    Default The green energy disaster that is Germany

    This is a precautionary tale of what the Greentards, like the ones that just signed off on the Inflation Expansion Act, want to bring to America...

    In Germany, energy is so unreliable and often in short supply now that the Government has started a concerted campaign for Germans to cut back on energy consumption by 30%.



    They are telling Germans to take the equivalent of a 'Navy shower' too. That is, limit shower water use to three minutes or less.

    This is on top of energy now skyrocketing in price.

    Germany sets winter gas levy amid warnings of its impact
    German consumers learned on Monday how much extra they will have to pay for gas in the winter months. Companies are currently not permitted to pass on their increased costs.
    https://www.dw.com/en/germany-sets-w...act/a-62806667

    In a truly Orwellian gesture, the government is tossing the extra costs mostly on energy companies who might not be able to afford it. Remember the California disaster that paralleled this where ENRON made bank?

    Yep, solar, wind, wood burning stoves... A future rooted in the past when electricity hadn't been invented yet...

    They get points for having not taken them all down immediately so that they can never be used again, which I have heard is the American practice.

    They're actually building lots of new coal plants. And they are chopping down whole forests to create wood pellets to heat their homes since natural gas is now a verboten thing.

    They shouldn't have relied on Russia like Trump told them. They should have relied on nuclear power.

    Actually, it is a perfect picture in real time of what happens when a country is led by wokeism.
    I do find it interesting how the malcontent lefties try and plug their ears when the truth comes out.

    Not nearly as alarming as the current mass extinction event and eco-disaster taking hold on the planet. But hey....

    The extreme right funded by the fossil fuel companies is not known to be very truthful.

    As Gustave Le Bo lamented: “The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduces them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”

    The latest I've heard is that the Greens are open to leaving the remaining nuclear power stations open.

    They got rid of nuclear power because the tards in charge were afraid of a Fukushima happening. That's what happens when you put greentards in charge of your energy policy. Natural gas from Russia seemed a no-brainer when it was first started. But things change politically in the blink of an eye and foresight is far harder to get right than hindsight.
