On August 23rd FEMA and the Energy Department are sponsoring a drill dubbed EarthEX2017, which will war-game effective responses to aftermath of a “Carrington-like Event”, or rather, an incident which has taken America back to the Stone Age technological.
According to The Electric Infrastructure Security (EIS) Council’swebsite for the Earth Ex drill, the exercise will simulate a “subcontinent-scale, long duration power outage, with cascading failures of all other infrastructures.”
The EIS Council defines “Black sky events” as “catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees.”
