Overview of the EMP Threat
The greatest threat of our Era is "Not If, but When" the inevitable aspects of a rogue nation or terrorist EMP (electromagnetic pulse) event occurs. This will not only destroy the electric power grid, putting us all back in the Dark Ages without their ways and means of life. Almost immediately, people will lose their jobs, their equity, no water, no sewer, disabled vehicle mobility and their entire lifestyles.
Present legislation, such as HR-3410 (Critical Infrastructure Protection Act (CIPA)), will attempt to protect substation transformers to permit the electricity to continue. The problem is this will not work because the SCADA and microprocessors will burn out at the substation and the over 100,000,000 residential, commercial and industrial consumer final step-down transformers will malfunction as well.
