November 2013 As Worries Over the Power Grid Rise, a Drill Will Simulate a Knockout Blow


The electric grid, as government and private experts describe it, is the glass jaw of American industry. If an adversary lands a knockout blow, they fear, it could black out vast areas of the continent for weeks; interrupt supplies of water, gasoline, diesel fuel and fresh food; shut down communications; and create disruptions of a scale that was only hinted at by Hurricane Sandy and the attacks of Sept. 11.


This is why thousands of utility workers, business executives, National Guard officers, F.B.I. antiterrorism experts and officials from government agencies in the United States, Canada and Mexico are preparing for an emergency drill in November 2013 that will simulate physical attacks and cyberattacks that could take down large sections of the power grid.

They will practice for a crisis unlike anything the real grid has ever seen, and more than 150 companies and organizations have signed up to participate.

“This is different from a hurricane that hits X, Y and Z counties in the Southeast and they have a loss of power for three or four days,” said the official in charge of the drill, Brian M. Harrell of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, known as NERC. “We really want to go beyond that.”

November is such a logical time to practice grid shutdowns.
I guess they aren't killing the poorest old people who can barely afford heating costs fast enough.

Still waiting for my ride off this planet. Taking forever to get here.

Quote:Most of the participants will join the exercise from their workplaces, with NERC, in Washington, announcing successive failures. One example, organizers say, is a substation break-in that officials initially think is an attempt to steal copper. But instead, the intruder uses a USB drive to upload a virus into a computer network.

Sounds like a Hollywood movie plot.

Money is weighed. Fictions are counted.

Lots of bad things shaping up for this fall. I went out and purchased 5 pair of heavy weight fleece bottoms. They fit well under my jeans. I also purchased about 100 chemical hand warmers. The small ones.

I think it's pretty obvious that the next false flag terror attack will be a cyber attack or on grids connected to the net, finally giving the pretense to crack down on the one medium that has discredited the US government wholly for many people.

Must be about the time when they want to "connect" all those internet lines they've installed over in the Middle East and African Countries so they can replace American workers too.

Our government is guilty as hell of emotional terrorism and treason. This shit is getting very, very old! They need to be thrown out of office and locked up for life. They are despicable human beings.
