Tonight’s National Geographic movie American Blackout will feature my iPhone footage! The movie features some amateur footages and the production company licensed 6 seconds of my footage that was shot with iPhone.
American Blackout is airing this Sunday October 27, 9PM Eastern on the National Geographic Channel.
This Sunday evening, watch the National Geographic Channel at 9 PM to view an important presentation on what it would mean to you and your family if we lost the electric power grid for 10 days.
The scenario in this presentation elaborates the cascading failure of the national electric power grid, precipitated by a cyberattack. Countering cyber threats is a top priority to those seeking to maintain command, control and operations of the full complement of our weapon systems—from the individual soldier on the battlefield to the most advanced systems based on land, at sea and in the air and space. Less well understood is the vulnerability to these attacks of our critical civil infrastructure.  The banking and communications sectors are well aware of hacking problems, but few are paying attention to the more complex and plausible overarching threats. While some may consider losing the entire electric power grid to be a worst case cyberattack scenario, no informed individual can argue that such an outcome for the current grid is implausible.
A report from a Stanford Physics 240 course discussed how an August 14, 2003 chain of events, beginning with the loss of a few power stations due to high energy load, escalated with help from a combination of human error and tall trees, into the worst blackout in history.
After viewing this presentation, you will better understand how, following a longer blackout, our unprepared society could fail with consequent massive fatalities. Terrorists know these well documented facts; and potential terrorist exploitation of the world-wide-web makes multi-sector attacks plausible.
Furthermore,  if the large transformers at a large number of the nation’s main power stations are destroyed—the grid could be down permanently, and we would have a “Blackout on Steroids.” That is the case we have repeatedly raised as a major concern in discussing both manmade and natural electromagnetic pulse (EMP) threats. Folks, this disaster could happen if we don’t get the powers that be to harden our electric power grid and defend against possible attacks, especially from nuclear armed ballistic missiles launched from ships off our coasts. I believe we cannot rely on Washington to deal with this existential issue in a timely way.
Hopefully, many local and state authorities will follow the lead of Maine State Representative Andrea Boland (D-Sanford), of the Maine House of Representatives, who successfully advocated in only a six month period a historically important landmark bit of legislation, LD 131, which passed the House unanimously and with only two dissenting votes in the Senate. Andrea’s activities are very important as a pattern for other state legislators to follow—indeed they also should be of great interest to those concerned at the Federal level, particularly those seeking serious consideration of the Shield Act by the current congress.


We will continue our efforts with Floridians to help them understand the important role they can play in defending against ballistic missiles launched from vessels in the Gulf of Mexico.
Such defenses would build on the exceptionally impressive testing record of the Aegis system—with a total record of 28 successful intercepts in 34 attempts against short, medium and intermediate range ballistic missiles—and if the 2008 intercept of a satellite, flying faster than an ICBM, its overall record in 29 intercepts in 35 attempts—all performed by operational crews.  Such defenses would be critically important to protect against irreparable EMP damage to the key large transformers of the electric power grid—that under certain well known conditions could cause a complete failure of the electric power grid for an indefinite period. Missile defenses will not protect against the natural EMP threat, a giant solar flare that will one day occur—the only uncertainty is when.  Credible estimates suggest such another Carrington event is overdue—and this time it will have catastrophic consequences to average Americans who depends entirely on a just in time economy for practically every commodity essential for survival. In addressing these concerns, we emphasize that the federal government’s first duty is to provide for the common defense.
We will continue to advise citizens and local authorities of their absolute vulnerability against ballistic missiles launched from the Gulf of Mexico—and what can be done about it if only their representatives do their jobs. We need your help in spreading this information to the grass roots and to encourage all “powers that be” to provide for the common defense as they are sworn to do.

Remember March 23, 1983 when President Reagan launched SDI, the Strategic Defense Initiative—watch an excerpt. American Blackout tells the story of a catastrophic ten-day power outage that wipes out the U.S. With dwindling resources and increasing hysteria, would you make it through a ten-day blackout? Wow, our nation is prepare for any blackout, because in my country peoples face daily 8 to16 hours power load shedding :), So thanks to our corrupt leaders and bureaucracy.

Explore the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are going to great lengths to prepare for the end of the world. All told, 50 million people in the Midwest, Northeast and Ontario, Canada, with a combined load of 61.8 gigawatts lost power for up to 4 days.
Thus, I believe it is critically important to work with local and state authorities and help them understand the threat and what can be done about it.


We can deploy the same Aegis Ashore missile defense system we are building in Romania (by 2015) and Poland (by 2018)—with no additional research and development costs, except perhaps to prepare specific site locations in Florida—such as at Tyndall AFB in Panama City and at Homestead AFB near the southern tip of the Florida peninsula. The ultimate result anticipated by credible experts is that the consequent chaos would lead to the death of several hundred million Americans within the following year.
To deal with this event we must assure that we do not lose our electric power indefinitely.
Providing effective missile defenses and hardening the electric power grid as quickly as possible should be a national priority.
And we are hopeful that our friends in Florida will engage to urge their state legislature to follow Maine’s initiative and also harden their electric power grid, while holding the Washington authorities accountable for their oath to provide for the common defense. From testing your personalized preparedness skills to tracking the rising death toll, follow the blackout in real time as it unfolds and wreaks havoc on your world. We grow and raise or own heirloom veggies fruits and have fast small reproducing farm animals. A few generating plant failures and a few transmission lines shorting out by touching trees set off a massive chain of transmission line and generating failures across a huge portion of the electrical grid.
It does illustrate that if the grid begins to go down in one place, there is a precedent for it to fail in interconnected neighboring sectors. If we harden the electric power grid, then we will have a good chance of reinstating other critical infrastructure upon which our survival depends. Thus, we will continue to urge the Washington powers that be to undertake both the Shield Act to harden he electric power grid and to enhance our ballistic missile defenses, especially for our citizens on the East Coast and around the Gulf of Mexico, where U.S.
Such a cascading power transmission failure is nearly impossible to stop before it has eliminated almost all power transmission in a large area.
What would you do if the whole country went dark and you didn't know if or when the power would be coming back?
We live out in the country on the top of a hill, we would see any problems coming from 1 mile away.
