National Geographic's American Blackout Is The Next Big Doomsday Movie

National Geographic is releasing a movie that is designed to scare the hell out of you!  It's called American Blackout and it's the story of a massive blackout in the United States caused by a cyber attack on the power grid.  This isn't that far fetched when you think about it, in 2003 the United States and Canada experienced a massive blackout in the North East that affected an estimated 10 million people in Ontario and 45 million people in eight U.S. states.  However, that blackout wasn't caused by a cyber attack, it was a software bug combined with agging equipment that caused the problem.
