Industry is to be totally destroyed along with nuclear powered energy systems. Only the Committee of 300 members and their elitists shall have the right to any of the earth’s resources.

8 ) Suppression of all scientific development except for those deemed beneficial by the Committee. Especially targeted is nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Malthus maintained that man’s progress is tied to the earth’s natural ability to support a given number of people, beyond which point earth’s limited resources would rapidly be depleted.  Once these natural resources have been consumed, it will be impossible to replace them. Hence, Malthus observed, it is necessary to limit populations within the boundaries of decreasing natural resources. It goes without saying that the elite will not allow themselves to be threatened by a burgeoning population of “useless eaters,” hence culling must be practiced. As I have previously stated, “culling” is going on today, using the methods mandated in the “Global 2000 Report.”

All economic plans of the Committee meet at the crossroads of Malthus and Frederick Von Hayek, another doom and gloom economist who is sponsored by the Club of Rome. The Austrian born Von Hayek has long been under the control of David Rockefeller, and Von Hayek theories are fairly widely accepted in the United States. According to Von Hayek, the United States economic platform must be based on (a) Urban Black Markets (b) Small Hong Kong-type industries utilizing sweat-shop labor © The Tourist Trade, (d) Free Enterprise Zones where specula-tors can operate unhindered and where the drug trade can flourish (e) End of all industrial activity and (f) Close down all nuclear energy plants.

The trial run for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) a Club of Rome creation came in a test run against the nuclear power station at Three Mile Island, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Termed “an accident” by the hysterical media, this was not an accident but a deliberately designed crisis test for FEMA. An additional benefit was the fear and hysteria created by the news media which had people fleeing the area when in fact they were never in any danger.

It was considered a success by FEMA and it scored a lot of points for the anti-nuclear forces. TMI became the rallying point for the so-called “environmentalists,” a highly financed and controlled group run out of Aspen Institute on behalf of the Club of Rome. Coverage was provided free of charge by William Paley of CBS television, a former British intelligence agent.  FEMA is a natural successor to the Strategic Bombing Survey of WW II. Dr. Kurt Lewin, theoretician for what the Tavistock conspirators called crisis management, was deeply involved in the study.

Mexico received most of its nuclear power technology from Argentina, but the Malvinas War put an end to that. The Club of Rome decreed back in 1986 that it would stop exports of nuclear technology to developing countries. With nuclear power stations generating abundant cheap electricity, Mexico would have be-come the “Germany of Latin America.” Such a state of affairs would have been a disaster for the conspirators who have, by 1991, stopped all exports of nuclear technology except that destined for Israel.

What the Committee of 300 has in mind for Mexico is a feudal peasantry, a condition that allows for easy management and looting of Mexican oil. A stable and prosperous Mexico can only be a plus for the United States. This is what the conspirators wish to prevent, so they have engaged in decades of innuendo, slander and direct economic war on Mexico.
_______________________

According to written testimony by Bhutto, smuggled out of the country while he was in prison, Kissinger severely threatened
him: “I will make a horrible example if you continue with your nation-building policies.” Bhutto had fallen afoul of Kissinger and the Club of Rome by calling for a nuclear energy program to bring Pakistan into a modern industrialized state which, in the eyes of the Committee of 300, was a direct contravention of its orders delivered by Kissinger to the Pakistani government.

What Kissinger was doing when he threatened Bhutto was not official U.S. policy, but the policy of the modern-day Illuminati.  One needs to have a clear understanding of just why it is that nuclear power is so hated all over the world, and why the fake “environmentalist” movement, established and financially sup-ported by the Club of Rome, was called upon to wage war on nuclear energy. With nuclear energy generating electricity in cheap and abundant supplies, Third World countries would gradually become independent of U.S. foreign aid and begin to assert their sovereignty. Nuclear generated electricity is THE key to bringing Third World countries out of their backward state, a state which the Committee of 300 has ordered to remain in position.

_______________________

Less foreign aid means less control of a country’s natural resources by the I.M.F. It was this idea of developing nations taking charge of their destiny that was an anathema to the Club of Rome and its ruling Committee of 300. We have seen oppo-sition to nuclear power in the United States successfully used to block industrial development in conformity with the Club’s [“Post-Industrial Zero-Growth” plans.
_______________________

It is not difficult to see how the Club of Rome has maintained its grip on U.S. energy policies and where “environmentalist” opposition to nuclear energy is coming from.  Perhaps the Club’s greatest success story is its hold over Con-gress in regard to nuclear energy which has had the effect of preventing the U.S. from entering the 21st century as a strong industrial nation. The effect of the anti-nuclear policy of the Club of Rome can be measured in terms of silent blast furnaces.  derelict railroad yards, rusting steel mills, shipyards long since closed down and a valuable trained work force scattered across the United States, which may never again be assembled.

Nuclear Power: Anathema to the New World Order

One of the greatest advances made by man was the discovery of nuclear energy as a source of cheap and safe electricity. It promised to transform the world within a time frame of a maximum of three decades. In order to understand world events in both the areas of politics and economics, one must have a thorough understanding of religion and secret societies which play a leading role in world events. Secret societies, more so in 2008 than ever before, greatly influence the course of momentous events. The rich and the powerful belong to secret societies that most ordinary people have never, even heard about, and it comes as a surprise to many to find out that such notable personages the Elizabeth, Queen of England is a member of a number of them, all of which play a big role in shaping the course of events.

Nuclear power generated electricity is particularly hated by the leaders of secret societies, the men the Bible calls “spiritual men who walk in darkness and whose deeds are evil.” The Bible foreshadowed the coming of plague pandemics such as AIDS and SARS, ordained for the world’s “excess” population diminution by these leaders. Nuclear power is hated by the elite because it brings new hope to millions of people who will aspire to a better life once nuclear power is running and available in every city and town throughout the world. The very poor, the downtrodden and the unwanted see new hope in nuclear generated power, as the book goes to some length to explain, the very thing the Illuminati members are so much against. They don’t want an extension of life for those who would otherwise die at a very early age in such countries and India and China.

The book makes it clear that if nuclear power is allowed to reach its full capacity and its full promise, the world will take on a new lease of life that will be of unmatched benefit to all people of all nations. It also makes it clear why there are powerful people who see this as an unmitigated disaster and who will do all in their considerable power to prevent nuclear power coming into full flower.

NEW YORK | Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:25pm EDT

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Google Inc and two Japanese partners will pay General Electric Co about $500 million for a majority equity stake in the world's largest wind farm under construction in Oregon, the partners said on Monday.

The $2 billion Shepherds Flat project, near Arlington, Oregon, is due to be completed next year. It will stretch over 30 square miles of north-central Oregon and generate enough energy for 235,000 U.S. homes. The site's developer is Caithness Energy.

(INSERT:  30 SQUARE MILES, ONLY TO POWER 235,000 HOMES?  DOES EVERYONE SEE HOW FRAUDULENT, HOW MUCH OF A NON-SOLUTION THIS IS?  You could build a large number of nuclear power plans on that much land area enough to power 1/3 of the U.S. population or more.  ONE nuclear reactor site in India would provide power to TEN MILLION homes if it were allowed to be completed, and not false flag sabotaged by the Committee of 300.)

