The Greatest Danger Following An EMP

There are few toic that spark more fear in many than the thought of an EMP attack.  In a personal communication I had with former Congreman Trent Franks, he told myself and my Pastor at the time, that an EMP attack is not a question of if, but when.

Many of you have heard the projections. Within two years following an EMP, 90% of us would be dead. Life would be on continuous battle against each other and the elements along with trying to acquire needed resources. There is something that many do not talk about. And I say this to the dozens of writers and broadcasters who have recently put this on their radar. The main danger and the greatest loss of life following an EMP will come from the effects that a power loss will have on nuclear power plants.

A Note From the Inside

A few yeaars ago, I received a communication from a reader, who is a nuclear power plant employee, that warned me about an impending FEMA visit to the nuclear power plant at Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant in Arizona.

Dave, just wanted to let you know that F/’E/’M/’A is touring our Nuc Plant this morning… We are scheduled to have 18 people from this organization touring the plant this morning. Just thought it was interesting, and thought you might want to know.
Given what I know about the strange events surrounding the previous Grid Ex II drill and the apparent Chinese military takeover of our solar energy farms with a front group controlled by the Chinese military, plus the fact that a Chinese solar energy zone is located near the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant, I am a little more than suspicious about the motive behind the FEMA inspection of the plant. Is something big happening? Is this the next false flag?

Subsequently, I decided to examine the likelihood of a monumental nuclear catastrophe in this country due to a take down of the power grid. All discussions about a catastrophic failure of any nuclear facility must begin with a cursory analysis of what we have learned about the Fukushima event. Does anyone else smell the presence of the Chinese through all of this given what we know about Chinese Solar Energy Zones in the United States and their proximity to several nuclear power plants?

Lessons Learned from Fukushima

Fukushima is often spoken of by many, as a possible extinction level event because of the radiation threat. Fukushima was an extinction level event for the Pacific Ocean and it continues to wreak havoc upon the world and in the United States as we are being bathed in deadly radiation from this event.

Coming to a neighborhood near you.

Because of Fukushima, fish are becoming inedible and the ocean currents as well as the prevailing ocean winds are carrying deadly radiation. Undoubtedly, by this time, the radioactivity has made its way into the transpiration cycle which means that crops are being dowsed with deadly radiation. The radiation has undoubtedly made its way into the water table in many areas and impacts every aspect of the food supply. The health costs to human beings is incalculable. However, this article is not about the devastation at Fukushima, instead, this article focuses on the fact that North America could have a total of 124 Fukushima events if the necessary conditions were present.

A Festering Problem

Long before Fukushima, American regulators knew that a power failure lasting for days involving the power grid connected to a nuclear plant, regardless of the cause, would most likely lead to a dangerous radioactive leak in at least several nuclear power plants. A complete loss of electrical power poses a major problem for nuclear power plants because the reactor core must be kept cool as well as the back-up cooling systems, all of which require massive amounts of power to work. Heretofore, all the NERC drills which test the readiness of a nuclear power plant are predicated on the notion that a blackout will only last 24 hours or less. Amazingly, this is the sum total of a NERC litmus test.   Although we have the technology needed to harden and protect our grid from an EMP event, whether natural or man-made, we have failed to do so. The cost for protecting the entire grid is placed at about the cost for one B-1 Stealth Bomber. Yet, as a nation, we have done nothing. This is inexplicable and inexcusable.

Our collective inaction against protecting the grid prompted Congressman Franks to write a scathing letter to the top officials of NERC. However, the good Congressman failed to mention the most important aspect of this problem. The problem is entirely fixable and NERC and the US government are leaving the American people and its infrastructure totally unprotected from a total meltdown of nuclear power plants as a result of a prolonged power failure.

Critical Analyses

According to Judy Haar, a recognized expert in nuclear plant failure analyses, when a nuclear power plant loses access to off-grid electricity, the event is referred to as a “station blackout”. Haar states that all 104 US nuclear power plants are built to withstand electrical outages without experiencing any core damage, through the activation of an automatic start up of emergency generators powered by diesel. Further, when emergency power kicks in, an automatic shutdown of the nuclear power plant commences. The dangerous control rods are dropped into the core, while water is pumped by the diesel power generators into the reactor to reduce the heat and thus, prevent a meltdown. Here is the catch in this process, the spent fuel rods are encased in both a primary and secondary containment structure which is designed to withstand a core meltdown. However, should the pumps stop because either the generators fail or diesel fuel is not available, the fuel rods are subsequently uncovered and a Fukushima type of core meltdown commences immediately. At this point, I took Judy Haar’s comments to a source of mine at the Palo Verde Nuclear power plant. My source informed me that as per NERC policy, nuclear power plants are required to have enough diesel fuel to run for a period of seven days. Some plants have thirty days of diesel. This is the good news, but it is all downhill after the 7/30 day scenarios.

