As many as six million British households could be subjected to power cuts this winter if Russian gas supplies to Europe stop, The Times reported Sunday, citing a Whitehall document.
It said that imports of natural gas from Norway could halve next winter amid surging EU demand. Britain buys around half of its total supplies from the Nordic country.
Shipments of liquified natural gas from major producers such as the United States and Qatar could also halve this winter, the UK government warned, pointing to fierce global competition for supplies of the fuel.
Meanwhile, interconnectors from the Netherlands and Belgium could also be cut off in winter, as the two countries struggle meeting their own demand.
The UK, which has vowed to end the importation of Russian oil by the end of the year, is now seeking to bolster electricity supply by extending the life of its coal and aging nuclear power stations
Ok, before we go on to the CDC, let me just say this.
A few years ago on a prepper site, someone posted about the CDC planning for a zombie apocalypse. They made out it was because it was so popular and ultimately “ You never know “ except they did.
Now you think a zombie is a dead person roaming around, but it’s not.
A zombie can be a living person with the frontal cortex turned off. That would make them seem lobotomised and bitey.
This is the gene that will be turned off in the vaccinated. That gene when turned off will turn off the frontal cortex. You can check this out, it’s been verified. So, in around 18 months 5G will emit a burst which will activate the lipid particle inside the vaccinated and it will explode inside the body turning off the IP36 gene.
Sounds far fetched, doesn’t it? Well, it’s up to you whether you believe this or not, but you have nothing to lose by preparing.
If zombies were to start roaming the streets – yes, we said zombies – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention wants you to be prepared.
In the midst of providing guidelines on an unprecedented pandemic, the Center for Disease Control updated its tips to prepare for another extreme occurrence: A zombie apocalypse.
While the CDC says it began as a “tongue-in-cheek campaign,” it actually is a practical guide for any emergency, like hurricanes, earthquakes or floods.
“You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this,” the CDC wrote on its website. “And hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.”
So, what would happen if zombies were to start roaming the streets?
The CDC says it would conduct an investigation, as it would for any disease outbreak, and provide assistance to states. Until it could determine the cause of the outbreak and how it could be treated and stopped, the CDC listed guidelines to follow to be “safe than sorry.”
The first step is to prepare for zombies – or any disaster: Create an emergency kit with essentials to last a few days.
The kit should include a gallon of water per day for each person; nonperishable food items; medications; tools and supplies; sanitation and hygiene products; clothing and bedding; important documents and first aid supplies, the CDC says.
Next, you should create an emergency plan when a zombie, or a hurricane, is outside your door.
This includes identifying the types of emergencies possible in your area – such as a tornado or an earthquake – to prepare for that situation and make a list of your emergency contacts. You should also pick a place to evacuate to and make an evacuation plan, which includes a designated meeting place for you and those you live with to regroup.
This blog is especially relevant given the pandemic and last month’s extreme winter weather in Texas that caused 4 million people to go without power for days. Texans – and its power grid – were unprepared for freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall, leaving many stranded and helpless without power and water.
The CDC blog, which was originally posted in 2011, received 1,450 comments, most of which praised the agency for its creative approach to disaster preparedness.
“It presents a disaster in a manner that I can actually entice my family into discussion; and it will provide some assistance for any potential disaster as well,” wrote commenter Shelabella.
While I have yet to meet a zombie, I have been through a couple of power outages,” another comment read.
Disaster experts seem to agree about the effectiveness of this campaign.
“I think it’s great,” John Sellick, a professor in the Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, told Yahoo Life. “As we’ve seen with coronavirus, disaster preparedness is crucial.”
