#emp threat is preventable

5: co.fb/pol/energy/emp threat is preventable:
politico:
. EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack
can happen from a 150-yearly solar flare
not just nuclear terrorism
and it can send us to the stone age
by destroying our electrical grid's transformers
which take months or years to replace .
. there is a way to harden our grid
just as Canada has done,
but so far the usa is too cheap .
. we are due for a solar EMP attack,
and when that happens,
only the military will have electricity,
communications, and computing power .
 Mr.Bartlett spent 20 years as a congressman;
Now he's prepping for doomsday.
-- nice to see someone who should know
telling us what we should know:
emp is no joke .
