Have you ever wondered what the real effects of an EMP would be? You’re likely already familiar with its effects on electrical components (power grid failure and so on), but what effect does an it actually have on people? Robert Brenner explains below. Check it out, and be sure to check out the past articles in his EMP series here and here.
An Inquiry Into The Effects of Electromagnetic Pulse On Us Earth’s Protective Canopy
(Based on the book Power Out! How to Prepare for and Survive a Grid Collapse)
Our universe is alive with energy. Invisible cosmic rays race across space from distant sources. Powerful explosions on the sun blast charged particles, streams of solar wind, and electromagnetic radiation out toward our tiny planet 92 million miles away. We’d be injured, if not killed, by the destructive energy if it weren’t for a magnetic field almost 12,000 miles that provides electromagnetic pulse protection like a protective canopy around our earth. This magnetic field deflects solar wind and cosmic rays so little of the destructive energy passes through to enter our ionosphere—a shell of electrons, charged atoms and molecules. The ionosphere exists primarily due to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The bands
