Despite an alarming report that came out nearly a decade ago, the EMP still stands at the forefront as one of the most destructive forces that could face humanity. Back when that report came out some experts said that 90% of the nation would die in the first year following a grid down EMP.
That’s a big deal!
Now, military might would not let a little thing like 90% of America’s population get in the way of developing more effective EMP weapons. In fact, a recent article published 2 days ago by One News Now went into how much of a threat Iran could present from the standpoint of an EMP attack.
Its important that we also look at how the EMP will be used on the battlefield. While many people look at an EMP as something that can kill societies, its also a powerful tool in the small scale. Imagine having the ability to shut down the power to all vehicles and power sources before an invasion? This could be beneficial on a small scale, as well.
With the advent of robotics it would make sense that short range, low powered EMP deterrents would come to the table. The question is, how long before he wrong people get these weapons in hand and what does a recovery really look like?
Just recently a draft of a report was put out by a commission within the government discussing the severity of attacks to the power grid. This document was very clear about the possibility of terrible outcomes. It was also very clear about the fact that Americans are simply not prepared for disasters.
This is just another reason for us to start prepping today and get better at being self sufficient and independent. Remember, how you live your life is totally up to you. You can move, you can quit, you can sell and you can change your life.
