Other than a full-blown nuclear war, a widespread EMP (electromagnetic pulse) is probably the scariest thing that could happen. The whole world would be plunged into darkness, followed by months–if not years–of anarchy. Your best chance of surviving such an event is to hole in a shelter or bug out retreat that you can defend.
If you do this, you’ll want to have plenty of Faraday cages filled with electronic devices. The cages will keep your devices safe from the EMP. The only problem is, if you can’t generate power, pretty soon all your batteries will be dead, making your Faraday cages useless. Unless, of course, you build a Faraday cage large enough to hold a power generator.
That is the subject of this article by Thomas Mitchell for AskAPrepper.com. He writes, “EMPs are potentially one of the most destructive weapons that could be used against today’s society. Just a single nuclear bomb detonated at high altitude over a major city could wipe out all electronics for potentially thousands of miles around.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
