Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Energy spokesperson
The Minister for Energy, Matthew Groom, has seriously mismanaged obvious risks in his energy portfolio. This was demonstrated once more in Parliament this morning when he revealed his complete inability to plan for the future.
It's clear Minister Groom ignored warnings from climate organisations of a “super” El Nino that would hit Tasmania over last autumn, spring and summer. The severe drought warnings came nearly two years ago, and were confirmed in May 2015.