GE said the stake sale was part of its strategy of drawing private investment to the U.S. wind market. GE and Google are partnering with the U.S. unit of Japan's Sumitomo Corp and a unit of Itochu Corp.

Google, Itochu and Sumitomo will together own 56 percent of the total project, reducing GE's equity stake to 34 percent. Caithness will own the balance, GE Energy Financial Services spokesman Andy Katell said.

Itochu and Sumimoto will each win more than 20 percent stakes, Japan's Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper reported.

The Shepherds Flat site will eventually use GE 338 turbines and will provide electricity to Southern California Edison, a unit of Edison International.

Sumitomo jointly owns a Texas wind farm with GE and owns wind farms in Japan and China. Itochu partnered with GE on an Oklahoma wind farm.

Measured by its 845-megawatts of capacity, the Oregon site is the world's largest wind farm, Google and GE said.

But one proposed project slated for completion by 2015 is envisioned as housing 1,550 megawatts. That project, headed by Terra-Gen Power LLC, broke ground in July 2010 and will potentially dwarf current leaders E.ON Climate and Renewables' 782 MW facility in Roscoe, Texas, and NextEra Energy's 736 MW Texas complex.

GOOGLE'S STAKE

Google said its investment totaled about $100 million, bringing its total investments in the clean energy sector to more $350 million. Earlier this month, it invested in a solar project near Berlin and a solar electric generating system in California's Mojave desert.

"We're excited about helping deliver clean energy to the grid and we hope this latest investment encourages other companies to think about ways they can help accelerate the deployment of more renewable energy," Google's Director of Green Business Operations, Rick Needham, wrote in a company blog.

Google's spending on costly projects seemingly unrelated to its core search business is raising eyebrows on Wall Street.

Last week, that concern turned into consternation after the world's largest search engine revealed a 54-percent surge in first-quarter operating expenses, blamed on pay raises, marketing and other efforts to attract and retain talent as it gears up to battle Facebook.

Wall Street is now worried that new CEO Larry Page will not try to aggressively rein in spending as he pursues expansion into his cherished areas of social networking, mobile, search and other markets.

Some of the company's projects have included self-driving cars, but Google has of late been a heavy investor in renewable energy projects. Most recently, it threw its financial clout behind an ambitious $5 billion proposed electric transmission line intended to jumpstart wind investment along the east coast.

Google shares closed Monday down 0.8 percent on Nasdaq. GE fell 0.4 percent in a down market.

JAITAPUR, India | Fri Apr 15, 2011 11:33am EDT

JAITAPUR, India (Reuters) - As far as Taramati Vaghdhare is concerned, there is no question of accepting compensation to make way for the world's largest nuclear power plant.

"If you want the land, make us stand on the land -- shoot us -- and then take the land," said the feisty 53-year-old, wearing a blue and gold sari and gesturing with a spatula.

In the yard outside her house, a young man sorted green mangoes of the prized Alphonso type from her family's orchards.

"Our land is our mother. We can't sell her and take compensation," said Vaghdhare, who was among villagers detained during recent protests against the plant.

The stakes are high for chronically power-short India. The plant would eventually have six reactors capable of generating 9,900 megawatts of electricity -- enough to provide power to 10 million Indian homes.

Long-running opposition to the proposed plant at Jaitapur has hardened amid the unfolding nuclear crisis in Japan, with village posters depicting scenes of last month's devastation at the Fukushima plant and warning of what could be in store for this region in the Western Ghats north of Goa.

Even if villagers and fishermen manage to derail the plant, India is unlikely to back down from its broader nuclear ambitions given surging power demand and a lack of alternatives.

India suffers from a peak-hour power deficit of about 12 percent that acts as a brake on an economy growing at nearly 9 percent and causes blackouts in much of the country. About 40 percent of Indians, or 500 million people, lack electricity.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh staked his political career on a 2008 deal with the United States that ended India's nuclear isolation dating to its 1974 test of a nuclear device, opening up a $150 billion civilian nuclear market.

India now operates 20 mostly small reactors at six sites with a capacity of 4,780 MW, or 3 percent of its total power capacity. It hopes to lift its nuclear capacity to 7,280 MW by next year, more than 20,000 MW by 2020 and 63,000 MW by 2032 by adding nearly 30 reactors.

Shortly after the earthquake and tsunami that crippled the plant at Fukushima and triggered a global rethink of nuclear power, Singh said India's atomic energy programme was on track but regulators would review safety systems to ensure that plants could withstand similar natural disasters.

"I do not believe that there is any panic reaction in terms of calling for a halt for the nuclear projects," said M.R. Srinivasan, former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission of India, who selected the Jaitapur site.

"We will certainly review, in respect of new projects, the safety of those sites and the installations we propose to bring there in the context of an extreme, low probability but nonetheless possible natural event such as occurred in Fukushima," he said.

VANDALISM AND CRICKET

A recent visit to the 938 hectare (2,216 acre) site saw few signs of activity other than a group of policemen playing cricket. Defaced signs and milemarkers on the road to Jaitapur, about 300 km (185 miles) south of Mumbai, are evidence of the opposition to the plant.

While the surrounding area is thinly populated, farmers in nearby villages grow cashews, jackfruit and the Alphonso variety of mangoes considered to be the world's best.

About 120 of the 2,370 families eligible for compensation for their land have accepted it, according to Vivek Bhide, a doctor and mango farmer from the district. Community members say they are unified, and those who have accepted compensation are mostly absentee landowners.

Nearby, the bustling fishing port of Sakhri Nate is home to some 600 vessels that bring in about 50,000 kg a day of prawns, squid, kingfish and other species. Residents fear the plant will disrupt access to fishing grounds and raise water temperatures.

"The warm water which will come into the sea will drive away the fish," said Majeed Latigowarkar, a 45-year-old fisherman with a clipped mustache, striped shirt and skullcap.

He said officials have offered electronic gear such as fish-finders and GPS systems in a failed effort to win the support.

"If the government wants to give us something, just give us back our sea," he said.

MANAGING A CRISIS

During a December visit to India by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, the two countries signed a framework agreement for state-owned Areva to build two of its next generation 1,650-megawatt EPR reactors at Jaitapur and supply reactor fuel for 25 years in a deal worth 7 billion euros ($10.1 billion).

The Areva reactors would be the first of as many as six at the site, with construction set to start this year and operation to begin by 2018. Final contracts have yet to be signed.

Russia's state-owned Rosatom, meanwhile, plans to build 18 reactors in India, while the General Electric/Hitachi joint venture and the Westinghouse Electric unit of Toshiba are also eyeing opportunities in India.

Opposition to the Jaitapur plant is based in part on worry about seismic activity in the region and concern that India would not be prepared to manage a crisis.

India suffered one of the world's worst industrial accidents in 1984 when about 3,000 people were killed by gas leaks from a Union Carbide factory in Bhopal.

State-run Nuclear Power Corp of India Ltd (NCPIL), which would own and operate the plant, has said no active geological fault is within 30 km (20 miles) of the site.

Critics also say Areva's EPR technology is untested and expensive. No EPR reactors are in operation but four are under construction -- one in France, two in China, and one in Finland, which is three years behind plan and may force Areva to write down as much as 2.6 billion euros ($3.76 billion).

