Victoria’s Suicidal 50% Renewable Energy Target Set to Wreck Grid & Drive Power Prices Into Orbit

STOP THESE THINGS

Want to know what a 50% RET does to grid stability and power prices, then look no further than South Australia.

“Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism,” declared the headline, which survived only the Times’ first print edition of August 6. The newspaper’s executive editor, Dean Baquet, later termed it “a f*cking mess” that editors quickly reworked.
