Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich praises Maine State Rep. Andrea Boland for her successful efforts to adopt model legislation protecting against Electromagnetic Pulse events, and Center President Frank Gaffney for “fighting tirelessly to inform the American people” about the EMP threat.  Gingrich notes it would be worse than a nuclear attack in a single city because it could hobble the entire country.  He notes that natural EMP event like the Carrington Event of 1859 would be a disaster in today’s technology-dependent society.  He endorses Rep. Trent Frank’s “SHIELD Act” as a means to protect the population from this threat.