The Unresolved Power Blackout Problem

A long-term loss of outside electrical power will most certainly interrupt the circulation of cooling water to the pools. Another one of my Palo Verde nuclear power plant sources informed me that there is no long term solution to a power blackout and that all bets are off if the blackout is due to an EMP attack.

A more detailed analysis reveals that the spent fuel pools carry depleted fuel for the reactor. Normally, this spent fuel has had time to considerably decay and therefore, reducing radioactivity and heat. However, the newer discharged fuel still produces heat and needs cooling. Housed in high density storage racks, contained in buildings that vent directly into the atmosphere, radiation containment is not accounted for with regard to the spent fuel racks. In other words, there is no capture mechanism. In this scenario, accompanied by a lengthy electrical outage, and with the emergency power waning due to either generator failure or a lack of diesel needed to power the generators, the plant could lose the ability to provide cooling. The water will subsequently heat up, boil away and uncover the spent fuel rods which required being covered in at least 25 feet of water to remain benign from any deleterious effects. Ultimately, this would lead to fires as well and the release of radioactivity into the atmosphere. This would be the beginning of another Fukushima event right here on American soil. Both my source and Haar shared exactly the same scenario about how a meltdown would occur. Subsequently, I spoke with Roger Landry who worked for Raytheon in various Department of Defense projects for 28 years, many of them in this arena and Roger also confirmed this information and that the above information is well known in the industry. When I examine Congressman Franks letter to NERC and I read between the lines, it is clear that Franks knows of this risk as well, he just stops short of specifically mentioning it in his letter.

Placing Odds On a Failure Is a Fools Errand

An analysis of individual plant risks released in 2003 by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission shows that for 39 of the 104 nuclear reactors, the risk of core damage from a blackout was greater than 1 in 100,000. At 45 other plants the risk is greater than 1 in 1 million, the threshold NRC is using to determine which severe accidents should be evaluated in its latest analysis. According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Beaver Valley Power Station, Unit 1, in Pennsylvania has the greatest risk of experiencing a core meltdown, 6.5 in 100,000, according to the analysis. These odds don’t sound like much until you consider that we have 124 nuclear power generating plants in the US and Canada and when we consider each individual facility, the odds of failure climb. Howmany meltdowns would it take in this country before our citizens would be condemned to the hellish nightmare, or worse, being experienced by the Japanese on a permanent basis?

The Question That’s Not Being Asked

None of the NERC, or the Nuclear Regulatory tests of handling a prolonged blackout at a nuclear power plant has answered two critical questions, “What happens when these nuclear power plants run out of diesel fuel needed to run the generators”, and “What happens when some of these generators fail”? In the event of an EMP attack, can tanker trucks with diesel fuel get to all of the nuclear power plants in the US in time to re-fuel them before they stop running? Will tanker trucks even be running themselves in the aftermath of an EMP attack? And in the event of an EMP attack, it is not likely that any plant which runs low on fuel, or has a generator malfunctions, will ever get any help to mitigate the crisis prior to a plethora of meltdowns occurring. Thus, every nuclear power plant in the country has the potential to cause a Chernobyl or Fukushima type accident if our country is hit by an EMP attack.

CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE 124 FUKUSHIMA EVENTS IN NORTH AMERICA HAPPENING AT THE SAME TIME? THIS WOULD CONSTITUTE THE ULTIMATE DEPOPULATION EVENT.

…And There Is More…

The ramifications raised in the previous paragraphs are significant. What if the blackout lasts longer than 24 hours? What if the reason for the blackout is an EMP burst caused by a high altitude nuclear blast and transportation comes to a standstill? In this instance, the cavalry is not coming. Adding fuel to the fire lies in the fact that the power transformers presently take at least one year to replace. Today, there is a three year backlog on ordering because so many have been ordered by China. This makes one wonder what the Chinese are preparing for with these multiple orders for both transformers and generators. In short, our unpreparedness is a prescription for disaster. As a byproduct of my investigation, I have discovered that most, if not all, of the nuclear power plants are on known earthquake fault lines. All of California’s nuclear power plants are located on an earthquake fault line. Can anyone tell me why would anyone in their right mind build a nuclear power plant on a fault line? To see the depth of this threat you can visit an interactive, overlay map at this site.

