Free Energy Blog:2016:02:11 – She said her body is riddled with electronic chips of varying sizes. She was hoping I might know of way to deactivate them. I suggested being present during one of the military’s tests of their localized EMP weapons – if they’ll let her. (Free Energy Blog February 11, 2016)
Free Energy Blog:2014:07:31 - Billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer has issued an unusual warning for investors, calling the threat of a widespread blackout from an electromagnetic surge the "most significant danger" in the world. (FreeEnergyBlog July 31, 2014)
Free Energy Blog:2013:11:08 (Free Energy Blog November 8, 2013)Directory:Emergency Preparedness / Directory:U.S. Government and Energy / Directory:Electromagnetic > Directory:Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) > Electronic Armageddon (video | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5) - Explorer investigates the science behind the dangers of a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse, or HEMP, from the vantage point of the President. Picture an instantaneous deathblow to the vital engines that power our society, delivered by a nuclear weapon designed not to kill humans but to attack electronics, crippling every aspect of modern society's infrastructure. (YouTube / DiscoveryTVChannel July 16, 2010) Latest: Directory:Electrical Grid / Directory:Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) / Directory:U.S. Government and Energy > Directory: Remedies for Grid Vulnerabilities to Solar Flares - If a blast like the Carrington Event of 1859 occurred again, we could see 100 million people out of electricity for a couple years. However, installing 'surge protection' for the power grid would not be that expensive or difficult – especially when contrasted with the expense of unprotected components failing. A call to action. (PESWiki July 16, 2010) Directory:Emergency Preparedness > Directory:Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) > China Developing Super Electromagnet Pulse Bomb - In gearing up for possible conflicts or war with the United States, the top weapon China is developing is a super electromagnetic pulse bomb that can blanket the U.S. and send America back to the dark ages in less than one second. [Additional need for distributed energy that is EMP resilient] (Examiner July 24, 2011) Latest: Directory:Electrical Grid / Directory:Emergency Preparedness > Zero Hour: The Day The Grid Stood Still - There are several causal factors, natural and manmade, that could bring out modern grid to a stand-still, arguing for the need for distributed, hardened power. Disruption could come from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from a military nuclear detonation, or it could come from a coronal mass ejection (CME) from the sun. (PESN April 30, 2010) Directory:Emergency Preparedness / Directory:Electrical Grid > Directory:Electrical Grid Vulnerability > Directory:Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) > Recent Near Miss Warning Shot (BOGUS): Huge Solar Flare Almost Knocked Out Power Nationwide - Two weeks ago an EMP event from the Sun flashed across the Earth's orbit about two weeks before the Earth got there. It would have knocked out power, effecting cars and iPhones, etc. “for a long time.” Do we deserve such a thing? Efforts to protect the 2,000-3,000 transformers in the US grid are meeting with political resistance. (News:Pure Energy Blog August 4, 2013)
Planes Could Be Brought Down By DIY 'E-bombs' - Electromagnetic pulse weapons capable of frying the electronics in civil airliners can be built using information and components available on the net. All it would take to bring a plane down would be a single but highly energetic microwave radio pulse blasted from a device inside a plane, or on the ground and trained at an aircraft coming in to land.

Tubes were ubiquitous in the early generations of electronic devices, such as radios, televisions, and early computers such as the Colossus which used 2000 tubes, the ENIAC which used nearly 18,000 tubes, and the IBM 700 series. Vacuum tubes inherently have higher resistance to the electromagnetic pulse effect of nuclear explosions. This property kept them in use for certain military applications long after transistors had replaced them elsewhere. Vacuum tubes are still used for very high-powered applications such as microwave ovens, industrial radio-frequency heating, and power amplification for broadcasting.
Tubes are also considered by many people in the audiophile, professional audio, and musician communities to have superior audio characteristics over transistor electronics, due to their warmer, more natural tone. There are many companies which still make specialized audio hardware featuring tube technology. http://peswiki.com/index.php/PowerPedia:Vacuum_tube
