I'm sorry I don't post often and I'm bad with quoting, but anyway we have to remember that in the scenario we are talking about, the large distribution transformers would be damaged. Those take between 2 and 5 years for delivery from overseas. The first thing needed is juice from the plants. Then transformers to make it usable

OK, now who and when did someone say on this post Obama was doing nothing? He is destroying the health care industry as you post. He is reoving our liberties one by one, day by day. He is doing plenty!

The post states the "Federal Government" is doing nothing. Please read before you post.

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

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.

As far as rural America goes, I believe it would be easier to get along there than in a city. But, it would take far longer to get those areas back online. Of course that is purely my educated guess.

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.

Any generator is only good as long as you have fuel for it -in a total EMP - there may not be any more fuel arriving to your area

Otherwise - you would need to keep the entire generator and ALL related house circuits protected which is VERY hard to accomplish.

 Quoting: sandpiper

A generator should have heavy wiring and 'work' after the EMP. The problem is the motor turning it and it's electronics. There are old motor/generator that don't have electronics.

btw sandpiper, What are you going to do with the generator electric after the EMP?
You have no food.
Primitive predators/radioactive cannibals roaming around.
No one else has communication or electric.
AC611 is busy with all the govt agencies and will likely never finish the people repairs.
You have bigger problems than electric.

Actually, very little military equipment is "hardened" against EMP. This doesn't seem to be a priority for the current regime. I suspect they made sure that equipment to support their worthless asses is ready, and the rest of us are fucked. Don't count on the government to help you after any emergency, you could end up on a bridge without food or water. Or, maybe in the superbowl stadium with all the murderers and rapists.

Nuclear plants are a whole different world. We all probably share the same amount of knowledge about them. I've seen that show where they say they begin auto shut down when they experience failure. Who knows if it's true. I know I wouldn't want to be anywhere near or downwind of one.

AC611,
Yeah they'd SCRAM and shutdown fine with battery power, like Fuku. Long term without circulating pumps, they wouldn't make it.

Primitive predatory behavior.
No food.
Exploding deserted nuke plants.

That means we have to add radioactive cannibals to this doom eventually. :0

In my mind, our X factor is our offshore nuclear vessels. I would imagine some of them would serve as our new temporary power plants. Thinking along those lines, I think we could get limited power up relatively quickly. With a little luck there would at least be a few hundred surviving transformers. In that case it may be possible to keep mass outages under a few months.

Re: Are you prepared for a EMP? How would you survive?
Help! I have not read all the replies but can someone tell me what good a generator will do us if all electrics are fried? Did I miss something. I have one big solar panel, how do I protect it? Help please. If EMP fries everything, what good is a generator?
 Quoting: sandpiper

A generator should have heavy wiring and 'work' after the EMP. The problem is the motor turning it and it's electronics. There are old motor/generator that don't have electronics.

btw sandpiper, What are you going to do with the generator electric after the EMP?
You have no food.
Primitive predators/radioactive cannibals roaming around.
No one else has communication or electric.
AC611 is busy with all the govt agencies and will likely never finish the people repairs.
You have bigger problems than electric.
 Quoting: uscrusader1


I've always wondered if I could take a generator apart and turn the axle with a running stream or windmill. I'm sure a handy guy could rig something powered by Mother Nature.

!!!!!!!!!!!
Pretty good 'out of the box' thinking there AC611 :)
Govt agencies, municipalities would hog it all so none left for the common man.
But then we'd be to busy defending against radioactive cannibals to worry too much about it. And you'd need a defense rifle team every time you went out on a 'Post EMP' repair trip. Like Liam Neeson in 'The Grey"

It takes 'some' HP but with leverage it can be done. Scale down the genny and need less HP(like a car alt) in a stream.

Like the Sheriff of Nottingham of the Robin Hood stories. Traveled though the town for his daily tax collection.
Seemed to collect $ OK before electricity. :)

Re: Are you prepared for a EMP? How would you survive?
I'm well located. We'd band together up here. Martial law would be declared and the seat of government would be Fairchild AFB nearby. I've heard some talk that the resort here in town has hardened electrical backup systems. I'm certain that generators in the silver mines would survive the EMP.

98% white and 250 miles from the nearest population center. That takes away a lot of worries.

It will happen. It's prophecy.
