      The earth barely missed taking a massive solar punch in the teeth two
      weeks ago, an "electromagnetic pulse" so big that it could have knocked
      out power, cars and iPhones throughout the United States.

      Two EMP experts told Secrets that the EMP flashed through earth's
      typical orbit around the sun about two weeks before the planet got there.

      "The world escaped an EMP catastrophe," said Henry Cooper, who led
      strategic arms negotiations with the Soviet Union under President
      Reagan, and who now heads High Frontier, a group pushing for missile

      "There had been a near miss about two weeks ago, a Carrington-class
      coronal mass ejection crossed the orbit of the Earth and basically just
      missed us," said Peter Vincent Pry, who served on the Congressional EMP
      Threat Commission from 2001-2008. He was referring to the 1859 EMP named
      after astronomer Richard Carrington that melted telegraph lines in
      Europe and North America.

      "Basically this is a Russian roulette thing," added Pry. "We narrowly
      escape from a Carrington-class disaster."

      Pry, Cooper, and former CIA Director James Woolsey have been recently
      demanding that Washington prepare the nation's electric grid for an EMP,
      either from the sun or an enemy's nuclear bomb. They want the
      2,000-3,000 transformers in the grid protected with a high-tech metal
      box and spares ready to rebuild the system. Woolsey said knocking out
      just 20 would shut down electricity to parts of the nation "for a long

      But Washington is giving them the cold shoulder, especially the
      administration. Woolsey told Secrets that some in Congress are
      interested in the issue, but the administration is just in the
      "beginnings" of paying attention.

      Woolsey said that Air Force One and aircraft used by the Strategic Air
      Command to control nuclear-tipped missiles are hardened against an EMP.

      The EMP effect is not rare. One occurred in Canada in 1989, knocking out
      Quebec's electric transmission system. And North Korea is reportedly
      testing a device to attack the U.S. with an EMP attack.

      The trio appeared at an event in Washington this week, but Pry said
      getting the nation's leaders interested in the issue is difficult and
      educating the public about EMP hard too. "The education curve isn't
      going up fast enough," he said.

      At the event, Cooper suggested that North Korea might already have the
      capability to launch an EMP against the United States. He said in
      December, North Korea tested its so-called Space Launch Vehicle which
      could deliver a stealthy nuclear attack on the United States by orbiting
      a nuclear weapon over the South Pole where the U.S. has no radar or
      missile interceptors facing south. North Korea, he said, apparently
      orbited a satellite over the south polar region on a trajectory and
      altitude consistent with making a surprise nuclear EMP attack against
      the United States.

      Woolsey and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich are the honorary
      co-chairs of a new EMP Coalition pushing for protections to the electric
      grid, national security, and civilian infrastructures.
