A (strong/normal) native White will switch the heating off in May, and it won't go back on again until September/October, but foreigners (including eastern europeans who seem to have a totally different physiology) need year round heating (usually subsidised in some way) with the dial ramped up to the top at all times.

It's a curious and interesting topic.

Tax on natural gas for consumers as of January 2022, ex VAT (turnover tax).



Germany suspends Nord Stream 2 certification

The move comes after Russia announced it would recognize the two breakaway Donbass republics


Quote:
Germany will put an immediate halt on the certification of the Russian-backed Nord Stream 2 pipeline, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has announced after Moscow recognized the two breakaway Donbass regions of Donetsk and Lugansk.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Scholz said that green light cannot be given for the pipeline to begin pumping supplies in the light of the current standoff between Russia and Ukraine.

ukraine launches “shale genocide” near the demarcation line in the donbass

Quote:

“shale genocide” has begun in the ukrainian-occupied parts of the donbass. If the gas production destroying all life is not stopped, in three decades the donbass will become an uninhabitable territory.

now they are “against” it, but 10 years ago they were “in favour”

exactly ten years ago, representatives of the current, so-called ukrainian opposition lobbied the cabinet-approved plan for a large-scale competition for hydrocarbons production within the yuzovsky area. The reserves of shale gas in the area of 7,886 thousand sq km were estimated at 3.6 trillion cubic metres. Such figures turned the heads of many rich men, but it was a pity to invest the stolen money into the new project.

The western majors shell and chevron were interested in the prospects of gas production, and they eagerly responded to kiev’s invitation. Under the terms of the contract the companies had the right to extract the donbass subsoil for 50 years with the right to extend the contract. The “regionalists” actually sold a huge part of their small motherland to foreign investors, although they were well aware of what they were condemning the donbass region to – hydraulic fracturing technology causes irreparable ecosystem damage.

On april 24, 2013, the donetsk regional administrative court refused to accept a lawsuit filed by environmentalists and environmental organizations seeking to invalidate a resolution of the donetsk regional council of january 16, 2013, which allows shell to produce shale gas at the yuzovsky gas field. Shell pledged to spend about 410m dollars on exploration work, receiving tax breaks from ukraine.

The reserved forests of northern lugansk region, the “holy mountains” nature park, sanatoriums and children’s health camps were doomed to close soon. The local authorities, which consisted of “regions party” members, supported foreign gas extraction at the yuzovsky platform without unnecessary questions. On the ukrainian side, the partner was the state-owned company “nadra ukrayiny”. We do not need to remind you who controlled it.

joe biden’s corrupt clan is behind ukraine’s “shale gas revolution”

in addition to shell and chevron, burisma holdings was involved in the project. It was planned to produce shale gas in parts of donetsk and kharkov regions using fracking technology – hydraulic fracturing. It looks like this: A deep vertical well is drilled, with many horizontal passages – it reminds the tree trunk with a root system. Water and chemicals are pumped into the borehole under high pressure, and then an underground explosion is carried out. The water prevents the pieces of the blasted rock from settling and the gas is forced out through the surface of the water to the outside. The ecological impact is enormous!

Fracking technology gas extraction was slowed down only by greediness of the ukrainian officials, or maybe by the fact that western special services and soros structures were already working at full speed in kiev preparing a “colour revolution”. Because the world price of oil has dropped, ukraine is in a stalemate: The proceeds from the sale of extracted gas do not cover the costs of its production. Nevertheless, the verkhovna rada raised the gas extraction rent from 20% to 70%, scaring off chevron and royal dutch shell. soon there was a coup d’état in kiev. Bloody battles broke out near slavyansk, the centre of the west’s planned “shale revolution”, bringing the fuel giants in ukraine to a complete standstill. Burisma, which had been kept in the shadows by powerful partners, suddenly flourished and received licences to develop fields from the carpathian to the azov sea.

