The lights go out in South Australia
SA is without power for days following extreme weather. Weatherall wishes like hell he really knew how to weather it all .
Some want to blame the wind ,the lightning others the lack of alternative connections;( normaly prevents these disasters) All sorts of stuff. Not science just simple A+B =C stuff
All the most obvious connections are on the net , Up there and lit up like BIG items in the dark stores ready to go off if you dare to try and eat one. Guaranteed to give anyone who tries indigestion . Neither Victoria or South Australia were prepared for this as they hate coal and dare not even talk about it in polite company ----let alone arrange wires etc.listen to reports about real risks and real energy .
Facebook is not only,, awash with solutions to the drama, its leading the charge . The experts are out there everywhere . Even polys have to defend everything they have ever done in the hunt to find the "person responsible" " long as its not me". I just opened my mouth and said something about the idiots in the ...........party and how predictable their behavior is . I did nothing ...Who me?
As usual with these media hunts. its more about point and game scoring than it is restoring food to the failed fridges and rehooking up the solar panels that conveniently don't work at such times . Wind neither
Noone is allowed to say it but the State is waiting for coal to come on line again .
Predictably the accused find fault with the accuser setting up another round of chatter for the evening news ; running there own expensive wastebook on facebook . The gods of sport maybe busy this weekend but so the gods of justice . .
The most "creative" ( perhaps not as it is so easy to find fault with your accuser) take is for believers to just say the latest disaster is due to CC."Take that you deniers" ( sorry but u are not allowed to be a sceptic -- that's so septic )
The light in the mind seems to be missing in all this blame game speculation
This is of course very predictable when you open up government to the market ( incl Greenlabor) the speculators get in get a job -- and you don't know which ones to trust. -es when they can't be seen for dust when they cut the cloth to fit some smaller than required brief . Poor old Tim Flammery has to defend everything .
Tim looks worried. He should be worried. He doesn't know what he is talking about , but people don't get that yet.
Instead of focusing on their environmental issue they meddle with energy and destroy their ability to do anything about the former