NCPIL has said the price of power from Jaitapur will be competitive.

LITTLE CHOICE

Whether the Jaitapur plant is built or not, India has little choice but to add a lot more nuclear power.

While numerous thermal power projects are at various stages of development, environmental and land use restrictions mean power producers are having difficulty securing coal, which accounts for 60 percent of India's energy use.

Gas output from the KG basin, for which India has high hopes, has lagged expectations, while competition for imports is intensifying. Alternatives including wind and solar are relatively expensive and lack the scale and storage capacity to provide base load supply.

"We are getting increasingly concerned about India's energy position in the context of supply shortages in most fossil fuels," Kotak Institutional Equities wrote in a recent note.

While New Delhi is committed to nuclear power, India's democratically elected leaders are sensitive to public opinion. China, which is pressing ahead with its own ambitious nuclear programme, is less constrained.

Residents in Jaitapur are encouraged by the long history of civil disobedience in India and say they are bolstered in their argument by the crisis in Japan.

"It only vindicates the doubts, views, we have been raising for the past few years," said Mangesh Chavan, who lives nearby and works in agricultural development, referring to Fukushima.

Last week, activist Anna Hazare ended a five-day hunger strike after the government Delhi gave in to his demand for a tougher anti-graft law.

His campaign drew the support of thousands and comparisons to Mahatma Gandhi's protests and hunger strikes that helped end British colonial rule.

In 2008, farmers in Singur in the state of West Bengal blocked Tata Motors from building a factory there to make it's ultra-low-cost Nano car.

Praveen Gavankar, a farmer and leader of opposition to the nuclear plant, said villagers plan to start farming on the site and if the government tries to block them they are prepared to go to Delhi and stage their own hunger strike.

"We will have to change the government's mind," he said, speaking outside a meeting at a temple in Midgavane village. "The government can't do anything to change our minds."

Lockheed Martin exposes insanity of Smart Grids...then offers to militirize them






Lockheed Martin Says "Smart Grid" Will Allow China to Hack U.S. Power
http://www.dailytech.com/Lockheed+Martin+Says+Smart+Grid+Will+Allow+China+to+Hack+US+Power/article19800.htm
Jason Mick (Blog) - October 5, 2010 8:20 AM
chunkymonster.. on Oct 7 at 9:52 AM

An old fashioned grid may be inefficient, but it may be easier to secure than a "smart grid". Much of the benefits of a smart grid come from internet connectivity, and that connectivity opens the door to attacks.
 
Coincidentally Lockheed Martin happens to sell security software.

Lockheed Martin's General Manager of Energy & Cyber Services, Kenneth Van Meter, speaking with green-power site Smart Planet voiced some dire warnings about the United States' push to adopt a "smart grid".  According to Mr. Van Meter, the transition poses a glaring threat to the security of the U.S.

He comments, "Right now if I wanted to cut off the power to your house, I’d climb the pole, and there’s a manual switch. Everything’s physical. Once we have a smart grid in place I could do that from China."

"The sheer volume of interactive devices on two-way networks is the biggest risk. By the end of 2015 we will have 440 million new hackable points on the grid. Nobody’s equipped to deal with that today."

When asked about the worse case scenario he remarks:

There are three. The one everyone thinks about is the neighborhood kid or someone in another country turning off the power to the neighborhood or the hospital in the middle of night. While no one wants that to happen, it’ll be detected pretty quickly, so it’s not a disaster.

The second potential problem has to do with voltage control. If you want to optimize the amount of power the electrical company has, you want to engage in voltage control, where you have devices along the line from the substation. You can adjust the voltage, everyone gets the right voltage, and everyone’s appliances are running more efficiently. Putting in those devices is expensive, and now those become hackable points–because if you can control them, then someone else can control them. So if your power is out, that would be highly inconvenient. But what if they ran the voltage up and down on your house and when it was fixed, the voltage-sensitive equipment like your computer and high-definition TV didn’t work any more?

Third: If you can cause rapid problems in the grid to occur in the right places at scheduled times, you could destabilize the whole grid, black out whole cities or states and cause massive damage. Sometimes this happens accidentally, but it could also happen because someone makes it happen. Some of the devices are very expensive and therefore there are few spares. Substation-sized transformers, for example, aren’t even made in this country anymore and sometimes it can take two years to get one.
Coincidentally, Mr. Van Meter's company sells security solutions to utilities, so his reason for evangelizing about the smart grid's insecurity may not be purely altruistic.  And Lockheed Martin has had its own security woes recently, with Chinese spies reportedly breaking into servers used in the company's F-35 Lightning II fighter project.


Nonetheless, the points raised are largely valid.  Virtually every large piece of software (Windows, Linux, OS X, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Adobe Flash, etc.) created has had vulnerabilities that have been found and exploited.  Its unlikely to think that the software that governs the grid will be free of similar vulnerabilities.

A web-connected grid, like Google Grid or Microsoft Hohm, sounds great on paper, but it introduces a pressing need for security, as people from all over the world can now try to attack the power infrastructure remotely.  And where a typical cyberattack may merely deny people access to a website, or damage their personal computers, an attack on the grid could literally prove deadly.  So Lockheed Martin may be a bit biased, but they're probably right, in this case.

Here they admit that cybersecurity MUST enslave the entire population:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/09/23/AR2010092306724.html?waporef=obinsite

"At a roundtable with reporters on Wednesday, Alexander advocated creation of a "secure" network for government computer systems and those of critical sectors, such as the power grid.

That strategy - walling off critical computer networks from the rest of the Internet - "is probably where you're going to get to, and it makes a lot of sense," he said.

But some in industry were skeptical.

It would be impractical and "unbelievably expensive," said Joe Weiss, a cybersecurity expert. who has researched the issue.

"It would be very difficult to try to interconnect all these different companies, including the government," Weiss said. "This isn't just one entity where you walk a wire around Potomac Electric. You have all the neighboring utilities that you need to connect to. You would also have all the other major industrial operations - and with Smart Grid, conceptually, every homeowner. This is not simple."
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

Is a Rogue Computer Virus Shutting Down Nuclear Plants Worldwide?
http://www.prisonplanet.com/is-a-rogue-computer-virus-shutting-down-nuclear-plants-worldwide.html
Washington’s Blog
April 27, 2011

It is now common knowledge that the U.S. and Israel developed the Stuxnet computer virus in order to slow down Iran’s nuclear program.

As the New York Times noted in January:

Over the past two years, according to intelligence and military experts familiar with its operations, Dimona has taken on a new, equally secret role — as a critical testing ground in a joint American and Israeli effort to undermine Iran’s efforts to make a bomb of its own.

Behind Dimona’s barbed wire, the experts say, Israel has spun nuclear centrifuges virtually identical to Iran’s at Natanz, where Iranian scientists are struggling to enrich uranium. They say Dimona tested the effectiveness of the Stuxnet computer worm, a destructive program that appears to have wiped out roughly a fifth of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges and helped delay, though not destroy, Tehran’s ability to make its first nuclear arms.

