DON'T BE SO QUICK TO DISMISS THE THREAT OF ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE (EMP)
For those you haven't really looked into it, I understand the initial skepticism - I really do. I also understand the reluctance to take the time to really learn about it, and why it's important now. That said, PLEASE don't be so quick to dismiss this threat and just move on. The threat of EMP (made-made and solar) is real, and there are practical solutions - and those solutions don't need to come from some big defense firm or company. In fact, many of the solutions simply involve better planning (including at the indivivual level), and taking simple measures to help protect key electronics and other infrestructures (and/or spare parts). Moreover, the the U.S. is FINALLY taking steps toward inacting some simple measures to start protecting its electric grids. This is actually a good news story - it's not 'doom-and-gloom.' You know what they say about an ounce of prevention right? Well, that can be done on all levels. Just think about what your life would be like if you had NO electricity or the things that rely on electricity for months, or even years. Don't think it can happen, or don't understand how it could happen? Well, PLEASE just take the time to look into this enough to better understand it.
