The United States is not prepared for a catastrophic power outage, according to an alarming new report from the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC).

The report, titled Surviving a Catastrophic Power Outage, explains the findings of the council, which is tasked with examining the nation’s “ability to respond to and recover from a catastrophic power outage of a magnitude beyond modern experience, exceeding prior events in severity, scale, duration, and consequence. Simply put, how can the nation best prepare for and recover from a catastrophic power outage, regardless of the cause?”

It begins with a grim statement in the Executive Summary:

After interviews with dozens of senior leaders and experts and an extensive review of studies and statutes, we found that existing national plans, response resources, and coordination strategies would be outmatched by a catastrophic power outage. This profound risk requires a new national focus.

  1. With our crumbling infrastructure, of course we are not prepared for a catastrophic power outage or event that would cause such a catastrophe. But would it really be so bad if we did suffer such? I honestly think that is just what we need. When the smartphones go dead and the personal assistants are useless and no TV is available for distraction, that would be a good thing. And in all honesty, that is what would have to happen to wake Amerikans from their deep and brain dead slumber. Nothing else will. And it makes me wonder, just how many of those who were impacted by the recent hurricanes in Florida are back in their homes with everything returned to normal. We don’t hear how they’re doing, but I suspect, it’s not good. Too much was damaged.

    This is all I could find. Apparently, demolition is still on going on the homes that were barely left standing and when it is completed, those whose homes were completely demolished will rebuild and so there ya go; another catastrophic power outage situation since people continue to rebuild in areas that have been shown to be vulnerable to hurricanes, massive wildfires and flooding. We are just asking for trouble because those in Paradise, CA who were impacted by the wildfires there have vowed to rebuild. SIGH!

  2. Wow, Shelby, that’s exactly what I was thinking when I read the article – that a major power outage wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Not only because it would awake Americans from their state of mass hypnosis, but because that’s the only way communities seem to come together any more. When there’s some kind of mass tragedy, everybody says how good it feels to come together to help one another. It’s never made sense to me that they can’t figure out how to do it without the tragedy.

    I’ve always been a big fan of Derek Jensen, who’s written a lot about civilization needing to collapse to save humanity (I don’t think we can solve the climate problem without dismantling capitalism). In my view, civilization has never been very kind to women – and it has been extremely unkind to Black and indigenous people. In fact, the older I get the harder I find it to distinguish between “civilization,” “colonialism,” and “racism.” Maybe I’m getting senile, but they’re all starting to mean the same thing to me.

    • No, you’re not becoming senile. You are just seeing everything the way it really is. It is ALL connected and seriously, great minds think alike. Because I long for a horrendous climate catastrophe that renders this shithole damn near totaled. That is the ONLY way people are going to realize that they need each other since the government will be useless.
