EMP, ELECTROMAGNETIC OR GEOMAGNETIC PULSE An Electromagnetic Pulse can be generated by either a nuclear EMP attack or by solar storms called a Geomagnetic EMP. A severe solar storm can produce geomagnetic storms when combined with Coronal Mass Ejections (CME). CMEs produce huge clouds of plasma that generate strong magnetic fields. In 1972, a 230,000 volt transformer in Canada exploded when rapidly shifting magnetic fields caused by solar weather induced excessive current in the grid. On March 13, 1989, millions of homes and businesses were plunged into darkness when a solar storm caused a blackout in Quebec. But perhaps the largest known CME occurred just before noon on September 1, 1859, and lasted 8 days. The Carrington Event, named after the astronomer Richard Carrington who observed the solar activity as it occurred, caused significant disruption on Earth. According to scientists at the European Space Agency "The entire Earth was engulfed in a gigantic cloud of seething gas, and a blood red aurora erupted across the planet from the poles to the tropics. Around the world, telegraph systems crashed, machines burst into flames and electric shocks rendered operators unconscious. Compasses and other sensitive instruments reeled as if struck by a massive electric fist." For the first time in recorded history, people throughout the Caribbean were treated to spectacular displays of the Aurora Borealis. Of course, 1859 technology was quite low in comparison to today's technology, the telegraph had only been invented 15 years prior. If a CME event of the size and intensity that occurred ion 1859 happened today, it is estimated that the power grid will take between 2 and 10 years to be restored and the following effects will occur: - Municipal water will run out in 48 hours - Sewage systems will stop operating within 2 weeks - Refrigeration will immediately cease - Hospitals and nursing homes will experience shortages in medicine - Food will run out at the grocery stores with 3 days - 97% of all manufacturing will cease - Crop cultivation will decrease by 80% - Food riots and civil unrest will occur within 7 days Steve.
