Experts Fear Nuclear Famine: “A Disaster So Massive in Scale that No Preparation is Possible”

At last count, there are eight countries in the world that have officially designed, developed and tested nuclear weapons. Another two (Israel and Iran) deny they have built or are building such weapons, but the probability that Israel has them and that Iran is building them is believed by members of the international community to be extremely high.

That being said, it’s only a matter of time before a madman at the helm in any of these ten nuclear-armed states decides to push the button. With the global economy in shambles, the world’s super powers mobilizing military assets, and hundreds of trillions of dollars in unservicable debt soon to be realized by the financial community, how long before history rhymes with previous large-scale events that culminated in the fall of the Roman empire or the World Wars that  devastated tens of millions of lives in the 20th century?

War, it seems, is inevitable. Not just because of the many problems faced by mankind, but because of the nature of mankind itself.

Whether that war is a widespread nuclear conflict involving the world’s super powers, or a more limited event in the middle east involving Pakistan and India, according to a new report published by the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, a nuclear engagement (even a limited one) would lead to widespread destruction across planet earth, with at least 2 billion people at risk of starvation or death.

The kicker? The effects will be so long-lasting, according to the author of the study, that there’s pretty much nothing we can do to survive it:

The threat of nuclear war has been embedded in global consciousness since the invention of the atomic bomb. Most fears are focused on blast radius and radioactive fallout; but the long-term effects of a nuclear conflict could be far more concerning.

According to new research from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War and Physicians for Social Responsibility, a phenomenon known as “nuclear famine” is keeping experts up at night. The study estimates that more than 2 billion people are at risk.

Its author, Ira Helfand, says even a limited nuclear war could lead to “the end of civilization.”

Helfand theorizes it could occur in stages. The first is climate change. Existing literature shows that a regional nuclear war between India and Pakistan could drastically affect temperatures throughout the world. A 2007 study published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics predicts that the soot created by such an event could reduce temps by 1.25°C per year for at least a half-decade.

This would wreak havoc on global crops.

The final stage of this catastrophe is starvation.

With his best guess, Helfand breaks the at-risk into three groups: (a) 870 million people already facing malnourishment, (b) grain-importing nations, and (c) the entire population of China. The first group gets more than 75% of its nutrition from grain, and a significant portion would not be able to afford higher prices.

Grain-importing nations, like South Korea, Japan, most of North Africa, and the Middle East, would be hard hit by trading partners who suddenly decide to stop exporting. Additionally, China’s 1.3 billion citizens would use up their rice and wheat reserves in a few months, and international hoarding may make open-market purchases impossible.

As Helfand has said: “This is a disaster so massive in scale that really no preparation is possible. We must prevent this.”

With the vast majority of the world’s nations still unable to build the bomb, a blanket approach could work. ICAN pleads that the “very survival of humanity depends on nuclear weapons never being used.” via IPNNW Study

The nuclear-armed nations of the world didn’t just build these weapons so they can look at them. Sure, our leaders may claim these weapons are merely deterrents designed to prevent war, but the fact is, advanced weaponry has always been used for the purposes of conquering. Our modern era is no different.

We came dangerously close during the Cuban missile crisis in the early 1960’s. Cooler heads prevailed that day.

And even if starting a war is unintentional, it could happen. On at least one occasion, in 1983, the United States and Russia were literally minutes away from a full-scale confrontation under both country’s policies of mutually assured destruction. It turns out that was a false alarm – but the world was almost destroyed as a result. This is one of the incidents we know about, and given the secrecy behind such military operations, it’s quite possible that there have been more.

The bottom line is that we must assume these weapons will be used at some point – that should be a given. What we don’t know is the scale of the nuclear engagement. It could be that Russia, the United States, Israel, China and North Korea just start lobbing intercontinental ballistic missiles by the hundreds, in which case we’re all pretty much toast. Or, it could be a limited war, with the conflict in India and Pakistan finally coming to a head.

Whatever the case, even if those dropped bombs detonate thousands of miles away from you, there is a strong likelihood that you will feel the direct effects in the form of an almost immediate climate change, food scarcity, extreme price rises, and the riots and looting that are sure to follow.

As with any disaster, whether its a nuclear war, global financial collapse, or a natural disaster, we can fully expect the worst of the worst. As the IPPNW report notes:

We would have to expect panic on a far greater scale following a nuclear war, even if it were a “limited” regional war,  especially as it became clear that there would be significant, sustained agricultural shortfalls over an extended period.

It is probable that there would be hoarding on an international scale as food exporting nations suspended exports in order to assure adequate food supplies for their own populations.

Though the report suggests it is impossible to prepare for such an event, one could argue that survival is certainly possible.

Assuming we survive the nuclear impact and fallout because we live in a strategic location (or just got lucky!), your most immediate concerns would be food, water and self defense, all of which must be considered before such an event occurs if you intend to improve your odds of survival.

Surviving a nuclear winter will, of course, not be easy. According to the report, two billion people could die as a result – probably within a matter of months or a year. A similar scenario would play out should a disaster like a Super EMP weapon or solar flare take out our national (or global) power grid.

Regardless of the disaster, the aftermath, like any crisis or emergency, is survivable.

From the standpoint of preparedness, this means having long-term food stores and a preparedness plan to go along with them. You’ll first need to survive the initial “die-off” as millions of people search for food and resources. Then, when your own food stores run out, you’ll need to be able to produce your own by way of micro-farming and raising your own livestock.

What it will boil down to is adaptability. We can’t predict what will happen or what we will face. But understanding the potential threats, how to mitigate them when they occur, and the options we have available should our best laid plans fail gives us a much better chance of surviving disasters than just pretending like they can’t ever happen.

    Do they want us to give up and just roll over and die?

    • ItIsWell says:

      I truly don’t believe a devastating climate change will occur but I do believe I will see a war before I die that will change society as we know it. I agree that you don’t just have nuclear weapons because their pretty to look at. I believe nuclear weapons are a symbol of power and ten nations are showing off their Muscles right now but won’t hesitate to use them if they want to get a strong message across. That North Korean leader is unpredictable and to me way to cocky. Our leaders want hands on in Syria so bad they can taste it. Russia is getting tired of America in others affairs and overstepping our boundaries. Israel might finally get tired of Iran’s extremist threatening their existence. It seems to me that their is way to much tension in this nuclear world.

        O/T, but looking for some good advice. I have several children ranging from grade 4 thru 9. We enrolled them in a “virtual academy” a few years back under the guise that it was “homeschooling” them. They do attend school at home, but the curriculum has been changed to conform with the “common core” this year. I could go into details of what is in this curriculum if you’re interested, but will make this brief, it is sick. The program is also state-sponsored and tied to a school district. Our kids have to take the state testing. It is at-home-public-school, if you will. We are lucky and live in a “no notice” state, so we have relatively good homeschool laws. I would like advice on True homeschool curriculum’s that are not state-sponsored under the guise of “virtual academies”. I have checked out the Ron Paul curriculum, but it is a little out of my budget. We are of little means, and honestly, I am not the smartest guy in the world. Homeschooling our kids through the “virtual academy” has been very difficult in itself, even with all of the support (i.e. gov control) that is provided, but after seeing the propaganda and idiocy that is interlaced into the most basic of the courses, I have no other choice but to change course. Any advice is greatly appreciated, as this will be a whole new learning curve for me.

        • Be informed says:

          Unless the Sun goes nova or some 20 mile wide asteroid or bigger hits the planet, almost all mega super SHTF ARE survivable. I can’t stand when someone says that the hardy prepper/survivalist CAN’T do it. Sure it will be tough and you may have to live like your common badger or other animal, but it can be done.

          There is something I have brought up before and it is ugly. It is called the NOVICE prepper that prepares for the fun it. Not to survive because they don’t want to immediately lose their family, they prepare to live. some people get into the cutesy prepping of growing a garden, canning, putting away some food and other supplies. In other words they are not really serious about it. They will be far better than the foolish non prepper, but still they are not in it for the long run.

          Seriously, go to many other survival sites and it sounds like a better Homes and Garden discussion. The people here are mostly in it for the long term, and the one defining issue that seems to show this is the seriousness of the people here willing to fully defend all their sacrifice and labor in obtaining what they have stored up.

          To hear someone say that all that effort is for not, is not only discouraging but it is not reality. Between 10 degress north and 10 degrees south the air is constantly in a convention motion that moves the warmer air away from the equator region. This is almost always rising, which means little fallout in this region. The worst spots are the 30 degrees north or south where the air catches up with the rotation on the planet and air sinks, so does the fallout. This is why you have so many deserts at around 30 degrees away from the equator. The American southeast is an exception to desert because of the warm moist gulf stream, the air still sinks here.

          My college professor worked at an extremely high level in the government that dealt with climate modification and knowing how weather, air currents, and everything else about meteorology. He would stress again and again that even with a full scale nuclear exchange between the U.S. and Russia that it was completely survivable if you could get to the correct locations. Also good locations are at about 45 to 50 degrees south of the equator because in this region the air rises more often than not.

          Another aspect of nuclear war is ground burst VS. air burst. Usually ONLY hardened targets are ground bursted. WHY? Because a ground burst takes more explosive charge to take out more of the target. An air burst spreads more of the destructive force over more land. Most targets are considered soft, such as manufacturing bases and cities. Air burst spread a considerable less amount of radiation as much less debris is ionized. This is why Hiroshima and Nagasaki widespread fallout did NOT affect large areas downwind.

          There is also something about the amount of debris kicked up. Much of the data about a nuclear winter is taken into the account that ground bursts are used much more than they would be. Remember, an enemy wants to disable the manufacturing base enough to win the war, that means as much land hit as possible, air bursts.

          This does not mean that a type of genocide war of ground bursts would not be used. Or worse, salting the nukes with cobalt or other elements. Even in this case there are areas that are survivable. The world has been hit with supervolcanoes, 6 mile wide asteroid impacts, comets, probably gamma ray pulses, radiation storms. It will heal. Man is not that much of a bad ass yet to stop the planet from functioning and recovering. It may take a few months or years, but it will recover. The prepper/survivalist that can weather the storm is likely to see that day.

