Electromagnetic Pulse terrorists attacks

This is a topic I've read a little about but still feel very lacking in understanding. EMPs (Electro Magnetic Pulse) seem to be intense power surges from explosions which could devastate our electronic systems. Everything from computers, to car engines, to radios, and possibly even household wiring could be affected. This all sounds so sci-fi, but a fair amount of evidence exists.

Someone sent me this link which has numerous articles listed on the same page, all discussing this issue. It is really quite a comprehensive catalog of info.

there were also articles i saw last week, regarding "coronal mass ejections" (CMEs) from the sun. these may cause problems similar to EMPs.

since most of my flashlights are LEDs now, i've wondered how they might be affected by EMP. (i think i'll invest in a couple more conventional mag lights and stock up on incandescent flashlight bulbs just in case)

since these EMP effects are a possibility it would be prudent to prepare for operations under ninetenth century lighting and communications conditions. (although i personally feel it's more likely that they can bomb us back to the 1950s or 1920s as opposed to the 1850s)

all you preppers out there should have working bicycles, and extra wicks for your oil lamps. we may end up sending messages back and forth by bicycle courier, and reading them by candlelight.

Hey, that's why I have an old non-computerized car...just keep an extra starter solenoid and fuses (like in war of the worlds) in case they get shorted by manmade or natural EMP.
