Re: That table actually tells us why Turnbull is right

Hmmm, not quite.

Your sentence "the power went out because there was no generation system in place to supply base load when the wind farms shut down, ..." should really be "the power went out because there was no generation system online to supply sufficient power to avoid tripping the interconnect ".

Are you contending that if the wind farms had not been built, and new or existing power stations had been in their place the blackout wouldn't have occurred?
