FEMA is preparing. They are always preparing. That’s what they do. What they do a really bad job of is communication. In this case, they are preparing for a solar storm.
It may not even be their fault entirely. People consume information in many different ways these days. Some get it through social media while others still have the issues of utilizing the nightly news.
When we read articles like this it’s 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 solar storm, solar flare, or coronal mass ejection (CME) has to penetrate our atmosphere to cause a catastrophe is just not the case anymore. If our massive collection of satellites is disrupted it will affect our world in severe and very troubling ways.
Preparing for a Solar Storm
What would you do if you found yourself living off the grid tomorrow?
- No Lights
- No Heat or AC
- Unsafe Tap Water
- No Electricity
- 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 CME’s, every aspect of our lives would change.
The Faraday Cage
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 1800s 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.