Conclusion

I have studied this issue for almost 5 months and this is the most elusive topic that I have ever investigated. The more facts I gather about the threat of a mass nuclear meltdown in this country, the more questions I realize that are going unanswered. With regard to the nuclear power industry we have the proverbial tiger by the tail. Former DHS Director, Big Sis (Napolitano) stated that it is not matter of if we have a mass power grid take down, but it is a matter of when. I would echo her concerns and apply the “not if, but when” admonition to the possibility of a mass meltdown in this country. It is only a matter of time until this scenario for disaster comes to fruition. Our collective negligence and high level of extreme depraved indifference on the part of NERC is criminal because this is indeed an Extinction Level Event. georgia guidestonesAt the end of the day, can anyone tell me why would any country be so negligent as to not provide its nuclear plants a fool proof method to cool the secondary processes of its nuclear materials at all of its plants? Why would ANY nuclear power plant be built on an earthquake fault line? Why are we even using nuclear energy under these circumstances? And why are we allowing the Chinese to park right next door to so many nuclear power plants? Why did we build so many on fault lines?

    China, Russia and North Korea will likely be the culprit of an EMP attack on N American continent in the event of global war. And we do have our own as well bec we are no 1 in military expenditure. We can hit them with EMP as well.

    After the reality of the on-going Fukushima disaster took hold, Germany commenced shutdowns of all nuclear generating facilities to be complete in 2022.

    Not so with the United States: https://www.postandcourier.com/business/another-sc-nuclear-boondoggle-could-soon-meet-its-end-this/article_e7096912-590a-11e8-b88a-a76a2bf0e36e.html

    Hello Mr. Hodges maybe it won’t be an EMP. And our country deep state government simply shining down the grandson making it look like an EMP attack.

    Hello Mr. Hodges, maybe it won’t be an EMP. Our country deep state government MAY simply shUt down the gridd making it look like an EMP attack and blame it on another country.

    Silly man. You already have your answer. The illuminati has their fail safe plan and this is it. You thought the Georgia Guidestones was a joke? Hardly. In a sick twist, in order to assuage the excuse for a soul these people have, they like to give warning before an event happens. Hollywood is the device they use. Why destroy the world with nukes? Lose all that beautiful real estate? Hardly. They admire their possessions far more than people. People are at best just another commodity to be traded or disposed of as they see fit. They look upon such an event as being the most merciful death they could give us.

    There are several things to understand about real EMP – because we have been lied to about everything.

    An EM Pulse (EMP) is a pulse of electromagnetic (EM) energy that can by analyzed as a bundle of EM frequencies that peaks in the megahertz range. https://tinyurl.com/yavm7d3d says the pulse risetimes are between 5 and 10 nsec. Using https://tinyurl.com/mndulbo that means that the peak energy wavelengths are in the 5 to 10 meter range. That means that conductors of around that length are the best receivers. Longer wires are less efficient, but their greater length makes for greater energy absorption. Shorter wires will both be exposed to less pulse energy (because of size) and are less efficient absorbers, so portable devices might be immune. If devices are attached to power or communication lines then they are vulnerable to those long wires’ absorption.

    Most vehicles should be immune because they are naturally hardened to ignition pulse interference, and encased in a conductive metal (shielding) body. However, we have been brainwashed to fear their sensitivity to EMP. Meanwhile, all vehicles since 2004 are mandated to have their computer systems connected to the cell phone network. That is why they can be remotely hijacked like https://tinyurl.com/hecy2en . For aerial vehicles see https://tinyurl.com/yd2wpgte .

    I believe there will be a high altitude explosion – images on TV – and all the talking heads will say it produced an EMP. Meanwhile, all the cars will be signaled to die. The ones that still move will be roadblocked. The ones that avoid the roadblocks will be destroyed by drones. Those latter vehicles will be found by higher-level drones or satellites and image processing software. This could be one of the reasons for Bill Gates satellites. https://tinyurl.com/y88er8gz

    The real or simulated explosion / EMP will also be used as a cover for destroying major parts of the energy grid with the stuxnet worm attacking SCADA systems https://tinyurl.com/ycrmm96y – like infected the Fukushima control room. https://tinyurl.com/yd2l96fy

    You may recall that in 1999 a test was conducted by a fed agency on the power plants emergency generator backups. Most of the emergency backup generators would not even start up.

