Have you noticed? Global warming has sort of gone away. What happened to Al Gore? Funny isn’t it? We had the worst summer in recent weather history this year: Drop dead temperatures, and fire, after fire, after fire, and they didn’t get much notice. They did talk about the price of corn.
Nobody even suggested that this drought was caused by global warming. Don’t you find that–weird?
They must have done some polls, and since it’s an election year, decided to shut up about it.
Last night I was listening to Coast to Coast, which I do every night, because I fall asleep to it, and they had an MIT guy on named, Mat Stein. This guy was worried. He got me worried. Just a few days ago the sun let out some huge solar flares, and we were lucky..They were on the surface of the sun that doesn’t face us..and according to Mat, we are overdue for a big event. After all, he says the US has been hit with two big ones in their history, but the only thing that happened was the telegraph wires were fried.
That was back in 1859. Before the Civil War. BA…Before Apple.
But now, if we had one hit us, like the new Cable program just released, “Revolution” (It shows the US shutting down after a EMP strike) it would wipe out everything, and everyone would be without pretty much everything for at least 3 years.
And that’s not the worst of it. We have 104 nuclear reactors here in the States, and they can only go 3 weeks without backup before exploding. The backup runs on electricity. So you may be stocked up with food and water, but what good will it do you if you are 50 miles from one?
And here’s the kicker. Mat says they HAVE the technology to protect our electrical gird…but..it would cost around a billion dollars to protect them all….the generators and the nuclear plants. He couldn’t understand why this wasn’t right up on top of National Security urgency. Because after all…Bernanke and the stimulus have been what…now…800 billion and counting?
Instead of sending billions to the Middle East, filled with men who want us dead, maybe now would be a good time to spend that money right here and protect us all from the horrors of an EMP. After all, Putin’s submarines are scouting around our waters…all it takes is one big one shot from a sub.
Mat wanted everyone to call their Senators to make this a high priority, because…he thinks they don’t know. I thought it funny he should say this, because I guess he missed that big CNN 2- hour special put on by Homeland Security—where they “war gamed” the whole EMP attack by sun or foreign attack scenario for the American people. Oh yes, all the big wigs were there.
Yes, they know. And they played that war game out on TV to cover their own butts should something happen, because it was all about:” We can’t do a thing!” We are helpless! We the government will just have to watch people die!” ” We might never know who attacked us so we can’t retaliate!”
We are as safe from EMP as the citizens of Pompeii, were from being smothered by Mt. Vesuvius.
Except that happened in A.D. 79.
This is 2012.
When a President can’t even protect a simple ambassador, what make you think he can protect any of us? What makes you think that THIS President even cares if we get hit? He will just become President forever and go into his ginormous bunker with all this friends, and Beyoncé. And while the world is screaming “Death to America!” don’t you think that maybe, just maybe, they should get to work on this?
And what bothers me more than anything is ALL the movies that have been coming out about the world ending, as if they are trying to socially engineer us all to expect it.
And now you know why I didn’t post yesterday.
