Sky News presenter Chris Kenny says Australia’s energy crisis is a situation of our “deliberate creation”.
“So the nation is in an energy crisis,” Kenny said.
“We are short of gas for domestic use and with global demand rising, it is too expensive, increasing costs for industry and electricity generation.
“And we have too little electricity generation from other sources.
“In most states, we’ve shut down large coal-fired generators, and renewables, of course, are intermittent.
“So prices are skyrocketing, supply has been stretched and our political and business leaders are in a flap.”