          Selling the durability of the prepper/survivalist off is not a good bet. People that prepare are quite adaptable. The one issue that they need more knowledge about is radiation safety and shielding means of safe places and the person themselves. Gamma radiation is not the only form of radiation that can harm you, beta can to. Learning about the way radiation scatters, hot spots, and much more is discussed in detail in one of the best books out. Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson H. Kearny. This book along with others that you can often get at Library sales offer much know how about radiation.

          The more of a subject that someone knows about, the less frightening it is when you are required to survive it. I highly suggest everyone read about nuclear war survival, fallout survival from not only war but a nuclear diaster like Fukushima in this country or other country. Learn about protecting your thyroid and other internal organs. Read about which parts of livestock are safe to use and what is not. Which crops are dangerous and which are safe to eat no matter how much radiation is around. Everyone will feel a lot better about surviving a nuclear war when they read in some of these excellent survival books about it and how to deal with it.

          One other thing preppers/survivalists are the toughest people around, they usually live in humble existences that are focused on practicality, and know how to handle hardships. Never count the prepper/survivalist out for the count.

          • braveheart says:

            Be Informed, good evening, sir, and once again I agree with everything you say. Anyone who thinks they can count the prepper/survivalist out altogether is living in the biggest fantasy world of all time. My late beloved mrs. braveheart sold me on prepping way back in the 1970s and I’ve never regretted it for 1 minute. I’ve always been into prepping for the long haul and always will be. I’m damned proud of the fact that I’m self-sufficient in my own needs and don’t depend on government or anyone else for anything and I’ll never apologize to anyone for that. If you’re not prepping, then you’re just inepting. MOLON LABE braveheart

          • NC joe says:

            What kind of fool argue vehemently that nuclear war is survivable. Arguing nuclear war is survivable just increases the odds of a nuclear war happening.

            • Be informed says:

              @ NC Joker. Arguing how survivable an event, nuclear war, super volcano, whatever is something every prepper/survivalist should consider. A defeatist attitude is that you can’t survive it, and why even try. This is what of the plague that 99% of the masses are pinned into their heads. You will not increase the odds of an asteroid impact by arguing that it is survivable, you will just admit to yourself that your life is worth fighting for, at least trying to.

              The leaders don’t a f what any of us think. So arguing that a person can survive a nuclear war on this site will only give a little more hope to those that are afraid that they can’t, or other SHTF events. That is extremely positive. I wish you would come on this site and offer some constructive ideas on helping people rather than just attack everyone on a daily basis. I still remember what you wrote a few months ago, that none of us deserve to live. Recall that one?

            • The Old Coach says:

              That’s the meme that Communist sympathizers fed us all through the Cold War, hoping to frighten us into unilateral disarmament. Used against Barry Goldwater. Parroted by Mr. Peanut, who probably knew better but his politics trumped common sense.

              Wasn’t until Reagan, who knew it was hogwash, that we stood up to the Soviet Empire and stared it down.

              So, Josie, did you get that from your Communist daddie and mommie? Were you a Red Diaper Baby? Are you Pajama Boy?

            • Sgt. Dale says:

              Wrong: People survived the two bombs that were dropped on Japan. So its not up to the person, its up to the All Mighty!

              • HD74Man says:

                @Sgt. Dale~WW II history has been my intellectual hobby all my life because of my father’s service. Read a book on the Russian drive to Berlin where a Russia tank column rolled into a town in East Prussia in the Eastern Front counter-attack. All the men had been inscripted into the German army so the town was only inhabited by about 600 women. Well, as a the saying goes, “Pay-backs are a bitch.” After raping all the women, the Russian soldiers nailed them to the sides of various barns. When they ran out of room, they hog-tied around 200 lined up them up on the ground and drove a T-34 over them. When you’re familiar with this form of human ugliness that comes from a descent into chaos and depravity via the onslaught of world war, you tend to view the coming collapse as history repeating itself; you get set in your own mind, you do what ya gotta do to survive, and the rest of the weaklings and ignorant be damned.

            • braveheart says:

              ncjoe, congratulations. This time you sound more stupid than I’ve ever heard you before, so f#$% you!

            • Gregory8 says:

              NC Joe: It’s painfully obvious that you never took logic in college. The survivability of any war depends on the size and scope of that conflict. You seem to equate any nuclear exchange as TEOTWAWKI, which is a false assumption. The large the conflict the larger the destruction will be, but even the so-called ‘nuclear winter’ (full USA-USSR exchange) touted by Dr. Carl Sagan and others in the early 80’s has been soundly denounced by physicists and meteorologist as pure hyperbole based on all their mathematical models. While I’m sure that images of those old movies {Doctor Strangelove, Fail Safe, and On the Beach (total destruction)} still linger in that old brain of yours, they are just that, movies, and not reality. Since large nuclear wars don’t mean the end of everything, then it’s impossible for smaller, regional ones to be either, and these are the more likely ones. One’s between Iran and Israel, or India and Pakistan, are far more plausible because of the inherent animosity in these regions. So you see, your fatalistic-paranoid fear that ANY exchange would mean the demise of ALL civilization is unfounded. And as to your other false analogy that more nukes mean a great chance of war is also ridiculous. Most states with the highest rate of gun ownership also have the lowest rates of gun violence. So again, your conclusion that more of something leads to the increased use of them is also Busted.

              NC Joe

              You create your own reality? Thinking something doesn’t make it happen. As they say, “Liberals see what they believe”; “Conservatives believe what they see”.

                An economic collapse is a done deal. It is not a question of if, but when and or how soon. The reasons why it will happen can best be explained by watching the Ann Barnhart You Tube videos.
                “We the People” have become “We the dumbass, gullible sheep-people”. Americans as a whole are a group of stupid cowards. Case in point, just look at how they will allow their civil rights to be violated by the TSA when want to fly. Or will let their elected officals lie to them and consider it acceptable to be lie to.
                This republic is already gone. It is only a matter of time when we attacked by another contry, likely China or Russia, or both at the same time.

            • Be informed says:

              @ .02. Actually the best place I can think in regards to fallout and remaining hidden would be the northern Andes mountains. Indonesia and southern Philippines would be good places to avoid fallout but too close to China. Galveston is at 29.2 degree north, not a good place to be with fallout. If you choose Texas, Browsville would a little better. If you were to choose somewhere in the U.S. there are areas in southern Alaska in which the air currents and falling air sort of by-pass. Probably the best place, but it is cold and depression is Terra del Fuego, Punta Arenas or Ushuaia southwest of the Falkland Islands. It is just starting summer down there next week. The temperature next week is for the lower to mid 40’s and snow during the night. Lots of penguins, seals and bird life down there, but it is safe when this all happens. Punta Arenas actually looks a lot like Reykjavik, Iceland.

              For those that like wild animals a lot, Kenya is a place where fallout will be at the mininum level. Most of Kenya, other than the coastline is elevated which is good when this happens. Some the Australian claimed islands such as Christmas Island would be fallout safe, but like New Guinea to the east, not earthquake or volcano safe. Anyplace in the tropics I would aim for high altitude. It is incredible the amount of disease that drops from sea level to above 5000 or 6000 feet up or higher.

                i remember back in the mid 70’s our local news papaer put out a extra here in SWFL ,it was discusing the survivability of a nucular attack ,Fl was one of the states that came in on top #1 we dont have a lot of strategic targets ,and few metropolisis ,#2 we have both the gulf breezes and the trade winds so the fall out would only stay over us for 1 – 1 1/2 hours ,as apposed to the mid west depending on the time of the year could have pockets of fall out for weeks ,of course thats all based on trying to read your enemy’s thoughts ,if they just decided to lob them indescrimintly then all bets are off

                I’ve long heard that the best/safest place in the continental US re nuclear fallout would be @ Bandon, OR (westernmost place in lower 48) thanks to jetstreams… And lo and behold, I live very near there. Of course all that talk was before FUshima.

                Not that I ever lost a lot of sleep over nuclear war. No, I don’t trust those who control those WMD’s, we all know their evil ilk. I’m more concerned about the many legit, ‘peaceful’ nuclear reactors, think FUshima again… I grew up on Catawba Island (Ohio) and worked on the Davis Besse power plant (early 70’s). I know a little about them, how they’re put together, etc. A few years back a close (life long) friend was part of a team called in to do a little… ah, emergency repairs. His words, ‘we almost lost it, it was reeeal close’. He is renowned by those who know him for deadpan understatement. He was clearly shaken by his experience there.

                Everything has a life expectancy, have you noticed the shape of our infrastructure in the late great USA? Taken a close look at a 30-40 year old bridge lately? Nuclear power plants have a life expectancy. You will live to see some unpleasant failures of nuclear power plants. Prep? Hell yeah but be ready to be mobile.

              • old guy says:

                BI your information is very helpful. Nukes do worry me even the electric power plants. Nukes worry me more than the economy collapse NWO and agenda 21 & bad government etc. Its not my survival that im worried about. Its the young children especially my grandchildren. I want them to be successful surviving productive and have a decent life. And you correct the more you know and understand about something the less frightening something is. Now about safe locations im of the opinion due to the present pole shifting and possible axis shift that weather patterns & wind currents could greatly change. Maybe fluctuate wildly from day to day. If that occurs and the equator moves to a new location all bets are off?

              • Jack Hammer says:

                Kenya? No way. White guy trying to survive in a black country would be worse than dieing by a nuke.

            • California Girl says:

              According to Joel Skousen, author of Strategic Relocation, the best place to escape nuclear fallout in America is southwestern Oregon through northwestern California. There are no military targets in that region and wind patterns would blow any fallout from targets that lie north or south of there to the east. Other than that the best place on the planet would be in the Southern Hemisphere. The majority of targets are north of the equator and the fallout would remain north as well.

              • Iowa says:

                How’s the west coast enjoying the Fukashima radiation by the way?

              • apache54 says:

                Cali girl,
                i grew in that part of the country and you are correct LOTS of studies were done during the cold war and because of MANY factors, Cave Junction Oregon is one of the many safe places, there are older homes in that entire area with bunkers.

