Last Chance Hotel: Australia’s Energy Crisis at the Crossroads

*** Australia’s energy crisis is a self-inflicted calamity with no apparent end in sight. The PM, Malcolm Turnbull seems intent on protecting his son, Alex’s investment in Australia’s most notorious wind power outfit, Infigen (see our post here).
