It took the Russian war in Ukraine to expose the scam of “green” energy

Written by Ethan Huff

The West’s forced transition away from reliable fossil fuel energy into “green” energy alternatives has proven to be disastrous. And thanks to the war in Ukraine, Western economies are finally waking up to that fact.

As we reported, the European Union (EU) is slated to bring oil and gas production into the green energy fold – something that even just a year ago would have been unheard of.

Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin’s decision to stop the deep state from using Ukraine as a proxy nation to commit atrocities led to sanctions, which led to energy shortages, which led Western Europe to realize that if it does not revert back to fossil fuel use, it will be lights out very soon.

Even the corporate-controlled media, which has long praised green energy, is now admitting that we had better get those oil pumps and drilling operations going or else we can all expect a third-world style collapse come winter.

“… an energy-starved world is turning to coal as natural-gas and oil shortages exacerbated by Russia’s war against Ukraine lead countries back to the dirtiest fossil fuel,” the Journal reported.

Going “green” means destroying your economy and going into POVERTY

It turns out that fossil fuels do not have to be the “dirty” sources of energy that the greenies have long claimed they are. There are clean, safe and efficient ways to pull up fossil fuels from the earth and use them to power businesses, homes, vehicles and so much more without destroying the planet.

The EU plans to keep policies in place to ensure that fossil fuels are generated cleanly and responsibly, but no longer will they be on the chopping block for a full phase-out and ban like before.

Even “clean coal” is making a comeback as it is needed along with the others to keep heaters going, plants growing and the world economy flowing. Wind, solar and wishful thinking are simply not enough to keep the lights on.

“… from the U.S. to Europe to China, many of the world’s largest economies are increasing short-term coal purchases to ensure sufficient supplies of electricity, despite prior pledges by many countries to reduce their coal consumption to combat climate change,” another report explains.

There is actually now so much demand for coal that prices in the global market are spiking dramatically – or at least this is the reason we are being told for the massive jump on the charts that has been seen ever since early 2021.

Benchmark prices for coal reached new records this year, one example being spot coal prices at Australia’s Newcastle port, a key supplier to Asia. There, oil topped $400 a ton for the first time ever last month.

“Hilariously, the push for coal is being led by Europe, ground zero of the ‘green movement’ which finally realized that one can’t burn fake virtue or melt posing in front of camera in the winter to keep warm, and is boosting coal purchases to ensure it can keep power flowing to homes and factories after Russia cut gas supplies to the continent,” reported Zero Hedge.

“Germany, which not long ago promised to eliminate coal as a power source by 2030, is among the nations now importing more.”

Instead of phasing out coal completely by 2030, Germany could be more reliant on it than ever before by that time. The same goes for its nuclear power plants, which were slated to shut down but will now be resurrected and put back to use in order to avoid a total economic collapse.

French energy firms tell people to CUT BACK on energy usage immediately, or face catastrophic outages

Written by Ramon Tomey

Three major energy firms in France told people to cut back on their energy usage at the soonest, lest the country spirals into an energy crisis.

Executives of the three energy companies – Engie Managing Director Catherine MacGregor, EDF CEO Jean-Bernard Lévy and TotalEnergies CEO Patrick Pouyanné – issued the admonishment in a joint statement published in the French newspaper Le Journal de Dimanche.

The three bigwigs pointed to rising prices as a result of the energy crisis following the Russia-Ukraine war as a matter that threatens the “social and political cohesion” of France.

“Acting this summer will allow us to be better prepared to tackle next winter and, in particular, to preserve our gas reserves,” they said.

“We therefore call for awareness and collective and individual action so that each of us – each consumer [and] each company – changes behavior and immediately limits consumption of energy, electricity, gas and petroleum products.”

“The effort must be immediate, collective and massive,” the three energy executives noted, adding that “every gesture counts.”

France is one of many countries in the European Union (EU) that have been crippled by Russia’s decision to turn off supplies of natural gas flowing through the Nord Stream pipeline, in response to the West’s sanctions on Moscow. The resulting energy shortage, coupled with an over-dependence on clean energy under Paris’ “zero coal” policy, put France in a precarious situation.

In a bid to address this energy shortage, the French government has proposed restarting the Emile Huchet coal-fired power plant near the country’s northwestern border with Germany.

According to Energy Central, the French Ministry of Ecological Transition revealed plans to reactivate the fossil-fuel plant “as a precaution, given the Ukrainian situation.” The ministry added that it is not ruling out operating the power plant, set to produce approximately one percent of the country’s electricity, “for a few more hours if we need it next winter.”

Germany, Italy also reeling from shutoff of Russian gas

The joint statement from MacGregor, Lévy and Pouyanné followed neighboring Germany inching closer toward economic collapse. The abrupt cutoff of natural gas from Russia has left Berlin scrambling to figure out how to maintain ample energy supply come the winder.

German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck, who also serves as the country’s minister for economic affairs and climate action, remarked that he may be forced to shut down industry in order to keep the German power grid afloat. He previously appealed to the public to conserve energy.

“Companies would have to stop production [and] lay off their workers. Supply chains would collapse. People would go into debt to pay their heating bills [and those] people would become poorer,” said Habeck, who is a member of the Green Party in the German parliament.

Italy, also affected by the sudden stop of natural gas supply from Russia, took steps to ration its energy supply. Authorities issued a mandate limiting the use of heating and air conditioning within government buildings. The law, which took effect on May 21, prohibited schools and public offices from setting their thermostats below 25 C (77 F) in the summer and above 19 C (66 F) during the winter.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi remarked that while “a gas embargo is not on the table,” he stressed that the country would “follow the decision of the EU” on the matter.”

Nevertheless, Draghi called on Italians to do their part in keeping energy prices low through a challenge issued in the form of a question: “Do we want to have peace [in Ukraine] or do we want to have the air conditioning on?”
