    Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher says energy crisis – no quick fix

    Santos Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher says there is no quick fix to Australia’s energy crisis as power prices skyrocket amid supply shortages.

    “The reality of the situation is… we can’t conjure up new gas,” he said.

    “What’s effectively happened over the last decade as gas resources have been used up and new projects have not been able to come forward and be developed and bring new supply into the market, all the buffer and all the slack in the system has been used up.”

    Mr Gallagher said the options to immediately increase supply were scarce amid the strain of coal fire generator outages and underperforming renewables.

    Daniel J. Flynn:

    Why Nineteen Eighty-Four still matters

    If so many of the catchphrases from George Orwell’s dystopian classic seem cliched today, it’s because there is endless fodder for their application. And while not everything he feared came true, Orwell’s greatness lies not in predicting the future but in changing it.

    June 8 marks the anniversary of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. That a greater gap separates us from 1984 than 1984 from Nineteen-Eighty Four’s 1949 publication staggers.

    A judge said that a man divorced his wife for cooking him instant noodles every day for every meal.

    During a news conference, ML Raghunath, a principal district and sessions court judge in India, presented what he called a “Maggi Case,” according to Insider.

    “The husband said his wife did not know how to prepare any food other than Maggi noodles. It was noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” Raghunath said. “He complained that his wife went to the provision store and brought only instant noodles.”

    Poor old self-beclowning Steve.
    He jumps to the conclusion that Old Bloke’s claim about Prince Philip’s climate sceptic comments is false – see Steve trickler says:
    June 8, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    Then, when his cognitive failure is pointed out he demands evidence – see Steve trickler says:
    June 8, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Steve, the time to think about evidence is before you make a BIIIIIG statement based on the assumption that another commenter is wrong.
    But, since you ask, here’s one of the first things that popped up on the internet when I searched for the evidence. It tells how Prince Philip tried to get Ian Plimer a speaking gig at the Royal Society, but the squibs there cancelled the invite. If that’s not explicitly bucking the climate narrative, what is?

    Now, the very same retard is saying that “we didn’t know the risk” at the time.
    Bullsh1t.
    Only if you’re a retard.
    Yours truly was discussing the National Road Toll* (driving risk) vs the Couf, at the time.
    *The other retard, who was trying to guilt Struth over attending gigs during the Couf, now uses the very same argument – you see how (former) Leftists never change their spots, always wise in hindsight – that’s NOT how risk management works.

    So, post running around like Chicken Littles with their heads cut off, p1ssing their beds, it’s all now “risk management” – until the next threat on the horizon – rinse and repeat.

    The risk management controls that folks said that gutless Morisson should have implemented ASAP was closing the borders in January 2020 – which would have kept the Wuhan Chinese students out (of “low Couf” Canberra, bulls1t on stilts).

    Farr’s Law is all about control measures (risk management) and how they mitigate the epidemic’s effect.

Federal minister Chris Bowen said there was a “real spirit of consensus in the room” at yesterday’s emergency talks and blamed the energy crisis on the previous government failing to see the benefits of renewables.