  8. DB May 24, 2018 at 2:13 pm

    All good points Dave, but invaders like China and Russia want our country inhabitable not inhabitable. If they trigger nuclear meltdowns by the dozens, the country they want to take over is worthless. Unless getting us out of the way is there goal, then they’re good to go.

  9. Peter Anderson May 24, 2018 at 2:45 pm

    Greetings Dave,
    I have been reading your articles for several years now and am saying “Thank You” for exposing the truth behind the world’s activities.
    Dave, I worked at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) in Southern California from 1985 to 1990 where because of my prior experience with instrument/computer control systems, I was assigned the programming of the Foxboro Spec 200micro for the plants upgrading to Three Mile Island specs.
    My comment concerns the understanding of what happens when the plants’ reactor shuts down. If a reactor, operating at 100% power, shuts down it continues to generate heat due to decaying reactor fission products at about 10% of operating level. But, the heat decays at approximately 50% every 24 hour period. So 50% to the 7th power (one week of shutdown) is approximately 1%. Therefore, a week after shutdown the reactor is generation only 1% of its max power level and does NOT need forced cooling. Sufficient cooling can be accomplished though convection and conduction within the reactor core. This is the reason most plants have only a seven day diesel fuel storage capacity. So if there is no damage to the cooling system within that seven day period there is no danger of a meltdown. Note: Diesels can be started manually. Hope this eases some of your readers fears.

    I have a college friend that obtained a degree in Nuclear Engineering. He subsequently became the CEO of a power company. He steered that company away from building and operating a nuclear power plan. They still have none to this day. His reason, “You cant afford the cost of storing spent nuclear fuel.”

  11. Gifford Rosine May 24, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    I have a friend that received a Doctorate degree in Nuclear Engineering. He subsequently became a CEO of an electrical power company. H recommended the company not build a nuclear power plant. His reason, “You cannot afford the cost of spent fuel storage for the length of time required.” They have no nuclear power facilities to this day.

    Remember God chose you from the beginning to live this remarkable time for His honor and glory forever. Put your trust and faith in God and Son they are in charge and love you.

    A power plant meltdown will be like the movie On The Beach (2000) a remake from 1959, a mass die off when radiation kills the entire planet. Google it in and watch the entire ’59 movie. The newer one was on a TV mini series. The globalists need slaves, so this won’t be allowed to happen. I think it will be bio weapons and vaccines for depop.

  14. Keven May 25, 2018 at 8:14 am

    This is where the zombie apocalypse is going to come into play.. all these people wondering where to go how they’re going to eat to survive..there’s really no place to go except death or Underground and a lot of these zombies are not going to know that because they don’t pay attention. but it’s going to be rough for a lot of us.. but you know if this ever happens … good luck.

  15. Judy May 25, 2018 at 9:13 am

    Why? Because this is how deep the deep state goes. All this has been planned decades ago by the globalists. Because the people have been so dumbed down they have been asleep at the wheel, including the politicians.

  16. Jeff Gerst May 25, 2018 at 9:49 am

    We can’t over look the fact that if there is an EMP, the power plant workers will want to get to their families also. Will they be dedicated enough to stay on the job until the plant has been safely shut down? I don’t know if the number is 100% correct but I’ve been told there are 30 nuclear power plants adjacent to the New Madrid fault line. I suspect this is where the nuclear meltdowns are going to take place. If the Navy’s projected map is accurate, many of these plants will immediately be under water which will of course prevent any safety controls from operating at all.

  17. Stan S. May 26, 2018 at 12:46 am

    Good sleuthing and questions, Dave. Thanks for asking them.

  18. HARRY E. May 26, 2018 at 9:55 am

    Seriously.
    Be blessed forever, Sir.

  19. Daniel P. May 27, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    I’m no electrical engineer but try to use logic. These power plants produce high voltage “electricity”, so why aren’t there step down transformers on sight to make electricity available to keep the site running during the shut down process, instead of using back up generators with a limited fuel supply? Please explain to me why this couldn’t be done.
