Is Klaus Schwab in Control of the American Power Grid?

By Mike – The Organic Prepper

Back in November 2021, the North American Electric Reliability Corp (NERC) conducted a simulation called GridEx VI. Within this two-day simulation, the participants – a mixture of government officials, grid operators, power producers, and more – were involved in fighting off a combination of cyber/physical/info attacks against the American and Canadian power grid.

GridEx VI

Not only did they have to attempt to minimize the destruction caused by the attack in the exercise, but they had to restore the grid as quickly as possible as well.

The results of the exercise were finally published on April 7 in the form of the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC).

The exercise was comprised of two components: “distributed play” and “tabletop play.”

At least within the distributed play component, the simulation was comprised of five different “moves,” the first of which was “Move 0.”

Within Move 0, a nation-state begins reconnaissance of the North American electrical grids, telecommunications infrastructure, and natural gas facilities as they seek out the best avenue of attack. The next move, Move 1, resulting in large explosions at generators throughout North America and cyber attacks that hit the control systems of various aspects of the power industry.

Move 2 was a continuation of the cyber attacks combined with actual physical attacks against the pipelines throughout the continent. By Move 3, critical employees within the power industry were “targeted” by the nation-state aggressor. And then, in Move 4, there were numerous anonymous threats made over social media to other workers within the power industry to sow fear and panic.

The end results of the exercise showcased a few things that may be of interest to the prepper.

For starters, the simulation ended with the encouragement of the power industry to focus on areas that have their telecommunications infrastructure damaged after a power outage/attack. This is because the simulation highlighted the importance of proper communications ability for speedily turning the lights back on. If you want the electricity to come back online as quickly as possible, workers within the power industry need to be able to communicate with each other instantaneously. Without proper comms, the timeframe of getting back to “normal” increases drastically.

There are three different power grids that exist within the United States. Roughly, they’re separated into the Western US, the Eastern US, and Texas. Texas is the only state in the continental US that has its own grid. This is an interesting fact to remember when upon reading through the report, you discover that Texas had more participants in the simulation than any other state in the Union (witness page 4 of the report).

But that’s not what I noticed most about the GridEx VI report.

It was after reading Behind the Green Mask that I first became aware of the token phrases that are associated with Agenda 21. Directly linked with Agenda 21 is the World Economic Forum. One of the token phrases of the World Economic Forum is “stakeholders.”

After seeing the work ‘stakeholders’ first appearing on page 8 of the report, I instantly became suspicious. At first, I thought that this might be just another inert simulation/exercise – something akin to the fight for Pineland.

So, I did a little digging.

It turns out that the NERC is associated with the World Economic Forum.

Klaus Schwab is the head of the World Economic Forum. Seeing that the NERC is now associated with the WEF, does this mean that Klaus Schwab is in control of the American electrical grid? There are a few interesting aspects of this to look into.

For starters, Schwab has been talking about cyberattacks for quite some time now. It wasn’t long ago that we were warned of an incoming “cyber pandemic” that would be worse than any infectious disease we’d ever seen. This was what Cyber Polygon looked at.

It’s also interesting to point out that GridEx VI starts with the warning that a nation-state is conducting reconnaissance of the American power grid. In real life, we’re now being warned that a nation-state is conducting reconnaissance of the American power grid. If there’s one thing we’ve learned of late, it’s that the first casualty of war is truth.

All I know is this:

There are clear ties between a globalist/communist organization that wants to rob the entire world of their private property (and then tell you you’re happy about it) and the American power grid. Is this something you’re comfortable with? Because I, for one, am not.

If I was an employee within the American energy sector, I would have a large number of difficult questions to ask my boss about their involvement with GridEx VI, the NERC, and the World Economic Forum.

What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments.

(By the way, kudos to Forward Observer for first raising our awareness of this simulation’s existence. If you’re not a subscriber there, we highly recommend that you do so for some of the best analysis of current events you’ll find out there.)

