Jewkrainian crybaby has also something to say.

Quote:
The United States needs to impose sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 operator until Russia stops manipulating natural gas flows for harmful political purposes, according to Yuriy Vitrenko, CEO of Naftogaz of Ukraine.
He wrote this on his Facebook page.

"Russia has done, is doing, and will continue to do so — manipulating gas flows for harmful political purposes. We have persuaded and continue to persuade the United States that the best course of action in this situation is to impose sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 operator until Russia stops doing so," Vitrenko said.

According to him, evidence of the cessation of manipulations will be the situation when supplies of gas to European companies are moved to the Ukraine-Russia border, gas exports from Central Asia are unblocked and Gazprom loses its de facto monopoly on gas exports through pipelines.

"When everyone sees that it is not Putin, but many different European companies can choose the routes of gas transportation from the Russian border to the EU, then Russia will not be able to manipulate gas flows for harmful political purposes," Vitrenko said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.S. President Joe Biden had a meeting on October 30 where the U.S. leader said it was important "to ensure that Russia cannot manipulate natural gas flows for harmful political purposes."

This has to do with the fact that, as I mentioned before, Jewkraine won't get any money if the gas pipeline doesn't cross their territory.

Nur-Sultan, Moscow Resume Talks on Khvalynskoye and Imashevskoye Gas Fields

By Vusala Abbasova October 30, 2021

Officials from Kazakhstan and Russia have agreed to resume negotiations on the development of two large gas fields, Khvalynskoye and Imashevskoye, located in Kazakhstan’s waters in the Caspian Sea.

The statement was made during a recent meeting between Kazakhstan’s Deputy Energy Minister Magzum Mirzagaliyev and Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, held in St. Petersburg.

Putin Claims Russia Is Decarbonizing Faster Than G7 Countries

Russia is cutting its greenhouse gas emissions faster than the G7 group of nations, President Vladimir Putin said in his video address to the G20 summit in Rome on Sunday.

Russia is heating 2.5 times faster than the rest of the planet and its Arctic regions are warming especially fast, Putin told the meeting of the world’s 20 leading economies. In the past decade alone, the average annual temperature in Russia has risen by about 0.5 degrees Celsius — and as the climate crisis intensifies, Russia is facing multiple threats including desertification, soil erosion and permafrost melt, he said.

“Naturally, our country is taking an active and decisive part in international efforts to preserve the climate,” Putin said.

“Russia is one of the leaders in the global decarbonization process, according to international experts. Over the past 20 years, our economy’s carbon intensity has declined by an average of 2.7% annually, and this is more than in the world as a whole, and even more than in G7 countries,” he continued.

Europe’s Energy Crisis Better Wake America Up

Quote:
Paul Driessen

COP-26, the twenty-sixth massive climate control “conference of parties,” goes live in Glasgow, Scotland on Halloween. That’s certainly appropriate, since its primary purpose is to further terrify humanity to “take action” to prevent the “existential threat” of “manmade climate cataclysms.”

Thousands of politicians and climate activists will take private jets and limos to the lecture and hector halls – to demand that “commoners” be restricted to one Basic Economy flight every three years, meatless diets, public transportation, and keeping 640-square-foot homes at 65 F all winter and 85 F all summer.

Otherwise, they say, countless people will die as our planet “overheats” by up to 4.1 degrees C (7.2 F) by 2100. Real-world science and data provide no support for temperature spikes of this magnitude. But just in time for COP-26, Columbia University concocted a “new study” and “new metric” on the “mortality cost of carbon,” based on these scary computer-modeled temperature forecasts.

Bloomberg News gave the death-by-global-warming fable prominent coverage. 83 million people (equivalent to the entire population of Germany) “could be killed” this century by rising planetary temperatures caused by fossil fuel use, it asserted. Nonsense.

Modern housing and energy systems enable people to adapt to and survive even the most extreme heat and cold – even in Antarctica, which just experienced the coldest average winter temperatures ever recorded: -61 C (-78 F).

Survival becomes far less likely, however, if climate treaties and energy policies prohibit efficient air conditioning and heating, ration them, subject them to recurrent blackouts, or make them harder to afford amid rising oil, natural gas, coal and electricity prices.

Yet that is exactly what’s being advocated and implemented. Britain and various US cities and states want to ban natural gas heating and cooking – and replace them with expensive heat pumps and other electric appliances, powered by expensive, weather-dependent wind turbines and solar panels. Meanwhile, energy prices have been skyrocketing in response to Covid recovery and anti-fossil-fuel policies.

