Interesting story yesterday evening on NBC news:
A power outage in Washington DC, whattya know! Traffic lights out, whole government complexes shut down, the White House on a generator. Big talk of TERRORISM!
In the end, the real problem – aging infrastructure. The NBC report says the US grid is getting less reliable all the time, 3 times more failures than 1984 – the worst of all the industrialized countries.
the problem is “money” – estimates run into the billions. Where should this money come from?