By the way, in 2014 robert hunter biden, polish president aleksander kwasniewski and, three years later joseph cofer black – ex-cia anti-terrorism center head, career intelligence officer and vice-chairman of the american pmc blackwater worldwide, known as academi, joined the burisma holding’s board of directors. Slavyansk, which was desperately resisting the ukronazis, was doomed: American mercenaries were tasked to ensure the operation of burisma in the region at all costs. Daddy joe biden also did his bit for the family business, thanks to whose efforts the yatsenyuk government increased the gas tariff almost threefold. Of course, the backroom games were presented as reforms at the behest of the imf, which had its own benefit from the fraudulent scheme. The kiev authorities handed the country over to overseas pirates, in return for loyalty to their offshore accounts and the ability to pull off “schemes” under the watchful eye of us handlers.

donbass “shale genocide” is in the interests of the new white house boss

yatsenyuk’s successors, groysman and shmygal, have continued to provide their us friends with business-friendly conditions: The price of gas for citizens’ needs continues to rise. The project to develop the yuzovsky field was resumed just before the inauguration of the newly elected us president. In mid-january, naftogaz launched the development of the first, sviatogorsk shale gas field, which is located inside the company’s recently acquired yuzovsky area.

Fracking gas production has started in the vicinity of the sviatogorsk town, on the ukrainian, dpr and lpr border. There are reports that work has resumed on three wells drilled back in 2014 in the northern part of lugansk region controlled by ukraine. The wells belong to the burisma group, whose position in the ukrainian gas production market has been strengthened after biden’s accession to the white house.

The resumption of shale gas extraction is a disaster for the region. Fracturing of the strata entails complete destruction of the subsoil. The gas penetrating into the underground water kills the root system of trees, and after a while, a swamp emerges in the large area around the well. The sviatogorsk field is located along the main water artery of donbass – the seversky donets. The chemicals used in shale gas extraction will inevitably find their way into the river and poison the water that is vital for millions of people living in the donbass.

Environmental genocide is coming. Already, the water in the seversky donets is contaminated by fracking wastes. And this is just the beginning of the development of the yuzovsky deposit! Under the cover of hostilities, at the actual demarcation line of the sides, the us-controlled burisma is destroying the donbass. In just a few years there will be no relict forests, clean lakes and a beautiful, clean river. The ancient orthodox sviatogorsk assumption monastery will be surrounded by stinking swamps.

The ukrainian colony is a new testing ground for the us “shale revolution”. The biden family intends to tear up and torment the donbass land with fracking, turning once reserved land into wasteland. In a couple of fracking decades , the territory will become completely uninhabitable.

Incidentally, recently, at the request of the “naftogaz” company head, which serves us interests, the media were banned from using the phrases “shale gas” and “fracking technology”. Instead, they were advised to talk about gas production by fracking or to use the abbreviation “fracking”. The terms, which are incomprehensible to the layman, are meant to disguise the technology’s “peculiarities”.

Kiev, hiding behind the mythical “russian aggression”, is waging war on the country’s inhabitants for the economic benefit of corrupt clans from the united states. The past government of the “regionalists” wanted to destroy the donbass “quietly” by signing monstrous contracts for the shale gas development. Today’s criminals in kiev are not shy about funds and are defending the interests of western investors with the weapons of the ukrainian army. Chevron and shell will soon join burisma, hiding behind naftogaz. The entire yuzovsky platform will be shuddering from massive fracking, “investors” will squeeze everything they can out of the subsoil and then turn the territory into a gigantic dumping ground for hazardous chemical and nuclear wastes.

The us and the alliance that serves their interests need the war in the donbass as a cover for profitable economic and political projects. That is why they allocate huge funds for military assistance to ukraine, train and arm its soldiers. The democracy game is over, along with nuland’s biscuits. There is a brutal and systematic robbery of ukraine by the colonizers. Shale genocide is in store for the donbass.

