Greens turn to coal
Poor planning and ideological obsessions have put Europe in a situation where we have to fall back on the dirtiest of fossil fuels to keep the lights on and engines running. An utter Green debacle.
The headline at Zerohedge says it all:
Pictured above is Rob Jetten, Minister for Climate and Energy Policy in the Netherlands. He’s a member of D66, the fervently pro-EU, pro-Davos, pro-2030 Energy Transition party that forms part of the governing coalition.
The problem goes beyond Holland and Germany; the rest of the EU is also turning once again to coal:
Whether you believe in the conventional mainstream climate-change narrative or not, I think we can agree: this sorry saga reveals the complete bankruptcy of the contemporary Green agenda. We all know that coal is by far the dirtiest of all the fossil fuels, yet instead of managing a graceful, long-term, sustainable transition to a post-carbon future, which is inevitable given the finite supply of fossil fuels on our planet, they have landed us in the current predicament. So here we are: it’s more politically correct these days for us to generate power from South African coal than Russian gas, with energy rationing on the horizon.
