About this Book:
Nuclear EMP Threats - What Next?

Abstract

This is a treatise on Wake-up America to a "Not-if, but when" high-altitude, nuclear, Electromagnetic Pulse event, called EMP. The book objective is to convert USA from an apathetic state to full awareness; then to planning protection, and how to harden buildings, homes, and solar energy infrastructure with multiple solutions. Results: protect USA while enjoying a significant increase in annual growth rate and many new jobs via an enhanced Employment Multiplier, an economic term.

Some Details

This handbook explains how to avoid the EMP impact in William Forstchen's New York Times bestseller, "One Second After". The solution technologies may be shrouded mostly in certain government and Dept. of Defense military EMP activities. Yet, essentially nothing is protecting the civil sector of commercial, industrial, residential and electric utilities from a burnout of electronics and electrical blackout.

Note: a single HEMP event results in few operable vehicles; airplanes lose control; no functional subways; elevators stuck in buildings; no communication; no Internet; no radio; no TV. With support from 100 drawings, sketches, diagrams, spreadsheets, tables, charts and photos, the author, explains mostly in layman's terms different solution options and a measure of cost, expectations and ROI.

Parenthetically, the potential damage from a single HEMP burst to a civilization can make Pearl Harbor and 9/11 look like a cake walk. However, contrast this to a nuclear HEMP damage from 30 mile altitude in which electrical and electronic burnout result in about 500 miles, equal to 3,000 times the EMP ground-area destruction. With HEMP, people are not killed and infrastructure is still standing, but without electrical and electronics services.

There exists today limited products and services that can protect both small and big buildings from the impact of a HEMP incident. HEMP protected solar-PV rooftops will provide electricity together with batteries and generators that will permit indefinite survival - a period in time until electric grid damage can eventually be repaired.

While not emphasized, the handbook also addresses the more limited impact of Solar Flares.

Thus, in summary, "Nuclear EMP Threat - What Next?" provides the sequel to Forstchen's 2,000,000 "One Second Later", New York Times bestseller, by providing the fix options to ensure it doesn't happen. This titillates the fancy of the many readers who are worried that a viable protection really exists. 1st Edition
