Yet this counsel and the cost-effective solutions proposed to the looming EMP threat have been ignored. Continued inaction by Washington will make inevitable a natural or manmade EMP catastrophe that, as the Congressional EMP Commission warned, could kill up to 90 percent of the national population through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.

Brace yourself. You won’t hear about this from the mainstream media. And very few politicians dare to discuss these things openly.
But the reality is that we may be living in some of the most dangerous times in human history. Does that sound like some crazy exaggeration to you? Well, consider this: Recently, in The Wall Street Journal, former CIA Director James Woolsey warned that “the most significant threat to the U.S. in the world” is the threat of catastrophe caused by an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP. And that danger appears to loom larger every year. What is an electromagnetic pulse? It can be triggered by a massive solar storm, or set off by detonation of a nuclear device hundreds of miles above the earth. Even if no blast, shock or fallout reaches the ground, the cascading avalanche of infrastructure failures caused by an EMP can create a national catastrophe.
