Please take a moment and sign this petition. We need our government to do the right thing and harden our power grids nationwide against possible EMP attack. Whether it is manmade or from a solar storm, the result will be catastrophic and many people will suffer and possibly die from a long term power outage.
Please spread word about this petition!
Harden the nationwide power grids against Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack
A major threat to America has been largely ignored by those who could prevent it. An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack could wreak havoc on the nation’s electronic systems-shutting down power grids, sources, and supply mechanisms. An EMP attack on the United States could irreparably cripple the country. It could simultaneously inflict large-scale damage and critically limit our recovery abilities. Congress and the new Administration must recognize the significance of the EMP threat and take the necessary steps to protect against it.