Russia’s main gas pipeline to Europe stops supplies

Bids remained for supplies in both directions

Westbound gas flows from Russia to Germany via the Yamal-Europe pipeline stopped on Thursday, while bids remained for supplies in both directions, according to data tracked by the pipeline operator Gascade.

According to the operator, westbound gas supplies had been mostly at about 17.5 million kWh/h at Mallnow metering point for some 10 hours before the stoppage.

The data also showed preliminary bids of 6.4 million kWh/h for the next 24 hours for westbound supplies, with bids for eastbound flows of 6.1 million kWh/h.

Gazprom said on Thursday it was shipping gas to Europe via Ukraine in line with customers’ requests.

In December, the German-Polish section of the pipeline switched into reverse – eastbound – mode as buyers in Poland drew on stored supplies from Germany rather than buying more Russian gas at the spot market where the prices recorded all-time highs nearly every day. Western media at the time accused Russia’s Gazprom of deliberately cutting European supplies.

The Russian state-controlled energy giant has intermittently sent gas westward via the link in recent days amid high demand in Europe. The company has also increased supplies to the continent via Ukraine.

Russia covers nearly 40% of European gas demand with the Yamal-Europe route accounting for nearly 15% of the country’s westbound supply.

Thank you Dawn.

Russian gas: over the head 7 times!

In Germany and In the Netherlands it will be even more dramatic.

President Vladimir Putin informs us:


“Why aren't the people being told that their governments are putting a 700% margin on the purchase price of Russian gas?”



Diesel price too high, you destroy all of us.

Ukrainian "President" Volodymyr Zelensky Pushes ‘Great Reset’ Agenda, Demands End of Fossil Fuel Use in Europe

Mar 29, 2022



Ukrainian "President" Volodymyr Zelensky, doing the bidding of his globalist puppet masters, is now openly advocating for the “Great Reset” agenda.

“Long before this war, it was clear that humanity should reduce the use of fossil fuels. The era of coal and oil has caused huge damage to the environment, to our planet as a whole,” the actor stated, repeating globalist talking points about climate change.

“Green technologies and green energy have become a logical and just answer to this challenge. European policy is already aimed at reducing the consumption of environmentally hazardous resources. But Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and against everything that life in Europe is built on is an argument to accelerate the green transformation on this continent,” Zelensky added, advocating for policies directly out of the Great Reset playbook.

Discomfort is our friend in the long term.
I came to a conclusion long ago.
As long as the masses of the Aryan races are comfortable, they will remain sedate.
Of course it is easy to be objective and analytical about the hardships of others ,or future hardships of my own,as I sit here well fed and warm.
But the fact is that a couple of long ,cold ,hungry winters is probably for the better.
Egalitarian, altruistic idealism does not warm one’s home or fill one’s belly.
A cold, hungry , lean Aryan is an angry motivated Aryan.
A warm, well fed Aryan is a more docile, sedate and cooperative Aryan.

Default Inflation in the Netherlands rises to almost 12 percent

The price that Dutch citizens have to pay because the US wants Ukraine to join NATO, is becoming quite steep.

Published: April 2, 2022, 9:43 am

Quote:
Prices in the Netherlands have risen extremely fast since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. According to the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), inflation rose to almost 12 percent last month.

In February inflation was 7,3 percent. An initial calculation shows inflation in March at 11,9 percent. Ukrainian president Zelensky has meanwhile found time to also admonish the Dutch cabinet for which he received a standing ovation.

nflation in the Netherlands has been around the highest level in decades for some time now. That is because energy prices and fuel tariffs at the pump had already increased considerably before the conflict in Ukraine. This is partly due to the rapid economic recovery from the Corona crisis, which has created scarcity for many raw materials and also personnel in certain sectors.

