Australia ill-prepared for food crisis
“Who would have thought that affluence would be measured by who could afford lettuces at $20/kg, rather than Lamborghinis? … Australian governments cannot use the war in Ukraine and Putin to explain away the prices rises and supply issues. … Years of flawed climate ideology has destroyed our ability to grow food in Australia. The government’s forced uptake of expensive, unreliable wind and solar power at the expense of cheap sources has increased electricity bills, one of the largest costs of doing business at every stage from farm to table.”
