The Heritage Foundation in America warned of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that could wipe out almost all civilian and military infrastructures.
A massive EMP attack on the United States would produce almost unimaginable devastation. Communications would collapse, transportation would halt, and electrical power would simply be non-existent.
They claim that if a nuclear device is detonated high in the atmosphere above American mainland that it would destroy the country’s electrical grid “shutting down nearly all communications, transportation, and service systems. Overnight, daily life as Americans know it will be a thing of the past.”
Now the Heritage Foundation is calling upon Obama to listen before it is too late.
They warn that “Much of the world’s intellectual brain power (half of it is in the United States) would be lost as well. Earth would most likely recede into the “new” Dark Ages.”
A nuclear device detonated high in the atmosphere above the American mainland can easily disable the country’s electrical grid—shutting down nearly all communications, transportation, and service systems. Overnight, daily life as Americans know it will be a thing of the past. There are ways to prevent devastation from an EMP — and the U.S. must invest in them now before it is too late.
