    I wonder how much the EMP threat is being overblown. While a medium-sized detonation at high altitude will knock out pretty much everything in, say, a 500-mile radius or so, that's still pretty localized in terms of the whole country.

    The real question is how far-reaching the effects would be on the electrical grid. Aren't there "circuit breakers" in the system that would pretty quickly isolate the outage? Some of the doomsday folks insinuate that one big boomer over middle America could plunge us all into darkness, but I think that's a huge exaggeration.

    Given your experience and expertise in things nuclear, what's your take on it?
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    The EPM threat is overblown in one aspect.

    Cars do not stop working, the ECUs do not get fried.
    This part a lot to folks cannot believe but its true. for proof just check out the vid on car getting hit by lighting.
    Eminently more powerful than EMP but still drives away.

    As for the electrical grid. though.
    its pretty vulnerable.

    there arent a whole lot of EMP attack scenarios i can think of where the grid would not break down.