              • Be informed says:

                @ California Girl. In the immediate time after a nuclear war, SW Oregon and North California are good places. After the fallout has had a chance to encircle the planet, air currents would still be best between 10 degrees north and 10 degrees south, and 50-55 degrees away from the equator in the long term. The convection of air around the planet is very complex, and you want to be in areas that the air is rising most or near all the time. Fallout has a tendency to mix in the atmosphere, and the southern hempishere would definitely get hit, especially around that 30 degree south latitude where the air sinks and compresses and creates dry arid conditions. The Pampas Desert in northern Argentia, southern Brazil, Paraguay, north Chile, Bolivia would have a lot of fallout. So would most of central and southern Australia.

              • John Q,
                You never leave it alone. Fine.
                You are;
                The ones who believes the Mother of Harlots, that rides the Beast of ten horns….
                Repeating more Mystery and magic, brought to you by ignorant preachers keeping you down as sheep, in passive submission to ‘Godly Authority’.
                Repeating the lies of the Catholics, and the victimization of the protestors, fulfilling the Lord’s prophecy, that He did not come to bring peace, but a sword… A Sword of Division, sewed in false doctrines of devils, and the abomination that makes the people of God desolate, set up in the true temple of God, your mind.

                God Bless ya, oh foulmouthed one.

An interesting fact I had never thought about but makes so much sense. I agree whole heartily with your statement about the more you know of a subject, the less frightening it is when required to survive it; how true, except when concerning our Gov’t, it doesn’t make it any less frightening.

            “…some people get into the cutesy prepping of growing a garden, canning, putting away some food and other supplies. In other words they are not really serious about it.”

            What do you mean “not serious”? If they are putting food back, learning and maintaining a garden and preserving as much as they can, THEY ARE DOING EXACTLY WHAT WE HERE ON SHTF HAVE BEEN ADVISING THEM TO DO, all this time. Are you saying that we’ve been giving bad advice on this, and other sites?

            I’d be curious to know EXACTLY how much you think people should do to be considered “serious” preppers. By “serious”, do you mean doomsday preppers…and everyone else who isn’t living in a cave and running around in fatigues with a deer on a pole is just playing at prepping?

            Prepping for what?

            I’m about as hard-core die-hard as they come, but even I can recognize that there could be a point in the future, where something so terrible happens, making surviving on this rock rather pointless.

            I wouldn’t want to be THE LAST HUMAN STANDING on a totaled, desolate planet that won’t recover for centuries to come. About the only ones THAT prepared are the elites—and they used OUR money to do it. Does that mean anyone less prepared than a multi-million dollar bunker full of decades worth of supplies is “not serious” about prepping?

            I agree with most everything else you posted, EXCEPT the part about “cutesy prepping”. Let them be “cute” about it if they want to—as long as their preps keep them out of mine for as long as possible.

          • durango kidd says:

            This is precisely why the USA GAVE the design for the L-88 neutron bomb to the Chinese and claimed it was stolen by a Chinese American scientist.

            It is also why the USA made the CCP a FULL financial partner in global domination. WE expect such a war to break out eventually; either in the Middle East, or South Asia where ethnic and religious differences are a two edged sword. Better that the combatants have nuke weapons where the radiation dissipates.

            It is also why O’Bummer is pivoting OUR attention to Asia and leaving the Middle East to Europe and the Regional Powers. They should shoulder that responsibility.

            All eight current members of the nuke club have neutron warheads. Israel probably does too. Only Iran does not and this is the fear for US; and Israel.

            Engage your enemy before he nukes you. 🙂

                What a priceless moment.

        • lonelonmum says:

          Do you have to use a state mandated curriculum programme? Or can you teach how you like so long as they pass the end of year test?

          Could you use an International correspondance course? Wossley Hall & Little Arthur are both OK.

          My kid has ASD & it’s his disability that makes him so well suited to being taught online. I honestly do not think it’s the ideal learning medium for everyone, not by a long shot. In fact I think I think it’s a pretty bad way to learn for most neurotypical kids under aged about 14, and even then a lot of adults hate learning this way. He’s grade 5 and we use it for 6 hours live tuition a week. (Though not all at the same grade level – he’s 8 for science and 2/3 for some aspects of literacy due to his disability). The rest of the time I source the learning materials myself.

          Our maths programme is this one It’s based on the Hungarian Curriculum which is not as messed up as the UK National Curriculum. It’s totally free to use, so no cost at all. I myself am dyslexic so have to be careful I teach maths correctly rather than via my own lil’ work arounds.

          Have you looked at the Charlotte Mason based site – Ambleside online. I defy you not to be able to use the fantastic free literacy resources there for your Literature and Language Tuition. My kid is really enjoying looking at the classics, which help expand his vocab, and often include something not found in modern texts – MORALS.

          We also belong to two weekly groups. I can offer arts and crafts & other parents have other skills to offer so as a group we pool practical subjects such as sports music, drama, bushcraft etc. This helps to ensure that our kids get to socialise and that they can do stuff we couldn’t teach in isolation. I know my kid is looking forward to doing astronomy next year. Noone is an expert at everything.

          Don’t be scared to set up a homeschool group in your area to pool resources, it’s surprisingly easy as homeschoolers are a motivated bunch. Our kids need lifeskills such as cooking too, so never think you have nothing to offer such a group.

          We have used Alpha Omega Life Pack as our curriculum for 7 years now, it is Christian based and quite excellent. At the end of each school year we administer a CAT test and our kids score in the 90 to 97 percentile so that tells me how well they are learning. NO COMMON CORE IN THIS CURRICULUM!You will receive ten workbooks for each subject and a teachers guide, anyone who wants to homeschool can be successful with this wonderful guide. Good luck.

            Outlaw claimed that expense was an issue, Christa McAuliffe Academy is very expensive unless you live in certain areas. Hands on is in my opinion the very best approach to home schooling.

        • Ignatius says:

          Ron Paul recommends the Robinson Curriculum for those on a budget. Tons of reading and self teaching. Knowledge is in books, the children just need the confidence, environment and discipline to extract the knowledge. This method doesn’t require you to be the teacher just the facilitator. Plus, the books used are classics and are not politically charged. You will need to do a lot of printing or load the books on computers or kindles..

        • Not them guys says:


          Kudos on not sending your kids to gov’t indoctrination centers. If you are looking at an “out of the box” curriculum, meaning everything you need K thru 12th grade, I would recommend checking out the Robinson curriculum at It was created by Dr. Art Robinson and his wife (now deceased), who are/were both scientists. This is the curriculum they used to homeschool their own 6 children.

          I have not personally used this curriculum, as I have pulled this and that from various curriculum to supplement my kids’ private school educations, but the Robinson curriculum gets high marks from various homeschooling blogs and is only $195 for the entire thing. It’s definitely worth checking out the website. Lots of material to read through.

          When I am looking for homeschooling books and materials, the source I turn to most is Rainbow Resources at

          Also check out Cathy Duffy Homeschool Reviews at Tons of reviews and articles there to sift through.

          Good luck to you!

          I don’t have anything helpful to tell you, except I can offer moral support. I home-schooled our two youngest and both went to college, one graduating with a 4.0 and one with a 3.9. Ohio has introduced a bill that leaves your right to home-school to the discretion of Child Services which is horrible. I would try to get copies of the “correct’ textbooks and go through them to see what is emphasized in math and the sciences, then wing it from there. It will be obvious from the fact they won’t do well in the sociological areas that they are home-schooled, but math and the hard sciences should carry them through. I think the public schools have to furnish copies of the textbooks since you’re a tax payer, but who knows what this hard-left government we’re under will say on that. Very few parents actually care what their children are taught, but those who do care aren’t going to like Common Core. I’m a college graduate but learned new things from teaching the kids. You may think you’re not the “smartest guy on the block”, but neither am I. We all learn together.

          Did you check your local area? We taught at home also and received lots of advise and wisdom from the local Homeschool group. My wife could tell you everything you want to know.

One of the resources we used was from a woman by who wrote Truth Quest History.

          I am learning more of this ‘common core’ curriculum and I do not like it. Last week my 12 year old granddaughter told me that she had a sex education class and the teacher told them how to put on 2 condoms, to be sure to check expiration dates on condoms, and make sure to check the packages for holes.. then went on to say that ”if you use two condoms one may come off inside of you and then you have to tell your parents that you are having sex”! SHE IS TWELVE YEARS OLD!..Needless to say my husband and my son (her father) were outraged..She then said that the teacher apologized for having to teach it. She said she did not want to but was forced to. Yes, if anyone here is able to homeschool by all means do so..It only gets worse from here.

          @Outlaw, I have 4 also in NYC public schools. Common core is sick and pro communist agenda to dummy up this generation. Many parents complain, many children fail the tests.We have to do our best and help at home with “other” real teachings. History of US, world history, math, reading assigned to their age groups, etc. Basically what we learned. My wife and I work overtime at home. Religious teachings also at home as the Sunday school program seems to have have changed also. Seems like babysitting. I wish you and your family the best.

        • QDUBB says:


          I as you homeschool my kids. We use My Father’s World material. The nice thing about this is that is is progressive and compact. It starts with the Creation through history of the world. Math we use Saxon math which also is progressive. The biggest thing about the public school system is the slight of hand. Education as parents is our primary objective. If they have control of our kids then they can in essence control their thoughts about the future in a pertetual state of lies. I will pray for your transition. I have 6 kids at home 4 in school ages 1-11.

      My wife and I were just talking yesterday about all the problems in the world and our preps and we have come to the conclusion that it is what it is and we are not going to fixate on it anymore.
      We are getting up in age and we have decided to have a little fun together before it all falls apart. That is not to say that we won’t have a nice garden and do our canning etc. But you can not take it with you and we have all the basics covered (Thank God). So we are going to buy a used boat to cruise around the big lakes not far from our place and do a little fishing and serious relaxing.
      This is one of the perils that are beyond our control and we are not going to sit underground and just worry all the time. Maybe this is faulty thinking but we will take it as it is and stop worrying so much. Hope I don’t get too many bad thumbs but I thought I would just put my .02 about things and share.

