While President Obama and the rest of the Democrats want to spend billions of taxpayer dollars and impose economy-crushing regulations over global warming junk science the electrical grid remains vulnerable. They try to scare us into thinking if we don’t go along with their plans the weather is going to get really bad. The Pirate’s Cove linked to a website that you can plug your address into to see what will happen if we do nothing over global warming. It showed our house completely under water, with just a little bit of the roof showing. We’re about 500 feet above sea level and hours from the ocean. I plugged in the address of the neighbors up the hill and their roof was just peaking out of the water, just like ours. It’s complete BS.
In the mean time, experts are warning that an electromagnetic pulse attack on our electrical grid would bring about nearly complete devastation. The attack itself wouldn’t, but the aftermath would. Imagine life with no power, no water or sewage system, no electronics. Even if you are a pretty self sufficient person, you’d have to fight off the looters.
Expert testimony before Congress on Thursday warned that an electromagnetic pulse attack on our power grid and electronic infrastructure could leave most Americans dead and the U.S. in another century.
That dire warning came from Peter Vincent Pry, a member of the Congressional EMP Commission and executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security.
He testified in front of the House Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection and Security Technologies that an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event could wipe out 90% of America’s population.
Today an electromagnetic pulse event would be devastating. It wouldn’t need a solar storm, just a solitary nuke detonated in the atmosphere above the American heartland. We would envy the horse-and-buggy era.
“Natural EMP from a geomagnetic superstorm, like the 1859 Carrington Event or 1921 Railroad Storm, and nuclear EMP attack from terrorists or rogue states, as practiced by North Korea during the nuclear crisis of 2013, are both existential threats that could kill 9-of-10 Americans through starvation, disease and societal collapse,” the Washington Free Beacon quoted Pry as saying.
All we hear from these Democrats is how we need to spend billions of dollars on infrastructure and green energy, but you don’t hear much about protecting the electrical grid that we all rely on.
