Who needs a EMP leave it to the Gas and Electric spuliers to tax and costus out of paying the bills.

The price of fuel in uk is astranomical so is gas and electric so you can keep your emp.

I was going to have my soon-to-be 9 year old do this as a project...it's something that would definitely be good to keep on hand: a solar oven. This is a simple one, there are other ones out there...

Re: Are you prepared for a EMP? How would you survive?
Humans have been at our current evolutionary level for at least 50,000 years.

Up to just 100 years ago, the norm was a family-run no-utilities self-sufficient homestead that got everything it needed locally.

Have we really slid so far?

I'm a well urbanized animal. If I can ride out the initial die-offs or round-ups or whatever, and assuming whatever gets everyone else doesn't get me too, I can easily live on the junk and remains of a city. Hell, there must be thousands of solar garden lanterns stuck in lawns within a 5 minute walk of me. One car battery and an AC converter, I have power back. Hell, three alternators and a source of running water, say dropping a water wheel in the storm sewer, I have power again.

Solar panel + 12v pump + tubes + bucket = self-powered hydroponic bed. Dig a hole in the ground, line with hay or dead grass or old insulation or anything at all, place sheet of glass on top, greenhouse.

If our relatives 2 or 3 generations back had our amount of useful crap kicking around and going to waste (and knew how to use it), they would have used it to supplement their already self-sufficient homesteads and would practically be living in utopia.

Hell, if I had the free time and ability to scavenge scrap crap that nobody will care about post-doom, I'll be fine.

If I share this knowledge with others and help them do the same, I can participate in restarting civilization. That my simian life should have such relevance in this age of pointlessness would be an honor.

Re: Are you prepared for a EMP? How would you survive?
Great thread! The American Blackout movie didn't even touch on any of this stuff, and if an EMP attack happened during the fall going into winter...or winter itself...can you imagine the casualties that would result just from not having heat alone?

I thought most vehicles would not be able to operate, so just remember, those that have a bugout location wouldn't be able to get to it unless by foot!

I have not read the book, but my husband has it upstairs so guess I should some time....One Second After.

On the one hand, you're right...but I don't know if I could wish for it. Either way it would be bad...even in summer, can you imagine the garbage build up in the cites in particular? The DISEASE that would be festering? The STENCH since food (and anything else) would rot faster?!

When I took a ghost tour in Gettysburg a few weeks ago, they talked about how after the battle in July, there were so many dead they were just piled up. In addition to that, there was excrement in the streets from the soldiers, rotten horses, mules...body parts. The tour guide said said the stench was so bad it could be smelled 2 hours away in Philadelphia if the wind was right.

Suggest keeping LUGOLS IODINE on hand.

The iodine helps your body eliminate toxins stored in fat, especially bromine which may cause detox symptoms such as pimples and headaches.

Other detox symptoms may be fatigue, muscle aches, fever, diarrhea, and brain fog, and skin rashes.

Lugol's has been used to treat gout caused by high uric acid in the blood. The uric acid is deposited on the articular cartilage of joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues causing excruciating pain.

Lugols can be used topically on the skin for infection and sepsis. It can help open up blocked arteries, disinfect water, and cure bladder infections.

It has been shown to reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts, diminish unsightly keloids, loosen phlegm, and reduce or eliminate Peyronie’s Disease and Dupuytron’s contracture.

The benefits of iodine in the body are far reaching. Oddly enough, it is the least understood of all the essential trace elements.

This is the safest of all the essential trace elements which can be administered in large amounts when in an inorganic nonradioactive form.

Iodine is stored throughout your entire body - the skin, teeth, nails, all the organs, and bones.

When you have the correct amount of iodine in your body, you are able to:

•Maintain your energy level all day
•Maintain your weight
•Live without aches and pains
•Maintain a cheerful and uplifted attitude
•Have a clear memory
•Able to tolerate cold
•Have normal bowel movements;
•Have full and shiny hair; and
•Obtain restful night at sleep
•Have normal skin and supple fingernails

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Well, it's obvious life as we know it would cease to exist. It would be like a jump back to the 19th century, so inmediate adaptation should be key to survival.
1 John 1–3._ 1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.

I AM TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT SOLAR FLARES AND THE POSSIBILITY OF EMP... EITHER FROM THE SUN, NUCLEAR OR OTHER SOURCE.

There hasn't been a solar flare large enough since 1859. The largest one we've seen since data collection began has been an X45, the Halloween Storms of 2003, where Sunspot 488 and 486, both black and beautiful!!... kept punching out X flares for 2 weeks. Haven't seen anything since. Whats happened over the past week is NOTHING compared to 2003 and 2001. But life goes on. All the flares did was knock me out for a few hours.. I felt very tired around 5pm and was out like a light until 8pm.