    • watching and waiting says:

      No. Actually the post is being realistic as you look at the physical effects of a nuclear exchange. Consider if yellow stone was to explode, similar effect, just not the radiation.

      If you live near a large city like New York, L.A. or so, yes, you are toast as is those who may live near a major military installation(s).

      The problem after the explosion and blast will be the radiation carried by the wind as we are seeing in Japan. There is no defense against that unless you live underground and properly shielded.

      The good news is that there will not be a world wide Nuclear Bombardment. We will see nuclear weapons used again but in a limited deployment. Watch the Middle East. Actually some say nuclear weapons are nearly obsolete with the advance weapons available now.

      In my personal opinion, the author of this article is incorrect in saying you cannot be prepared. You can, as long as you know where you will spend eternity, you are prepared.

      no fret, no sweat……keep prepping….still have to live…

        With all respect, that really is a dumb statement.

        Yes, people that have failed are the ones that did try because the other losers never even gave it an attempt. Much like armchair quarterbacking. They are ‘watchers’ and then pick up the crumbs afterwards.

        It is like inventors. They usually are the ones that get ‘stiffed’ because the watchers waited and let the doers make the mistakes, mainly in finances….

        Thus, you can look at the word ‘trying’ as either active or passive. I chose the active form.

    1 year BARE minimum complete food and well water, 2-3 years prefered with 5 years seed storage. Also you will need soil test kits for proper conditioning. A good sealed Root cellar with 3 feet of earth on top and hepa air filtration for a month woul be nice.

      You forgot the preps for radiation sickness and cancer.

      • gone under says:

        No. I didnt. Filter, KI and Time.

        • Calgacus says:

          Seriously a filter? For what? You understand what Potassium iodide protect you from and what it dont do?

          Time is irrelevant to radioactive chemicals but important to cancer.
          Read up man. You actually can do a few things within the home for first rounds of exposure. The article also mentions long term food supplies which would need protection too. But long term the ground and water supply will be radioactive and so will animals and all other living things, even rivers and oceans.
          Its a thinking mans game but situations could be thought out and some planning could help. When the entire climate changes though itll get extreme.
          Sprouting seeds would be a big food source.
          One issue would be medicines because people who survive but at the perimeters and other outlying zones would have immune problems I think.
          Less population so less disease but survivors would be more prone to cancers and other long term sickness. Got to know the herbals and maybe the ancient Chinese cures. I dont know this area but might be worth reading up on. Chinese been living in a shit world for almost forever and we could learn things from those in the more primitive areas.

          • gone under says:

            I have read up, and still read. Well water will not be contaminated for quite some time. Fallout is dust and can be filtered, and has a very short life. KI blocks your thyroid from absorbing I131. Where is your proof the climate will change? what info do you have on how big the Nuke exchange will be and where the other targets, other than the Large cities are? There are TOO many varables for ME to give up Like YOU have.

            • Calgacus says:

              I131 is only one of the radioactive chemicals that you would be exposed to. What about strontium or cesium?
              Understand now that your filter is for dust. At least you dont think itll protect you from radiation. Better get a pallet of cases.
              I only mentioned climate changing because of this article. A nuclear holocaust would shift everything we know like population, climate, sunlight, moonlight, and more. Compare the largest volcanic eruptions to an enormous nuclear blast and youd understand better.

                Youd understand better that a nuclear holocast doesnt mean climate change and definately wouldnt affect moonlight. There has not and will not be proof of your statement until it happens. Why would I need a pallet of filters? do you know what the particulate count is going to be for my area?

                How dense can you be. But youre the one saying I gave up and Ill die. Where did you invent that bullshit? And whats with the ignorance of the glass half full or empty. If there’s a glass and it has liquid in it, why focus on how much. Dont you want to know whats in it and whether its safe or not. Or do you always just swallow.

                There are radioactive particles that come from a nuclear blast and you want to ignore them with that half full glass, thats your option. Youll be sick and dead in a week if youre in the blast zone or the plume afterwards.

                So go on and use those dust filters. See how long you make it before you start to puke your guts out. Youll freak when the hair falls out in clumps though. By then youll be too weak to beg for mercy or a bullet.

                But the dust wont affect the sunlight or moonlight, or anything. Isnt that how you want your fairy tale to read? Heres a dose of big boy reality. Go read up on Mt Saint Helens eruption and see what happened afterwards.

                I dont give a damn whether you want to believe anything about fallout or not. You sound like a libtard. You wont survive with that attitude so whats the point.

                I find it AWFUL presumptious to decide what God accepts and does not accept…which is probably Earth’s most serious problem: When humans decide that when they think or act for God or on God’s behalf.

                You are also taking a Bible which has been re-translated a hundred times in a hundred different ways to impower YOURSELF to condemn a person who prays over a rosary…such arrogance.

                You know in your heart what is right and wrong and condemning a person because they grew up or feel strongly about a prayer that is as comforting to them as a blanket they carried as a child. You have not the authority nor the power to do that.

    A Nuclear war would be foolish. No one wins the ground is no good to grow food, water is contaminated, The best use of nuclear weapons is EMPs. This way the earth could be used for food and water so that people would survive.

    The US and the Russians have MAAD, I don’t believe we would drop H bombs on them or them on us.

    Now for some turd in the Middle East that is a different story. Iran believes this will bring on their (Savior). and Israel, Has a saying never again. So they would more than likely break out their Jericho’s. and use them to defend herself.

    India and Pakistan have come close a couple a times but with China backing Pakistan and the US backing India both nations backed down.

    Also if and when Iran gets a nuke and gives it to some terrorist group all bets are off. Just look at Syria. Some turd used poison gas on the other side. So how knows?

    If I survive the blast, and radiation, I won’t just roll over and give up I will try my best to start over again. This won’t be the 1800 it will be the STONE AGE.

    WW3 will be fought with nukes WW4 will be fought with stones! Old saying form the 60’s.

        Sure you can use the bathroom without utilities. You can flush the toilet manually by dumping a bucket of water in it. And the water can be dishwater or other used water. You need water catchment, water storage, wells, and access to rivers, creeks, lakes, or ponds.

            Waste water in Stockton Ca is gravity flow to the lift stations. Pump lift it to a discharge line higher in elevation and the gravity flow starts over again. Without power, the lift sations and sewer lines will backup in about one day. In less than 3 days, it will be in your house depending on elevation in relation to the numerous (couple dozen) lift stations. As far as the sewage treatment plant, The headworks (influent screening/grit channel room) will flood in a few hours depending on the time of day. But it will be submerged in 10 hours for sure. It has happened before when I was there. Wasnt my fault, the electrician disconnected the battery bank providing DC power and we had to Black Start the enginators that provided power for the Raw Sewage Pumps. What a shitty mess that was.

        • Archivist says:

          I have my own septic system, so I don’t have to worry about lift stations. I hope they never put in sewer lines in my area because that would bring in more development.

          My outhouse is over 80 years old and just needs a few repairs. Luckily, I have some original siding from the house that matches, even to the peeling of the paint. So I can repair it and not have to paint it. I don’t want it to look new.

        • Northern Reb says:

          Not were I live, the EPA made us put electric grinder pumps on our lines and made use hook onto a sewer line that goes to a pumping staion 1/2 mile away to pump into an other pumping station that pumps to the city sewer system 2 1/2 miles away. No eletricity, NO bath room!!

    • California Girl says:

      Joel Skousen says (yes, I’m quoting him a second time) that Russia is planning a massive nuclear first strike against the U.S. that will take out all of our major military bases. The Russians don’t care if there is nothing left to salvage here because their main objective is not the taking over of America, but the taking over of Europe. If we are destroyed we won’t be able to come to their aid and the Russians will swoop down on them and annex Europe to Russia. The communist regime never fell, it just went underground and is continuing to stockpile weapons while we are dismantling. Our government knows this. Skousen doesn’t believe the Russians will attack us yet, but will probably be ready in approximately 8 years or so.

            The only reason anyone goes to hell is for not believing in Jesus Christ.

            Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the price for every sin of every man that ever lived or will live. Therefore our sin is no longer the issue.

            The only unpardonable sin is to reject His gift of salvation.

            “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” John 3:36

              Judas is in hell and he believed in Jesus Christ.

              He is in hell for betraying Jesus Christ, not for disbelieving in Jesus.

              Pay attention to what GOD says is necessary to enter Heaven, faith and works:

              “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” James 2:20

              “Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 7:21

              “…But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17

              “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, (as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but much more now in my absence,) with fear and trembling work out your salvation” Phillipians 2:12

              What shall it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but hath not works? Shall faith be able to save him? And if a brother or sister be naked, and want daily food: And one of you say to them: Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; yet give them not those things that are necessary for the body, what shall it profit? So faith also, if it have not works, is dead in itself. But some man will say: Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without works; and I will shew thee, by works, my faith.” James 2:14-18

              “…Who will render to every man according to his works.” Romans 2:6

              “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels: and then will He render to every man according to his works.” Matthew 16:27

              “For we must all be manifested before the judgement seat of Christ, that every one may receive the proper things of the body, according as he hath done, whether it be good or evil.” 2 Corinthians 5:10

              “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing in the presence of the throne, and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged by those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Apocalypse 20:12

              See also Matthew 25:31-46 (the unrighteous are condemned for failing to do good deeds), 1 Corinthians 13:2 (faith without love is useless), Galatians 5:6 (faith without love is useless), etc., etc., etc.

              There are about 30 MORE verses that testify to the necessity of good works to enter Heaven. I will gladly supply them all.

              Not By Faith Alone: The Biblical Evidence for the Catholic Doctrine of Justification by Dr. Robert Sungenis, a former Protestant

              Not By Faith Alone is one of the first books produced in modern Catholic history to address and explain in fine detail all the relevant biblical passages concerning the Catholic view of Justification. Its over 700 pages, with extensive footnotes and appendices; examination of the original Greek and Hebrew; critique of past and present Protestant theologians; citations of major patristic Fathers, medieval theologians, Ecumenical Councils and the Catholic Catechism, make this one of the finest and most thorough books ever made on the subject….