“To check out the worm, you have to know the machines,” said an American expert on nuclear intelligence. “The reason the worm has been effective is that the Israelis tried it out.”

Though American and Israeli officials refuse to talk publicly about what goes on at Dimona, the operations there, as well as related efforts in the United States, are among the newest and strongest clues suggesting that the virus was designed as an American-Israeli project to sabotage the Iranian program.

***
Officially, neither American nor Israeli officials will even utter the name of the malicious computer program, much less describe any role in designing it.

But Israeli officials grin widely when asked about its effects. Mr. Obama’s chief strategist for combating weapons of mass destruction, Gary Samore, sidestepped a Stuxnet question at a recent conference about Iran, but added with a smile: “I’m glad to hear they are having troubles with their centrifuge machines, and the U.S. and its allies are doing everything we can to make it more complicated.”

***
By the accounts of a number of computer scientists, nuclear enrichment experts and former officials, the covert race to create Stuxnet was a joint project between the Americans and the Israelis, with some help, knowing or unknowing, from the Germans and the British.

And the Telegraph noted last month:

A showreel played at a retirement party for the head of the Israeli Defence Forces has strengthened claims the country’s security forces were responsible for a cyber attack on the Iranian nuclear programme.

The video of Lieutenant General Gabi Ashkenazi’s operational successes included references to Stuxnet, a computer virus that disrupted the Natanz nuclear enrichment site last year, Ha’aretz reported.

Although Israel has not officially accepted responsibility for the Stuxnet attack, evidence of its role has been mounting since it was first discovered last July.

***
Attributing the source of cyber attacks in notoriously difficult, but security researchers say factors including complexity of the operation, which would have required human sources inside the Iranian nuclear programme, point strongly to the Israeli security forces.

As PC World pointed out last November,

The sophisticated Stuxnet is a “game changer” for companies and governments looking to protect their networks, said Sean McGurk, acting director of the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

***
As of last week, there were still about 44,000 computers infected with Stuxnet worldwide, with about 60 percent of them in Iran, said Dean Turner, director of Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network. About 1,600 of the current infections are in the U.S., he said.

***
“Stuxnet demonstrates that industrial control systems are more vulnerable to cyberattacks than in the past for several reasons, including their increased connectivity to other systems and the Internet,” he said. “Further, as demonstrated by past attacks and incidents involving industrial control systems, the impact on a critical infrastructure could be substantial.”

Indeed, one of the computer experts quoted by the New York Times, German cyber-security expert Ralph Langner, noted in a Ted talk last month that Stuxnet could be used to attack Western nuclear power plants and other types of automated plants:

As Israel National News writes today:
[Langner] went on to describe the risk that Stuxnet could be used to blow up power plants:
“The idea here is not only to fool the operators in the control room. It actually is much more dangerous and aggressive. The idea here is to circumvent a digital safety system…. when they are compromised, then real bad things can happen. Your plant can blow up and and neither your operators nor your safety system will notice it. That’s scary. But it gets worse – and this is very important, what I am going to say. Think about this: this attack is generic. It doesn’t have anything to do with specifics with centrifuges, with uranium enrichment. So it would work as well, for example in a power plant or in an automobile factory. It is generic. And as an attacker you don’t have to deliver this payload by a USB stick, as we saw it in the case of Stuxnet. You could also use conventional worm technology for spreading. Just spread it as wide as possible. And if you do that, what you end up with is a cyberweapon of mass destruction.”

“That’s the consequence that we have to face,” he said, deliberately, while showing a map that marked Western countries (Israel not included) in green. “So unfortunately, the biggest number of targets for such attacks are not in the Middle East. They are in the United States, in Europe and in Japan. So all the green areas, these are your target-rich environments. We have to face the consquences and we better start to prepare right now.”


***
It seems possible that he thinks Israel could use the worm against Western targets. Why the German consultant thinks Israel would want to do this, one can only speculate.

***

In a correspondence with cyber-security firm Symantec some six months ago, Langner named a “hacker underground” as the possible threat:
“You fail to understand that the hacker underground has been studying control systems for years without any success. You fail to understand that this community will eagerly dismantle Stuxnet as a blueprint for how to cyber-attack installations from the cookie plant next door to power plants.”

***

The New York Times recently reported that the Stuxnet virus could possibly still be infecting Iranian systems and that it may unleash additional havoc on new targets.

Has Stuxnet Already Caused Damage Outside Of Iran?

Since the Japanese earthquake, Michael Rivero has posted hundreds of articles arguing that the Stuxnet virus has “gotten loose” and attacked other nuclear power plants outside of Iran.The former editor of the Japan Times – Yoichi Shimatsu – writes:

Tepco engineers suggested that the electric power inside the plant was knocked out by something other than the tsunami. I have pointed to this possibility early on, that the quake and control disruptions could have made the control computers vulnerable to the Stuxnet virus.

According to Yomiuri, Stuxnet was in Japan as of October of 2010. However, I find it hard to believe that it was not the massive earthquake and the enormous tsunami which knocked out the power (although I suppose a virus could have exacerbated the damage).

There have been a lot of strange stories about unexplained nuclear power plant shutdowns. For example, as Fox News reported last week:

A nuclear reactor at Plant Vogtle in eastern Georgia has been taken out of service until authorities determine why it unexpectedly shut down.

I have no idea whether or not the shutdowns were caused by Stuxnet accidentally spreading to other reactors, instead of just hitting its intended target: Iran.

But at the very least, the virus created by the U.S. and Israel to slow down Iran’s nuclear program has opened a “Pandora’s box” which leaves our nuclear plants and other sensitive facilities open to attacks by hostile governments or rogue hackers.
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

Revealing the real motive behind the so-called foreign aid Dr Coleman tells us: “One needs to have a clear understanding of just why the fake ‘environmentalist movement’, established and financially supported by the Club of Rome’, was called upon to wage a war against nuclear energy—with nuclear energy generating electricity at cheap rates and in abundant supplies, third world countries would gradually become independent of US and IMF aid and begin to assert their sovereignty.  Dependence on foreign aid actually keeps other countries in servitude of the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR)”.

Dr Coleman further tells us that the people of the aid receiving countries receive very little of the aid money; it usually ends up in the pockets of the leaders wielding power, who allow the natural resources and raw material of their countries to be savagely looted by the IMF.

NB: Greenpeace is used by nwo to help perpetuate this myth.

Fuel Reprocessing
The Nation - official newspaper of One Nation

Volume 5, edition 9

    "There has been many lies circulated about decay life. However from confidential information I had before retiring, this decay life had been reduced from years down to weeks and maybe now hours."

Monday 15th August 05: The ABC 'Four Corners' programme on the electricity generation industry was the usual well-orchestrated litany of lies and half-truths which the CFR's influenced Peter Garret circulates on this topic. The programme was in fact a beat up to promote the Kyoto scam, and the lie about harmless carbon dioxide that is essential for plant life.  

The real deadly by-product of fossil fuel power generation is sulphur dioxide, which kills plant life (forests) and does not decay.

The ABC showed only the older side of the industry, highlighting the by-product storage from it, maybe this was intentional or maybe its because the industry no longer makes its latest technology public. The truth is, with new reactor technology and reprocessing, what little is left is encapsulated in the small slug shown above [approx 6" diameter] with final decay life now being reduced to a minimum.

