It is just imprudent to have this vulnerability.

And speaking of infrastructure that is vulnerable, solar cells are going to be rendered inoperative with any EMP (man-made or natural) that induces more than a few hundred volts and there is no way to prevent it due to their very architecture.

“Everything in our modern society depends, directly or indirectly, upon electricity, including all the other critical infrastructures – communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water – that sustain modern civilization and the lives of 300 million Americans,” he said.

“If a great geomagnetic storm proves to be catastrophic, as all previous U.S. government studies have warned would be the case, the NERC could be responsible for contributing to an unprecedented national catastrophe,” Pry added.

Sounds like an excuse to have the Federal government takeover infrastructure “for our safety.”

I bet I know the answer. It goes something like this.

About a year after this new scheme is enacted, the news will come out that the EMP threat is much more amorphous than initially thought. The "threat interval" will be extended from 2014 until 2024, and estimates of its intensity will be cut back substantially. This news will be covered on the internet and, therefore, available to the small number of people who still are able to get internet service. The major national media will neglect to mention it.

If it will effectively destroy the federal government it can't be all bad.

Dec 23rd is the end of time vis a vis the Mayan prediciton.

If we survive that event there is the Asteroid which arrives in the early part of next year and another Tungusta explosion occurrs.

Then again we can eat and absord the protective shield of this Armored Catfish!

Pass the lemon sauce!
