Novus Ordo, I have read that some well made solar panels will work after an EMP. Not 100% sure on that but it is interesting to look into this. I also read that the airplanes will not fall or stop working all together and many will be able to land but will not work that well after they land. Not sure on that but planes are always getting hit by lighting.
Well the point is many will die so we need to prepare. The first year is the one were many would die so we need to store enough food and water for at less one year.
