The United States is still arguably the strongest nation of earth. However there is one thing that could get rid of 90% of the population without having to come anywhere near the country itself. That one thing is an EMP attack.
An EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) is a quick burst of energy that can completely destroy all of our nations electronics and can be triggered by setting of a nuclear device at high altitude (North Korea has the ability to do this right now).
A solar flare from the sun would accomplish the same thing.. A cyber attack or simple physical assault from a terrorist group could also wipe out our highly vulnerable grid.
If one of these events were to take place we would instantly be sent back to the stone age because all unprotected electronic devices would be fried, and the nations power grid would be down.
These are chilling realities. Judge Jeanine Pirro investigates just how susceptible the nations power grid really is, and the result if such an event were to take place.
If you are in a hurry watch the bottom video first, it’s less than 2 minutes long, but conveys the message quite well. Great reason to begin some kind of preparedness program.
JEANINE PIRRO: “Lights Out: The Danger to US Power Grid” – The EMP Threat
Judge Jeanine Pirro investigates the danger posed to Americans’ lives, property, and way of life if an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack, a solar flare, or a terrorist attack brings down the US power grid.
In this special program Jeanine Pirro interviews Frank Gaffney, former CIA Director James Woolsey, the Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Smith, former SEAL Christopher Heben, Andrea Boland, Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), former Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham and other experts on the threat, the consequences, and the need to secure the grid from attacks and shutdown.
