US denies ‘preposterous’ claim they ‘sabotaged’ Nord Stream 2 – as Trump shares video of Biden promising to ‘bring an end’ to pipeline and asks ‘World War III anyone?’

Trump shared a February 7, 2022 video on Truth Social of Joe Biden pledging to ‘stop’ Germany and Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline if Russia invades Ukraine. The same video was shared by Russia’s foreign ministry while accusing Biden of being behind the explosions that caused the Baltic Sea gas leaks. Asked for clarification on Trump’s stance, his spokesman told DailyMail.com that the former president’s statements ‘speak for themselves’.

The US government is denying ‘preposterous’ allegations that it is behind a gas leak in the Baltic Sea on Wednesday.

It comes as Donald Trump suggested that ‘World War III’ could be near while sharing a video of President Joe Biden threatening to stop Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Mysterious and alarming leaks were found in both Nord Stream pipelines this week, prompting the European Union to call it the result of a ‘deliberate act.’

Multiple accusations have already been lobbed at the Kremlin amid ever-growing hostilities over its illegal invasion of Ukraine. 

Meanwhile Moscow is pointing the finger at the United States, declaring that Washington is ‘obliged’ to explain its alleged role in the ‘sabotage.’

A US official denied the accusations, according to the Washington Post. DailyMail.com has reached out to the White House for comment.

Musk: Without oil and gas, ‘civilization will crumble’

That transition is by no means a simple or an easy one. The Tesla CEO noted that it is one “of the biggest challenges the world has ever faced.”

Speaking at an energy conference in Stavanger, Norway, on August 29, Tesla CEO Elon Musk reiterated a claim that he made earlier this year: “I think we need to use oil and gas in the short term, because otherwise civilization will crumble.”

Amid an energy crisis in Europe — which some anticipate will get much worse in the winter — high gas prices, and a grid rendered more unstable in the U.S. by reliance on so-called sustainable energy, Musk claimed that “we actually need more oil and gas, not less.”

Though he indicated that “we have a clear path to a sustainable energy future,” it is not a path that can be treaded quickly. Musk said the transition “will take some decades to complete.”

NASA warns the electric grid faces serious risk from geomagnetic storms with sun at peak cycle

Given the ubiquity of sensitive technology today, a coronal mass ejection (CME) produced by a flare like that witnessed by Carrington could “blow out transformers in power grids” or cause high-frequency radio signals “to become degraded or completely absorbed,” resulting in a radio blackout.

The sun’s magnetic field undergoes a cycle approximately every 11 years. According to NASA, “The sun transitions from relatively calm to active and stormy, and then quiet again.” When it gets stormy, the impact can be highly destructive.

The sun’s current stage of transition is much more active than scientists had predicted in 2020. “At its most active…the sun is freckled with sunspots and its magnetic poles reverse.”

The monthly average number of sunspots at this stage in the solar cycle far exceeds the number forecasted by scientists. According to the Space Weather Prediction Center, in July the sunspot number was 91.4, whereas the predicted value was 42.8.
