(Planet Today) Preppers are well aware of the importance of prepping before SHTF, but this doesn’t mean that a survival plan is automatically fail-proof. Some situations may require specialized responses that you can only hatch at the moment. This is why preppers should also know how to improvise when the occasion calls for it.

Preparing vs. improvising
It may appear contradictory to all that prepping stands for, but improvising is useful and downright necessary since no one can fully predict how long SHTF will last and what dangers lurk in that scenario. However, improvising should never take the place of prepping as this remains the best way to survive a disaster.
While you can create a fish hook out of a can of soda in a pinch, you can put together a cheap and more decent fishing kit that fits in an Altoids tin for your pocket by making this in advance. Similarly, while you can easily scrounge a beer bottle from an abandoned campsite and break it to make a cutting tool, you can also have the foresight to carry a knife with you.
Prepping saves you the time it takes you to hatch an improvised plan. It also smooths out the creases that can otherwise make it harder to address the problem at hand. Without prepping, the odds are stacked against you no matter how resourceful you are.
This is not to say that improvising has no place in the prepper mindset – far from it. Being able to think outside the box in the presence of danger is one of the most valuable skills a survivalist can possess. But improvising should not be your primary goal. Instead, you should always plan ahead and reserve the improvisation for when it is actually necessary.
But when is improvisation necessary? You should only improvise when your survival plan cannot address the situation at hand. This should be apparent to you after reexamining your survival arsenal. If you’ve exhausted all options to no avail, then that’s a clear signal that you need to improvise.
Improvised survival items that can save your life
It’s advisable that you use the right gear whenever possible, but in emergencies, you can improvise the following survival items to save your life:
- Smartphone signal mirror – Most smartphones have a flat screen that is big enough to reflect sunlight. You can repurpose your smartphone into a signal mirror by turning it off and using it to reflect light.
- Camera lens fire starter – If you have no matches but carry a digital camera, you can use the camera’s lens to start a fire by treating it like a magnifying glass.
- Sewing needle compass – A stainless steel sewing needle can be magnetized to become a compass needle. Simply take the needle and rub it vigorously for a few minutes with a pure wool material. The static electricity generated from the friction will magnetize the needle. You can then dangle the needle using a piece of shirt string and it will adjust to point north.
- Bootlace cordage – You can use the laces of your boots if you’re pinched for cordage.
- Car key saw – Car keys make excellent sawing devices to make notches in branches or whatnot.
It’s important to be resourceful to be able to improvise in situations that are not covered by your survival plan. But improvising should not replace prepping because it greatly limits your options and curbs your ability to respond adequately to a disaster.
Hillary Clinton Claims Global Warming Is Killing 500,000 People Per Year
Speaking at this year’s UN Climate Change Conference in the
United Arab Emirates over the weekend, Hillary Clinton engaged in some
more climate change fearmongering.
She said extreme heat, due to global warming, kills 500,000 people
per year and that the majority of the victims are “women and girls.”
Without data to back her allegations, Clinton claimed: “We’re seeing and
beginning to pay attention and to count and record the deaths that are
related to climate and by far the biggest killer is extreme heat”
InfoWars reports: That’s right, she “knows” based on estimates that they “probably could” measure the number of deaths.
Clinton continued, “Even in Europe last summer, which has the ability to count and figure out what happened, they recorded 61,000 deaths because of the heat in Europe. We don’t have that kind of number yet from Africa, Asia, Latin America, but we know and estimate that we probably could measure about 500,000 deaths. And, the majority of those are women and girls, and particularly pregnant women.”
The failed presidential candidate’s comment is debatable at best and more than likely a flat-out lie.
A 2021 peer-reviewed study in the Lancet found deaths during cold weather were much more common than heat-related deaths throughout Australia for nearly two decades.
In 2022, the Lancet published another study finding cold weather deaths in England and Wales from 2000 to 2019 were astronomically higher than hot weather deaths.
“Each year in England and Wales, there were on average nearly 800 excess deaths associated with heat and over 60,500 associated with cold between 2000 and 2019,” The Lancet Planetary Health study stated.
GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy also recently posted about cold weather killing more people than heat, calling the claim, “An inconvenient TRUTH for the Climate Cult.”
More and more people are waking up to the globalist climate scam being used to roll out a dystopian technocracy enslaving humanity while the elite live in luxury.
Private Jets Headed To Global Warming Conference “Literally Frozen On Runway”
world leaders spoke at a ‘global warming’ conference in Dubai, located
in the heart of the Arabian Desert, discussing the usual: banning gas
stoves, cow farts, and petrol-powered vehicles, a powerful snowstorm
grounded all flights at Munich Airport in Germany.
in Munich on the way to Dubai global warming conference are literally
frozen on the runway, which has turned into a glacier,” said Ryan Maue, a
meteorologist and former NOAA chief scientist.

All flights have been canceled at Munich Airport.
Munich Airport traffic usually looks like on a Saturday afternoon
compared to today as the airport has closed due to heavy snowfall. MUC
is expected to reopen tomorrow at 0500 UTC.

If not in years, Munich might have received the most significant snowfall on record.
With 44 cm left on the ground this morning, Munich, Germany has officially experienced its biggest December snowstorm on record.

Another inconvenient truth…
Europe hasn’t seen a snow cover like this since 2010—60% is blanketed in white! ❄️ pic.twitter.com/zuDB1GfkxM

world leaders actually believed in global warming, they would’ve not
flown private jets to the desert. Furthermore, having a global warming
conference in an area where it snows is just bad optics for these