What is not clearly understood is that the CFR, through their foundations, fund Greenpeace and other anti-nuclear groups as they see nuclear power as the biggest threat to their control over the price of energy (oil). Over 40% of household income in North America is spent on oil just to keep warm in the winter. Their control of the media is used to promote the lie of shortages to justify their greed for price increases, this is apparent when you go to fill up at the fuel pump.

Through their control of the IMF it has now been revealed that a 10% slush fund is available to control our two party system of government. This has resulted in the dismantling of the National Energy Research Development Corporation and the sell out of the control of our vast energy resources to foreign control. OPEC pricing, excise taxes and GST give us the highest domestic fuel prices of all of the fuel exporting countries. Unlike the Arab OPEC countries where fuel is only a few cents a litre, our government exploits us to further CFR globalist greed.

Lets examine the lies about the prospect of a nuclear waste dump in Australia. To start with, there is no such thing as waste in the nuclear industry, spent fuel is in storage waiting reprocessing. With the older reactors it was not possible to fully recycle all the fuel. This resulted in this minute amount needing to be disposed. To this end the Australian National University developed the Synroc process that encapsulates this material into a small disc that can be held in your hand. For safety it is normally buried in an area of safe stable earth structure where it can be left to decay back to a harmless state.

There has been many lies circulated about decay life. However from confidential information I had before retiring, this decay life had been reduced from years down to weeks and maybe now hours.

The latest reactors coming into service are far more efficient than the older ones, especially those operating in the old eastern block communist countries. The Fast Breeder types recycle spent fuel and are the closest thing to a complete renewable energy cycle.

The reprocessing of nuclear fuel is worth $ billions, however control over the complete fuel cycle is worth $ trillions. Australia has over 40% of the world's known supplies of uranium. By mining and enriching it, then producing fuel rods for lease to the world's nuclear power stations on condition the spent fuel is returned to us for reprocessing, not only gives us control over the complete nuclear cycle it is also worth more than all the Arab oil combined. There are now over 441 nuclear power stations operating around the world in about 37 countries with another 72 on the way. Nuclear power drives most modern navies and space vehicles, and it will eventually power most shipping and supply water via desalination plants. Australia has the resources, the knowledge and even the equipment to undertake such a project, this I can assure you of as I did play a part in obtaining it.

Australia should export more uranium according to the Resources Minister Ian MacFarlane in responding to new that the Labor Party backed the idea of increasing sales to Communist China. However what he failed to mention is that uranium should not be exported as yellow cake, it should be processed here to fuel rods and then leased on condition that the spent rods are returned for reprocessing.

This then provides us with complete control, currently there is only the useless non-proliferation agreement that was drawn up by the Rockefellers to protect their oil interest from competition.

The choice is simple, we can go forward and become one of the wealthy countries and at the same time play our part in defusing explosive world situation which are all caused by perceived shortages of energy. The other alternative is to believe all the lies and propaganda of the CFR and keep giving away our resources and jobs, increasing our debt until we eventually loose control of our country.

Remember it is all about the struggle for power, organisations that are powerful enough to dispose of a prime minister and use their slush funds to buy others, will do all in their power to retain control of Australia.

The Assault on Iran's Right to Nuclear Energy

Former British MI6 intelligence agent Dr. John Coleman writes,

    One needs to have a clear understanding of just why it is that nuclear power is so hated all over the world, and why the fake "environmentalist" movement, established and financially supported by the Club of Rome, was called upon to wage war on nuclear energy. With nuclear energy generating electricity in cheap and abundant supplies, Third World countries would gradually become independent of U.S. foreign aid and begin to assert their sovereignty. Nuclear generated electricity is THE key to bringing Third World countries out of their backward state.1

The United States and Russia "invaded Yugoslavia and seized that country's nuclear energy plant stockpiles" under this same motivation.2 Part of the globalist, criminal agenda of most Western leaders is keeping Third World nations - especially those who stray from their control mechanisms - from become independent, industrialized nations. The World Bank does so with their economic schemes, and the United Nations does with nuclear non-proliferation.

Imam Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, condemned weapons of mass destruction and specifically nuclear weapons:

    If they continue to make huge atomic weapons and so forth, the world may be pushed into destruction and the major loss will afflict the nations. Everybody, where he is, the writers, intellectuals and scholars and scientists throughout the world should enlighten the people of this danger, so that the masses of people will standup vis-à-vis these two powers themselves and prevent the proliferation of these arms.

According to religinous decree (Fatwa) issued by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, nuclear weapons are considered prohibited and against the Islamic Law.2

Irani President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly made it clear that Iran is pursuing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, which it has the right to do under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).3

He has been backed up in these statements by Algerian Prime Minister Abdelaziz Belkhadem. “Based on the treaty," Belkhadem says, "the NPT signatories may not be deprived of their right to make peaceful use of nuclear technology."4

Uric Atynbayev, Kazakhstan’s ambassador in Tehran, has also expressed support for Iran's nuclear program, saying that Iran is opposed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons and intends to use nuclear technology only for peaceful purposes.5

Irani Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki made the point that "Countries using state-of-the-art nuclear weapons are not in a position to deprive other countries of peaceful nuclear technology."6

Kuwaiti National Security Agency chief Sheikh Ahmad Fahd Al-Sabah also said that Iran has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, adding, "We however oppose any use of nuclear technology for inhuman purposes in the Middle East region."

The Kuwait Times reported on June 4, 2007,

    Kuwait last month formed an emergency team to prepare contingency plans for any possible outbreak of Iran-US hostilities over Tehran's nuclear drive, which Washington suspects is a cover for efforts to build the atomic bomb. Sheikh Ahmad said the preparations were "simply precautionary measures". The United States on Saturday called on the international community for stronger sanctions against Iran for refusing to suspend nuclear enrichment.7

The United Nations Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) states in Article IV,

    Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.

It even goes as far as to say,

    All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world.8

The UN's own treaty reinforces Dr. Coleman's assertion that "with nuclear energy generating electricity in cheap and abundant supplies, Third World countries would gradually become independent of U.S. foreign aid and begin to assert their sovereignty." The NPT, which has been ratified by more nations (187) than any other arms treaty, actually encourages developed nations to support nuclear development in developing nations.9

"Iran is legally entitled to enrichment for civilian purposes as a signatory to the NPT," writes the Tehran Times. Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA, Ali-Asghar Soltanieh told the Times, Tehran will "not leave unanswered" any measure meant to increase the pressure on Iran and impose sanctions on the country through UN Security Council resolutions "which have no technical or legal justification."10

"Do you think the Iranian nation will beg for reaching its nuclear rights so that bullying powers will accept this?" asked Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. "No, this is not the spirit of a free and independent nation."

Iran will continue to pursue nuclear enrichment for civilian electricy, and the United States must stop pressing sanctions based on their "suspicions."

Every piece of information this writer has read in his research contains no mention of Iranian officials regarding nuclear weapons, only nuclear power for the peaceful purpose of economic development. Yet, almost every Western mainstream media report pairs the words "nuclear weapons" with the Iranian government repeatedly. The Bush administration and the broadcast media that continue to support it drive discussion of "Iran's nuclear weapons program."11

No direct evidence of a nuclear weapons program in Iran exists. The only evidence has so far been cited by the media and government is claims by the IAEA that it "is unable to certify that Iran’s program is peaceful..."