WEF’s Klaus Schwab Warns “Global Energy Systems, Food Systems and Supply Chains will Be Deeply Affected” (VIDEO)

Published March 31, 2022

Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum this week warned of global cyberattacks and worldwide disruptions with food and energy systems.

“History is truly at a turning point,” Klaus Schwab said at the 2022 World Government Summit.

“We do not yet know the full extent and the systemic structural changes which will happen, however, we do know the global energy systems, food systems, and supply chains will be deeply affected,” Schwab said speaking on the economic fallout from Covid-19, dangers of climate change and clashing world governments.

Klaus Schwab said the answer to the global food and energy crisis is to expand government power.

VIDEO:

Joe Biden last Thursday held a solo press conference in Brussels, Belgium amid meetings with NATO members.

Biden was asked if he discussed potential food shortages during his huddle with fellow members of NATO.

Joe Biden said there will be “real” food shortages in Europe and in the United States as a result of Putin invading Ukraine.

God help us.

Elites Suggest Price Controls, Dystopian Travel Restrictions To “Manage” Soaring Energy Costs

Before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russia supplied the world with one out of every ten barrels of crude consumed. But as the United States, Canada, and Australia have imposed embargoes on Russian crude and some buyers in Europe are halting purchases, the global oil market is facing one of the worst disruptions since the 1973 oil crisis when the members of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) led by Saudi Arabia declared an oil ban on Western countries for their support of Israel during the Yom Kippur War.

The energy price shock of the mid-1970s led to the reduction of maximum national speed limits from 70 mph to 55 mph. The 21% reduction in speed equated to gas consumption savings.

Now the International Energy Agency (IEA) has proposed similar measures to lessen the oil shock following the Russian invasion of Ukraine and embargoes on Russian crude.

IEA said Western economies could reduce daily oil demand by 2.7 million barrels within four months by restricting how people drive, indicating the move to reduce highway speed could almost offset the 3 million barrel-a-day loss of Russian production for April.

“These efforts would reduce the price pain being felt by consumers around the world, lessen the economic damage, shrink Russia’s hydrocarbon revenues, and help move oil demand to a more sustainable pathway,” IEA said. 

The IEA has unveiled a ten-point action plan it hopes Western countries will implement to curtail oil demand.

1 -Reduce speed limits on highways by at least 10 km/h

Impact*: Saves around 290 kb/d of oil use from cars, and an additional 140 kb/d from trucks

2 – Work from home up to three days a week where possible

Impact: One day a week saves around 170 kb/d; three days saves around 500 kb/d

3 – Car-free Sundays in cities

Impact: Every Sunday saves around 380 kb/d; one Sunday a month saves 95 kb/d

4 – Make the use of public transport cheaper and incentivise micromobility, walking and cycling

Impact: Saves around 330 kb/d

5 – Alternate private car access to roads in large cities

Impact: Saves around 210 kb/d

6 – Increase car sharing and adopt practices to reduce fuel use

Impact: Saves around 470 kb/d

7 – Promote efficient driving for freight trucks and delivery of goods

Impact: Saves around 320 kb/d

8 – Using high-speed and night trains instead of planes where possible

Impact: Saves around 40 kb/d

9 – Avoid business air travel where alternative options exist

Impact: Saves around 260 kb/d

10 – Reinforce the adoption of electric and more efficient vehicles

Impact: Saves around 100 kb/d

Today’s oil price shock could be a redux of the mid-1970s oil crisis as it may suggest price controls are next. Prime Minister of Italy Mario Draghi stated Friday that price controls could be coming to the natural gas markets, likely meaning petrol is next.

Mark Twain once wrote, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” Baby boomers who remember the mid-1970s and the pain a commodity shock caused most likely understand today’s turmoil is far from over.

What is lurking dead ahead is stagflation; what may be lurking beyond that is far, far worse.

