North Korean Atmospheric H-Bomb Blast Would Risk Damage To Global Electronics

I sincerely hope that the North Korean government does not carry out its threat to detonate a thermonuclear weapon, or H-Bomb, in the Earth’s atmosphere. Since the most recent atmospheric H-Bomb tests in the 1960s, two factors have made it almost certain that an atmospheric blast today would emit an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) destructive to all electronics in line of sight: the global electronics communication network has become much more widespread and vulnerable to EMP damage, and H-Bombs designed to be “super-EMP” weapons have been developed.
Any atmospheric H-Bomb test anywhere would risk minor to catastrophic damage to global electronics, and might be mistaken as an act of war.

Quick Bio: I'm urgently offering this site to provide accurate information on the current hot nuclear confrontation between U.S. President Donald Trump and the North Korean Government, focused on basic information on nuclear weapons and strategy today, and worldwide efforts to avoid nuclear war. I am a 75-ish rural resident in Mendocino County, CA, with time to indulge my obsession with awakening the public to the ongoing danger of nuclear war. I've made a special study of the race to develop high-altitude nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapons, only one of which could disable electronic civilization over wide areas, possibly worldwide. I've written extensively on this topic, and am also the author of "Ecology of Devastation: Indochina" (Penguin Books, 1972). With my beloved wife Barbara, we operate the Mendocino Sea Vegetable Company, hand-harvesters of delectable wild seaweeds, and work constantly for world peace and harmony.
