RANT: A coast-to-coast blackout if the Gooferment remains in charge!

U.S. Risks National Blackout From Small-Scale Attack on Substations
The U.S. could suffer a coast-to-coast blackout if saboteurs knocked out just nine of the country’s 55,000 electric-transmission substations on a scorching summer day, according to a previously unreported federal analysis.

The study by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission concluded that coordinated attacks in each of the nation’s three separate electric systems could cause the entire power network to collapse, people familiar with the research said.

The electric grid is to important to allow the Gooferment to be involved. At worst, it’s should be a corporation with the PSEGs and PEs of the country as its stockholders. No juice; sorry PSEG you don’t get paid. How happy will your stockholders be? Better than unelected bureaucrats in fancy suits with expense accounts and pensions, who will just exit stage left when the SHTF!

Argh!
