A federal EMP commission report warns that even the smallest EMP attack on our grid system would down it for about a year, if not longer. A year-long blackout would certainly be coupled with a massive death toll that would devastate entire populations.

The so-called EMP Commission report said that this threat is very real, jeopardizes “modern civilization,” and would set back living conditions to those last seen in the 1800s. As a result of the chaos, millions would likely die, according to the report titled “Assessing the Threat from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP),” from the recently re-established Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack.

“The United States — and modern civilization more generally — faces a present and continuing existential threat from naturally occurring and man-made electromagnetic pulse assault and related attacks on military and critical national infrastructures. A nationwide blackout of the electric power grid and grid-dependent critical infrastructures — communications, transportation, sanitation, food and water supply — could plausibly last a year or longer. Many of the systems designed to provide renewable, stand-alone power in case of an emergency, such as generators, uninterruptible power supplies, and renewable energy grid components, are also vulnerable to EMP attack,” said the 27-page report.

“A long-term outage owing to EMP could disable most critical supply chains, leaving the U.S. population living in conditions similar to centuries past, prior to the advent of electric power,” said the July 2017 report provided Secrets.

“In the 1800s, the U.S. population was less than 60 million, and those people had many skills and assets necessary for survival without today’s infrastructure. An extended blackout today could result in the death of a large fraction of the American people through the effects of societal collapse, disease, and starvation,” added the executive summary.

Three reports on the issue of an EMP attack have been declassified by the Pentagon and seven more are awaiting clearance. Among those declassified documents, was a report from Peter Vincent Pry, who served on a prior EMP Commission and is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, spelling out the human toll of an EMP attack on the electric grid. He also advises the current commission.

    There is seldom a more accurate appraisal of the General population than the one above. One hundred years ago people had ‘many skills’ on their side and the potential for survival in adverse conditions was much greater than today. Consider this. The average day in the life of an American was simply one of survival in the way of providing food, water and cover. Today, it’s one of ‘do duh’ as in do duh welfare check come yet??? When the government assistance stops, so will life for much of the population.

    The folks that have prepared ‘to some degree’ will make it for a while. Those who wait at the gate for a hand-out will be the waste product that someone else will have to dispose of. Starvation, disease and roving gangs will make daily life unbearable for most people.

    Many, even though they refuse to admit it, will die in FEMA camps or become the slave labor for the top 1% and like it or not…so will their children. Yuh damn well better make peace with whomever you believe in. Time is of the essence on this one.
