I am glad if govt./military is taking some steps in this regard but if only $2 billion would provide substantive improvement towards protecting the overall grid, why aren’t we doing it? That’s barely pocket change to the feds.
I agree with 74, sooner or later someone is going to take down the grid via emp or cyberwar, or Mother Nature will do it all on her own. Which part of this are they not understanding? Is it possible that they do understand it and are prepared to just let it happen? Unless they can keep the 100+ nuke plants and their spent fuel pools in the country from melting down, they won’t be inheriting the earth so to speak when they emerge from their bunkers.
