On July 29th, former Director of Central Intelligence, R. James Woolsey, led a panel discussion on the growing -- and perhaps imminent -- threat of a natural or nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to the U.S. electric grid and other critical infrastructures that sustain modern civilization and the lives of millions of Americans.

Other participants were Ambassador Henry Cooper and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry.

"There had been a near miss about two weeks ago, a Carrington-class coronal mass ejection crossed the orbit of the Earth and basically just missed us," said Peter Vincent Pry.

Dr. Pry served on the Congressional EMP Threat Commission, as a professional staff member on the House Armed Services Committee and as an analyst in the CIA. He is now the Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a congressional advisory board dedicated to national resiliency in the face of EMP and other threats.

"Basically this is a Russian roulette thing," added Pry. "We narrowly escape from a Carrington-class disaster."
