WALL STREET JOURNAL: Gingrich’s Worthy Brain Pulse: An electromagnetic pulse attack is not a fanciful notion. No, it’s not, and it wasn’t Gingrich’s flight of fancy, either.

While William Forstchen’s One Second After is pretty much a worst-case scenario, even lesser catastrophes could be pretty awful. Plus there’s the threat of a natural electromagnetic pulse from solar storms, something that has already happened. We need to be hardening up our infrastructure against this sort of thing, along with other potential catastrophes.
