Hacker Claims Smart Grid Has “100% Certainty of Catastrophic Failure”

The left doesn’t care, in fact considering the inroads of both the radical green movement and communist groups who openly call for America to collapse it’s likely that the smart grid they envision is designed to fail. From MarketWatch:

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Apr 12, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — The vulnerability of the energy industry’s new wireless smart grid will inevitably lead to lights out for everyone, according to leading cyber expert David Chalk. In an online interview for an upcoming documentary film entitled ‘Take Back Your Power’ ( www.ThePowerFilm.org ), Chalk says the entire power grid will be at risk to being taken down by cyber attack, and if installations continue it’s only a matter of time.

“We’re in a state of crisis,” said Chalk. “The front door is open and there is no lock to be had. There is not a power meter or device on the grid that is protected from hacking – if not already infected – with some sort of trojan horse that can cause the grid to be shut down or completely annihilated.”

“One of the most amazing things that has happened to mankind in the last 100 years is the Internet. It’s given us possibility beyond our wildest imagination. But we also know the vulnerabilities that exist inside of it. And then we have the backbone, the power grid that powers our nations. Those two are coming together. And it’s the smart meter on your home or business that’s now allowing that connectivity.”

Chalk also issued a challenge to governments, media and technology producers to show him one piece of digital technology that is hack-proof.

“The computer companies that are involved, the manufacturers that are involved, bring forward a technology and I will show you that it’s penetrable,” said Chalk. “I’ll do it on national TV, I’ll do it anywhere. But I can guarantee you 100% that there is nothing out there today — nothing — that can’t be penetrated.”

Here’s a clip from Take Back Your Power that will chill your blood. Ignore the crazed hippydom of the narrator and listen to the experts concerns:

That’s why I am prepared for a non-electric lifestyle where we use woodstoves for cooking and heating, preserving food without electricity and learning to travel on foot or bike if the worst happens.

  1. Ever notice Anonymous, the Kremlin run Russia Today and Occupy Wall Street all have in common on this issue? They’re the wolves hearding the sheep for slaughter when it comes to devestating the American infrastructure.
