An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) caused by an enemy attack ( a nuclear device detonated above the atmosphere) over the United can cause entire regions of the country to lose electricity—permanently and could end modern life in America.
An electromagnetic pulse (commonly abbreviated EMP) is a burst of electromagnetic radiation. The abrupt pulse of electromagnetic radiation usually results from certain types of high-energy explosions, especially a nuclear explosion, or from a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field. The resulting rapidly changing electric fields and magnetic fields may couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges.
The KMS 3-2 -- North Korea’s weather satellite or… EMP nuclear device?
On December 12, 2012, the Kwangmyongsong 3-2 (KMS 3-2) was launched into space on a polar orbit, and is said to be an “Earth observation satellite” but is being widely portrayed as a veiled ballistic missile test.

From 8 April to 16 April the satellite passes over the East Coast of America and as far west as just west of the New Madrid fault line over and over and over again and some people suggest that the KMS 3-2 may actually be a Super-EMP nuclear device.
The satellite orbit along the eastern of the U.S at an altitude of about 300 miles ( 500 km ) the perfect altitude for an EMP attack and maximum damage.
It’s just speculation but given the on-going nuclear treats from North Korea we cannot rule out the possibility of an EMP attack.

An EMP attack is America’s “Achilles heel”
The result of a massive EMP event could be devastating. Communications would collapse, transportation would halt, and electrical power would simply be nonexistent. Not even a global humanitarian effort would be enough to keep hundreds of millions of Americans from death by starvation, exposure, or lack of medicine. Nor would the catastrophe stop at U.S. borders. Most of Canada would be devastated, too, as its infrastructure is integrated with the U.S. power grid. Without the American economic engine, the world economy would quickly collapse Earth would most likely recede into the “new” Dark Ages.
Most Americans do not know this. A nation that does not know how to live without technology would be almost entirely stripped of it at that point.
Yes, this could really happen.
