The U.S. Government is preparing for a potential “black sky” event which could cause widespread power outages after an EMP attack, a mega earthquake, or a cyber terrorist incident
(VERO BEACH, FL) On August 23rd FEMA and the Energy Department are sponsoring a drill dubbed EarthEX2017, which will war-game effective responses to aftermath of a “Carrington-like Event”, or rather, an incident which has taken America back to the Stone Age technologically.
According to The Electric Infrastructure Security (EIS) Council’s website for the Earth Ex drill, the exercise will simulate a “subcontinent-scale, long duration power outage, with cascading failures of all other infrastructures.”
The EIS Council defines “Black sky events” as “catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees.”
