How we got to the AEMO electricity price disaster

I remember a prescient press article by Terry McCrann which I kept – “The experts lie about renewable energy 28Nov2016” Link might be part paywalled.
Here is a quick quote – [THE first and most important thing to understand about global warming true believers and the pushers of so-called “renewable energy” is that they lie. They lie effortlessly, seamlessly, continuously and without the slightest sense of shame. They lie deliberately and carelessly and casually, and even when they don’t realise they are lying. They lie without the slightest sense of self-awareness and with all the pomposity of stupidity aforethought.]
Fast forward to where we are now with the monthly average AEMO wholesale prices shown in my 2 year chart. The timing of the Federal election on 21st May did not help but Govt has to govern and PM Morrison and his Energy Minister Taylor should have been advised in Jan/Feb that their mantra of “we reduced power prices” was now way out of date as Euro-Russian gas supplies issues + Russian-Ukraine border tensions building could be feeding increases in world gas & coal prices that were influencing AEMO wholesale electricity pricing.
Lets just quickly state a few factual matters that help us understand how we arrived where we are with coal and gas generators experiencing fuel supply issues that if they got worse could cause serious large scale blackouts.
A – Our media is ~80% GreenLeft so renewables issues are usually reported to suit the renewables industry with little critical media input. Just look at the youth of many journos at pressers and no wonder many must be auto-greenleft supporters.
B – Conversely rational news about coal and gas resources needed to fuel ~70% of our electricity generation is hard to find.