Climate theory has long held that most 21st-century warming will occur in northern latitudes during winter months. But now we’re now told a warming Arctic could also be causing colder winters, which could endanger far more people than rising temperatures or more frequent heat waves.

Actually, far more people die in cold weather than in hot weather or heat waves. In the United States and Canada, cold causes 45 times more deaths per year than heat: 113,000 from cold versus 2,500 from heat. Worldwide, where air conditioning is far less available, some 1,700,000 people die annually from cold versus 300,000 from heat – a ratio of almost 6:1.

Energy policies that favor wind and solar over fossil fuels beget “fuel poverty” that can make adequate heating impossible, causing numerous health problems and deaths. Poor, minority, elderly and fixed-income families are most severely and inequitably affected, it found.

Cold homes bring increased risks of respiratory and circulatory problems (including asthma, bronchitis, flu, cardiovascular disease and stroke) and exacerbate existing adverse health conditions. Cold household temperatures also increase depression, anxiety and other mental health problems. Already vulnerable groups – young children, older people and those with preexisting health issues – are especially susceptible to hypothermia, more illness and death.

Public Health England calculated that one-tenth of all “excess winter deaths” in England and Wales are directly attributable to fuel poverty, and 21.5% of excess winter deaths are attributable to the coldest 25% of homes. 30,000 to 40,000 people died each year in England and Wales since 1990 who would not have perished if their homes hadn’t been so cold, researchers estimated.

Adjusted for population, this is equivalent to 165,000 to 220,000 excess American winter deaths per year.

In 2017, Germany endured 172,000 localized blackouts; in 2019, 350,000 German families had their electricity cut off because they couldn’t pay their power bills.

Coal, oil, natural gas, electricity and home heating costs have risen significantly since those studies were prepared, likely increasing the excess winter death toll markedly. In fact, 2021 European gas prices skyrocketed nearly 600% over 2020 prices, and Rotterdam coal futures soared from $60/ton in October 2020 to $265/ton in September 2021. Energy prices are still rising, affecting jobs and living costs.

Global demand for gas and coal has surged as the world recovers from Covid. British gas production has plunged by 60 % since 2000; Britain and Europe have banned fracking; Putin is playing politics over how much gas it will deliver to Europe; and President Biden has stymied leasing, drilling, fracking, pipelines, and oil and gas exports. Many coal and nuclear power plants have been shut down. Meanwhile, Europe’s heavily subsidized wind turbines generated far less electricity in 2021 due to unfavorable winds.

This perfect storm of misinformed policies could bring unprecedented excess deaths as winter sets in.

Schools, hospitals and clinics could also be much chillier – and deadlier. At 11¢ per kilowatt-hour (average US business rate), a 650,000-square-foot hospital would pay about $2.2 million annually for electricity. At 25¢ per kWh (UK), the annual cost jumps to $5 million; at 35¢ per kWh (Germany), to $7 million! Those soaring costs would likely result in employee layoffs, higher medical bills, reduced patient care, colder conditions, and more deaths.

Adding to these woes, Citigroup says EU natural gas prices could hit $100 per mcf (per thousand cubic feet or million Btu) if this winter is particularly cold and more Gulf of Mexico hurricanes disrupt production. News outlets report that energy companies supplying six million UK homes face collapse, and several elder care homes have warned that crippling energy bills could force closures, leaving many old and infirm people homeless.

Britain’s energy minister has said a “very difficult winter” lies ahead, as gas prices soar amid fear of blackouts and food shortages. Many households “will not be able to cope.”

US energy prices remain well below Europe’s, but threats to American families are also rising. The average monthly Henry Hub spot price for natural gas has shot from $1.63 in June 2020 to $5.16 in September 2021. That’s well below the highest-ever price ($13.42 in October 2005) but still ominous.

One-third of American households already had difficulty six years ago adequately heating and cooling their homes – and one-fifth of households had to reduce or forego food, medicine and other necessities to pay energy bills. Even before Covid, low-income, Black, Hispanic and Native American families were spending a greater portion of their incomes on energy than average US households.

Nearly half of US households that heat with natural gas will spend 22-50% more this winter than last year, depending on how cold it gets. Families that use electricity, propane or fuel oil to heat their homes will also pay significantly more. Energy-intensive factories may have to cut back hours and production, lay people off, and move operations overseas (where they will continue to burn fossil fuels and emit greenhouse gases).

