has been conducting (quietly) ongoing studies (since reagan) on what
are the most likely threats to the continued cohesive existence of of
the United States and American civilization. the most likely threats
currently are civil war (due to the current political, and therefore
economic situation...think white house), and coordinated medusa attack,
and a hyper CME. now the likelihood of civil war will be dependent
of whether necessary change in the executive branch and senate occur
come november...currently this is listed as the highest likelihood, at
about 1:3. the coordinated medusa attack is currently considered
the least likely due to the fact that it would require very high-yield
devices, with their yields modulated for maximum WL/band-specific
release, and the means to execute at necessary altitude (LoS) for
maximum effect. it has been assessed that it would take TWELVE of them
set off at 50k ft alt, with necessary tech modulated yield to
effectively render 85-90% all e-tech unserviceable. because of the
sheer logistics involved, and the nature of the necessities, the
likelihood has been assessed at less than 3:19...which is far more
likely w/i the next 20-30yrs than say, a mega volcano or unlimited TN
exchange. the other, almost seemingly inevitable likelihood is a
hyper CME. the sort of level 5 event that happened in 1859 would render
approximately 95% of all unprotected e-tech entirely unservicible w/i
hours (of exposure) on the summer hemisphere (and equatorial regions)
and w/i about a day on the winter hemisphere (slower towards the winter
pole...but high near the pole.) remember, the 1859 event is only
listed as a 5 out of 10. it was the convergence of only TWO solar
activity cycles. now, come midsummer 2026 there THREE solar cycles
will converge...along with the earth coming into a perihelion, and the
north pole being far nearer on its axial angle to the sun. this will
likely result in a 7 or 8 out of 10. the US government is taking
this possibility VERY seriously as it has been retrofitting facilities
for just such an event, and all new tech must be designed to be EM
and of note, we, as a nation and
society/civilization are so tech-dependent, that if all e-tech was
rendered useless in a flash, the global economy would crash instantly,
and open civil war would ensure shortly thereafter. if you live in an urban center, go to bed on this one...
how long after the hoodnicks and hoodlums realized that the law no
longer could communicate or coordinate, would they not begin their
rampage of pillaging, looting, and burning? hours? ...minutes???
your window of escape in places like NYC, LA, DC, chicago, detroit is
less than maybe 2 hours...and every car on the road not protected, not
retrofitted will be dead and burned out exactly where it stood...meaning
main roads, highways, freeways, etc will be impassible by anything more
than a motorcycle. better have all your bug-out stash and vehicle well
outside. your survival spot and supplies stores better be HUNDREDS of
miles away as well. also realize, all cash not immediately in hand will be lost...but so will all debts!
the fiat currency in hand will become rapidly devalued to the point of
worthlessness within the first week...faster in cities, slower in the
countryside. all things will be barter goods for goods w/i a month. so, what you can get ahead of time is what you'll have, and money spent will serve you (at this point) better than money saved. just some thoughts from someone who has studied well, and understands even better. God bless and God speed.
D.>>> what is hyper CME?
you gotta plan not for 30 days, or 90 days...or even 1-2 years.
if/when it hits, you'd better have planned for TWENTY OR MORE YEARS! a
whole generation will be born and grow up with the conditions of
survival and never know the world before.
