The Clarion Project will be hosting a live, online “webinar” Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 1 pm EST (10 am PST) with Dr. Peter Vincent Pry titled “Have Concessions to Iran Made an EMP Attack More Likely?”
Dr. Pry is the executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security for the Congressional Caucus on Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and director of the United States Nuclear Strategy Forum, an advisory body to Congress on policies to counter weapons of mass destruction.
An EMP, a burst of electromagnetic energy caused by either solar activity or a nuclear device detonated more than 30 kilometers (18 miles) above the atmosphere, has the capacity to destroy America's and Canada's electric grid.
Dr. Pry will be discussing topics including:
- What is an EMP?
- Vulnerability of the U.S. power grid
- Natural occurrences of EMPs by solar flares
- EMPs caused by high altitude nuclear explosions
- What the government can do to mitigate the dangers
