Blackout drill

Be the 1st to vote.

I remember this day – one traffic light, then two, then three were out – and I knew something was wrong.

After all was said and done, it was clear that we would never get the real truth about this story. Already almost two years after , I was conditioned to not know the real story.

Now, I realise we were in yet another – a drill. This was a way to test what would happen in a densely populated area when the power was cut.

The drill was set to start at peak rush hour and peak power consumption – 4:11pm.

Torontonians who looked skyward on the evening of Aug. 14, 2003 would have been able to see the Milky Way—even from downtown. That afternoon, at precisely 4:11 p.m., engineers on the “Lake Erie Loop”—a massive Canada/U.S. electrical circuit—noticed a massive electrical load suddenly changed directions, triggering emergency shutdowns to nuclear plants and 78 other major power stations.

Here they insult and mock the gullible people with the official story, as written by CIApedia:

The Northeast blackout of 2003 was a widespread power outage that occurred throughout parts of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States and the Canadian province of Ontario on Thursday, August 14, 2003, just after 4:10 p.m. EDT.[1]
Some power was restored by 11 p.m. Many others did not get their power back until two days later. In more remote areas it took nearly a week to restore power.[2] At the time, it was the world’s second most widespread blackout in history, after the 1999 Southern Brazil blackout.[3][4] The outage, which was much more widespread than the Northeast Blackout of 1965, affected an estimated 10 million people in Ontario and 45 million people in eight U.S. states.
The blackout’s primary cause was a software bug in the alarm system at a control room of the FirstEnergy Corporation, located in Ohio. A lack of alarm left operators unaware of the need to re-distribute power after overloaded transmission lines hit unpruned foliage, which triggered a race condition in the control software.

Yes, we are told an entire grid is so unstable that an unpruned tree took down a high tension line (was it a redwood tree? After all, most HT lines are far above any trees). Again, the story need not make sense, as the entire population is conditioned to believe the media, no matter how silly or tagged the story is. The official number of human beans impacted: 55 million. Of course.