Americans are also being impacted by gasoline prices that have risen more than a dollar a gallon for regular since the 2020 election and recently reached $5.00 per gallon in New York and $7.60 in one southern California town.

The overall effect of these anti-fossil-fuel policies on livelihoods, living standards, health and life spans will be profoundly negative. Countless people will perish, many of them cold and jobless in the dark.

Under Joe Biden, the United States is already on a trajectory to Europe’s real climate crisis: unaffordable, unreliable energy. That crisis better wake America up. Otherwise, self-righteous activists and governing classes will destroy our American middle class jobs, families – and lives.

Belarus Warns Against New EU Sanctions, Says Could Cut Gas

Belarus's strongman leader Alexander Lukashenko vowed Thursday to respond to any new sanctions imposed over the migrant crisis on the country's border with Poland, including by potentially cutting off the transit of natural gas to Europe.

"If they impose additional sanctions on us... we must respond," Lukashenko said in comments to officials released by the presidency.

"We are warming Europe, and they are threatening us," he said, pointing out that Russia's Yamal-Europe gas pipeline transits through Belarus to Poland.

"And what if we halt natural gas supplies?"

Zog sock puppets leaders all agree, “we think it’s important that we simultaneously punish Russians for not sucking our cocks and bending over for us and allow Europeans to sit hungry in their dark cold depressing flats all winter and possibly freezing to death while we sit in our cozy warm palaces eating fine cuts of meat and enjoying molesting children we’ve abducted.

We also agree every once in a while it’s good to come out and lecture the peasantry about their privileged place in society and insist they hand over their women children and what it left of their comforts to their replacements from Africa and the Middle East.
We agree anyone not happy with this arrangement should be forcibly removed from their homes and sodomized repeatedly.“

Gas prices rose 10 percent on Monday after Germany threatened to boycott Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to punish Russia if it invades Ukraine.

Quote:
Berlin (AFP) – The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia will not be allowed to operate in the event of any new "escalation" in Ukraine, under an agreement between Berlin and Washington, Germany's new Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said on Sunday.

"In the event of further escalation this gas pipeline could not come into service," Baerbock told German television station ZDF, clarifying earlier threats made by Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

Baerbock was speaking after the weekend G7 meeting on tensions with Russia, and ahead of a sit-down with her European partners on Monday.

Scholz had earlier said during a visit to Poland that: "It would be a serious mistake to believe that violating the borders of a European country would remain without consequences."

The pipeline, which has been backed by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the one hand and by Scholz's predecessor Angela Merkel on the other in recent years, has been heavily criticised by many countries.

The United States and several Eastern European countries are worried that Europe is too dependent on Putin's Russia.

Moreover, Ukraine -- until now one of the major transit countries for Russian gas to Europe, as well as fighting Russian-backed separatist forces inside its own borders -- fears that it will be economically and diplomatically weakened by the project, which bypasses its territory.

Scholz said that Germany would "do anything" to ensure that Ukraine remains a transit country for Russian gas exports to Europe.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki asked Scholz to suspend the pipeline, warning that Moscow would use it to "blackmail" Europe.

The call came as Scholz visited Warsaw for the first time since replacing Merkel last week, on his third foreign visit after Paris and Brussels.

"It would be better not to allow the opening of Nord Stream 2," Morawiecki said at a joint news conference with Scholz after their talks.

"I drew the chancellor's attention to the risks linked to the opening of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and sadly the extent to which... these risks for Ukraine could get considerably worse."

Poland has long opposed the 10-billion-euro ($12-billion) pipeline, which is majority owned by Russian gas giant Gazprom.

The 1,200-kilometre (745-mile) pipeline, which runs underwater from Russia's Baltic coast to northeastern Germany, was completed in September.

However, Baerbock pointed out that the pipeline "cannot be authorised for the time being anyway because it does not meet the rules of European energy legislation".

In mid-November, the German energy regulator suspended the certification procedure for Nord Stream 2 by requiring the Swiss-based consortium in charge of its operation to create a company under German law.

Morawiecki and Scholz also offered differing views on several other issues.

Asked about the new German coalition government's support for greater European Union federalism, Morawiecki said the concept was "utopian" and spoke of the need for a "Europe of sovereign nations".

The two also discussed Poland's stand-off with the European Commission over its judicial reforms -- a dispute that is holding up the disbursement of much-needed pandemic recovery funds from the EU.

Morawiecki said he wanted the dispute resolved "as soon as possible" and said he had presented some "options" to Scholz, without elaborating.

