“SA wind farms to blame for Murray-Darling crisis, probably” – Morrison

TRENT BARTLETT

Stand-in Prime Minister Scott Morrison has lobbed the political football squarely toward South Australia’s wind farms for the growing Murray-Darling River crisis.

In a doorstop interview this morning, the PM suggested that a mass of fish deaths in Menindee, NSW — some 130 kilometres east of the SA border —  had been caused, at least in part, by wind turbines in SA.

I’m here to talk about the things that regular, true blue Australians care about, and that’s wearing thongs to citizenship ceremonies, distributing tiny little Australian flag lapel pins and banning Africans from capital cities

‘We have received advice that the fish may have been blown out of their homes by some unusual wind gusts, possibly from wind turbines’, Morrison told reporters.

When pressed about who had provided the advice, Morrison pointed to an expert climate change panel consisting of himself, former National Party leader Barnaby Joyce, business leaders and a rag-tag bunch of fictional cartoon supervillains from the ‘90s television show Captain Planet.

‘One thing we know for sure is that we’ve never seen a coal power station contribute to the death of a fish. Can we say the same thing about wind turbines? I think the jury’s still out on that one’, Morrison continued.

‘Anyway, I’m not here to talk about dead fish. I’m here to talk about the things that regular, true blue Australians care about, and that’s wearing thongs to citizenship ceremonies, distributing tiny little Australian flag lapel pins and banning Africans from capital cities’.
