Congresswoman: “100% Chance of a Severe Geo-Magnetic Event Capable of Crippling Our Electric Grid”

With the sun’s solar cycle in its peak stage this year and militaries around the world rapidly developing super electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) weapons, the threat of a catastrophic event that disables the U.S. power grid has never been greater.

In 2003 a solar flare emitted by the sun was the most powerful in recorded observational history, measuring in at levels so high that had it hit earth it would have likely disabled everything from the internet and mobile phones, to water utility plants and the whole of the U.S. electricity infrastructure. And, earlier this year in another near-miss, experts claimed the world escaped another large-scale EMP catastrophe.
While an outlier, the real possibility of an EMP event – be it natural or man made – is more probable than most people think:
The fall-out from a grid-down scenario would be absolutely devastating, as noted by a spokesman for the Center for Security Policy who recently responded to the potential for EMP capable weapons being deployed over the United States:

And experts forecast if such an attack were a success, it effectively could throw the U.S. back into an age of agriculture.
Within a year of that attack, nine out of 10 Americans would be dead, because we can’t support a population of the present size in urban centers and the like without electricity,” said Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy.

NASA has already begun implementing plans to deal with large scale power failure from a space weather anomaly, and NASA head Charles Bolden recently issued a video alert through the NASA Headquarters of Emergency Operations in which he claimed he had “been made aware of some things” that prompted him to urge NASA employees and their families to prepare for an event that could come like 9/11.
This was recently echoed by outgoing DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has said that a cyber attack or natural disaster on the U.S. power grid the likes of which we have never seen is imminent.
Following Napolitano’s comments it was revealed that the United States, Canada, Mexico and hundreds of private companies were planning a massivepower grid down drill to simulate what an EMP attack or solar flare might look like.

The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses.

    Hi Tap,

    For on-going weekly analysis of the up-coming false flag solar event without, the hysteria I listen to The “James McCanney Science Hour – At the Crossroads”
    http://www.jmccanneyscience.com/JamesMcCanneyScienceHour_September_05_2013.mp3

    According to Jim Mccanney & as far as my research goes, the sun is in an unusually inactive period considering it is meant to be at solar max. It’s as quiet as a mouse!

    can back this up on a daily basis.

    This fact is annoying NASA no end, as the plan seems to be to blame a solar event for a country wide power outage, triggering martial law, fema etc

    ANY solar event stories need to be double checked, as they are hyping this to the max.

    All the best
    gruff

    Yes and they are ramping up the fear with tv programmes such as last nights Blackout drama.