But Scholz said he hoped that a "pragmatic solution" could be found but emphasised that "the rule of law and democracy are fundamental values".

Europe faces full-blown energy crisis

22 Dec, 2021 10:01

Amid a shortage of natural gas, lowered wind power output, outages at nuclear energy facilities and cold weather with winter just starting, power prices in Europe soared this week – and the worst may yet to come.



European prices for natural gas exceeded $2,150 per 1,000 cubic meters on Tuesday for the first time in history, according to Intercontinental Exchange’s London clearing house. The price at the Dutch TTF hub in the Netherlands, the benchmark gas price for Europe, soared some 27% in one day to nearly $210 per megawatt-hour in household terms.

The surge slightly subsided when markets opened on Wednesday, with January futures trading at around $1,970 per 1,000 cubic meters as of 08:00 GMT.

Tuesday’s jump in prices came about after gas deliveries to Germany via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline from Russia were halted. Flows were diverted eastward to Poland, and Russia’s Gazprom hasn’t booked additional pumping volumes for Wednesday, data from the Russian gas transmission operator Gascade shows.

Some critics say Gazprom has been reducing gas flows to Europe amid the delay in the certification of its new European pipeline, Nord Stream 2. However, it has repeatedly stressed that it supplies gas to Europe according to consumer demand and in accordance with existing



Meanwhile, no new gas flows to Europe mean utilities are forced to drain their gas storages, which are already at seasonal lows. Some of them, including France’s EDF, have had to restart fossil-fuel-burning generators to avoid grid disruption. France is usually considered an exporter of power on the European continent, but it has been short on energy since its major power utility, Electricité de France SA, halted four nuclear reactors, constituting 10% of the country’s nuclear capacity, straining power grids. According to ZeroHedge, 30% of its nuclear capacity will go offline in the coming weeks, while Germany is also set to lose nearly half of its own capacity next year.



To add fuel to the proverbial fire, Germany’s power output from wind turbines has dropped to five-week lows amid the cold weather. This put the power grid under strain, hiking power prices by 30% to a record $487 per megawatt-hour.

It appears the energy crisis in Europe is only gaining speed, with experts warning that the worst is yet to come in late January-early February, when the temperature tends to be at its lowest. Meanwhile, renewable sources such as solar and wind power will be at a standstill due to meteorological conditions, with windless days and the sun unable to push through the clouds.

Heat network may be 67% more expensive, consumer organizations concerned

The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) determined on Thursday that the maximum costs for district heating of an average household may increase by 67%. This maximum increase is related to the gas price, which is currently at a record high.

“If heat suppliers do increase to the maximum, a household with district heating will pay an average of €2542 next year, compared to €1523 in 2021,” calculates Cindy Kremer, director of Vereniging Eigen Huis.



For the coming years, the new cabinet wants to further discourage the use of gas by taxing it more heavily.

PM Orbán: With Russian Gas, Utility Bills Can Be Kept Low

Quote:
Substantive talks on increasing the amount of Russian long-term gas deliveries to Hungary by one billion cubic metres a year can move forward, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said after five hours of talks with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Tuesday.
Orbán told a joint news conference that with Russian gas, the government’s scheme to keep household utility bills low would prove feasible, but without it, the scheme would come to an end. He noted that household gas and electricity prices in Europe, except in Hungary, had grown 2-3-fold.

With the agreement under negotiation, “we will secure Hungary’s energy supply permanently”, the prime minister said.

As the two countries’ long-term gas supply agreement will gain in importance in the future, the volume should be increased rather than reduced, he said.

Putin said Russia was open to further cooperation, and Hungary’s request was being considered. Supplying an additional one billion cubic metres would be easily manageable, he added.

Whereas Europe would encounter problems with its gas supply, he said, Hungary’s supply was secure thanks to its contract with Russia for 4.5 billion cubic metres of gas per year until 2036. Hungarian consumers, he added, had access to gas at well below the market price.

Putin said Hungary had continued to prove its reliability in transmitting deliveries of Russian natural gas.

Energy plays an important role in Russian-Hungarian economic relations, Putin noted, adding that Russia had been supplying energy to Hungary for many years without interruption, covering 55 percent of its oil consumption and 80 percent of its gas consumption.

He also noted that Hungarian oil and gas company MOL maintains oil production interests in Russia.

Putin noted that Russia supplied gas to Hungary under a long-term agreement and that the bilateral agreement has been extended until 2036. “Russia is open to further cooperation,” he added.

