The Day Civilization Nearly Ended

DHS Not Prepared For A Power Grid Attack?

Four years ago this summer, the sun experienced a solar storm so severe that it nearly wiped out the entire power grid for not only the United States but the entire world.

In fact, the only thing that saved Earth was a stroke of fortune: The storm, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), missed our plant by a mere seven days. If it had hit Earth – as one did in 1859 – the entire power grid would have been taken down for months, and our day-to-day lives would have been plunged back into the 1800s. As NASA itself acknowledged, the storm would have disabled everything that plugs into a wall outlet.

A new government report says that America is overdue to be hit by a storm, and that’s the topic of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio. Our guest is Peter Vincent Pry, one of the nation’s foremost experts on threats to the power grid who tells us what we need to know about a massive solar storm that could hit Earth any day.

Pry tells us:

– How a solar storm that took out Quebec’s grid in 1989 was only a fraction as strong as the 2012 or 1859 storms.
— Why a solar storm would impact the power grid so dramatically that – unlike what happens during an ice storm – it would not be easily repaired.
— What life without electricity or gasoline would look like, and whether the U.S. government is prepared for such a civilization-changing event.

In this second of a two-part interview, Pry also shares with us details about how Americans can prepare for a downed-grid – and what they should do to pressure their state and local legislators to do the same.

  1. Good show and covers a threat that needs to be addressed. However, you are preaching to the wrong people. We see the threat and want to protect our nation therefore we listen to the program and agree to what is said. This administration however, the very ones who must be involved and help the states fix the problem, are only interested in social matters that divert attention away from the these very real and dangerous problems. Social matters like making it mandatory that schools allow confused boys into the girls restroom, etc.. I agree that we do not want the federal government involved in the management or actual work of fixing the grid but they do need to educate and offer suggestions as to the ways the grid can be fixed to the states so we don’t have 50 fixes that are not compatible with each other in an actual emergency.
