Power Grid Needs Reinforcem­ents


We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromag­netic pulse (EMP) event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country (e.g., China may already have the capability) 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 backup system (like Russia has) or we could lose internet, at the least, in an anti-satellite attack.
