How Stunning And Brave

And hilarious and ridiculous. Absurd, too.

And really, really, dumb. That the media could think anybody is interested in this nonsense anymore, I mean. German catastrophist activists have been performing this dopey performance art ritual since the 80s, at least.

Climate activists ‘prepared to risk lives’ to stop German coalmine – Hundreds of protesters prepare to defy police at abandoned village of Lützerath in North Rhine Westphalia.

Expert At Losing Bets Waxes Poetic On Gambling

If the Germans don’t know about losing energy bets, nobody does. Old Vlad better listen up.

Putin has gambled away gas leverage, says German vice-chancellor – Robert Habeck says ‘half of our eggs were in the basket of Putin’ but Germany is now recovering capacity.

Vladimir Putin has gambled away his gas leverage over Europe, Germany’s vice-chancellor has claimed as he sounded a note of cautious optimism over his country’s energy supplies during a visit to Norway.

Green, Blue…

They’re all too yellow to admit that none of this will deliver enough energy in their lifetimes, if ever at all.

Germany and Norway reach blue hydrogen agreement – Germany’s RWE and Norway’s Equinor have agreed to supply Germany with low-emissions hydrogen fuel. The long-term plan is to provide 100% cleanly sourced green hydrogen.

What is blue hydrogen? For years, the prospect of clean hydrogen fuel — which emits mostly water vapor when burned — has excited those hoping to abandon fossil fuels.

However, the production of completely clean “green” hydrogen, which is separated from water with power generated by clean renewables such as solar and wind, is not currently viable at a large scale.

The alternative “blue” hydrogen, which is produced by burning gas, remains a cheaper option and aims to capture and store more than 95% of emissions.

Try To Remember…

The kind of December
When gas was there and temps so mellow…

Nobody said “saving the planet” would be easy.

Snow covers Germany amid gas crunch – As Germany experienced its coldest December in a decade, the government implored residents to exercise restraint on turning up the heat.

“Germany is still very, very far from having its gas needs totally covered for the next two years. Because of this, in spite of the cold, I implore you to exercise restraint with gas use.”

More Windmills ASAP!

Our solar panals don’t seem to be working properly here in Germany at the moment. It’s all dark and cloudy or something. And white. Geez. Why is it so cold all of a sudden?

This “saving the planet” stuff can be a real ice-cold bitch.

Germany at risk of gas shortages as consumption cutting target missed – Country has scrambled to open up new sources of energy since start of Ukraine war.

Germany is saving less gas than necessary to rule out shortages this winter, the head of the German grid agency has said, as the country missed its crucial target of a 20% cut in consumption last week amid dropping temperatures.

A Massive Energy Cost Rise?

But where did this massive rise in energy costs come from? Who is responsible?

I know. We’ll ask the government to help us!

1 in 10 Germans had not yet heated by November despite cold weather: Survey – Germans have significantly changed their heating habits due to massive rise in energy costs, research finds.

German Of The Day: Energiepreis-Stoppschild

That means energy price stop sign.

This is a brilliant new German invention (both the word and the concept) meaning that energy providers must first explain why they will be raising prices before going ahead and raising them anyway. Thanks German government (the ones who created this energy crisis in Germany in the first place), German citizens are most certainly saying, we wouldn’t be able to sleep soundly at night without you.

Germany to force energy providers to justify future price hikes – The German government plans to allow energy providers to raise prices next year only if objectively justified, the economy ministry said on Saturday, denying a media report that Berlin planned a ban on all energy price hikes for consumers.

Remember The Arms Race?

Now we’re in a subsidy race.

It’s a subsidize the renewable energy sector race. The rules are simple: The country that wastes the most taxpayer money on technologies that can never, under any realistic scenario, meet the electricity demands of the given country, wins. And the others turn Green with envy.

Analysis: U.S. green subsidies heighten fears for German industry – U.S. subsidies add to threats to German manufacturing base.

Time To Ship In That Evil US-Amerikan Fracking Gas

It doesn’t stink anymore either these days, for some reason.

Germany finishes construction of its first LNG import terminal – Completion of project in just 200 days eases fears of gas shortage amid cut in Russian supplies.

Liquefied gas is to secure the energy supply in the coming years. The first plant has already been completed in Wilhelmshaven, but terminals are also likely to follow at other locations.

We Germans Condemn The Iranian Regime’s Brutality Toward Protestors

As well as their open hostility toward Israel.

But boy oh boy their gas sure doesn’t stink.

Germany in secret talks to buy Iranian oil amid Russian war sanctions – The chief economist for the partially state-owned bank LBBW in the southwestern German state of Baden-Württemberg announced that Germany is engaged in secret talks with the Islamic Republic of Iran to buy Iranian oil.

“Intensive talks are already being held behind the scenes with Venezuela, Iran or Algeria to cover Germany’s oil and gasoline needs.”
