I came across this article Mythbusting: The “Carrington Event” and Solar Cycle Doom That article is full of innuendos, misdirection, half-truths and downright untruths. First off a CME is not the same as at EMP. Any author that interchanges the two had absolutely no credibility. The main difference between an EMP attack and a CME impact is what is effected. For EMP, both the power grid and electronics are damaged and destroyed. In a CME impact, mainly the power grid is affected, while electronics are untouched The three components of nuclear EMP, as defined by the IEC, they are called E1, E2 and E3: E1– The first component is a very fast, high voltage pulse. It is very brief, but very intense. It is much faster than lightning and common lightning and surge suppressors will not stop this pulse. It induces high voltages in wiring and cables, like power lines, phone lines, etc. This is the component that destroys computers and electronic equipment. E2 pulse is a lot like lightning and is easier to protect against, though if the protection circuit was destroyed or damaged by the E1 pulse, may still do more damage. The E3 pulse is a long…

Financial Collapse
Perpper / June 19, 2019

The worst possible thing would be a financial collapse, all of your debt, tax records, etc will still exist so will people wanting their money. It would be a very slow death for everyone While people may be debt-free i.e. no mortgage, no credit card bills, cars are paid off there still that thing called tax.  even if your stake currently does not have a property tax that does not mean that during financial collapse they won’t institute one if you consider that sales tax will be nonexistent. Now let’s take a look at the Great Depression, here are some facts; The stock market lost almost 90% of its value between 1929 and 1933. Around 11,000 banks failed during the Great Depression, leaving many with no savings. In 1929, unemployment was around 3%. In 1933, it was 25%, with 1 out of every 4 people out of work. The average family income dropped by 40% during the Great Depression. More than $1 billion in bank deposits were lost due to bank closings. The worst years of the Great Depression were 1932 and 1933. Around 300,000 companies went out of business. Hundreds of thousands of families could not pay their mortgages…

Coronal Mass Ejection (CME)
Perpper / June 8, 2019

Yes, coronal mass injections scare the crap out of me because it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when! The first coronal mass ejection that had any effect on us (as a modern nation) was Carrington Event 1859 Since that time had several glancing blows and near misses. On March 13, 1989 the entire province of Quebec, Canada suffered an electrical power blackout. Hundreds of blackouts occur in some part of North America every year. The Quebec Blackout was different, because this one was caused by a solar storm! NASA Report solar storms coronal mass ejection a near miss 2012 According to a report published in 2012 by physicist Pete Riley of Predictive Science Inc., the chance of Earth being hit by a Carrington-class storm between 2012 and 2022 is 12% The report One more thing is that  CME and a EMP are then the same. A CME can last for several days and a EMP ust a few seconds.

ARMCHAIR PREPPING. I have read some incredibly ridiculous things online such as. One guy posted that in the book Patriots a couple of members of the party hiked a couple thousand miles so you can to. Is this guy nuts or what? The author could’ve killed the people off a block from home. You need to be able to separate fantasy and fiction from reality! I also saw where somebody was asking where to start. The advice given to him was just get the Ranger handbook that’s all you need. What about canning, farming, animal care and the list goes on. All I’m saying is do your own thinking! [AMAZONPRODUCTS asin=”B003ODHO8G”]

Perpper / March 29, 2017

This is what I prep for: To thrive not just survive! The event that triggers EOTWAWKI could be one of many things an EMP, CME, financial collapse or even ebola. But whatever triggers it, is going to cause a long duration event, I believe 10 years or more. And that 10 years is going to be a very bumpy ride. If you don’t have it you won’t get it. Meaning that if you don’t have the canning lids, enough that will last 10 years, then you’re going to be very hungry. Yes there’s 1000’s of skill sets that would be beneficial to a group medic, ham operator, beekeeper the list goes on. But the single most important skill set will be the farmer! They can teach you to be a basic infantryman in 12 weeks. But you can’t learn to be a farmer in 12 weeks much less 12 months. And unless your name is Jack or Johnny you just can’t throw seeds on the ground and think they’re going to grow. You have to have the tools to plant them. You also have to tools to harvest. You also have to have the tools to process them, dehydrating, smoking…