The Russian operation in Ukraine subsequently boosted prices even more. Since then, the oil and gas markets have been very concerned that the fuel supply from Russia could dry up. And because energy is becoming more expensive, many other products are also going up in price. Energy is needed to manufacture goods. Companies then pass on their higher costs to consumers.

Hiding the truth

The Dutch government has already tried to implement measures to ease the pain for Dutch consumers. On Friday, an excise duty reduction came into effect, which means that motorists would save a little at the pump – about 8 euros per fill-up. Nevertheless, this kind of support from the cabinet cannot prevent the Dutch from declining in purchasing power this year, Prime Minister Mark Rutte has already warned.

Statistics Netherlands released the figure on Friday following the announcement of eurozone inflation by the European statistical office Eurostat later in the day. The European “harmonized method” was used, which was created to allow a comparison of inflation data from different European countries.

The calculation differs from the usual way in which Statistics Netherlands calculates inflation. Those regular figures will however not be published until April 7.

The financial consequences of 12 percent inflation cannot be compensated for by the government. That is what State Secretary Marnix van Rij (Tax Office) on Friday told the Council of Ministers.

The package of compensation measures that the cabinet announced earlier is not sufficient, according to van Rij. But the “exorbitant increase” of 12 percent that the Central Bureau of Statistics calculated for March “cannot be made up in purchasing power”.

“We will of course wait and see how it develops in the coming weeks and months,” said the minister about the high price increases. The last time inflation was this high was in the 1980s, Van Rij recalled. Yet one cannot compare the situation with the seventies or eighties since there are very low interest rates, which was “an advantage” he said.

Ukrainian refugees

Invoking state emergency law, mayors in the Netherlands are now obliged to organize the reception of Ukrainian refugees. State Secretary Eric Van der Burg announced this after the cabinet meeting on the war in Ukraine. If mayors do not cooperate, they will be sanctioned by the Minister of Justice.

It is a law that has only been enacted twice since the Second World War: Once during the oil crisis to regulate car-free Sundays and once to regulate the Corona curfew.

Now this emergency law is being dusted for the third time because the government is bracing for impact, according to Dutch outlet Nieuwsuur.

“Draconian measures are coming. The State Secretary is taking the first legal step for this,” reporter Arjan Noorlander commented.

Oh look.

They forgot to say it's because thy are NET ZEROing us all and blaming it on The Ukraine.

Taking us all back to the years before oil, when BILLIONS of whales were slaughtered just for lamp fuel.

Quote:
Whaling, after all, was one of the world’s first great multinational businesses, a global enterprise of audacious reach and import. From the 1700s through the mid-1800s, oil extracted from the blubber of whales and boiled in giant pots gave light to America and much of the Western world. The United States whaling fleet peaked in 1846 with 735 ships out of 900 in the world. Whaling was the fifth-largest industry in the United States; in 1853 alone, 8,000 whales were slaughtered for whale oil shipped to light lamps around the world, plus sundry other parts used in hoop skirts, perfume, lubricants and candles.

Like oil, particularly in its early days, whaling spawned dazzling fortunes, depending on the brute labor of tens of thousands of men doing dirty, sweaty, dangerous work. Like oil, it began with the prizes closest to home and then found itself exploring every corner of the globe.

Dutch whaling: The history of whaling in the Netherlands

Five centuries ago, the Netherlands was the center of the world’s whaling industry. It started when the Dutch began exploring the Arctic regions looking for a sea passage to Asia.

Whale oil became the preferred fuel for oil lamps because it burned bright and clear, while oil from livestock and other sources produced a lot of smoke and stank. But whale oil was expensive.

Russia Expected to See Highest Gas Profits in History in 2022 Despite U.S. Sanctions



An analyst with the German Science and Politics Foundation is projecting that Russia will see the highest gas profits in history for 2022 despite sanctions from the U.S. and Western powers.

“Almost half of the Russian budget is based on transactions with oil and gas. The state earns enormously from production taxes and export duties,” said Janis Kluge, a researcher who studies primarily Eurasia-based economics.