Concerning the upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant, Orbán noted preparations for the project have entered the final phase, and as soon as the last permit is obtained “the next phase of implementation will automatically start, enabling us Hungarians to take the decisive step towards becoming independent in terms of electricity supply,” Orbán said, adding that generation system was on course to becoming climate neutral by 2030.

Orbán said Putin had agreed on setting up a Russian-Hungarian joint venture to be involved in the operation of a container terminal at the Ukrainian-Hungarian border. Hungary’s economy could benefit hugely, he added.

The prime minister noted that a large vaccine plant will soon start operating in Hungary, and it would be suitable for the production of Sputnik V. He trusted a final agreement was in sight, he added. Hungary plans to buy Sputnik Light, which it would manufacture, he said, adding that an assessment of the vaccine by the Hungarian authorities would conclude soon.

Meanwhile, Orbán discussed the possibility of increasing the number of Russian passenger planes to Hungary with a view to boosting Russian tourism in the country. He also raised the possibility of introducing direct flights to Budapest from Ekaterinburg and Kaliningrad.

NATO plans to build a gas pipeline from Spain to Germany – media

NATO is considering building a pipeline from Spain to France and Germany that will “reduce Central Europe’s dependence on Russian gas.” This was reported by La Vanguardia, citing sources in the Spanish government.

“The gas pipeline between Spain and Germany will reduce Central Europe’s dependence on Russian gas in the coming years,” the statement said.

According to the agency, the construction of a new Trans-Pyrenean connection to send gas from Algeria to Central Europe is being considered. It is noted that there are eight regasification stations required for liquefied gas treatment in the Iberian Peninsula, namely in Spain and Portugal.

It is noted that the authorities are studying the option of restarting the Midcat project, which was stopped three years ago. The project involves the creation of a Mediterranean gas corridor to deliver gas from Algeria to central Europe. The newspaper claims that Germany is extremely interested in it.

It was reported earlier that the authorities of Poland and Ukraine are discussing the construction of a joint gas pipeline to transfer large volumes of gas from west to east in the near future.

Shouldn't it be called the Trans-Africa Mediterranean Sea Spain Pyrenean France Italy Alps Austria Czechoslovakia Poland connection.

Does this mean EVERYONE can dump their stupid Global Warming Policies or just NATO?

Default Biden vows US will ‘end’ Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline if Ukraine invaded by Russia

"President Biden vowed Monday in a joint news conference with Germany’s chancellor to “bring an end to” the Nord Stream 2 pipeline if Russia invades Ukraine.

Biden promised to prevent fuel from flowing directly from Russia to Germany through the newly constructed Baltic Sea pipeline just moments before Chancellor Olaf Scholz gave a unified but noticeably less enthusiastic nod to the idea.

“If Russia invades — that means tanks or troops crossing the border of Ukraine, again — then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2,” the president said in the White House East Room.

“We will bring an end to it.”

Hereby a message from the Dutch Dissident magazine (translated by Google).

Germany has already used up two-thirds of its gas reserves

It is even more incomprehensible that the US puppet state has promised Germany not to use Nordstream 2 if the US provokes a 'Russian invasion' in Ukraine.

Europe has used 85% of the gas stored in the summer

Ukraine Crisis and the ‘Gas Game’

Over the last few days, tensions between Russia and the United States-NATO have been rising over the Ukraine issue. Ukraine and the Western countries have alleged Russia of amassing 120,000 troops at the Ukraine border, a move that the Ukrainians look suspiciously at, fearing potential Russian aggression. However, Russia has consistently denied these charges of hostility while the West, especially the United States, has threatened Moscow to impose severe sanctions.

Surprisingly, amid the browbeating by US President Biden and his administration over the Ukraine issue, the Ukrainian leadership has publicly downplayed the threat of Russian invasion. In fact, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has accused the Western media of undermining the faith of Ukrainians in their government and stoking economic panic across the nation. This deemphasizing by Ukraine has raised a question over American intentions to keep the issue boiling. In this regard, if we look at some of the recent energy deals and dialogues taking place across Europe, we may perhaps get our answer.



Qatar as a replacement for Russia

Russia caters to around one-third of Europe’s gas needs. Meanwhile, under the fear of alleged Russian aggression, the US has asked Qatar and other major global energy producers to divert energy supplies to Europe. Sensing an opportunity, Qatar has demanded that the European Union resolve their long-running investigation into its gas contracts. Moreover, Qatar has reportedly communicated its interest in long term gas deals with the EU compared to spot contracts or short-term crisis solutions.

