WHERE did Koskinen say "prepare for 3 weeks of Electrical outage" to the states?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

other than the thread below from Candadian Y2K.

Does anyone have a SOURCE for the info that Koskinen has been recommending the states to factor a 3 week electrical outage into their contingency plans?

I believe that is what he told the folks at the conference in Singapore last winter. He's never said such a thing in public here in the States. I read the transcript of the Singapore address and it was there. No URL for you though.

well.... its closer, its still someone telling someone else that Koskinen said this. (even though it is a State Rep)

btw, in the email that is refered to, Rep Gringly says this:

"...There are facts that the Government doesn't want you to know. Steve Koskinen, the Nations Y2K czar, has instructed each state to prepare their contingency plans to include 18 cities without power for 3 weeks."

What is wrong with the above sentence? (oh I'm just too picky, I'm sure he's a busy guy)

Thanks for the info so far!

Koskinens first name isnt Steve, although I hesitate to mention what it is, cosidering it may be changed to Mud or Hero soon.
