The one thing the gas crisis underscores is a major flaw that lies at the heart of our Federation. It’s the State governments that should be in the frame on this and it’s beyond absurd that the Federal government should be expected to solve a gas “crisis” the states have created with their immature, ill-founded and ideological objection and ban on opening up new gas fields? With enough gas reserves to fuel Australia for 200 years, there is no gas crisis or shortage of gas as such, just a shortage of will to get it out of the ground.
