Renewable Energy Wars Are Battling It Out In South Australia

The arguments between the proponents of renewable energy and believers of traditional oil-based power in Australia is escalating after an intensely hot summer marked by power outages and finger-pointing system failures according to the Nikkei Asian Review.
