EMP is one of the threats on my Prepper Threat Analysis list. It has been warned about for many years but little has actually been done (military equipment EMP hardening, to a degree). This EO may (perhaps, maybe) result in action to protect civilian electrical/electronic installations. https://www.theepochtimes.com/presi...rotect-americans-from-emp-attack_2855396.html Keep on eye on this because it could also become a major cash cow for those who are willing to back it. Watch for changes in stance by either political party and by the "reactionary" groups who will join any campaign if they see an advantage to their message. This is NOT a quick-fix problem, nor will it be cheap to implement. Expect it to take months/years in planning alone. Until actual changes in the hardware have happened, do your own Prepping via the following: Backup hardware for your computer equipment, kept in Faraday cage. Backup copies of your current software, kept in Faraday cage, particularly if you use USB sticks. DVD disks may (perhaps, maybe) be slightly less vulnerable. Assume that your solar electric arrays will NOT survive (they might) and have backups in Faraday cage. Backup electrical meters (voltmeters, ammeters) in Faraday cage. Your battery array needs, at least, arc suppression on all lines leading. A separate, Faraday shielded battery box is better. Generators are vulnerable to EMP. They need arc suppression on all wires and a Faraday cage generator room/box.
