I held off posting this article for a few days since I honestly assumed it was satire or a joke or that there would be some followup revealing it to be a hoax of some kind.
Still am not convinced there is any real substance to it.
Bottom line is that American energy producers (i.e. NON-government private industry) is actually studying ways to protect the grid from EMP attacks. Seeing as how several clearly insane rogue nations have the capability to inflict such an attack on the U.S. and other Western industrialized nations that’s a good thing.
Clearly the Federal government has not time to waste on such trivial matter when it has to focus all it’s money and energy on important matters like opening girls bathrooms to men and increasing benefits to illegal aliens. They are paid more in benefits than destitute Americans but it’s still clearly not a sufficient amount.
The possible kicker though is that the industry groups are working with the DOE (Department of Energy) in this project. The old saying “If you want to destroy something get the government involved.” is still true. I have no doubt that the industry engineers will come up with solutions but there is a good chance that the DOE will regulate their actions out of existence, require decades long environmental impact studies, make them too expensive to actually implement or in some other way render industries effort null and void leaving us as vulnerable if not more vulnerable than we are right now.
Nevertheless it is one little spark of light in a dark world.
