The report, titled, Electromagnetic Defense Task Force, and the product of a mostly classified summit of officials from 40 agencies just outside of Washington earlier this year, is a forceful call for a new focus on preparing for either an enemy EMP attack or a natural hit such as a solar storm.
While it is focused on the devastating impact an EMP hit would have on the military, it appears to support a congressional warning that up to 90 percent of the population on the East Coast would die in a year of an attack that would dismantle or interfere with electricity, transportation, food processing, and healthcare.
Consider just some of the warnings in the report from the United States Air Force Air University and the Curtis E. LeMay Center for Doctrine Development and Education.
Figuring out just which country launched an attack would be difficult since certain weapons could be delivered in a satellite.
It also noted the development of the 5G mobile network and how it will run communications and why it must be protected, especially since China is the biggest investor in its development.
Because control of 5G is roughly equivalent to control of the Internet, open 5G is critical to freedom and free-market economics. Meanwhile, access to the 5G-millimeter wave bandwidth will be critical to operations in all war-fighting domains, in particular, space command & control, said the white paper.
Lt. Gen. Steven Kwast, the commander of Air Education and Training Command, said, As electromagnetic technologies fuse in new and often dangerous ways, its critical that the military and industry make honest evaluations of present and future conflict states to ensure were proactive rather than reactive.

All of my firearms are EMP-hardened. I’m not too worried.
Make sure you are long in digital currency.
The snowflakes will be the first to go.
I dont see how - Democrats keep making paper ballots long after the election is over.
So the power goes out for a week. And the EBT cards don’t work.
What could wrong in any large democrat controlled diversity city....?
If you want to scare yourself read William Forstchens One Second After. I sleep a little bit better since Trump has reigned Rocket Man in somewhat. I believe EMP is a more credible threat than the nuclear exchange weve all feared since the 50s.
Surprisingly, democrat voter turnout would not be affected.
They say that like it's a bad thing. Just kidding.
A week?! Not hardly. A dedicated attack or severe solar flare would do more harm than a week's inconvenience. Far more.
And I feel fine.
Remember what happened at Walmart and other stores when a temporary glitch denied EBT cards?
We want money...
An EMP will save this country. Illegals will leave, snowflakes will starve, the stupid and the entitled will self destruct or be shot in the process of looting or being stupid. Liberals will be hardest hit. Those left will rebuild.
Wipes out democracy? Sounds good. Will EMP wipe out representative republic? If so, I’m not for it.
I can’t stand democracy. It was an epithet in Greece. It’s nothing more than mob rule.
If anything, EMP will all but guarantee democracy.
Lots of this was covered in a Congressional report about a decade ago.
This seems to be just a rehash by some lobbyist group.
Anybody know anything about the group that sponsored this?
Your food, water, meds, transportation and ammo are not.
As long as we have nuclear missiles on submarines, and assuming the Chinese haven’t hacked those, we should be fine. Anyone who tried an EMP attack on the US would pay the same price as if they tried to nuke us. So no one will do it. Just like with nukes.
The danger from nukes since the end of the cold war has always been the risk that a small one is set off in a major city and we don’t know who did it. That could be done with an EMP too, perhaps, but it would not kill anyone, and would only affect one city. To get the whole US, it has to be set off from space or on reentry. And if they did that, we would know where it came from.
Heck, something like this can happen with a large solar flare. If anything we all should assume not if it will happen but when.