Astronomers Find 1,000 Mysterious Filaments of Radio Energy Blasting from Center of Milky Way

Kevin Hughes
February 5th, 2022

Researchers using one of the world’s largest arrays of radio telescope have found thousands of mysterious strand-like structures while looking into the center of the Milky Way.

These structures, which are also called radio filaments, pop out of the galactic center in long, thin tendrils that expand up to 150 light-years long or nearly 40 times the distance between Earth and the closest next-door star system, Proxima Centauri.

According to two upcoming studies endorsed to the Astrophysical Journal and the Astrophysical Journal Letters, some of the filaments come in pairs or clusters while others appear like the strings of a harp in equally-spaced sets. All of them flare with energy which is likely produced by billions of electrons bouncing through a magnetic field at near-lightspeed.

Although scientists have noted that such filaments exist around the galactic center for many decades, this new set of high-definition observations from the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa shows that there are 10 times more of the elongated structures than earlier thought. Studying the strange structures in bulk could assist researchers to completely unravel what these filaments are and how they were created.

“Just examining a few filaments makes it difficult to draw any real conclusion about what they are and where they came from,” said study lead author Farhad Yusef-Zadeh, who is also a professor of physics and astronomy at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

Center of the Milky Way is crowded with baffling objects

“Now, we finally see the big picture – a panoramic view filled with an abundance of filaments. This is a watershed in furthering our understanding of these structures.”

The center of the Milky Way is crowded with baffling objects that are too covered by gas and dust to properly study with visible light wavelengths. But by focusing on the energetic radio waves radiating from the galactic center, astronomers can catch a glimpse of some of the forceful structures and interactions happening there. (Related news: Milky Way galaxy likely teeming with Earth-like planets, study suggests.)

Using the MeerKAT radio telescope, which is an array of 64 antennas in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, the researchers of the new studies examined the galactic center’s radio activity for 200 hours, stretched over three years. From these investigations, the researchers put together a mosaic of 20 separate observations, each focusing on a distinct section of the radio sky.

MeerKAT, formerly known as the Karoo Array Telescope, is a radio telescope introduced in 2018 and its 64 antennas cover a diameter of eight kilometers.

It is also the most sensitive telescope of its kind and is a forerunner to the Square Kilometer Array radio telescope, which will be constructed in South Africa and Australia within the next decade.

The resulting panorama captures numerous known sources of radio waves such as bright supernova remnants and the gassy regions of space where new stars are sparkling to life, including the mysterious fingerprints of nearly 1,000 radio filaments.

Filaments produced by cosmic rays

According to Yusef-Zadeh, who was the first to find the highly organized, magnetic filaments in the early 1980s, the finger-like filaments are produced by cosmic rays – a form of high-energy radiation that originate from outside the solar system. Previous studies have shown that something hiding at the center of the Milky Way works as a giant particle accelerator, continually firing cosmic rays outward into space even though the source of these rays is still a mystery.

One evidence might be the gigantic pair of radio bubbles blowing out from the galactic center, one rising above the galactic plane and the other descending below it. Found in a prior MeerKAT survey, each bubble of radio energy exceeds roughly 25,000 light-years high and was likely made by an ancient explosion from the central black hole of the galaxy.

Many of the newly detected radio filaments, according to the researchers of the new studies, descend within the cavities of these massive bubbles and it is possible that the strand-like filaments were made by the same ancient burst of black hole activity that bloated the radio bubbles millions of years ago.

“We still don’t know why they come in clusters or understand how [the filaments] separate, and we don’t know how these regular spacings happen,” Yusef-Zadeh said. “Every time we answer one question, multiple other questions arise.”

The researchers added that future radio surveys of the region will concentrate on whether the filaments are moving or changing position over time.

Another Report Confirms that 5G Deployment Will Significantly Increase Energy Use

Edited by Ryan DeLarme

Opposition to 5G deployment is worldwide due to numerous risks associated with it including environmental (see 1234567).

