The EMP attack is the most terrifying of all scenarios because of its ability to affect so many people. The nuclear bomb is a powerful weapon of war but the loss of power to 300 million in a serious EMP that shuts down all three of America’s power grids is terrifying. The fear of being obliterated by the enemy pales in comparison to being eaten by your neighbor in desperation. I contend that the EMP is the most devastating force in our electronic world.
I love when an author looks at a disaster through day to day glasses and this one does just that. Many times we outfit our homes to the highest degree but do nothing for when we are away from home. This strange line of thinking is avoided in this article.
