Power Crisis Hits Home – Gladesville, Lane Cove blackouts!

THE WEEKLY TIMES SPECIAL EDITORIAL

Homes in Gladesville, Lane Cove, Chatswood and Cherrybrook were among 40,000 homes that lost electric power during Sunday’s near record high January temperature.

This is a result of the failure of State and Federal governments to face the reality of ensuring adequate power generating facilities and succumbing to the madness of renewable sources such as wind and solar.

NSW energy minister Don Harwin had the gall to comment that it was satisfactory considering the circumstances. What absolute nonsense and codswallop.

Instead of blabbering and boasting he should be hanging his head in shame. Along with the rest of the dunderheads in the Berejiklian government who prefer to demolish sports stadiums instead of investing in the basic power needs of the community.