    Even after three years of inspections and negotiations, several questions remain unanswered, such as the Iranian nuclear program’s connections to A.Q. Khan, the Pakistani weapons scientist who operated an international black market for nuclear technologies...

    Iran has not cooperated fully with the IAEA -- Iran has refused to allow IAEA to interview key individuals and to provide complete documentation on its nuclear program...

    Iran’s leaders continue to acquire the material, equipment, and expertise to produce nuclear weapons -- Schulte said that the IAEA has reported that Iran has enough uranium hexafluoride to produce 10 nuclear weapons. The IAEA also has reported that Iran has started enriching the material – a crucial step to weapons production.12

The nuclear weapons outcry is based on suspicions. It is accompanied with mistranslated media reports of President Ahmadinejad threatening Israel and accusations that the Irani government arming terrorists and insurgents in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan. These statements are not backed up with supporting evidence, but are brief statements made on the television screen by members of the Bush adminstration and other "experts." They resemble the statements made about Iraq before the war, which have since been proven false and cited in calls for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. They are propaganda tools being used by the establishment as they Provoke War with Iran.

For the U.S., U.N. and other powers to have any hope of controlling every nation in the world and reaching their ultimate goal of a New World Order, they must hault the industrial and economic development of Iran through its nuclear program. Iran is not declared an enemy for developing nuclear weapons, but for developing a self-sufficient economy.

Martin Luther King said, "An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The same goes for sovereignty, as the oppression of Iran is part of a Globalist movement to remove the sovereignty of every nation in the world.
The Iranian Mission to the UN, "Looking for Leadership"

This critical letter was written to The New York Times in response to an op-ed that called for "a full-court sanctions press from the US, the European Union and Russia" against Iran for its nuclear program:

Re “Looking for Leadership“ (editorial, June 7):

Your call for a “full-court sanctions press“ on Iran for refusing to forfeit its legal right to an independent nuclear fuel cycle fully monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency is misguided.

Iran has no nuclear weapons ambitions or programs that it would abandon under external pressure. The misguided path of illegal, coercive sanctions will only escalate the tensions and worsen the global perception of a hypocritical double standard aimed at depriving Iran of the rights enjoyed by other nations.

Fortunately, the vast majority of the world community, including the developing nations of the nonaligned movement and the member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, have recognized Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear technology. The US, on the other hand, has already failed a critical test of global leadership by its coercive, discriminatory policies toward Iran and the Islamic world.

Other G-8 states should not emulate the US and thus allow the misuse of international forums to perpetuate its failed approach toward such issues.

Exelon to Buy Constellation for $7.9 Billion
http://www.cnbc.com/id/42788463

Power company Exelon is to buy rival Constellation Energy for $7.90 billion, the latest in a series of deals aimed at consolidating the fragmented industry.

Out the Door: Exelon Leaves Chamber of Commerce over Climate Policy
http://blogs.wsj.com/environmentalcapital/2009/09/28/out-the-door-exelon-leaves-chamber-of-commerce-over-climate-policy/
By Keith Johnson September 28, 2009, 1:05 PM ET

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s opposition to climate-change legislation has cost it another member. Exelon, one of the biggest utilities in the U.S., said this morning it will leave the business lobby because of the latter’s increasingly strident opposition to climate legislation. The announcement came as chairman and chief executive John Rowe spoke to the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy about the importance of jumpstarting investment in energy efficiency. The company said in a press release: Exelon is so committed to climate legislation that Rowe announced during today’s speech that Exelon will not be renewing its membership in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce due to the organization’s opposition to climate legislation. Mr. Rowe stressed the need for a cap-and-trade program that would give power companies an economic incentive to change the electricity business: “The carbon-based free lunch is over. But while we can’t fix our climate problems for free, the price signal sent through a cap-and-trade system will drive low-carbon investments in the most inexpensive and efficient way possible,” said Rowe. “Putting a price on carbon is essential, because it will force us to do the cheapest things, like energy efficiency, first.” Exelon’s departure comes on the heels of two other defections from the Chamber: California’s PG&E was first out the door, specifically citing the Chamber of Commerce’s recent call for a “Scopes Monkey Trial” for climate change. That was followed by New Mexico’s PNM, which like Exelon, will let its membership lapse at the end of the year.

'Hi Saty. Nice, you hit on it..! Thanks.
            I'm repeating myself but its in line with exactly what you posted.Most people are in the belief that a global catastrophe will be a nuclear war, some madman pushes the button hype, Hollywood's been making films about this concept for decades and continue to, the imagery has been implanted.
           The elites don'tt want to eradicate all life, just the majority of us worthless human beings. Your posts are excellant, the demigods have funded this atomic energy from day,w/ our money, there are 140 in the USA, WHY, they are not cheap in fact, the daily running is a nightmare financially,the cost of their construction was more than the cost of Vietnam and NASA space probes combined, the waste alone is a horror show, and on and on, the facility's are old and being fined daily for safety infractions. So whats the PLAN.
          Bottom line, the masters on high don't want the earth destroyed w/ nuke warfare, they are clever have the means to accomplish depopulation with out it. 1, a dependence was created f/nuke energy, without it its back to the dark ages,they controll the facility's and as we know they can bring on a disaster...Saty I'll stop ranting , thanks for this post.

Owners of Nine Mile Point Unit 1 probing Monday night's automatic shut down
http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2011/05/post_418.html

Published: Tuesday, May 03, 2011, 10:31 AM     Updated: Tuesday, May 03, 2011, 10:58 AM

Scriba, NY – The owners of the Nine Mile Point Unit 1 this morning are trying to figure out why the recently refueled nuclear reactor automatically shut down at 8:51 p.m. Monday.
The plant responded according to design and automatically shut down with all rods that control the nuclear reaction fully inserting into the reactor, Constellation Energy Nuclear Group said this morning.

"The plant is in a safe and stable condition," the company said in a news release.  The reactor restarted April 19 after being out of service for maintenance and refueling.

“We’re working to identify the cause of the shutdown and to complete any repairs that are necessary to return the unit to service safely and reliably,” said Jill Lyon, speaking for Constellation.  Lyon, citing business reasons, would not comment on when the reactor is expected to return to service.

Nuclear power plants are designed to automatically shut down in response to certain indications and conditions, the company said.  Nine Mile Unit 1 had been operating at 47 percent power when the shutdown occurred on Monday night.

Unit 1 Operators had lowered reactor power on April 26 based on indications within the feedwater system. The plant had been operating at reduced levels while equipment repairs were in progress, the company said.

ATLANTA — A nuclear reactor at Plant Vogtle in eastern Georgia has been taken out of service until authorities determine why it unexpectedly shut down.

The Atlanta-based Southern Co. reported Thursday that the Unit 1 reactor at Plant Vogtle automatically shut down Wednesday evening. The shutdown procedure, called a scram, was completed without incident.

