This Hollywood Celebrity Made a Documentary about the BIGGEST threat to human life

Dennis Quaid thinks the US power grid is vulnerable: The actor is best known for his roles in films like "The Right Stuff," "Innerspace," and "The Rookie," and he recently appeared on Tucker Carlson to promote his new documentary, "Grid Down, Power Up," which delves into the vulnerabilities of the U.S. power grid.

“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,” Quaid explained to Carlson.

Quaid pointed out that solar events like these are not unprecedented, referencing the Carrington Event of 1859. During that period, the tech landscape was limited to telegraph lines. "It fried our entire telegraph system," Quaid said. He prompted Carlson to consider the potential consequences for modern society if a storm of similar magnitude were to strike today, which would cause a widespread blackout similar to the events of 1859.

“There wouldn’t be water in your tap. You couldn’t get gas for your car because the whole system is broken down,” Quaid said. “Everything that we rely upon would be gone. The food would melt in our refrigerators.” Within a year, 90% of the world’s population would be dead from starvation, disease, and total and utter social catastrophe.
