Awareness of and Taking Action against a Furtive Killer

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Black Mountain, NC, September 18, 2009 - It would take a nuclear weapon, detonated miles above the Earth’s atmosphere, to knock out the country’s entire electrical power grid.  It would not instantly kill millions the way a direct hit by a nuclear weapon would, but death would be more insidious – people would die slowl y from lack of water, food, emergency services, or violence after the breakdown of law and order.


The same destruction after an EMP attack as outlined in Dr. Forstchen’s chilling book One Second After (TOR/Forge Books) could also conceivably come from solar flare or geomagnetic activity.  These facts align with frightening new predictions from an international panel of experts led by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) who now predict a potentially catastrophic peak of solar geomagnetic activity in May of 2013. 


Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, sides with Forstchen and the NASA/ NOASS report, urging that we take this cautionary tale very seriously.  Gingrich presented the information outlined in One Second After to the American/Israel Public Affairs Committee at its annual policy conference.  After reading Dr. Forstchen’s well-researched book, the head of the Missile Defense Agency and the head of the Congressional Investigative Committee on EMP pushed for preventative action.

Dr. Forstchen’s book outlines necessary precautions to ensure we have a fighting chance to survive. 

Some of these are: 

- Stockpiling safe water, canned food, medication, and first-aid supplies.  
-  A plan to handle climate survival with wood stoves, a wood supply, propane-fueled lamps, kerosene space heaters, candles and matches.
How to set up a portable toilet with household items.
How to protect yourself and your family when law and order breaks down.
-  Having a plan for security – the best chance of survival is to act swiftly.

W.E.B. Griffin, author of 36 best-selling military and detective novels: "The only thing more terrifying than this masterfully crafted story is the possibility of it actually happening - and not a damn thing being done to protect us."
Publisher's Weekly: "Fans of such classics as Alas, Babylon and On The Beach will have a good time as Forstchen tackles the obvious and some not-so-obvious questions the apocalypse tends to raise."
Whitney Scott (Booklist): "In a Norman Rockwell town in North Carolina military action by unlikely people becomes the norm in Forstchen's sad, riveting, cautionary tale, the premise of which Newt Gingrich's foreword says is completely possible."
