Special thanks from J.R. Nyquist to Mrs. Laurie Burns for sending a copy of Dresson H. Kearny's classic Nuclear War Survival Skills with the updated 1999 addendum

Nuclear War Survival Skills, by Cresson H. Kearny, foreword by Edward Teller (Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, Cave Junction, Oregon). Comprehensive and updated in 1999, this is the ultimate self-help book on civil defense. The author is aware that nuclear war is a real concern. He admonishes his readers: "Work to persuade the President, your Congressmen, your Senators, and other leaders to support improved nuclear war survival preparations, starting with increased funding for war-related civil defense. Urge them to approve and fund the early deployment of truly defensive weapons that tests already have proven capable of destroying some warheads in flight." Of course, readers of know that serious improvements in civil defense are not going to happen for a number of reasons (mostly having to do with the social psychology of the "shopping mall regime"). Nevertheless, if the government won't do anything there is always the good old-fashioned American way to do it (i.e., by doing it yourself). In Chapter One of Kearny's book he lists nuclear war myths and facts. This should be required reading in America's public schools. Here is a sampling:

"Myth: Fallout radiation from a nuclear war would poison the air and all parts of the environment. It would kill everyone. (This is the demoralizing message of On the Beach and many similar pseudo-scientific books and articles.)"

Americans need to educate themselves about nuclear war. The current global crisis is building, with terrorists plotting the destruction of the United States (while the sponsors of terrorism build missiles and bombs of their own). Kearny's book is the best overall information resource on "how to" protect you and your family during the next world war.

Survive the Coming Nuclear War, by Ronald L. Cruit and Robert L. Cruit, M.D. (New York: STEIN AND DAY, 1982). This is a basic guide to survival. According to the authors, those who take responsibility for their safety can survive. Consider their comment on Russian versus American war preparations in the 1980s: "Over the past decade we spent $900 million on civil defense, while the Soviets spent $65 billion. One estimate is that in a nuclear war Russia would lose 4 percent of its people -- half what they lost in World War II. Ten of us would die to their one. In yet another estimate we would lose 60 percent of our population, while the Russians would lose 2 percent. Though these figures may vary widely according to which study you consult, the message is clear."

The Reluctant Survivors: a family guide to the prevention and treatment of radiation sickness, by Wayne D. Lebaron (Salt Lake City: Dream Garden Press, 1984). This is an excellent book if you can get your hands on it. The section on EMP gives a number of simple, practical suggestions on protecting your appliances. Mainly, unplug them from the wall. (Anybody can do that.) And how about removing the battery from your car if you think a nuclear attack is imminent? Hey, it could work. Mr. Lebaron also suggests removing antennas from radios and television sets. But the main strength of this book is what it says about the treatment and prevention of radiation sickness. This is an essential guide for those living in hazard areas (e.g., downwind from North Dakota or Seattle).

The Sense of Survival, by J. Allan South (Orem, Utah: Timpanogos Publishers, 1990). This book is comprehensive. It includes fallout studies and protection schemes. It tells you how to grow a garden, how to find drinkable water, and how to raise and care for animals. In today's intensively urban and suburban communities, this sort of knowledge could prove useful after the infrastructure takes major damage.

Life After Doomsday, by Bruce D. Clayton, Ph.D (Boulder: Paladin Press, 1980). This book is thoughtful and intelligent. It contains general insights and specific survival strategies, encompassing problems of economic collapse, civil unrest and natural disasters. Of special significance, Dr. Clayton presents us with one of the best fallout studies accessible to general readers. According to Dr. Clayton: "Most retreaters seem to consider the Klamath region of northern California and southern Oregon as about the safest place to go to avoid direct weapons effects, fallout, and starving refugees. Actually, many other parts of the country are 'safe' too, if you assume no fallout except from the missile fields. Even if the Soviets hit all primary targets using surface bursts, there are still many parts of the nation which will have less than a 2 percent chance of receiving fallout."

No Such Thing As Doomsday, by Phillip L. Hoag (Emigrant, Montana: Yellowstone Publishing, 1996). If you click on the book title (above), it will take you to Mr. Hoag's Web site where his book is offered for sale. Mr. Hoag has gathered a great deal of useful information. Of special interest, he shows how to protect electronic equipment from the effects of EMP (electromagnetic pulse). He describes the usefulness of metal oxide varistors, gas tubes and grounding techniques, as well as integral shielding with a faraday cage. For those interested in protecting against the effects of EMP on automobiles, according to Hoag's research: "Some authorities suggest that most automobiles with electronic ignition and computerized control systems would only be temporarily affected by EMP. Pre-1975 vehicles with non-electronic ignitions will generally not be affected by EMP."

If anyone is just now planning to go Y2K they are getting a late start. Tuesday could be an eventful day and the stores could be sold out of Spam and ketchup within minutes.

Yeah, too late for Y2K, but maybe not so late for what we may face in the future, i.e., WMD by terrorists within the United States.

Think what you will, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Call this a "Public Service Announcement" :)

Thank you!

Yes, TimeBomb2000 is an awesome Forum for sensible individual preparation and overall news gathering: Over a million detailed threads archived (4 locations) describing every practical self-reliant tip possible. It also is able to let its hair down and discuss fun things and has a sense of community support and sometimes vigorous debate. Lots of us lurk and post at Free Republic :-) TimeBomb2000 was started by Ed Yourdon in December 1997 as a Y2K Discussion Forum and has evolved into a prep and Where Is The World Headed think tank.

All those Links are really valuable in these times!
This thread bookmarked.

Thanks- I really think it would be a good idea for everyone ( not just Americans ) to get a copy of "Nuclear War Survival Skills" by Kearney. Those short on cash or in a hurry can get the online version. Just bear in mind "stuff on a disc" may not be accessable in a crisis. Hard copy is better.

Thanks for looking- I hope & pray we don't need any of that information, but it's good to keep it handy. I just keep recalling history, and the simple fact that "existing armaments have a way of being used, no matter how terrible they seem to be..." Nitroglycerin, dynamite, and the machine gun were supposed to end warfare... guess what happened? The nuclear proliferation that happened during the clintons' watch may come home to roost...
