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.
