Default Industrial Rebuilding Plan

Given the massive scale of the disaster that the project planners expected, material availability for recovery much also be massive. These are some of my thoughts on how the project might plan to bring back industry.

The 1970s saw a beginning of the systematic dismantling of much of the United States small/medium industrial base. Entire factories, steel and textile mills, and light manufacturing facilities were demolished with the materials sold for scrap.

In these activities a Council of Tomorrow shell company saw both a money making opportunity and a chance to squirrel away these pieces of low to medium tech industrial equipment. The offered a full service solution involving dismantling and removing said materials. The cover story was a pure scrap metal deal.

In the end a majority of the materials were scrapped but the most needed materials, those in the best condition, and those most easily converted to fusion power, were tucked away in the projects vast abandoned salt and chalk mines.

Once the project had stabilized agriculture and basic health services to a region, the next phase would involve bring these materials into the region so at least the very basics of industry could begin again.
