The U.S. Government is preparing for a potential “black sky” event which could cause widespread power outages after an EMP attack, a mega earthquake, or a cyber terrorist incident

(VERO BEACH, FL) 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 technologically. 

According to The Electric Infrastructure Security (EIS) Council’s website 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.”

Reporting on her trip to a summit convened to study the impact of a “massive cataclysm that severely disrupts the normal functioning of our critical infrastructures in multiple regions for long periods of time,” former Florida Congresswoman Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda wrote,  “It’s not ‘if’ but ‘when’ a Black Sky event will occur.”

Mrs. Vasilinda discussed meeting with “members of the U.S. military, National Guard Adjutant Generals, officials from Homeland Security, Department of Energy, FEMA, NOAA, and experts from the utility, distribution and supply sectors,” at the private summit held in Washington DC.

“As former President Reagan said, there really is a bear in the woods,” former Assistant Defense Secretary Paul Stockton, who also serves as an advisor for EIS, told WPTV correspondent Mike Vasilinda, who also attended the event. “Responding to 'Black Sky' events is all about industry in the lead and government in support. Folks, we’re nowhere near where we need to be for that.”

The summit was attended by 200 experts from 24 countries and was hosted by House Armed Services Committee member Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), House Homeland Security Committee member Yvette Clarke (D-NY), and the Former Chair of the UK House of Commons Defense Committee Rt Hon. Lord James Arbuthnot of Edrom, who also serve as advisors for the EIS Council.

According to their website bio, the EIS Council “facilitates national and international collaboration and planning to protect our societies’ critical utilities against uniquely severe Black Sky Hazards.”
