With the recent economic crisis, formerly unimaginable scenarios have become terrifyingly real possibilities-learn how to prepare for the worst Global financial collapse, a terrorist attack, a natural catastrophe-all it takes is one event to disrupt our way of life. We could find ourselves facing myriad serious problems from massive unemployment to a food shortage to an infrastructure failure that cuts off our power or water supply. If something terrible happens, we won't be able to rely on the government or our communities. We'll have to take care of ourselves. In How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It, James Rawles, founder of SurvivalBlog, clearly explains everything you need to know to protect yourself and your family in the event of a disaster-from radical currency devaluation to a nuclear threat to a hurricane. Rawles shares essential tactics and techniques for surviving completely on your own, including how much food is enough, how to filter rainwater, how to protect your money, which seeds to buy for your garden, why goats are a smart choice for livestock, and how to secure your home. It's the ultimate guide to total preparedness and self-reliance in a time of need.
How long can you do without electricity it gives you water, refrigeration, heat, A/C, pumps your fuel, runs your electronics, and pumps your waste. Now how long can you go without it?

Chlorine is Poison
Any one recommending that you put Clorox in your drinking water cannot be considered a reliable source for survival info.
Chlorine is a deadly poison banned from use even in warfare since the 1922 Geneva Conference.
It reacts with water to produce trihalomethene, a proven carcinogen. Few countries outside America use it to "purify" water. The only purifying comes from a nascent oxygen atom which is kicked out in the chemical process creating the trihalomethene.
Oxygen does the purifying and there are much better and cleaner ways to introduce oxygen into your water supply, including ozonization.
Chlorene is a waste by-product of the chemical and weapons industries, and if they didn't sell it to our municipal water providers, they would have an expensive hazardous waste disposal problem on their hands. This way they turn a liability into a profit, and in the process futher debilitate the American public, which serves our masters' interest.
A sick population does not revolt.
Americans, and even their pets, have the highest cancer rates in the world. I believe chlorinated water is the primary culprit.
So deliberately adding it to ones rainwater or well water is counterintuitive to survival.
