Prelude

Assuming the scope and desire is to live past the initial calamity this information may be of assistance to those with an instinct to survive what comes next. This is one of those scenarios that can have a global impact effecting most all regions of Earth at various degrees of severity.  It is probably best practice to prepare for any number of contingencies associated with mother Earth regurgitating. A severe magnetic pole shift is suspected to create an array of responses similar to natural disasters all occurring at nearly the same time. A rapid pole shift due to rapid continental shift and roll compounds the urgency to be prepared for just about anything. It it always advantageous to be self reliant and ready to act when disaster strikes. Have a diverse POA, (Plan of action).

Long term loss of electrical power

Living within the construct of modern societies forces inhabitants to rely on electricity for daily routine and survival. If asked to give up our electricity for long duration's of time the answer would most likely be NO. Sometimes we don't have a choice. Went the power goes out we fully expect for it to return within the next few hours or so. What happens when it doesn't? Preparing for a long term loss of electrical power involves addressing two questions.

1).   Are we self reliant enough to survive without the conveniences of modern day technology and the electrical power to fuel it? 

2).   Are we willing to learn new skills?

.

Questions like these must be answered and addressed prior to an actual event if preparation and readiness is the intent. If our daily lives are completely reliant upon electrical devices and machines for routine tasks than some measure of electricity will be needed as a crutch to bridge the gap of time until power can be restored. It is expected that a severe pole shift will knock out power grids and not be available for use for some time, (Weeks to months). Many survival minded enthusiasts tend to focus on a degree of self reliance and plan for power loss by way of a few of methods and devices.

.

Proactive and alternate measures for electrical needs include but are not limited to the following:

.

A).  Multi-fuel generators 

A typical gas generator modified to run on optional fuels such as propane and natural gas as well as running on hydrogen and wood gasification systems. Survival minded enthusiasts who focus on having electrical power during times of calamities often purchase modification kits to enhance their gas generators. This can be a DIY at home project. This allow diversity with the aim of utilizing more than one type of fuel. [More]

.

B).  Wood gasification

A DIY process that is intended to extract burnable gases from fire wood for the purpose of fueling gasoline engines. Gasification is a process that converts organic or fossil fuel based carbonaceous materials into carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. This is achieved by reacting the material at high temperatures (>700 °C), without combustion, with a controlled amount of oxygen and/or steam. The resulting gas mixture is called syngas (from synthesis gas or synthetic gas) or producer gas and is itself a fuel. The power derived from gasification and combustion of the resultant gas is considered to be a source of renewable energy if the gasified compounds were obtained from biomass.

The advantage of gasification is that using the syngas is potentially more efficient than direct combustion of the original fuel because it can be combustive at higher temperatures or even in fuel cells, so that the thermodynamic upper limit to the efficiency defined by Carnot's rule is higher or (in case of fuel cells) not applicable. Syngas may be burned directly in gas engines, used to produce methanol and hydrogen, or converted via the Fischer–Tropsch process into synthetic fuel. Gasification can also begin with material which would otherwise have been disposed of such as biodegradable waste. In addition, the high-temperature process refines out corrosive ash elements such as chloride and potassium, allowing clean gas production from otherwise problematic fuels. Gasification of fossil fuels is currently widely used on industrial scales to generate electricity. [Source]

C).  Home made batteries

What used to be thought of as a student science project has become a preppers crutch when planing for times without an electrical grid. Batteries can be used to power low voltage devices such as radios and other communication devices and when multiple batteries are used together the potential increases. Enough batteries combined can power a small house. Batteries can be made using coins and lemon juice as well as potatoes and such. There are lots of easy ways to make homemade batteries. Basically, any two different kinds of metal can be placed in a conducting solution and you get a battery. Familiar homemade batteries include sticking copper and zinc strips into a lemon or a potato to make a battery. [Source]

Other potentials exist with the concepts associated with the "Baghdad battery" and was experimented with by "Eric Von Daniken" and "Myth busters".  Multiple cells add up to usable electrical power.

.

D).  Solar panels

The use of solar panels is certainly not a secret and the advantageous are well known. This is but another way to be somewhat self reliant and create electricity. [Build a solar panel]

.

