Well, sadly, Uni, people like Leveler still think the news and govornment never lie to him. I suppose you can find some reports amusing........like when reporters keep mspouting "this had nothing to do with terrorism, but we have no idea what caused it". Lol, and probably people like Leveler will continue to drool and knod, because the TV never lies!
"What we saw was small swings of our flow, our power flows to Ontario," says William Museler, president of New York Independent System Operator, a utility provider in upstate New York. "We were supplying Ontario with about 1,000 megawatts at the time this started. Those power swings started at about 100 megawatts. They went to 800 megawatts - ultimately went into the range of about 3,000 megawatts. When it got to that range, that's when the system became unstable."
One hundred megawatts is enough to power several huge auto plants; 3,000 megawatts is enough to keep the entire city of Tampa running.
