    This is true, our grid is old and not ready for EMP.
    It will cost hundreds of billions and provide work if the politicians will stop bickering and actually work for the country.
    .
    An electromagnetic pulse (EMP), also sometimes called a transient electromagnetic disturbance, is a short burst of electromagnetic energy. Such a pulse may occur in the form of a radiated, electric or magnetic field or conducted electrical current depending on the source, and may be natural or man-made.

    ^digital more suseptible than analogue. Where were the “energy” companies with updating their equipment over the decades they were being subsidized by the government? Oh, right, like subsidized (freight) railroads that were becoming oil companies from than mineral estate they got, from the government, free, they were spending nada on upgrading on anything that didn’t pay for itself in like, well, 26 minutes of sales.

    They’re natural EMPs from the sun and there are human made bombs designed to give a powerful EMP.

    Climate change is real. Man caused climate change is a lie.

    That “man-made pulse,” is called a nuclear space blast by a foreign power, that could shut down the national grid.
    I hope it happens in daylight, so we can see.

    EMP? Remember that power outage in 2005 or so? When 1/4 of the USA lost power due to a cascade reaction originating at Niagara falls? You don’t need an EMP to bring the U.S. grid down. A spanner will do…

    It doesn’t even need an EMP to disable it.
    Remember back in 2005, a surge disabled the entire northeastern seaboards electricity.
    Turns out the Circuit Breakers hadn’t been checked in years and had welded themselves in the on position.
