July 1—What will be tomorrow’s current history?
As things seem to stand at the moment, “tomorrow’s news” for the northern hemisphere, particularly the United States, Canada and Europe, has just been previewed in Australia, and is reported in the London Daily Mail. “Outrage as Australia’s energy crisis worsens with hospitals ordered to reduce electricity use and millions warned not to use appliances at night: ‘We’re rationing power like a 3rd world country.’” The Mail continues: “Australia’s energy crisis has deepened, with the National Electricity Market suspended, hospitals ordered to reduce electricity use and millions of people urged not to use basic appliances, despite the freezing winter weather…. The Tomago aluminum smelter in N.S.W. (New South Wales), the country’s biggest electricity user, was also forced to cut production to reduce the chance of a blackout.”
