Goodbye, lineage.

No food, no water, no transport and no land to produce on.

I thought the first things the (new US Admin. doing) is to try to bring the world together, but by accidents or mistake makes the enemy of Russians first (again), Then the Iranian and next, NK…. and now the China. I am not talking about the other countries that really are acts as US allies but wish to bring it down by its nose.

All of them have one thing in common; they all are victims of stupid (stuxnet) attack. Do you all think that they can’t use it as a counter attack..? All to do is to change its algorithm and put it back where it belong, then wait for the right time. EMP mystery is solved..

As owner of the book “One Second After” and having been a multiple certified and licensed electronics technician for over 47 years, with relatives having worked in the electrical and national grid systems, there is some information on EMP that is exaggerated.

The electrical companies have been hardening the 69kV, 115kV and 230kV 3-phase transmission systems for decades. I don’t know about the 500kv or higher systems. The substations have been hardened for decades and that effort continues as technologies advance.

The problem is local wiring that serves as electromagnetic pickup “antennas”. The longer the unshielded wiring the greater the gain (voltage). Shielding does work. Solid shields vice mesh or braided shield are nearly perfect. Your car or truck electronics will survive. Your phone and small unconnected electronics will very more than likely be fine. Unshielded DC wiring between an A/C converter brick and an electronic device (USB, audio, HDMI, etc.) will be a problem. It’s devices plugged into your street feed if you don’t have a house-wide surge system installed at your service panel that are most susceptible. Even with that the home wiring makes a great antenna.

It will have to be a truly spectacular device(s) designed to generate an EMP to be be effective. Those will be only the nuclear big boyz that can not only generate it but also must deliver correctly.

The real problem with the US electrical grid(s) is a philosophical one. Between the 1970s and 1990s, engineers treated redundancy built into a system as 'waste'. They removed redundancies wherever they could, in the name of enhanced "efficiency." You can see this in just-in-time inventory, and also in load-sharing networks, where redundancy is replaced with the ability to redistribute the load over the network.

So now we have a system composed of overburdened components, that will share the failure with all other members in the event of a crisis.

The 2003 US/Ontario blackout was caused by a tree falling on some power lines in Ohio, at the same moment a cat was electrocuted on a neighboring network. Those types of problems have been addressed; but hacking the electrical controls for those grids could generate cascading crises on larger scale. And with computers, you no longer need an actually falling tree or frying cat to start the crisis off. you can push a button in an Internet cafe in Serbia...

One human sized faraday cage please! Though, not sure if it protects from a CME?
