Australia’s energy crisis thanks to ‘policy idiocy’

Australia has killed off reliable power, replaced it with unreliable power and is now wondering why we’re steeped in an energy crisis, says Sky News host Chris Kenny. “The Prime Minister’s answer is to spend tens of billions of dollars more on transmission lines,” Mr Kenny said. “Honestly, that is the triumph of hope over experience, isn’t it. He reckons more of the same will fix the problem that it created.“Once we were the lucky country, then we were the clever country, now we have chosen to abandon our luck and our cleverness.“Nothing is quite so reliable in this space as policy idiocy.”
