That makes no sense. Since EMP can travel through air, air also would allow EMP to travel through the "blast zone". Do you have any empirical evidence for this or are you just making it up as you go along?
A Faraday cage--which all this wiring SORT of creates, but not completely--is protection only up to a point. If the EMP is powerful enough to activate everything the cage is made of, it actually tends to focus the EMP inside the cage.
In other words, it doesn't allow as much propagation outside the cage.
Show me a link that supports what you are saying. I think you are making this up.
True. Private individuals severely overestimate the threat from nuclear weapons. The first is the constant overexxageration of the fallout caused by nuclear weapons. The second is a misunderstanding of the different types of nuclear weapons. A megaton-scale boosted weapon is far different from a Hiroshima-scale weapon built in the third world.
It depends on what kind of business you happen to be in. We would shift to a more wartime economy.
And as always, when America catches cold, the rest of the world gets pneumonia.
