Australia’s Power Grid Groans: Wind Power Obsession Threatens Lives & Livelihoods – STOP THESE THINGS

Vain and dishonest, former Labor PM (and Muppet-in-Chief), Kevin Rudd has a lot to answer for. When his predecessor, Liberal PM, John Howard brought in a renewable energy target in 2001, it was set…

After more than 20 years of governments privatising state-owned electricity assets, it appears that the process is about to be reversed with a ‘nationalisation’ of one of Victoria’s key power generation assets.

While chopping South Australia (population 1.6 million) from the grid from time to time, whenever wind power output collapses on a total and totally unpredictable basis (euphemistically known as ‘islanding’) has a political cost, it will pale into insignificance when 5.8 million Victorians and particularly Melbournians start suffering from mass blackouts and load shedding, like their South Australian counterparts. Victoria, unlike South Australia, still has a very solid industrial and manufacturing base; at least for the time being.
