Paul Murray slams ‘greenies’ blaming Victorian blackouts on climate change

Sky News host Paul Murray says the major outage at Victoria’s biggest power station Loy Yang A has “nothing to do” with climate change.

Approximately 500,000 households especially on the surf coast west of Geelong and in the inner west of the state have suffered power blackouts.

Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan attributed the physical collapse of six transmission towers to “extreme weather”.

“Extreme weather means every time there is a storm, every time there is a bushfire, every time there is hail, apparently it’s all to do with climate change,” Mr Murray said.

“These people believe that if Australia did everything that the greenies want, then somehow the weather would change.”
