Faraday Cages For Survival: The Ultimate Beginner's Guide On What Faraday Cages Are, Why You Need One, and How To Build It (Paperback)
While the effects of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack may sound completely harmless or at least over-exaggerated, the truth is it would be devastating and the United States is not prepared for it. An EMP is simply a quick but intense burst of energy that has the potential to wipe out information, electrical, and power grid systems across a wide area. While EMP's can occur naturally, such as from lightning or a solar flare, they can also happen from man made devices detonated in the atmosphere. If a powerful enough EMP were to be detonated at a high enough altitude in the center of the United States, the power grid would be completely knocked out over an incredibly vast area spanning hundreds if not thousands of miles. Vehicles and electronic devices would cease to work as well. Because the American government is so underprepared for an EMP, it would take at least a full decade at the bare minimum to recover from it, and millions would be killed from starvation, dehydration, murder, and suicide. There can also be no question that if any of our enemies wanted to deal a truly devastating blow to the United States, an EMP is how they would go about it. The good news, however, is that you can prepare for an EMP. And one of the most important preparations you can make for it is to build a Faraday cage to protect your electronic equipment so they will continue to work after the EMP blast. A Faraday cage, which has been around since the 1830s, is simply a protective container with a conductive outside layer to protect the devices inside from the electromagnetic pulse. A Faraday cage can also be built to any size to accommodate whatever it is you need to protect: phones, laptops, appliances, radios, and so on. This book will serve as the ultimate beginner's guide into Faraday cages and how to build them at home. Within the pages of this book we will dive into the following topics on Faraday cages: - How Do Faraday Cages Work? - What Are The Uses For A Faraday Cage? - Why You Need A Faraday Cage - 4 Faraday Cages You Can Build At Home (And How To Build Them) - Items To Store In Your Faraday Cage - Common Faraday Cage Myths Even if you cannot protect everything from an EMP attack, and even though you will not be able to maintain your same way of life after the blast, you can protect a few devices that will help you adjust to life better after the EMP hits. The ability to communicate with others who live a great distance away from you or still having access to critical information will make a huge difference in a world that has been essentially set back to the Stone Ages.
