Power grids existed long before networked-computers came out. Why
would the grid be so vulnerable now? Shouldn't those critical networks
be isolated from outside access altogether?

Secondly, they should be more worried about grid overloads from all the
power source shifting done today. The grids were not designed to
handle that kind of loads and problems like the recent NYC-NE blackout
will occur again.