Nuclear reactors are designed to shut down if automatic monitoring systems detect conditions that could be unsafe. Southern Co. spokesman Alyson Fuqua said it was not immediately clear what prompted the shutdown. No problems have been reported.

Fuqua said the shutdown was apparently triggered by equipment related to an electrical turbine. The company was not certain when the reactor would start producing power again.

Between Two Ages by Zbigniew Brzezinski

Brzezinski wrote in Between Two Ages- America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, (1970) p 57:


“As one specialist noted, ‘By the year 2018,

technology will make available  to the leaders of the major nations, a variety of techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need to be appraised.

One nation may attack a competitor covertly by bacteriological means,

thoroughly weakening the population (though with a minimum of fatalities) before taking over with its own armed forces.  

Alternatively, techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm….”

as I wrote that last post I was thinking that it could be feedwater issue and I went and looked at the article and it was..... they were only at 47% power, it takes a good deal of time to get back to full power after a refuel, a multitude of tests need to be performed, and bearings in feedwater pumps can be suspect... if they had enough feedwater loss say complete bearing failure in the feedwater pumps that could definitely auto scram the reactor....

AUTOMATIC REACTOR SCRAM

"Nine Mile Point Unit 1 experienced an automatic RPS actuation (scram) on Monday, May 02, 2011 at 2051. Cause of the RPS actuation is not understood at this time. All control rods inserted to position 00. N1-EOP-2 entered due to low reactor water level following trip (expected plant response). Reactor pressure stabilized 800 to 1000 psig, reactor water level restored and maintained 53 to 95 inches. Automatic initiation of the High Pressure Coolant Injection system occurred following plant trip (normal actuation)."

The reactor is stable in Hot Shutdown. The licensee characterized the scram as uncomplicated. All rods fully inserted, normal feed water is supplying the reactor with decay heat being removed to the condenser. The unit is in a normal shutdown electrical lineup and the scram had no impact on Unit 2. All systems functioned as required. The unit was operating at 47% power at the time of the event due to feed pump maintenance.

The licensee does not have a first-out indication for the reactor scram and is still investigating the cause of the scram.

The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified.

It appears to be FeedWater IMO.........

All of these nuclear plants are run on false flag enabled SCADA controls:
_______________________________________________________

Interfacing GE's Mark System with DCS/SCADA

We have Mark IV,Mark V,Mark VI and Mark VIe system at some locations, unfortunately old systems have not been upgraded to Mark IVe yet.

Now, We want to get data from all these systems using MatrikonOPC Server/client at high speed preferably TCP/IP

I am putting my queries below

1. How is this possible to get data from all these legacy as well as latest GE system at a time.

2. The data will not only be used for monitoring but control as well from DCS/SCADA system. how this control will be taken care of?

3. At few locations, we have some "enumerated data type" signals, how this can be handled?

Does anyone know more details about this enumerated data type?

Our DCS vendor supports only 2 modifier conditions for one single tag(enumerated data type). but we have 25 modifier conditions for a tag Status_fld. How to handle this situation?

regards,
Rahul
_______________________________________________________
Rahul,

To my knowledge, there is no OPC package available to communicate directly with a Mark IV.

Matrikon has an OPC Server that can communicate with a Mark V and one that can communicate with a Mark VI; that is clear from their website. I believe they probably have a Mark VIe product under development (or they should be developing one).

As for enumerated data states, if you look at how enumerated data states are "determined" in sequencing/application code, you will see they are primarily derived from logic signals. It's conceivable you could use some means to monitor logic states to develop your own enumerated data.

One advertiser here at control.com, CSE Engineering, Inc., has a product that can communicate directly with some Mark IVs (if the Mark IV has a remote operator interface, called either a <D> or a <C.R>), then they can provide an <ITC> HMI that can send commands to and receive data from the Mark IV. I believe that product also has OPC capability. But, it's an awful lot of money to spend on an aging control system.

When are we going to get that speed/frequency and Load Gear nameplate data from the units at your site?

Hello CSA,

I also contacted Matrikon and they said that, The MatrikonOPC Server for MarkV/VI(GSM) will communicate with the MarkV, MarkVI, and the Mark VIe. Though for MarkVie -The client will need to have GE install the GSM components on the MarkVie.

They don't have any solution for Mark IV system

Enumerated data type - yes, i checked the sequencing code and they are logic signals only with state 0&1.

I would like to know more about this enumerated data types, i am not able to get clear picture about this,

We are in touch with DCS vendor to sort this out.

Ok, i will check with CSE Engineering for that Mark IV option, and already looking and working for some other options..

I still feel Upgrade of Mark IV system is the best option, provided client is ready to spend even bigger amount.

Regards,
Rahul

The Mark IV is a fine system, like all control systems it has it's idiosyncrasies. But, if you want to interface it to other systems, your options are pretty limited. That's just a fact of life. And those options can be pretty expensive considering, as you have noted, it is time for an upgrade anyway.

Sounds like it's really up to your Customer to decide what they want to do.

Now, if the Mark IV has MODBUS capability (NOT DATA DUMP--MODBUS), then you could try that. Any control system that could speak MODBUS and interface with OPC could do that. But, if you want full control and data options, you should think about something else.

Of course, there's going to be a lot of work involved in setting up the MODBUS link, and there are no time tags.

Your choices are what they are. And the Customer has whatever monies they have, or don't. They can want whatever they want; they just have to be able to pay for it.

Again, the options for Mark IV are limited. And they cost money; money that could be spent towards upgrading to Mark VIe now instead of later.

Best of luck!

EDMONTON, AB. October 22, 2007

MatrikonOPC is pleased to announce the release of the MatrikonOPC Server for GE Mark V Direct. Unlike other OPC Servers on the market today, the MatrikonOPC Server for GE Mark V provides a high performance, TCI-independent link to the Mark V and is capable of sub-second scan rates with a very user friendly configuration.

The economic and performance benefits that the MatrikonOPC Server for GE Mark V offers are very impressive. The OPC Server’s robust ability to provide high sample rate data from a turbine controller enables users to complete more accurate calculations and ultimately leads to a more efficiently tuned turbine. A more efficiently, and higher functioning turbine, means more energy output while using less energy to generate a highly tuned rotation.

The benefits of the MatrikonOPC Server GE Mark V Direct are:

# Freedom of choice of HMI vendor selection

# Auto detection of compatible ARCNET cards

# Automatic configuration of controller and tag lists using configuration files present in the TCI PC.

# High performance link capable of transferring many tags at sub-second update rates.

# Access to all tags in the MarkV

# OPC tags containing valuable MarkV controller load and status information.

Fail. Not ICSJWG, but me. There were a lot of great presentations today, and I only managed to see 1.5 and give my own. One of the main benefits of ICSJWG is the crowd it draws. There are clients, vendors, gov types and lots of old friends to talk to. Unfortunately that kept me from most of the presentations on Day 2.

I did have a chance to talk with a number of the presenters and see the Powerpoints so here is what I saw or learned.

Kevin Hemsley of ICS-CERT gave a presentation that was helpful and disappointing at the same time. He went into some detail on his perspective of dealings with Luigi Auriemma, and since I have had some emails from Luigi it was interesting to hear the other side. ICS-CERT and Luigi have communicated a number of times over the past six months, but there has been no meeting of the minds. Likely causes are different goals and language issues.

