Who's fault is this?

They have too many kids over there..... same as in China, Bangladesh, Pakistan etc....

In England we are at 60 mil or so and even that is a threat to the Power Grid!!

Current generation capacity is more than enough to meet demand and when was the last time you heard of the National Grid going down? Most, if not all, power cuts are down to the local distribution network failing, but the HV lines in the Grid are protected and well run by their control centres in Warwick and Wokingham, which are impressive set-ups by the way.

I have seen headlines over recent years of 'power demand surging' 'huge increase in power' 'bills on the increase as demand for power increases' etc etc.....

"Testing 1, 2, 3." Speaking of the grid going down has everyone seen the preview for the new series on ABC this fall, The Revolution? The Road meets The Hunger Games?

Although I like the idea of Oligarch's controlling the electricity grid and shutting it down until there is a road blockage (fascinating!) - another possibility - are they customers of Tridium's Framework?

...and if related, could have been either as part of urgent maintenance or cyber activity.

I think people in the US would be suprised to know how thin our grid is stretched. I would not be suprised at a major outage at all. Can you imagine waking up tomarrow in say LA are NY and knowing the lights were not comming back for a few days. That would be a nightmare.


Yea it sucked when it happened like 8 years ago.

Lost power for 8 hours about a month ago......I was incredibly bored. I get bored very easily anyways. but man with the power out you realize quickly just how different life is without it.

There is literally nothing to do when the power is out.....

I find it interesting that the people in power are more concerned about gun control than they are our national power grid. Politics and stupidity will always rule over common sense and practicality.


Well, you can't bring something like that up without being called a socialist these days.

Yep, all in the Daily Mail and other such rags which don't really know what they are chatting about.

Me, well I go to briefings at the National Grid HQ in Wokingham as part of my day job, what do I know, hey? And I said current, not in 2025 or whatever which is when the papers are claiming we'll all be in the dark.

Needless to say, there are power stations being constructed, as we speak. You just don't read about them in the Daily Fail as it doesn't sell papers if you have the headline "We're going to be Ok..."

Official says new power cut hits north India
Associated Press – 59 mins ago

news.yahoo.com/official-says-power-cut-hits-north-india-081841676--finance.html

NEW DELHI (AP) — An Indian electricity official says the country's northern power grid has failed for the second day in a row.

Shailendre Dubey says the grid collapsed about 1:05 p.m. Tuesday. Dubey is an official at the Uttar Pradesh Power Corp. in India's largest state.

The outage came just a day after a similar collapse of the northern grid left 370 million Indians across eight states without power for much of the day.

Both outages affected the capital, New Delhi.

Power grids across north, east India fail
Updated 02:46 a.m., Tuesday, July 31, 2012

www.seattlepi.com/news/article/Officials-say-India-s-northeastern-power-grid-3748354.php

NEW DELHI (AP) — Officials in northeastern India say that the power grid in that region has collapsed, the third one to fail in a massive, cascading blackout.

The failures across the three power grids Tuesday afternoon left more than half the country without electricity.

Earlier Tuesday, the northern and eastern grids collapsed.

 

India hit by 2nd massive blackout as power grids fail

www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/07/31/india-power-outage.html

India's energy crisis spread over half the country when both its eastern and northern electricity grids collapsed, leaving almost 600 million people without power in one of the world's biggest-ever blackouts.

The power failure has raised serious concerns about India's outdated infrastructure and the government's inability to meet an insatiable appetite for energy as the country aspires to become a regional economic superpower.

The outage in the eastern grid came just a day after India's northern power grid collapsed for several hours.

Three grids have collapsed with 650 million without power. This is major and my prayers with everyone there.

I see this as PTB, all those citizens being chewed in the mouth of the dragon and my prayers are for their freedom from abuse, exploitation and martyrdom and ours.

And that woman in red, seems to me a sign, a devil was played in the open to tell other nations and illuminati that they would be targetted.

They need to group up and help other get some windmills, solar, even out of cans, and salt water generators, salt water produces charge, even more if you add vinegar. Start to get the people opting out and off grid and living free.

If they target anyone, that should be humanities answer, give them the middle finger salute and get everyone off grid.

Could this happen in the USA? Yes, and it will if measure are not taken to prevent it. We are in a tragic state of affairs, the transformers are not grounded well enough to withstand a solar flare like we had in 1859 or 1920. When that next CME happens the equipment won't be available for replacement due to so many needs for six month to a year! When that happens, you won't read about it on FaceBook or ATS, the apocalypse itself will only be heard on shortwave radio. And in within three month many of the nuclear reactor around the world will go Fucashema on us...

...if and when that happens, it will be game over for most (if not all) of the human race.

This is my concern.

I have a small windmill generator in my camper that will run lights and the CB radio. In good wind it provides enough power to watch movies on the 42" tv.

But I have a funny feeling it won't do me much good if the tow vehicle won't start.


Hmmmm, might be time to buy a surplus duece and a half, no electronics to speak of, and multifuel, you can run them on whiskey.

Last time I looked they were about 5 grand for one in decent running shape.

So wait, one man kills twelve people in a theater, and we have a gigantic thread with over 200+ pages to it and hundreds of spin-off threads, yet a massive power outage happens in India that affects over 650 million people, and there's little discussion of it? What is scary is that I had absolutely no knowledge of this until now.

Some people have been saying that the Olympics are a distraction from something.

Could this possibly be it?
