How to destroy a perfectly good electricity grid in 3 easy steps!

How many solar panels does it take to stop floods and droughts in Australia? The science of managing the weather with power stations and other modern superstitions. 

The World is watching Australia. Despite being handicapped with abundant resources, we’ve turned ourselves into an international spectacle with rampant blackouts, flying squads of diesel generators, and the highest electricity prices in the world. In a world first, hear how Tasmania resorted to cloud seeding to generate MWh.

An achievement like this does not come easily. The grand experiment unfolds as the nation discovers why “free” energy isn’t free.
