Entire state of South Australia has power black out because of flawed climate change energy policy

“The September 28 state wide black out is clearly creating challenges to the governments climate change policy initiative which is responsible for these power availability and high energy price debacles and which has jeopardized the power supply of the entire region.” – who would have thunk?!

Sceptics have been rightly warning of the disastrous consequences of the ideological scramble toward renewable (unreliable) energy, driven under green central planning, for many years. And on September 28, the chickens certainly came home to roost with South Australia’s *complete* and total state wide power blackout.

I will be posting more on this on ‘Climatism’ later, including information from a scathing report on the dangerous shift to renewable energy, put out by the Grattan Institute – “Keeping the lights on: lessons from South Australia’s power shock.”

Thoughts go out to those affected by the SA blackout. Hoping services return to normal soon.

Watts Up With That?

Governor Brown has California on same “dark ages” renewable energy path as South Australia

The entire state of South Australia suffered a complete power black out on Wednesday September 28  plugging it’s nearly 1.7 million residents, communities and businesses into darkness.

Loss of available power from transmissions lines feeding the region from other states coupled with South Australia’s ill-considered climate change energy policy of forced shutdown of the states operating coal plants to promote heavy use of renewable energy created this latest power debacle.

Last July the state barely averted energy black outs when reduced outside electrical energy supplies forced huge and costly purchases of needed power to restore electrical system reliability.(http://theconversation.com/south-australias-electricity-price-woes-are-more-due-to-gas-than-wind-62824)

The forced shutdown of operating coal plants and mandated increased use of renewables had significantly increased energy costs to consumers by eliminating production from low cost power plants while increasing…

Uh, oh: Metadata goof fingers Senator Whitehouse in collusion between green groups and Senate Dems. Cover-up follows

“Now we have documentary proof that its members have outsourced their policy-making and speech-writing to the green activists, signing their name to whatever is put in front of them, and using their office however these groups ask,” Horner said in an email.

Shock news – Democrat lawmakers in bed and colluding with environmental extremists, formulating draconian and over-reaching climate policies that are destroying jobs, entire industries and sending electricity prices to “necessarily skyrocket” – in the words of climate activist in chief, Barack Obama.

A cold hard bust for Senator Sheldon Whitehouse et al, colluding with radical eco-extremist, green groups to run the trillion dollar, big government climate agenda.

This is an economic and social scandal of monumental proportions.

However, and yet again, the worst any of these climate colluding radicals will ever be accused of is an excess-of-virtue, in the name of “saving the planet”.

Dangerous times we inhabit with such reckless and dangerous eco-zealots running the ‘free’ world.

Watts Up With That?

From the “you really ought to learn how to use Microsoft Word” department, comes this hilarious boo-boo from a paid green shill lawyer that puts climate conspiracy theorist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse in the spotlight for collusion and accepting legal services in amounts greater than allowed by law. Gosh, where’s John Cook and Stephan Lewandowsky on this?

Senate Dem Report Attacking EPA Critics Traced to Green Pressure Group

A Democratic Senator moved to conceal his apparent behind-the-scenes collaboration with an environmentalist pressure group on Wednesday after inquiries into the group’s role in crafting a report accusing political opponents of doing the bidding of special interests.

A report posted on Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s (D., R.I.) website on Monday accused Environmental Protection Agency critics of being in the thrall of the fossil fuel industry…