Ukraine is demanding sanctions from us and meanwhile raking in billions thanks to the transit of Russian gas.

“President” Zelensky demands that everyone boycott Russia while it is still raking in billions of Russian gas .

Where does that money go? Refugee aid??

Quote:
You only have to look at the map of Ukraine and wonder what is happening. Russia is still paying Ukraine billions in transit fees. What's the deal is on the energy flow from Russia. Gas continues to flow to the West and Russia continues to make transit payments to Ukraine as the war rages on. We still buy Russian energy and then we impose all kinds of sanctions on Russia. As long as Europe continues to import gas from Russia, Ukraine will benefit. Yet Zelensky is constantly demanding that all governments stop purchasing Russian energy.



Russia continues to pay billions to a country it invades? We stand by and watch it…..

Why would Russia jeopardize its economic lifeline and vast quantities of gas by a country it is currently bombing and deftly selecting targets: no pipeline hit? Neither Europe nor Ukraine can do without Russian gas. Putin knows that, which is why things go on behind the scenes.

Europe and Ukraine are asking Americans to make sacrifices, send troops and equipment while continuing to do business with Russia. surprise: the Americans do just as hard.

Why Naftogaz, the Ukrainian state gas company, continues to transport millions of cubic meters of Russian gas to Europe every month. The answer is that Russia continues to pay billions to Ukraine to continue transporting its gas, including to Hungary and Slovakia.

Ukraine earns about $2 billion from Russian gas transit. Russia is cashing in an estimated $ 400 million a day from its gas exports to Europe.

The Ukrainians claim they would like to cut off the flow of Russian gas, but the Europeans depend on it. Ukraine will therefore never sabotage the pipelines with the risk that no aid will continue to come.

Meanwhile, the common man in Europe is expected to accept sky-high prices, while the Ukrainian state-owned company is collecting billions from Russia. Zelensky stages Zoom talks with foreign governments, accusing them of funding the Russian military if they don't pull out of Russia and impose even more sanctions. Meanwhile, he enables Russia to earn hundreds of millions of dollars a day and the Russian state energy company pays the Ukrainian state energy company in “hard currency”.

So the conclusion is that the citizens, the man in the cap, is financing this war through inflation. Not as a result of this war, but because the EU and Haegsche Uitschot is "cashing". Over the citizen's back.

Meanwhile, the US buys billions extra in Russian oil, so that we can pay ten times the price for imported American fracked poisonous rubbish here. In Turkey inflation is like more than 60%, there too the citizen pays the bill.

Nothing will really change at all, only worsen if we don't quarantine "The Hague" definitively.

No, its going into the pockets of the same motherfuckers that it went to when Russia invaded Georgia in 2008 and didn't touch the petrochemical pipelines

Blood flows in the streets but don't touch the oil pipelines, eh?

US increases Russian oil imports by more than 40% – demands Europe maintain sanctions against Russia

As the US demands increasingly tough sanctions from the EU and other countries against Russia, which has already wreaked havoc in the EU, the US is increasing imports of Russian oil and lifting further sanctions, Anti-Spiegel reports .

The US is urging Europe to impose sanctions on Russia, and they are also demanding that the EU give up Russia's oil and gas. Last week, however, the US increased its purchases of Russian oil by more than 40 percent and lifted sanctions on fertilizers from Russia. Mikhail Popov, deputy secretary of the Russian Security Council, stated :

“The United States has forced Europeans to impose anti-Russian sanctions while not only continuing to import oil from Russia itself, but over the past week increased imports of 'black gold' by 43 percent to 100,000 barrels a day!”

EU on a suicide mission: European Parliament calls for complete renunciation of Russian energy



he EU is determined to shoot itself in both feet. Not only are they increasing their bellicose rhetoric against Russia but the European Parliament has now voted by a majority in favour of an immediate import ban on oil, coal and gas from Russia. If this measure is implemented, large parts of Europe's industrial landscape would cease to exist within a very short time.

