When the Lights go out

Timothy Birdnow

The North Koreans forced a U.S. military aircraft down by jamming the GPS signal.

This should give us pause; we have become so dependent on our high tech electronics that we simply cannot function without them. What will happen if the U.S. should experience an EMP? Surely our enemies understand our vulnerability, and they must understand they can bring our entire system down.

Remember, I warned against this years ago.

I recently read a novel by William Forschen about the horrors of life after EMP called One Second After; he predicts the population of the U.S. would fall to about 30 million, with starvation, war, pestillence, and inadequate shelter/heating and cooling killing millions in agonizing conditions. I would recommend everyone read it to understand how bad things will get when the lights go out.