Poland-Saudi Arabia oil deal

The US threat mongering about the potential Russian attack has successfully instilled fears across Europe, especially Eastern Europe. The fears have grown in the recent past amid verbal duels between the US and Russia. As a consequence of these fears, Poland will sell a stake in its oil refineries to Saudi Arabia. The proposed deal will put two-thirds of the Polish oil supply under the control of Saudi Arabia and displace Russia as the largest oil supplier.

Nord Stream 2

Right from its start, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline supplying natural gas from Russia to Germany has been an eyesore for the United States. The US has put a lot of its diplomatic influence to make somehow Germany cancel this project. However, the firm resolve of Russian President Vladimir Putin and support to this project from German leadership has ensured its completion.

Besides, the Nord Stream 2 bypasses Ukraine, thereby making it a non-player in the gas game in Europe. Moreover, once fully operational, Nord Stream 2 is set to reduce Ukraine’s gas transit revenues from $2.5 billion to $1.2 billion annually. Thus, Ukraine has naturally allied with the US in opposition to the Russo-German project. With the Ukraine crisis at its peak, the United States and even the European Union have threatened to impose severe sanctions against Nord Stream 2 if Russia attacks Ukraine.

Considering these warnings, perpetual denials by Russia about any aggression and the latest statement by Russian President Putin that the US is drawing Russia into some kind of armed conflict, it appears that sanctions on Nord Stream 2 and Russian gas supply are not a consequence of the Ukraine crisis, but Ukraine crisis is planned to hit Russian gas and energy trade with Europe. The situation gives the US, which is currently the biggest gas producer in the world, a needed pretext to suspend Russian gas supplies to Europe. If it happens, it will be a win for the United States in its trade war with Russia and a move that will checkmate the Nord Stream 2 project.

The German Insurance Association (GDV) has warned of the danger of blackouts for Germany and Europe. "Unfortunately, we in Germany are not sufficiently prepared for the consequences of a nationwide power blackout," according to GDV chief executive Jörg Asmussen. The manufactured crisis in Ukraine is putting huge pressure on Germany to halt Russian gas from NordStream2.

According to dpa, as with the Corona pandemic, the losses in the event of a blackout would be too high for insurers to absorb on their own. “Some consequences of a blackout can be absorbed with the help of insurance, but not all,” Asmussen underscored.

In a previous published statement, GDV had highlighted the dangers of a power supply collapse. “A long-lasting, widespread power blackout is considered by experts to be the worst disaster scenario. More destructive than all natural hazards, more devastating than a pandemic,” it said.

As early as 2011, the Institute for Technology Assessment in Karlsruhe had come to the conclusion that in the event of a nationwide power blackout, “a collapse of the entire society could hardly be prevented”.

In its recent letter, the association quoted a department head at the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance: “A blackout is currently one of the greatest risks for our country”.

Public transport and retail would come to a standstill, and in the long term the collapse of public order as a whole looms. “The first people die because they can no longer provide for themselves, vital medicines are missing or medical equipment no longer works. Piles of rubbish pile up on the streets and attract rats. Diseases start to spread because people eat spoiled food and drink contaminated water.” Eventually looting and violence follow.

Insurers blasted Germany’s energy transition policy. “In this questionable situation, Germany and Europe are tackling one of the largest infrastructure projects in history: the energy transition. For energy suppliers and grid operators, this means a permanent stress test.”

Rising tensions between the gas supplier Russia and the transit country Ukraine, threatens the security of energy supply in Germany and electricity prices have risen sharply. Power cuts are also becoming more frequent.

Here's an example of how prices are going through the roof.

First you paid 68 euros, now they want you to pay 209 euros (Dutch example).

It's almost as if (((they))) want blackouts to happen, so all the shitskins that have been imported into Germany and the rest of Europe will loot and kill defenseless, unarmed Whites unimpeded.

This is EXACTLY the plan.

But they planned THREE crises to run side by side.

1/ The Plandemic

2/ The Global Warming kwisis -

3/ The Cyber kwisis - ransomware attacks by "hackers", pipelines severed by "the enemy", etc


Crisis three includes failure/collapse of infrastructure.


I wonder why the vaxxed don't like this latest kwisis, because they fucking loved the first one. Such as you would think they would be gathering outside of gas stations, shouting "Please raise the prices further!", and "Please increase my household fuel costs!" But of course, by supporting "green policy", and the present ruling political regimes, they are doing exactly that.
