Experts Warn Congress: Attack On Power Grid Could Lead to “Catastrophic Civilian Casualties”

There are few things that could revert our modern day civilization back to the Stone Age. Most of them are naturally occurring events such as a massive asteroid impact, a global Tsunami, or a super volcano. But as far as man-made events go, an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) attack on our national power grid would be so devastating that, according to a panel of experts who addressed Congressional members on Capitol Hill this week, a nuclear strike would pale in comparison. Such an event could originate from our sun as a powerful solar discharge or...

State warns on EMP: ‘There’s no help coming’

China’s Preferred Weapon – The Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)

Battles are waged on the battlefield and on the high seas and may take hours. Skirmishes in the air are measured in minutes. The next major battle the US and its allies will see may only take 200 nanoseconds. And sensitive electronics aren’t the only things destroyed. The human body can by damaged as well.

Map: Areas Of Probable Power System Collapse: “130 Million Lacking Power For Several Years”

One Second After audiobook: Full-length Series

I read this book, One Second After and I was astonished at the fact it portrayed a very realistic scenario for what would happen after an EMP event. The folks over at American Prepper Nation have done a wonderful job by posting the ENTIRE audio series of this great book. I have a great respect for Mr. Forstchen, so I thought our readers would be interested as well.
