You would be amazed, and not necessarily in a good way. I'm not saying there aren't plenty of people who care, but they are fighting a *system* that isn't designed to deploy security best practice in all situations. Bureaucracy will be the death of us all I expect.
Also, whilst I'm not going to go into details (for obvious reasons) you don't have to disable a power station to turn off the power. Plenty of real-world examples of honest mistakes that have taken down large sections of the power grid in various countries.
"That said, IMO anything capable of causing physical harm IRL shouldn't be directly connected to the internet. "
I couldn't agree more, but that isn't the world we currently live in.
