The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has scheduled a briefing for later this month to outline how the public can prepare for nuclear war.

"While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps. Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness," the notice about the Jan. 16 briefing says on the CDC's website, which features a photo of a mushroom cloud.

The notice went on to say that most people don't know that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is "crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation."

Two of the people presenting at the briefing specialize in radiation studies. Robert Whitcomb is the chief of the radiation studies branch at the CDC's National Center for Environment Health and Capt. Michael Noska is the radiation safety officer and senior advisor for health physics at the Food and Drug Administration.

This comes amid rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. President Trump tweeted Tuesday night, boasting about the size of his "nuclear button" and how it's "much bigger & more powerful" than North Korea's.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!" Mr. Trump tweeted.

Both former Vice President Joe Biden and Admiral Mike Mullen have said in recent days that they worry the U.S. has never been closer to nuclear war with North Korea.


Hal Turner Note:

Folks, for months I've been warning you that war is coming and that when it begins, we are very likely to be attacked HERE . . . . inside the continental United States. 

I have spent at least two entire radio shows talking about how to prepare, why you NEED emergency food, water and medicine supplies. 

I have repeatedly urged you to make sure you have N100 certified Filter Masks and waterproof goggles to protect yourself from chemical and biological weapons. 

I have shouted from the rooftops that you should have an emergency electric supply (Generator or solar), at least one gravity-fed water filter and other gear.

Now, the CDC . . . . the an agency of the federal government of the United States . . .  is publicly telling people how to prepare.  

The fact that a federal agency is even telling folks about this is un-nerving to me.  Government doesn't so things like this on a lark; they have a reason for what they do.
