Nuclear EMP

A nuclear detonation high in the atmosphere can cause the energy of the blast to radiate electromagnetic waves.  These come in three frequencies.  The highest frequency wave is the most damaging.  It can couple into even short wires and is so fast that most protective devices will not prevent damage.  The best we can do is to place backup critical components in closed metal boxes called a Faraday cage.  All electronics may be destroyed if the energy is high enough.  This means all modern cars and trucks, boats and planes as well. Phones and all communication devices.  The power grid and water systems that use any electronics will be down. All stored parts that are not in a protected Faraday cage will destroyed as well.  Do not expect the grid or the government to up and functional after a nuclear blast EMP.  The government has not prepared for this type of radiation damage.  There may be small pockets of protected environments but none of them will help you.  You must have your own plan to stay alive after one of these events.  With food and water systems down it will be only a matter of days before the complete breakdown of society.  If you live in a city make plans to leave and know where you are going.  Have a travel kit ready.  Many call this a bug out bag.

For more information on a Faraday cage you can follow this link.

For more information on a bug out bag here is a video.

If this has not scared you enough then watch this video which describes what to expect after the grid goes down.

Do not expect the government or law enforcement to help.  They may instead confiscate anything they wish.  Avoid contact with authorities unless you know for sure the local people and know that they are prepared.  If your local authorities are not ready they will be swamped by people who need help.  You only have the first day to safely move about.

If all of this is new to you then you must make a decision.  You can deny the possibility or you can prepare for what we hope will never happen.


Several years ago I came to realize that many people who think they are prepared for the grid going down or an EMP pulse only really have a temporary water solution.  I saw a need for an inexpensive well pump that operated on a power source immune from the effects of a solar flare or EMP pulse.  I knew that air pressure could be stored easily and made easily by rotary wind vanes or a solar panel and an electric compressor.  This site and products are the water solution I came up with.  It may not be perfect but it will keep you alive.  All of the parts are made of materials which do not make the water unsafe to drink.  Stainless steel, PVC,  and brass make up the main parts.

Everyone should have an emergency water backup plan.  A few gallons of water set aside is great but when it runs out you and everyone else will be searching for clean water.  Open water systems will quickly become contaminated.

In my study of people who prepare for disaster I came across what is known as preppers.  People who try and set aside food or equipment which in a disaster will help them or their neighbors.  We all rely on our technology and if it were to go away  we would lose our ability to survive.  Either exposure, lack of water or food will cause us to wander about with millions of others seeking the necessities of life.

In order to be totally prepared we need to have a plan which supplies shelter, food, and water.  In a major disaster we need to be completely self sufficient with a continuous supply of energy, food, and water.  This is not easy to do.  To attempt to do this on your own will probably not work.  A group of people with the required skills and material will be needed for long term survival.  This site is dedicated to one part of a survival plan.  I will talk about my plans and my systems but I make no guarantee that what I do will work in all environments.  It is best that each of you form your own plans and test all of the systems.  An emergency is not the time to dust off a pile of stuff in the garage to see if it will help you survive.

Please send me any suggestions on survival systems and I will post the ones I think make sense.

This site deals with well pumps, emergency water systems, Preppers, air pump, safe water, EMP issues, Nuclear bomb survival, clean water, Solar flare issues, solar flare 1859, solar flare 1989 Canada, fires caused by electric fields, EMP pulses, emergency survival, Air pressure, inexpensive well pump, cheap well pump, small budget, well case, well cap, solar panals, wind energy, turbine blades, fan blades, electric generation, and many more things.

We at water72 are dedicated to supplying all of the key components so you can safely obtain water in an off grid environment.  The vertical wind vane and solar panel chargers are part of those solutions.  Low tech battery charging controllers are also part of the system we will offer. The systems are made to use renewable sources.  So you could call then green energy systems.  Right now we are projecting that our vertical wind vane will output two horsepower in a stiff wind.  Here in the White Mountains of Arizona a stiff wind is easy to come across.
