EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS

Yes, arising from the answer. If, as the minister claims, wind energy was providing adequate generation supply, why on earth was Pelican Point cranked up last night?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER (Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Climate Change) ( 15:13 ): This just goes to show that you can never trust a single word the Liberals say in question time. The honourable member did not repeat my words at all. In fact, I was quoting from other sources and here she is misinterpreting it wilfully and trying to twist it around to try to fit into her warped world view about renewables. She will be judged for this, just as her party will be judged for this, just as her leader, the member for Dunstan, will be judged for this—taking advantage of a severe weather crisis. When the government is trying to get on and keep the community safe, they are out there running around with their biased views about renewable energy.
