Emp Attacks and Solar Storms
by Arthur T. Bradley, Ph.D.
Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms (Expanded Edition)
What would happen if terrorists detonated a nuclear device high above the United States? What about if the Sun emitted a large coronal mass ejection that resulted in a damaging geomagnetic storm? In either case, electrical power could be lost for months. Shortages would quickly ensue—food, water, and fuel would disappear within days. Widespread panic and suffering would be unavoidable. Are you prepared for these large-scale disasters?
This book will help you to prepare for two end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it (TEOTWAWKI) events: the EMP attack and the solar storm. Each threat is carefully studied with analyses of its likelihood and potential impacts on our nation’s critical infrastructures. Practical preparations are outlined, including steps to meet the fourteen basic needs in the absence of modern utilities, and the use of Faraday cages and uninterruptible power supplies to protect personal electronics. Several techniques for constructing ad-hoc Faraday cages are presented. The shielding effectiveness of homemade Faraday cages is measured and compared, including metal garbage cans, foil-wrapped boxes, fire safes, anti-static bags, ammo cans, microwave ovens, and full-sized protective rooms.
The Expanded Edition includes 25 additional pages with discussions of how to establish your own micro-infrastructures, such as food, water, and electricity. Also, the susceptibility and protection of personal automobiles is presented.

About the Author:
"Arguably the best book currently written on the subject of electromagnetic pulse and solar storm preparedness."--Maggie Ledbetter, fellow prepper and author of Living Simple.
"Presents useful data showing what works and, more importantly, what doesn't when constructing a Faraday cage . . . a guide filled with practical advice."--Boris V., Professor Emeritus, Electromagnetics Research.
"Does a great job of distinguishing the differences between the preparations needed for solar storms and EMP strikes."--Shane Connor, Ki4U
"Read this book and you'll learn some simple, inexpensive, and effective methods to protect critical equipment from an EMP pulse or a solar storm." -- Andrew Baze, author of The Road Home and the Personal Emergency Communications.