Thanks to Environmental Health Trust for highlighting ANOTHER report confirming that 5G is an “energy hog.”

New Report: 5G is Not-So-Green and Could Increase Energy Use – University of Sussex Business School Report

University of Sussex Business School Report on 5G Energy Use Finds 5G Could CounterAct Energy Saving Potential

“This report confirms what we have been saying for years,” stated Theodora Scarato Executive Director of Environmental Health Trust. “The demand for technology is outstripping the increase in efficiency.  The energy consumption from the proliferation of these new networks will rise sharply due to the ever-increasing energy demands at every stage of the lifecycle of 5G equipment, from device manufacture to data centers to data transmissions, and networks.”

Excerpted from University of Sussex article by Neil Vowles (LINK)

A review by the University of Sussex Business School finds that the notion that 5G is green technology is not currently backed up by a strong, publicly available, fully transparent evidence base. The researchers did a literature review to examine whole network level assessments of the operational energy use implications of 5G, the embodied energy use associated with 5G, and indirect energy use effects associated with 5G-driven changes in user behavior and patterns of consumption and production in other sectors of the economy.

Academics  from the Sussex Energy Group warn that the widespread adoption of unlimited data subscriptions for 5G users and the facilitation of advanced and data-intensive mobile services such as VR and more sophisticated mobile gaming could “encourage energy-intensive user practices, contribute to ever-growing levels of data traffic, and counteract the energy-saving potential of 5G efficiency improvements.”

The study was funded by the Centre for Research on Energy Demand Solutions.

Recommendations from the study include:

  • Network operators and service providers should raise awareness among users and make information more transparent about the energy use implications of different practices such as streaming video over Wi-Fi rather than mobile data or sending a message by SMS rather than instant messaging.
  • App developers should also factor sustainability and energy efficiency considerations into the earliest design stages.
  • Addressing embodied energy use such as prolonging the lifespans of infrastructure and devices, designing equipment to be easily upgraded and repaired, and improving the reusability and recyclability of equipment .

Benjamin Sovacool, Professor of Energy Policy in the Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex Business School was quoted by the University of Sussex as stating,

“There has been insufficient ‘user-centric’ work focusing on the relationship between 5G energy use and user behavior leaving unanswered questions about how and under what conditions 5G might become more or less energy-intensive.”

“We also need greater resource and focus given over to the kinds of strategies that might be pursued by app designers, mobile operators, technology firms and governments aimed at reducing energy-intensive behaviors particularly around flat pricing structures, declining per-bit data prices, and the proliferation of unlimited data subscriptions which encourage wasteful practices and generate direct rebound effects.”

Tim Foxon, Professor of Sustainability Transitions in the Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex Business School, was quoted by the University of Sussex stating:

”Our review suggests that work on the energy use implications of 5G has overwhelmingly focused on the energy required to power mobile phone networks. However, the energy required to manufacture and install network equipment and manufacture mobile phones is a potentially important part of the puzzle that seems to be routinely overlooked in assessments of 5G’s energy use.”

The research paper warns that current studies into 5G energy use fail to properly account for:

  • the impact of the embodied energy associated with network infrastructure and user devices
  • direct rebound effects associated with 5G-driven changes in mobile device user behaviour
  • wider indirect energy use effects, including the scope for 5G to enable energy savings in other areas of economic and social life (so-called ‘enablement effects’)

The University of Sussex states, “The surprising lack of peer-reviewed, publicly available whole network level assessments on the energy use implications of 5G, and patchy disclosure of the key data and assumptions of those studies that do exist, currently make it impossible to conclude with any confidence that 5G will reduce the energy consumption of mobile networks.”

