Jumping To Conclusions

Now that the dust is starting to settle in South Australia (as the wind drops) it is possible to see some very red faces.  The reddest of all belongs to state premier Jay (Jackass) Weatherill and the next reddest belongs to No Minister leftie commenter David.

You see, they and all their friends at the ABC and Fairfax thought the state's disastrous black out was caused by high winds damaging the interstate transmission lines on which South Australia reelies for its 'base load' power supply.

Turns out they were flat wrong.  The black out was caused by the near simultaneous shut down of the states numerous wind farms during high wind.  That shut down caused the interstate lines to overload, leading them to shut themselves down to avoid catastrophic damage, some considerable time BEFORE a few high tension pylons were blown over.

There you have it.  It has taken a perfect storm to expose the utter folly of subsidized Greens driven policies.   The state with the highest priced electricity and the second highest unemployment now has the most unreliable electricity supply.

So, what to do about it?

Well, Jay (Jackass) Weatherill is calling a 'renewable energy summit' having given  proposed participants just one day's notice of the momentous event.

Momentous? I hear you ask.

Yes of  course. It is of great moment and singular importance for this dope of a premier to have someone come up with a plausible excuse for his sins of emission.

If he was really smart, he'd announce immediate plans to build a nuclear power generation plant out here on the coast just north of Adelaide.  After all, South Australia has huge reserves of uranium, vast territory suitable for waste disposal and a desperate need for reliable power supply.

But he won't, because he's not smart and like his power supply, he's not very bright.

No he's not you're right there.

However the real dumb bastards are the voters who elected him.

Who are perhaps only exceeded in their dumbness by the voters in Victoria. (I'd include Queensland too except that Campbell Newman was so bad something had to be done)

Not to mention the morons in the NT who all voted the way the Marxist controlled ABC told them to.

And then there's the really dumb ones, dumber than all of those above, in New Zealand, who vote for National but get Green Left policies. And do it again and again.

Look at this tweet from those National imbeciles.

Just useless Green Left imposters.

The Green Left caused South Australia's blackouts, but the opposition can't really make much hay from the issue because like the Nats, they all go along with the alternative energy man caused global warming scam themselves.

Perhaps you could list the last 10 peer reviewed papers you read on the topic and tell us what you learned. What? 10 is too many? How Palinesque. How about listing the last 5 then?

Otherwise you lack all credibility on the topic. And breitbart does not count as a peer reviewed publication. :-)

Adolf, I'll reserve judgement until all the reports are in.

On the topic of nuclear, you may be surprised, but for 15 years I have advocated the building of a chain of nuclear power stations around the coast of Aus. with each one providing power for local consumption, plus a desal plant.

But, gasp, nuclear energy flattened a couple of Jap cities in 1945! We hate nuclear because, well, it can be used to do nasty things to nasty people and that's so, like, unfair and I love whales and dolphins. Stop thinking independently of those in charge or you will be marked for re-education.

David says he has read ten fake peer reviews and they all say that Red and all No Minister are racist. I gave him the list of better quality slurs, but his head is stuck in repeat play.

David, you had almost achieved redemption until I got to the magic words 'desal plant.'
