An EMP is a Knockout Punch Few people realize that entire continents can be shut offline without a single gunshot being fired. The population likely wouldn't see a single explosion. Nobody would lose their lives as a result of the initial shutdown. There's a chance that people wouldn't even realize the electrical grid went down until they tried to operate their cell phones. How could this be? An electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, is the result of a nuclear warhead exploding high above the Earth's surface. The burst of energy created by the explosion reacts with the Earth's magnetic field, ultimately rendering all electronics useless. You know what's scary? Nuclear warheads are more accessible … [Read more...] about EMP Shield: Why Every Prepper Should Have One

The annexation of the Crimean peninsula seems to have just been the beginning of what … [Read more...] about Russia’s Doomsday Machine: What You Need to Know
What Exactly is an EMP? An EMP is an electromagnetic pulse, or a short burst of magnetic energy. While the acronym "EMP" typically calls to mind images of disaster, lightning, which is largely benign, is actually a type of EMP. The two types of EMPs that fall into the "disastrous" category are Coronal Mass Injections (Solar Flares) and Nuclear EMPs deployed by a military or rogue actor. EMPs of these varieties would cause devastation including, but not limited to, the below examples: All electrically powered devices will shut down Fires may ignite as a result of electrical surges Planes may fall out of the sky Nuclear generators will not be able to cool, resulting in nuclear … [Read more...] about 5 Things to Do to Survive an EMP
