The EMP Threat (Part One): Nuclear and Man-Made

On last week’s episode of the Prepping for Tomorrow program, I began a two part series on the threat our nation faces from an EMP: Electromagnetic Pulse. 

In case you missed it, you can listen to it here:

How will America survive a complete collapse of our critical infrastructure following an EMP attack, whether naturally created by the sun, or man-made via a nuclear weapon?

In poll after poll, one of the threats facing our nation is the use of an electromagnetic pulse weapon to cause a grid down scenario. There are many bad actors on the international stage capable of terrorism on a massive scale. The list is long, including Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Syria and now even terrorist groups like ISIS. Each is capable of wreaking havoc in the US by shutting down our power grid through the use of an EMP, and enjoying the resulting chaos.


EMP: Electromagnetic Pulse – a threat from above to America’s soft underbelly below. The clock is ticking. One Second After. One Year After.

My analysis of the threat former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich termed the most significant that our nation faces, EMP: Electromagnetic Pulse, became a #1 Bestseller on Amazon in eight non-fiction genres!

I’ll also provide specific examples of the sun causing blackouts in North America. How strong were the solar storms that created these blackouts and what would happen if a solar event of the size and scope of the 1859 Carrington Event were to happen today?

Is America’s crumbling infrastructure our Achilles Heel? Is our dependence on electricity so ingrained in our society that it reveals a soft underbelly – our weakness?

EMP: Electromagnetic Pulse,  is a primer on the threats we face as a nation from the bad actors mentioned above. It explores the history of electromagnetic pulse technology, and discusses its use for both military and non-military purposes.

Finally, the all important issue of prepping will be addressed. How do you prepare for a collapsed power grid? When people flee the urban centers, looking for the key elements to survive – water, shelter, food, and medical attention, how will society react?

ABOUT THE PREPPING FOR TOMORROW SERIES came together in 2011 to share research with others on the subject of prepping. Originally designed as an informational website, Freedom Preppers quickly grew in prominence as its articles on preparedness were shared around the web. The goal of the Prepping for Tomorrow series is twofold. First, provide a detailed analysis of the threats we face as Americans. Second, give new and seasoned preppers alike the opportunity to enhance their preparedness plan with this knowledge.

Because you never know when the day before —

is the day before.

Prepare for tomorrow!

What if the preppers are right?

The media shapes public opinion in all formats including news, cinema and television shows. It should come as no surprise that everyone doesn’t necessarily form an opinion on every subject. Nor should you be shocked to hear that most opinions are uninformed. We can all give countless examples of this. Most Americans are sheeple, unable to think for themselves. They are content to follow, and many are too lazy to do the minimal research required to have an informed opinion. Their reliance on government or media sources for information makes them susceptible to manipulation. It’s simply easier to be a sheeple.

As a student of the preparedness lifestyle, I cringe at the media’s portrayal of preppers. Initially, the brunt of the ridicule was directed at survivalists. But with the success of National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers, the concept of being a prepper hit the mainstream. Now Preppers are the target of the media’s derision. I have my opinion as to why that is the case, and it has its basis in politics. It is my opinion that the media is largely left-leaning and, as a result, does not embrace the self-sufficient lifestyle that is prepping. So, if you can’t join them, beat them down–repeatedly. As a recent example, consider the media’s dismantling of the Tea Party movement. I see similar attacks on preppers.

But, what if the Preppers are right?

Preparation, not panic, is the best way to address the threat of an EMP attack.
