Greatest disasters and failures are never attributable to root causes beyond the control or limits of ordinary people.


Greatest adversities or failures are seldom traceable to causes which are never under the control of normal means in terms of cost viability or resources or competencies.
the new york black outs were never because the people in charge were not technically competent or did not right level of attitude for jobs they were in but because of the absence of or lack of focussed attention to very known and controllable features of transmission lines, or system.
In one ofhe of the cases the tripping relay was set lower than specified. It was not an action much beyond the technical capability or resources of the maintainance engineer at the right level. but the lack of focussed attention casused the wrong tripping leading to black outs.
In yet another case the sagging of transmission lines and growing trees reduced the available earth clearances to much below the danger zone causing the tripping of the breaker putting the people to dark days.
\In yet another case the ligthtening caused the tripping of the breaker but the breaker could not reclose on clearance of the fault as the nut found lose prevented the operation of the reclosing mechanism.
The case of the challenger is yet another example. the challenger disaster is traceable to the O rings meant for working as a seal preventing the leakage of liquid fuel was not elastic enough to seal the joint causing the leakage of fuel and the fire it followed.
So is the case with most failures in life or systems.
