Got Power? The Truth is Stranger than Fiction; Solar Storms and Terrorist Nations Do Exist

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what’s a Google Earth satellite image of a new Iranian nuclear site worth?

Last week while President Obama was in Israel, the message to the World was, Iran is a year or so away from developing a nuclear weapon.

Not everyone is as certain of the intelligence information behind the President’s confident statement and suggest the red line is a lot closer than the administration is acknowledging.

Last week information was released, but not widely covered by the national media, that suggests Iran may be further ahead than we think.

“President Obama assured us that Iran is a year away from a bomb. Yet the human intelligence, which appears credible due to this visual report, indicates that Iran is already building a nuclear bomb,” stated Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and CIA/Congressional expert on nuclear weapons.

Dr. Pry was in Maine last month to testify before the Committee on Energy, Utilities and Technology Committee of the state legislature, urging their support for LD 131, An Act to Secure the Safety of Electrical Transmission Lines.

Dr. Pry, Reza Kahlili, Author of A Time to Betray, and many others believe Iran and North Korea are working collaboratively to achieve a super-EMP attack. The consequences of which are so frightening that the experts are having a very hard time getting people to pay attention.

“Two Congressional Commissions and every major U.S. government study has arrived at the same conclusion-natural and nuclear EMP is a potentially catastrophic threat to the nation, and the electric grid must be protected,” said Dr. Pry.

Dr. Pry and Maine Representative Andrea Boland, who introduced LD 131, say whether it’s the threat from Iran and North Korea, or a significant solar storm, Washington’s failure to act means the states need to work quickly to protect their own electrical infrastructure from the effects of an EMP.

Would it surprise you to learn that Representative Boland says Maine’s power companies and ISO New England do not favor this legislation despite the fact that estimated costs to protect the Maine grid high voltage transformers would be about 4.2 million, or only one-third of one percent of the cost of the Maine Power Reliability Program?

What are the costs of recovery from such a catastrophic event?

I’ll have more with Representative Boland, Dr. Pry, Reza Kahlili, and others as the Committee on Energy, Utilities and Technology considers LD 131.