I finally had my chance to publicly ask ICS-CERT about their Stuxnet handling. There was no real answer, as expected, except they had learned a lot from Stuxnet. This is really the key. When the next Stuxnet type malicious exploit in the wild occurs, will ICS-CERT be ready and respond better? The handling flowcharts they presented covered a coordinated disclosure and non-coordinated/0day. ICS-CERT is doing a good job of implementing these processes, especially this year.

They did not yet have a flowchart or handling process for the case where we learn of a vuln through widespread or targeted actual exploitations. There was a good idea, not mine, that after ICS-CERT has created this third process they should run Stuxnet through it to see if the process would have worked.

I provided a presentation on Quickdraw, Portaledge and Bandolier research results. Nothing new to loyal blog readers, but we are always surprised at how many people don’t know about these projects. Outreach continues.

Look out for SPIDERS – Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security. We will blog on this when we get the presentation, but they have deployed sensors across a variety of networks and systems to collect data for defensive efforts.

Ernie Rakaczky and Paul Forney of Invensys presented on the Security Development Lifecycle for Control Systems. The presentation talked about creating a Cyber Security Culture during development, execution/FAT/SAT, and throughout the deployed system life cycle. Offline Ernie was telling me that the SDL was actually reducing elapsed development time because fewer problems were making it to QA. They were being caught earlier. Another way to look at this is the 10% additional effort for the SDL results in a more accurate development schedule. Lots of statistics and lessons learned here and probably worth a podcast segment.

We have not been shy to call out vendors when they fail, but there is good news out there with selected vendor vulnerability handling and SDL work. They tend to go hand in hand. Unfortunately the distribution of vendor actions tends to be bi-modal with some vendors making significant progress and others still in denial. Sometimes it can happen in the same company with bimodal divisional responses.

Nate Kube presented on the Achilles Practice Certification efforts on the WIB standard and certification. We have been critical of the loose structure around this effort, and the overstatement of what it was. So it was encouraging to see these documents have been submitted as an IEC work item, details to follow. They will force a level of analysis and rigor that was missing.

Thanks to DHS for continuing to put on this event.

The semi-annual Industrial Control System Joint Working Group Conference is traditionally the best place to catch up with everyone in the ICS Security community. DHS puts on a solid program, and there is a certain feeling you need to be here even though there have been little non-conference results from ICSJWG or its predecessor PCSF. Make sure to follow our tweets on day two @digitalbond.

Here’s what happened on day one:

Marty Edwards, the new Director of DHS Control System Security Program, started the day with a low key discussion of the evolution of control systems. It lacked a real call for action or compelling point, but it did clearly demonstrate Marty’s experience working in ICS. I believe he is the first person in that role that comes from the ICS world.

My question for Marty and ICSJWG is how do they measure success with ICSJWG. Is it by number of people attending the semi-annual events? Some useful products coming out of the Working Groups? Measureable increase in information sharing? At PCSF, the annual conference became the main focus and measure of success, but I think DHS has bigger goals and measures for ICSJWG.

Stephan Parker from EnergySec/NESCO provided the best summary I have heard on what NESCO wants to accomplish. NESCO is a bottom up effort to Engage, Equip and Empower the energy sector owner/operations. Engage so far has been attending events, voice of the industry meetings and a variety of other outreach efforts.

Equip was the most interesting with three programs highlighted. The Repository of Open Source Security Solutions for the Energy Sector (ROS²ES) was new to me. NESCO is going to be funding this effort both to create the repository and encourage contributions. They are also focusing on Workforce Development / Training with the NESCO Academy program, which adds to a growing ICS Security training options. The last effort was information sharing that was covered in general terms.

Darren Highfill, representing Southern California Edison, spoke about Smart Grid security efforts through the UCA International User Group and ASAP-SG. ASAP-SG has had success by industry/government funding the initial draft of security profiles that are then handed off to standards and guideline groups for review, comment and revisions. This has dramatically sped up the cycle time for document development and approval. There are security profiles out or almost out for AMI, 3rd Party Data Access, Distribution Management and Synchrophasor Management.

One other note, the Embedded System Security Task Force in the UCAIUG may have some information that would be helpful for PLC/RTU/field device security. Similarly this Task Force should be leveraging the work that ISAsecure has done on embedded system security certification.

Joel Langill of SCADAhacker covered the Luigi vulnerabilities in general and a 7-Techs command execution vulnerability. He tried a live demo that sort of worked, but did a good job of showing the exploit code loading a program, how Metasploit payloads are built and run, and discussions on what an attacker can do. The combination of the demo not working and the low quality projector made this presentation much less than it could have been, but it was still well received. UPDATE: The demo was successfully completed at lunch and was well received.

The morning finished with a presentation from Patrick Beggs from NCCIC and reports from three Subgroups. The Subgroups continue to flounder, or maybe are starting to founder. The Roadmap subgroup did issue the first deliverable and is the group making progress. The Workforce Development subgroup is doing a reboot and the Vendor subgroup continues to talk about the charter. The Vendor subgroup is the most disappointing because it had momentum at PCSF. ICSJWG was complaining that it is not diverse enough with non-vendor members, but what made it effective in PCSF was vendors were able to work through common issues. In general, the ICSJWG subgroups continue to disappoint and don’t get the participation that other ICS security efforts get.
Afternoon

The afternoon and the remainder of ICSJWG has three presentation tracks. It’s a sign of a good agenda that there are often two talks at the same time people want to attend. I got sidetracked with some meetings – - another benefit of ICSJWG is you can meet with clients, partners, vendors … all in one place, so I was only able to attend 2.5 of the sessions.

David Sawin provided an informative, if not a bit scary, talk about DHS work on securing the Transportation sector. There are a lot of sub-sectors here, including pipeline, and many of them are just beginning to address SCADA security. They have done a number of inventory or surveying of systems and are working with some of the main vendors, but little progress in deployed systems to date.

Using rail as an example, they are focused on trying to secure Positive Train Control. David said there were three main vendors in this field, and they are talking to all three. This is a good issue to start with, but only one of many aspects that need securing in rail.

Transportation is beginning its own Roadmap. As you can see, Roadmaps are very popular now in DHS. There were a lot of interesting tidbits in the talk. For example, pilots are ditching their flight bags for electronic flight bags the size of a cell phone that plug into the plane’s information systems.

There was an update from ISAsecure, but it was mostly the same information in our podcast and blogs. We are still awaiting the first ISAsecure certified PLC. It is coming within months according to the speakers.
Logistic Bullets

    * There were about 250 people at the peak of the day. I’m not sure what DHS expected, but my guess for success was 400.
    * It was a big improvement that the Subgroup reports were limited in number and to 10 minutes. Until there are significant results they shouldn’t get much program time. The Subgroups met on Monday.
    * They really needed a stage or something that raised the speaker with the flat, ballroom style venue.
    * The projector was low quality and screen was small which made the Langill demo less effective.
    * The energy level at the beginning needed to be higher. First couple of presentations need to have big ideas powerfully presented to set the tone.

Now I see why they banned Thorium; to have reactors capable of causing extermination should they be destroyed.
