In August 2014 I blogged – “Commonwealth Govt thinking about solving looming Sydney gas shortage with ~2,000 kms of pipeline connecting to North West Shelf”
Two days ago I blogged – “Australia fails again as NT to Qld gas pipeline stymied”
Now the ABC reports on the AEMO concerns – “Gas supply shortage will threaten nation’s power supplies, AEMO forecasts”. PM Turnbull and Energy Minister Frydenberg have been talking the issue all over TV news but I have heard no mention of keeping Hazelwood open. A most basic and feasible step to take.
South Australia grid sheds load last night. SA heatwave forces blackouts to cope with electricity demand, angering Government 8 Feb 2017. Large version my chart
Can our politicians assure us that closing Hazelwood with generation capacity 1,600MW is in Australia’s interests? Remember Victoria has often been running a surplus of 2,000MW supplying power to three other States, NSW, SA and Tas. We should be asking Govt; “what effect will the Hazelwood shutdown have on power prices?” My 27 Jan post.

Brilliant 84 second clip from a very young looking President Bill Clinton talking about immigration in the 1995 State of the Union. Not to be missed.

Global Warming or climate not mentioned in 26 bullet points
Senator Malcolm Roberts from Australia on Breitbart talking to James Delingpole – The Senator speaks off the cuff about Australian politics – well worth a listen.
So PM Turnbull does not get an invite to the Inauguration but Pauline Hanson and her Senators do. Can anybody remember such a magnificent full on diplomatic snub as this?
Remember how Turnbull snubbed Trump by announcing Australia would ratify the “Paris Climate Accord whatever it is dead thing” on exactly the day Donald Trump was elected. Just so telling. But what are the implications for US – Australian relations and policy? Search my blog Trump – Search my blog Darwin
