A history + preparedness solutions by Sol-Ark (Two Part Analysis)
Bobby Akart “Prepping For Tomorrow” Audio in player below!
On the next two week’s episodes of the Prepping for Tomorrow program, Author Bobby Akart discusses the number one concern of most preppers—a collapse of the power grid. Do you think this is only the stuff of fiction? Think again!
In the last twenty years alone, there have been more than a dozen major blackouts around the world affecting more than twenty million people per occurrence. For example, in 2003 a widespread power outage which was reportedly caused by a “software bug” occurred throughout the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. 55 million residents in the region and Canada were without power for a period of two weeks in some cases. Many believe that this was caused by a cyber attack and was a trial run for Chinese-backed patriot hackers.
Cyber Warfare is not the only potential cause of widespread grid down scenarios. In March 1989, a severe geomagnetic storm struck Earth and knocked out the Quebec electricity transmission system. A coronal mass ejection created the solar storm conditions which were too much for the Canadian grid to handle. The power failure lasted a day to several weeks in remote areas.
But the mother of all blackouts can be caused by an EMP. The world’s superpowers learned of the devastating impact a nuclear delivered Electromagnetic Pulse can have on the power grid in the 1940’s and 50’s, culminating with the well-documented Starfish Prime test of 1962. It was the nuclear detonation that shook the world. It brought the Soviet Union and the United States to the realization that an all-out nuclear war will kill us all. Today, many rogue nations possess this capability and the push of a button could thrust our nation into darkness.
I’ve explored these threats in depth in my best-selling Prepping for Tomorrow book series available on Amazon or here in the Prepper Broadcasting Book Store. The threat is real as history has shown us.
What about a long term grid down scenario? In part two of this series, we’ll have as our special guest Tom Brennan, Engineering Manager with Sol-Ark. Tom will weigh in on the threats we face and will provide several preparedness solutions. We’ll discuss in detail Off Grid Solar Systems, setting up a solar array as part of your preparedness plan, and the solutions offered by Sol-Ark. I suggest you visit the Sol-Ark website in advance of the December 15th program to familiarize yourself with their products. Here is a link!
