 *The solar storm caused by the Carrington Flare ((http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Solar_storm_of_1859)),​ observed on September 1, 1859 by astronomer Richard Carrington also caused magnetic compasses to lose their ability to point North, burst telegraph transmission lines on fire and zapped telegraph workers, even after the machines were unplugged from the power source. This went on for two days after which everything went back to normal. Had this same magnitude flare happened in today’s world, we would be no longer talking right now as people would be emptying store shelves and mass anarchy would ensue as your credit cards, house lights, automobile, TV, radio, cell phone, watch, stove, microwave, fridge, DVD player, water boiler, toilet, sink and everything else surrounding you stopped working, yes I said sink and toilet as it takes micro electronic circuitry to power the water pumps giving you potable water and access to a sewer that also relies on fresh water to pump the sewage downstream. The effects of an EMP on today’s society are doomsday scenario level 10 out of 10 levels. For example how many people do you know that could survive empty handed for a few weeks in the woods? ​ *The solar storm caused by the Carrington Flare ((http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Solar_storm_of_1859)),​ observed on September 1, 1859 by astronomer Richard Carrington also caused magnetic compasses to lose their ability to point North, burst telegraph transmission lines on fire and zapped telegraph workers, even after the machines were unplugged from the power source.

 Frightening indeed and if one were to add all these scary factors together and weigh them in a bundle, you'd surely freak out, well unless you live in a Faraday Cage with a Diesel generator on standby just in case your Call of Duty PlayStation looses power, and a few hundred barrels of black gold in a shed outback, then by all means, this article wasn't written for you, please grab some nachos, make sure you have a solid Blu-ray library and a basement full of delicious tuna and tomato paste sauce and enjoy the nocturnal rainbow show! Frightening indeed and if one were to add all these scary factors together and weigh them in a bundle, you'd surely freak out, well unless you live in a Faraday Cage with a Diesel generator on standby just in case your Call of Duty PlayStation looses power, and a few hundred barrels of black gold in a shed outback, then by all means, this article wasn't written for you, please grab some nachos, make sure you have a solid Blu-ray library and a basement full of delicious tuna and tomato paste sauce and enjoy the nocturnal rainbow show!
- *As if that wasn't enough of a scare, it turns out that nuclear warheads cause EMP pulses as well when they explode. Great, so now you’re telling us that not only does an ICBM go boom, they also turn off the lights for everyone within line of sight! But that’s not all, direct line of sight from an ICBM’s suborbital flight trajectory, pretty much covers an entire continent, but not to worry, you’re building a Faraday Cage as we speak right?  + *As if that wasn't enough of a scare, it turns out that nuclear warheads cause EMP pulses as well when they explode. Great, so now you’re telling us that not only does an ICBM go boom, they also turn off the lights for everyone within line of sight! But that’s not all, direct line of sight from an ICBM’s suborbital flight trajectory ​a hundred miles up, pretty much covers an entire continent, but not to worry, ​the government has looked into this since the 70's and is covering our backs hopefully. OK, and you’re building a Faraday Cage as we speak right?  
-So, we've established the two major threats to our electronic society, high flying nukes and the sun. Since telling North Koreans or the sun to calm down doesn'​t work, let us look into alternatives. ​+*So far, we've established the two major threats to our electronic society, high flying nukes and the sun.

  *Meet brainiac Michael ​ Faraday((http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Faraday_cage)),​ scientist extraordinaire,​ a man who could think inside a box and did it extremely well. The Faraday cage was named in his honor as he is the first that constructed a veritable shield against Electro Magnetic Pulses. ​  *Meet brainiac Michael ​ Faraday((http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Faraday_cage)),​ scientist extraordinaire,​ a man who could think inside a box and did it extremely well.

-What is a Faraday cage? A Faraday cage is basically a rudimentary metallic cage that is placed around an object and grounded. It creates a barrier to EMP radiation. It is basically an EMP shield. Any type of metallic wiring can be used, even chicken coop wire, fencing wires, anything that has a continuous connection and is able to conduct an electric current. This cage is then grounded to the earth and then voila, your shields are up. No solar flares or sneaky ICBM’s can stop you! Unfortunately,​ again, if your power source comes from outside your own doomsday bunker, such as the local power company, chances are they aren't Faraday grounded! ​+*What is a Faraday cage?

 Congress has also studied this threat ((http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Electromagnetic_pulse))and came up with an urgent plan to ground all power stations and major transformers running our electric grid, the total cost was in the neighborhood of 200 billion. They will continue to debate where this money will come from until it is probably too late.  Congress has also studied this threat ((http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Electromagnetic_pulse))and came up with an urgent plan to ground all power stations and major transformers running our electric grid, the total cost was in the neighborhood of 200 billion.

  *The purpose of this article is not to scare you, it is to inform you and warn you. A Faraday cage is relatively simple to make and instructions can be found on the web for how implement this EMP shield for your most treasured electronics. My advice would be to build a rudimentary Faraday cage somewhere in your garage, or a spare closet, (yeah right, I've never met anyone with an empty garage or a spare closet) and hope for the best. In case of CME, short for Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun, which if strong enough will cause the dreaded EMP effect, you have about 8 minutes to a few hours to take your precious iPhone, iPad and solid state Walkman and throw them in the cage where they will survive the electric storm in peace and safety.  *The purpose of this article is not to scare you, it is to inform you and warn you.

-For those of us that are more paranoid, I suggest grounding and caging your whole house, that however will require quite the considerable effort as all your openings will have to be shielded as well, things such as windows and doors. Perhaps starting with a garage will be quite sufficient as that at least will take care of your transportation needs and give you a head start on the zombie apocalypse that no doubt will be commencing shortly outside as people panic and run to the store to get the last bag of Doritos and Coke bottles. ​+*For those of us that are more paranoid, I suggest grounding and caging your whole house, that however will require quite the considerable effort as all your openings will have to be shielded as well, things such as windows and doors.

 *I’ll leave you with this thought, a far and away day this disaster may bring, build a Faraday cage and in the end you will win! No, seriously though, EMP is real and so is the danger, luckily there is a defense against it. I suggest at least you read up on it and take the necessary precautions for you and your precious family of electronic keepsakes. *I’ll leave you with this thought, a far and away day this disaster may bring, build a Faraday cage and in the end you will win!
