    Do You Think an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Is A Serious Security Concern?

    Should we be preparing for an EMP attack that could devastate any country that relies on electricity and electronics?

    From what I have been reading this is a serious concern in two ways. 

    One would be from an unfriendly nation detonating such a device within the US borders. The EMP could be of varying size.

    The second and perhaps is the possible EMP from our own sun. This could be the most devastating and take years to recover from.

    Yes, we should because all EMPs are caused by nuclear explosions.  Non-nuclear EMP is generated by chemical explosives.  Whether it is EMP or non-nuclear EMP, US should be concerned and prepared for any kind of attacks.

    EMP can take out cruse controls, or most importantly hinder my ability to go on the internet.  That will be devastating...

    I believe that an EMP event, whether from a nuclear explosive or solar flare, is the most likely future disaster facing humanity.  Read the novel, based on fact, One Second After by William R. Forstchen.
