Who knows what to believe? When i was a child in the 1970's the school teachers would tell us that an "Ice Age" was coming. Nothing like having little children scared that they will freeze to death. I didn't believe that then, now they are teaching Global warming...C'mon man!Climates change, but climate change is a total hoax. They want to use it to control us. That will be four carbon credits please. I try to keep it to myself, but a kindred spirit what pays attention is hard to not acknowledge.
I'm old enough to remember the Great Northeast Blackout of 1965. Mom and I were eating dinner at the local Friendlys after my weekly piano lesson when the lights went out. Everyone in the restaurant thought it was a local outage until the manager came out of the kitchen where the staff was listening to a big portable radio and announced that it was a major blackout affecting the entire Northeast and two Canadian provinces; that the power company had no idea what had happened; and no idea how long it would be before we got power back. He then offered everyone in the restaurant all the ice cream they could eat, for free, because it was going to melt anyway and they might as well get some good out of it.What are the chances of a EMP?
There is much more chance of a terrorists to take out substations & totally shut down all electricity in the us.
They say it would take as little as 9 substations knocked out to totally shut the US down.
As I recall that happened during one of Davis Besse Nuclear Power Station's prolonged shutdowns. The grid was already strained. Oddly, Ohio Edison claimed they were getting power all the way from Detroit to compensate for that.Remember that outage in Ohio, Michigan, Canada about a dozen years back? Didn’t take much to kill power for a few days to a big swath of customers.
