MnRTV Live Show-Wed Nov, 30 2016 @ 730 Est - Special Guest -Benjamin Dancer - The Power Grid - How vulnerable is it?

We rely so much on the power grid in modern times with the need for electricity heating and all this hi tech society we live in with the computers cell phones tablets smart tvs. However if the grid would go down how vulnerable are we. If there was an attack via terrorists or the sun could it send us back in the stone age? We have special guest Benjamin Dancer he is the Director of Public Relations for the Colorado EMP Task Force (Peter Pry's organization), discusses the vulnerability of the US power grid. He explores the threat in his new novel in which a villain tries to sabotage the grid with a sophisticated cyberattack. Mass casualties would likely occur if the power grid goes down for an extended period, with increased sanitation issues, he noted. Dancer also pointed out that the approximately 100 nuclear facilities in America are dependent on electricity to run safely. While they do have emergency generators that run on diesel, once that fuel is depleted, we could be looking at multiple Fukushima situations, he cautioned.
