Letter to the Editor: Protect our power grid

Devils Lake Journal

Dear Editor,

We should be doing more to strengthen our power grid against electromagnetic pulse (EMP) events.  These events may occur naturally, as well as by an attack form our nation's enemies.  They could destroy large parts of the infrastructure on which we rely.  Some experts say  they won't, but why take chances?

We should also have a ground-based GPS back-up system, (like Russia has,) or we could lose internet in an anti-satellite attack.