As for nuclear or other source, an EMP, ain't nutting you can do about that. It is up to FATE/DESTINY. I don't see New Yorkers running for the hills or to buy a farm to learn how SELF-SUSTAINABILITY. Ain't gonna happen we are too dependent as a people on government and infrastructures.

The article referenced here is total b.s.

The was no "near miss" that I know about in May 2013 and the photo of the flare is ridiculous... it is an M flare at best, not even an X.

 Quoting: Laura Bow

I read ONE SECOND AFTER and I recommend it to everyone. There are things not in it - but it is as complete as any in print.

And - According to "Surviving the Financial Collapse" by Agguillere (sp)from Argentina.

When the FINANCIAL COLLAPSE happens - THE POWER GOES OUT!

It did in Argentina in 2001-2. Not enough unpaid employees to keep the grid up. So - get One Second After.

Forward by Newt Gingrich which I never said anything good about - but he brought this issue to Congress in the late 90's after reading the book and wanted the American people protected by stockpiling transformers and parts that would take two YEARS to get from China. And they probably have ALL the preps for the elites. They probably stocked all the extra parts for transformers for themselves and there were none left.

According to the book scenario - after 1 year without power 90% of the population will be dead. And it gives details, details, details, that are believable as to how and why this will happen. No water,sanitation,fuel,food,healthcare.

Read it aloud as we did and discuss some strategies that will be needed. Get new skills now.

There are numerous youtubes for:
Rocket mass heaters (super efficient space heating)
Rocket stoves (use 90% less fuel-heat n cook with a few sticks)
Bucket toilets (not stinky- RX book "Humanure")
Water storage
Growing food

Of primary concern are:
Water - Fuel - Food - Shelter - Community defense - Sanitation and general health - Medical is last because you won't last long enough to need it.

Re: Are you prepared for a EMP? How would you survive?
Well, I have some solar power, enough to run my freezer and lights, radio etc.

I can't find any reliable information on how EMPS's affect solar panels though. I know that there is a diode that I may need to replace, maybe. And it may fry the charge controller. A project on the board for me is to make a faraday cage for the controller and inverter. I have the stuff, I just need to do it.

In the reading I have done, not everything will be fried. . I've read that some areas, depending on their cover, will be shaded. Think of a car under a carport.

I'm looking to build a home at some point. One room will be shielded in aluminum screening, then sheetrocked. This room will house all solar components and the freezer, and serve as storage for other electronics.

What about the over 100 nuclear plants in the US and the buildings housing their spent fuel rod pools?? What would happen to these facilities after an EMP??
If you live within (50 miles?) of one of these, shouldn't you be researching this topic if you're preparing?
Why do few prepping articles, blogs, etc. never mention this at all?? I would really like to know what the threat is here and if there is a realistic way to prepare if meltdown is a real threat.
I have asked this question before and can't get an answer.

The iodine helps your body eliminate toxins stored in fat, especially bromine which may cause detox symptoms such as pimples and headaches.

Other detox symptoms may be fatigue, muscle aches, fever, diarrhea, and brain fog, and skin rashes.

Lugol's has been used to treat gout caused by high uric acid in the blood. The uric acid is deposited on the articular cartilage of joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues causing excruciating pain.

Lugols can be used topically on the skin for infection and sepsis. It can help open up blocked arteries, disinfect water, and cure bladder infections.

It has been shown to reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts, diminish unsightly keloids, loosen phlegm, and reduce or eliminate Peyronie’s Disease and Dupuytron’s contracture.

The benefits of iodine in the body are far reaching. Oddly enough, it is the least understood of all the essential trace elements.

This is the safest of all the essential trace elements which can be administered in large amounts when in an inorganic nonradioactive form.

Iodine is stored throughout your entire body - the skin, teeth, nails, all the organs, and bones.

When you have the correct amount of iodine in your body, you are able to:

•Maintain your energy level all day
•Maintain your weight
•Live without aches and pains
•Maintain a cheerful and uplifted attitude
•Have a clear memory
•Able to tolerate cold
•Have normal bowel movements;
•Have full and shiny hair; and
•Obtain restful night at sleep
•Have normal skin and supple fingernails

Lugols is actually one of my storage items, among some other "alternative" health items, like 23ppm silver gel. I can personally attest to the power of silver. IT healed a severe infection on my arm a few years ago when antibiotics were failing.

Re: Are you prepared for a EMP? How would you survive?
In the Carrington event there were arcs off of the telegraph wires. There was very minimal electrical wiring run at that time in 1859.

Why does no one use their logic with that one fact? If a telegraph wire arced? Could everything that has wires or exposed wires arc?

How would anyone survive the initial visible electricity everywhere?

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but has anyone done any thinking on that?

Last year I believe there were telephone poles arcing in TX. Imagine that everywhere. Fires. Burn the earth.

Sorry. Please think. Anyone know electrical well enough to explain whether or not much wiring would arc?
