Lights Out

I just finished reading Ted Koppel’s book Lights Out.  It is in our library here at Homewood at Plum Creek.  It is an interesting book for those who are not aware of the problems; but Ted only approaches it from the cyberattack aspects.  There are other potential causes, such as a solar flare and nuclear generated EMP bombs.  Damaging solar flares have happened before we became so dependent on electrical power.  He also doesn’t dwell on the longer term impacts on society … just hints at them.  To learn more about the impact, I suggest you search for, and read, many of the novels written about the apocalypse resulting from losing our power.  Everything modern is dependent upon electrical power.
