FEMA is preparing. They are always preparing. That’s what they do. What they do a really bad job of is communication.
It may not even be their fault entirely. People are fractured in how they consume information. Some get it through social media while others still have the issues of utilizing the nightly news.
When we read articles like this its hard to understand why we have not been alerted by, say, the president on issues of this size. However, it seems more people are paying attention to this sort of thing.
The idea that a sun storm, solar flare, coronal mass ejection has to penetrate our atmosphere to cause a catastrophe is just not the case anymore. If our massive collection of satellites are disrupted it will affect our world in severe and very troubling ways.
What would you do if you found yourself living off grid tomorrow?
- No Lights
- No Heat or AC
- No Electricity
- Unsafe Tap Water
- Poor Waste Management
Do you have the preps you might need to deal with the above mentioned situations? The answer for most is NO! However, if we see a powerful and direct connection from the sun and its powerful coronal mass ejections every aspect of our lives would change.
The Faraday Cage
You might consider something like a Faraday cage. These are insulated containers that protect electronics from the powerful EMP that could come from the sun or a nuclear weapon.
These are pretty easy to make and can be a game changer if you store things like emergency comms or digital information.
Skills of the 1800’s and Before
If FEMA’s fears come to fruition we will suddenly change from a society that is laden with convenience to one that now depends on lost skills.
You will have to get your own food, water, security and basically anything else you want.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
