By: Arthur Bradley, PhD.
What would happen if
terrorists detonated a nuclear device high above the United States? What about
if the Sun emitted a large coronal mass ejection that resulted in a damaging
geomagnetic storm? In either case, electrical power could be lost for months. Shortages
would quickly ensue, food, water, and fuel would disappear within days.
Widespread panic and suffering would be unavoidable. Are you prepared for these
This book will help
you to prepare for two end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it (TEOTWAWKI) events: the
EMP attack and the solar storm. Each threat is carefully studied with analyses
of its likelihood and potential impacts on our nation’s critical
infrastructures. Practical preparations are outlined, including steps to meet
the fourteen basic needs in the absence of modern utilities, and the use of
Faraday cages and uninterruptible power supplies to protect personal
electronics. Several techniques for constructing ad-hoc Faraday cages are
presented. The shielding effectiveness of homemade Faraday cages is measured
and compared, including metal garbage cans, foil-wrapped boxes, fire safes,
anti-static bags, ammo cans, microwave ovens, and full-sized protective rooms.
The Expanded Edition
includes 25 additional pages with discussions of how to establish your own
micro-infrastructures, such as food, water, and electricity. Also, the
susceptibility and protection of personal automobiles is presented.