Neutrino Energy Group: Breakthrough in the Field of Neutrino Research ’Subatomic Particles With Enormous Energy’

Staff Writer,
July 31st, 2018

Often doubted and even ridiculed as “ghost particles” in the past, neutrinos are now finally starting to come into the view of the public eye. Recently the revolutionary breakthroughs in neutrino research gained much attention not only at the “Nikola Tesla Forum,” but also in countless media reports across the globe. Holger Thorsten Schubart, CEO of the Neutrino Energy Group, summarized the situation in his presentation at this year’s “Nikola Tesla Forum” as follows: “The neutrino particles that reach us in a single day represent more energy than all remaining fossil fuels combined.”

Nikola Tesla, after whom the American automobile manufacturer Tesla Motors was named, was a physicist and inventor. During his lifetime he was granted over 280 patents worldwide, primarily in the field of electrical engineering. Honoring what would have been Tesla’s 162nd birthday, this year’s forum was held in the historical city of Unterwellenborn and presented a platform for discussions and the exchange of the latest research findings in the field of energy technology. Not surprisingly, neutrinos were once again a main topic of interest.

Among the high points of this year’s forum was a presentation made by Dr. Konstantin Meyl, professor for Power Electronics and Propulsion Technology, during which he took the opportunity to introduce his latest book: “Neutrino Power – Neue Erkenntnisse zu physikalischen, geografischen und kosmologischen Zusammenhängen” (INDEL Verlag, ISBN 978-3-940 703-35-4). In the course of his presentation, Dr. Meyl was able to elucidate the activity of these mysterious little particles in detail. He also gave several concrete examples of how it might be possible to tap the energy of the neutrino. “In this book, I have compiled everything that I deem to be of major importance regarding the implementation of neutrino energy,” explained Dr. Meyl in a follow-up discussion.

As the assistant chairman of the Neutrino Energy Group’s scientific advisory board, Dr. Meyl had often been exposed to the skepticism and criticism that all proponents of neutrino energy once had to face. This, however, changed radically in November of 2015 when the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to two researchers who were able to prove that neutrinos do in fact possess mass. Now it has become acceptable to point out the vast possibilities of neutrino energy. Holger Thorsten Schubart explains: “Until quite recently there were many different opinions on the subject and to some extent scathing criticism. But in the end, our approach has proven itself to be correct.” Unfortunately, some scientists are still in the “Middle Ages,” said Dr. Meyl, and concluded: “The energy of the neutrino is enough to cover the needs of the entire planet.”

“In only a few decades the earth’s fossil fuel reserves will have been exhausted. Geopolitical conflicts over the last remaining resources and devastating climate change will be the results of our total dependence on oil, coal and natural gas,” said Schubart, and he went on to point out that the world’s energy reserves are not distributed evenly, thus allowing a few nations to profit at the expense of the rest of the global population. “The implementation of neutrino energy will herald in a new era for the entire planet,” concluded the leader of the Neutrino Energy Group.

In the last few days, many respected German and international news sources have been covering the recent successes in the field of neutrino research, including the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung,” the “Spiegel” and the “Deutsche Presse Agentur,” to name only a few. One of the stories presently receiving wide media coverage is the so-called “IceCube Neutrino Observatory” in Antarctica. Here researchers are currently observing tiny blue sparks which are caused by neutrinos from the depths of the universe. In an interview quoted in the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” Marek Kowalski, the director of the Neutrino Astronomy Department at the “Deutschen Elektronen-Synchrotron,” told reporters: “We’re looking, so to speak, directly into the barrel of a cosmic shotgun.” In its coverage of the same story, the German magazine the “Spiegel“ spoke of “subatomic particles with enormous energy,” thus underscoring the true potential of this research.

In the end, there’s nothing “ghostly” about these supposed “ghost particles.” Neutrinos are very real, and huge quantities of them pass through the Earth in a constant stream. A surface the size of a thumbnail, for example, is permeated by several billion neutrinos per second. And now that two Nobel Prize laureates have finally made it clear to a doubtful scientific community that neutrinos possess mass, researchers are starting to comprehend the true potential of these limitless subatomic particles as a power source. Exploring the possibilities and finding ways to develop this potential are the two main goals of the Neutrino Energy Group.