E).  Wind power

Wind energy or wind power is extracted from air flow using wind turbines or sails to produce mechanical or electrical energy. Windmills are used for their mechanical power, wind-pumps for water pumping, and sails to propel ships. [Build a wind powered generator]

.

F).  River or wave generators

A water wheel is a machine for converting the energy of free-flowing or falling water into useful forms of power, often in a watermill. A water wheel consists of a large wooden or metal wheel, with a number of blades or buckets arranged on the outside rim forming the driving surface. Most commonly, the wheel is mounted vertically on a horizontal axle, but the tub or Norse wheel is mounted horizontally on a vertical shaft. Vertical wheels can transmit power either through the axle or via a ring gear and typically drive belts or gears; horizontal wheels usually directly drive their load.

Water wheels were still in commercial use well into the 20th century, but they are no longer in common use. Prior uses of water wheels include milling flour in gristmills and grinding wood into pulp for paper-making, but other uses include hammering wrought iron, machining, ore crushing and pounding fiber for use in the manufacture of cloth.

Some water wheels are fed by water from a mill pond, which is formed when a flowing stream is dammed. A channel for the water flowing to or from a water wheel is called a mill race (also spelled millrace) or simply a "race", and is customarily divided into sections. The race bringing water from the mill pond to the water wheel is a head-race; the one carrying water after it has left the wheel is commonly referred to as a tail-race.

John Smeaton's scientific investigation of the water wheel led to significant increases in efficiency in the mid to late 18th century and supplying much needed power for the Industrial Revolution [Source]

G).  Wave Power

Wave energy is produced when electricity generators are placed on the surface of the ocean. The energy provided is most often used in desalination plants, power plants and water pumps. Energy output is determined by wave height, wave speed, wavelength, and water density. To date there are only a handful of experimental wave generator plants in operation around the world. [More]

.

H).  Free air energy for low voltage or low watt consumption

The idea of grabbing electricity from thin air seems far fetched but has been done. Expanding on this concept might actually be sustainable for practical use. This was pioneered by Nickola Tesla in previous history only to be shot down by corporate bankers who did not like giving energy away for free. They pulled their funding from the experiments ending the process of giving free energy to the world. [Relative source]

Earthquakes

Preparing for a barrage of earthquakes under a pole shift scenario may be a smart course of action considering the potential of such an event to occur. More on preparations for an earthquake can be found here. [Source]

.

.

Tidal wave or tsunami

The potential for rapid water displacement may be higher than expected as a result of such an event. Having a plan of action which includes relocating quickly to higher ground is certainly conducive for surviving this type of calamity. Keep a grab-n-go bag with essential supply's for a few weeks or longer. Consider a secondary location as a potential permanent one as the water table may rise and settle at an elevation much higher than desired.  [Find more here]

Chaos

Preparing for chaos is without a doubt a necessary aspect of preparing for any disaster. A reasonable plan of action, (POA), includes  measures to avoid congested roads and busy intersections between you and safety. Being prepared to defend yourself and family is also first and foremost when considering issues associated with chaos during such an event. [Defense info]

.

Loss of public transportation

Being self reliant includes a bug out plan that does not involve utilizing forms of public transportation unless it cant be avoided. These services may not be available during such an event. Survival should not be limited or impaired by systems out of our control.

.

.

Loss of communication

Back up forms of communication is advantageous to have just in case. The chances of this occurring has been determined to be likely during such an event. Many survival minded enthusiasts keep mirrors, flairs, large chalk and material to create Chinese lanterns for vertical display forms of communications. Extremest are sure to add to their collection of preparations with a "Faraday cage" containing electronic communication devices etc. , .... Just in case. [More]

Safe locations

A severe pole shift, ... be it of magnetic or of terrestrial type, ... has the potential to uproot people from their homes sending them off looking for a safe zone or territory. A degree of research, homework and exploration is advantageous prior to such an event. If not, ... it is likely that failable decisions may occur as families unwittingly scurry to places less advantageous for surviving and struggle unnecessarily along the way. [Relative info]

.

.

Food & water

It goes without saying that food and water is very important to have stored at the home place as well as a small supply that can be taken in a hurry. (Grab n Go bag). Just the same it is important to plan ahead making sure that location "B" has abundant resources for those not skilled in wilderness survival techniques.
