On January 13, Venezuela imposed electricity blackouts(telegraph.co.uk)These will initially last for 4 hours a week.
President Hugo Chavez says there is an energy crisis. Water levels in the Guri Dam "the cornerstone of Venezuela's energy system, is threatening to fall to critical levels".
Hang on: the media has led us to believe that Hugo Chavez is the saviour of South America with his oil wealth going to help the people of Venezuela, Bolivia, Iran etc..
Where is all this great oil? Why do they depend on WATER for their energy?
