What type of a world would Americanâ€™s encounter if our power grid were to collapse? Where would you want to be to have the best odds of survival for yourself and your family?
James Wesley Rawles discusses what could happen in an interview on â€œThe Watchmen.fm.â€
He says much of the questions about survivability naturally will be determined by the nature of the disaster, but a situation in which the power grid is lost would be among the most catastrophic. A loss of electric capacity could lead to an estimated 90% death rate among the population of the United States.
Virtually every public health system, from water to sewage to food and medicine, is directly dependent upon a fully functioning electrical supply.
He also says that if the grid does go down, you donâ€™t want to be in a town of any greater size than about 500 people. Anything larger than that and the sense of community would be lost, resulting in an â€œevery man for himselfâ€ type of attitude.
The interview is from 2010, but itâ€™s even more relevant now than when it was first broadcast.