                Catholicism as presented by JohnQ is a form of religious tyranny and control.

                Christianity is based on the grace of God and the salvation work of Christ, not the works of man.

                How many good works is enough for you to get into heaven?

                One work by Christ opened the way, and all we have to do is accept His gift. There is nothing we can do to earn it.

                And once saved, there is nothing that we can do to undo the work of God. There is no sin great enough to cause you to lose your salvation. Christ died and already paid for all of those sins.

              • John Q. Public says:

                @ Puppy Prepper

                Exactly WHO told you that what you DO in this life doesn’t matter for your salvation as long as you have “faith”?

                It certainly wasn’t the Word of God since about three dozen verses contradict you.

                Jesus Christ’s sacrifice was sufficient for all men to be saved BUT every man must cooperate with grace and DO as GOD (not me) instructed. Just as Lucifer did not cooperate (“Non serviam!”), men have the free will to not cooperate. That is not a slight on God, but on the men themselves. You have free will. Choose good. Choose God.

                Why do you void the commandments of God for the traditions of ignorant men cooperating with the devil?

                If it is “tyranny” to live the Ten Commandments, tell that to God’s face at His Judgment Seat. I doubt that you’ll get any more traction with Him than you got with me.

  17. braveheart says:

    I think it’s safe to say we will all live long enough to see a major war come along that changes everything. My prepping is continuing regardless. I’ve always believed a nuclear war would come about in my lifetime. Twice before we’ve gone right to the brink of nuclear war with the USSR, only to pull back at the last minute. The first time was the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962. I was only 5 years old at the time. I can still remember my older brother helping our Dad build a bomb shelter in our basement and stockpiling it with food, water, medical supplies, etc. That was my first contact with anything considered to be prepping. The second time was the Yom Kippur Arab-Israeli War of October 1973. Both times we were only a breath away from pushing the button. To this day I’m still grateful that nobody pushed the button either time. But the next time I don’t think we’ll be so fortunate. The loony bin has really grown since the 60s. braveheart

    • Sgt. Dale says:

      I was 8 in 1962, My father was out of the Army for 8 years at that time and he was called and told that he might get called up to train tank drivers at Fort Hood if a war started up. I remember my mother being very worried.

      In 1973 I was 19, and I was working and was told by a friend in the USMC that he might have to go to the middle east if it looks like Israel was going to loose.

      I was also told that my holding status because of my left knee that I would get drafted and have to go in. I still believe I would have been a cook or a clerk. I would have fought if that is what they wanted me to do.

      It was very close both times to Nuclear War. I remember the USSR was ramping up big time and so were we in 1972.

      If it happens, there is nothing I can to about it, but to do my best to Survive!

    • Be informed says:

      @ slingshot. I read this somewhere, that water is actually a better shield against a neutron bomb effects than even lead. I believe it was eastern europe satellite state that people were actually stacking big barrels of water to protect themselves against a neutron bomb. I know enough water will shield a person also against gamma radiation. This is why people in boats that can wash away any fallout on the boat can survive as long the water depth is about 30 feet or more. The fallout on the bottom of the lake, sea, whatever cannot pentrate a certain amount of water over it. I am not quite sure about the water in regards to the neutron bomb.

      • OK now let me see if I have this straight. After I see the nuclear war start, I mush my way up past the Eskimos and climb into the catamaran and then I… ???

      • slingshot says:


        All US Navy ship have spray nozzles that use salt water to wash away nuclear contaminants from the external surfaces of the ship. Water depth, I would think is a type of shielding against radiation. The sea would be the most survivable battlefield from which to continue the war if your warship survives the blast.
        Here is the catch, BI. If we were ever go into a nuclear war there will be no warning. Even if we had indications, the Government would NOT WARN US. Movement of Troops and War Machines. Aircraft to forward bases. Warships and Submarines leave port. Then the CIVIL DEFENCE warnings to THEIR PUBLIC. What makes us think that the press will report this. They do not report anything as all news from overseas is SERSORED! Any news we would receive on our airways would be filled with lies.

        BI .. 2″ of lead for a 1/10 factor for neutrons, 24″ of water for same effect. Or boron laced polystyrene at 1″ for an equal effect. Expensive to buy but you can make it yourself. Melt styrafoam pellets in gasoline until you get a really gooey mess and mix in borax soap powder about half and half and stir well. Pour into a wax paper lined baking sheet and let the gas evaporate. Gives you a 1/2″ thick sheet.

    Even with as many *crazy* despot dictators out there as there are…The U.S. will *not* be nuked. Why you ask?
    In any war or confrontation there are spoils that go to the victor. If another country nukes the USA or launches a full scale EMP attack…the victor would get NOTHING.

    With over 104 commercial nuclear reactors in the U.S. plus the large spent fuel pools, America (and pretty much the Northern hemisphere) would be Fukushima times 1000. You would never set foot on this continent again. Nobody, no how. It would kill all of the people in the USA for sure, but the enemy would NEVER be able to get fresh water, forests, minerals, you name it…we would be the glowing spot on the planet and everyone would run away as fast as they could.

    Are there lunatics out there crazy enough to push some red buttons? You bet. Are there governments out there that would LOVE to take over the U.S. and all her assets? No question about it. If the U.S. gets nuked then we may all die…but the ‘spoils of war’ will die with us! The irony is how people always thought that nuclear arms would destroy us…but they may actually save us….from nukes anyway.

    P.S. Our deaths won’t be nuclear at all, but biological weapon based. Leaves all resources intact, but kills all the people. 10-1 says I’m right. 🙂

    • Be informed says:

      @ socrates. That is what scares the hell out of me. Germs are something that kills like stealth attack. While your body can absorp certain radiation over a period of time, it just takes a certain amount of a pathogen just once, and you are f’ed. They still will likely take out the missile and aircraft bases because these ICBM silos and other military targets usually have safety nets all over the place for biological attacks. Primary targets will probably still be nuked on a more limited basis if sanity prevails.

    • Unless the elite few that release the bug have the antidote, germs are even more dangerous to them then being in a bunker during the nukes.

        Socrates I fear you are right.

        Many nations are now in an arms race to produce the perfect bio-genetically engineered bug that will wipe out other ethnicities, yet leave their own intact.

        There is even an African urban myth that states that this is why N.Korea has not been invaded by the west. They have a flu bug that leaves their own people intact but wipes out caucasians and negroids.

        It is the weaponisation of the virus, not the desire to heal the sick that is driving the huge push towards gene therapy. With the right tweaks to your DNA you could be made immune to a virus that will slaughter your nations Useless eaters.

        Only one country to date has threatened the “Samson Option” in relation to nuclear weapons (google it). Providing that nation can be kept in check, the more likely extinction event level risk is not war but accident as we have already seen with Chernobyl and Fukishima.

        On an individual preppers level – to avoid famine DIVERSIFY your crops. (Learn the lessons from the Irish potato famine). If you have grains, orca, potatoes and root veg on your plot, one starch may survive in the event of crop blight or disease. The author puts grains as the key famine risk (Permaculture can help here).

        Grow more than one variety and learn the lost art of seed saving. Even better learn the even more esoteric art of seed swapping to increase the varieties in your stores. It’s an easy way to get to know your neighbours today. It costs nothing to swap a few tomato seeds or a cutting from a fruit bush to a neighbour yet it boosts both your preps in the event of an emergency.

        In the event of climate change you may find that varieties that have been your “go to” choice for decades suddenly become less productive. It also means that should the worst happen to your own crop one year, there is a potential source in your neighbours to start again.

        My Grandad used to swap seeds every spring with family and friends. It’s a custom as old as time that has been deliberately encouraged to die out, along with teaching kids to say “please & thank you”.

    Upon first warning of a nuclear attack:

    1) Stay clear of all windows.

    2) Keep hands free of glasses, bottles, cigarettes, etc…

    3) Stand away from bar, tables, orchestra, equipment and furniture.

    4) Loosen necktie, unbutton coat and any other restrictive clothing.

    5) Remove glasses, empty pockets of all sharp objects such as pens, pencils, etc…

    6) Go to a low and/or protected area such as a basement or enclosed bathroom.

    7) Immediately upon seeing the brilliant flash of a nuclear explosion, bend over and place your head firmly between your legs.

    8) Kiss your ass goodbye.

    Just the US tells it’s people that a nuclear war is unsurvivable. We used to have a lot of Civil Defense shelters. Most of them people don’t even know they existed I know in Louisville Ky they had one the could hold and feed 50,000 people. But because of cost they decided to close all of them down the only people the government now thinks is worth saving is themselves as they still have their shelters. Russia can get most of the people in their cities in shelters and China is the same way. This is from a story a few years ago.

    Russia certainly seems to be in a hurry to prepare for something. RT is reporting that 5,000 new nuclear bomb shelters will be constructed in the city of Moscow by the end of 2012. Russian authorities believe that these new shelters are urgently needed because the current nuclear bomb shelters will only hold approximately half the population and are quite outdated. In addition, there are apparently very few nuclear bomb shelters for those living outside the city center at this point. Officials want virtually the entire population of Moscow to be able to reach a bomb shelter within a matter of minutes. But in this era when the “Cold War” is supposed to be over, why are 5000 nuclear bomb shelters such an urgent necessity?

        The Louisville Mega Cavern has been touted as the largest building in the state of Kentucky.
        Even though it isn’t really a building, it was used as an air raid or bomb shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis because it was very safe and relatively unknown to most people. Kentucky state officials planned for 50,000 people to be sheltered in the cavern in the event of a nuclear bomb. Doctors, lawyers, politicians and even Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame, were on the list to be housed if there was an attack. It is the largest Civil Defense shelter in the United

  32. Frank Thoughts says:

    My views on this are as follows: if such an event were to occur (and the likelihood is very high in terms of probability), then it would be proof of humanity reaching the limits of its governance capability vis-a-vis human population levels. As in, the event is unavoidable despite best efforts. One has only to look at the many well-meaning negotiations to prevent conflict that often fail, to see how goodwill does not necessarily win in the end.

