First things first...
Miranda Devine is NOT a trusted source. She has an opinion column. Think of her as the love child of Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh. With a lobotomy.
They haven’t learned the lesson from SA’s extreme green experiment with renewable energy that has produced nothing but crippling blackouts and the highest electricity prices in the world.
No - it was a mixture of safety measures and failure of the AEMO - who were desperate to point the finger at anyone else.
In September last year some of the strongest winds in 50 years knocked down high voltage power pylons. The AEMO auto safety system kicked in and shut everything down in order to protect the network and prevent South Australians from being electrocuted - it was that serious.
The AEMO report: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-28/wind-farm-settings-to-blame-for-sa-blackout-aemo-says/8389920 itself says it was the control settings that failed, not the wind farms themselves.
You may have also noted that it was "silly Labor Premiers", as opposed to just "silly Premiers", who jumped on board the Cereal Train. Perhaps this is because she is a conservative columnist and strong Liberal advocate.
It is also worth noting that the more controversial her column, the more clicks she gets and the more money the Daily Telegraph gets in advertising revenue.
I've vented my spleen about Miranda in this forum before. But I cannot do it as well as the master.
Or if you have more time...
I value intelligent debate, but Miranda Devine does not qualify.
