    A little innovation can work wonders, but I doubt the controllers will be the ones to initiate something like this, unless forced:

    The lithium-ion battery has powered us for decades. But for a renewable future, we need a new solution—and fast. So what are our options?

    CORRECTION: In the video, at 05:40, we say lithium-ion batteries can only store energy for under four hours. This is incorrect. Four hours is the discharge duration that is currently economically viable.

    Reporter: Beina Xu
    Video Editor: Tomas Rosenberg
    Supervising Editor: Joanna Gottschalk

    We're destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn't need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we'll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.

    Yah!! I refrained from commenting on this one, the intention was only to share so people can see more and more on this subject is coming up recently everywhere mainstream and alternative.

    The main topics that had a surge in the last few months are:

    - cyber attack (financial, health, energy, etc..)
    - EMP attack by "bad actors" lol
    - solar flare (storm)

    which could possibly bring down the grid elsewhere not only in the US.

    The solar event which is expected in the mid 2030's will result in much more than a 'Carrington event' - if Ben from Suspicious Observers is correct, this will be the end of our current epoch and the beginning of the next major cycle of our world, he speaks of the planet up-ending, the accretion of a dust covering on the sun and this being blown off = a time of darkness followed by catastrophic micro-nova. Massive tsunamis and earthquakes, volcanic upheavals....geeze, a real end of the world type scenario, but always some survive to re-kindle humanity. I don't know if this is 100% correct, but Ben is a clever chap and we do have evidence of this occurring in 12,000 year cycles, flood myths e.t.c - I have been aware that in my lifetime something massive is going to take place, perhaps this is it. Probably it is time for another go at the prize, somehow we seem to have reached a final point that is too awful to be sustained. I don't know, do you? Something is coming down the pike, that's for certain.

    ~~~

    Here's the 7 minute trailer for Grid Down, Power Up. Quaid is merely the host and narrator.


    Personally, I'd thank him for doing his part to draw attention to what could definitely be a very major problem. (I have to say, I was surprised how much Tucker didn't seem to know about all this.)

    The real issue may not be cyber or EMP attacks (the documentary warns about Russia, China and Iran, an incessant mainstream talking point), but as Mike Gorman posts above, a massive near-future solar event that's been discussed and predicted by many.

    Here's Zero Hedge's new article on this: "90% of the Population will be Dead Within a Year" - Dennis Quaid Warns Tucker of Inevitable Major Solar Storm Destroying All Tech

    "Basically, there is a 100% probability that our sun, generating what they call a GMD, which is a solar storm, that hits hard, hits our Earth, and the magnetic field we have around the Earth, and can fry everything that is electric above the ground, including our entire grid," actor Dannis Quaid explained to Tucker Carlson in one of the former Fox anchor's most surreal yet terrifying interviews yet.

    Scared yet? You should be.

    Accomplished actor and musician Quaid shares insights on his upcoming documentary titled "Grid Down, Power Up", highlighting the inevitability of a massive solar storm (a Carrington event such as occurred in 1859) impacting Earth in catastrophic ways.

    At the time, Quaid notes, the GMD (geomagnetic disturbance) devastated the then-existing telegraph system, and asks Carlson to consider the potential magnitude of such a disaster in today's electrically-dependent society. He notes:
    "imagine what that would do now with a very large storm... it would take out not only the electricity but all of our infrastructure," the actor exclaims, adding that:
    “There wouldn’t be water in your tap. You couldn’t get gas for your car because the whole system is broken down."
    Quaid hopes that by bringing attention to the potential catastrophe he can nudge politicians into action to harden the grid against such events (natural or terrorist-driven)...
    "It's something we don't like to think about but it's... whether from the Sun or a bad actor this is something that 100% chance it's going to happen and we are just no nowhere no way prepared for it." ;
    ...although he is not optimistic given the challenges posed by regulatory agencies and the private ownership of power companies.
    "President Trump actually signed an executive order to harden our grid to protect ourselves against an event like this happening. Obama tried to get that going as well and it's stuck in these Regulatory Agencies."
    And if we don't do something about it, basically all the worst bits from the bible...
    “Everything that we rely upon would be gone. The food would melt in our refrigerators..." Quaid states, warning that "within a year, 90% of the world’s population would be dead from starvation, disease, or killing themselves in total and utter social catastrophe."
    He concludes the interview with thoughts on American democracy and the need for balanced political discourse, advocating for education about the values that make us a nation and urging for cooler heads to prevail in politics.

    Whitney really makes me think.. about what to do.. so many questions... I agree with her... look at what they are doing... not what they say.... It seems like, you can trust nothing and nobody!!!

    Anomalies...

    There are 2 points that have been Perforated my brain all the time from this video even before ended ...

    1) At some point the man ask her Who are "they"...about the dark manipulators...and for me he have something else in mind as
    the woman respond...like he bit his tong and force himself not to go forded with that thoughts train ...(about dark entities/Aliens )

    At that moment I"remember" some "woo" information about Earth been the only or one of the rare planet with free will...
    Meaning that the rest are something like insects colony...
    All the efforts seems to drive us in that direction...and then coupling with that came next fact...

    2) "they" want again a feudal time like it was 1000 years "Dark Age" only 1 king ,his army and then the peasants/workers, like an ant colony.

    But in middle that darkness light show up : the first printer machine! having an impact like today Internet...

    To that point only the church minions ( and some "nobles")could read Latin ,that was the language used in Bibles, therefor given
    whatever interpretation "the elite" suit better... Remember. most people couldn't reed...

    With that new technology the peasants could take another picture(not only from that book) and then good sh1t happens!

    Well, we are now in the same fork, and the "Elite" has learn that bitter lesson and are preparing all dirty tricks their dark minds are
    capable of...

    Well, nothing new here, another battle for planet Earth...again

    This is off topic but I want to subscribe what this lady says about Milei, his finance minister Caputo and a new round of pillage that is certainly going to happen in Argentina. It is amazing these days more than ever how with the right populist message large parts of a population can be fooled and betrayed.

    Absolutely right, Ms. Webb is an outstanding person, highly educated you can perceive it the way she express herself.
    This new president in Argentina will hammer down the country into the dark ages, he wants do dollarize Argentine and he said that right after he won the elections, what a patriot huh? lol

    • WARNING Prepare for GRID DOWN ... It's going to happen ... UPDATE!

    • Solar storms, such as GMDs, have a 100% probability of occurring and pose a serious threat to the electrical grid and society's infrastructure.
    • Past events like the Carrington event of 1859 demonstrate the potential devastation of solar storms, which could lead to widespread power outages and societal collapse.
    • There's a significant risk of power grid hacks by foreign adversaries like Iranian hackers, as highlighted in a recent White House report.
    • The availability of backup power systems like the Delta 2 can mitigate the impact of power outages caused by natural disasters or cyberattacks.
    • Preparation for potential power grid failures is crucial, especially considering vulnerabilities in the current geopolitical landscape and the potential for prolonged disruptions.
    No need to follow anyone, only consider broadening (y)our horizon of possibilities ...