    It would precipitate a global right-sizing of the world’s population to a more manageable level. This would occur very quickly in the first months. Now, here is the neat bit: that rapid die-off would then make existing and stored food supplies much more plentiful. I have an equation for this but at a certain ‘tipping point’, life would get very much better for the survivors. As an example, handsome and healthy men would be in great demand, and would have a fantastic sex life.

    The key thing is this: you need to be lucky enough to survive the initial events. You then need to have the preps in place to keep you going for six months. After that point, things will stabilize, world population will be down by a massive amount, and the survivors will benefit from abundance in order to be able to re-build the world. You can imagine the survivors would be culturally scarred by the experience, and population control and carrying capacity would be taken very seriously as concepts in any future world.

      Are you Predator or Prey ???

      The year is 2014. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct. The half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind. But the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory, the stuff of myth and legend. More than 20 years have passed since the last plane took off from the earth. Rusted railways lead into emptiness. The ether is void and the airwaves echo to a soulless howling where previously the frequencies were full of news from Tokyo, New York, Buenos Aires. Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms. Mutated by radiation, they are better adapted to the new world. Man’s time is over. A few score thousand survivors live on, not knowing whether they are the only ones left on earth. They live in the Moscow Metro – the biggest air-raid shelter ever built. It is humanity’s last refuge. Stations have become mini-statelets, their people uniting around ideas, religions, water-filters – or the simple need to repulse an enemy incursion. It is a world without a tomorrow, with no room for dreams, plans, hopes. Feelings have given way to instinct – the most important of which is survival. Survival at any price.

    Any disaster can be prepared for and surviving nuclear famine is easier than surviving an outbreak of militarized bio weaponry. You’ll need reverse osmosis water filtration, with enough supplies to last for however long necessary, also you’ll need to either set aside clean soil ahead of time or invest in hydroponic supplies and aquaculture. Aquaculture farming will allow you to raise a source of protein such as fish so long as you can keep them fed with non contaminated food. Hydroponic gardening will allow you to grow all necessary vegetative matter for food and it can be done covertly which is critical. No one else can know you have food in this situation or you’ll die trying to protect it.No matter how much radiation is outside you can still use the sun to grow if you can keep things hidden from others and never allow environmental contamination of your garden through dust storm and rain. Basically everything the indoor marijuana industry utilizes to grow, is exactly what you need to survive for some time in a post apocalyptic world.

      You were a missilier ?
      Yeh almost all the bases went on alert that night , if I remember correctly it was 3 am when It happened . I remember being rousted out of the rack and being told to grab our gear ( not in a polite manner) we had just returned from the Grenada campaign.

      We were rapidly sent to the helios on the runway no one knew what was going on all I can say the panic in the pilots voice was disturbing . In the end we ended up offshore on an assault ship out in the Atlantic. No lights on the helios flying low level over the water. . I remember it was a Friday night , good thing we were to tired to go on leave and remained on base if had been the real deal those who left would have been toast.

      Only when this was over were we told about what happened.
      It is chilling to think if this had been real.
      It was a time of incrediable tension with the Soviet Union , pershing missiles in Germany , Bresnev died being replaced with Cherencho who died and was replaced with Andropov.( Former KGB)
      there was a lot of rhetoric being thrown around in those days we half expected the Red Army to breach the Fulta Gap in Germany.

    Looks like Mac Salvo just signed a lucrative contract with the Israeli Lobby to become their newest salesman in their mentally insane, pathological, psychopathic lust to get the USA to attack Iran and start a thermo-nuclear, global-wide WW3.

    Look, let’s get ourselves fine tuned so we all can understand who it is who poses the #1 most serious threat to all plant, human, and animal life on this planet. Ready? The State of Israel, that’s who.

    The leadership of the 9-11 false flag complicit State of Israel (Netanyahu) is a mentally insane, narcissistic, psychologically unstable, dangerous, evil, deranged, bloodthirsty, wildly paranoid psychopath. This piece of human excrement – and a number of his bought and paid for and/or blackmailed American politicians (McCain, Graham, Duncan Hunter, Michele Bachmann, etc.) have been threatening to drop bombs on active nuclear power facilities in Iran – and act of mind-numbing stupidity that clearly defies any sort of reason or common sense and which demonstrates an extremely dangerous and irresponsible lack of comprehension with regards to the consequences for the entire middle east and the rest of the planet, should such an act of brainless stupidity as that ever be carried out.

    Take a look at Fukushima and the consequences of that disaster – which is contaminating and killing all sea and plant life in the entire Pacific Ocean, and which is now seeing radiation levels skyrocketing along the West Coast and across many parts of North America.

    Oh, and let us not overlook the Israeli angle on Fukushima. Strong evidence suggests that the stuxnet virus – created by Israel and by the CIA – played a role in their inability to execute an automatic, graceful shutdown on the reactors at Fukushima. To add further suspicion about Israeli complicity – it turns that the Japanese were stupid enough to give the contract for security on their nuclear facilities to an Israeli Security company – which, duh, would mean the Israelis had access to the network operations centers. So, that leaves motive, right? It also turns out that the Israelis were pissed off at Japan because Japan was giving the Iranians some technical advice on their nuclear power facility, prior to it finally coming online.

    How is stuxnet spread? Well, according to what I’ve read – the standard method is to insert an infected USB thumb drive into a computer and then stuxnet automatically uploads itself to the operating system. What might the odds be of one of those Israeli Security guards being a MOSSAD operative and having a stuxnet infected thumb drive in his pocket while he made his rounds inside the Fukushima network operations center? Higher than 50-50, I’d say.

    And, knowing the Israeli and jewish tendency towards evil and vindictiveness – I’d say the temptation to ‘get even’ with Japan for helping Iran would be a fairly difficult challenge for an Israeli to resist succumbing to, right?

    So, let’s all make sure we understand who the #1 most dangerous enemy is of all mankind on this planet, okay? It’s not the Iranians. It’s the Israelis, and particular so, for as long as they’ve got a mentally insane, blood thirsty, false flag engineering psychopath named Netanyahu in charge of their stolen piece of real estate and who has a scary number of US politicians wearing his dog collar.

    By the way. This might be a good time to recall something that Voltaire said about these people:

    “They are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race.” (Lettres de Memmius a Ciceron, 1771)

Perhaps the aspects of the Jewish religious law connected with the term ‘government of goyim’ should be re-examined, since it is an outdated term in the U.S.“

          “One of the finest things ever done by the mob was the Crucifixion of Christ. Intellectually it was a splendid gesture. But trust the mob to bungle the job. If I’d had charge of executing Christ, I’d have handled it differently. You see, what I’d have done was had him shipped to Rome and fed him to the lions. They could never have made a savior out of mincemeat!”

          John Q Public was CORRECT EH!!

          “As for the Goyim… Zalman’s attitude (was): “Gentile souls are of a completely different and inferior order. They are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.”…If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA…” “…If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value,” he explained. “There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.”

    Fallout does not “poison” anything. It will stop radiating.

    Nuclear Winter was a BS study made up by Carl Sagan and was debunked when the model was finally shown, It had fires burning forever.

    Most nukes now are under 1 MT.

    Less than 1% of the earth’s surface would be targeted in a full scale nuclear war.

    Nuclear War is easy to survive, if you prepare for it.

  47. JohnFornaro says:

    Wait a sec.

    We already had a “limited” nuclear war back in the ’40’s. Not much weather changed.

    Until the authors of the article define what it means to have a “limited” nuclear war, one can draw no substantive conclusions from the article.

    In addition, Carl Satan and other scientificists created a computer model for nuclear winter back in the seventies, and preached gloom and doom. Subsequent research, based on a better understanding of global weather patterns discovered that their model was erroneous.

    Now, one can choose to falsely assert that therefore, there is no problem whatsoever with any kind of “limited” nuclear war. Personally, I don’t care what choices people make. However, if analysis is shallow and emotion based, it will be inaccurate. No doubt in my mind, that if the governments of the world, sectioned the world off in a grid and dropped a bomb simultaneously at each point, using their entire arsenals, there would be global weather effects. Perhaps there is a wierd definition that this would be a “limited” nuclear strike; limited to every bomb in the closet.

    It is more probably the case that the world will do fine after a “limited” nuclear war, if those “limitations” are met. I don’t know how many, or how few nukes would change the global weather patterns. Nor do I know already what the fanatics in industry, government and religion might demand, or try to orchestrate, to cause such a hypothetical limited nuclear war.

    Yeah, depending on how “they” play out the scenario, a lot of people will die. The northern hemisphere would probably be worse off, in the sense of how much dust was in the air, than the southern hemisphere.

    I’m sure people on this forum have seen the October 2013 articles from the chinese regarding how many Americans they plan to kill with a limited nuclear strike. I noticed in some of the diagrams about the fallout areas, that the breadbasket of our country was not proposed to be hit quite so hard. This leads me to suggest that their endgame, after the dust settles, so to speak, is to increase their agricultural acreage, if they can.

    While the chinese government views religion with a skeptical eye, they are in pragmatic funtional agreement with other religions, that the Buddheo-Christian ethic should be removed from the face of the Earth. Fortunately, for their atheistic schemes, many putative American Christians, are happy to support the chinese economy, and thus their goals, by purchasing as much as possible from the well known big box stores which owe their profitability to the communist work ethic.

    Now, one can choose to falsely assert that therefore, the chinese government is the only bad guy on the global stage, and that they completely kowtow to the putative zionistic dystopian futures sketched out by other participants on the shtfplan forum. However, if analysis is shallow and emotion based, it will be inaccurate.

    On the other hand, the shallow analysis should sell more seed vaults. Hakuna metata.

