Power Grid Attack

In “The Doomsday Book” by Marshall Brain, a power grid attack could happen in two different ways: a) a physical attack or b) a cyberattack. In either case, the power grid is under demonstrable threat, and the effects could be devastating as a nation-wide or regional power failure grinds the economy to a halt. In the aftermath, looting, riots and eventually starvation kill millions of people. These videos bring grid attacks to life:
