Russia Is Developing New Super Weapons–Are We Prepared?
In the age of technology, we are more and more dependent on electricity and technology for our daily needs. So what would happen if our power grids went down for a few weeks, months, or even years?
An electromagnetic pulse (or EMP) attack could cause our power grids to all go down at the same time. All it would take is the detonation of one nuclear warhead at high altitude. According to the EMP Commission, it would be relatively inexpensive to protect our critical infrastructures against EMP; yet it still hasn’t been done.
