In Forstchen’s new book, 48 Hours,with the intent of making it known how a major solar storm could severely damage our world’s electrical infrastructure. This time he gives simple advice on what to do to be prepared in the event such a disaster should strike Earth. it is a Coronal Proton Ejection Event (CPE) that not only has the power to destroy the world’s electrical infrastructure, but has the ability to trigger an Extinction Level Event that could wipe out every living thing.
A plan is implemented to ensure the survival of at least some people. But if the solar storm, a CPE, does hit, the question is: who will be granted access to government- controlled shelters and who will be left behind to face almost certain death? Each citizen will be asking ‘why is someone else being let into a deep shelter but not my family and me?’ The clock is ticking down with only 48 hours left to make those decisions and to prevent all social order from collapsing into anarchy.
