack and EMP scenarios
Imagine if a solar storm the size of the 1859 Carrington Event struck our modern society? Delicate wires run everywhere nowadays. Filaments, computer chips, hard drives, cell phones and electrical lines exist that stretch thousands of miles. Have you stopped to think about your vehicle’s computer system? But first, let’s talk briefly about a man-made version of the Perfect Solar Storm – the nuclear EMP event.
It has recently been revealed that North Korea has a satellite with EMP capability that in fact passes over the continental US twice daily. The current Administration has refused to implement a strategy to simply eliminate it. Of course, the obvious question is why? This threat is well-known to Congress. This is a mystery, unless of course there is a “hidden agenda.”
According to the 2004 Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States of EMP Attack (Executive Report),
“Several potential adversaries have or can acquire the capability to attack the United States with a high-altitude nuclear weapon-generated electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A determined adversary can achieve an EMP attack capability without having a high level of sophistication.”
It goes on to briefly address the effects:
“EMP is one of a small number of threats that can hold our society at risk of catastrophic consequences. EMP will cover the wide geographic region within line of sight to the nuclear weapon. It has the capability to produce significant damage to critical infrastructures and thus to the very fabric of US society…”
The Commission’s chairman has testified that within one year of such an attack, 70% to 90% of Americans would likely be dead from such causes as disease and violence. The EMP blast itself is not destructive to human beings. It is the aftereffects. It is also highly plausible that many Americans would die of starvation due to the interruption of the nation’s food supply.
According to the Washington Department of Health, Office of Radiation Protection, “A 1.4 Megaton bomb launched about 250 miles above Kansas would destroy most of the electronics that were not protected in the entire Continental United States.” By the way, this includes the entire electrical grid, much of manufactured with Chinese parts.
So, as you can see, both a massive solar storm from the arrival of Planet X and an EMP event could quite possibly end civilization as we know it. I know that sounds drastic, but in the United States and other technologically-advanced countries, how would the mass population handle a prolonged event with very little or quite possibly no electricity? As the Commission noted, our society is utterly dependent on our electrical grid for everything:
- Trucking and transportation
- Gas stations and refineries
- Information and communications
- Commercial production of food
- Water purification
- Most of our military capability
These are only a handful of things that we take for granted because they are always there. If the gas stations were out of order and no refineries were able to produce more fuel, can you imagine how quickly our “civilized society” would break down? With that event alone, grocery store shelves become empty within a matter of days and farmers can’t transport any goods. If you were not aware, grocery stores do not stock much extra produce or food “in the back of the store.” In order to maintain a high profit margin, stores maintain only a few days’ worth of staples until another shipment arrives. This allows them to conserve space and keep overhead lower.
Once the gas stops flowing and the shelves are wiped clean, how long will your neighbor remain civil?
Several tests and scenarios have shown that cell phones will be one of the first tell-tale signs of an electromagnetic event because of the enormous percentage of the population carrying one. If the power grid were to simply go down, this wouldn’t affect your cell phone. Depending on your location, your local cell towers probably have back-up power systems, as well. However, the cell towers, backup power and your cell phone will ALL be disabled after an electromagnetic event, offering you a clue as to what has just happened.
This is where survival preparations are needed. Buy a good book on Planet X and survival preparations. Mine is available on Amazon: Planet X – The 2017 Arrival. In effect, the government has taken actions that are both counterproductive and what few positive actions they have taken, such as the Deep Underground Military Bunkers (DUMBs), serve to protect only “the elite.” Since the government has done absolutely nothing to protect you, you have to protect yourself. This article serves as a chilling reminder that no preparations have been made.
Remember: one EMP burst and the US goes dark. One approach of Planet X and the majority of the world goes dark.