    We’re all eventually going to be recycled back into that from which we were created. Agreed? We can prep until the cows come home and at the very best it may only slightly delay the inevitable mere nanoseconds if you consider our how brief our occupation of this planet has been comparatively. Unfortunately, I think, our children won’t have the “pleasure” of growing up in the mirage that we now fondly look back upon as being the best time of our lives. Our, and most if not all, previous generations have been deceived on a monumental scale by manipulators of laws or religion who have exploited our ignorance. Thankfully, the internet has helped pull the curtains back and, for many, has helped remove the blinders that have kept us in the dark. But, as much as its helped shed light on the past its also provided a way for us to glimpse the future as never before. I believe there’s no such thing as a free lunch or a free education. What I see is that our children are going to be used to pay for our generation’s collective education. Prepping for “our children’s sake” is a delusion. For one, are people really arrogant enough to think that they’ll be able to do enough to enable their children to survive any of the potential catastrophes that await us? I don’t think so. That’s a fantasy (as parents its impossible to not want to protect your kids, I know.)but at best its a false hope more grounded in emotions than reality. And, even if they do survive, is that the best possible outcome for them? Is surviving along with a few other glow in the dark zombies really the kind of future we want for them? Or for them to become slaves to whatever country or species happens to come out on top after an apocalypse? Nah. I think being recycled is preferable to most scenarios that are likely to unfold. So I’m trying real hard to enjoy each hour of each day that I have left on this planet but I’m not having much luck. The banksters, politicians, educators, police, courts and the legions of toxic people that I’ve had to deal with have all played a part in removing what little joy I used to get from being alive. Hopefully not everyone feels this way. I kind of think it means I’ve finally grown up. No wonder I had been trying to avoid that for so long. The idiot in this video is a perfect example of the kind of trash that has been feeding us and our kids bullshit for way too long.

        Sadly, payback is one of the few things I look forward to. I hope I’m fortunate enough to give each one on my list the attention they deserve.

        You know, it’s gotten to the point where when I hear of a shooting, like the latest one in Colorado for example, I have to guard against immediately siding with the shooter and thinking, “Man, the teacher that kid was going after must’ve been a real asshole.” Especially when I hear multiple classmates comment on how nice they say the kid was etc yet none of them say anything like that about the teacher.

        Hmmm…Why is that?

        I’ve run across many teachers and coaches that abuse their authority and get away with it year after year. Not saying this guy was guilty of that but there’s always at least 2 opposing sides in a conflict and it’s possible we only hear one side in a case like that.

        I do feel bad for the young lady that tried to interfere and was seriously injured. I hope she recovers. One thing for sure though if she pulls through…she won’t do that again.

        • Emily says:

          @ the_isle – I was exposed to some real a$$holes teachers growing up. Esp. in grades 6th through 9th. I am so glad I don’t have any kids. If I did, they would all be home schooled. I went back after college to look at my school records, due to the Freedom of Privacy Act.
          I slightly shook up some of the higher ups by doing so. I like to think the pendulum has swung the other way today. That the teachers that abuse their authority will be reported and held accountable. I too, look forward to payback. I don’t get mad, I get even. It may take me months or years, but I eventually get my revenge on the a$$holes. Nothing violent or extreme though. I now limit set big time, and few enter my inner circle.

            I’ve had three kids go through the public school system and onto finish college. I’ve got another one just starting in first grade who I will pull from the public system and either home school or possibly charter or private if I’m ever able to get her back from those who stole her from me 4 yrs ago. Without a doubt grades 6-9 bring out the worst in both teachers and students for a variety of reasons but it seems some of the middle school teachers are no more mature than the kids in their classrooms regardless how long they’ve been teaching. I’ve never thought of requesting my records. I doubt I could find a complete record because I attended 12 different schools in 3 different states from grades 6-12. If I could it would no doubt be entertaining. I wish I could’ve saved all the wooden paddles I was hit with as souveneirs to remind me how much fun learning was…

            • Emily says:

              @ Anonymous – Jesus, wooden paddles? To me, that is child abuse. Those Bastards.

              When I went back and looked at my school records, they were pretty inconsequential. Except one a$$hole teacher put down my math skills. Perhaps if I had a better teacher, I would have done better in math. Science I was o.k. in. I did go to college for 4 years and graduated cum laude.

              Fate has a way, of coming round. I was a phlebotomist at the red cross, and the a$$hole teacher who slammed me and my math skills came in to donate blood. Guess who got him? Me. I was barely civil, and jabbed him about some things, one of them being in the winter, he would keep the room temperature at something ridiculous such as 50 degrees. (exaggerating) But, it was damn cold. He said he did it to keep us awake and alert.

              I also remember he went to China. He came to class with China silks, and bragged how he bought them for practically nothing. I sat there in the classroom and was pissed. He had a perfect opportunity to teach us about China’s history (I love History), architecture (I love architecture), and their culture. I was in 6th grade at the time, and I had the maturity to think this back then. I asked him why he kept the room so cold during his blood donation , and he gave me some lame excuse that the school did it. Liar.
              I would have brought up the China incident, but I had to be careful. If I was a real vindictive little bitch to him, it would have cost me my job.

              My father always said we as a family did not become ‘middle class’ until he was in his 40’s.
              I remember going to school, 6 or 7th grade.
              My shoe size is a 6 or 6 1/2. I remember a teacher making fun of my shoes. In front of other children.
              They made my feet look bigger than they were, I guess they were clodhoppers back then. I was hurt, embarrassed, and angry. Yeah, I got over it.
              My comfort is these a$$hole teachers are now dead, or old and decrepit and half-dead.

              My mother, who is now deceased, went to her High School Reunion many years ago. The boys, now men, gave the teacher a ‘gift.’ It was a wooden paddle.

              Thank you for your post. You are right, and have a point about grades 6th -9th.

              I think tenure should be eliminated from teachers.
              I think teachers should, every year, be tested for their
              knowledge of the subjects they are teaching, and have evaluations on their asses from parents and students alike.
              I hope you get your little first grader back.
              Don’t give up. You are a good and caring guy, and I wish
              you the best.

I know that most nuke strikes will be air bursts. The climate changes will occur from the air literally being blasted even with above ground blasts. Nuclear winter like a super volcano? ONLY if they ground burst everything. The Day After movie was very realistic because the area was east of many hundreds of silos that would be ground bursted. Threads exaggerated the debris in the air, but not the ozone destruction. Recover yes, slow yes. By the way have you made a Kearny homemade fallout meter like described in the book? These things work.

      I wonder if a tectonic approach to an elective nuclear war would “accidentally” loosen the plates such that all heck would break loose. In other words, they aim at particular fault lines. Perhaps BeInformed could chime in on that theoretical possibility.

    Once again, the “experts” on fear mongering are the dual citizens domiciled in the District of Columbia.

    How do these experts continue to act to subvert foreign policy in Israel’s favor?

    What happened to the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938? It requires individuals acting on behalf of a foreign country to register with the Justice Dept. and reveal their sources of funds.

    If this law was enforced, I wonder how many congressmen would be in that line to reveal their Israeli funding?

    The last president to try to enforce this by having Israeli lobbyists register as foreign agents was JFK, who tried to force the predecessors to AIPAC (called the American Zionist Council) to comply with that law. What happened to him?

    All these congressmen acting in behalf of Israel should be impeached.

    Of course, that will never happen since impeachment has to start in the House of Reps. where most of the traitors reside.

    The corporate government in DC, run by their Zionist foreign policy lackeys, is the largest terrorist organization on the face of the earth.

    I’m old enough to remember the so called experts predicting nuclear war for the summer of 1974; when I was in Junior High. Of course; it never happened. IF the United States is attacked; the smart and efficient means of attack would be to detonate a nuke about 8 miles over Kansas to literally bathe the entire country in an EMP wave. This would make sense. Disable the entire country; while killing 90% of Americans within a year. The worry for me is MISCALCULATION on either side; which would leave this country a burned out husk of its former self.

  60. Good article Mac know this. Israel and South Africa entered into a nuclear test treasty about 1976. A nuclear warhead was detonated in either 1978 or 79. It was tested on the Atlantic side of South Africa and was a success. I do not know if South Africa produced any weapons after the initial test but Israel was given enough material, by the US to produce three hundred nuclear devices. Since all nuclear material has a radioactive signature we can trace the material to Oakridge Tennessee and Rocky Flats Nuclear Arsenal just outside of Golden Colorado. So much material was missing from Rocky Flats it was shut down. Like Oakridge it is a nuclear nightmare. But, yes, we know for sure that Israel has between 150 to 300 nuclear warheads in the kiloton and multiple kiloton range.
    Have a good one.

    • Be informed says:

      @ Country Codger. Something as important in regards to Israel is that they have the means to successfully deliver those warheads to far and away targets. They have subs and intermediate ballistic missiles with ranges that reached a shorter range ICBM. Having nukes is a deterrent, but being able to hit your enemy makes you strategic. This is why China has put so much money and effort into mobile based ICBM’s that are much harder to target, long range submarines, and into long range nuclear bombers like the U.S. and Russia have.

  62. MM2Nuke says:

    I would prefer a standard nuclear attack to an EMP attack since the country can survive losing up to 100 cities. EMP clobbers the whole continent and there wouldn’t be but 1 in 20 to survive after the first year. That’s with no fallout from an attack of just 3 bombs in orbit over the USA.
    I was a nuke mechanic for the navy for 6 years and did research on emp effects for upper level govt before discharge so I have a good idea of what to expect from both types of attack. The book “one second after” covers the basics of an emp but is a bit optimistic on the total breakdown of society. It would be much worse.

    • Jack Hammer says:

      I think you are correct. Life after an EMP would be hell on Earth. The government has hardened bunkers and vehicles and would hunker down for the first 12 to 18 months while the people kill each other over every scrap of food. Then the government comes out of hiding and rounds up the survivors and kills some and uses others for rebuilding. It won’t be pretty.

      • old guy says:

        Those bunkers could and should be sealed up from the outside. In certain that there is a air intake someplace?Nothing made by man is 100% unbreachable. Those bunkers need to be their toombs?

    Unprepared people will be as bad as the actual physical damage. 6 years as a nuke snipe… good man.

  64. Beano says:

    This was predicted over thousands of years ago by Yashua.

    Some kind of disaster that would KILL EVERY living thing. Who knows if it is one disaster causing another and leading to another and the combination compounds everything to a point of what Yashua said?

