The movie Threads which came out in 1984.

The best movie I have seen so far on this subject.
Threads is a 1984 British-Australian apocalyptic war drama television film jointly produced by the BBC, Nine Network and Western-World Television Inc. Written by Barry Hines and directed and produced by Mick Jackson, it is a dramatic account of nuclear war and its effects on the city of Sheffield in Northern England. The plot centres on two families as a confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union erupts. As the nuclear exchange between NATO and the Warsaw Pact begins, the film depicts the medical, economic, social and environmental consequences of nuclear war

Using Mylar Bags for Food Storage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rC80DafNWs

Storing food in a metal shed in high heat temperatures:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW7_cTn6YpE

Notice the first comment on the second video:
Yep, was $10.50 per 50 lb. bag when we originally did this video. Basically TRIPLED in price! None of my mutual funds or PM's did that! And the food is actually USEFUL!
Start slow by buying extra grain when you grocery shop. Before too long you will have a lot of food put away.

Stored correctly shelf life of 30+ years.

There is no reason not to do this, over a long period of time its cheap and easy. Don't go hungry one day or have to listen to your children cry from hunger because you thought "this time its different".

Good movie, but the UK in 1984 is quite a different place demograhically from the UK of today. Demographics have already blighted British cities. I don't see the "British" uniting after a nuclear war. I don't.

Lights out: Most unprepared if electric grid hacked

The recent Russia-linked cyberattacks on a major gasoline pipeline and a beef distributor have the nation on edge for a far more devastating assault on the nation’s electric grid.

Facing intelligence community predictions that 90% of the U.S. population would die in a yearlong blackout, a new survey shared with Secrets shows that a sizable majority of people are now worried they are unprepared for even a short grid shutdown.

What’s more, a huge 86% believe that the grid is vulnerable to an attack, one that looks more likely in the wake of the cyberhacks of Colonial Pipeline Company and JBS USA.

Among the findings pulled from the poll:

70% would feel unsafe in the event of a power outage of two weeks or more.
66% believe their quality of life will suffer with an outage lasting more than seven days.
64% say they are unprepared for an extended power outage that will last more than two weeks.
16% believe the federal government is doing all it can to prevent an attack on the grid.

So the derided "basket of deplorables" would survive in the countryside and the welfare scroungers would all die after eating each other in the cities. Sounds good.

I've gone for months without electricity or running water in Eastern Europe--I'm American by the way. I guess your mentality is most important. My grandfather was from Arkansas and he grew up on a farm and survived the Great Depression after the Dust Bowl wiped the family out. The real deplorables are those who survive by committing crimes and hurting others. America needs to learn a harsh lesson; a lesson that it may not survive. Oh, well.
