    How To Survive A Nuclear Event



    Snippit:

    In this article, I will examine some of the disaster situations commonly given doom status. With a little insight and research, we can prepare to overcome such seemingly intractable calamities.

    First, we must recognize the very real threat of a nuclear-related incident on American soil. Though the immediate dangers of the Cold War appear to have subsided and though globalists seem to be more interested in keeping most of the world intact for themselves rather than ruling over a radioactive dust heap, I suspect that we will within our lifetimes see at the very least a limited thermonuclear event. Beyond the predictable scenario of false flag, the United States is growing increasingly at odds with known nuclear powers, including Russia, China and North Korea. Just last week, Russian officials openly indicated they have no qualms over the use of nukes in response to a conventional threat.

    We’ve all seen movies and read books of nuclear holocaust, and the utter despair it could conceivably initiate. Of course, nuclear attack should not be underestimated — far from it. However, rarely in these films or fictional accounts do you see characters who prepared beforehand, who had readied themselves physically and psychologically for the aftermath. This is a symptom of the common assumption that one “cannot survive” nuclear attack and that, even if he did, he would be better off dead. I tend to disagree, and so do the U.S. Army and the Russian military, which have undergone extensive planning and written detailed manuals for soldiers on nuclear survival.

    With the correct mindset and the right knowledge, any catastrophe is survivable, including “the bomb.” Futility arises only when a man decides for himself that he is not capable. To endure, one must make himself a master of his circumstances, rather than a slave to them. This concept is at the heart of all survival.

    Black Blade: Fairly good article. Probably won't be necessary to put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye - if you prep and know what to dao after a nuclear exchange.

    Hell, all they told us we had to do to survive the bomb when I was in grade school was to sit Indian style under our desk holding our notebook on the back of our neck.

    Once I had kids I gave them all notebooks and said you will need this if we are ever attacked by nukes!

    Survive a nuclear event in your AO ??? To what end,,you'll never make it out alive anyhow,,unless you stay till the radiation subsides,,myself I don't expect to live for thousands , or even hundreds of years till that happens.

    What's the point? If it ever happens you'll more than likely not have time to bend over and kiss your ass good bye! Unless your out in "East Bumb Fuck" someplace. Then you'd better be a young-in and have years worth of supplies to ever be able to make it in the "brave new world".

    I sure won't fret over it that much, at least not to the point that I'll spend every spare cent and moment preparing for it. I'll just worry about life's normal challenges and what ever weather related things happen. That's enough to prepare for IMO.

    I remember those drills we had back in Elementary school. Draw the blinds to prevent flying glass. get under the desk. In Commie land (MD) they had us sit Indian style and put our head down between our knees (presumably to kiss our ass goodbye)and cover the back of our neck with our hand.to presumably prevent spinal injuries from flying debris (so it would only screw up you hand).

    Ah Golden days they were.

    One day, many years ago I asked my son and Daughter , do they still do that?

    No , was the answer.

    However they do teach them firearms and the NRA are bad. The Constitution is old and outdated, and Obama is the Messiah, and being ghey is good, so there is that.

    That's why I'm a big fan of homeschooling now.

    I always figured that in the grand scheme of things, that I would much rather die in the initial blast than suffer horribly from radiation sickness and die anywhere from a few days to a few months later from that.

    To me the entire survive a nucear attack thing falls right in line with twa2471 mindset. Even if I had the resources I doubt I would invest in the necessary shelter and food stores needed to survive a nuclear attack. My preparing tends to be more geared towards what I see as a more realistic and survivable events than a nuclear missile landing in my town.

    1970's army training was to lay on your weapon head in direction of blast after blast wave went over get up and charge. I remember thinking charge what?

    Yup ,,,the whole topic is a bit funny IMO. I suppose if I ever won the lottery it would be cool to have a underground bunker like someone put up a picture of here. Remember the one I had mentioned in Essex County NY, someone put up the realtor add for. Can't seem to find it right now,,damn there's allot of stuff in the archives!!!

    It's kinda funny, when I'd considered buying it back in the mid 70's for 32K, it was just because of the land, in place utilities and cheap cost. I never considered it because of the "Shelter " aspect of it. What was that guy asking for a 50% partnership in it,, over a Mill I think was,,,,guess I should have bought it!!!

    Hell just the stuff that was in it alone would be worth well over what my initial investment would have been.

    Oh Well,, I'll just go up in vapor with the rest of ya!!!

    No Biggie!

    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 1.25C 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.”

    Fool.com 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.

    Dr. Edward Teller, acknowledged as the "Father" of the hydrogen bomb, always maintained it was a survivable event for many if the government would change it's attitude and provide some "guidance and supplies". His thoughts are in a book by an Oak Ridge guy, Cressen Kearny, Nuclear War Survival Skills.

    Excellent book. Changed my outlook entirely.
