an alarming new documentary suggests that security problems with the inter-connected and seemingly convenient smart grid may be so serious that they could lead to a catastrophic failure of our nation’s entire power infrastructure.

In an interview for the upcoming documentary titled Take Back Your Power, Cyber defense expert David Chalk warns that our nation is in crisis.

Not only are our smart power grids susceptible to hacking, but they may very well already be infected with Trojan viruses and back doors that will ultimately lead to disastrous consequences:

Sorta crazy eh?

Smart meters blamed for hydro bill spikes

BC Hydro smart meters are being blamed for dramatic spikes in power bills this winter, but the company denies the controversial devices are leading to bigger bills.

Susan McDonnell contacted Steele on Your Side after receiving a $745 power bill in December for her one-bedroom Kitsilano condo – a jump of more than 1,000 per cent.

The comments are interesting. I'm hearing everyone who let BC Hydro install a smart meter complain about doubling (or more) prices. I pay (five bedroom detached house) about $70 every two months for hydro which is exceptionally cheap but don't use a lot of electricity. Yet one shill says $61/month is cheap for a one bedroom apt? Yeah right.

Really glad I opted out and kept the analog meter.

That's not the only problem. The entire infrastructure is falling apart. Right along with sewer systems, storm drains, bridges, roads, water pipes...

It's all falling apart. That the gods we at least had $650 billion to keep the war machine rolling!

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
The night
