Your Survival Guy’s “boots on the ground” report from France is that the French are concerned that winter is coming and that they won’t be able to handle it. They feel that the energy shortage they’re facing heading into the cold season is a real threat. The elites and the Great Reset pushers have put Europe on the edge, and they act as if it’s a good thing. They don’t mind if the French, Germans, or Poles freeze or if the Ukrainians and Russians die so long as greenhouse gas emissions are reduced in the process. The Wall Street Journal’s Notable & Quotable column caught Politico Europe saying the quiet part out loud, celebrating Vladimir Putin as the top scorer in their “Green 28,” making him the most powerful of “POLITICO’s annual ranking of the 28 power players behind Europe’s green agenda.”
Politico Europe writes nauseatingly:
By invading Ukraine and manipulating energy supplies to undermine European support for Kyiv, Russian President Vladimir Putin has achieved something generations of green campaigners could not — clean energy is now a fundamental matter of European security.
The political response from the EU was swift: Within weeks of the February 24 invasion, a plan was sketched out aimed at unhooking the Continent’s energy ties from Moscow. It leaned on three pillars: cutting oil, gas and coal supplies from Russia; getting gas and other fossil fuels from elsewhere; and massively speeding up the roll out of renewable power and energy saving measures.
“Renewables give us the freedom to choose an energy source that is clean, cheap, reliable, and ours,” EU Green Deal chief Frans Timmermans said less than two weeks after Putin’s tanks rolled in.
Seven months on, a POLITICO survey of data on clean energy, energy savings and policies shows that the first signs of that green surge are appearing. Analysts are in little doubt that the change is structural, permanent and historic.
“We will look back at this situation in 10 years time and see, OK, that was the moment where we really got serious about the green transition and we really had the big green acceleration,” said Simone Tagliapietra, a research fellow at the Brussels-based think tank Bruegel.
Action Line: The twisted minds that would celebrate a war for its ability to cut greenhouse gas emissions want to run your government, your investments, and your life. Vote for candidates who promise freedom, live in a free state, and invest with someone who puts your needs before their own social agenda. If you need help, let’s talk.
