In my most recent issue of Popular mechanics they actually had a long article on this. They said this is an area the security industry is worried about right now. They've conducted many tests to see what could happen. Some security experts don't think this is a big deal, some do. Regardless, securing power sources is going to become a major issue especially as you keep hearing stories like this.

For the people that don't think this is a big deal, what exactly do they not think is a big deal? Protecting the grid? Or do they think the grid is already safe enough?


And why aren't we doing the same to China and Russia??????
