Preparatio­ns needed


We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromag­netic pulse event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country (e.g. China may already have the capability — which it may use in an economic crisis) or it can occur naturally. It could result in devastatin­g loss of life. There is disagreeme­nt on this, but why take chances?

We should also have a ground-based GPS back-up system, (like Russia has) or we could lose internet at the least in an anti-satellite attack.
