IF SHTF:::::Half of all Americans Won’t Survive 2 Weeks without Electricity - WILL YOU?
A new study conducted by World Net Daily, looked into the overall preparedness level of the American public; what they found is pretty troubling. Almost 50% of the people who were polled said they would not be able to survive for more than 2 weeks without the electricity. An astonishing 75% of them said they would be dead within two months.

What’s most shocking about the survey, is the fact that most Americans realize how unprepared they are, but are still not willing to take the steps they need to take to ensure their survival. If you know you would be dead in a matter of weeks, doesn’t it make sense to do something to safeguard yourself form that threat?

I read a study awhile back that asked people, if they knew definitively that french fries caused terminal cancer, would they stop eating them? 75% of them would not stop eating them.

Do people have a death wish? Are they just stupid or ignorant? Living in denial? What?

Those in the city would be hard pressed to make it two months, those in rural areas would have a higher survival rate at two months.

It also depends on timing. Dead of winter and that 50% will likely rise 10%, in spring it would be closer to 25% fatalities (elderly, violence, lack of medications etc).

Personally, I'd make it about 6 hours..........

It's far worse. I hope people read the original survey at WND.com
[link to www.wnd.com]

They knew that they weren't preparing AND over half were willing to kill in order to protect their own!

I urge any serious person (prepper or otherwise) to read the whole article and take a good long reflective minute in the mirror and ponder what you need to do to prepare. It's disturbing that people know that they're aren't prepared and yet willing to kill.

Without electricity around 90% or more of people will be dead within a year.

I believe this report.

I will be fine.

I have prepared and also prepped my mind.

A lot of it is mind set.

A lot of it for people that are sick will involve meds
that must be refrigerated or dialysis or other electrically
driven devices......including pace makers that rely on batteries.

It is going to be very hard.

and this is the very reason you need more ammo.

I went 2 weeks without power during Sandy.

Piece of cake for me, personally

however,

I'm surrounded by people who will NOT be able to survive longer than that without going berserk

so left to my own devices, I can survive

but unless I can move away to a rural area, I may not escape the crazies

Unfortunately OP, the topic has been beaten to death in the last13 years I've been here.

The Y2K 'nonevent' convinced even some peppers, that it's NOT going to happen, and the other 90% NEVER want to lift a finger/exert themselves, UNLESS it's for THEIR PLEASURE !

Then, government promises, even WITHOUT follow up as Katrina and Sandy showed, didn't wake the " It can't happen here" crowd of idiots, where porn comes first on their list of 'things to do'.

Also, there is the false belief they can do it all in a few days/overnight ! I have been getting 'ready' for 27 YEARS, and I STILL realize there are important things I overlooked; put on my 'To Do List'.

Y'all are a bunch of morons if you believe this shit.
Humanity has done just fine without electricity before.
You grow food. You come together as a community.
You don't just fall into chaos and retarded fish frog fighting.
If you were a retarded fish frog then yes this would happen.
You aren't.
You are an intelligent being that can work together with others.
You are a pack animal, like a herd of sheep.
Your shepherd will not let you fall into panic like that.
Grow up, realize that you are BETTER than this.
Retards all believing zombie apocalypse, OMG buy ammo, yes, but buy ammo to shoot game if necessary and to protect property.

All will be well. Get in touch with your community.
If you are alone, you will not survive.
If you work together, you'll be fine.
HIVE MIND.