An impressive two-thirds majority of 513 MEPs voted in favour of a resolution to this effect. It also called for an embargo on Russian nuclear fuel and the complete abandonment of the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. In addition, the EU Commission and the member states were instructed to present a plan to secure the EU’s energy supply security in the short term.

Othmar Karas of the Austrian ÖVP, First Vice-President of the European Parliament, said: “This is a clear bipartisan message: we must do everything to stop Putin.” German MEP Peter Liese (CDU), on the other hand, invoked the Bucha massacre [the perpetrators have not yet been found] and stated in all seriousness: “We must hit Putin and his oligarchs where it hurts them most. That happens to be the energy sector.”

But the fact that the energy sector is Europe’s Achilles’ heel above all has apparently not yet sunk in with the highly-paid MEPs.

Industries will not be able to bounce back from these measures

Contrary to its general political line, the German government is still hesitant to completely cut off Russian energy supplies to the country as persistent warnings of drastic import bans are coming from industry in particular.

The new Bosch boss Stefan Hartung issued the latest warning. He now told the German business daily Handelsblatt: “The fact is: we need gas for production.”

In particular, semiconductor production urgently requires energy security. “If Germany unilaterally refrains from Russian gas deliveries, highly relevant elements of the supply chain will not only break up at Bosch. I have therefore decided not to forego gas supplies for the time being,” explained Hartung. If there were no gas during a delivery stop, “we would not be able to start up again, with all the consequences.” This would mean that “the industrial basis of our business location would disappear, and not just for a few months”.

Economists at the Hans Böckler Foundation expect a delivery stop to result in a greater slump in overall economic output than in the Corona crisis year 2020. In the worst scenario, in which energy costs rise rapidly as a result of an embargo, there will be a “decline in gross domestic product in 2022 by more than six percent,” according to a special analysis by the Foundation’s Institute for Macroeconomics and Business Cycle Research.

Greens intend to squeeze taxpayers harder

And while the Greens are happy that German taxpayers are impoverished by gas prices to further their anti-auto agenda, the tax burden is also set to increase significantly. Would German voters be happy to keep paying for Green folly?

The German Tax Union is expecting a re-run of the solidarity surcharge due to the immense costs caused by the Corona pandemic and Ukraine war. “The financial burden on the federal government is increasing rapidly every day because of all the crises,” said union president Thomas Eigenthaler to the Stuttgarter Zeitung and the Stuttgarter Nachrichten. From his point of view, these costs “cannot be borne without an update of the solidarity surcharge”.

In the end, Eigenthaler said, politicians would not be able to withstand the fact that additional financial solidarity would only be provided by a few taxpayers. He therefore predicted that the federal government would “sooner or later ask about 80 percent of taxpayers to pay up once more”.

Ukraine no longer at the top of the news cycle, but saunas are

The biggest problem facing Central Europeans by far, according to the official narrative, is global warming, followed by Corona in second place and the war against Ukraine now only in third place. All three problem areas have the potential to ruin at least Germany as a business destination sooner or later. In general, the fight against the remaining part of Germany’s economic power seems to be a high priority for politicians and the mass media, although recently some relief has been promised, at least for the German arms industry.

Germany’s natural gas storage facilities are currently largely empty. This is according to Klaus Müller, head of the Federal Network Agency, as reported by t-online. Saving gas is therefore urgent.

Not only diesel drivers and mask critics, but also sauna-goers are all taking the blame for the self-inflicted impending end of the world. Because “when asked whether saunas and large single flats could still be heated constantly in the future: No, I think that in a gas emergency that would definitely no longer be justifiable,” according to Müller.

That is certainly an unequivocal statement. Not only is German industry, with its still far too high production capacities, ruining the climate and working for President Vladimir Putin, but large single flats and private saunas are now also unacceptable.
