Morgan joins 60 Minutes to discuss the electric grid's vulnerabilities

Hamerschlag University Professor Granger Morgan was featured on a recent edition of 60 Minutes discussing the United States' electric grid, its vulnerabilites, and challenges it may face in the future. During the interview, Morgan illustrates the grid's susceptibility by pointing out past incidents where electric grids have been targeted by terrorist organizations. Morgan argues that the grid needs to become more resilient to stave off these vulnerabilites, but without any one organization in charge of the grid's resilience this could prove to be challenging.
