Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012
I hate stories there there is some big EMP and it is implied that all the technology will be gone forever (Escape from LA comes to mind). We know how to build new generators and go from there, magnets are not going to just cease to exist as Christopher has mentioned. It would have to be a situation where our technology is zapped and gone and AND humans no longer have the knowledge to build a simple electric generator.
Also EMPs can be shielded against, the military does it, not a big deal.
