An Electromagnetic Pulse Attack Could Mean No Power, Water, Food, Electricity, Cell Service and More. So Could a Cyber Attack.

(Yes, it could, and it’s not a matter of if but when it will happen.)

Imagine what would happen if suddenly there were no cell phone service, no electrical power, no water and no food. But that’s not all. Imagine if there were no functioning banks and financial institutions, automobiles, trucks, and computers stopped working, railroads were unable to roll and airplanes were unable to fly, hospitals were unable to function and grocery store shelves went unfilled. According to Robin Burk, Ph.D., MBA, such a scenario is possible should portions of America’s computer networks, electric grid etc. be hit by a short burst of electromagnetic energy from the type of nuclear weapon North Korea has already tested – or by crippling cyber-attacks. It is only prudent to start planning now for potential attacks that could badly disrupt the systems we rely on.

    Best time to launch one is either Thanksgiving or Christmas time. In the US we travel as part of the observance of these holidays to family. Not being able to get home and being somewhere unfamiliar with regards to travel would make this disastrous.

    I pray this never happens in my lifetime. I don’t travel at holidays.

    If it were me making the decision I would go with winter. Fewer people will be prepared to stay warm enough long term to avoid hypothermia. More people can deal with hot weather better than cold.

    Related question: Supposing you were the leader of a hostile country and planning to launch an EMP attack on the US. What would you consider the season that would inflict the greatest amount of devestation on our nation? My guess would be either the hottest part of summer or the coldest part of winter. Thoughts?
