    Honestly that’s surprisingly low. I mean I wouldn’t want to be part of that group, but that’s perhaps 10% of the US population.

    I’m actually a bit reassured that a Carrington event wouldn’t be even more devastating.

      or maybe they don’t want the population to freak out about it and demand wisdom and real security from leadership?

        Lol, well, you’re not wrong.

        Definitely need to evaluate the source of that info.

        On the one hand, I’d think engineers would bring these issues up, and have ideas how to mitigate risks, in any industry that could be affected (especially power/telecom, since they affect every utility). On the other hand, I can also see management deciding to pay lip service to the identified risks.
