Whatโ€™s a more serious imminent threat. Global warming or an EMP from an enemy or the sun? An EMP could wipe out 90% of the US population in one year. Iโ€™m not sure about the effects of global warming in a century.

An EMP, since it COULD happen 5 seconds from now.

For now. We’re due for a super solar storm. The one in 1853 started telegraph stations on fire it was so bad. The cable under the ocean had to be replaced.

EMP, of course. Even at the exponentially increased rate of warming that we’re causing, it will be a massive amount of time on the human timescale before it poses a serious threat to humanity.

An EMP threat is probably the single biggest threat to the US. It’s get ugly knowing not only the sun can do I๏ธt to us but so could our enemies.

Imminent? EMP.

There is no stopping global climate change. Only the fooled believe man has created a catastrophic change to the world’s climate.

Better to spend the money to adjust and to prevent more eminent threats, such as an EMP.

Even if we are partially responsible, Al Gore the large says that we’re past the point of no return. So the only solution is technology to adapt and move to more sustainable areas.

We are most definitely at least partially responsible. However, you’re right in that it is absolutely not an eminent threat, and that adapting and moving to more sustainable areas is important.

No question an EMP is a far greater IMMINENT threat.

Which is a greater imminent threat? A knife to the head or a gun to the head? The gun to the head goes straight to destruction.

I’m not sure about your analogy. I don’t think it works. Got another?

EMPs to that magnitude are not a threat. They are destruction.

Global warming is natural and not a threat. Co2 is naturally occurring and not harmful to people. It’s beneficial to plants.

Mass extinctions are natural and thus not a threat, right?

You’re extremely uneducated if you don’t understand the effects of high amount of CO2 emissions

Like more rapid plant growth which in turn causes the co2 levels to decrease?

EMP. I highly recommend “1 Second After” by Forstchen. Forwarder Newt Gingrich.

I’ve read that book, and others of that genre. It’s scary have fast things can change and go bad. EMP is a very real danger, and delaying action to fix the problem risks our national security.

I’m kinda surprised by the responses of the democrats and independents. Half of Dems and 18 percent of independents are willing to spend 1 trillion per year to cut the world temp by just .03° but not 2 billion to protect us from a solar flare that will definitely happen. And probably soon. They happen every century on average. And it’s been over 150 years since the last one. The one in 1853 was so strong that telegraph stations started on fire and the underwater cable across The Atlantic had to be replaced. But that was the only electronics back then. Imagine if it happened tomorrow. No food after 3 days, water and sewage would stop immediately and no fuel for vehicles. A mass die off is eminent.

It’s getting worse, nor better. 60% of Dems and 1/3 of independents are in denial.

If they think this is a partisan issue, I’m sorry, but that’ll just shows the ignorance on the left. It’s like they have this massive inexplicable NEED for global warming to be the biggest problem on earth and that need is so strong, they’ll turn a blind eye to other very real, and likely far more immediate, threats. Craziness.

Agreed. I think that their stances/statements are a great litmus test to gauge just how many citizens have fallen prey to their immaculate destruction of the educational system.

Krystina, I think blatant denial of something like climate change just makes people want to oppose those who do so. Even against their better reason.

I’m not sure she denied it. I think what she said is that the left wants desperately for it to be more important than anything. And I think that it’s obvious when you look at the results of the poll 58% of democrats think that global warming is more important and devastating than EMP. Which of course is false.

EMP by a mile. The good news is that it’s something that we can actually protect ourselves against. The bad news is we had a two term President who hated America and did absolutely nothing to protect it or us during that time. Thankfully though, we have a new President in who loves the country and is taking steps to address this issue now. Let’s just hope it’s not too late.

Let’s hope congress listens and starts something soon. In the meantime. Have a Survivalist attitude and get some provisions together. We should anyway for a natural disaster.

EMP by a “country mile”, and basic provisions (or at the very least the tools/knowledge to obtain such) should be a household standard.