  65. MM2Nuke says:

    Did my last 6 months jockeying a desk in shipyard, got broken up in an accident so I didn’t stay in for 20 like I had planned. Did wargame stuff for “stars” and managed my carriers overhaul for the nuke side repairs. Learned a lot and had some fun… now I’m just a factory worker and full time dad. God bless and keep prepping.

  66. Kevin2 says:

    I’m here concerned about an economic collapse with the resulting domestic social implications and we have WWIII with Hydrogen Bombs.

    I give up. I have neither the ability due to health or geographic location to bother to live in a Mad Max environment.

    Have no more use for them. EMP and all that.

  68. Be informed says:

    @ sixpack and JRS. Please read as you might have misunderstood what I meant.

    Ever see the cutesy little Japanese women running aorund with their fire extinguishers every Sept. 1 in Japan to show they are ready for the next meag quake to hit Toyko? ANY prepping is to be commended. There is also the problem that someone THINKS they are ready because they have a little vegetable garden, a box of food, a couple of cases of water, a 24 roll pack of toilet paper, a baseball bat for protection, a flashlight, an extra pack of batteries, etc. This is a bad misconception that a person “FEELS” that they are ready for anything.

    I define cutesy prepping as someone that hardly takes it to the second, third, or fourth level up. Novice prepper is even a better term. Someone that puts away a 3 day’s worth of supplies will not immediately die when it hits. They must not though expect to make it last much longer. They are prepping to the raw minimum and that is not going to do them any good if the disaster lasts any amount of time. Something is better than nothing, but more is better than little. If you can get someone to expand above the cutesy level of prepping, you have probably saved the person. There is a foundation there, and there is a lot more hope for someone that preps even a little. Still like training a bunch of little “cute” Japanese women running around giggling once a year spraying out midget fires, is not really going to do much good when hard core hits. Even a moderate disaster would be a problem for them. Cutesy should be thought of as someone really not taking a critical situation present and future seriously enough.

    • RickInOregon says:

      BI, some of us don’t prep for the worst cast or for every possible SHTF. We pick and chose our priorities and judge if we have the resources to address them.

      Solar panels or an AR, for me it’s solar panels, a picture pump or body armor, for me it’s a picture pump, a case of beans or a case of canning jars, for me it’s canning jars, build an above ground root cellar or build a fall out shelter, for me it’s a root cellar, A reloader or a pressure canner, bullets or canning lids, a book on how to survive a nuke blast or a book on how to make cheese and the list goes on and I always chose what will make me more self sufficient and independent.

      Because of the irresponsible fiscal policies of the government, I fear more the lost value of our currency than I do a nuke war. I’m spending my time and resources to be able to live a frugal, healthy and fulfilling life when my savings have little value because of inflation, confiscation or a new currency.

      • sixpack says:

        Amen, RIO. My sentiments exactly, although I do try to stock as many all-out-shtf items as I can afford.

        I HAVE radiation detection/mitigation equipment.

        I HAVE several backup power systems for lighting, cooking and refrigeration.

        I HAVE more than one method of personal/home protection.

        I HAVE several bio-hazard defense items.

        I HAVE tools and materials for repairing damage to my dwelling structure.

        I HAVE enough equipment to bug out to anywhere but here.

        I consider myself a “serious” prepper, even though I can’t afford thousands of dollars for massive gennies, or to own an alternate BOL.

        It isn’t just the ‘stuff’ I have, that makes me a serious prepper…it’s my will and determination to survive. That’s one thing I’m serious about.

      • JohnFornaro says:

        Good job, Rick in Oregon. You have to prioritize. One of my interests is technology. I have quite a library from the 1890’s thru the 1970’s regarding how to rebuild technology. Yeah, it could be easily burned, with my dead body on top of the pyre. REmember that agriculture is a type of technology.

        Here’s a great video of a guy building a vacuum tube by hand:

        Given a stable society on the other side, human society could be rebuilt.

  69. Money Supply says:

    I was in a meeting one day in corporate America and some jerk was busting on me on the doomsday prepper shit. Hey, I have a shotgun and a few buckets of beans.

    After much ridicule. I said the following.

    What if one day you came home from work and world war three started…and it was Nuclear. Even if the blast did not kill you…then the crops will have to grow in the radiation dust. If you did not prep…you just killed your kids because you were too busy and too ignorant to realize the world if filled with evil people. Congratulations… because of your lack of poor planning…your children will die off and mine will go on.

    Pretty quiet room after that.

    Don’t plan on growing shit.

    My guess..the elite are planning plant funguses and blame it on nature to “thin the herd” via global crop failures.

    Just so you know elite… if you engineer this…The people of the world will all bust into your bunkers…drag you out and eat you for lunch. Literally.

    AH…the sweet meat of the elite. hey that rhymes. ha ha.

  71. While “book knowledge” is useful information, real “hands on” experience is more important in the catastrophe facing all of us.

    I fear many on here think their book smarts will save them…WRONG.

    If you never cleaned your nails before dinner with your pocket knife or took a needle to that new blister you get before a callous wears in…

    If you never butchered a chicken or hog to eat…

    If you never cut or split your own wood to heat your house in the winter…

    If you can’t grow and preserve most of your own food…

    Yes that includes canning, salting, smoking or drying it.

    Well then, you’re just talking shit and you will starve with the rest of the so-called sheeple…because, in fact, you yourself are a “sheeple”.

    There are only a handful of people that I have seen on this board that are growing and keeping their own food. It’s not an easy task and time is running out for all of us.

    Get out into the yellow light and away from the blue light and get your hands dirty…GET CRACKIN’.

    • Be informed says:

      @ JRS. Excellent points. Even when people repair items, they should try to using hand tools only. Try to find spare parts around the house to fix it rather than run to the hardware store and spend money on the part and the gas to get there. Hands on experience is so important, epecially when you can use your mind to figure something out. Like always puncturing a blister on the side of it and draining it and leaving the excess skin to heal itself over the weak point. Mental training is crucial wouldn’t you say also. The more you can solve problems on your own the better.

    • JohnFornaro says:

      JRS: One small disagreement. I’ve started to NOT puncture blisters with a needle. My experience is that they heal faster.

    • old guy says:

      We have been at it for many years. And its very difficult to grow even 50% of your own food. We try and have as many completely home grow meals as we can and only manage that feat 3 or 4 days per week. This year the erratic climate & weather was a big negative factor. Nine days of rain as the wrong time ruined the tomatos and made the field corn produce a bumper crop. We have decided a greenhouse is a necessity if we are ever going to become even at least 90% self reliant. Today its raining record amounts and the river has flooded. Its likely to be another record 100 year flood. We seem to get one every 5 years now.

  74. James says:

    The Bible says in Revelations 9:18 that 1/3 of mankind will be killed in the last days. So, these nuclear weapons will probably be doing the destruction.

  75. JAH666 says:

    This article is just a tad alarmist…

    The countries that were developing and testing nuclear and thermo-nuclear weapons from the 1940’s to the 1960’s detonated hundreds of devices of all sizes. These devices were exploded on the ground, under the ground, in the air and under the water. I’m no advocate of these things, and (and as seen in Japan with very low-yield devices) using them against population centers is horrific in the extreme, but it has been shown that the devices detonated in the period from the 40’s to the 60’s had little to no global long-term effects.

    There would be extreme effects in the immediate aftermath to midterm in the event of a regional nuclear exchange, but they would be confined to that region. If this weren’t so then Hiroshima and Nagasaki would be wastelands to this day.

    It would take a full force mutual exchange between superpowers, like what could have occurred between the US and the USSR, involving hundreds to thousands of simultaneous detonations to cause world-wide effects.

    The truth of the matter with regards to nuclear weapons is, that after having them for over half a century we still don’t really know what they will do if used indiscriminately.

    It really is a shame though that they are so destructive, because the detonations of nuclear weapons is truly magnificent and awe inspiringly beautiful. Just rent a copy of “Trinity and Beyond: the Atomic Bomb Movie” and watch with an open mind.

    i just turned 60 and have been hearing this for about 45 yrs
    if the USA and Russia unload on each other its over but i seriously doubt Putin is suicidal. but NK Pakistan, Iran and to a lesser extent India it would be a regional mess and will effect the rest of the world but odds are we will survive although the affected country’s will have far fewer people and will suffer devastation. what is scarier some of the extreme greens ex watson of whale watchers would be delighted since he and many others think the earth would be better with only 500k people there the people i fear. remember the BOMB has been here around 70 yrs and was only used 2x rational men know not to use it no other weapon has been reserved that long in history

  78. buttcrackofdoom says: what a fuster-cluck this is turning out to be! after a few of these stories, i gotta start believing there’s sumthin’ up with the pacific. sooner or later JAPANDEMONIUM WILL ensue! PFFTT! nukes from russia or china? hell, we ALREADY been nuked!

  79. Leon Kennedy says:

    Surviving is not easy now days. One should be known and learned how to do this perfectly. I know a source and people should Click for more tips.

  80. Mr. T says:

    I agree with most that say you can not count the prepper/survivalist out automatically. However, if we ever experienced a full nuclear exchange between the USA and Russia or China you would realistically be looking at 80 to 90 percent of the population of this country being dead with in the first 12 to 18 months. It’s not necessarily the blast that will kill most people it will be the fallout and the food contamination and water contamination that will kill most people. Whatever resources might remain unspoiled will be fought over in “to the death” scenarios. When we nuked Japan, those bombs were “babies” to what the USA, Russia, China have stocked in their arsenals. The damage done will cripple almost all population centers and crucial infrastructure to the point where all countries would be back in the stone ages. I know preppers and survivalists are hearty folk, but just look at what Fukashima did in Japan…we have not yet seen what it will do to the rest of the world; cancer rates in this country will undoubtedly increase due to one of the three reactors spewing out most of the radioactive material. The world has approximately 437 active nuclear plants right now; how many of those will be damaged to the point of meltdowns? Think of the damage they will create. If we ever go full scale exchange…it literally will be the end of the world as we know it! Will there be survivors…there always are. For them it will be one tough, dark, miserable fucking existence….that you can bet the farm on!
